    Press down on the icon and we will then be able to drag it
    .
    We have to keep the finger on the screen until it is at the desired location. We can do this with every icon on the phone. We will feel the phone vibrate when the app is selected, then drag it and let go. We can also remove these applications from the panel.

    To remove an application, we will need to press and hold it again like we would when moving it, then drag it to 'REMOVE' in white lettering at the top next to a white trash can
    .
    'REMOVE' and the trash can will then be highlighted in red, which means that the application is in the right place for us to remove it. Let go of it and the application will be removed from the panel, but not the phone. We can repeat this process with any application.
