    I love blinq launcher but can't figure out how to remove unwanted app shortcuts and widgets from home screen on my Samsung Galaxy Note 3. Long press on items does nothing and I do not see any other way to remove them....

    This may seem silly but have you tried clearing cache....? Pulling your battery and restarting your phone may help too.....

    This may also seem silly, but are you long pressing them (Press and hold) before you try to drag them?

    I am holding before dragging as with any other launcher b I've ever tried but I have not tried clearing the cache. I have pulled the battery as I have to do at least 2 battery changes a day or I lose power. Oh the days when my note 3 was new and a single full battery lasted all day. Seems forever ago...

    Have you checked your launcher settings. I know with Apex & Nova Launcher, there's a setting that locks your desktop so you can't accidentally move/delete an app icon while in your pocket, purse, or if someone else uses your device.
    This feature may have been activated on your device.

    Note 3 batteries are cheap. Replace your old one with a new one.
