1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Click and hold on a blank part of the home screen to add thing, or drag them from the shade window (the bottom one you flick up). To remove a widget or app, click and hold on the icon and drag it to that bottom shade, it will display a red trash can thing.

    Right... I must have missed the part about removing them from the menu, I already know how to remove them from the home screen.

    1. To remove an app you need to go to settings -> applications -> Manage apps.. it will show all installed apps and you can select one and uninstall it.

    2.Another way to uninstall apps, that were installed from market place:
    Marketplace>Menu button>Downloads>
    This will give you a list, select the one you want to remove. Uninstall will show up on the bottom-right of the screen.

    This will completely remove the app.

    Your home screens are the 3 screens that are always up. The slide up drawer> Think of it as your start menu on a PC. It holds everything. While your home screen is like your desktop and is just shortcuts.

    This should help.............
