    I just use my last home screen for icons that I rarely or never use. Just keep moving that jiggling icon to the right until it makes a new screen for "forgettables".

    Make sure all your friends with iPads and iPhones on IOS5 enable it too, for tons of emoji fun!
    I had no clue about this!! Thanks a million!!!!

    Thanks everyone for all of these awesome tips!

    No one has mentioned this yet, but I thought I would just mention the gestures:
    1. With four fingers toward the bottom of the screen, swipe up to get your task bar.
    2. With four fingers toward the center of the screen, pinch to close an app.
    3. With four fingers, swipe right to toggle between apps.

    I think those are the only three, or the only three I know!

    Also, for those that don't know...
    To get accented letters, such as , , or , hold the letter down for a couple of seconds on the keyboard and a little selection of different accented letters pops up.
    furthermore be aware that when you are typing fast and if you drag quickly up from letter that you have to press to get accented letters, you will end up with accented letter that match your language. If you have two such letters in your language ( as we do in Croatia, i.e.: c -> č ć) then you move slightly to the right to get second letter. If you stay a second longer on keyboard letter (c in my example) then you will be presented with full range of accented letters option as Milliebert stated. I found this feature very helpfull for fast 2-hand typing including proper accented letters.

    Cool, never knew this. Just waiting for a notification now so I can test ;-)
