    Is there a way to get more than 2 desktop screens? Also, I have apps on desktop I don't necessarily want there and want to remove them but don't know how. Seems like there should be a trash can or some sort of folder you can have all your apps in. What am I missing here ? Thanks.

    It's not a problem...touch and hold any icon in the second screen..now when they start to 'jiggle' (Apple's term not mine!), touch and hold the app you want to move to the next screen and 'slide' it towards the right hand edge of the screen - wait a while - and a new screen will appear and the app will be moved there..

    Have fun..enjoy your iPad

    Deletion:
    touch and hold any icon, when it starts to jiggle, press on the red x to delete. A popup appears and you just have to confirm the deletion.

    This should help all new iPad 2 and iOS users:

    *edit*
    Yes if you press the little X on the "jiggling" app that deletes if from you iPad. What I have done is on page 4 of iPod touch I have a folder called Junk. These are Apps that I hardly ever use, aren't very good, but I don't necessarily want to get rid of right now.

    *edit 2*
    Also deleting the App will also delete all associated data stored in that App. Saved game data, text files, ToDos, etc. If you have bought a number of Apps I would recommend sync with your computer and having it transfer those apps over so you have local copies on the computer. It can be faster to re-add programs from your iTunes instead of re-downloading them from the App Store.
