    how can I delete icons for stupid useless junk like photo booth?

    The squiggly icon thing doesn't work as that icon never shows the X to delete it?

    If it doesn't show it then I am thinking you can't delete it ~ let's see what others chime in with!

    I'm really hoping that's not the case (although if it is, I can certainly understand why people hate apple)

    You can't delete any of the Apple apps that it came with. If you don't want to see them, stick them in a folder somewhere out of the way.

    There's a jailbreak app to delete (or hide) the apple apps. Don't know what the app is called though

    It's not an Apple thing... It's a technology thing. You can't delete the NASCAR app from a Sprint Evo either.

    It would be nice to have a Settings option to hide icons for stuff you didn't use, but I'm not so bothered that I'd jailbreak.

    All bloatware on htc evo, including nascar, can be removed or frozen after a good rooting.

    I dislike ugly icons and was most annoyed when I couldn't delete stock apple icons like YouTube Notes etc. So they got banished to a folder as far to the rear as I could throw them.

    Happily I need never look at their foul features again. I really though apple could do better in icon design.

    Once you Jailbreak, you can use SBSettings and hide any icons you don't like on your Springboard.

    Yeah, the jailbreak app you would want to use is "Poof." It easily and quickly hides applications. You browse through the alphabetized list, turn off the icon, re-spring and poof! :)D)...the icon is gone.

    Of course, the key term here is jailbreak, as you've got to have a jailbroken iPad to get Poof. Until you do jailbreak (or if you don't want to), the only option is hiding them away in a folder on a screen far, far away ...

    Poof should come preinstalled with SBSettings, no need to install it separately to have yet another icon on the home screen, or under the Settings.

    But until a jb for iPad 2 gets released, this is not really an option.

    Huh. I went to SBSettings>More>Hide Icons. ... Now I remember why I have the separate Poof icon/app. SBSettings crashes whenever I try to run Poof through it. Dunno why...

    Either way, it IS a moot point if you aren't jailbroke.

    To delete unwanted Apps, Touch and hold the App Icon for 3 seconds. All App Icons will jiggle with a red 'x' sign on the top left. Touch the 'X' sign and the App is removed.

    To stop running Apps: press home button twice, you will see all tuning Apps at the bottom. Touch any for 3 seconds and all will jiggle with a red minus sign. Touch the minus sign and the App is removed from memory.

    Cheers

    Yea I was just about to say poof comes in sbsettings. Most people don't know if you have sbsettings on your iPad, you can go into the sbsettings/more/options and set the sbsettings page to fall down the middle, instead of it dropping on the upper left side.
