    I've done a search but cannot find the answer. How do I move an app from the last page of apps, to the first page?

    Tap the app until it shakes (as if to delete it), drag the app left to the side of the screen. If you get left enough, the page will change to the former page. That can be done as long/often as you like.
    Hope, this will help you. :)

    Ask away when you need to. We are all here to assist each other. ;)

    That's really odd because it didn't work for me. What did work though, was Tapping the app till it shook, dragging it to the bottom of the page, releasing it then swiping the pages until I was at the page I wanted the app on.

    That works too. You are putting the app on the 'dock' then moving to a page. If your 'dock' was full you would have to use the other method. ;)

    The "drag it to the next screen" doesn't seem to work for me either (elderly fingers maybe ;) ?) so I always leave a free space in my "dock" bar for moments like these.

    Yes it is a bit tricky. If I want to move the icon to the right I am always carefully to put my finger as far left as I can on the icon. That way I have enough of the icon 'showing' to poke it far enough off the page to trigger the move, and the opposite for a move to the left.

    Here is another trick: you have three apps on page 2 and you want all three apps on page 1 (or vice versa), put all three apps into one folder by pressing one app until it wiggles, carefully push it onto a second app. This will create a folder. Then take the third app and put it in the newly created folder. This is being done while the apps are still wiggling. Then press the folder and move it to the edge of the screen until the target page appears, then at destination, release folder. Turn off wiggling by pressing home button.

    Folder ready to be moved. Press and hold app to the edge of the screen.

    Folder at the destination. If you want to remove the apps from this folder just drag them out of the folder and the folder will vanish.
