Remove software from iPad

Apple products, including the iPhone and iPad, are highly intuitive and easy to use. However, one thing that stumped me when I used an iPad for the first time was removing installed applications.

I had downloaded several apps to try out (all free, of course :) ), and after picking a few to keep, I wanted to delete the rest.

It turns out to be really easy, the only problem being that you don’t have a control panel/settings page to remove them, nor any immediately noticeable help tooltips.
