Hold down an Application on the homescreen untill they all wiggle, then find the app you want gone, press the little "X" on the app, and then you can delete it.

You can also switch around your icons, put them to different pages switch them around and such, if you havent figured that out or didnt know that yet.
You can also delete the application from on itunes, it will still be on your phone though, or vise versa.
Happy New Year.

To remove from Cydia...
Open Cydia and go to "Manage > Packages > and then the App you want to remove". Hit "Modify" in the TRH corner and then just "Remove" and "Confirm".
To remove from Installer...
Open Installer and go to "Categories > Installed Packages > and then the App you want to remove". "Uninstall" should be in the TRH corner.
Hope this helps.

Yeay! Thank you! I was afraid that I would be stuck with some of the free [annoying] apps that I enthusiastically downloaded on Day 1.
