8. After a few seconds your application will be uninstalled.

9. To uninstall more apps, just repeat steps 5-7.

That's about all there is to uninstalling apps. Like I said, it's actually pretty easy, but it is hidden and a lot of people may not notice it. You can uninstall any app that you downloaded, and some that came pre-installed on the device, but not all of them. Mostly because some of them interact with other features on your phone and could mess those features up.
