Initially, one application page is available. To create a new page, drag the application to the right edge of the screen. It may take a while for the new page to appear. To delete the page, move all applications to another start screen. If there are no applications on the page, it will be deleted.

If you have more than one page, the bright dot in the dot row above the Dock indicates the page you’re currently viewing. You can move the application to another page and create new pages:

  • If there are other dots to the left or right of the light dot, you can drag the app to the right side of the screen to move it to the next page in that direction. You can also swipe left to see the apps on this page.
  • If there are no other dots to the right of the light dot, dragging the application to the right side of the screen creates a new page.
