If you would like to uninstall & remove a certain app from your Nexus 5:

1. Click on the app drawer icon
2. Find the app you wish to uninstall
3. Select the app and hold your finger down on it till the "uninstall" menu shows up on the top
4. Drag the app up to where it says "install"

**Please note that doing these steps on the home screen does not uninstall the app, it just removes it from the homescreen**
