    it seems there's a trick that i'm missing because i'm only successful 10% of the time i want to move an icon from one screen to the other. most of the time i have to delete the icon, swipe to next screen, then add it again.

    No trick, but if you have a case on it, take it off. Then pull icon/widget all the way to the edge of the screen. I grab the side OPPOSITE of where I'm dragging it to achieve this.

    long hold on the widget/icon, drag it to the far side of the screen, it will bring you to the the next screen, repeat if necessary

    yup, just keep dragging. sometimes its harder to do(especially with a case on) but just try it out.

    If it helps, you can also place the widget you want to move to a place already occupied by an app or widget. Then you can just swipe from side to side till you get to the home screen you want to put the app/widget to. then just move it to an available spot. :)

    Activate the icon, park it over an existing icon so can't set itself, and then you can slide the screens underneath. Works like a charm.

    that's the way I do it too..i find it way easier to move around widgets on stock then on launcherpro ... I just move it to a already used spot & then i slide to the next screen.

    Caloy is right on. That is the way I move widgets around as well!

    i just long hold it at the edge until the screen flips. works every time for me. but i have also done the place it on top of another icon trick as well.
