After a few moments you will see a screen appear with some options: to proceed with the uninstallation, just tap the Uninstall item . and then the OK one in the confirmation request that will appear immediately after.
Sometimes it can happen that applications do not have an easily visible icon (or maybe they are plugins for other applications), and in this case you have to follow a different path.
