    At the bottom of the screen. Would like the most used left to right. Haven’t figured out a way.

    Scroll over to more and click edit. Just move everything you want to show to favorites and then deactivate anything else. Then you can re order the favorites.

    Anyway to get rid of them entirely? I don’t use that crap in iMessage

    Edit: so it looks like I can clear all of them but the App Store logo on the bottom of the iMessage. How annoying.

    I find a few of them really useful, but most are marketing retail/useless. Why do I need a Starbucks widget - to text people I am at Starbucks?

    I do like the Music widget.

    Yep. I think the Starbucks iMessage app lets you send gift cards to others, but seriously, how often does one do that? I find the cloud service iMessage apps particularly useful, such as Dropbox Or OneDrive. I can send documents to colleagues using iMessage very easily using these apps.

    Tap and hold for 2 seconds on the grey “A” (for Apps) that is directly to the left of your text field., then release. That will hide the iMessage apps until you tap that A again.

    Yes, but I thought you wanted to get rid of the "A" because it
    annoying?
