The easiest way to delete an app is via Launchpad in OS X. You can access Launchpad via function key F4 or by doing a thumb and three finger pinch on a trackpad. Once you are in Launchpad you will see a list of all your apps. Hold the mouse down on one of the apps until they all start bouncing. Apps installed from the Mac App Store will have a black and white X at the top left corner. Click on it to delete the app.
