What if you're trying to drag an app, but your finger accidentally hits the little x and deletes it? Is there an "undo" feature?

okay, I played with this. When you select the x you get a prompt warning you that it will delete it and all the data.
The next time you sync in Itunes it will put it back so if you don't want it again, either set it in itunes applications tab to not sync all and select the ones you want to sync, or delete it from itunes altogether before you sync.
