You can swipe your finger up and down to browse through the list. To launch an app, just tap it.

If you would like to quickly scroll through the list of apps, slide your finger along the vertical letter index on the far right side of the screen (on your iPhone it’s very small letters) and the list will quickly navigate to that position. See below image:
