how can i move apps to one of my homescreens?

I've all these apps that I've downloaded, and all these spare (empty) homepages - is there a way to move the app shortcuts to my homescreens? Thanks

yep. Definitely. Method below should work, not got S2 but think it's standard android.

Well not move to but copy to homescreens. press a blank space on homescreen want to put shortcut on and menu should come up.
Press shortcuts
Press Apps (takes a while to bring up list if there's lots)
Select the one you want to put there.

Can also add widgets and other things choosing different options from the menu.

If you've Ice cream sandwich on there I think there's another way.

No worries have fun, try widgets too :)

For furure reference and if Samsung get ICS working.
On Ice Cream Sandwich if you press and hold the app in app drawer you can drag it direct to homescreen and drop it there.
