I have been an iOS user for many years, and I understand that long-pressing an icon on the home screen will allow me to delete it, but I can't think of a single example of performing a long-press within an app. There may be a couple apps that do it, but without a tutorial (as many gesture-heavy apps have these days), I don't believe it is obvious.

Iconography can sometimes be challenging due to the difficulties involved in associating them with domain specific meaning. If you want the user to upload an image it will be more explicit if you used a text-based trigger, e.g an "Upload Image" button.

Yes there is. Swiping from the top activates an overpanel on both iOs and Android (I don't know about Blackberry). However, I don't think this is what you're looking for. The obvious reason against implementing it this way, is that it will conflict with the native behavior of your phone. Besides, how would the user know from where to swipe to trigger the ...

Apple uses a thing called the Tab Bar to solve this particular problem, sort of... It's supposed to give you different options/views of the same or similar data. In practice it's used a lot more like a tab between different modes of operation and different datas. I think this is your best possible approach, here, and will give you room to add more ...
