    If you use launcher pro one of the options is to hide apps from the app drawer.

    You would have to go back through the menu to unhide them but it might work for you.

    Launcher Pro
    menu>preferences>general>hide apps

    I use launcher pro for that as well. It is a great launcher in general and isn't laggy at all for me. Not any more than other launchers anyway. You may want to play around with some of the advanced settings for memory usage and see if that helps.

    Silly question, but then how hard is it to USE the apps you hid? Do you have to go back into LP settings, unhide them, use them, then hide them again? :confused:

    Yes, unless you've also placed the app on your home screen somewhere.

    I usually try to keep installed apps to a minimum in that if I haven't used one in a month or so I'll remove it. Though, looking at my app tray now, I have had shazam installed for months and don't think I have ever used it.

    But, this can be useful to keep things clean and hide stuff like the beautiful widget icon where you can just access it from the widget itself.

    Yeah, that would be required to use a hidden app. I only hide apps that I never use through the drawer. Tasker for example I have always in the notification bar or mylock which starts when my phone boots and I never need to go into the actual app.

    you can always use the search button. tap the search button, click on the "G" select apps, type it out, and it will come up. thats what i do.

    there is also a password protected app....app....in the market somewhere. i can't remember what it is called, but i remember droid-life or an.droid-life talking about it a couple weeks ago.
