    I searched the market and only found one, but one of the reviews said that it locks the app but you still see it in your app drawer. Is there a way to hide an App so it cannot be seen if someone goes through your phone?

    Thanks.

    Oh OK. I never seen that before, but I started pressing crap and found it. It seems you hide it and its gone from your drawer (if it was on your home screen it stays there so it has to be removed from there yourself and only be in the drawer)

    After its gone from the drawer the only way to access it is to go back to the hidden box and un click it so it appears back in the drawer and you can use it, then once your done with it you need to hide it again. At least thats what I made of it.

    I was thinking something a little more buried like having a location in a sub folder on ES file explorer or file expert but hey its better than what I was aware of this morning.

    Thanks agadida!!

    The Go Launcher Ex home replacement has the ability to hide apps from the app screen. It's actually really easy to use. I like using it because it also gives me a tab that displays all my currently running programs I can terminate :)

    Regina launcher 3d has app hiding feature. It even has a 'hidden workspace' that needs a code to access. You can place apps there and hide them from your regular 'workspace'. My gf uses it to hide her gallery from her son (among other things)

    It's similar to sbp shell 3d and is free.

    I just reinstalled hide it pro and tested it against break video app and it's hidden. Question: are you trying to hide a system app?

    Edit: Also i froze messaging with TB and it appears hidden also.. interesting.

    if have tb freezeing makes it invisible. so you can freeze any app and just defrost when want to use. you don't need another app to hide stuff. and takes just as many steps to unfreeze, use, and refreeze. most people have tb anyways, it saves the app and data. pretty easy.

    Good call, Cwhatever. Titanium would work just fine as long as the other person doesn't know to look in Titanium. As a matter of fact, if they know how to use Titanium is won't matter what kind of app hider is used because Titanium will show it whether it's hid or not.
     
  17. Use CTMod, run Data Mode on your SD card, keep a second sd card with the stuff you want hidden on it. Only boot the phone with the hidden card when you need it. Stash the extra card under the battery cover
