    Is there anyway to make certain apps private, hidden or locked on the menu screen. I have lil brothers and nephews who I don't mind playing games or watching movies on my phone; but I don't want them getting into certain "adult" apps or my fake call and sms apps.

    I believe it's possible to do b/c there's an app called Call Log (Secret Monitor) that has in its description "No icon in the list of applications. Completely hidden at you eyes". I downloaded it just to check and it really doesn't appear in the menu. So does anyone know how to do it for any app that we choose?

    You may wanna look into this: App Protector

    It may satisfy your needs.

    If you are using Launcher Pro it is also available there to.
    Just go Menu>Prefferences>General settings> hidden apps and then pick the ones you want to hide.
