    Create a folder that has a period as it's first character and put whatever you want hidden there.

    Is there any way to view it after you do that other than hooking it to the computer?

    I swear I just saw an app to do exactly what you want to do but can't remember what the name of it is. Search around...it's out there.

    If you go the ".private" route, you can look at the contents of the folder with a program like Astro (file manager).

    Just download launcher pro from the market and hit the menu button/preferences/general settings then hide apps. Go to gallery and hide.
