I have an application which launch automatically after the booting finished,but the application icon is displayed in the android emulator.Now i want to hide that icon from the user.So that the user cannot know from the application is lanuch and they cannot launch that application manually.
I forgot to unroot before hitting the OTA. Although I lost root in the process, I still have the SuperUser Permissions icon in my app tray. Is there a way to hide the icon without having to root and remove it manually?
I have a situation like this. I have a "A" app which shows on home screen. When I click this "A" app, It will show many other apps which installed or will be installed on the device. ut the problem is I only want to show these apps through the "A" app only.Is it possible?? If installing and hiding icons not possible, I can dynamically download these apps from my own cloud and load them at the request. Can anyone please guide me some ideas or something?'m so lost here and just no clue at all how to start!
I defined an application which is only used from my other application. So I would like to hide the icon of this application, so that the user can't see it on the desktop of his phone (or how do you call the thing where all apps are listed?). My manifest file looks the following way:
I already read this question: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1063604/how-to-hide-an-application-icon-in-android-emulator But if I just remove the line <category android:name="android.intent.category.DEFAULT" /> in my manifest, the activity isn't working at all (ActivityNotFoundException in the calling activity). I already tried android.intent.category.EMBEDDED but this doesn't work too. In the Internet I found CommonsWare answer http://osdir.com/ml/Android-Developers/2010-06/msg03617.html that it can be done using PackageManager. Unfortunately, it isn't explained how exactly and I couldn't find a solution by browsing the PackageManager API.
Is there any way to hide an application icon from Android applications list ? The application should be downloaded from Market and opened some GUI for configuring my application. I don't want to see any icon of my application in applications list. User should not be able to run it.
By the way I know some way:remove this line from manifest <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" /> But it is not worked for me, because the GUI is not shown.
I want to hide my application icon from main menu at the run time. I believe that a filter with category Launcher in the application's manifest file is responsible for the application's presence in the main menu. Is there any way to change the category at run time? or any other way to hide the icon from main menu?
Is it possible to hide the icon (on every launcher, not a particular one) of the gallery on JB, which is the same application as the camera? i want to keep the camera icon only. I readed, but i dont remember where, that you can do something like that with some .xml editing...
I'm using the android SDK in Eclipse on Linux. I've used the code at itp.nyu.edu/~sve204/mobilemedia_spring10/androidCamera101.pdf to write an app to store an image captured through the camera onto SD card (there are various examples of this around). It works ok except that the image returned by the camera is not what's on the preview surface. Instead of getting the checkerboard image I expect, I get different versions of the android icon depending on which version of target I choose. If I render the image to an ImageView this is confirmed as it's the same as on the SD card.
Is it possible to hide just the notification icon without hiding the notification itself from pulldown?
Use case: Yahoo Weather app, the persistent notification in the pulldown is beautiful. I want it to always be there. However, the little temperature notification icon is pretty ugly, and I want to hide/disable it.
Using JB's "disable notifications" won't work since it will disable the entire notification, not just the icon.
I finally uninstalled Home ++, as bad as it killed me to do it, I couldn't tolerate the force closes and bog down any longer. My Droid is screaming fast now, but I plan on reinstalling Home++ when the issues get worked out. One of the things I liked was the way it hid the status bar. Is there any other app or option out there to hide the status on the stock home?
With my G1 it was possible to hide apps from the drawer, but I can't remember if that was something somone enable via a ROM or a separate app. Anyone with a Droid able to leave an app installed and fully functional, but hide it so it doesn't show up in the app drawer?
Is there a way I can hide pictures or create new folders to put personal pictures in and hide that? You know when you let someone look at your phone to see pictures is there a way I can have a spot to have my personal pictures I do not want people to see or hide them? I tried creating a new folder cant figure it out.
I have purchased the apps "Open Home" and "Better Keyboard" for my Droid and love them both. The only thing that i cant figure out is how to hide all the icons in my pull up menu. I have downloaded multiple skins and the icons are all over my pull up menu and i dont need to see them. is there any way to hide them. If not i can get over it but it would be nice not to have to look at them all the time. any help would be much appreciated. jz15t
