Android :: Is It Possible To Hide Installed Apps Icon?

Jun 7, 2010

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!

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini/pro :: Apps Installed But No Icon On Home Screen

Nov 13, 2010

Checking out media players, I downloaded Zimly and Mixzing (thanks suze!) to compare. Both installed instantly but only Zimly appeared as an icon on the home screen. When I go to Settings>Applications>Manage applications they are both listed as installed, however I need to have Mixzing drop its icon for me to be able to use it from reviews etc I actually think that's the one I'll be keeping anyway, a clear case of sod's Law that of the two that one would be the one with a problem! I have uninstalled and reinstalled twice, same result.

Android :: How To Hide Application Icon From Desktop?

Jul 6, 2010

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:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" package="xyz.games.pacman.controller" android:versionCode="1" android:versionName="1.0">
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.BLUETOOTH"/>
<application android:icon="@drawable/icon" android:label="@string/app_name">
<activity android:name=".PacmanGame" android:label="@string/app_name" android:screenOrientation="portrait"> <intent-filter>
<action android:name="pacman.intent.action.Launch" />
<category android:name="android.intent.category.DEFAULT" />
</intent-filter> </activity>
<receiver android:name="xyz.games.pacman.network.MessageListener">
<intent-filter> <action android:name="xyz.games.pacman.controller.BROADCAST" />
</intent-filter> </receiver> </application> <uses-sdk android:minSdkVersion="7" /> </manifest>

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.

HTC Desire : Carrier-Installed Apps - Find The System/apps Folder

Sep 23, 2010

I have recently purchased an unlocked HTC Desire. As you may or may not know, here in Australia the only carrier of the Desire is Telstra. However I use 3 mobile so that's the reason I purchased an unlocked device.

My problem is that my phone has about a dozen or more apps which are installed by Telstra and uninstallable. Most of them are 100% useless because I'm not even on their network and I'd like them out of my applications list.

I've had a read around and I saw something about being able to remove them by deleting the file and then uninstalling them using a command prompt program.

Would anyone please be able to give me detailed instructions on how to do this because I'm not sure how to find the system/apps folder and I'm also not sure on how to get the command prompt thing to work.

General :: Hide Notification Icon Without Hiding Actual Notification

Aug 16, 2013

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.

HTC EVO 4G :: Update - Factory-installed Voicemail Icon Was Showing That Couldn't Load Widget Message

Jun 29, 2010

After the update, the factory-installed Voicemail icon was showing that "Couldn't load widget" message. I removed and replace it without a problem. This morning, I got a voice message and now it doesn't show the new message count in the icon.

Not a big deal, but I guess that means they updated that app (current version is V.5.1.0.30). I was hoping they would at least improve the recording quality by providing options for raising the recording frequency so it doesn't sound so "tinny".

General :: Good App To Hide And Also Run (not Disable) Apps On ICS 4.0.4

Jun 27, 2012

I am looking at a good way to hide apps from the list. I want the apps to be able to run (like Email) and do the sync, but not to display the icons in the list. I have seen that ICS comes with a "Disable" function for system apps, but it doesn't work for me because it also prevents the app from running.

I also want a way to launch the apps myself (through a hidden menu or command) at will.

I have tried things like Application Protection, which allows you to password protect the apps you want. However, since the icons are still there, it is still tempting for my kind to click and ask for the password.

Sprint HTC Hero :: Remove - Delete / Uninstall Pre-installed Programs - Apps - Or Sprint Apps

Nov 7, 2009

Is there any way to remove pre-installed programs?

For example, the following programs were pre-installed:

Amazon MP3
Footprints
Teeter

And maybe some others.

I've just tried:

Settings | Applications | Manage Apps

And noticed there's not always an option to Uninstall on these and some others.

Is it possible to remove, delete, uninstall, or get them off the device?

Is there any way to remove the pre-installed Sprint programs?

Sprint TV
Sprint-Nextel
NFL
Nascar

Are there some "core apps" or "core programs" that can't be removed?

A brief search on this matter on related threads seems to indicate only on "rooted" phones.

HTC EVO 4G : Issues With Some Apps Saying They Are Not Installed

Jul 14, 2010

This has been happening recently with mine and my wifes EVOs. I will go to open WHERE and it says that it is not installed even though it is. When I go to the Market it shows as installed, but in order to resolve the issue I have to uninstall and reinstall the app. The same happens with Qik on my wifes phone. After the reinstall it works fine for a few days and then reverts back to the original issue.
