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.

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".

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.

Surprise surprise, it doesn't appear that I have this option on ANY of the 15 or so apps I've downloaded.I've read that developers need to unlock this option when they create their app - I guess most of the apps available today just don't support it? Can anyone confirm this? Am I just doing something wrong?

As an initial thought I think I could pop up a message letting the user know there is a new version ready, but if I could avoid unnecessary request to the server it would be better. If a google engineer comes across this please give me a hint as you do this for Google Maps.
