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?
I'm rooted, so I was wondering if anyone had a way to use the 2.1 app drawer on the droid? I've seen home replacement apps that will do this, but I'd REALLY prefer if there was a workaround to that, since everytime I've used one of those it's slowed down the phone considerably.
How can i hide an app from the app drawer?In the threads i read and searched for they all said it can be done with root access, but no one ever says how it can be done.As a side note, I still want to have access to the app using keyboard shortcuts.I have tried home replacement apps, but they are so unstable. I also tried "App Vault", but this doesn't let you access the app while it is hidden.Can anyone help me please?
I'm having a small problem which is sort of annoying. No it's really annoying.Every once in a while I'll click on my app drawer and it's completely blank.Closing it and reopening it doesn't seem to work. I have to wait about ~1 minute for it to start working again.Also, when I wake my phone up and unlock it, I can't swipe to a different screen for about 10 seconds after I unlock the phone.It's also rather annoying.Has anyone ran into these problems and have a solution?I did some searching on here and the only thing I could find was this issue with people who are running different ROM's.I am running stock.
I searched for this on the Droid X forum and didn't quickly find an answer. I also googled to see if there was any widget that you could place on a home screen to display apps (not hidden by LP Plus), but didn't really find anything I really was looking for with that either.
Moderators please move this if this has been discussed many times and my search criteria was just bad.
I'm looking for a widget for my last home page I need to finish customizing that will give me the ability to look at my App Drawer (the Apps I use frequently and want to display with LP Plus - while hiding ones I don't want to show up).
I have this icon in my app drawer and have no idea where it came from or what it belongs to. It looks like a figure wearing a ninja suit holding a rifle and it says superuser permissions under it. When I click on it all that shows up is a black screen and brings up nothing when I press the menu key. Any ideas on what it's from and how to remove it.
i've searched around here trying a find an answer and I can't seem to find anything. I was wondering if there was a way to take the applications that are in the drawer and move them to a folder. I don't like that fact that I have all these applications in the drawer, it gets too congested. I would just like to put them in a folder on on of my home screens so its a little bit more cleaned up...
I was using the facebook app and clicked a youtube video link and decided to make youtube the default app to launch for this specific action. However, I later decided that I want it to launch the link in a browser (so I can read comments) instead of playing instantly after clicking the link.
I tried "Clear defaults" under settings>applications>manage applications but there is no settings for youtube. I tried to clear defaults for facebook and my browser, and tried reinstalling the facebook app but no luck.
I downloaded universal androot and rooted my phone. I then immediately un-rooted my phone and rebooted.Now I can't delete the superuser permissions app from my app drawer?? Plus I cant delete universal androot?Plus since I un-rooted will I receive the OTA update to 2.2?
I have a 2.2 Froyo Droid X not-rooted and I really don't want to root it. I've pretty much figured how to create shortcuts with custom icons, and I'm using Launcher Pro and Desktop Visualizer for the shortcuts that are not on my dock... what I want to know is, can I customize without rooting the icons of the applications themselves or no?
I noticed after doing a restore to Rubix 1.6 when I tried to access Settings they would not show nor was the Setting icon in my app drawer. Is this just a bad restore or is the Nandroid corrupted? I'm running DarkSlide v3 just fine right now just trying to figure out if my RubiX 1.6 nandroid is crap or not.
I was wondering, is there a leaked 2.1 app drawer file that i can download ? I already have the the new 2.1 gallery and I love it!! I really don't want to root my phone, I just want a few 2.1 goodies before the official release.
The problem is that some apps are not showing in the app drawer, like for example contacts, os google talk. They are installed, becaused they show in the list from Settings->apps. I can't access those apps and other by any way!! I tried different launchers, but it's the same.
When I install an app (which is typically via the Play Store) the app icon does not end up on my home screen. Or what I think Apex calls a drawer. Occasionally an app does appear there automatically, but perhaps a couple out of the 50 or so apps I've installed.
The only way I have found to get them onto my drawer (or home screen) is I have to hold my finder on the screen and the "Add to Home screen" menu pops up. From there I can select "Shortcuts" and from the top of that menu I can select "Apps". I can then select just ONE app to appear on my home screen. But the thought of doing this for every app doesn't make sense to me. Is there a way to get them there automatically?
Perhaps I am completely misunderstanding the concept of the home screens. I am switching over from iOS, and there one organises all apps on home screens. Perhaps on Android the home screen is not meant for storing and accessing all the app icons??
