  2. Hide apps

    Could find the option to hide apps from the drawer on this Preview. It would be really nice to have this feature (specially to hide the Launcher's own icon).

  4. hidden apps at the touch of the fingerprint

    The hidden apps would be made visible the screen or in the dock upon the activation of the finger print.

  5. hidden apps

    I frequently use apps that access sensitive information, such as banking and financial data, that I don't wish casual users of my device to readily be enticed to explore. By making it simple to hide these apps with passcode protection to open them, my problem would be solved!

  7. Hiding an app from the drawer should not hide it from home screens

    Coming from Nova Launcher I just spent some time on customizing the Launcher experience. Went into settings to hide several apps from the drawer just to discover that they also get removed from the home screens. I expected it to only hide on the drawer.

  8. Hidden

    Hidden apps option is visible on the 3 dot list menu in the home screen which is undesirable and swipe up on dock to access hidden apps is missing. Hidden apps looked better when they are closely placed rather far apart.

  10. When we exit any hidden app by pressing back key or home screen key,it still remains in recent apps,it should permanently close.


    1. When we exit any hidden app by pressing back key or home screen key,it still remans in recent apps,it should permanently close,because we don't want others to see that there are any hidden apps in the phone.

    2. There can be an option of "Time of Disappearance" in Hidden apps setting,so that we can choose when our hidden app close when it run in background.

    3. There should not be the option of "View Hidden apps" in app drawer menu,by this option other person can see that we are hiding something in the phone,then what will be the meaning of our hiding…

  11. Hidden apps must close when we return to home screen,those should not be seen in recent apps

    When we close any hidden app,it still remains in recent app,so it must not be in recent app.We hide something because we don't want others to see that,so after closing hidden app,it should permanently close and we have to open that again if we want to open that again.
    Or there can be an option of time of disappearance of hidden app.
    One last thing,there must not be the option of "View Hidden apps" in app drawer section,by this option anyone can see that we are hiding something,then what will be the meaning of hiding something if other person know…

  13. No debe estar visible los 3 puntos de acceso a aplicaciones ocultas, se debe accesar desde algún gesto o desde una clave con el dialer

    crear acceso a aplicaciones ocultas con un gesto o desde el dialer de marcado de llamadas como lo hace gallery vault, y sin poner visible nada que indique que hay aplicaciones escondidas

  15. hide apps update

    Hello I would like to suggest an idea, because the option to hide apps does not make total sense.
    The option to hide apps appears in the app drawer and in the launcher settings, this makes the function totally useless.
    I would like to ask that the option to add / delete / show hidden apps, could be opened only through gestures.
    And also added privacy functions, on the home screen you cannot open the launcher settings using gestures and also options to hide the launcher and allow opening only through the dialer.

  16. Don't remove hidden apps from home screen.

    I have some apps which I always open from my home screen. As such, is like to hide them from the app draw to help keep it clean.
    As soon as I hide the app, it currently gets removed from my home screen.
    If I've gone to the trouble of putting an app there, I want it there.

  17. FINGERPRINT support for unlocking device and hidden apps

    Ideas -
    At times the environment might be crowded that you can't hide your pin easily from the sight of others. Therefore, let the launcher implement support for fingerprint unlocking of the device and also hidden apps.
