Hide Apps from the Google Experience Launcher with Xposed

If you like to keep things minimal, you’ve obviously already tried hiding unnecessary applications. It’s easy to hide a big list of files, but sometimes one would like to hide an icon from the app drawer without actually disabling it. This can be tricky without the proper tools or an advanced launcher. Not too long ago, we presented Smart Hide Calculator, an app to hide files hidden behind a calculator UI. Now, thanks to an Xposed Module, we can hide apps as well.

XDA Forum Member depressiveRobot released an Xposed Framework module that hides applications from the app drawer. Currently, it works with Google Experience Launcher, which is the default launcher in most KitKat ROMs. This module is extremely easy to use. All you need to do is select a list of apps to hide or show, and reboot your device. Of course, you can easily revert your changes by doing pretty much the same thing in reverse. As it’s a Xposed module, your device must be rooted and have Xposed Framework installed.

If you have something to hide, and I know that you do, you should visit the module thread and give it a shot. You can also download it from the Xposed Frameworks module database.
