Remove Annoying Facebook Messenger and Facebook Camera from App Drawer

With the newer iterations of the official Facebook app, many users have been outraged to find that Facebook has taken some liberties and have installed new software on their phones. Along with the official Facebook app, users also get the Facebook Messenger app and the Facebook Camera app.

While the Messenger app may be a tad useful for those who frequently use Facebook’s chat feature, the Facebook Camera app has been deemed utterly useless by most, as all Android phones have their own camera app, and for some with heavily modified ROMs, maybe even a second one if they have the ICS camera app on a Gingerbread ROM.

Something had to be done, and now something has been done. XDA Senior Member machx0r has released a small application that removes the FB Camera and Messenger icons from your app drawer. While the apps remain on the device, they are not visible to the user after running the app. It takes only a couple of minutes.

To learn more, head over to the application thread.
