There are more idiots in this planet, than you can imagine. Some are just idiots, and some are imbeciles. They take your phone, start playing Angry Birds or Subway Surfer. And drown your battery level to death. Sometimes it seems like their primary aim in life is to grab your mobile and eat your phone's charge. Since that you can do nothing about their stupidity, a better solution will be to hide some specific games or apps.
But unfortunately not all android phones allow hiding apps by default. So we’re gonna need third party apps for that. One such app is Nova Launcher. It’s an awesome launcher with amazing customization and flexibility. And you can also use it to hide apps and games from the app drawer without root.
So let’s have a look at how we can hide apps and games in an android phone.
At first head over to this link and install Nova Launcher. It’s completely free in PlayStore. However, you've gotta pay $4.99 to buy the prime version. After installation, check step 2.
Open Nova Launcher. Customize it any way you want. Make it your default launcher. To do that press the home key, select Nova Launcher and hit Always.
Now go to Nova Settings. For that, in the home screen, press the option button and from the list select Nova Settings. Then go to the Drawer option. Now scroll down until you find an option named Hide Apps. And proceed to step 4.
Press on Hide Apps. And a bunch of apps will appear. Amongst them select the apps you want to hide. Press home or back button, when you’re done. That's it.
To Unhide the Apps and Games.
If you wish to unhide the apps or games, follow the same path you used to hide, i.e. Nova Settings > Drawer > Hide Apps. And then untick the selected apps. You're done.
Most of the third party launchers come with this app-hiding option. So if you don't wanna use Nova, you can search for something else in the Play Store. The procedure is pretty much same for all other launchers. Yet, if you face any trouble hiding apps, comment below, we'll get back to you soon.
