How to hide apps from the app drawer

install xposed framework 1

Quite often we manage to download apps that we don’t really plan on using all that much. These apps while only used once in a blue moon usually just clog up space in the app drawer but can’t really be deleted as there are times when we do need them. It is time like these that I personally wish that I was able to hide some apps from the app drawer just to make it easier for me to find the ones I want. Of course, I can organize them in folders and everything but there is another way. That other way comes in the form of an Xposed Framework module which allows users to hide apps from the app drawer.

The MOD in question just hides the apps you don’t like from the app drawer and works with the Google Experience Launcher (which is the default app launcher in most KitKat ROMs). So to hide apps from your app drawer, simply follow the easy guide given below.

Disclaimer: We take no responsibility for any damages done to your device either during or after the process so proceed at your own risk.

Prerequisites: You will require a rooted device that has the Xposed Framework installed (you can follow our guide for that by clicking here) on it as well.


  • Download the ad remover module from here
  • Install the module like any other apk you may download from the internet after copying it into your phone.
  • Launch the Xposed Installer and go to the “Modules” section to enable the installed module by checking the checkbox.
  • Reboot your phone for the desired Mod to be activated.

That’s it, now simply go to the properties of the module and add the names of the applications you wish to hide from the app drawer and that’s it, you have successfully managed to hide apps from the app drawer.
