    Smile Hide an Apps Widget From Screen But Still Be Able to Use App?

    OK I have an app that I loveon my Droid 2, it's a fake call app that gets me out of situations/meetings I don't want to be in any longer.

    Works great for that but I hate having the apps widget on the main screen with all the apps on my phone. I know you can take it off your custom home screen but I'm talking about the screen that automatically shows all the apps on your phone.

    I have deleted widgets but that meant deleted the whole app. Is there a way to just hide the widget?

    Thanks all.

    If you're talking about the app drawer you can DL a home launcher from the market like launcherpro or ADW to hide it there.

    Sorry I don't have the technical/proper name of that screen. It's the one that appears when you press the white circle with a down arrow head inside.

    So what does the app you mention actually do? Does it slow down the phone at all?
    Thanks.

    Yep that's the app drawer. You'll need a non-stock home/launcher replacement to hide it there.
    All it does is act as an alternative homescreen. There's a bunch of different ones out there but adw & launcherpro are just my 2 favorites. They will run smoother than your stock one typically so it's a win/win.

    LauncherPro has the ability of hiding apps in the apps drawer, not sure if it can be used unless you get the "Plus" version (paid app, unlocks many features).

    ^ yep that's free. LP Widgets & widget resizing are the paid features.
