1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Is there anyway of hiding app icons you don't use or want?

    If you mean from your home screen tap and hold then drag to the bottom. It will turn red and you can let go. It will be removed from your home screen. If you mean from the app drawer the only option is to remove the app through the market. Going into downloads and uninstalling. Or you can go into settings, application, manage applications and find it there and uninstall that way. Other than that I am not sure.

    You can't add apps in the drawer as that is where they all are.
    You can create a folder on your desktop and put apps in there you do use regularly. I started with a games, tools, gps, etc folders. That helped to keep them organized. I now use Ultimatefave on the original droid. There are other app organizers in the market too.

    or if they are stock apps you can use Launcher Pro (a home replacement) and theres an option to hide certain apps in the app drawer

    bc these apps cant be uninstalled (unless you root and uninstall them)

    If there are uninstall options within the "settings/apps/manage apps" then you can say goodbye to them, as mentioned above.
