    No app needed. From you home screen press your menu button and choose settings.

    Go to "Wireless & networks"

    Then "Wi-Fi settings"

    Then (assuming Wi-Fi is on) go to the bottom of all the networks listed and choose "Add Wi-Fi- network"

    Manually type in the hidden SSID and key and you should be good to go.

    Just an FYI, A hidden SSID does little to slow anyone looking for a connection down. This is from personal experience.
