I've got Micromax Canvas 2 and have installed one application which is having some confidential data. Now I want to hide that application from menu.

Is there any way / application for that?

Hi Flow, I'm not looking for an app to lock other apps. I want to hide selected application from menu. – Dhaval Feb 5 '13 at 11:23
I know, that's why the question did get closed as duplicate. :) I wonder how you would then start your app if it's now shown in the app drawer (and anywhere else). – Flow Feb 5 '13 at 11:26
Obviously, from an app we've listed out as hidden. It should be work as simple as image / video locker. – Dhaval Feb 5 '13 at 11:29
it would be more logical, if the application itself would require a password.. – csomakk Feb 5 '13 at 12:11

You can use a different launcher, like ADW launcher. Free, and has that function. On the downside, it consumes a bit more of RAM.
