possible? i've got a folder full of apps i NEVER need to access (ie stocks, etc).
...of course, i MIGHT want to at some point, so...

is there a way, or an app, that will hide a folder?

Looks like SBSettings doesnt do it. Hopefully someone can answer this, cause I would like to know too.

I'm not trying to be rude as I am genuinely curious. Why would you want to do this? It seems like it would be better to just hide all the apps you don't want to use (yes takes longer at first) but then only un-hide the app you need to use right then. Why un-hide an entire folder to only use one app?

Install SBSettings. Swipe left-to-right on the status bar, by the clock. Tap More > Hide Icons. Turn off the toggles for those apps you wish to hide. Use the home button to close SBSettings. Your apps are now hidden.

Edit: The poster above beat me to it. What I will add is: all applications are still searchable via the spotlight search whether they are visible on the springboard or not, in case you do need to use them.

I have never once used spotlight search. Knowing this I may actually use it now :D
