HiddenApps Sneaks Into the App Store – Hide Stock Apps and iAds, No Jailbreak Required!

Apple’s App Store approval process is typically quite rigorous – but every now and then, an app that normally would never get approved for the App Store sneaks by Apple’s watchful eye. Such is the case with HiddenApps – a new free app that can hide stock iOS apps and disable iAds!


9to5Mac reports:

A new free app discovered in the App Store over the weekend can be used to manipulate some of the built-in features of iOS without the need to jailbreak your device. Don’t be fooled by the App Store screenshot. The aptly-named HiddenApps allows you to hide any of the built-in iOS apps that you may not have any desire to keep around, such as Stocks, Weather, Passbook and Newsstand.

The app also allows you to do a few other things, such as access the hidden Field Test app, which can be used in conjunction with a force-quit bug to display your cellular strength numerically, rather than as a set of bars. A button to disable iAds entirely can also be found on the app’s main menu. This button does exactly what it says: all iAds in every app will be removed completely.

One caveat to this app is that the changes are only temporary – if you reboot or respiring your device, all of the changes will be reversed, including hiding iAds from apps.  Re-applying the changes using HiddenApps brings things back to the way you had them before. HiddenApps is available now for free, and requires iOS 6 – but you’d better grab it now, before Apple changes their mind!

Update: The app has now been pulled from the App Store. That was fast!

    I wonder how much work Apple could save themselves in monitoring if they would just provide a way to do this within iOS. Obviously not for iAds which I frankly don’t find obtrusive at all. But for hiding or removing crap apps like stocks, news stand, etc. I personally think removing the stock and news stand icons are at or near the top reasons people jailbreak their phones.
