Protect your apps with App Hider for Android.
App Hider allows you to hide any application you want in a safe password protected hiding place. This includes any default applications eg. Gallery, Messages*, GMail*, etc. Hide your photos, hide your sms text messages, hide your finance apps, hide your sensitive documents, hide your confidential mails, hide anything!
App Hider is a replacement Home Launcher app and protects your apps by only allowing access via a secure app portal that appears as a Stocks application.
Once inside the password protected area you can launch any apps, add more hidden apps, or remove apps you've chosen to hide.
Check out the YouTube demo for more details on how App Hider can help you to protect your apps.
You can change the name of the 'fake' portal app to anything you want and can even choose different icons from a set of 10 provided icons.
* NB - AppHider will stop these apps being visible from your app menu, however you will still receive notifications which can allow access to the app directly. We recommend turning off notifications.
If you have any questions or concerns, please don't rate the app poorly. Instead email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will respond quickly and provide friendly support.
With the Theme Manager you can customize your statusbar by selecting from hundreds of different icons and themes. You can also easily create your own theme. Some default themes are only available after a small in-app purchase.
Theme Manager also supports any MetaMorph theme! Just download the MetaMorph theme and click "PICK THEME" from the Theme Manager.
With Theme Manager you can select exactly what icons will be replaced in your system. You can also create backups of your current theme for easy sharing and restoring.

- App with uninstall feature
If you don't know what "root" means, don't install this app!
This app moves apps from and to the /system/app folder, making them a system app or a user app. System apps can get more priviledges, so some apps get more functionality when installed as a system app.
On the other hand, system apps can not be uninstalled. So this app can also be used to convert system apps to normal user apps by moving them from the /system/app directory to /data/app directory.
WARNING: Uninstalling important system apps might result in a unusable device! Use this function at your own risk and only if you know what you're doing! Make a NANDroid backup first! I won't give any kind of support if something goes wrong - don't install this app if you're not okay with that.
Paid apps can not be moved! Since Android JellyBean, paid apps are encrypted and therefore can not be moved!
Apps which are moved to SD card need to be moved back to internal memory before being able to move them to /system/app!
The app might not work on custom ROMs! On Android 5.0 Lollipop, system apps can not be converted back to normal apps with this app! Feel free to contribute to the GitHub project if you know a fix for this
This app requires a rooted device with BusyBox installed. Don't install this app if you don't know what that means!
Make a backup before moving files! Not every app will work when moved to a different location!
This app uses the RootTools Project (http://code.google.com/p/roottools) library.
The app is open source: https://github.com/j4velin/SystemAppMover

--- What do this app do? ---
► Toggle between 3G and 4G with a few clicks for nearly any device regardless of manufacturer.
► View all statistics your carrier uses to determine signal quality and 3G to 4G hand offs for CDMA, LTE and HSPA/HSPA+ in real time.
► Easy to read 3G and 4G statistics in percentages based on the max/min values instead of just decibels.
► Quick access to info you can reference when you need to complain to your carrier about poor reception in your area.
► Find dead spots around your home/office that affect phone calls, but not data (or data, but not phone calls).
► Reception quality can be misleading with bars only. See all the data Android and your carrier hides from you to determine signal quality and how it varies.
► Access to low level information about your previous and current wifi connections, including the current signal in decibels.
Annoyed at the lack of network signal information for your Android phone your carrier hides from you?
Can't switch between 3G and LTE easily with your phone?
Wish you could know more about the statistics your carrier uses to determine many bars your phone has and the tower it connects to?
Want to see what your 3g and 4g signals are at the same time and also switch between them easily?
Try out this free app and see all that information you've been missing when you could only look at number of bars and one signal under status settings. Also includes hidden configuration settings (cell radio configuration, wifi config, battery info) normally invisible to users.
Compare your signal quality based on percentages instead of just decibels. Now, you can instantly see how great each signal reading is for your device based on a scale of 0% (worst) to 100% (best). Percentages are configured to give the best reading for your carrier by default.
Use the info contained in this app to monitor your current signal and find dead spots around your home and office. Also useful for complaining to tier 2 tech support with your carrier when your signal sucks. Be informed and use what they know to your advantage!
**If you want this app in another language, please contact me either on the forums or with the listed email here to help. Translating can be done by anyone via https://www.transifex.com/projects/p/advanced-signal-info **
More information about the app can be found here until it's integrated into the app itself:
App works best for phones with either a CMDA or LTE data connection, but I offer as much GSM info as I can provide. If it does not work with your device, please contact me at my email and I can work with you to find out the issue.
Note: not all information may be available depending on the OEM/OS. Info not displayed will show as "N/A".
If the advanced area button causes the app to crash, it's your device and not me, sorry (not much I can do other than remove the button for your device only). It's an activity added to the pure Android OS and can be restricted by manufacturers (such certain Samsung ones).
== PERMISSIONS ==

There are many apps that save battery or increase performance, however Root Booster uses the most proven settings to achive the best results. You can easily apply these settings with preset modes which ensure speed boost, battery boost or stability boost. These modes are achieved by applying appropriate settings to the main phone components. Here are some explanations for what particullary Root Booster does to your CPU, RAM and Android OS system.
Hibernation (Android OS optimizer)
Each Android application can have one or multiple services. They run in the background and usually perform some kind of task. Many people think that when they kill an application, it completely stops draining your battery and computing power, but that's not true. Application still have servicies that are running after killing and still drains battery and comuting power. On the other hand, if you hibernate an application it stop it\'s servicies and application does not drain battery and CPU computing power anymore. Hibernation is gently and efficient way to save your battery and increase performance.
Root Booster will find battery draining and performance demanding applications and auto hibernates them.
CPU (processor governor control)
A governor is a driver for the regulation of CPU frequency. Governor decides how fast and when will be achieved maximal or minimal CPU frequency. Setting apropriate governor makes your device more battery saving, fast or even more stable. However, deciding which governor is suitable is a little bit tricky.
Root Booster can decide which governor you should use and automatically applies the most suitable governor for the selected mode.
RAM (memory manager)
Each application uses VM heap for it 's data and work. The main reason to change the VM heap size is stability improvement. Many big applications need a big amount of memory (VM heap) for their work. If the VM heap size is smaller than the requested memory, it causes an application crash (Out of memory error). Setting heap size is hard task and there is no manual to set up for better performance. Better performance can be only achieved by testing.
Root boster will test your RAM and sets up your VM heap size for better stability and performance.
Note: Root Booster is designed to work only with rooted devices
Taskbar for Note Edge is an application that allow you to manage your current task and display it on the 2nd screen of your device.
It will make your edge screen just like taskbar in window and you can quickly switch between applications.
How to add panel:
- Install application.
- Go to Setting - Edge Screen - Manage Panel
- Check on Taskbar panel - press Back button
- Enjoy it!
***** For Lollipop OS, you need to enable usage static by enable "Setting Pemission button".
If you have any contribution, please contact us: email@example.com
Thank you very much.
For full source and readme containing full instructions on how to use this program. Go to that link and read the readme for full instructions. Or guess... either way.
The full version (not this demo) lets you automatically hide the tablet status bar when in landscape view, allowing true full screen use on your tablet! To get the bar back, just rotate the tablet to portrait mode. Use it as needed, and then rotate back to landscape and the system bar will be hidden again.
If you are interested in buying the TabletBar Hider app, try this demo first to make sure it will work for you!
THIS REQUIRES ROOT! Unfortunately there is no way to do this on non-rooted devices.
Keep in mind, THIS APP IS USELESS except for verifying the paid app will work. Just wanted to make that clear!
And unfortunately, this does not work with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
