Hiding Application Icons

Is there a way to hide some applications that I never use and cannot delete without having it come back after any OS update (e.g. Slacker Radio, Kobo)?  My home screen is getting very cluttered.

 

Thanks!

Re: Hiding Application Icons

For the moment i tried and If you hold your finger on any icon you see a trash can below the ones that can be deleted. also you can move the apps icon to favorites games etc. Try to get your most used and common apps to favorites.

also, the thing you can do is to move it from the top to button, may be is not the solution you are looking for, but it could be a choice

Re: Hiding Application Icons

Did you try deleting them from the app world or directly from the application tray?

Re: Hiding Application Icons

If you want to delete an app, its better to uninstall them from the app world using the tab that says My World.

Re: Hiding Application Icons

But then the problem is, when I uninstall them, the "OS Update available" icon appears, which does nothing but reinstall the unwanted applications as "OS" update.

the core apps cant be hidden yet and at the moment are part of the Over The Air OS installer, just ignore them for the time being.
