    Hello, I can find no app which conceals icons. There are any number which will conceal files, (audio, visual, text files), within themselves. But if you have say, a favourite video app, it is un-concealable. You can put it into a folder amongst lots of other apps, and hope that no-one notices it. I would like to see an app which conceals other top-level apps inside itself.

    An app within an app. Somehow, I don't think that is within the model of how iOS works.

    I don't recommend it, since it involves a bug in iOS 6, and you don't know what an update will do to hidden apps later, but here it is. You should still be able to use the app via Siri or the Search page, and delete it through the Usage settings.

    In case it was not clear, I've not done this myself, so it's at your own risk.

    I think that, since this type of tutorial was created to hide apps, readers should be made aware of the last line in the linked tutorial:

    So, all anyone has to do is to reboot the phone and all apps are made visible again.
