Apparently the "swipe to hide" feature in the app store was removed in some earlier version of iOS. As I manage my grandson's iPad along with my own, there are apps I don't want him to download. (He is some distance away and I can't always be on hand to insure that "restrictions" is turned on, so would simply like to remove the offending items from view.) After a search, I got the impression that it can be done on a computer via iTunes, but haven't been able to figure out how by experimentation. Can someone tell me how? Thanks. P.S. I am running iOS 7.1.2.
