How do I make my app not appear in the App Drawer

Postby gqgk » Fri Mar 25, 2011 7:02 am

Just wondering how to make my app not appear in the app drawer as it doesn't need a user interface and simply responds based on other input... Any help or guidance would be appreciated. Thank you!

Hey Welcome to the Android Forums... :)

Well, In your "AndroidManifest.xml" file you probably have a line that says

<category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
This line tells ANdroid that it "Should be displayed in the top-level launcher." Remove that line and you should be set.
Just test the same and let us know if this helps you.
Thanks with Regards,
