Due to the popularity of Facebook Icon Remover I decided to extend it's functionality into an application that would allow the user to hide icons for any application.

Want to hide the "Latitude" icon but don't want to uninstall Google Maps entirely?

Want to hide stock bloatware but don't want OTA updates to fail because you uninstalled a "system" app?

Check out CCSWE App Manager (ROOT) to hide icons for any application on a rooted device.
Check out CCSWE App Manager (SAMSUNG) to hide icons for any application on a stock Samsung device without root.

PS: The best thanks you can give me is a positive review in the Play Store. If you can't give us 5 stars or if you run into any issues don't hesitate to email me at support@ccswe.com so I can try to resolve them and improve the app.

UPDATE: [2016-04-04] Version 3.0.2 released:

- Significant re-write to improve performance and reliability
- User interface updated to follow Material design guidelines
- Services can now be disabled
- New version to support stock Samsung devices without the need for root access

Really works and it does so fast, clean and easy. I think it's the only app available on the Play Store that actually does this WITHOUT breaking the apps.
GREAT JOB!

Wish the UI was cleaner, based on ICS design elements.

Thanks!

Works great. Just one thing, when I tried to hide SIM Toolkit, it makes my phone lose the signal n when it got the signal back, SIM Toolkit appear again on my app drawer.

Thanks for all the positive feedback. Next releases will be focused on making it easier to use (filters and status indicators).

Question Guess I must be doing something wrong...?
Great idea, this app!

However, I don't get the option to "hide" a particular item...
All it offers for me - when long-pressing an app - is "Clear data", "Freeze" or "Uninstall"...

What am I doing wrong/missing?

The freeze option would allow you to hide all icons and completely disable an app but this probably isn't what you want...

Short press the app to transition into the "Details" view at which point you'll see a list of icons associated with the application. Short press the icons you want to show/hide to check them and then click the "Show/Hide Icon(s)" button to process the operation.

After hiding/showing icons some launchers will require you to reboot before they actually show/hide.

I've installed it and when I run it, It asks for root permissions, which I click allow, but then the app just sits there with the spinning circle and "Asking for root permissions" It's been like that for about 10min so I think it's stuck

On a Sony Xperia Arc, rooted gingerbread 2.3.4

Anything I can try?

You should try installing BusyBox. See if that helps.
