Noticed I can launch 'Voice Recorder' with gNow voice, but it's hidden from all launchers/app history (Verizon)

Anyone else find another app that works this way?

Won't know what apps to look for that might be "hidden"... Voice Recorder though, is it only hidden on Verizon versions? Because on my device(International version) Voice Recorder is kept in the "Tools" folder that is in the app drawer along with other "Tool" Like Weather, Downloads, Setup, Parent Dashboard, HTC Apps and HTC Backup.

That was how it came out of the box, I didn't move any apps around.

But...Why would Verizon hide the Voice Recorder app? Are they the only ones allowed to record conversations or what's going on here?

Either way, different strokes for different folks they say... Regardless of that, I don't get why Verizon would want to hide the voice recorder app. Is it the only app that's hidden or have you come across more?

Did you check the hide/unhide apps?

In the app drawer, at the top press the 3 dots and then go to hide/unhide apps, is it checked there? That is if you tried looking there before.

Else maybe see what the guys in Verizon forum says http://forum.xda-developers.com/verizon-htc-one-m8
