This is best way to hide your folders in android and you don't require a software for it.
You just have to rename the folder starting with dot (.)
For eg. to hide
My folder
just rename it as
.myfolder
isn't that easy.

I use an app called Hide It Pro (shown as Audio Manager in app drawer). Works like a charm. Even the fake Audio Manager can be used to adjust ringer/notification volume etc. Give it a try....

No real folder hide application on android ??
Hi !
I searched applications which could hide folder on my andorid phone incrementally. By saying this i mean that suppose i hide a folder and that folder is used by camera app. If i hide the folder then it shouldnot show on gallery but when camera is used, it can access the folder and save images in it but again if we go to gallery then it should not be shown. Eg: A camera app uses camera folder to put all the images taken. So if i hide camera folder then the camera can use it to save the folder yet not showing in the gallery. So i dont have to hide the pictures again when new are taken. Is there any app which can do this??

Use QuickPic to hide folders, but camera folder can't be hidden.
