HiddenApps Allows iAds Opt-Out Without Jailbreak
Created by on Monday, March 11th, 2013 in Apple, iOS & Mac OSX.
HiddenApps, a App that allows you to block iAds, hide stock Apps and access hidden diagnostic information has sneaked its way into the iOS App Store. Don’t be fooled by the App Store screenshot, it has a lot more content.
The aptly-named HiddenApps allows you to hide any of the built-in iOS apps that you may not have any desire to keep around, such as Stocks, Weather, Passbook and Newsstand.
Update: This App has now been removed from the AppStore for violation of Apple’s Developer Agreement.
Unfortunately the changes to your device aren’t permanent, if you re-spring or reboot your device it will be restored to its original configuration. So iAds and hidden Apps will once again be displayed. If you are looking for a permanent solution then currently you must opt for Evasi0n to Jailbreak your device and download one of several packages available in Cydia.
If you want this be quick, without a doubt Apple will remove it from the App Store within 24 hours.
