In this website you can find some hobbyist software I developed during these years.

14 Febbraio - IconHider is a little utility to hide icons from the menù of your Symbian smartphone. Nothing more, nothing less. :)
It is also possible to hide IconHider's icon itself.
In that case, in order to access again to IconHider you'll need to dial a personal code and IconHider will immediately appear on the screen.
The TRIAL version is free of charge, but it can hide only 1 icon and you'll not be able to change the default personal code *0000*
The FULL version can hide up to 20 icons and you'll be able to set you own personal code as you wish.
Take a look at the IconHider page to download immediately the TRIAL version for your Smartphone!
All the 3rd FP1, 3rd FP2, 5th, S^1, S^3, Anna, Belle devices are supported.
For any doubt, information, or anything else about IconHider, do not hesitate to write to the technical support: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you own one of these devices, then visit the new website www.Guardian-Mobile.com/
