Hello, I just wrote a small script which let you toggle the visibility of installed applications (yes, also the Tutorial app) on your Sailfish OS device.

At first I thought I could write an application for that but then you would have one more icon to hide ;)

Here you will find the script. It's not nearly perfect but does it's job. Con: You need to be devel-su, because it will modify .desktop files in /usr/share/applications/

EDIT: Moved script from github to gitlab.

I'm curious @ploth, how many apps do you personally hide?, I certainly like to hide the tutorial app so I made a patch to do that.
