What about moving the app from /usr/palm/applications/ to a new directory like /media/internal/.unused/? Haven't tried it but it might work to "hide" them.

Better idea would be to edit the appinfo.json of the app and add "visible": false to it.

Is there an easier way to do this? No patch or anything?

Someone could make an app to do it, but it's more efficient to edit the file yourself. Gotta learn JSON a bit if you want to have things your way on webOS.
