- remove/hide the application from the installed applications list

FYI aja kemarin iseng cek aplikasi untuk setting APN  di Market dan
ketemu yang namanya Asisten APN hasil karya anak negeri.
Aplikasi ini akan cek simcard yang dipake lalu akan muncul pilihan

Sangat berguna untuk yang baru update ke JCE/JCF karena nggak ada
pilihan APN untuk operator Indonesia.
