Recents Privacy

This module will allow you to hide selected app thumbnails
from the recents task stack.

Hidden apps will appear as a blank card in the recents stack.
All that will be shown is the app title and icon.

Compatible with 4.4.x, 5.x, 6.x (KitKat, Lollipop, Marshmallow).

This is useful for hiding apps that contain sensitive information
such as banking apps or even the camera preview.

FEATURES:
✓Hide thumbnails from the recent tasks stack
✓Ability to set the maximum number of recent task cards (5.x & 6.x only)
✓Replace blank card with custom color, including transparency!
✓Hide this module's icon from the launcher
✓Optional clear all recents button for the stack (5.x & 6.x only)

More features are planned for future releases, including the
ability to limit the number of recents cards in the stack as
well as support for earlier versions of Android.

This module does *not* require any special permissions.

Thumbnail images are cached regardless, so you can hide/unhide
them at will.

This is based off of a feature I designed for my custom ROM for
the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and utilizes some code from
CyanogenMOD's Privacy Guard utility.

NOTE: The apps list is cached, so it only has to update when
an app is either installed or removed. To force refresh the list of apps,
select "Reload" from the menu.

Changes: 

✓Ability to set the maximum number of recent task cards
that will be kept in the stack (Lollipop and Marshmallow ONLY!!)

NOTE: The maximum (default) number is determined by
your device's configuration. Low RAM devices keep 50 cards in the
stack by default, whereas normal RAM devices keep 100. This
setting does not allow you to keep more cards than is allowed by
your device's RAM configuration.

You may also opt to disable recents entirely. This will block
the stack from loading altogether, and no cards will be kept
in memory.
