    Seeing as NewStand is sort of a folder itself, and you've never been able to stack folders within one another. This is what I feared.

    I don't think you can. But you should be able to remove it through the settings app, by setting up a restriction on. I remember doing that with the YouTube app before. I hope that works.

    You are correct that you cannot stick newsstand into a folder.

    I just checked my restrictions settings and I don't see a way to hide it either. Sorry.

    It's been like this during all of the beta. It's my biggest complaint about iOS 5.

    I hope they eventually fix this, but I could see it taking a while and being pretty low on the priority list. Like others have said, I think it's because they set it up as just a sort of prettified 'auto-folder', so it follows the normal rules for a folder, not an app.

    Why can't anyone get it?

    Newsstand IS a folder. When have Apple ever let us create folders inside folders? Exactly, never!

    Get over it.

    Oops, didn't see this thread and created a dupe. Thanks, grapes911.

    So far this is my only complaint about iOS 5.

    Is Newsstand any more a folder than iBooks? Maybe I should ask that the other way. Is iBooks any less a folder than Newsstand? Honestly, I haven't really used Newsstand so I don't know how it works but I assume they are similar.

    Edit: After playing with it for a bit, I now see the difference. I'm curious why Apple did it this way. I like the iBooks methods better.

    yea, he is right.

    newsstand is like a main app that they will not let you put in a folder. The reason why is, when you click on it, the folder expands so you can see your mag's. if it was in a folder, you couldn't do that. So, you can't put it in a folder

    Newsstand

    Anyone find a way to remove Newsstand? I have no intentions of using it and I can't even move it into a folder! Make it like iBooks, which is removable. This worse than bloatware you get when buying PC, at least you can remove all of that stuff.

    Nope, there's nothing you can do! :(

    Edit: At first I didn't believe that it wouldn't go into a folder, but wow, you're right!

    I agree and now its annoying...

    LOVE it all but that is an eyesore on my screen.

    Im a minimalist and my home screen is my only screen and it is condensed and neat...

    but again ill live as this update is amazing..

    Why can't Newsstand be hidden in a folder?

    Hi all,

    As above really, I have no interest in using this app but I am unable to delete it or move it into a folder, any way around it?

    Cheers

    More likely because the icon is dynamic and wouldn't play nice in a folder.

    I agree. I just want to hide it. I finally moved it to a blank page. Maybe they will do something about but I doubt it.

    There were some conversations earlier in the day about this as well.

    General consensus is that "it is a folder". With that said, it is still lame and probably the most complained about part of iOS other than the download issues right now.

    Next update feature: hiding default Apple apps (including Newsstand).

    NewsStand

    Can NewsStand be put in a folder? For some reason it won't go into any folders.
