I haven't tested it, but it sounds legit.
Seems useful for hiding my friend's phone and Safari.
If this hides the dreaded Newsstand my life will be complete.
I just killed my Game Center with it. It's supposed to come back after a reboot, but I haven't rebooted yet (don't feel like doing it with my tethered jailbreak).
I probably should've waited to read about any potential dangers, but I can say Newsstand is gone on my 4S for now.
I heard this gains access to your accounts.
simple, puts the newstand folder...IN a folder
no JB required, and STAYS in its folder after rebooting. the trick mentioned in this thread is interesting, but if you do reboot, you have to hide the apps again. better to shove them in a folder (WITH newsstand!)
I'm not seeing that in the app store
that's, uh, because it's NOT in the app store. lots of great shareware (or freeware) apps are NOT in the app store.
search this forum, 'newsstand'. a number of people have run this app, and all seem happy (i am). it's running a script...you can google it, and do the work yourself...or just run this app...
What???? This gives the user WAY TO MUCH POWER!!!!! Apple should be the one to decide which Apps you want to use, not you! How did you guys even get the mental capacity to think about this yourself, when the great leader of a company Apple said we will use and like newsstand!!!!!!
Yeah, I'm glad Android at least lets you delete any app you want...[/sarcasm]
On Android 4.0 and up at least, you can go into the settings, find a preloaded app you hate, and then click on disable for it. It is then essentially hidden from the user. Is that really too hard?
what's the point if everything reverts back after a reboot?
That is an easy one!
Ooh, so I can disable it (if my phone could even run 4.0, which very few can), meaning it still takes up valuable space in memory, but is even more useless? Yay! /sarcasm
Many don't have a mac.
This "hack" isn't deleting the app either. It's not even the point of this thread hence the thread title. People just don't want to look at that crap. I know I don't, a lot of people myself included have a "junk" folder.
And this is a moot point toward Android anyway because on Android the home screen contains icons that are short cuts to the apps in the app drawer. If you don't want to see the app keep it confined to the app drawer off the home screen.
That can't be good. StifelStand places NewsStand in a folder. But if you click it, on purpose or by mistake, it crashes and reboots the iPhone.
then don't click it (on purpose OR by mistake...). i tucked my newsstand in a folder, along with other apps i don't use, so...no real reason to go in there in the first place.
still, a poor substitute for being able to DELETE apps..
Most people don't ever turn their iDevices off. I sure don't.
It feels like I need to reset my iPhone once a week or so. Actually right now my voice dictation button is grayed out, don't know what that's about but a reboot will fix it.
I'll let you know when they let me update past Android 2.2 how it goes.
Honestly, I have stuck all of my default apps that I don't use into a folder believe it or not, called "Unused apps". As for newsstand, I just learn to live with the fact I can't move it anywhere else or hide it in a folder.
Sometimes just learning to ignore something insignificant is a good thing.
Me too. I moved Newstand to my second page, instead of third, because I use it for the only magazine subscription I have: National Geographic.
