    Not sure if any of you have heard of this glitch in the IOS5 but I ran across a article talking about how to put it into a folder and thought I would share.

    October 14, 2011, 4:08 PM — Newsstand is Apple's new spot for all your digital newspapers and magazines. However, not everybody wants to use it. Here's how to hide it away in a folder.

    There are a couple of things to bear in mind about this. Newsstand is not deletable, so you can't simply delete it to get rid of it. It's also a folder in its own right so if you are going to hide it in another folder you have to be quick to make it work.

    Here's how to do it:

    1. Create a new folder by dropping one app onto the other.

    2. While the new folder is being created you must quickly grab Newsstand and drop it into the new folder.

    3. If you're fast enough Newsstand will go into the folder and you'll be all set. If not you'll have to try again until you are fast enough.

    4. Note that Newsstand will not work while it's inside of another folder (your iPhone will probably restart if you try to open it while in a folder) so you'll have to move it out of the folder to use it if you change your mind later on.
