Seriously, come on Apple. Give me a break.
Agreed x 1,000,000,000,000
This bothers the **** out of me.
Isn't that because News stand IS a folder? it looks a bit different, but it functions like one.
We should be able to delete it though.
Apple probably had to make several concessions to publishers to get their magazines and newspapers in to "News Stand".
I'll bet two of those were that the App must be prominent, and that you can't delete it (like some of the other - for me - rarely used Apps, like the Stock-ticker).
Welcome to 2011.
And almost 2 years later it's still not an option. Exactly his point.
Yes, he has a point. A point that has been beaten to death so badly that it is hardly worth mentioning at this point. Just move it to another page out of the way. Crisis averted.
you can if that glitch is still in iOS.
I have mine in a folder because I don't use it, if I do it crashes springboard.
I moved mine to a blank page of apps when it first came out. Forgot I even had it until I did the same thing with passbook this morning, put it right next to news stand. Two apps all by themselves on a page I will never go to.
Seems fitting to post this seeing as though iOS6 just came out today.
That glitch hasn't worked since iOS 5.0.1 or 5.1, I forget which version it was that they patched it.
Being picky the extra dot for the page would bother me.
On ios5 I did the trick of adding to a recently created folder. Will have to try once I update the iPhone 5.
well if you were able to do it before they patched it you're good to go.
I've backed-up & restored many times and it's still in the folder I put it in.
worked fine for my iOS6 restore too.
should be good to go on the i5 too, as long as you restore from back up.
I agree, Newsstand is the most useless App in iOS. Why on earth not combine it with iBooks? It's a flawed app because it behaves like a folder, but operates like an application, so it shows up in multitasking. Why? It also can't be deleted! If we can delete iBooks which is FAR more useful, we should be able to delete the awful Newsstand.
Newsstand should be a downloadable app from the App Store. I wish I could delete it.
Seriously, I'm not going to read a newspaper on my iPhone.
You should actually try newstand, and you'll see it's not just about newspapers.
There's a slew of periodicals and magazines worth reading...depending on your interests of course.
I prefer zinio.
Still not reading on my phone. iPad, sure. But not a small phone screen.
Because thats how to deal with problems... just don't?
The fact that every apple fanboy, and apple themselves, makes such a huge deal about apple paying close attention to the "little things" means that this "little thing" should actually be quite an important problem to solve.
.. that is unless "little things" are only ever noteworthy when it is something apple has improved upon and retain their assumed insignificance when they are actually an annoyance. Just trying to understand the logic here.
"Newsstand" should be an app like iBooks is. It's really the same thing except for newspapers/magazines instead of books.
Actually, they should just incorporate Newsstand into the iBooks app, and have magazines/newspapers in the iBookstore. That would make much more sense.
I agree. Reading a periodical on a phone is not fun.
On the iPad, which is what I was mainly referring to, it makes more sense.
My point was simply that people have been complaining about this for a very long time and Apple has done nothing about it. Continuing crying now probably isn't going to solve the problem.
Something is bad, hence we complain. It's pretty much the premise of tech forums. Comments which attack people voicing a valid complaint on a forum are just completely nonsensical.
