    Newsstand -- currently in iOS 6, it works exactly as expected. All your newspapers and magazines are arranged on a newspaper stand 'News' 'Stand'. It is great. Even the icon resembles a Newspaper Stand. Same with iBooks. The books are arragned on a bookshelf. The bookshelf turns over to reveal a nice bookstore. Works exactly as expected.

    The problem with the latest design in iOS 7 is, the Newstand icon get lost along with a dozen other folder icons. It does not stand out.
    If the latest design stays for public release.. I'm sure the publishers will pull their apps out of Newsstand and go back to being a regular app.

    I'm not really a big fan of the current truly authentic digital 'floating in the air' design. Are you? Do you prefer current iOS 6 design or the latest iOS 7 design for Newsstand?

    The old design looks terrible.

    Wood and shelves don't belong on a phone. Not to mention you couldn't hide the damn thing, or even put it in a folder.

    I am just happy it can be tucked away in a folder now.

    I am even happier that I no longer have to read, when someone complains about not being able to place Newsstand in a folder, the snarky "That is because it IS a folder!!!!!" Thank gawd for small favors.

    They should just do away with Newsstand now. It's just a folder with an ugly icon in iOS 7. Why make it a separate app without the shelves?

    You open newsstand, open what you want to read and that's it. You'll be in the app for a whole of 2 seconds. I fail to see how publishers will pull their content from newsstand for this. It would be a very stupid decision and result in lost revenue.

    lol, how many threads are you going to start about how much you despise ios7?

    seriously though, you've made your point, and there are 100s of threads where people are complaining like you. we don't need a new thread for every single complaint under the sun.
