    I prefer real magazines and newspapers, so no

    No, and don't laugh at me, but I like the icon and how it opens up as a newsstand so it's presence is cool with me. :)

    A bit of an odd way to ask it. If you buy a magazine, it automatically goes in there. You don't really decide to "use the newsstand or not."

    I get your meaning, but a more straightforward question would be "do intend to read magazines on your iPhone?"


    EDIT: And I voted 'no' anyway, so I don't know why I really care enough to mention this.

    They didn't open / release the magazine / newspaper part of the App Store yet so it's not possible to get anything into it yet.

    No, really wish they would let us hide it, or at least put it in a folder

    Nope.

    This is by far the worst icon you're forced to have by iOS because it doesn't even do anything by itself.

    At least Stocks, Calculator etc. actually do something without having to buy additional Apps.

    I think it's there to appeal more to iPad owners than iPhone owners.

    I will. I share subscriptions with my parents and we're out and about quite often. It's much easier to just carry around my iPad/iPhone on trips than to carry all those magazines.

    Can't see a need for it to be honest. If I had an iPad then maybe that would be different

    I'll use it on my ipad, but not on my iPhone. The screen is just too small...

    No, and I'd like an option to remove it.

    I hope it's like iBooks and can be uninstalled.

    Use it? Perhaps:
    Buy any magazines for it? No.

    I'm already subscribed to Esquire ($1,99 per month is a steal IMHO), and I'm waiting for Empire to come up with their monthly plan, so yes, I'm definitely gonna use it.
