The forum is not my home, there is no duty to stay or leave or keep to any word that was allegedly previously stated, but in the future-
If you'd like to discuss the topic, I will discuss with you. If you spam up the topic I will report you.

Newstand annoys a lot of people. But it's only certain people who get butt hurt about the truth about it. Like I said though, don't take it out on me, take it out on the millions of people who helped give Newstand it's almost universal disapproval.
The funny thing is those people who are coincidentally are the same people that say they like it, cannot muster up a reason as to why they do.

motoleo if you hate Newsstand so much why not just hide it like I do. You can also turn Siri off or add functionality through jailbreaking.
I just hate to see a discussion about a feature(s) get so heated.

I'm not defending newsstand. I just don't care about it. I'm just amazed at how someone can speak for millions of people without providing studies or evidence. It's, you know.....stupid.
You have to ask yourself. What is so bad about an app that causes so many people to go through great lengths to hide it?
Isn't that just profound?
That's a big concession hundreds of thousands of people make in order to make their iPhones seem better. The first thing they do when they get a new iPhone is jailbreak it, just to hide Newstand.
What a phenomenon.

But beyond that annoyance, I truly doubt that the majority of iOS users even care. They can ignore it, move it to the last page, or whatever.
I'd be interested in seeing actual numbers - doubtful that "thousands" actually jailbreak JUST to hide the Newsstand (and yes, there are TWO 's's in the word)... Of course, we all acknowledge that 83.4% of all statistics are made up on the spot to support the person's perspective.

Everyone wants it hidden.

First of all, nowhere near "everyone" reads/visits iMore, Gizmodo, CNET or Engadget. Sure the techies do... but the vast majority of iOS device users have never visited a blog or forum dealing with iOS.
The media whips these issue up and stirs up whatever peccadillo they can to "create" the issue in many cases. With the hundreds of millions of devices in circulation, do you honestly think "everyone" (or even a majority) of them care? I seriously doubt the mainstream iOS users are even aware. Just because it's on the phone, it doesn't mean you have to look at it, use it or even be aware of it.
(How did they even find that folder fix? I really want to know the roots of where that came from.)
Before I bought an iPhone, I never knew that compass existed, some apps you really don't notice. But Newstand is just, I don't know if it's the color of the icon, but it just annoys me for some odd reason.

So newsstand and Siri annoy you but Compass, GameCenter, Stocks and Voice Memos get a pass?
