    I noticed you cannot move this app into a folder. How weird! I don't really think I'll use it.. Did anyone else notice that??

    Yes. I noticed that too. I probably will never use it thanks to zinio.

    I'm dissapointed in it. I thought it was going to be an Apple version on Zinio but all it seems to be is a fancy way of displaying app shortcuts.

    Bummer really. I have created a folder called 'Other' for all my unused/unwanted apps. I like a real uncluttered screen. Like you say, I can't even move it into that folder. Instead I have just moved it onto a blank new page!

    Yeah same. I'm hoping they'll change that in a future update at some point because at the moment it's just chilling on my 2nd homescreen, don't really know what to do with it as I doubt I'll ever use it.

    Because it is a folder-esque interface itself.

    The Newstand app is already a folder...

    Newstand isn't even really an app it seems. I'm kind of confused by it really.

    Same here. I have a "iDONTUSE" folder, this is where I'd like to put it. I'd use the app if there was a magazine worth downloading on there yet...But even then, it has to go in a folder. I can't stand it set as it is.

    I have noticed it too. It is a useless app and you can't do anything with it. I also have just moved it to a blank page. Hope they allow us to delete it or put it in a folder in future updates.

    Newsstand is a joke. It's literally an app that simulates a bookshelf...that's it. It's the third party magazine apps that are the true "applications", but of course all of the subscription and content is handled app-by-app.

    Apple should have just bought something like Zinio or copied it. Zinio has plenty of problems, but it's much closer to what Newsstand appears to be than does Newsstand itself. My only gripe with Zinio is that I can't get it to reliably save my DL'ed magazines for offline viewing. But since they're stored in the cloud (and even viewable on PC), this is more of a mere inconvenience, which I hope they will correct.

    i know people who jailbreak JUST to remove it because they are like me and prefer to have all of their apps on one page

    ..chalk up another one for the jailbreak community

    You can put it into a folder.

    1. Take an app (other than newstand) and place it it ontop of another app (other than newsstand)
    2. As those two apps (non-newstand) create a folder; quickly move your newstand into that "creating folder animatin"
    3. PRESTO - newstand in a folder.


    When you tether sync (with a data cable) your phone or update your phone it will pull the newstand out and put it back on the home screen.

    Enjoy!

    you forgot to mention what happens when you try to open newsstand while it is within a folder. it crashes the device which causes instability

    and if you have instability you might as well be jailbroken, correct?

    Many have it hidden away in a folder just because they don't use it.
