    To put Newsstand into a folder you need to be quick. The work-around requires a new folder to be made, so take any two apps and place one upon the other to create one.

    While the new folder is being made, this is your chance to get Newsstand out of sight. As the new folder is being created you will need to quickly drag the Newsstand icon into the folder. If you are quick enough Newsstand, will go into the folder, and the job will be done. This simple straightforward tip will work with any other folder, too so you can now place any folder into another handy!

    But if you ever click Newsstand in that folder, your springboard will re-spring, and it will pop back out to the desktop.

    I don't plan on using it. I just moved it to a new last page by itself.

    Nice find. I like how it doesnt show the app in the folder either, only when the folder is open do you see the app.

    Nice find!
    It did cause my phone to freeze though...
    So I decided to just pull it out of the folder.

    Newstand is just one of those things I won't ever use...at least not at the moment.

    Wish Apple would have an option inside settings to hide certain apps. I get not being able to delete native apps, but hiding them would be a nice feature.

    You guys do realize that you found a bug and are using that to do something that is as likely as not to cause problems with file management on your device.

    The bug has been reported to Apple (in the bug track system since August) and I'm sure they will squash it soon.

    I for one would not force nested folders through this mechanism on a production device. Certainly not one where I expect things like backups and file management to work...

    Good luck.
