Let’s be serious; most people don’t use the Newsstand app. I know I don’t. Yet, iOS does not allow users to hide it in a folder. Therefore, it’s a useless app taking up space on your home screen. Fortunately, there is an extremely simple solution that only takes about thirty seconds!
From your Mac or PC download an app called ‘StifleStand.’ It is a very small file and the download time should only be about one or two seconds.
Once it’s downloaded, open the file and the following screen should appear:
Connect your iPhone or iPad to your computer with the USB cable. StifleStand will immediately recognize your device is connected.
Hit the ‘Hide Newsstand’ button and watch your Newsstand app ‘magically’ disappear into a folder. The folder will be named ‘Magic’ but you can just as easily rename it into anything you want and put in any other apps you want to keep in there.
Notice the folder named ‘Magic’ You can rename it & add other apps
It’s as simple as that! No fuss, no jailbreaking. If you actually do use Newsstand then don’t bother with this. The app won’t open when it’s inside a folder. That being said, if you do put Newsstand in a folder and want to eventually use it again all you have to do is drag it out of the folder and it will work just fine. So give it a try; you’ll be glad you did!
