Update: Please note that opening Newsstand while inside a folder will crash Springboard. Those wishing to use Newsstand should not put it inside a folder. If you simply want to hide it and never use it, you can try this. Or, you know, just move it to the last screen.
Technically, Apple’s Newsstand is just a styled folder, and you can’t put a folder into a folder. Still, that behavior irks some users. Someone at The Coding Massacre has discovered a work-around that requires a quick hand:
- Take two apps and go to create a folder
- The second the apps are in the folder and it’s doing the folder creation animation, drag Newsstand into the folder
- As long as you’re quick enough Newsstand will go into the folder!
I tried it and it worked. Just be very quick about it (noting, of course, the caveat above).
