If you’ve ever wanted to put the Newstand icon away in a folder, this is the trick for you.
You will need StifleStand for Mac. The app is available here. It’s free.
You don’t need a jailbreak. Just run StifleStand on your Mac, plug in your iOS device and hit the “Hide Newsstand” button on StifleStand. Newsstand will be placed in a folder, where it is out of the way.
