Put Newsstand In A Folder On Any iOS Device, No Jailbreak Required

StifleStand is a simple Windows program to move the Newsstand icon into a folder but what makes StifleStand special is that it doesn’t require a jailbreak in order to use it, which means that it even works with the new iPhone 5. No doubt, hundreds of users who despise Newsstand flocked to the app, but Windows users were sadly left in the cold.. until now the developer (Filippo Bigarella) has released a version for Windows (v1.1)

Here’s how to do it

  • Download and run StifleStand as administrator
    1. Mac OSX / Windows OS
  • Connect your IOS device
  • Swipe to the page where your Newsstand app is located.
  • Click Hide Newsstand on StifleStand, and watch the Newsstand app be whisked away into a folder called “Magic”.
  • However here are some points to note

  • You will not be able to use Newsstand while inside a folder, attempting to launch it will send your back to your Lock screen if not jailbroken, or kick you into safe mode if jailbroken.
  • To regain your Newsstand app, simple drag it out of the folder.
  • You can add additional apps to the Magic folder, and use them as usual.
  • You can rename the Magic folder
  • If you have problems getting StifleStand to work, it may be because you have too many apps installed on your device (See Filippo Bigarella’s tweet)
  • What do you think of StifleStand? Is it smart, clever or just pointless? Let us know in the comments below personally the app doesn’t bother me.
