iOS 5 Newsstand hidden in a folder

Annoyed by Newsstand that comes with iOS 5? Here’s a little trick how to hide it in a folder (and it doesn’t require jailbreaking your device):

  • Take two apps and move them over each other to create a folder
  • When those apps merge into the folder and you see the folder creation animation, quickly drag Newsstand into the folder too
  • Newsstand and your two apps will be in that folder, now you can move the other two apps out of it if you like

If you’re really quick you’re able to hide Newsstand in a folder. Just don’t try to open Newsstand from within that folder as it will crash springboard.

The same allegedly also works with folder within folders. Haven’t tried that yet though.
