    Thanks! Took me a few tries to to hide it.  We should contact apple about making an update that lets us delete it off of the iPhone. I can keep it on iTunes but I too get annoyed with clutter.

    I have been looking for my favourite newspaper-reader but could not find it anywhere... I the removed it in iTunes and reinstalled it from the Appstore. Only THEN I noticed it went into the Newsstand...

    Now I want to take it OUT of the stand and move it to the place I want it to be...

    So far I have not found a way to do so...

  • Adam van Gaalen Level 2 Level 2 (255 points)

    Bad luck...

     

    I put it in a folder as described above, but then, when trying to launch it (to be able to start my newspaper-reader) it crashes my iPad...

     

    Sad...

    excellent, worked for me too, it is hidden now, thanks

    Remove twitter the same as any app.

    I think it is pretty obvious that there isn't a way to remove it at this point.

  • f4denz Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Well I figured the only way I would get apple to actually pay attention to what customers want, like the ability to delete (not hide) newsstand is to unsubscribe to anything that they seemed to think that they had a right to remove from my device and install in their app.  So gone is my 5 year subscription to wired, and my subscription to the daily.  Perhaps if their partners lose enough business because of stupid moves like this it will cause them to allow me to decide what apps I want on my device and how I want them to work.

     

    This is also why I use my Galaxy Tab 10.1 more than my ipad lately, there I can decided how my device works.

    You can hide it in a group, but the next time you sync it is placed right back on the screen.

    "There is a way:

     

    • 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!

     

    Be very quick about it!"

     

    Brilliant!

     

    Thank you guys so much!!  It was real annoying to have this on the last 'page' by itself just to get it out of the way.  I don't know what apple was thinking with an app like this.  I mean, Safari is my news app.  I don't see the point of expecting people to pay more for what they already pay for.  I find it rude actually... like spam or pop-ups.

     

    Now if you can just get rid of the "Search iPhone" blank screen that shows up when I hit the "home" button OR swipe to the left, I'd have no frustrations at all   I really liked iOS when I knew that hitting the home button would actually take me to the first home screen.  Even if there was a delay from processing, I could hit it again and it would just GO the home screen.  Same for swiping all the way to the left. Who uses the "Search iPhone" feature anyway?  How is it helpful?  What kinds of things have people 'lost' that need to be searched for?  There are at least 3 other ways to search for contacts, so it must be something else?  I have over 91 apps installed and honestly can't think of 1 thing that I need to search for.

     

    Apple should take pride in making devices that aren't "Frustrating" to use.   Keep it simple to keep your customers.

     

    P.S.  I have about 100 good things to say about the iPhones and I'm probably their greatest non-paid salesman.  This is just 2 of the very few nuisances.

    And a better question is "Why not?"

    Speculation on Apple policies is prohibited by the Terms of Use of these forums. And, from my point of view, it's way to trivial to worry about.

  • pat from plantation Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I also am annoyed by this new folder.  I previously had my New York Times app and now it has been absorbed into this new folder. Since it is the only news app in the folder, that is pretty useless. Plus I now have to take two steps to read the NY Times.  Why is this folder being pushed down our throats?

  • pat from plantation Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Yeah. I deleted the NY Times and then tried reinstalling it, but just went back into this folder by itself. I have all my other publications or news sources together and missing the Times.

  • IBL2010 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Doesn't work for me. iPhone 4 (not jailbroken), bought it contract free from Apple here in the UK. It doesn't allow dropping another icon on it to create a folder or dropping the Newsstand icon into another (already created) folder neither..

     

    These 2 icons - newsstand and reminders are simply awful...

  • ritchiefromfountain Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Complain here https://myaccount.nytimes.com/membercenter/help.html I think it will pile up faster.

    You sir, are a gentleman and a scholar. Fantastic solution. this is exactly what I needed. I'm sure that later on they'll realize that most of the magazines/newspapers subscriptions are actually not free and to read anything remotely useful you have to subscribe -.- useless app imo. plenty of great other ones out there like reeder.
