    Just saw this on Twitter, no indication of when it will be released but I know many people would appreciate this functionality. This is the same guy that developed the Springtomize jailbreak tweaks that I've found very useful.

    StifleStand: put the Newsstand icon inside a folder on any device running iOS 5.x/6.x (even unjailbroken ones) http://filippobiga.com/sstand.png

    Windows version coming soon.

    Looks like it's Mac only for now, Windows version coming soon. I won't be testing it as I'm still jailbroken and have it hidden altogether.

    This is good info. Really need a way to get that thing into a folder. Sick of looking at it. I barely use it.

    Thanks for posting about it! (y)

    Need this for the iPhone. Why doesn't Apple allow this?

    Just downloaded the zip file, extracted it and ran the program. It did NOT work on iPhone5 with IOS6.

    You might want to contact the developer via Twitter.

    That's too bad, I guess it's not as advertised then. :(

    Has anyone had success with this on any device/iOs version?

    Thanks. I searched for "Newsstand" before posting this and that didn't show up. Not sure why.

    Because Newsstand is a folder and Apple doesn't allow putting folders in folders.

    It worked fine for me.

    Passbook? Apple already allows placing it in a folder.

    I wonder if this might have something to do with it?

    No, I don't have anything in Newsstand. Thanks.
    [Edit] Also. I am running Mountain Lion on my Mac. The program runs, then says done, yet the newsstand will not go into any folder, nor combine with any item to make a folder. Oh well.
    [Extra Edit] Out of curiosity, I ran this on my iPhone 4 and it hid the newsstand(with items in it) in a folder called "magic". That was kinda cool but odd. It will not work on my ip5.
