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.

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

Don't use Newsstand and want to hide it in a folder? I can confirm that this new method works on stock iPhones running iOS 6.o. (y)

It's Mac-only right now, but a Windows version should be available soon. Newsstand must be empty for this to work.

I would give you 1,000 likes for this if I could! Thank you, thank you, thank you for posting the link... I really loathe that Newsstand icon and now it's gone!

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.
