Update: The app is now available. You can get it here: http://filippobiga.com/stiflestand/
Here’s some good news for those of you who dislike (OK, lets be real – hate) the Newsstand folder on your iPhone or other iDevices. That’s ‘special’ folder that holds a number of leading newspaper and magazine apps for iOS, and the one that Apple does not allow us to delete or place within a folder.
The good news is that there’s a Mac app called StifleStand that should be released very soon that allows you to put Newsstand in a folder.
It looks super simple to use, does not require jailbreak, and should work with all iOS devices running iOS 5 or greater. You can check out a video demo of the app at iDownloadBlog.
Those of use who actually use Newsstand will want to avoid using this app, as Newsstand and the titles within it won’t work correctly when in a folder.
Thanks to Devin at The Coding Massacre for the tip on this.
