iOS 5 yesterday? If so, you may have noticed something dramatically un-Apple-like in its design. The Newsstand "app" for storing magazines and the like is actually a folder, which means you can't put it into folders... or so you thought!Did you upgrade your pods, phones and pads to
Newsstand is a strange, abnormal feature of iOS. It sucks up your publications, so you can't decide where they go, and it stands out badly from other folders, visually. Fortunately, though this will surely be fixed soon, there is a temporary trick to put it in a folder! All credit to 52 Tiger for discovering this, but it's important to share it with you as a public service.
Here's what you do:
- Put two apps that will go in your "news" folder next to each other, and put Newsstand right next to them.
- Drag the two normal apps together to create a folder
- Really, really quickly, while your normal apps are merging in the folder creation animation, grab Newsstand and drag it on there.
PLEASE NOTE: You can't use Newsstand if you do this. It will crash. Hard. This is just for getting it out of the way and de-uglifying your screen.
