StifleStand Puts Newsstand In A Folder On Any iOS Device, No Jailbreak Required

Wouldn’t it to be nice to hide it in a folder with all the other stock apps you don’t you use, like that stupid Compass app?

Then, when we tried to figure out how to unsubscribe from the darn things, we realized we were at a loss.
