Magazine Apps Appearing In Newsstand for iOS 5 Beta Users


Magazine apps are starting to be updated to appear in the Newsstand feature of iOS 5. In this screenshot, sent to us by reader Shawn, we can see Wired, GQ, and Popular Science apps ready for reading. At the moment, only developers with the iOS 5 developer beta can see Newsstand.

All three apps were updated today with support for Newsstand built-in. Other magazine apps, including Golf Digest and Glamour, were updated today for Newsstand support, ready for iOS 5's general release tomorrow.

It looks nice, but I'd like the ability to delete it...Especially on my iPhone.

Here's what Wired looks like after launching it:



And the multitasking tray (note the single issue):



It's nonsensical that Newsstand, a folder, is present in the tray. Ugh.

Agreed. I hate the fact I can't get rid of it on iPhone. Totally pointless since magazines are iPad-oriented.

Why isn't the store button working in the App? Is there not a magazine that I can view on iPhone to test it out?

Can you remove Newsstand, or is it mandatory like the rest of the pre-installed apps?


I think you answered your own question. just "like the rest of the pre-installed apps", no you can't delete it.

It's still totally stupid you can't put it in a folder or disable it via restrictions. I can't stand the site of it.


Oh, not only that, but depending on where you are in the world depends what you actually have available on the stupid thing.

Like iBooks. nice idea, occasionally useful as a pdf viewer, but if it has no real books in it, its no use. But at least with ibooks, i can hide it away. This moronic newstand just stays there, wasting space on my screen.
