excellent! and impossibly simple. this will do until a JB for ios6 comes along (and i can re-install the developer's excellent springtomize...)

Oh yes - This works a treat! No problems, just connect, run and finally get rid of that intrusive icon that Apple insists I must have on one of my home screens despite it being completely empty with no prospect of ever being used. Huge props to the dev for coming out with something so simple and effective without needing a jailbreak etc. For reference: iPhone 5, iOS6 - Worked first time.

Just curious - why the need to hide it inside another folder? While I don't have an iPhone, I don't find it obtrusive on my iPad. I just stick it on the last page.

Newsstand is a folder and knowing that, I'd like to have an app that would let me stack folders inside other folders. Would/could a more general version of Stifle do this?

I think that the iOS springboard UI itself would have to change to support such "nesting" of folders. Given that Apple seems to think that users shouldn't have to root around on any device through a "file system", I think one level of folders was about all we may ever see.

Please note that there is a more recent version on the developer's web site — 1.0.3 as of this writing.

The original 1.0 did not work on my iPhone, but 1.0.3 did — no Sync or Apply from iTunes necessary! Awesomesauce! :)

Worked great for my iPhone 5 with iOS6... doesn't work at all for my iPad 3 and iOS 6.

while there are other ways to do this, THIS is quick & painless.
nothing else like it! and well worth it, to tuck away an app Apple INSISTS on sticking in our faces.

Worked beautifully on my iPhone 4 with iOS 6, instantly moving Newsstand into its own folder titled "Magic".

Worked great initially. But then, I accidentally dragged another app into the "Magic" folder. Now my Magic Folder is permanently visible (unless I drag Newsstand out of it, which of course causes Newsstand to be visible again). I tried re-running StifleStand from my computer, but the Magic folder won't disappear...any suggestions?
