    I'm afraid that is right. Newsstand has always been some kind of hybrid between an app and folder, behaving a bit like each. With this iteration it's gotten a bit more folder like, with one exception. It doesn't even appear in the multitask bar anymore. Unlike other folders there is no space around it to tap and exit the folder, so you end up having to use the Home button. Or you could use the four finger swipe up to go to the Multitask bar.

    The exception? It's a nice one. You can now put the Newsstand icon in a folder.

    Hold in mind I've only been playing with it for a while, so it's possible I missed something.

    I don't know if this is just me:

    I found out that I can't access my homescreen once I opened Newspaper, without using the Home button. Four finger swipe to see the multitask bar is of no use, because I can't remove the app there, and the option to go to my homescreen isn't visible.

    So I have to tap the button to close Newspaper.

    Also, the usual gesture to close an app doesn't work with Newspaper.

    I behaves more like a homescreen than an app or folder.
