    Okay, I'll admit it - that IS weird and I've never seen that before! Is that maybe a newspaper subscription that should have gone into Newsstand?

    Have you tried to either restart or reset your iPad? If you don't know (and apologies if you do), here's how:

    Restart: Hold down the power button until the power off slider appears. Slide it off. When the iPad finishes shutting down, hold down the power button again until the Apple logo appears.

    Reset: Hold both the power and home buttons until the screen goes dark and the Apple logo then appears (the slide to unlock screen may or may not appear). Once the logo appears, release the buttons. After a time, your homescreen will appear. Please note that it may take some time for the Apple logo to appear or for your homescreen to appear (or both). This is normal. Eventually, the homescreen will appear.

    If the above doesn't work, all I can suggest is a visit to the Geniuses at an Apple Store. Cause, that - for sure! - is not supposed to be happening.

    Sorry to be of no help.

    i just figured it out. there is a bug using way to hide newstand from your springboard and keep it in folder, thus when downloading newspapers they appear strictly on springboard.

    Ah! I knew that would come back to bite someone eventually. (smug vindicated look).

    Glad it wasn't serious, though.

    If you use the iOS bug to put Newsstand in a folder, you have no idea what the ramifications are. You could end up corrupting backups or even bricking your phone. iOS does NOT handle nested folders...
