Difference between Newsstand and home screen apps

Newsstand is not a conventional app but a category on the Apple App Store with a special representation on the device. Newsstand can best be regarded as a special folder on the home screen. It contains Newsstand apps, which are represented with their latest cover image instead of an app icon as in home screen apps . Newsstand apps are designed for periodicals and magazines and are said to have better sales figures. They also support special features, such as background downloads, which are not available for home screen apps. Just try out one of our free newsstand examples (e.g. Flush the Fashion) and one of the free home screen examples (e.g. Timeless Quality Products) to get a better idea.
