I just got a new Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and it has the annoying feature of "My Magazine". I was able to unbind "My Magazine" from using Home button, however, is there a way to turn it off (like with some other apps: Settings -> Applications -> All -> {app name} -> "Turn Off")? I have searched around the net and seems like that option is available for Galaxy S5 users, however, could not find anything for Note 3.

  • I hate the My Magazine app! I would love to be rid of it and bound the home button to something useful. – dotancohen Jul 24 '14 at 16:45

    I know this is an old thread, but in case you're still annoyed by My Magazine, the Android 5.0 Lollipop update allows you to completely disable the app (not uninstall it, but it's still a huge improvement.) – user103879 Apr 24 '15 at 4:44

The "My Magazine" feature is integrated into the Touchwiz launcher, so there's really no way to completely turn it off under Jelly Bean. If you freeze/disable the app you'll see frequent crashes.

If you're still under Jelly Bean, you unfortunately cannot do what Robert suggests because it only applies to Lollipop. However, the simple way to get rid of this piece of crap is to simply install say the NOVA launcher, or any other available in Google Play.
