    I have a Note 3; first cell phone I have ever owned. Completely satisfied except for this one annoyance - from the home screen if you press the home button or swipe up from the bottom "My Magazine" appears. It does not show in App Manager so is probably part of another App. I have tried to disable any of the "bloatware" I think may be connected to this app but it still appears. Will using a different launcher solve the problem?

    Yes, using a different launcher will solve it.

    And it should appear in the app manager, under the ALL tab. I don't remember if you could turn it off or not (I don't think you could...you can in the Note 4 now, though), but I do remember 'freezing it'. But in any case, using a different launcher gets rid of it.

    Hi SpookDroid, could you recommend a launcher to me? I need this to be working immediately, it is pretty annoying.

    thanks for your response. I still can't kill it, just keeps coming back. Will download Nova launcher.

    If you're still using TouchWiz, yeah, it will come back on its own. But as long as you don't use it, it doesn't do anything.

    A lot of people like Nova, but I personally use Themer. Two different approaches to phone customization, but I like Themer better, it just makes the phone really feel different every time.

    If you want to get rid of it try this but be extra careful: 1 -connect phone to laptop or computer. 2 -go into Android. 3 -go into data. 4 -look for com.android.magazines, name may be different in different models but magazine is there, and delete. Will be still in applications list press 'force stop'. Mine is gone for a long time now. thank God!
