    Ive searched the forums and everybody says to turn off the app you got to application manager/all then hit the turn off button. Well, my turn off button is greyed out. I've cleared cache, cleared data, cleared defaults. I've turned off flipboard and google newstand. Help me!! This piece of crap app is still running and draining my battery.

    I don't think you can turn it off without rooting as it's a (annoying) part of TouchWiz. And unless you set it up to update regularly and open it on a daily basis, it might be running but it's not draining your battery any more than TouchWiz is.

    Yeah, but if I'm not mistaken that doesn't keep the app from running in the background, ironically... And I'm not even sure you can do that on an S5. You can on the Note 4, but I can't on my Tab S, and since the tablet is a 'sandwich' version between the S5 and Note 4, I'm assuming the S5 cannot just turn My Magazine 'off' like that. But I might be wrong.

    It takes my magazine from swipe left, so you can scroll through homepage freely
    Note 4 took a lot of features from s5
    I have the s5...

    I wonder why the Tab S didn't borrow that option. I also don't use My Magazine, it would have been nice to be able to remove it from the Home Page.

    Up until 4.4.4 appeared on my S5, I had MyMagazine "Turned OFF"

    Now, with 4.4.4 it is greyed out as mentioned and aggravates me no end. I have no use for that POS app.

    To turn off my magazine. Hold the menu button until the you see Home screen setting. Click on that, once you have done that unchecknthe box where it says my magazine.

    FWIW: On my variant (SM-G900T1), The MENU key described above is now a dedicated RECENT APPS key. On stock rom you get to Home Screen Settings by tapping & holding anywhere on the screen (similar to when you want to drag an icon elsewhere!) Softkeys will appear for Wallpapers, Widgets and Home Screen Settings. Instructions are the same after this point.

    Now if I can only get my home screen carousel to spin completely round and round!

    Yes, you make it go away with the said method on the S5. That was one of the first things I did when I got this phone. I also think Nova Launcher gets rid of it. Just to test, I set Touch Wiz as the default launcher, enabled the MyMagazine setting and then switched back to Nova and the MyMagazine was gone.

    Yup, MyMagazine is part of TouchWiz. If you use a different launcher, it's no longer in your Homescreen but can still be accessed through the App Drawer.

    If you allready cleared my magazine off your home screen, you can also putt if off at Active Programas at Applicationfiles... just click on it? Clear cache, remove memory and set it off.. just that simple.

    I have a Galaxy Note 3. I have seen the same click on an empty area and hold instructions for the home screen settings. I don't see any home screen settings doing this or holding any button. I too have the same issue with My Magazine being unable to be turned off so I can (a) not have it pop up with a swipe up and (b) not have it pull data that I potentially don't want. I'll use a standalone app if I wish. Speaking of which, Flipboard is the same problem, can't disable it.

    If you are using TouchWiz long press the home screen and pick home screen settings. Uncheck My Magazine then close.

    That may get it out of sight, but it doesn't turn it off. It will constantly run in the background.

    It can't be turned off. You can only hide it..

    Right. I'm not sure if you're just agreeing with me or what...

    The title asks about turning it off and I was just saying it can't be done (if it's stock).

    At one time you could turn of my magazine but samsung fixed it where you can no longer do so..
