Here’s a very simple way to disable the annoying Flipboard Briefing magazine screen that takes over your galaxy / android screen when you swipe right on the home screen. The Flipboard widget seems to be mostly pre-installed on Samsung Galaxy phones and the manufacturers set it up as a trap full screen widget so that when you swipe right on your home screen, you’re completely sucked into the world of Flipboard.
Well, if you are like me and do not want Flipbloat or random apps popping up on your home screen, you can get rid of it pretty easily.
