I have the Gmail on my iPhone and iPad, both running the latest version or iOS and the Gmail app. In the app, is there any way to get rid of/hide the 'important' and 'all mail'. When I toggle the sidebar in the app, both those labels appear under the 'more' category. Everything I've tried so far hasn't worked.

If you login to Gmail (not the mobile site) via the browser, you can go to:

  • Settings (the wheel right on top)
  • Filters
  • Uncheck the Show in IMAP
  • after a short time the folders will be invisible in the mail apps.
  • This hides them from MobileMail but not the Gmail app

  • That's a google fail!

Currently, this is not possible.

You can send feedback to Google through the app: gear icon → Help and Feedback….
