If you’re like me than you absolutely detest Google’s new Category inbox for Gmail. I found disabling the feature through my web browser easy however the new feature would not disable on my Android phone.
Several forum users recommended running a factory reset on the phone, among other time wasting remedies. I found the following steps worked.
1. Open up Gmail and go into your account settings and tap Inbox categories.
2. Un-check all the options. If the categories do not go away or remain selected after re-launching the application follow the remaining steps below.
3. Find the Gmail application in the Applications settings menu
4. Open Gmail in your applications settings and tap Clear cache and then Clear data. You can ignore the dire warning about loosing your settings
5. Reset your device
6. Open up Gmail and go into your account settings and tap in Inbox categories, all of the categories should be unchecked.
NOTE: These steps were performed on a Sprint Samsung Galaxy S4 running Android 4.2.2. Gmail application version 4.5.2-714156

The Vernal Equinox (start of spring) was at 07:02 EDT this morning; it sure didn’t look or feel like spring.
My grandfather was an instrumental figure in the redevelopment of Newport after the Navy pulled out and nearly crippled the city. He authored this book (though hasn’t sent it to an actual publisher yet).
Great facts and photographs!

Unlike other animals, humans are quite comfortable sleeping on our backs. This simple fact affords us a view of the boundless night sky as we fall asleep, allowing us to dream about our place in the cosmos and to wounder what lies undiscovered in the worlds beyond.
Or perhaps a gene operates within us that demands we learn for ourselves what awaits us on the other side of the valley, over the seas, or across the vacuum of space. Regardless of the cause, the effect is to leave us restless for want of a plan to discover. We know in our minds, but specially in our hearts, the value to our culture of new voyages and the new vistas they provide. Because without them, our culture stalls and out species withers. And we might as well go to sleep facing down.
