Microsoft announced the release of Outlook for iOS and a preview of Outlook for Android. This is BIG news for everyone that lives and breaths emails for work. Chances are that you have been using the built-in email and calendar apps of your smart device, and chances are that you have been missing out on some great features.
Well…complain no more. Microsoft came out with their mobile version of Outlook and it looks quite promising. As soon as I found out that the app is available on the app store, I installed it on my iPhone 6. Setup of my email was simple, intuitive and quick. And YES – you do have the option to setup syncing with Exchange, Outlook.com, Gmail, iCloud, Yahoo, OneDrive, Box, and DropBox!!! How amazing is that? Pretty amazing if you ask me.
I loved the fact that now I have my calendar and emails in one place. This is great and I will not miss my built-in email and calendar apps. I actually turned them OFF already. Microsoft also gives you the option to view all your email attachments in one place. So if you are looking for an email with a specific file, you can find it quickly via that option.
