Baahh - I still have an original ipad and the OWA for iPad app requires a front facing camera. EMAIL shouldn't require any camera. It's email, not video conferencing like skype.

This app is for Office 365 for Business ($60-180/year per user), not to be confused with Office 365 Home Premium ($99.99/year for up to 5 PCs/Macs).

If you ask me, Microsoft created too many tiers.

Microsoft is a good friend for Apple to have.

LOL, uh what? Some people here including you need to realize that Microsoft's past trump cards are becoming less relevant as time passes. At this point MS has way more misses than hits and they are more in need of having Apple as a friend rather than the opposite. You need to get an iGrip on reality. :p

That's a bit creepy. This is Microsoft-- they're supposed to be lame, not creepy. Google has the market cornered for creepy.

There's one subscription option for home users, and 3 for businesses. I fail to see how this is too many. Please explain. :confused:

ZDNET: Microsoft delievers OWA (http://www.zdnet.com/microsoft-delivers-native-outlook-web-app-clients-for-iphone-ipad-7000018143/)

If you don't think the plan explanation just sounds painful, then nope, there are not too many tiers.
