Microsoft Launches Outlook for iOS with iCloud, Gmail, Yahoo Mail Support

by

Microsoft today launched its official Outlook app for iOS, which allows users to easily view and organize their email inbox, calendars, attachments, and more under one unified view. The app works with Microsoft's own Outlook.com and Office 365 services, while iCloud, Gmail, and Yahoo Mail are also compatible. Outlook for iOS also features quick gestures, as users can simply swipe to delete, archive or schedule messages.

Now, with Outlook, you really can manage your work and personal email on your phone and tablet – as efficiently as you do on your computer. And, because we know that everyone has their own, unique way to manage email, Outlook offers customizable swipes and actions, so you can tailor the experience just the way you like it. Beyond email, the new Outlook app offers integrated calendaring that makes scheduling a meeting or sharing your schedule a single tap away.

Outlook for iOS is the first app developed by Microsoft after its acquisition of email startup Accompli, which also previously developed an email client app for iOS and Android. Microsoft has stepped up its efforts in the realm of mobile productivity in the past year, bringing Office to iOS last March and launching updates that added printing capabilities and third-party fonts.

Microsoft Outlook is a free app for iOS devices and can be downloaded through App Store. [Direct Link]

I wonder if this will suck as bad as Outlook on every other platform (including Windows)?


Outlook doesn't suck. Most businesses love Outlook. Consumers with light requirements hate it mostly because of its complex nature.
Anyone with power user requirements loves Outlook...

The #1 email client in corporate world. You haven't seen IBM Lotus Notes, and Apple doesn't support anything for corporates in that area.

So yea, this is HUGE

I sure wish there was a down-vote on this forum. I consider myself a power user, and I get by just great with Apple's apps for Mail, Calendar, and Contacts. I've only seen and felt pain in an Outlook-centric setup.

Well, this app has been out for a while. Microsoft just bought the company and put their name on it. I don't believe they made any changes after they rebranded it.


I know right? Microsoft is the only company to acquire a smaller company and integrate into their portfolio of products. :rolleyes: Seriously, what are you actually complaining about? This happens all the time.

Whether or not they made changes to the app is a matter of speculation. Unless you know something we don't.

Regardless of what you want to believe, as it currently stands the App Store has this as "MICROSOFT OUTLOOK" and it states that it is version "1.0.0" and as such, as a version 1 app, it is - as I stated - working quite well for me so far.

I could care less if it it was developed by another company that was bought out by Microsoft. The fact remains that it is now owned by Microsoft and if they choose to re-sell the product as Outlook that is their right to do so. Since I never heard of the other company or App that people are claiming this app to be in a former life, this app is for all practical purposes Microsoft Outlook.
