Microsoft's Outlook App for iOS is better than Gmail

Microsoft’s new e-mail app, which is exclusively for iOS was released at the end of January 2015 and it seems that Microsoft’s Outlook app is getting a lot of positive reviews in terms of function and look as this app supports Yahoo-Mail, Gmail, Exchange and more with inbuilt calendar syncs. It is expected that this app will be better alternative of Gmail’s official app on iOS platform.

According to anonymous users Microsoft’s Outlook app deserves hype because after installing and using this app I’ve not felt the need to use Gmail app since then. Yes, it is true that there are scopes for few improvements as Gmail and Inbox by Gmail is better in categorizing mails.

While using this app I felt that sometimes it doesn’t show most relevant contacts and to find any specific contact you might have to scroll a lot. In Microsoft’s Outlook app account setting is pretty easy. If you wish to set up multiple accounts, so you can do same in one app and as per wish you can view each inbox separately or together. This app is good enough to cover all the major e-mail service providers such as; Yahoo, Box, Exchange, Dropbox, Outlook, Exchange, iCloud, OneDrive and Gmail and with this facility you can sync your Gmail and Office mail at the same time in same app.

This app also allows you to set different swiping gestures for every e-mail as you can swipe an email from left to right. If you have subscribe for many different website or getting a lot of emails from different websites, so sometimes it becomes tedious task to hunt for important mails, but with this app you can bundle them into one particular coherent group as per the content of mail. Same as Gmail, which is good enough to categorizes emails into different tabs such as; Promotions, Primary, Updates, Group or Inbox, it has Focus inbox that has emails from your colleagues and as well as personal contacts.

The other tabs are useful to keep the record of emails from Twitter, Facebook, your bank bill, Amazon and your purchases, but the good thing is that it keep Focus tab clean and simple. Apart from basic features, you can set Mark as Read¸ None, Flag, Delete, Schedule, Move, Archive and more. The other interesting feature is that if you have gotten some annoying email, so you will get the freedom to delete it straight from the notification bar.

This new app will help you to make the good use of extensions feature in iOS8 because it let you to share the files and attachment in another supporting app. This app have automatically sync feature with your iOS and Google calendar as well, which make it’s pretty convenient to schedule meeting or events. In emails separate tab showcase all the files and attachment, but the best thing is that it will syncs with Dropbox and Google Drive as well, whereas; on slide menu on left side you can see the Birthday, Holidays in India, Contacts’ and more in the calendar as well and this feature can be pretty important and useful for users in India.

Microsoft Finally Has an Outlook App That Doesn't Suck

A large number of Outlook users had long waited for a designated email app for Android and iOS platform. Microsoft had released cross platform email app for its widely popular email service Outlook which runs flawlessly on Android and iOS. This new app is gaining popularity and appreciation for its higher functionality which sets it apart from other email clients by bring in the multitasking. This app even provides support for non-Microsoft accounts such as Gmail and Yahoo who can cherish using this innovative app for accessing their different accounts.

The Features of New Outlook App

For starters this app isn’t an original Microsoft product rather it is brushed up app overtaken from mobile developer Accompli. This simply translates that this app doesn’t support all the features of Outlook for Windows. This app includes a built-in calendar and other features which makes the finding attachments and contact easier without going through the inbox. This new app is drawing huge praises from all corners due to intuitive design, interactive user interface and higher functionality than other counterparts.

Outlook users had long relied on third party apps as well as web apps to access their Outlook accounts. Microsoft had even launched some mobile version of Outlook in past to address the user’s problems with its Outlook web app but it was available only a limited number of iPhone and Android smartphones which was not an ideal solution.

This new app easily syncs the calendar data from multiple accounts such as from Gmail, Yahoo, iCloud etc. This new app even omits some of the extra properties like the color-coded categories and the ability to make distinction between an appointment and a meeting. An analyst had even praised this app by saying that Microsoft had finally freed the Outlook email from the confines of the office PC.

Microsoft Welcomes Suggestions From Users With Preview

This new Outloook app is also set to bring the touch optimized feel of Outlook App which is designed for Windows 10. Just like the other Microsoft’s previous Android app releases, the first version of Outlook will have a ‘preview’ label which helps in collecting feedbacks from users with different types of devices. Currently Microsoft had removed the preview label from the Android tablet versions of Word, Excel and PowerPoint apps and now these apps are free for use on Android platform.

Microsoft Generates Cross Platform App

Microsoft just looks like stretching its core windows product to all the prospective customers by launching cross-platform apps one after another. Microsoft saw a great success with its Skype app and later on Office apps for both iOS and Android platform. The latest release of the Outlook app for cross platform performance will help in bringing additional revenue to Microsoft which earlier only concentrated on building Windows app which had limited reach. At the moment Microsoft’s broader goal is to help its customers become more productive regardless of their location and device with different cross platform apps.

Thursday, 18 April 2013 a replacement for Hotmail

In late November, Microsoft released an Android app for its service gently took the Hotmail site. Some users laughed, as only the logo and color code of the company was so different from what was available until then. Fortunately, with the version that has been published, you are entitled to real change. For several months, Microsoft implements replacing Hotmail by service. Look reworked and simplified and enhanced ergonomics, and everything is there to try to gain ground, especially against an ever Gmail also essential when it comes to webmail. It is in the context of the reorganization that had been right last November in an Android application that was actually nothing new. Indeed, it was a simple copy of Hotmail for Android with a blue logo and an inability to be offered in a language other than English. But Microsoft has finally decided to change things and just put online a new version Behind it lies a deep questioning of the interface that is unified from the online service. A menu on the left allows you to manage multiple accounts and you will find the option to add a flag to a mail exchange management in the form of conversations, sorting by statute or indicator. The parameters are already quite full and PIN protection, management of different character sets, the push, folders, calendars, or periods of inactivity can be found. The whole is rather successful, but we have yet encountered some delays and crashes on some devices including the Nexus 7.
