Microsoft Outlook mail app for iOS and Android looks great

All the email features you need on your smartphone

If you always hate how the email apps you have tried didn’t work the way you want it to, you might be tempted to try out Microsoft newly released Outlook app after you have read this.

It’s proven. Emails aren’t productive and sometimes a timewaster. The new Outlook app is solving this problem, rather than get distracted by unimportant emails, Outlook is smart enough to know which emails are important and places them in the Focused tab. We tried and it works pretty well and Microsoft claims it will get better when we continue to use it.

The other lifesaver feature is the ability to customize swipes. You can select your left and right swipes to do the following – Archive, delete, schedule (till later), move, mark as read/unread and flagging it.

Microsoft latest mail app doesn’t force you to use their services exclusively, you can add and browse files from OneDrive, Dropbox, iCloud or Box and receive emails from Yahoo, Google apps or Gmail. Email signatures are customizable on every different email account.

Calendaring is available too, allowing you to have a bird’s eye view of the events from the calendars on different email accounts, though honestly we still prefer to use Sunrise app for more calendaring options. It’s still a good feature since you won’t need to switch apps to view your calendars.

Microsoft seems to be getting things in the right direction, after announcing Windows 10 free upgrade and the introduction of HoloLens. The Outlook app is surprisingly fast even after combining all the best features found on other mail apps. It is free to download on Google Play or App Store now.
