Outlook for Android Now Ready for the Real World
Robert Ainsworth / 1 year ago
After releasing 17 updates since its original launch, the Microsoft application has now had the preview title removed from the Play store. The team at Microsoft have had high expectations for Outlook, and whilst enhancing the apps performance and removing bugs they named the app as a Preview.
The application brings some new and welcomed features that make it a lot different from the standard mail client on your Android. The app features IMAP support, a revised people section, directory searching, swipe gestures and much more; the majority of the new features and changes have been requested by the end users.
“We’ve continued to polish the look and feel of the app. We updated our icon sets and simplified our fonts to provide a more consistent Outlook experience across operating systems and devices. But it was also important for Outlook to feel like a natural part of Android. We use common Android design principles like the Navigation Drawer to house the multiple tools offered in the app and have common actions like settings available in the App Overflow menu,” Microsoft explains.
The Application is available to Android users running version 4.0 and higher. The latest version of the app is 1.1.9 and is available to download here
