Outlook comes to iOS and Android

Outlook comes to iOS and Android

Microsoft has finally released an application on your email service Outlook for both iOS and Android. With this move the Redmond want to fight face to face with the Gmail app as it also offers the ability to add accounts Google and Yahoo Mail, and iCloud.

Microsoft had no Outlook application and that you were winning all the major companies. And perhaps it has come a bit late. The reason is that applications like Gmail and native iOS already have the possibility to add the Outlook account so perhaps many users do not lack an implementation of Microsoft.

But to try to convince those users who already had well-ordered their Hotmail emails from Outlook or another application, Microsoft has implemented several features that attract attention and can convince enough people. The first thing to say is that Outlook not only provides access to email folder. Also synchronize contacts with Microsoft and accounts like Dropbox and OneDrive so we can add attachments to emails either of these storage services in the cloud.

Differences between iOS and Android

Although the functions are basically the same, Microsoft has respected each design operating systems so that the use of the application is quite intuitive. Moreover, unlike apps and Gmail Inbox, Outlook allows you to schedule sending emails. It is also possible to schedule when receiving certain emails, something which is present in Inbox.

Another thing that attract attention is that it separates Outlook emails between priority and others, taking account of contacts and those with whom we interact more. Obviously it is customizable if we are not quite agree with the separation that makes Microsoft itself.

In closing I must say that the app is multiaccounting Outlook so we can add Gmail, Yahoo, iCloud, Exchangue, OneDrive, Dropbox and Box. If you want will download the app for iOS only have to click here. If you want to Android, here.
