    The new outlook app, what do you think of this email app... thoughts?

    So far hands down better than the gmail app.

    If one's primary email account is on an Exchange server the Outlook app is probably a good thing to use...

    It's formerly the Acompli app, isn't it? Anyway, thus far it is working well on my iPhone 6 Plus, and I am only using it to access my Outlook.com account.

    They said it's not a replacement but a whole new app for that old one.

    Well, they flat out lied because it looks and functions exactly the way it did when it was called Acompli, in my opinion...

    I understand, and it's actually a pretty good email app. Having said that, I'm not sure how long I'll keep using it for my Outlook.com account being that the native Mail app is more than sufficient for all of my emailing needs.

    That has always been my thoughts, All I do with email is read it and sort it, the native app does this fine for all my accounts.

    Yep, that's what I thought., and the only change I can see is in regard to the name and branding. Everything else appear to be exactly as it were under the Acompli brand, but that's also a good thing...

    I'm not really sure what the big deal is. I went back to using the built in app for iPad Air II. I didn't even bother to install it on my iPhone...

    Looks like a good app with a nice UI, but I prefer the Mail app. No need for an extra app that uses up my storage to do the same thing that a native app can do. Just my 2 cents.

    Just found about this...

    Outlook app for iOS stores all emails and user credentials in the cloud !

    See details https://blog.winkelmeyer.com/2015/01...tlook-app-for-...

    But then again, don't they all do the same. Gmail, Yahoo, Icloud etc. All do the same thing.

    I am now using this app as my only email app for Gmail, Outlook.com, and iCloud.

    Yesterday I saw on iMore/AC about the Outlook app. Then I saw read this;

    The best Gmail app for the iPhone is now made by Microsoft | The Verge

    Then I read this;
    Microsoft Outlook For iPhone - Business Insider

    Then this morning I read this;
    Outlook For iOS Better Than Gmail - Business Insider

    So I set it all up to try it out. I've only been using it for a few hours now and I think I'm going to use only this app now. Really because the Gmail app is so bad, I want my Gmail to push, and I would like to only have to use a single app.

    Thank you Microsoft.

    I use Outlook for my Calendar, email, and contacts, so this seemed perfect and I decided to give it a try.

    It's a very nice app, I like how the contacts, calendar, email are all in one app, quite fast too.

    I did uninstall it for a couple of minor reasons, one the alert tone is the default iOS tone and cannot be changed also the calendar only shows today and agenda views.

    To those that don't care about these two points, I highly recommend it.

    Tried it and removed it. I use exchange for work and as far as email it's fine but searching email from any period back is to painful.

    It sure does. Acompli was my main email app and it worked great.

    I've been talking to the folks at CloudMagic about a dark theme. To my knowledge, there is no email client with that option. They said something similar is in the works. I'd love an email with a dark theme.

    Been using it for about a day. I use a Google Exchange(are they still called that?) and the ability to quickly add to the calendar is AWESOME!

    I'm thinking this will become my go-to email app.

    Cheers!

    I like it a lot. And by the way, Microsoft admitted that it was exactly a copy of the old app with new branding, but they promised they would be updating the app very soon with new features.
