Microsoft Releases a New Outlook App for iOS and Android
Microsoft released the new Outlook app for iOS and Android on Thursday, January 29, 2015. The new Outlook app for iOS and Android is the result of the acquisition of the “Acompli” email app back in December 2014. Users who are familiar with the former Acompli app will find that the new Outlook app for iOS and Android retains most of the previous app’s functionality. However, its appearance compliments the look of its corresponding Outlook 2013 Office application.
