iPhone X support or any update?? 2/5
Hi, It's been a while since this app had an update. Would like to see this app become more useful daily driver. Will this app ever going get an update??
By thats just awful
Worst email app I have ever used.
Fonts too small 3/5
Gets me connected to my corporate office 365 mailbox, but on an iPhone 6 s, I can barely read. Wish there was an option to increase the font as well as color code and set priorities.
S/MIME Support - Not 1/5

No support for encryption under IOS 11.x.
Would love for OWA to be seen on Iwatch
A big step backward 1/5
By Cadillac Bob
If you have an IPhone, OWA is a bummer. You lose Mail interactivity and your contacts from Outlook no longer can be fully accessed. Microsoft still believes it can win a fight with Apple. Now I have to open two APPS to read emails: Mail and OWA. Going backward.

I can't stand this app. It has constant issues and never syncs my emails correctly. It's buggy and I wish I could just get this off my phone.
One big shortcoming 1/5
Needs to work in landscape mode. iPhone.
STILL Too Many Bugs... 1/5
Any emails I “read” in the app do not properly update/translate to the online or desktop versions of 365 for Business. Same with deleted emails. Instead of being moved to my trash, they will be back in my inbox showing “unread”.
Sometimes when I select to open an email on the app, it actually opens the email; other times it will go to a different screen that is blank and stays blank until I close the app, reopen it and try again.
There’s a “+” on the calendar screen for me to add meetings, etc. But no matter how many times I select that function, I can never add anything to my calendar from the OWA app.
I have notifications and alerts turned “on” in my phone settings. But I never receive a single notification of a new email, nor a calendar alert for an upcoming meeting.
This app is riddled with bugs that all need to be addressed.
Not good 1/5
By Fany Fany Dani
Keeps crashing on me
Doesn't update automatically. 1/5
Massive glitches updating won't fix with several uninstalls & reinstalls. How much money does MS rake in, they can't keep email app working? Happened several times. Over 800 people complaining on forum for days with NO WAY to get support....seriously??!
Fix it 1/5
I’ve had no problems until a couple weeks ago. Now all it says is updating. It’s not even updating. I can no longer receive my emails.
Worst app on my iPhone 1/5
The phrase "Setting up the app to work offline" haunts my dreams.
In app updates 1/5
Microsoft needs to update the app itself and let the App Store update instead of this in app update stuff. The app hardly works because of this.
The current version of this app has been “downloading an app update” for over a week and will show that I have new mail, but won’t let me open anything. I have tried deleting and re-downloading this app but nothing works. Please fix!!

This app is garbage...
It is broke 1/5
Continually tries to download an update but fails.
Doesn’t work 1/5
By Dont Take It Personal
Can’t get it to refresh or show me attached emails
Stopped working 1/5
Downloading an update and stopped working. RIP
Fine, when it works 1/5
It’s been several days since it stopped working and started to display the message that the app is downloading an update that will take a few minutes to download. When it works it’s perfectly fine to use to keep up to date with work email. It’s completely useless otherwise. If I didn’t need it for work, I’d never use it. The calendar feature is frustrating. There are many features that just don’t work.
Won’t update.. 1/5
By Recent update complete failure
Says the app needs to update but it won’t update. Tried removing and readding with no luck.. can’t read any messages now get an error message each time.
Crashes often. I have to delete the app and reinstall many times so I can receive email.
It was working great at first... Then it started saying I needed to “refresh” the application to update it. This update has been going on for days now...
To the developers, please read! 1/5
By Disastifed Customer
I use this app for my work at Ball State University. The app does NOT work on iPhones!!! It says “needs to update, it will take a few minutes.” Later it says, “refresh,” but it never updates and does not allow me to look at my mail. Please fix this so I can use the app on my phone again!
Updating app 1/5
Periodically I can’t access my mail and just get a message saying “Downloading an app update. This may take a few minutes.” During this time, which can last a week, I’m unable to read mail or see calendar appointments.
With this type of horrible internal update process, how is this app even allows in the App Store?!?
Best of the worse 3/5
I have not found a client that works well with O366. However, out of all of them, this is by far the best. It has some idiosyncrasies, but at least it is stable.
Downloading an app update stuck 1/5
Please fix the app. It's stuck in "Downloading an app update. This may take a few minutes." They message keeps cycling and the app is rendered useless since I can't check any of my Outlook mailboxes.
Embarrassingly bad 1/5
No way to make it check for new mail -now-. Can't monitor any folder but Inbox to get notifications of new mail. Doesn't update item counts on the folder tree. Doesn't remember the last folder you were browsing, goes to Inbox when you return to the app.
Makes you wait when it is -downloading- an app update. I should never have to wait to access my data. App update downloads should happen in the background.
Worst of all: Nags you to review it. And if it's been a while since you've reviewed it, nags you to update your review.
It's a steaming pile but it's required by my company that I use it.
Embarrassing for a company with as much talent as Microsoft, but they're way too big to care.
"Downloading an app update. This may take a while" 1/5
Ever since this started to appear ("Downloading an app update"), only my email titles show up but none of it would open. Instead an error message appears... EVERYTIME. I even deleted and redownload the app and it doesn't do anything - still download God knows what. Please get your developers to do a better job.
This app is way overdue for an effective update. It is annoying to have to keep reinstalling it after it crashes. Please!
Terrible App 1/5
Don’t count on this in an emergency if you don’t have your laptop!!! Keeps doing “in app updates” at the worst times. Why the update doesn’t happen through the App Store is beyond me. Slower than death as well... MS just doesn’t care about any of their products anymore...
Consistently Bad 1/5
By Still Pimpin
Functions work sometimes, updates are a multiple day process, unable to manage the app independently. Turrible
Great when it works, but updates a pain 2/5
The majority of the time, this works pretty well, but God help you when it needs to update. You’ll open your inbox, see a new email, but not be able to open it because it needs “a few minutes” to update. Presumably, you have to sit there, keeping your phone awake the whole time for said update. Wasted a solid five minutes on this today at one point and got nowhere.
Mixed bag 3/5
The integration with desktop /web is seamless if a folder is open. But if a folder isn’t opened, it doesn’t sync. And when you do open it, it can take a long time to update and sync—not good when on the road.
Biggest issue is the search function is either buggy or doesn’t work at all.
Great App when it works 1/5
Initially I loved this app, it was the answer to get work email on my phone while traveling. In Mid July the app started to get spotty with the constant downloading app updates. When this happens you can see you have new mail in the mail tab, but you cannot read it when you open it. This renders the app useless, to correct this issue you have to uninstall the app for 24 hours and then re-download it. After that it will work for another month. If you have another option I recommend you stay away from the OWA iPhone!
Stuck downloading an app update 1/5
App says it’s Downloading an app update for 3 days now. Can’t use or read emails. This is an on and off issue with this app over the past several years.
App doesn't work at all 1/5
This is really frustrating because it's the only way for me to access my work email via my phone.
Functional, but laggy, confusing and unstable 3/5
The visual metaphor of the app appears to be Windows mobile. Or maybe Windows 10. Hard to read - variations of one shade of blue - and iconography that is unintuitive with no help context. Click and be surprised!
Responsiveness varies and can be unusable at times. When it's not, the app allows you to read and respond to email and look at your calendar. Better integration with Exchange bs Apple Mail and Calendar but I still prefer the latter.
I have my notifications turned on, but badges, sound and notification does not work. Other than that, I like that app.
I'm happy with this app. Does what I need.
Use regular outlook if you can 1/5
Where to begin? Notifications don't work, syncing doesn't get all emails, UI is buggy, requires unlocking almost every single time even if I just opened it a minute before, gets stuck downloading updates for days at a time and won't show emails, gets stuck saying that it's seeing up for offline mode for days at a time. I wouldn't use it at all, but I don't have a choice, as regular outlook doesn't work with my work email.
Useful, well organized app 5/5
I keep all of my calendar events and email in this app and it gets me through. Highly recommended.
It is okay 3/5
They app is okay, I have no complaints except for the fact that I wish it would load and be more consistent- it often doesn't give me notifications that new mail has come into my inbox.
A buggy nightmare 1/5
New mail doesn’t trigger notifications hardly ever. I’ll delete emails and they’ll still be in my inbox saying they’re unread until I kill and re open the app. There’s a host of other annoyances this app has as well. It hasn’t been updated in forever, so I feel as though the developers don’t care or have more important things to work on.
Very good app 4/5
I like this so better than outlook mobile for keeping my work email separate from my personal accounts. Only issue I've had is that the so kept failing to prompt for my password after I updated it. Minor bug keeps it at 4 stars, since its happened for the last few password updates.
Worked great, no 2FA support 1/5
My company recently rolled out 2 factor authentication via Duo Mobile and killed this app.
Time to update, Microsoft. The app doesn’t even work with your OWN 2FA solution.
Great app, but no notifications 4/5
Great app had no issues other than I do not get any notifications even with the notifications turned on.
Password change? 2/5
By David Lari
Unlike every other app that has a login, there is no way to actually logout and log in again. Since I just updated my password on my 365 account, OWA won’t connect and doesn’t bother to ask for a password. Other than the fact it totally doesn’t work without a correct password, it is a pretty nice app.
