This app ruined my life 1/5
I tried to save an event to my phone calendar at it created a new event!!!!! I hate this app!!!! It has caused me severe pain and embarrassment.
Updates broke everything 1/5
Outlook recently deleted my account from the ipad after a period of “inactivity”, which was maybe a few days. I reconfigured everything, but the app defaulted to focused inbox and arranging emails by conversation. When I disabled both those options, the whole app broke. The whole account is gone again and the Settings button has vanished. The app is entirely inoperable.
Search function 1/5
Search function needs serious improvements. Terrible
Major Issues 1/5
Can’t get emails to sync from phone to computer, extremely slow, and the endless verification to sign is irritating and pointless.
Schedule Teams Meeting?? 4/5
By Lakewood Ranch
Was this feature removed??? I’m now only getting the Skype option. My org uses Teams and found the ability to schedule a meeting straight from outlook mobile extremely convenient.

Hello yes I am
An excellent until it started crashing constantly 4/5
Excellent in app support system, but hard to get help if the app won't open. Found a link online eventually.
My only beef was that if you have to restore your phone the account settings in outlook aren't saved/backed up. Luckily I haven't had to test that again. A pain if you have multiple accounts configured.
Great app for combining important features in one place. Love the view that shows attachments. A little buggy with elaborate email signatures.
If you have multiple email accounts name them carefully so the icons don't all look the same.

Sometimes hard to keep up with group email responses
won’t let me log into my school outlook email. extremely annoying. keeps telling me to talk to their support team which is no help because they keep telling me to do what i’ve been doing the entire time. i have updated the app, deleted it and re-downloaded several times. annoying. if it weren’t for this being my school email i WOULD NOT USE.
I’m missing assignments and interviews because outlook decides to delete messages now. So now I have to stay up and figure out how to turn off auto delete even though I never authorized that to happen anyway.
Loved the app but.. 3/5
So I am a sophomore in college and my school uses Outlook as its email. All my freshman year I loved this app but recently it won’t let me back into my email. I have contacted someone and have done everything they said but me and my friend both are unable to log in. Just sad because it was really useful to have on my phone and now I can’t get in):
Nothing Special 1/5
By Jewel Rei
Email, calendar, accepting invites... Everything it does can be done with default iphone apps. So why download it? I only downloaded this because I was hoping that it will have the option to accept invites without sending response, like the outlook desktop version. I feel bad for our secretary receiving a million emails because of default responses. Also, some people at work will send flyers from smore.com and other websites alike and this won't show it until you click the images not showing link. I uninstalled it right after exploring all features it offers. Again, nothing that can't be done with the default apps I already have on my phone. I'll download it again when features are updated.
Improved; poor mail; watch awful; juvenile 3/5
IMPROVED: The long-promised and long-awaited monthly view has been a real improvement and nudged me into actively using this app again. Good job, MS. If only my iOS calendar could be fully synced, so that I didn’t have to use two calendars, one for work and one for home. (Apple fences off this app from full iCloud integration, unless you invoke Apple’s ill-running, constipated, two-factor authentication across the entire Apple system.)
BUT, THE MAIL: Ever since the July 2017 redesign the app continues to be worse than the elegant, native iOS app; and, now that my hospital has moved from the OWA to Office 365, work mail no longer goes to the iOS app but goes here first. It’s awful.
The 2017 update degraded the purchased Acompli build to a laborious, clunky mail experience with a sliding shelf that hides needed views and adds steps.
The app needs an opening screen that gives an intuitive and quick-to-grasp overview. Toward that goal, (1) badge each mail account icon with the number of emails, rather than a useless dot; and, (2) make the default view for an account an overview rather than the Inbox so that folders are not buried several steps deep.
Finally, with that same 2017 update, the different Gmail accounts were suddenly labeled only with the Google “G,” making them indistinguishable from each other. When customer howling awakened slumbering Microsoft, the make-shift patch was mail identified by non-customizable, ugly colored circles with initials. (Don’t be fooled by the attractive picture of “Add all your accounts” under “Preview.)
AESTHETICS: Speaking of ugly, the app much needs a toggle-off switch for the unprofessional, inaccurate icons, as Google calendar offers for its likewise juvenile artwork. Who wants, for example, a molar icon for “dental surgery”; a graduation cap with tassel appearing for an “eye exam” appointment — Are you kidding me?; or, a “telephone” to appear when you’re “On-Call” at the hospital?
SUMMARY: (1) Good calendar, internal search engine and integration with Office software. (2) Problems remain from the poor 7/17 mail redesign. (3) A professional app needs to be more sleek and elegant, and less cutesy (e.g., sliding shelf; goofy icons). (4) The widget only shows the current day, so is not much help. (5) Watch app calendar non-functional.
Cannot add multiple accounts 3/5
Cannot add multiple accounts in the iOS app.This is a huge draw back.
App Freezes up 2/5
By Viggen pilot
App Freezes up at least once a day. I have to force quit the app and restart it to get it unfrozen. After an annoying amount of app updates (at least 2 a week) how is this not fixed yet?
I love my OUTLOOK 5/5
By practicing yoga
There are so much offering in Outlook it is crazy awesome. I need training to be super efficient.
Needs Delay Send button 4/5
One feature is highly demanded - “Delay Send” / “Send Later” button for new email. Otherwise is a very solid app.
Too many Quirks 3/5
Outlook has the potential to be better than apple mail, but the litany of little problems makes it really frustrating.
I love the colorful interface and icons for contacts, but my work’s IT won’t fully integrate the contacts list, and Outlook doesn’t let me assign my own pictures, or use the pictures already in my contacts list.
The Apple Watch integration works well, but I really, really hate that I can’t swipe to clear messages or swipe down to check for new ones. That’s essential!
Please continue working on this, I know Outlook will continue to improve over time.
Slow app, glitchy, and not responsive 2/5
App is constantly refreshing and takes a while to load email messages. When using split screen messages aren’t able to be read unless you resize the app screen and then move it back to split view mode. Also, when trying to move multiple emails from the same inbox into the same folder, it only moves one and then selects another email that wasn’t originally chosen.
I’ve had problems with attachments not being attached properly resulting in missed deadlines :|
Calendar issue 4/5
By Teresa Setnar
Since a recent upgrade, I can no longer respond to meeting invites from the reading pane. It always says No Response needed.
QR scan should be regular or default settings ,never heard other systems be charged monthly! So apple going down is absolutely trend!
Battery draining 1/5
This app has single handedly drained 50% of my battery in less than 12 hours while the phone is idle. I’m assuming terribly inefficient push coding.

Email Chains Don’t Work 1/5
By Dances with dots
You won’t be able to view any email chains.
Horrible things happened when implemented 2/5
By KC Chiefs fan1
My hospital system changed to 365 with no notice. After this happen the majority of my personal contacts were no longer on my iPhone but in 365! (20 years of keeping this list from device to device as I changed phones). I’m planning on leaving my hospital system (different issue) so I had to spend 9+ hours manually putting these contacts back in my phone. 9+ hours....!!!
There’s no way to share a contact with MICROSOFT 365 so I couldn’t text things to myself as an easier way to recreate my complete contact list. Also, in the 365 phone app there are no tasks from outlook. My experience with 365 hugely reinforced why I got a MAC years ago. Disgusted
Can’t sign in 1/5
Can’t sign into college acct
Working good now 4/5
Been working well since the previous update. 08/16/19
Since the last update the app doesn’t work. Ever time I open the app it automatically closes itself before I have a chance to do anything.
Great App, Needs more features 4/5
This is a great app as is expected. But, I do wish it had more capabilities like on a desktop. For example, “liking” an email with a thumbs up, setting e-mail importance, etc. If that were possible through the app, it would be PERFECT!
Outlook really sxcks. 1/5
Update almost every day with more bugs one after another, unbelievable! Just one email came in and it showed 3 in the App Logo, REALLY? It’s really getting worse and worse compared to any Mail like ~15 years ago. Pathetic.
By Outlook trash
Constantly have to resign in which means I miss email notifications. Slow. Garbage.
Can’t mark single messages in a thread as unread 2/5
When using thread view, you can’t mark individual messages as unread. The “mark unread” option marks a bunch of messages in the thread (whatever Outlook determines as being new) as unread. This is a major gap in functionality that the native iOS email app DOES support.
In addition, the search feature is terrible. There are no filters/options to just search email versus everything (mail, contacts, calendars), and there are no options to search specific fields (i.e. search inbox mail only from a specific sender or for a specific subject).
The Outlook app is more difficult for my corporate purposes than the native iOS mail app.
Notification Tones & Badges 3/5
You had this working for a few months, but now notification tones and badges are only going out to one device when in fact I have 3 devices logged into Outlook; my desktop PC, my business cell and my personal cell. PLEASE FIX so that the user is notified on ALL DEVICES!
New emails display 4/5
I’ve been using this app for several years and for the most part happy, with one exception... the red dot displaying the number of new/unread emails. It hasn’t correctly displayed my inbox for at least a year. How many updates in a year and it isn’t corrected? With the recent update it displays double of what is actually in my inbox.
Good mail and calendar functions 5/5
The mail function is easy to read and use, allowing me to clearly read all my mail. However, I wish the replies to messages were easier to find. Sometimes the replies don't show up or I have to find by trial and error which reply I need. It would be better if I could scroll through linked emails more easily.
Also, I wish there is a way to color organize my calendar so I can more easily categorize types of activities (work, birthday, holiday, chores, etc.) as the very small symbol is difficult to see and quickly separate by sight. Thank you for your great app!!!
Cambios en en diseño 5/5
La aplicación es buena pero creo que debería ser mejor,cambiar el diseño,innovar un poco más,hay una aplicación que se llama SPARK que tiene una versión bien divertida y se ve muy atractiva
Going downhill fast... 1/5
Crashing constantly. Can’t forward.
Don’t care for the format; needs features 2/5
I dislike the focused/other. I also want to have options like a reading pane, contacts, and calendar sync on the ipad version. I have those options on my iphone.
Too many Flaws 2/5
I can never view new emails when the notification comes in. I will always get a “No Internet” message even though I’m surrounded by WiFi and data. When looking for old emails in the search box I run into the same exact problem. I downloaded this app for work and I still end up having to pull out my laptop and log in that way, which defeats the whole purpose of having this app.
When will you support GIFs? 1/5
Since you guys seem to waste so much time updating useless features instead of ones users desperately need, why can't you add the ability to send GIFs to my co-workers on mobile? Life just isn't worth living without them.
Notification problem 2/5
Hi, I have a problem with the notifications, everyday I receive several emails but none of them appear in the app’s icon. I always have to open the app to check if I have new emails or not. I have checked several times the app’s settings and the phone settings as well and everything was perfect.
by the way, the “ help and support” option in the app is not working with me

Stop sync without having to delete account please 3/5
I wish there were a way to stop the app from checking for email without deleting the account and adding the account when I want to check email
Ever since the most recent iOS update, my Outlook app opens and immediately crashes. I use it for my work email so this is posing a significant problem. Please fix ASAP!!
