Don't like 2/5
I used to be able to attach images as files that could be selected on pc and saved. Not any longer... images sent from my through Outlook are sent as an image embedded in the message (if “embedded” is the correct word), making images difficult to work with, save, etc.
Also, the app for some reason stopped allowing me to look at earlier messages in an email string. I deleted and started using another app.
Good app- missing some calendar controls 3/5
This is a clean interface and the app works well. It is missing some settings. For example you can’t control the notifications for the calendar separate from the email notifications. If for example you want to not show on the lock screen for email but do want that for calendar notifications.
Also it seems like it is all ways refreshing in the background unlike the native mail app, which you can set to fetch.
The interface is a nice design though easy to read and the calendar shows attendees status.
Don’t waste your time 1/5
This app NEVER works, it’s always “disconnected”. It’s almost 2019 and there’s no reliable outlook app, sad!
Good when it works 3/5
Great to have access to my work email on my phone without having to go on the internet. When this app does work that is. Lately it shows a notification that there is email but when I open the app the emails don’t load, which I then have to log in on the internet to see the emails. Basically making the app fairly useless aside from the notification that I have email. I refresh the app, have deleted and reinstalled it, restarted my phone, app is up to date. Just wish it would actually work.
Wished deleting email was easier 4/5
Wished deleting emails en masse was easier.
Customer Support - Lack of! 1/5
If you’re looking to get help from customer support forget it! I had been using outlook mobile for a while and it stopped receiving and sending emails. I contacted customer support and initially received a question regarding my problem and never heard back after I answered them. I fixed the issue by completely deleting the app and reinstalling.
Same Old Poor 1/5
PRÉCIS: How can Microsoft make terrific apps like OneDrive, Word/Excel/OneNote, Edge, and Office Lens, yet fail this app so badly? The hard words come from potential squandered; squandered mostly from two design choices, one from the original build (calendar), the other from a 2017 update (mail), which likely means that neither will be changed and that the app will limp along last in a long line of otherwise excellent MS iOS apps.
MAIL: Mail remains inferior to the native iOS app.
The 7/17 awful and much-disliked update made the default mail reply “Reply to All” — as though this were a social app — thus multiplying steps for many emails, including emails with multiple recipients for the original. (User complaints has forced some improvements on the ill-conceived change.)
Continuing with “let’s make the app more laborious,” that update gave us a sliding shelf, which produces ADHD steps like this: From the All Accounts Inbox, it takes ten steps with flashing shelf to check a sub-folder in two different accounts and return to the All Accounts Inbox; or, to overview four email accounts, each with a different purpose, in order to decide which account to begin working on, it takes eight steps. It’s all so dizzying that you run for the Zofran, or for the Xanax because it’s so overwhelming.
Then, also, with that update the different Gmail accounts were suddenly labeled only with the Google “G,” making them indistinguishable from each other. When customer howling awakened Microsoft, what we got was mail identified by non-customizable colored circles with initials. It’s ugly.
Try Outlook.com through Safari or Edge for a superior mail (and, on the iPad, a far superior calendar) experience. Oh, the calendar:
CALENDAR: Nearly 10,000 users have explicitly requested — Who knows how many more are also wanting this? — a real monthly view, rather than the useless agenda/dot view that the iOS calendar already gives us; but we’re ignored. This is a most lamentable and probably uncorrectable failure embedded in the original design. (Also, even if one likes the agenda/dot format, this is a particularly poor execution, far worse than the native app and the awful and over-rated Fantastical. An example? The monthly view with dots only extends when the date is tapped, but, then, in inexplicably bad design, this extended monthly view rolls back up with a scroll through the agenda. Gosh, it’s awful.)
POSITIVES: Are there positives? Only one: Integration with Office software. That’s it.
TO SUM: I have to use the native app for mail; then switch to this app if a document needs work; then switch to Google Calendar or Calendars 5 for a real calendar, to see a pattern of meetings over the coming weeks and month.
FAIL: This app completely fails at what it intends to be — a single, integrated, professional work app; and, in that regard, it’s as distant as could be from Outlook on the desktop.
(And, as a final comment: How about a toggle-off switch for the unprofessional graphics and icons, as Google calendar offers for its artwork? Who wants, for example, a molar icon to appear on their professional calendar; or, “write something fabulous” to appear in drafts? “Fabulous” would be books, or professional journal and encyclopedia articles, not emails.)
What an Amazing Tool! 5/5
This app is fantastic! Love the see less interface and features that help me easily manage my calendar and email.
Loving Outlook 5/5
Outlook is an amazing tool to use when I am away from my laptop. It keeps me updated on what is going on with the foster families, county caseworkers, and other members who apart of the treatment team.
Crashes now 1/5
After iOS 12 the app crashes after 2 minutes of being open. Also cannot compose email or reply. Tried to contact support from the app but you guessed it, it crashes before it’s don’t collecting diagnostics.
typical crap from MS 1/5
no, task, no reminders, not useable, not outlook. what a waste of hard drive space. Would rather just use safari to log into office. MS actually wants me/you to use ANOTHER app for a to-do list. what a joke! hahaha
Don't waste your time with this crap.
Email disappearing 2/5
Some of my emails are disappearing or they just wouldn’t appear on the app (but they do appear on the computer so I know they should be there). Please fix this because I really don’t like having to go to my computer to check if I’m actually getting all my emails.
I think it’s necessary nowadays
Multiple Calendars on Mobil 4/5
By Social Woker - Bronx
I like this app an awful lot, especially the fingerprint login on mobile. The only thing I wish is to be able to see other people’s shared calendars on the mobile app.
Great app for our business
Absolute Garbage 1/5
Anyone currently rating this as 5 stars is being paid to do so. Messages disappear from drafts and the inbox. Some of them end up in the Outbox and do nothing. People need an app that actually send out emails. If you can’t get the very basic and important aspect right, then what are you even doing?
Auto BCC? 1/5
Pleas add this. A good number of your clients are professional users. We need the ability to track sent mail through a crm.
Still missing functionality despite updates 3/5
The new draft-syncing functionality doesn’t apply to my organization’s Microsoft Exchange accounts, apparently. The app is fine otherwise.
Edit: The latest update suggests we will now be able to access shared calendars. Not true for me, for whatever reason. I also can’t access public folders for my organization, which is where many shared calendars are (for booking meeting rooms).
Life Saver 5/5
By Jerry da boss
5 stars because it’s a life saver. An improvement recommended is to be able to reply to a sender after forwarding the email to another recipient.
Works perfect 5/5
Couldn’t be any better
I found outlook to be very helpful very easy to use
Thanks but no thanks. 1/5
Still cannot access group calendar!
Rules and dedicated folders 3/5
I am frustrated that the mobile app doesn’t follow the rules set up on my main account.
Calendar invitees update 4/5
Good app, but please make it possible to add people to a meeting without resending the meeting to the whole group again.
Shared calendars not an option 2/5
By Rodeo Fawn
I still have to use the web platform to check an important work calendar, so I can’t do all my mail and scheduling through this ap. Bummer!
Love the Outlook App 5/5
I use the outlook app for work emails, it is so seamless and user friendly.
Skype doesn’t setup meetings correctly 2/5
By D Kerr
I’m glad they added archiving in this update! There are some feature that are pretty good in this software, and it integrates into the familiar software.
Perhaps my largest problem right now is that Skype meetings aren’t setup correctly by outlook, even though it has that option. People had trouble calling in, and logging into the meeting from the outlook link. I have a business account, and I can from my computer’s online version. If I create two events, one from my iPad and one from my computer, the computer one says “online event” underneath it (or something like that) while the iPad version doesn’t. Perhaps that’s a clue. Both of them appear to give phone numbers and skype information at the bottom of the event.
I cannot paste all formats into calendar events.
I cannot duplicate events on any web platform or app, which means I need to type every event up individually, even though they’re all virtually the same.
Deleting an event that goes to multiple weeks will delete past events, even if I want a record of them. Only future events should be deleted.
Let’s say a skype meeting is setup via outlook, and everyone joins on that link. Then someone moves the meeting to a different time or day. Skype throws everyone out of the meeting, even though the old link still works, because of outlook.
Don’t get me started on the bugs.
Dare I say, this is reflective of Microsoft’s overall perspective, philosophy, and strategy? I feel like the company wants to make money (which I think it generally a good), but they do it by trying to cut corners or reuse software they didn’t design with deep awareness (of customer, or of the nature of the thing they were creating) in the first place.
No complaints 5/5
Usually with an app there is something that gets in the way or bugs you. I have yet to find anything in this app that makes my life more difficult. Keep up the great work!
One Drive issues 1/5
Now mail will not send when there is an attachment added from One Drive!!!
Support for Apple Watch Series 4 5/5
The app is good but could you please add support for Apple Watch Series 4? Thanks!
Ios 12 bugs 1/5
By AJ OK
So buggy on iOS 12. Notifications are sketchy, focused inbox disappears etc etc. Come on fix it!
Great app but 5/5
Please add support for the Watch Series 4!
Run from Microsoft 1/5
Every new update of their software contains bugs and wastes time. Microsoft Technical Support is an oxymoron. If you wish to waste time with broken components and deal with completely inept support personnel, then Microsoft is the way to go!!
I like the Outlook app a lot minus deleting mail 4/5
I like the outlook app a lot minus deleting mail because I wish you could swipe to delete instead of having to hold down on the piece of mail you wish to get rid of. I always end up accidentally swiping and then the mail that I don't want goes to my archive since that is what the swipe function does. Everything else is great though!
STILL can’t change # of viewable lines 1/5
STILL can not change the number of lines that will be shown in the inbox per email. I have lots of email and would like 2 lines (like EVERY other mail app is able to do, the sender and subject). I pay for premium Outlook email and I still have to use Apple Email so I don’t have to scroll through LOADS of pages to see my emails like this app. Hopefully some time soon you will fix the # of viewable lines.
Needs updating/fixing bugs now!
Good app but contact integration is awful 3/5
This app is easy to set up and reliable, but they need to work on contact integration. Looking at all of your address books is impossible.
The Best 5/5
I don’t use any other email services but Outlook..
No Support for XS Max resolution 1/5
By A Brew
It’s been almost a month.
Solid, want more features 4/5
Wish it had more of the desktop features when Scheduling meetings, which I do a lot of.
Show free/busy of invitees, conf rm availability, suggest times for meetings, better editing of invitees list, expand dist list to see its members, etc.
Otherwise solid app which never crashes on me.
Thanks for a good app.
Use it many times a day, and wish it had more.
Outlook with an iCloud account 3/5
Why must one always have an encrypted special password that is forced for iCloud accounts atleast 3x per quarter.
Missing dark mode 1/5
By N/A 1234
Mojave macOS has dark mode and iOS has some dark mode.
Outlook has no dark mode support. When will dark mode be added?
Category Colors 4/5
By Normal Zack
Please add the color category functionality to the app. I use this on the web and the desktop, but it is missing in the app. When you add the categories, I would also like the ability to sort these with the filter.
Sync problem. 5/5
Hello Administrator thanks for giving us a chance to elaborate our Problems. Sir my account doesn’t sync the recently emails it only syncs the emails of Until July I tried to change settings but all fine. Then why it’s happened. 🙏
What happened to sync? 1/5
Outlook Calendars and Contacts are not sync with iPhone anymore.
By Donzell Buckhanon
I can’t even log in anymore from the app
Awful scrolling 1/5
Whenever I try to use the magnifying lens to pinpoint specific parts of a word it spastically scrolls to the bottom of my draft. The app doesn’t even recognize that it is currently being used on my device and prompts me to “get Outlook for iOS”.
What. The. 1/5
Since I can’t give zero stars, one it is. Been using email since the early 90’s. Been using outlook in various forms since its inception. WHAT MODERN, USABLE EMAIL CLIENT sorts a thread oldest to newest, and has no option to change?? Awful, awful, awful.
Fantastic app 5/5
It’s fast and everything I want in a mobile email client.
