Ratings and Reviews
Outlook for iOS just had an update, which allows displayed colored categories for your email calendars. The feature is not yet ready to be used within the app, and I recommend that you do not change the optional calendar color for an email account that uses colored categories. If you do change the optional color, like I did, you will probably have to wipe your device to make color categories display properly. I found this out when I changed the optional calendar color for one of my email accounts. Once I did this, the color for every event in that account was the same. But by doing this, my default color was changed to a color that I wanted, and when I wiped my iPad Air 3 and reinstalled Outlook for iOS, the default color stayed the same! I have two email accounts that I use colored categories with, which now work perfectly (so long as I choose the colors in the desktop version of Office) and all my email accounts have the default optional color choices from within the app just like I want them to be. It took me a week to figure everything out, but now the app is displaying just like my desktop version in Office 365 and Office 2016. Altogether I have 6 email accounts and 4 calendars all color coded and displaying just the way I like it to be.
Great app, but isolated from iOS
I really like the integration of the outlook app with Outlook on my Windows 10 PC, OWA and my Mac. The experience and functionality are very similar between platforms which make it easy for me to switch between them and still be productive.
My biggest problem with the Outlook on iOS though is that it’s completely isolated from the rest of iOS. I understand there are some limitations with this, and maybe some more so on the SDK side of things rather than Microsoft’s, but it’s a bit frustrating that when I try to make a call directly from Phone, I don’t have the option to search through my outlook contacts. Or that when I see an email address on a website that I’m not presented with an option to write that email within the Outlook App. I’m able to share the ‘mailto:...’ link to a blank email in outlook, but cannot compose an email to that email address.
The same extends for calendar. I would love to be able to see my calendar events from outlook in the calendar app, just as a kind of unifying calendar app. I know that I can setup my Office 365 account within the accounts pane in settings, but then I’m defeating the purpose of using outlook.
Updates have ruined Outlook for Apple Watch
The most recent updates have taken Outlook from the best (as in fastest and most efficient) email app for Apple Watch to quite possibly the worst. The app is incredibly slow, it sometimes takes hours for emails to update. Further, prior to the recent updates the app used to have text at the bottom of the main menu telling you either when your inbox was last updated/refreshed or that it was currently updating, allowing you to know for sure whether the emails you were viewing were in fact up to the moment. After the updates, there is no text informing you of last update, which is particularly bad when combined with how slow the app now is—at any moment that you’re looking at emails on the watch, it is virtually impossible to know if what you are seeing is up to date, or if there are ten more emails in queue that you’re not yet seeing because of the slowness of the app.
Another change for the worse: you used to be able to tap notifications of new emails and they would take you straight to that email in the outlook app. Now, you tap a notification and it takes you to the main menu of outlook, where you encounter the same issues of slowness and not knowing when the emails were last updated.
In sum, your latest series of updates have taken Outlook from being the absolute best email app for Apple Watch to now being considerably worse than Apple Mail, which itself isn’t very good. Why mess with a good thing?
