Ratings and Reviews
I have used hotmail/outlook for my email forever and have never needed to use anything else. I have used other products within a working environment but always advocated a change to outlook whenever my voice could be heard - it actually worked once with FirstGroup plc. Although it was obvs a business decision - not based on my one voice trying to coerce the local IT team.
Anyway thanks for being my constant, my kids have outlook accounts to which my husband and I email to so they will have them when the time is right, especially from my recently deceased mum which is lovely ❤️❤️
Anyway I could go on but there are no offensive words, it won’t go into your big electronic bin hopefully and maybe a proper person will read it. Bye 👋
Deletes my email
However awful Outlook is on desktop, you’re pretty much stuck with it in corporate Windows environment. So using it on mobile too kind of makes sense for convenience and consistency.
Over the last couple of years I was willing to put up with its bugs and limitations - all complicated apps inevitably have them.
However I finally bit the bullet, removed it today and switched to a separate but better apps for email, calendar, and contacts. The reason is that it yesterday (for the second time this year) deleted a year’s email. It is ridiculously easy to brush the ‘select all’ and delete icons without realising it. Before you notice, your emails are disappearing before your eyes, with the deletions being synchronised across all devices linked to your accounts. So for 2nd time this year I have wasted hours going message by message through 3 sets of recycle bins trying to work out which messages were intentionally or unintentionally deleted, and restoring accordingly. Poor for an app that is supposed to increase productivity.
The main thing wrong with this app is Microsoft’s approach to it - the interface is changed frequently and significantly, so there is a constant and boring need to re-learn how to do things.
There are any number of bugs and irritants which coyld be fixed.
The iPad app calendar takes an age to display newly entered calendar events - many minutes, which is bizarre, as newly created events appear almost instantaneously on iPhone version.
No ability to set time zone for calendar events. This facility comes and goes, as frequently as the interface is changed.
If Bing can work out the location for an event, the time zone may be set automatically, but if the location is “Mike’s office” (all the information I need to get to the event “Meeting with Mike and Jane”), then it won’t. And by the way, Jane’s office is not the same place as Mike’s office, and there are more than 30 people called either Mike or Jane in my contacts.
