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.

Excellent.

I can’t believe i’m writing this about a Microsoft app, for the iPhone no less, but this is the best iOS email client i’ve ever used. I’ve used almost all of them, including Gmail extensively.

The BEST thing about this app? Focused Inbox. Outlook quickly learns who is important and who isn’t, and delivers notifications only for the “focused inbox” (unless you have it configured otherwise). Gmail has a version of this but its not as simple and clear-cut as Focused Inbox on outlook. I’d never realized how much time I’d spent paying attention to email notifications that didn’t require attention (receipts, work emails from other departments) - and how Outlook has streamlined my focus by reducing the number of notifications I receive.

Outlook for iOS is streamlined to handle multiple accounts super well, including custom notifications per account, calendar account integration (for event creation when email content includes a date or time). The notifications themselves are even better than Mail / Gmail on iOS, allowing me to archive, reply or mark as read from the banner pull-down, without ever needing to enter the app. Even the sounds are better. I’m a believer. Gold standard.

Last update puts badge on menu and settings icon?

Rating is generous for encouragement... more like 3.5 stars. Reasonably functional. No crashes problems. Lacks a lot of the functionality of other, more mature, Exchange email clients.

My wish list would be for a collapsible email folder structure. Also for a contacts screen/window for viewing and scrolling through Exchange contacts, isolated from iPad contacts, so I can keep my work and my personal contact separated. Note that I use the iPad email and contacts apps for personal stuff.

Annoyingly, after last update I see a badge (little gray dot) in the upper left on the nav (menu) icon. When I click the nav icon to open the left side nav panel, I see the same little gray dot on the settings gear at the bottom. Like bread crumbs. When I click this to open the settings panel, I now see there is an Add Account “1 new”. I click this (why do I need an add account reminder) then immediately dismiss it, close out of settings and go back to mail. The little gray badge is now gone. But when I later open Outlook, there it is again. Marketing people need to stay out of this.
