Ratings and Reviews
Better than other interfaces to Exchange
Program works pretty well and does what it is designed for most of the time. A lot of previously bugs have been worked out. I use this for a quick substitute to access my company email without having to use the full blown computer. I like how the calendar and email are combined similar to the full blown Outlook. This makes appointments and meeting request functionality better than using separate apps.
This is a bit harder to work with than the desktop version, but it is good for quick access to email on the iPad. Used with Office 365, this provides a lot of good functionality where lots of productivity can be accomplished.
I would rather use the standard email programs for the iPhone, but I also don't expect full functionality with the iPhone apps. This provides functionality for the iPad better than the standard iOS interface.
Tons of bugs
Often can't update itself to retrieve new emails. Sometimes good emails get marked as spam and quarantined, but there is a bug that prevents the app from releasing them. A rare few times I have sent an email with the app, only to check on my laptop that the emails weren't actually sent. The most annoying is when I open an email to search for a number or something, then switch to Safari to type the number in, then try to switch back to Outlook to verify the number and the app restarts and I have to search for the email again. Real fun with flight reservations. Typical Microsoft product that works ok most of the time but has tons of little inconveniences like that.
OWA is not loading my Exchange account
OWA is refusing to load my account telling me to contact my account administrator. Microsoft for small business owners who use Exchange Online, you need to get rid of that stupid statement, it is akin to when windows would flash a message saying you performed an illegal operation when all you were doing was trying to save a file. Microsoft needs to stop thinking like software engineers and think like end users.
Having said that, I do not like using the iOS Mail app on my iPad, I prefer to use OWA. Clearly, if I can access my Exchange account through iOS Mail nothing is wrong with it and something is wrong with OWA. Please fix the app and make it recognize my credentials.
