"Bye Hotmail, hello Outlook.com"

Reviewed by / Feb 03, 2014

Outlook.com is the official Android app of one of the most popular e-mail providers

Recently, Hotmail users have been prompted to upgrade to Outlook.com since Microsoft decided to unify both e-mailing service for all platforms. Thus, as it happened to the web version, Hotmail Android app isn't working anymore. Instead, Outlook.com is ready to provide an enhanced service in a triple way: simplicity, layout and smoothness.

Those are, from my humble point of view, the added-values of Outlook.com. Actually, Hotmail app was sober and ugly. Microsoft didn't dedicated too many resources to its development. However, Outlook.com feels mobile native. First, it is set in a intuitive and good-looking layout, second, main actions (read, reply, forward, compose, delete) can be performed easily, in a few tap and, finally, the app runs smoothly. No lag, no force-closes, an overall good response.

Only one catch must be mentioned: it should keep focusing on mobile native management. In other words, gestures should be added to carry out main actions, as Mailbox does: drag/swipe to delete, archive or composed e-mails, for example.

Highly recommended.

    I'm giving it minus one star for the fact that emails are zoomed in too much and I cannot change that. Minus another star for the fact that it only loads 100 Kb in the background. Other than that I enjoy the interface and the new colors schemes I can choose.

    1-please reduce battery drain 2-add combined inbox 3-please allow sync draft folder as i can continue writing unfinished emails. 4-improve searching for content and even undisplayed email.
