Outlook is a free email app that helps you get more done from anywhere with one unified view of your email, calendar, contacts, and attachments. Outlook automatically surfaces your most important messages – across all your email accounts. Swipe to quickly delete, archive, or schedule messages you want to handle later. Easily view your calendar, share available times, and schedule meetings. And attach files from your email, OneDrive, or Dropbox with just a few taps.
Outlook works with Microsoft Exchange, Office 365, Outlook.com, iCloud, Gmail, and Yahoo Mail.

* Localization improvements
First let me say that I'm very impressed with how quickly the Outlook application for iOS has progressed. My only complaint right now is that I have not seen a confirmation of feature parity between the Outlook app and the OWA app. I think once the Outlook app for iOS can fully supplant the OWA app then the Outlook app will truly become a much better solution for anyone who accesses either a Microsoft account or any sort of Exchange account.
This app really should become the method for accessing any Office 365 account in the future. To that end Microsoft needs to do a better job and needs to remove the now deprecated applications from the Apple App Store. Fore instance they need to remove the old OWA app as well as the separate OneDrive for Enterprise app.
For those that are having problems figuring out how to select multiple emails in a folder or inbox, I had the same issue and once I read the help for this application I realized that you first have to tap and hold one of the messages for a couple seconds. Once you do this the mode changes and allows you to select multiple documents for moving to another folder deleting or other such actions.
Truly there is not much that this Outlook app is missing. There is one remaining components as far as access to cloud storage that needs to be addressed. The other Microsoft Office applications for iOS recently added support for iCloud Drive. This Outlook application needs to do the same.
E-mails Missing / Contacts
I have a lot of sub folders under my inbox in my hotmail account where I filter and save emails for future reference. Recently I noticed my folders are empty and display no messages even though messages exist. I was told by support that the app only syncs one month of messages to allow advanced features such as search, files, calendar files and people. While I appreciate ADVANCED features, taking away a feature to display all my emails is not an ADVANCED feature. I save these emails for a reason, so I can reference them at a later date. Not allowing me to do so makes this app useless to me. I'm kind of surprised no one else has reported this with great frequency, maybe no one has emails older then one month in their hotmail account lol. Please consider maybe adding a user setting to allow us to see all our emails even if it at the expense of losing some advance features. This lack of ability to display all mails is huge for me.
It would also be nice if the people icon linked to your contact list. Seems odd that it doesn't.
Could get better… much better.
My main complaint is that the actions are for all your email accounts. We should be able to customise, the swipe actions PER ACCOUNT, and GLOBALLY, just like you are allowing with email signatures. For example, GMail has an archive feature, but my I don’t want to archive my mail in Yahoo! or Outlook. Right now I do not have the choice, it’s either one or the other. The second complaint I have is contact searching, I should be able to see my contacts, as they are in the contacts app, and be able to find related emails through that. Right now it feels clunky when I try to do this, and with mixed results. Other than these 2 complaints, it is quite an improvement to the default IOS mail app.
EDIT: It looks like this is possible in the screenshots but alas I have not been able to replicate the functionality.
