The Focused function is awesome!
I have to admit that I’m a Apple fan. I use every Apple default apps except for replacing the Apple iOS Mail app wilt Outlook. Trust me, once you turn the focused mail function on, you will never go back! It picks the important emails for you and it is surprisingly accurate! It gets better and better after you train it.
The only problem I have with Outlook app is that it sometimes loses the connection with one/some of my email accounts and forces me to sign in again. But even I am sure I put the correct ID/password it still does’t let me log in. And there is no way to skip this step even my other accounts are working fine. I have to either wait for it to be fixed or remove that account. It is really annoying because then I will need to add that account back Outlook again…
Well-balanced and reliable email app
Outlook performs very well at the many different tasks that I use it for: Task lists, routine messages, sending attachments or links to online content, meetings & appointments, recording quick notes on work or hobby ideas, keeping in touch with friends and relatives who don't get social networks, home automation control, flight or movie reservations & tickets, agnostic device support, so much more. Only one email client, really, is good at all of these, and offers nuanced, adaptive spell checking. That app is Microsoft Outlook. A few people hate it for some particular reason, and they have that right. I love it for being just good enough at everything, in a delicate functional balance. No, I do not work for Microsoft, but I believe they are trustworthy.
I first came to Outlook after learning about the upcoming discontinuation of Mailbox, which I had come to love for its "swipe to sort" features including scheduling responses for later. I also was underwhelmed with the native iOS mail app (hear that, Apple!) and thought I would give Outlook a try.
I was surprised to find the Focused/Other filtering of my inbox to be on point and simple than similar approaches elsewhere, including my experiences with GMail's smart inbox filters.
I also found the integrated calendar to be nimble, upending my expectations that its inclusion would bloat the app. Its integration with suggesting meeting times has proven incredibly useful in my daily use.
But I write this review thanks to my experience with Outlook support. I got immediately through to a real person and the bug I found is fixed and being addressed in the next update. Contrary to navigating endless phone trees or filling out generic forms, this experience made me feel like there is a genuine user-developer relationship and made me feel that in a small way I can help make the product better. That's the sort of thing that will make me a loyal user for time to come. Bravo!
