Although not too much appears different in this release, there are some major improvements in how Outlook Public Folder calendar events are processed across different time zones.
The app caches Office 365 Public Folder appointments on the local iOS file system. In previous versions the app would store the date and time in the users local time zone. If the iPhone and user changed timezones after using the app, it would display time stamps from the original timezone.
In this release, all dates are stored as Universal time. When an Office 365 Public Folder Calendar is displayed, the current timezone is properly rendered using the current timezone as an offset to the original appointment.
There were also other minor bug fixes relating to Office 365 calendars.

Times are off
The times are showing up 4hrs earlier than on my regular calendar so it thinks I have a 4:30am appointment.... please fix
Does exactly what it claims to. Fast, lightweight and cheap. Recommend checking it out.
