What's New in Version 1.0.12
- Minor bug fixes
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.
Windows 8 or iOS?
I'm not sure why the OWA developers want to create an app for iOS that doesn't work like an iOS app. It uses non-standard menus for things like adding a calendar event, which sometimes don't work properly. Font size can't be changed, which leaves you with the default Windows 8 fonts that are both way too large and way too small in certain places. Functionality, not appearance, should be the focus. Currently, it fails in this respect. On a technical note, you cannot search the calendar, which is a significant issue for me. The inclusion of the "All, flagged, To me" filters at the top of email inboxes is useless, and far too large. Hide filters in a menu, as apple mail does for those that use these features.
Almost, But Not Quite
Until the iOs client synchronizes with search folders like the Outlook desktop client, it's just not really useable. Many people do not move emails into fixed folders, but instead maintain multiple search folders so they can isolate emails, while maintaining an intact inbox. The iOs application does NOT have access to those search folders (nor does the web app), which makes it a second-rate product that should only be used when necessary. When search app synchronization is added to this iOs application, it will finally be useful for someone who uses email for business.
