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.

Tons of bugs


Often can't update itself to retrieve new emails. Sometimes good emails get marked as spam and quarantined, but there is a bug that prevents the app from releasing them. A rare few times I have sent an email with the app, only to check on my laptop that the emails weren't actually sent. The most annoying is when I open an email to search for a number or something, then switch to Safari to type the number in, then try to switch back to Outlook to verify the number and the app restarts and I have to search for the email again. Real fun with flight reservations. Typical Microsoft product that works ok most of the time but has tons of little inconveniences like that.

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.
