Microsoft Outlook major update brings important new features, improvements
The iOS version of Outlook has just been update with a number of important new features and improvements, which are meant to streamline the app's integration with Apple's mobile operating system.

Among the many improvements included in the update, there are some made for the display of emails with a very small font, which is suppose to make them more easily readable.

Lots of search improvements have been made too, so users can now make searches based on conversation instead of individual results. Thanks to the new enhancements to the search system, there will be less results per query, but much higher accuracy.

Furthermore, Microsoft confirmed it has added Passbook files support, which enables the availability of into from boarding passed directly on the inbox.

Last but not least, the newest update allows users to create and edit recurring events directly from the Calendar. Keep in mind though that an Office 365 subscription is required for this feature to work.

At least one of the new improvements included in this update is available on Android devices since December: the ability to create and edit recurring event directly from the Calendar.

Wow I never noticed that before. That's a feature I thought for sure would be there.

Do they allow for copyying text from emails consistently? That's one of my biggest beefs with it. It works sometimes, but not always, and when I want to say copy a tracking number from an email many times I cannot.

I am disappointing... when will these companies realize that we need an email client and not an email assistant!? The MS Office Outlook desktop type of application, not this one, and definatelly not Google Inbox LOL

I we setup my Outlook account on Android as a exchange service and i have more functionality than this app. I couldn't save a contact with Outlook app so i could see it on other devices or Outlook web app and also other small things. For me this app is still in very beta when i compare real outlook functionality and what this app offers. Great app is also nine email but cost something more but is excellent.
