Microsoft looks forward to expand Outlook's user base to iOS and Android devices as well now. The company on Thursday released the new Outlook app for both iOS and Android platforms. After acquiring Acompli for about $200 million last December, it used Acompli's app to base the Outlook app for mobile platforms. Acompli had built an app for manage emails from multiple email clients and had good user engagement. The new Outlook app requires iOS 8.0+ or Android 4.0+. The app neatly categorizes emails by its importance so that you can focus on what's important at the moment. It supports all major email clients like Microsoft Exchange, Office 365, Outlook.com, Gmail, Apple iCloud and Yahoo! Mail. It also efficiently manages important events/meetings. You can even efficiently share and access your files stored in the cloud from Dropbox, Box, Google Drive, OneDrive etc seamlessly. Support for the older, web based Outlook app for mobile devices will slowly fade out as the new one gets better and better.
