Email messaging apps are popping up everywhere (Peerio) + being revitalized for better use (Inbox by Gmail) to become the leader in productivity. Now Microsoft has just聽taken a dip into the mix with its own app and this one is聽a game changer. Seriously, we鈥檙e ready to add this to our iPhone homepage.


Microsoft鈥檚 just-released Outlook app聽does so much more than simply help you regain control of 聽your overflowing inbox.聽Filled with features for your inbox, calendar, contacts and attachments, this app is ideal聽for smartphone multitaskers 鈥 so鈥 that鈥檚 everybody, right?


The productivity possibilities in this app you鈥檙e used to seeing on your desktop might actually get you to wrangle your inbox(es)聽more efficiently.聽All you have to do is聽swipe聽to delete, archive or schedule emails to ping back at a later time (a lot like Mailbox and other applications that want to help you reach Inbox Zero Nirvana). Outlook聽also makes scheduling easier; with the built-in calendar you鈥檙e quickly able to find times for meetings from an email. Viewing and sending attachments are made simple also, no matter the size.

Who knows, maybe now finding聽the right messages, people and files will be a smooth task even if you don鈥檛 have a double shot of espresso to help you pound through hundreds of unread messages.

Microsoft Outlook is now available for聽iOS聽+ Android聽devices. Along with this news, the full Microsoft Office is also available on Android after being in preview mode for a while. So much Microsoft, so little time.
