The New Outlook App May Make You Say Bye to Gmail

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 taken a dip into the mix with its own app and this one is a game changer. Seriously, we’re ready to add this to our iPhone homepage.

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


The productivity possibilities in this app you’re used to seeing on your desktop might actually get you to wrangle your inbox(es) more efficiently. All you have to do is swipe 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 also makes scheduling easier; with the built-in calendar you’re 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 the right messages, people and files will be a smooth task even if you don’t have a double shot of espresso to help you pound through hundreds of unread messages.

Microsoft Outlook is now available for iOS + Android 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.

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
