Microsoft wants everyone to be as productive as possible regardless of which platform they're using. That's why the company has such good support for iOS and Android devices along with its own Windows ecosystem. Outlook for iOS is an example of an app that's supported on alternate platforms at least as well as Microsoft's own, and today it got a nice update with some new features.
Here's everything that's new in Outlook for iOS version 2.6.2:
Tis' the season to be productive. Or so we think. For this holiday release, we're happy to share the following updates on the app:
- You can now create and edit recurring events straight from the app. E.g "New Year's Eve Party" every December 31st. As easy as it sounds.
- We've improved the way emails with very small font are displayed in the app. They should now be much more readable. Right in time to read everyone else's New Year resolutions.
- We now display search results by conversation rather than as individual results. This means that if you search for "Holidays", we'll show you that very long family thread about what to have for dinner as just one result (compared to the 23 different results we would show previously).
- Support for Passbook files is now available. Check out your flight details back home or your ticket for the office party right from your inbox.
Enjoy the holidays, we'll see you again in January with more of our own New Year's resolutions, new features and improvements.
