  • Recent rumors talk about Microsoft getting ready to launch their popular Office suite for the most used mobile platforms – Android and iOS. While some time away before we can see if this is true or not, the software giant in Redmond, US, has launched the official Microsoft Outlook.com app for Android.

    It is no secret that Microsoft would rather concentrate its efforts on its own mobile OS then spend time and resources with development for other platforms. Still, due to the popularity of Android, and the large number of users that have adopted the OS, it is impossible for Microsoft to ignore the platform. So what other way is there to convince users that the Windows Phone platform should be their choice. Well Microsoft has launched Outlook.com for Android but has so poorly implemented it that it has quickly gathered an impressive number of negative reviews.

    The app has a pretty straight forward interface that uses elements from the previous versions of the Android OS, Gingerbread and bellow.  While with Skydrive they proved they can use the most recent design guidelines to design a very appealing interface for their app, with Outlook it’s quite the opposite. The only thing the users note about the app is that it’s working. Other then that most can’t find a use for it, due to the number of more useful alternatives and the lack of options. Let’s hope Microsoft realizes their mistake and updates the app in the near future.
