Thanks to Microsoft, my Apple iPhone 7 Plus keeps improving as a central hub for work email, calendar, and contact database. The latest update rolling out now adds improvements in conversation navigation and an improvement in how you switch between accounts and folders.
Even though the iPhone has its own iOS Mail client and Android devices have Gmail, I never set these up on my phones because Outlook offers a better user experience for me. Regular updates and improvements in the app, compared to long periods of time between OS-level apps, make Outlook a compelling free alternative I highly recommend you try out.
According to Microsoft, these improvements in conversations make using your email more efficient:
I can't wait to try out this latest version as I often have difficulty noticing the separation between the messages in my conversation and scrolling through to find the latest is a bit of a pain.
Right now, I have Exchange, multiple Gmail, and Outlook.com accounts setup in the Outlook app. The new account switcher looks pretty slick and is sure to prevent me from opening errant folders I always seem to tap on in the current interface.
The new Outlook for iOS and Android is rolling out now, but currently none of my devices has the new version available to test.
Microsoft's post also discusses some upcoming changes in search and after just recently using search, this is another feature that will ensure Outlook remains my primary email client on all of my devices.
