Microsoft today announces a newly developed Outlook for iOS app. The app’s latest redesign is about joining the app experience to match Outlook on other platforms, especially with the focus on the Outlook brand. In fact, the new Outlook conversion provides a lot of small improvements to UX of Outlook that make the app much nicer to use than it already is.
First, the new Outlook design has a new blue box similar to the Outlooks brand. The app now features bold typography that matches the design of iOS, while the experience is consistent with Outlook with other devices.
The new Outlook experience brings some other small changes, like the new subtle animation when you swipe on an email. Or the new calendar icon that moves forward and backward as you browse your calendar.
The update introduces other features that will make managing email much quicker than before. It now shows profile pictures for all your email despatches, so you can easily track a sender in your inbox, for example. The scheduling experience for meetings has also been rebuilt, with the design now showing contextual information in a moment that will make managing all your meetings and events much easier.
Outlook for iOS update looks great, to get straight ahead. Some of these updates are likely to go to Outlook on Android as well. The good thing about the new design is that the experience looks and feels like before, but much has changed under the hood.
