Take the Outlook Mobile App Challenge!

Yesterday I wrote about the new Outlook app for iOS/Android, calling it a truly universal inbox that aggregates emails from all of the popular webmail services – Gmail, iCloud, Yahoo!, Hotmail, and Outlook – into a single unified Inbox. I am settled in my dual Mail/Mailbox routine, so Wayne challenged me to try Microsoft Outlook only for a week. Are you in?


Here is the Outlook app challenge!

– Install the Outlook app on your phone/tablet.
– Remove mail and/or notifications from all other clients.
– Use Outlook as your primary email on phone tablet from today 1/30 until next Saturday Feb 7.
– Drop a comment below and start today.
– Report back here either at the end, or if you give up in between.
– I will write up all of the results for the following week!

So … Are you in?

As an avid gamer and gadget-junkie I was constantly asked for my opinions on new technology, which led to writing small blurbs ... and eventually becoming a reviewer many years ago. My family is my biggest priority in life, and they alternate between loving and tolerating my gaming and gadget hobbies ... but ultimately benefits from the addition of technology to our lives!

  1. So far I don’t get the love. It’s ok. Definitely far, far superior to Mail in iOS, but I am not loving it on Android right now.

    Dumb question: How do I multiselect emails? I usually do a bulk deletion of junk emails all at once and I can’t figure it out in Outlook.

  2. I had a bunch of issues getting it working right on my Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro … so I get what you’re saying. Not sure about multi-select, but maybe that is because I am used to handling things one-at-a-time in Mailbox …
