Not going to make a habit of pulling info directly off other sites, but this is an exception as a ‘news’ post as it involves iPad and iPhone which I’m sure many of you lovely people have.
I’ve had the pleasure of installing this on an iPad this morning and its extremely user friendly. So If you have an Office 365 subscription, get this app! 🙂
Extract from the Office 365 Microsoft Blog –
Steve Chew is a senior product marketing manager in the Exchange technical marketing team focused on Outlook and Outlook Web App.
Today, we are excited to announce the availability of OWA for iPhone and OWA for iPad, which provide even more value to organizations on any Office 365 subscription that includes Exchange Online. OWA for iPhone and OWA for iPad are mobile apps that offer the same email, calendar and contact functionality you get in Outlook Web App on the browser, but with additional capabilities that are only possible through native integration of the app with mobile devices.
Our goal is to help our customers remain productive anytime, anywhere. This includes providing a great email experience on smartphones and tablets. Windows Phone 8 comes with a top-notch native email client in Outlook Mobile, and we offer Exchange ActiveSync (EAS), which is the de-facto industry standard for accessing Exchange email on mobile devices. In order to better support many of our customers who use their iPhones and iPads for work, we are introducing OWA for iPhone and OWA for iPad, which bring a native Outlook Web App experience to iOS devices!
OWA for iPhone and OWA for iPad can be installed directly from the Apple App Store. A subscription to Office 365 that includes the latest update of Exchange Online is required to use the app.1 If you aren’t already an Office 365 subscriber, you can visit www.office.com to learn more and sign up.
