Microsoft releases native Outlook Web Apps for iPhone, iPad

Outlook Web App iPad

AppleInsider was first to report last year that Microsoft was working on a native version of Outlook Web App for iOS. As expected, the new application uses the same tiled "Metro" interface found on Microsoft's other platforms, such as Windows 8 and Windows Phone.

Outlook Web App for iOS requires an iPhone 4, iPad 2 or newer running iOS 6 or higher. Using OWA on iOS does not incur an additional charge for Office 365 subscribers.

Features of the application, as highlighted by Microsoft, include:

  • Organize your email quickly with Conversation View, Mark as Junk, Flag, and Categories
  • Quickly search or browse email in all folders including Outlook Favorites
  • Manage your schedule with ease
  • Schedule meetings using attendee free/busy and room finder
  • View shared calendars including delegate support
  • Use your voice to look up a contact or bring up your schedule
  • Keep business data secure
  • Remote wipe erases only your corporate data in OWA for iPad and leaves your personal data on the device alone
  • Separate passcode for OWA for iPad provides an additional layer of security

Both OWA for iPhone and OWA for iPad are 11.1-megabyte downloads.
