  1. Calendar Sync to Phone Calendar

    It would be nice if the OWA app could be configured to sync the outlook calendar to my phone's calendar.

    I prefer the way my phone's calendar looks and the ability it has to give me more information when in month view. (Like all day events)

    • Remove notification if the email is read on another device

      At the moment, new email notifications remain until they are opened or dismissed on the Android device.

      It would be nice if such notifications could be automatically removed if the email they relate to is read, marked as read or deleted on another device.

      • Make a widget for this app

        One of the major benefits of the Android OS is the capability of widgets. I just installed this on my Galaxy S3 and was surprised to see that it does not a widget. I will not be replacing the Android default email app with OWA until it has a widget.

        • Add Android 4.1 Support

          Microsoft could have many more downloads of OWA for Android if were built for Jelly Bean 4.1 / API Level 16. Requiring KitKat 4.4 shuts out hundreds of millions of Android users.

          According to Google:
          - 1 billion people actively use Android devices*
          - less than 14% of devices are running Android 4.4 KitKat **
          - more than 58% of devices are running 4.1 - 4.3 Jelly Bean **

          * Google I/O 2014, Sundar Pichai's keynote

            • Allow Separate Notification Control on Email & Calendar

              Many users prefer to use an integrated calendar APP, once the calendar event is sync to gmail (via 3rd party program), notification from OWA and notification from the build-in calendar APP is repeated and provided double reminders.

              • Add the ability to access shared and delegated mailboxes

                it would be great to be able to open shared mailboxes on the go like you can in either outlook or a desktop web browser.

                    • Provide functional errormessage when setting up and using invalid/wrong password

                      When you setup the account and you enter a wrong password, the app returns the errormessage it couldn't reach the server. This is wrong, it should return an errormessage indicating the password is wrong.

                            • Add notification sound for new email.

                              There are no notification sounds for a incoming mail. This makes the app useless.

                              • Add Support for ALL devices Runing Android 4.1+ ATLEAST

                                Don't bound users from using different devices running same Android version, Add support for all devices rather than filtering out device types or manufacturers.

                                Android is an Open Source project, a thousand different different types devices are running on this platform, latest research says even now more than 50+ Android users are on Jelly Bean (4.1 to 4.3), so think of them too.

                                Thanks

                                        • Delegate calendars stopped showing up

                                          Device: Samsung Galaxy S4
                                          Android: 4.4.2

                                          User has the ability to view 12 delegate's calendars. The app showed all 12 calendars (selected individually, not all 12 at once) but suddenly stopped. It now says no items in their calendars. Removing and re-adding the app did not fix it. Nothing was changed prior.
