    • [notification]: enable LED to notify of new email arrival (typically BLUE for OWA)

      A feature I find very convenient on touchdown is the capability to configure the LED for NEW email arrival.
      By default SMS & GMAIL are having a WHITE led blinking.
      It could be convenient to have a BLUE (maybe configurable) notification for new OWA email.
      I am using a nexus 5

              • show number of new messages as icon overlay

                Most android communication apps show the number of new messages directly on the app icon, it would be great if OWA could do that as well.

                • It should be compatible with Android 4.0 and up and not only Android 4.4

                  Make the application work starting with Android 4.0 and up. Not all devices available in the market have Android 4.4.

                            • Enable user to change font size. If I have to pick up my reading glasses everytime I read my email I won't use the app.

                              Being over 40, I need reading glasses when I sit down to read.
                              Using a smart phone is a spontaneous action, and to have to reach for my reading glasses before I reach for my phone is far to cumbersome. I need to be able to increase the font size so I can read the emails without glasses.

                              I went to the Samsung Galaxy from the iPhone exactly because the larger screen enabled larger fonts with the ability to see more of the message on the screen. I increased the font size in the Samsung email app without a problem.

                                • Improve notification format for Android Wear watches

                                  Yeah - I have one of "those watches".
                                  Reading email notifications is one thing it does very well. However with the OWA client the notifications are badly formatted - the email subjects display about 3 characters of each email.

                                    Make the email that you're reading automatically resize to fit the screen so you don't have to scroll to the right to see the rest of it. Particularly for images.

                                        • Use PIN or password on app itself like the Apple app

                                          Use a PIN or password on app itself like Apple App instead of requiring it to simply use the phone. I don't want to enter a pin or password every time I use the phone just to make a phone call or read a text message. I don't need to use a password or PIN to use my iPad, only when I actually when I use the app to check my secure Outlook work email. It doesn't make sense to require it just to turn on the phone when I don't need to access this app.
