  3. View calendar at launch

    I would like to use this app primarily as a calendar. It would be great to have the option to open the calendar directly, or at least see the same view as the last time I opened the app.

  4. Slowness

    It is an eternal wait if you have 3G or even 4G and you use OWA, whereas with the native email client it's about 10 times faster....
    Why?
    Can we not have the same speed?
    It's such a shame because OWA has many other Outlook like features such as "out of office" etc...

  6. bug displaying inbox

    I am running the ipad OWA app, downloaded from the apple App Store a few days ago, on an ipad 3 (air) running IOS 7.1. The list of emails in the Inbox in the app when the "All" option is selected is missing most of the emails. If I start up the web client in Safari then I can correctly see all the emails, so I know they are there. Also, if I switch to "Unread" then the unread ones appear correctly, and if I search for a word which appears in some of the invisible messages then these appear…

  7. Current selection and Unread identification is not easy in this UI

    I have no idea how such a design could even pass UX design when there is no way of knowing which email is selected on the left pane whose preview is shown on right. Also, the unread emails are not obviously highlighted.

    I'm just going back to default IOS Mail. Sorry OWA. You failed.

  10. OWA for IPad should be designed like the IPad native App

    Current OWA for IPad is a good product, eventhough it is painfully slow...!
    To correct that nagging issue, it should give the same experience as the native mail app in the IPad...

  13. Sign Out Button

    For security reasons, I would like an easily accessible sign out button. This seems an obvious feature to include, but does not appear to be available.

  17. Can't select text in replies or forwards

    On iPad it seems that MS decided you shouldn't be able to select, modify, or remove the text of a thread you are replying to. Nothing below your signature is selectable. Useless.
