  1. Emoticons!!

    Who thought that emoticons replacing the text 'areas' was a good idea?

    The app is now almost useless as they are not intuitive, and any office familiarity has gone.

    For the biggest software company there is you have some stupid ideas. Please revert to the old version, or offer a switch.

  2. Why are there emojis?

    All the buttons are now emojis. It wouldn't be an issue if the emojis made sense to be what they took the place of. "Search" is a gas pump. "Compose" is a man with a mustache. "Refresh" is a diamond ring. "Send" is a clock. Why did they change from the simple pictures they were before? It's confusing and looks silly.

  3. What is up with the icons?

    I wish I could post a photo. I open OWA and the folders button is now a golf course. The "more options" button is not a cup of coffee. The app is absolutely impossible to navigate. Why did this happen?

  5. Full of bugs!

    So many bugs on this app, particularly since iOS8. Menus almost greyed out to the point they cannot be read. Invisible text until the screen is refreshed. No notifications (this has always been the case but it is still very frustrating). MS needs to release an update as it has not been refreshed since April.

  8. OWA for iPhone ReminderDialog_MessageBody and more

    The OWA for iPhone app shows variable names instead of content. For instance ReminderDialogMessageBody in a calendar reminder message and SplashScreenMessagesStartingAppName when the app starts. Please fix asap. I run ios 8 on iPhone 5 with the latest app version.

  9. Can't listen to emailed voicemail .wav files using OWA for iPhone

    Voicemail Messages received in my email inbox as .wav files are not able to be played back.

    Before moving to OWA for iPhone, I could select the attachment and it would playback the voicemail message using iTunes. No problems.

    Since changing to OWA for iPhone I can't associate or open with any software to actually listen to my messages. Please advise. This is so frustrating.

  12. Frustrating

    My work makes us change our password every 60 days. There's no option to update password in the options/setting on the app. So once I've changed password from laptop/office PC it means my owa app is not using correct password any more so now I can't send emails from the account.

  16. Bug with iOS8/ iPhone 6

    There seems to be a bug with iOS8/ iPhone 6 when typing emails. Some of the text will sometimes 'disappear' (appear as white space where words should be) in the last line when typing and can only be seen if you minimise the keyboard.

  17. An email that won't go away only on this app.

    I keep getting the same read email in my Inbox from Facebook saying that "Jody Lauren poked me". I tried hundreds of times to delete it, but it comes back when I come back to this app.

  19. Can only type so much before message cuts off.

    Can only type so much before message cuts off. Letters disappear and message quits functioning eg. Can't send Candi delete or backspace without closing OWA and restarting.
