  5. 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?

  6. 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.

  7. Allow users or at least Enterprises to decide whether pass code is required.

    Plus the passcode timeout function does not currently work properly on iOS 8, iPhone 5.

  9. Bug: OWA switches to an invisible font

    So, sometimes OWA switches to an invisible font while editing the message. Very frustrating, and maybe dangerous. Also, an email app that cannot compose emails?

  10. Notes in the event. iOS 8.1

    When creating event and adding notes OWA is typing in invisible text. The text becomes visible only when you tap anywhere out of Notes field...

    The app crashes way too often on iOS 8. It takes several tries including restart to even open app sometimes.

  12. Daily password expiration

    The iPad OWA makes me change my mobile password (which is different to the outlook password for my office email) every single day. Please fix.
    Also, the app randomly bumps me back out to the sign in page.

  13. This app is horrible

    Horrible and cluttered interface
    Doesn't show ANY notifications
    Takes so long to load or do anything...
    ...and so much more.
    I hate that I have to have this app for my college web mail. If I didn't have I have it, I would immediately uninstall.

  14. Is it supposed to not open e-mail?

    For the last couple of hrs I can't open e-mail? I can see them. I just can't open them. Is this a new security feature?

  15. Mail Sync Non-Functional

    The last time OWA synced with the mail server was September 2014! I have been unable to find ANY mechanism to generate a sync and check my mail. Hello! I haven't been able to use OWA to get to my email for SIX MONTHS! This is inexcusable. Obviously I'm going to have to start using an email program that actually works.

  18. Separate Operating System in DeviceUserAgent Description

    Exchange 2013 Active Sync uses the name Outlook-iOS-Android/1.0 as the DeviceUserAgent to describe the app. The app will force full disk encryption on any device if it is configured in Active Sync. Due to the ongoing encryption issues with Android, it would be great if the description would list it as Outlook-iOS/1.0 or Outlook-Android/1.0 then we can quarantine or white list based on that description.

  19. Don't encode hashes in links, let the developer do that

    If I get sent a link with a hash in it, it is encoded by this app

    site.com/#/some/more

    Is an example of a modern JS application url, when outlook for iPad changes it to

    site.com/%23/some/more

    It is not the same url, and will probably break the app

    Please fix this

  20. Constant crashing

    The app won't stay open for long and only works right every now and then. I can't send emails or respond to people because it crashes every time. Really defeats the apps purpose
