  1. Reset

    The app makes me reset it every time I try to open my email. It's super frustrating.

      • Improved screanreader support for VoiceOver users

        I am totally blind and use VoiceOver, Apple's built-in screanreading software to read the screen on my iPhone and iPod Touch. Having done a bit of testing, , I've noticed that most of the buttons/icons in OWA are labelled with Emoji symbols, which is a clever idea since VoiceOver recognizes Emojis. Although VoiceOver tells the blind and visually impaired user what the Emoji symbols are (i.e. The 4-leaf clover, the clock, the airplane etc.), there is no indication as to what each symbol does in the app. It would help if there was a user guide or a help section…

        • Touch ID

          It would be great if this app made use of the Touch ID feature.

          • Move to folders!

            I lost ability to be able to move emails into folders ! Now the quick actions swipe right le left let's me choose only to: mark as read or unread, delete, archive, pin, flag or nothing. I loved that I used to be able to swipe and a bar of options 3 or 4 appeared (which I could customize to the actions that I personally tended to use more) and then CHOOSE from my swipe different actions - one of them being, and one that I absolutely loved, the ability to move to folders. I'm BIG on that as its…

            • UI

              Don't port Windows' UI into an app, the app is extremely clunky and slow feeling. The whole thing feels "unnatural", I know you would like to keep your UI consistent but try to follow the Office Suite apps, that design is heaven. STEAL IT from your buddies next door.

              • An important Idea

                You have got to make us able to to add more than one email account in the app.
                I need to save both accounts and check them without any problems.

                • Contuinially "setting app up to work offline"

                  Honestly I am a little confused why this app is continually, "updating" itself to work offline, even though it "updates" every time I open the app. It takes 5-7 minutes and often times my screen times out and I reopen the app and it will still prompt the update. Frankly I'm about ready to delete the app because of the inconvenience that's come with it. It's annoying, will not stop updating and is becoming more trouble than it's worth.

                  Is it just my phone? Or is this typical?

                  Feeling frustrated!

                      • App not working since last update!

                        Incoming and outgoing stopped updating since the date of my last update, 12/3/15. Please help!

                        The App asked me to sign in again about ten times. I re-entered my password as primped but my messages are still invisible since my most recent update.

                        • Doesn't work

                          I checked my email this morning and had 10 or so new emails. When I checked back later they were gone despite the notification saying "this folder is up to date". The sync really lets the app down massively.

                                    Having a refresh button or some way to do (like pulling the screen down) it easily would make the app better.

                                      • Constantly disconnecting....

                                        Keeps disconnecting and not loading new mails yet the unread email count on iPhone home screen keeps going up so must be connected?
