  5. Worthless!!!

    I have deleted and redownloaded this app 7 times on my iPhone. Now that it's finally not crashing, it's taking 15 minutes to load and I am still not able to read any of my emails. I use this for my work emails and if I don't have access to them, then I can't do my job.

  8. Logging out for multiple account users

    Overall this app is very frustrating as it is unclear and impossible to logout without uninstalling the app.

  9. Task bar, menu options, shortcuts at bottom of screen. File & People Options

    Include "files" and "people" shortcuts in the bottom stationary task bar next to the "mail, calendar, & settings" options just as it is in the Outlook app. Please.

  10. Reset

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

  12. 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…

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

  14. 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…

  15. 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.

  17. 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!

  20. 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.
