  1. Buttons

    Make the buttons more obvious. Ie. Inbox folder expand triangle > it's hard to click without going in the parent folder.

  2. What the **** are these little pictures?

    I can't figure out how to do anything. I have to guess at 5 buttons before I can find the right one to send an email. A cloud means send?? A train means search? What idiot picked these icons?

  3. Keyboard capitalization

    Every time I leave the app and come back the shift key is pressed. That results in several capitalized words in the middle of sentences if I need to leave the app to look up something to finish writing an email. Please disable automatic capitalization when the app is open.

  4. Well...

    I don't care how you fix it, but it needs to be fixed -it always "setting up" to "work offline". Like, it's ALWAYS doing this! It's really annoying.

  5. Smoother operation on iPhone 4S

    It would be ideal to have smoother operation on the iPhone 4S. There is a lot of lag and it is frustrating to use.

  6. It needs the ability to manage device access on a per device level and not a per mailbox level.

    The OWA is a great tool and is a perfect alternative for the native mail client. However, there needs to be security work on this app. There should be the ability to allow or deny access to OWA on a device level not just mailbox level. This should be possible since I can see each OWA instant in the phone portion of a user's mailbox and this is broken out by device. This is a large issue for any corporation trying to manage email access to devices. Just turning off the ability for all devices is not the granularity that…

  8. My linked outlook account requires frequent password changes.

    There is no way to change password in OWA. I must uninstall then reinstall with the new password.

  10. Disaster after update !!!!

    Guys come on !!! Since the iOS 8 update this app no longer functions. In the middle of an email the screen goes blank. The curser moves and nothing deletes and its impossible to type. This is an app people use for business and you have made it impossible to do that now. Fix this urgently please !!!!!

  12. Viewing Emails

    Why is it that I can't view the entire email at once? Having to slide the screen back and forth in order to view two or three extra words is pointless and time consuming.
