  1. Open app faster

    I use an iPhone and use of Apple Mail was seamless. I could open my emails instantly for quick review. OWA is taking ages to open up and a mandatory password is slowing down the process even more.

    Would it be possible to make the open up process instant and give choice to the user for the password?

  3. Simple gone wrong

    The monochrome blocky look is not inviting to use. The lack of basic functions is the fail.

  4. The most I intuitive application I've ever used

    Title says it all. Please rebuild this application interface with USERS in mind.
    Then I suppose outlook.com would have to be redone as well. I'm ready for a user centric change.

  6. Faster Startup

    If the Inbox and Drafts folders are synced to the device, please have the application begin without a sync. Show me my mail, as the native iPhone application does, and begin the sync immediately.

  8. Outbox

    I want to see what's on my outbox. There are some e mail that I set to send on some particular date but I wasn't sign in. So, I download the app and try to make sure that those e mail went through but nothing came up in the outbox.

  10. Product Road Map

    Can you tell us when new features will be released? A full functioning email client is essential and not having common features accessible is not acceptable.

    We need

    Notifications
    Folders
    Priority setting
    Sorting
    And the ability to link our email to a calendar event. This is to name a few

    Thank you

  12. Speed and responsiveness

    This is to inform that my speed and response issues with Microsoft OWA disappeared after I deleted the app and reset the IPad-3, removed all the fancy display features of IOS 8.x and installed Microsoft OWA again from scratch via the App Store...

    Therefore, for those who have responsiveness issues with OWA, I advice to do the above. The change is really spectacular.... I am really sorry for blaming Microsoft for the issues I had so far...

  17. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. Buttons

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