  4. Security of this application

    I am an Exchange Administrator and I am in the process migrating my users to Exchange 2013. I would like to get more information on how data is saved to the phone locally if any? What is the security of this application? Does it time out and are users required to log back in in a given amount of time? What if there is a data spill (classified information sent over email) and it goes to a user with this application on their phone? Is that email recoverable if the app is deleted? Is there a way to prevent user…

  5. iPhone 6 issues

    The app on iPhone 6 app the email app will freeze and not let you go into any other emails. The only way to fix it is to double click the home button and close the app and then restart it.

  7. What's with the goofy icons?

    After updating the app recently, I see that you added icons to buttons which don't seem to make sense--the icons used do not intuitively convey what the buttons do. It's very distracting and makes me inefficient.

  8. Remove emoticons from navigation buttons

    I don't know which idiot decided that emoticons where a good replacement for the original navigation buttons, but the app looks like it's for children. Change it back. Dumbest idea ever.

  10. Would like notes to synchronise with the native phone app

    At the moment when you go to edit a note it's treated as a draft email. If I wanted a draft email, I would have started one.

    It wouldn't be so bad of the sync hadn't stopped via the iPhone native process, but when my notes just vanished without warning I wasn't terribly chuffed ;-(

  12. Improve German translation / quality control

    There seems to be a problem with the translation of the Splashscreen (it only shows SpashScreenMessagesStartingAppName) and the notifications section (it only shows ReminderDialogMessageBody).

  13. Make it easier to erase emails on my iPhone

    Make it easier to erase multiple emails at one time. Don't make me swipe. Let me select multiple emails and then click one place to erase.

  18. Emoji for option symbols

    I'm not sure why my OWA app suddenly has random emoji in place of the regular option symbols (back, send, new, etc), but it is really frustrating and I have no idea what the emoji symbolise, so I have to click through each one to get to the option I'm looking for

  19. Does this app actually require that much power that it can't be installed on an iPhone 4? Cheers!

    It's sad to see this. OneDrive and Office Mobile DO work on my iPhone 4. I really don't see why OWA doesn't. Some information will be appreciated.

  20. Readjust to iPhone 6+'s screen size

    The app looks very zoomed and stretched. Please readjust to optimize for the iPhone 6+'s screen size so it shows more content.
