  1. OWA for IPad Pro design

    Downloading and installing the OWA for iPad app I am very disappointed with how the app works on the iPad Pro. The apps believes that I'm using an iPhone and therefore all the option menus are very big and clunky. When installing the iPad app on a normal iPad and not the pro it gives a very different look and feel to how the app works. I believe there is probably some changes that I needed to ensure the iPad app works with the new iPad Pro.

    As the iPad Pro has a bigger screen I believe the app could…

  3. Fix passcode

    I had a working passcode on my iPad owa app. This has now disappeared and when I try to put it back it is not saved.

  4. Include 'badge count' like on the Outlook icon

    Self-explanatory, I hope.
    Just in case not, there should be a number on the OWA icon that indicates the number of unread emails in the inbox (and subfolders).

  6. Pinned emails

    I have pinned emails that are extremely important to my job. I have no trouble accessing the emails through my MacBook or iPhone but I can't seem to find them anywhere using my iPad. They should just pop up like on laptop or have a pin symbol to click like on phone app. Please address this issue. Thank you

  7. OWA not updating emails - disconnected

    Ever since the last update was applied on Nov 24 to my iPad my email has not updated with the Owa app. I can not go into options when I do it says there is an error. I have restarted the app... Rebooted my iPad and I can not get the app to work so I can see my email.

    Please fix. Ridiculous that we all pay for such a poor service which is only getting worse it seems.

  8. Crashing

    The ability for the App to crash or become unresponsive on an iPad is a bit ridiculous and these issues occur frequently for no apparent reason. The connectivity ability of the App needs to be addressed.

  9. Display of recipient name

    If you send an email to a recipient from a forwarded message it should only show the recipients name. Currently it shows that persons name PLUS any other recipients that were part of the original email. That's confusing and can be very worrying if you think the email went to a person that it wasn't intended too.

    This is not an issue in the desktop version of outlook.

    I hate the fact that the option for selecting multiple emails to be deleted or moved to another folder was taken away!

  15. Link the app to other Microsoft apps on the iPad

    Currently there are many applications that do not link to the OWA app: Excel, Word, Safari, Adobe, etc.

    It would be very helpful to have the OWA link to those for easy email integration.

  19. Really, no logout in the Outlook app for IOS? OMG! Does Gates know this?

    Put an easy logout button in the app, one of the last things you should leave out.
