  1. This app is horrible

    Horrible and cluttered interface
    Doesn't show ANY notifications
    Takes so long to load or do anything...
    ...and so much more.
    I hate that I have to have this app for my college web mail. If I didn't have I have it, I would immediately uninstall.

  2. Daily password expiration

    The iPad OWA makes me change my mobile password (which is different to the outlook password for my office email) every single day. Please fix.
    Also, the app randomly bumps me back out to the sign in page.

  8. Remember Password

    It would be nice to store/save password instead of logging in each time, which is very annoying and inconvenient.

  9. Notes in the event. iOS 8.1

    When creating event and adding notes OWA is typing in invisible text. The text becomes visible only when you tap anywhere out of Notes field...

  13. Missing emails

    I've been using OWA on iPhone for a while now. I switched from native iPhone email app because the calendar sync was a disaster area and I was constantly missing appointments. Now I am missing emails; there are emails in my "unread" view that don't appear in the "all" view. How can that possibly be right? Surely this is a serious but. I'm happy to provide screenshots or anything else that might help fix this.

  18. Contacts stop autosync on Android / Sony Xperia Z3

    I setup autosync using OWA on my Sony Xperia Z3 Compact running Andori 4.4.4. email and calendar seem to be fine and Cnotacts appears to work at first but fails to update (i.e. if I add / update contact details on my PC running Outlook 2013, they do not appear in my phone even though email is still flowing through. The only way to fix it appears to be to stop syncing through OWA completely and then re-sync... so first sync is fine.

    I have tried choosing to "sync now" through OWA - but it just doesn't do anything at…

  19. App very unresponsive

    After viewing roughly three emails, the next email I select will not open. I have to press the folder button, then return to my inbox to be able to access more emails.

    In the calendar I have noticed something similar. When adding an event, after about 3 selections (naming the event, location, start time) the added calendar event becomes unresponsive as well. I have to attempt to leave the calendar and return to complete my event.

  20. Why are there emojis?

    All the buttons are now emojis. It wouldn't be an issue if the emojis made sense to be what they took the place of. "Search" is a gas pump. "Compose" is a man with a mustache. "Refresh" is a diamond ring. "Send" is a clock. Why did they change from the simple pictures they were before? It's confusing and looks silly.
