  1. 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…

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  5. In app update broken.

    If I accept "refresh" the in app update, it's failing into a permanent "update" mode. It states it might take a bit, but I've waited over an hour and it still isn't done.

    The BIG issue with this is that during this time, my inbox doesn't update.

    Workaround is to kill the app and decline the update.

  6. Text disappears while wring an email

    Quite sad that a software development company would release an app which this many glitches. I would expect that from a game app developed by 14 year olds, not Microsoft.

  8. Bug: OWA switches to an invisible font

    So, sometimes OWA switches to an invisible font while editing the message. Very frustrating, and maybe dangerous. Also, an email app that cannot compose emails?

  12. Lose ability to see message details

    I lose the ability to touch on message headers on left and see the details on right. Sometimes going to calendar and back fixes the issue but happens a lot.

  16. Allow users or at least Enterprises to decide whether pass code is required.

    Plus the passcode timeout function does not currently work properly on iOS 8, iPhone 5.

  17. White text - change text color

    Since upgrading to the new iPhone OS, the OWA application switches text color from ack to white mid sentence and is not legible. The application still auto fills word possibilities yet they are invisible to the sender and receiver. A way for users to switch text colors manually would be great.

  19. OWA for iPhone ReminderDialog_MessageBody and more

    The OWA for iPhone app shows variable names instead of content. For instance ReminderDialogMessageBody in a calendar reminder message and SplashScreenMessagesStartingAppName when the app starts. Please fix asap. I run ios 8 on iPhone 5 with the latest app version.
