  2. Battery drain on Nexus 5 4.4.2

    OWA is working fine but I noticed an important battery drain since I installed the app. The average RAM usage is 230 MB according to the Process Stats in the Developer options. Thanks

  3. App fails to connect to outlook.office365.com

    The app used to work fine. It stopped updating on July 21st and hasn't worked since. I have reinstalled and now it says that the server outlook.office365.com cannot be reached.

  4. I need to sign into multiple OWA accounts. Allow easy account switching.

    I have multiple accounts that would use OWA. For example a school account and a work account. I need both, but I can't use both of them in the phone app. As a matter of fact there's not even an easy way to log out of the OWA app so I can switch accounts!

  7. No connetion to server

    I cant establish a connetion to the server. After login it tells me that the settings are found an correct, but a connetion to the server could not be established.

    It's the same problem for any device (Android, IPhone) for our company. Is there any server setting to change?

  8. NOTIFICATIONS

    PLEASE enable to turn of email notifications - I don't need my phone vibrating for every email when I am sitting at my laptop - only when I am away from it - it would also be nice to let me have a weekend/holiday without them!

  9. Categories and Search Folders

    Why don't you implement the categories and search folders that are available in the full client of Outlook? I know a lot of people who are using these features (as they are part of the Outlook Best Practices that are defined by Microsoft).

  10. Make everything faster.

    So far I like the OWA for Android pre-release except that it is very slow. The app opens slowly, updates emails slowly, sends emails slowly, etc. I have a Nexus 5 so I'm pretty sure it isn't my phone.

  13. Microsoft must make up its mind whether it will continue to develop this app or not

    This is the only app that can access shared Exchange calendars. Supposedly the Outlook Android app will do it one day but until then I have to use this. But of course this has been in pre-release since, what, 2013? This site is still soliciting suggestions but elsewhere in MS support I've read that it "will be deprecated." So be honest with us, MS: do you have any intention of making this app better? If you do, please implement at least one of the hundreds of suggestions here and put out an update. If you don't, please just shut down…

  16. fix the login problems, QUICKLY

    I can't get OWA app to find / login to the office365 servers. We have an E1 plan and use adfs for login authentication. All kinds of third party apps work, but not this from MS

  18. Update please

    Please update OWA and release it like IOS. OWA is a far superior app than the Microsoft Outlook application but needs some major updating.
