Android users now have access to another mail app—but this one is by Microsoft.
According to The Verge, Microsoft just launched the official Outlook.com app on Google Play with a bevy of Gmail-like features, such as: push notifications, syncing options, custom folders and sub-folders, and the ability to send, receive, and view photos and other attachments. The app also boasts Exchange ActiveSync support and the option to use with multiple Outlook.com accounts.
While the free app may serve as a Gmail alternative, it certainly does not do the eyes any justice. Just check out that archaic user-interface in the screenshots above. Outlook.com for Android currently has a 3.3-star rating based on 35 reviews.
In related news: Microsoft also announced today that Outlook.com passed the 25 million active user mark. Get more details at Microsoft’s blog.
