Talking about the all new Outlook app for the two mobile operating platforms, the well-known software company said that the Microsoft app has been designed to make sifting through contacts, e-mail, file-sharing and calendar easier and is based on the software designed by Acompli, an app business that was purchased by Microsoft for more than $200 mn in December.

The new app also features a section called “People” that allows users to see the list of contacts that are the most popular. Most importantly, users do not need a Microsoft account in order to use the new Outlook app. The varied features of the new app has been designed to work with all other email services from Microsoft Exchange to Office 365, Gmail to Outlook.com, and Apple iCloud toYahoo Mail.
