Over the last four months, Outlook.com has increased in popularity and risen to more than 25 million active users. The eventual replacement for Hotmail, Outlook.com is clean, fast, and easy to use. Now, it’s available on Android too.
Developed by SEVEN, a Microsoft development partner, the Outlook.com app on Android allows everyone to take advantage of Exchange ActiveSync, regardless of whether their Android device actually supports the feature. The app is nearly identical to the one released for Hotmail, supporting push notifications, calendar and contact sync and device integration, multiple account support, and more. Unfortunately, the app is not nearly as clean and simple as the website. Hopefully, Microsoft’s team of engineers will develop a more Outlook.com-inspired version of the app in the near future.
In the meantime, you can download the Outlook.com app for free from Google Play, provided your device is running Android 2.1 or above.
