Microsoft Outlook comes to iOS and Android

Microsoft has today released the Outlook app for iOS and Android. The app is currently a rebranded Acompli email app which Microsoft acquired few months back. If you have an iPhone, iPad, Android phone or Android tablet, you can now install the new Outlook app and configure your email accounts. Outlook is a free email app that helps you get more done from anywhere with one unified view of your email, calendar, contacts, and attachments.

Outlook automatically surfaces your most important messages across all your email accounts.
