Microsoft launches Outlook Web Apps for iPhone, iPad

updated 02:55 pm EDT, Tue July 16, 2013

Native apps carry over browser features

Microsoft has rolled out native iPhone and iPad versions of Outlook Web App. The iOS apps are aimed at organizations using Office 365 subscriptions with Exchange Online support, and replicate the features of the browser interface while implementing some functionality only possible with native code.

Basic options in the apps let users browse, sort, and flag email, and manage schedules via a calendar component. The latter supports checking whether rooms and people are free, and access to shared calendars. Voice commands can be used to search for a contact or schedule info.

In case of a limited security breach or someone changing jobs, the data in the OWA apps can be remotely wiped without affecting other content on an iPhone or iPad. For extra security, the apps use their own passcodes on top of ones enabled in iOS.

Both titles require iOS 6 or later. The iPhone version requires an iPhone 4S or 5, while the iPad release demands at least an iPad 2.

    iPad version: No access to Tasks, no zoom when reading email.

    iPhone version: same limitations as iPad version, with the addition of no landscape view.
