Microsoft announces today a redesigned App for Outlook for iOS. The last redesign of the app unifies the app experience to align it with Outlook on other platforms, with a focus on the Outlook brand. In reality, however, the new Outlook redesign brings some tiny improvements to the Outlook UX that makes the application more enjoyable than it already is.
First, the new Outlook design has a new blue header similar to the branding of Outlook. The app now includes a bold typography that matches the design of iOS, and makes the experience consistent across all other devices in Outlook.
The new Outlook experience brings some more minor changes, such as: Or the new calendar icon that scrolls back and forth as you scroll through the calendar.
The update introduces additional features that make e-mail handling much faster than before. Now, profile pictures are displayed for all your email senders, so you can track a sender in your inbox, for example. The planning experience for meetings has also been revised. The design now provides contextual information at a glance, which will greatly facilitate handling all your meetings and events.
The iOS for iOS update looks fantastic to get straight to the point. Some of these updates will probably also go to Outlook on Android. The good thing about the new design is that the experience looks and feels similar to before, but much has changed under the hoods.
