Interface and usability
The app offers you an easy way to schedule your day, week and month. The mail function has a series of touch gestures installed that allow you to read, sort and archive your mail both quickly and conveniently. It is still easier to use than the Gmail app, and people have responded well to its simple swipe mechanisms. Usability has been improved over the previous version with regards to writing emails. You may now do it a little quicker thanks to the better predictive function that uses what you have already written to guess what you will write next. The navigation bar makes toggling options more convenient, and the app allows you to switch seamlessly between both your email and calendar functions.
It is an improvement over previous versions, though it is a shame it only works for Windows 10. If you are a business user, or a person that receives a lot of emails, then this app is perfect for you because it allows you to organize your schedule within the same environment and user interface. The search function doesn't always work correctly, which can be annoying. The GUI is very easy to understand if you are already an Outlook user and many of the functions feel intuitive if you are already accustomed with Microsoft software. One small problem is that if you read an email on your app, it may still show as unread if you use a browser. It is a small problem, but can become annoying. The folders function is very good, although sometimes a little difficult to manage.Sometimes the app is unable to synchronize and receive an error code, which can become frustrating. Otherwise, it is far superior to most other email and organizer apps. If you have an appropriate email account, it is worth downloading and trying this app.
