    AppleInsider reports today that Microsoft has today released an Outlook client for iPad and iPhone. The free-to-download, 22.5-megabyte app works with Microsoft Exchange, Office 365, Outlook.com, iCloud, Gmail, and Yahoo Mail.

    The app gives you a unified view of your email calendar, contacts, and attachments, and automatically surfaces your most important messages from all your email accounts. You can then swipe to delete, archive, or schedule messages that you want to save looking at until later.

    The easy view of Calendar lets you share available times and schedule times for meetings. You can attach files to Calendar from email, OneDrive, or Dropbox.

    Here are the app’s main features:

    The app replaces Outlook Web Access on iPhone and iPad.

    I have installed the Outlook app and like it. I am now wondering when I will be able to get my POP Verizon mail accounts added to Outlook. MM

    I just downloaded so far so good. This is better than google calendar and easier to access. Fortunately google calendar seems to synch well with outlook. It doesn't sync on my Mac though.

    I just installed Outlook on my iPad and was amazed at how it looks just like another app I have called Acompli.

    Argh... Just did a little research and have discovered that Acompli was acquired by Microsoft. Let's hope that Microsoft doesn't spoil a good thing....
