Microsoft announces a redesigned Outlook for iOS app today. The app's latest redesign is about reconciling the app experience to match Outlook on other platforms, especially with the focus on the Outlook brand. In reality, however, the new Outlook redesign provides many small improvements to UX of Outlook that will make the app much more comfortable to use than it already is.
First, the new Outlook design has a new blue headline similar to Outlooks branding. The app now contains bold font that matches the design of iOS, while the experience is consistent with Outlook on other devices.
The new Outlook experience brings some other small changes, like the new, subtle animation when you swipe on an email. Or the new calendar icon that flips back and forth as you scroll through your calendar.
The update introduces other features that will do with emails much faster than before. It now shows profile photos for all of your email addresses, so you can easily track the sender in your inbox, for example. The planning experience for meetings has also been revolutionized, with the design now showing contextual information with a glance that will make it easier to handle all your meetings and events.
Outlook for iOS update looks amazing to get straight to the point. Some of these updates will probably make the way to Outlook on Android too. The good thing about the new design is that the experience looks and feels much like before, but much has changed under the hood.
