A brand new version of Microsoft’s Outlook (nee Hotmail) Android app has just gone live on Google Play, finally binning the tired old Gothic look for a completely fresh and much lighter layout. What’s a bit odd is to see Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 design cues appearing on Android, with the end result being a pretty jarring experience with MASSIVE fonts and WP8-style buttons beneath the mail listings.
It is basically a WP8 app on Android. Better? Or worse?
Not entirely sure about that. At least it still works. Check out the Outlook app on the Play Store here if you have one of Microsoft’s old email accounts still in use. They haven’t updated the Play Store grabs yet.
