We're excited to announce a major upgrade for our Outlook.com app for Android devices that overhauls the entire user interface and provides a number of new features. You can get the latest app here.
We believe that the best mobile experience is enabled through Exchange ActiveSync--which provides a rich, powerful, network-optimized experience for Windows Phone, iOS and other mobile devices. However, native support for Exchange ActiveSync on Android devices varies significantly and so we build a separate app to ensure as many people as possible can have a great Outlook.com experience across all their devices.
As you've heard us talk about previously, the overall response to Outlook.com has been very positive. However, our Android app has been behind and so we're excited to take this large step forward. Starting today, you can get the same great Outlook.com look and feel you've come to love on Windows 8 and the web on your Android device.
In addition to the great new look, we've added a number of other features including conversation threading, filters for unread and flagged mail, as well as the ability to mark messages as junk. We hope you like all the new changes. Get the update here and let us know what you think.

UPDATE May 23, 2013:
Based on your feedback since this release of the Outlook.com app for Android devices, we've made the following improvements that are now available in the Google Play store:
Near future? I run my small business through my mobile and not having accesss to my email has caused a decline in productivity.
Just installed outlook.com on my new smartphone. Getting the same error as everyone else - authentication error. What gives Outlook When will we see the fix?
Oh Microsoft... Alienating loyal users again with forced upgrades to non-functioning apps. Please fix this soon while we can still forgive
I like the new upgrade to the android app (with exception of the extremely large FONT) on the home screen.
Secondly, any iOS apps in the future? I have switched all of my personal email on the PC and android over to you guys, but hate having to go through the web on my iPad. Please let me know when we can expect an app for the iPad?
@Jake - You can use the native iOS client to get your mail, calendar and contacts using ActiveSync.
@ Jamie - We've identified a fix on the service that should have resolved the issue for most people. We'll be adding support for Android 2.2 soon. Please let us know if you're still having authentication issues.
I keep getting authentication error. I have uninstall the app and would NOT recommend it.
Getting intermittent authentication errors. Got one today, requires me to re-login and then everything is fine (until the next time it happens, mildly annoying). Any info you'd like to share re the font size issue?
@Steve Kafka: Any fix forthcoming to resolve recipients getting my emails with the email address as the "From" name instead of my actual name?
Didn't have this problem with the old Hotmail app on my Note 2.
What is this app? It looks ridiculous. More importantly, IT FORCES YOU TO RE-LOGIN PERIODICALLY. That defeats the purpose of having quick phone access. Get rid of the forced re-login now.
Anyone who's still having problems signing in, or being asked to sign in repeatedly, please post to our support site, answers.microsoft.com/.../mail and we'll have someone work with you to track down the issue.
