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:
excellent timing! Ordering my S4 today. Much love for the new outlook.com.
Now if you only fix it so links open in the default web browser, not within the mail app itself. The links never work for me. It was like this in the previous update also. Luckily the Amazon app store still had the older version where links did open in the web browser. Please restore this most important functionality!
I've been using the Outlook App for my Xperia S and it's been working fine.
Today the background switched from black to while so I realised that something was going on.
But the only thing that matters is that it's slowed down.
It can take up to 4 seconds to open.
PS How can I convince it to synchronise email folders that I have created
Or is it fixed? I don't want to go through all that hassle again.
I love outlook.com and am dying to switch all my accounts from the mess that is Gmail. But the android app STILL DOES NOT allow you to choose which account to send from?!?!?!?! Wow. Just wow. This can't be that difficult...
what about pc's
@ NiteCourt - Links should open in the default browser.
@Richard - hitting the refresh button should refresh your folder list and pull in any new ones you just created
@jenkinswv - Great suggestion, we're always looking at ways to improve.
One thing I can't find is a way to change the name shown on the outgoing emails. I sent a test email to myself and it showed email@example.com on the "from" line instead of my first / last name.
Maybe I'm just missing something.
Please please please change the font size... 75% of my emails get the names truncated, and it's just not pleasant to look at. It's like dialing on one of the huge large-button phones at your grandmas. I really like all of the changes and it looks very slick... but it could show 4 or 5 more emails on the screen as well as being easier to look at. It's like trying to view msn.com at 640x480... there's just waaaaay too much content for the small screen resolution. Maybe it works better on a tablet, but on my droid razr maxx (and in the screenshots above) it is just too large of a font.
Every time I try to sign in on my Samsung I get the message that the authentication of my account has failed and I can't access it, I really need to!
@Attila, @mdonaldson, we're taking a look, thanks.
Font size too big on smartphone but good size on tablette. Impossible to edit contact. Good change ! Nice app!
So much better. But for the love of god add an Archive button. That is what I do 90% of the time with email. I read, then archive (or delete or mark as spam). I don't want to click three times to move it by hand.
