Who doesn’t like great iPad apps? At iPad Insight we definitely do. With that in mind, we offer up a quick review of an excellent iPad app, or a few great iPad apps, here each week.
Our weekly picks for Best iPad App of the Week are published here every Saturday. Check out all out picks below and you’ll soon have a collection of stellar apps for your favorite tablet.
This week’s pick is Microsoft Outlook, the official Microsoft Outlook app for the iPad and iPhone. Microsoft finally brought Office to the iPad early last year, but this new release this week is the first time an official Outlook app is available in the App Store.
And it’s quite a good 1.0 version too. One thing that puts is ahead of many rival apps right away (apart from just being the official app) is that it offers not just mail, but also calendar and contacts. Here’s a slice of its App Store intro:
Outlook is a free email app that helps you get more done from anywhere with one unified view of your email, calendar, contacts, and attachments. Outlook automatically surfaces your most important messages – across all your email accounts. Swipe to quickly delete, archive, or schedule messages you want to handle later. Easily view your calendar, share available times, and schedule meetings. And attach files from your email, OneDrive, or Dropbox with just a few taps.
Outlook works with Microsoft Exchange, Office 365, Outlook.com, iCloud, Gmail, and Yahoo Mail.
