Microsoft releases an Outlook.com email app for Android

Microsoft just released an Outlook.com app for Android a couple minutes ago.

Outlook.com as you might already know, is their redesigned mail service, replacing their old Hotmail.com service. It brings the Exchange ActiveSync protocol to Android, and also has push notifications, multiple account support, and a contact and calendar sync as well. The drawback though, is that it has a really outdated user interface, that looks nothing like the sleek, minimalistic look of the Outlook.com website.

Ugh.

Still, if you need your Outlook.com fix on your Android phone, here’s the Official app. Available free, right over at the Google Play Store.
