Microsoft's Outlook app for Android offers a handful of useful ways to organize your inbox and puts your calendar, contacts, and cloud storage one tap away.

Pros

Nicely organized: As you'd hope, Outlook does a nice job of displaying mail, with sender and message snippets displayed along with the subject line. Your mail is organized by thread, but you can turn off the conversation view to see your mail appear separately. Four tabs along the bottom take you to your mail, calendar, attachments, and contacts.

Focused Inbox: Outlook organizes your inbox around emails it considers the most important in what Microsoft calls a Focused inbox. Tap the Other tab to see a traditional view of your email organized by date. You can also filter messages by unread, flagged, or with attachments.

More than Outlook.com: In addition to working with Microsoft's Outlook.com and other mail services, the app can handle Gmail, iCloud, Yahoo, and other IMAP mail systems.

Calendar events: The app can also coordinate calendar events across different calendaring platforms, displaying them in one view.

Cloud storage: The app has hooks into Microsoft and non-Microsoft cloud servers, letting you attach files from OneDrive, Dropbox, and Box.

Cons

Lacks Outook.com features: Some of the useful features found in the Web version of Outlook are missing in the mobile edition, including access to Google Drive and the ability to connect to your Facebook account.

Bottom Line

Outlook for Android is a well-organized mail app that offers easy access to your contacts and connected calendars. If you are looking for a replacement for Google's Gmail app, or if you're frustrated by how Inbox organizes your messages, Outlook may be what you need.

How can you tell if an Android app is safe?
