    I see this as a good move. The iOS/Android users get to beta-test the app, so the bugs should be worked out when we get it.

    It was almost literally already made by Accompli.
    Would you expect them to intentionally sit on a finished product and hold back dev teams for the sake of looking better to people like you? Or getting it out for other Microsoft users to use?

    Before any flaming continues I have but one question, has anybody actually used the Outlook (Acompli) app? I have, on iOS. Yes, you can attach files to it, but it's limited to DropBox, Google drive or OneDrive links. You still can't access files from your phone storage (iOS does not have SD storage at all) so if the person receiving the files does not have one of those cloud storage solutions, they can't see the file. At least the Mail app on RT allows attachments the old fashioned way. Other gripes I have are the extremely limited settings and the "contacts" are only previously used recipients.

    Don't go reading that iOS and Android have Outlook and immediately assume WP users are being left out in the cold. At least we still have MetroMail and Mail Plus if we want to attach files the traditional way.

    They bought accompli and rebranded it, along with continuing development. It isn't like they've released an actual Outlook app on either platform.

    And...nothing released by them for WP which woulda been nice. Simple point: MS wants devs to make/convert apps for WP but they themselves don't even lead by example

    ​Are you really complaining both about how Microsoft released Outlook to other platforms and that they didn't really? Can they do anything right in your eyes?

    You are a business.
    You want to reach as many users as you can.
    You have just acquired an excellent email app, polished it, and its ready to go!
    Do you:
    A. Sit on this product and delay it for no reason other than to look better in the eyes of people like you?
    B. Get it out so non-WP MS users can use it and enjoy.

    I agree totally with the agentm. Microsoft must stay loyal to it's tiny 3% if it hopes to have a shot at staying relevant. It's absurd to expect developers to work for Windows when it doesn't develop such a key app for its own platform...

    They are being loyal. Outlook and Office will be best on Windows.

    FYI.
    Microsoft did not develop this app from scratch. They bought the company which basically made it for android and iPhone and only needed to do some tweaking for android and iphone.
    So I do not see what this has to do with loyalty it's misplaced loyalty.

    With your reasoning i also could argue that Cortana should not be available at all until it can be used in all the countries of the world.
    Because i am Dutch and Cortana is not locally available Microsoft should be "loyal" to all wp users so disable the function till it's available to all?

    So whats your experience then? You might have a point if releasing outlook for WP first or exclusive would result in more windows phone sales. But do you honestly belive that this would significantly result in more market share for WP?

    Seems it would rather be the other way around and the small group of windows users would hold back the office business.

    Of course I would also love to be first in line and there is a negative feeling when your not first class citizen althought your sololy in the MS ecosystem. But from a business perspective as a whole it seems to make sense.

    In my humble performance as business owner, I would always perform to the benefit of my existing customers first. It would guarantee their loyalty as I pray to gain new customers in my store.

    Yep. MS has an army of loyalists. In my business word of mouth advertising from my loyal patrons has made me successful. They have then brought me new customers. Analogous

    Yes and the net result, which is the point of the OP, is that they on iOS and Android have the new Outlook, and we don't and are stuck with aged apps that they would never download..
