When Microsoft announced Outlook.com one of the things they focused on was how it is made for the web. They showed how it can scale to different screen sizes and even work well with touchscreens. If you own a Windows RT device you have to rely on the web offerings since the desktop app can’t be installed. it appears that Microsoft is not happy with just having a web app for RT users, so they are creating an official app.
This news comes from ZDNet. They report that Microsoft has just finished testing an Outlook app for Windows RT. This will give RT users a full featured alternative to the simple web app. ZDNet also states that there is some internal debate on the value of releasing a RT app. We’ll just have to wait and see what happens. Are there any Outlook users out there who need a more powerful app?
