Outlook Web App goes native on Android

Outlook Web App goes native on Android | Business & Technology | Scoop.it
Microsoft on Wednesday released a preview version of Outlook Web App (OWA) for Google's Android, fulfilling a promise made in March.
OWA for Android is a native app that reprises the in-browser OWA that corporate workers have long used on devices that don't support the full-fledged Outlook client or have that software installed.
Pat Headley's insight:

As it has with other mobile variations of Office, Microsoft dangled OWA as a carrot to entice customers into subscribing to Office 365, the rent-not-own plans introduced in 2013. Only customers with active business-grade Office 365 accounts can use OWA on an Android device, even though the app itself is free to download.

Daniel Watson's curator insight, April 18, 7:15 AM


Many business owners are actually afraid to ask for referrals, recommendations and testimonials from their customers, yet referrals are the lifeblood of successful businesses, and every business owner needs to overcome their fear and make referrals happen.


To build up the courage to ask for referrals is never easy for those business owners lacking confidence in themselves or their products or services, but there are ways such people can  get referrals happening, without actually having to directly ask for them.


This excellent article suggests that the key to getting referrals is to know how, when, and where to ask, but for those who can't build up the necessary level of courage it offers five tips on how to get referrals without having to actually ask for them.

Angela Heath's curator insight, April 18, 6:36 PM

Referrals and repeat business can be up to 75 percent of your business.  Learn how to get referrals even if you are shy.

Stephane Bilodeau's curator insight, April 18, 4:33 PM

While some details of the fourth draft are still under discussion, it has been agreed that the principle of prioritising the environment above the economy will be enshrined in law, according to scholars who have been involved in the process. The fourth draft is due to be completed within weeks.

"(Upholding) environmental protection as the fundamental principle is a huge change, and emphasises that the environment is a priority," said Cao Mingde, a law professor at the China University of Political Science and Law, who was involved in the drafting process.
