Microsoft launches official Hotmail Android app
The wraps have come off Microsoft's first official Hotmail app for Android.
Microsoft already cater for Hotmail users on Windows Phone and across Apple's iOS platform, but up until now, those with Android have been left out in the cold.
But all of that changes with the official Hotmail app for Android - the app brings not only your email but also your Hotmail calendar and contacts right into your Android experience.
Here's a quick overview of some of the standout features you can find in the Hotmail Android app.
Send photos and videos
Quickly and easily send pictures and video from your phone. The Hotmail app also supports sending, receiving and viewing of attachments.
Multiple Hotmail accounts
The Android Hotmail app gives you access to all your folders (just like you'd see on your PC) and also supports multiple Hotmail accounts.
Rich email experience
HTML content renders beautifully in the app, give it a try by zooming in and out on mail content. The app will also switch between portrait and landscape views automatically.
Manage your inbox using Hotmail's most Widely used functions. Easily manage your mail using delete, mark read, compose, reply, move to folder, etc.
Access your inbox straight from the notification area. Your notifications are indicated by a Hotmail icon (the number of unread emails will also be shown).
