Mail Apps, OWA and Windows Phone 8 Compatibility RRS feed

  • Question

  • When i tried to check usability of an app on Windows Phone 8 HTC 8x i got really supprised. When i logged into OWA Office365 developer preview account i saw a light version of OWA instead of premium. I did some digging around and found this blog which says it should work.

    We tried setting Website Preference to Desktop Version, but still light version of OWA was shown.

    Is there a way to see owa as it should be seen on phone? Or is light version the only available thing.

    Also in Windows Phone 8 Outlook client apps dont load. Except for PhoneSettings in manifest is there something else thats needed?

  • Hi Anze,

    Unfortunately OWA Premium is not supported on Win Phone 8 yet. Only the light version is available. OWA Premium is available on Safari on iPhone/iPad today.

    Win Phone 8 Outlook client does not support apps.

  • Do you mean you hope to get OWA Premium on Win Phone 8, or apps in Outlook on Win Phone 8?

  • Both...i presume that fixing OWA should in some way "fix" the Outlook anyway? I guess it is Windows Phone 8 "browser" capability issue anyway?

    But if it is as what would be preffered i would say Outlook client, since this sohuld serve as main entry point to mails.
