In the last time Microsoft has updated almost every day its own Windows 10 Mobile apps like Groove Music, Message, Photos…. Today Microsoft has updated the two Outlook apps, Mail and Calendar. The new version is 17.6216.42272.0 and both of them have got many new features. Most of them are concerning to the design.
You can now choose between the light and dark design but you can also use your Windows theme. Furthermore you can set now a theme color or use your Windows accent color. In my opinion these new design options look amazing!
But Microsoft has not only worked on new personalization options, they have also change the menu structure at some points:
The Hamburger Menu in the Mail App now reveals all your accounts and also lists the folders in currently used account. The settings and more are now in the pivot menu at the bottom of the screen.
I’m really happy about the new personalization settings but I don’t understand why Microsoft is moving options from the Hamburger to the pivot menu and then again back with every update. In my opinion a app should have either a Hamburger or a pivot menu but not both.
What do you think about this update? Do you like the new design options? Write your opinion into the comments!
