But I did spend much of the day testing a mobile app called Acompli on iPhone, iPad and Android. Microsoft has apparently purchased this company and its app, though that hasn't officially been announced yet. And I can see why they're interested: Acompli is nothing less than Outlook for Android and iOS, and an answer to the mess Microsoft has created on those platforms.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/cloud/why-microsoft-wants-acompli" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/cloud/why-microsoft-wants-acompli#comments Office 365 Outlook.com OneDrive Cloud Fri, 28 Nov 2014 14:00:00 +0000 46831 at http://winsupersite.com Microsoft Adds Skype Chat to Office Online http://winsupersite.com/node/46541 <div class="field-deck"> Hey, you got your Skype in my web browser </div> <div class="node-body article-body">If you use Outlook.com or OneDrive, you have probably noticed that you can initiate Skype chats from their web-based UIs.

But the Office 365 services that are available to individuals are quite different than the business versions, leading to some confusion. Indeed, the sheer number of Office 365 offerings is the source of much confusion as well.
