New Job Listing at Microsoft Points Towards Outlook for iOS
There have been several hints in the past regarding Microsoft possibly working on an iOS version of the Microsoft Office suite of apps. Previously, The Daily
posted an image of what they claimed was an early build of the software demoed by a Microsoft employee. This software demo was rumored to launch in November but no official announcements have been made.
A new job posting that was listed earlier this month hints that Microsoft could have the iOS apps in the works already. Microsoft seems to be searching for a software engineer on the Outlook test team, which is said to be working on “Microsoft’s next move on the Mac and on iOS.” Such a listing and the fact that Microsoft is looking to fill a position directly related to the rumors of the Office apps being released for the iOS platform goes to show that the apps may truly be in the works.
This isn’t solid proof though that Office is coming soon because Microsoft does have several other iOS apps as well. These apps include SkyDrive, OneNote, and a few others but one thing to note is that the job description did specify looking for someone to test Outlook on Mac and iOS. Hopefully this does turn out to be the case though as many people use Outlook due to work and having the option to use it on my iOS devices would be very useful as well.
