Microsoft has just teamed up with Evernote, Giphy, Nimble, Trello, and Smartsheet to deliver the first third-party extensions to Outlook on iOS, but the road is now open to other developers as well.

Microsoft Outlook has been available for mobile users for a while, but it lacked an essential ingredient - support for add-ons. Now, this will no longer be a problem for iOS users, and the Android version of the application is expected to get updated with this capability soon as well.

The Redmond giant has teamed up with big names like Evernote, Nimble, Trello, Giphy, and Smartsheet to bring their add-ons to the iOS email experience provided by Outlook. Office 365 users are expected to receive the feature right away, while Outlook.com users should join them soon.

For now, the additional capabilities provided by the available add-ons to Outlook on iOS are not that impressive, but since Microsoft opens the gates for other third parties to create such modules, everything might change in the months to come.

Microsoft Outlook on Windows and macOS already has support for add-ons and the ubiquitous Android platform should get it in the coming months, too.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
