Microsoft announced yesterday a new acquisition, namely Acompli. This small company is, according to the official post on The Official Microsoft Blog, "provider of innovative mobile email apps for iOS and Android." This move comes not long after the Redmond giant announced the purchase of notorious multiplatform title Minecraft, as well as a partnership with Dropbox

Earlier this year, Microsoft launched Office for the iPad and the iPhone, announcing a version for Android devices as well. The Acompli email and calendar app delivers "innovative ways to focus on what’s important in your inbox, to schedule meetings, and work with attachments and files" and Microsoft wants to "bring it together with work currently in progress by the Outlook team."

The official announcements do not provide many details for now, so it seems the first changes to Office for mobile devices that will be the direct result of this acquisition will probably come in late 2015. Acompli CEO Javier Soltero mentioned on the company's blog that the app and accounts will continue to work and new updates will be delivered "every couple of weeks," at least for the time being.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
