Solution provider helps Microsoft develop Outlook for Android

Seven Networks, a solution provider based in Redwood City, Calif. with an expertise in managed mobile data traffic software worked hand-in-hand with Microsoft to develop the email Android client that launched on Google Play.

The announcement marks the second Microsoft-authorized Android app developed by Seven Networks.

Microsoft announced that came out of preview earlier this year and is being positioned by the software giant as a brand new email service.

The new app has been designed with the same principles as the Web experience. It supports Android 4.1 and 4.2 (Jelly Bean) devices and will deliver push-enabled access to the inbox, contact list, folders and calendars.

Ross Bott, President and CEO of Seven Networks said it was a honour working with Microsoft once again. The prior Android app was incredibly successful with millions of downloads and very high user ratings. We’re confident that the Android community will be equally as excited about the new app.

Eduardo Indacochea of Microsoft added that the company has a long relationship with Seven Networks and embraced the design principles and believes it can deliver a very high-performance app.

As part of its long-term relationship with Microsoft, Seven Networks has certified hundreds of devices from a variety of manufacturers for the Microsoft-authorized Android apps, including HTC, LG, Motorola, Nokia and Samsung.

Seven Networks started developing software solutions for wireless carriers and device manufacturers in 2000. Its flagship Open Channel products claim to reduce operator costs, increase efficiency in the use of wireless infrastructure, and enhance end-user experience.
