Technology news related to electronic mail on ARM [chip] touch devices.
[MSFT] Office News
Applies mainly to the touch devices. Those being the [Microsoft] proprietary Surface RT (not Surface Pro) or [3rd party] ARM devices running Windows RT.
Surface Pro (AMD/Intel) should [in theory] allow it. Haven’t checked to see if it’s free or there’s a cost.
On my Dell desktop at home running Windows 8 Professional, even with OneNote 2013 RT installed, I can still use the legacy OneNote 2013 [desktop] version installed with the Click to Run digital distribution of Microsoft Office 2013 via Office 365 Home Premium.
The biggest advantage to having an Outlook 2013 RT will be more intuitive, modern, touch user interface.
Good news for Outlook users with touch devices, such as tablets running Windows 8. I’m not sure about modern MS Office for Mac equivalent for iPads. They do have a Mac version of Office but I’m not sure about the metro UI.

The screenshot below [figure 1] is from a free metro app I installed a while back called Metro Commander.
Good app compared to the Desktop app. You need to download it from the web using the Store app [figure 2].
The app is a metro or Modern UI app so it runs in what I like to call native mode that some may call metro or modern. UI stands for user interface. The screenshots are from my desktop that I’m typing from this very moment. It should be more touch intuitive, if you will, than File Explorer that you would use to explore the file system in the legacy Desktop mode.
Swipe [gesture] from the right to get the Charms menu then tap the Start button [figure 3]. Tapping on this button will get you to the Start menu or as I sometimes call it the Start screen.
