Outlook 2013 RT Coming to Windows RT Tablets as part of Windows 8.1 Update

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.
