SEVEN Networks Selected by Microsoft to Develop Android App for Outlook.com

SEVEN’s Push Technology Expertise Delivers Great User Experience

REDWOOD CITY, California – April 16, 2013 - SEVEN Networks®, a provider of innovative software products that optimize and manage mobile data traffic, announced that it worked closely with Microsoft to develop the Outlook.com email Android client that launched today on Google Play.

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

Microsoft announced that Outlook.com came out of preview earlier this year as the world’s fastest growing email service. Outlook.com is a brand new email service, delivering a beautiful, fresh and intuitive experience on modern browsers and devices.

The new Outlook.com 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.

“It is an honor to be working with Microsoft once again,” said Ross Bott, President and CEO of SEVEN Networks. “The prior Android app, developed by SEVEN, 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 Outlook.com app.”

“We’ve had a long relationship with SEVEN Networks, the company has embraced the Outlook.com design principles and combined that with its own technology to deliver a very high-performance app. This combination will result in a great email experience for Outlook.com users,” said Eduardo Indacochea of Microsoft.

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