Microsoft Outlook is a tool for managing email, contacts, and calendars. And if you use Outlook on a desktop computer or the web, you can also use add-ins to extend the functionality.

Now add-ins are also available for the smartphone and tablet versions of Outlook… for iOS anyway.

Microsoft says Android support is on the way.

So far, there are only a handful of add-ins available for iOS, including Microsoft’s Dynamic 365, Translator, and Trello add-ins, and a few third-party ones including:

  • Evernote
  • Nimble
  • Smartsheet

Among other things, these add-ins can let you do things like translate an email from one language to another, view more information about your business contacts, add an email to Trello to associate the message with a project, save information from a message to Evernote, or search for and add animated GIFs to an email.

Outlook for iOS has a new Add-ins section in Settings, where you can find and enable add-ins. Once they’re ready, you can access them from within Outlook by tapping the add-ins icon.

Add-ins are designed using HTML and JavaScript and Microsoft is encouraging developers to create more third-party tools that can be used with Outlook for iOS
