People can use Outlook in tab and mobile devices also. Microsoft acquired Acompli and re-branded as Outlook for iOS and Android. Acompli was already a good email client for iOS and Android. Microsoft now making it more usable and good quality email client for iOS and Android. They are updating the product frequently with new features and fixes.

You can read the official post here to know more about the new changes.

Really forward to look for the days when all the Outlook desktop power will come to Outlook mobile and tab.
