Microsoft today announced that it has purchased Acompli, a developer of Android and iOS email applications. Microsoft said it will use Acompli and its team to "deliver the full power of Office to mobile devices" via Outlook. Microsoft plans to create cross-platform email apps that support a number of email services so users can focus more an getting things done than on managing their email app. The Acompli email application is highly rated in both the Android and iOS app stores. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed. Microsoft has made a significant push across competing mobile platforms in recent months, expanding its Office product suite to Android tablets, for example, and making more features available to Android and iOS devices for free.
