Microsoft is adding support for third-party apps to its calendar feature in Outlook for the iPhone and iPad. The feature is launching with the ability to add content from apps like Facebook, Evernote and Wunderlist to an Outlook calendar.
With Calendar Apps, you can connect your apps—Wunderlist, Facebook and Evernote to start with—to see all your tasks, events and notes from your digital life in one place: your Outlook calendar. By connecting your calendar with a wide range of services, Outlook will be able to provide you with a far better view of your day, week and months ahead.
The Facebook app for Outlook will let users see any event they have been invited to in the calendar, along with Facebook friends' birthdays. The Evernote app can place notes and to-do lists made in the app in the Outlook calendar, and the Wunderlist app also allows its to-do lists to show up in the calendar as well. More Outlook calendar apps are in the works, including support for Skype for Business, OneNote and more.
