Outlook on iPhone and iPad adds Facebook, Evernote and Wunderlist support for calendar events

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.

Microsoft says (opens in new tab):

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.

  • I definitely want Facebook calendar support before officially supported Exchange/Office 365 shared mailbox support. For sure. Thanks Microsoft.
  • Subscribed calendars would be nice!! ;)
  • Still no support for Google Calendar ?? Outlook looks nice, and did try using it, but as there was no way to sync with my Google calendar, ditched it but would like to see it support more Cals
  • What are you talking about? It syncs perfectly with Google accounts, for at least a year.
  • I'd say it's time to give it another try. Works well with google account. Sent from the iMore App
