Microsoft today announced the update for  Mail, Calendar, and People apps in Windows 8. These updates will be available in Windows Store starting tomorrow.

Mail App


- Filter emails by read and unread
- organize my email into folders
- create and delete folders
- flag important emails


- manage draft email messages
- add, edit, and delete hyperlinks and edit bulleted or numbered lists more easily in email messages
- search for email on the server
- pull contacts from a Microsoft Exchange global address list

Calendar App


- easier to read

- new “Work week” view
- use of scheduling assistant for business accounts (Microsoft Exchange)
- forward meeting invitations
- send email to all meeting attendees
- more recurrence options

People App

- navigate the People app more easily by swiping from the top (or right-clicking) to bring up the app commands
- new navigation at the top that allows you to quickly move between your profile

I am very excited about the new updates for these apps as each will help me get more use out of them (especially the Mail App).
