Outlook for iOS

Hide buttons when reading/scrolling through long emails

Especially in landscape mode, I'd love to get that vertical screen real estate when there's less of it when I'm in landscape orientation. The iOS app Mailbox by Dropbox does this well, but I prefer Outlook for so many other reasons.

Thanks!

    The bottom menu should not be there all the time. Basically I use outlook for mail not for files and not for people. Why would a user want settings button visible all the time even on email screen? Please remove this menu altogether and make it available on demand from somewhere within the UI.

    When viewing email on my iPhone 5C in landscape orientation, the Forward/Reply bar at the bottom takes up a lot of screen real estate. My suggestion is to auto hide it once you start scrolling down.

    ...while scrolling through a long email. This way, with more of the email being shown, it'll make it quicker to read it or view images that are sent to a user.
