Microsoft Outlook is a popular mobile email app, but it's far from your only option. Here is a list of alternatives for iOS and Android if you want to try something new.

If you manage business emails on your smartphone, there's a good chance you do it on Outlook. Microsoft's mobile email app is extremely popular among enterprise customers and, along with the rest of the Office suite, is now available on iOS and Android mobile devices.

Outlook has gotten some major changes over the past several months as Microsoft focuses on appealing to an increasingly mobile workforce. Skype was recently integrated with Outlook to simplify meeting coordination: Now, when new events are added to the calendar, organizers will be prompted to add a Skype call.

The company is also integrating business management into Outlook with Project Madeira, a new initiative targeting small to mid-sized businesses (SMBs). The public cloud service ties business operations with Office 365 so SMBs can manage finances and operations without leaving Outlook.

Enterprise customers can also test the beta preview of Outlook Premium, an upgraded version of its Outlook email service that will bring additional features to paid subscribers. The preview will let testers create up to five custom email address domains, give them access to simpler data sharing, and remove banner ads.

But even with the addition of new and improved features over the last few months, Outlook may not be the right email app for you. Maybe you're looking for a simpler email app, or one that can aggregate email from multiple accounts.

Fortunately, there are a number of email apps in the Apple App Store and Google Play to explore.

Here, we take a closer look at 9 email apps for users who are tired of Outlook, don't like how it works, or want a tool to handle multiple email accounts. Have you used any of these apps? Which would you be willing to try? We'd like to hear your thoughts and suggestions in the comments.
