Viewing Outlook Calendars on Android

Accessing Outlook calendars on another Android device isn't as simple as on iPhone. iTunes lets you sync Outlook calendars easily with an iPhone.

For Android, you will need to download and install the free Microsoft Outlook app from the Google Play Store. When setting up this app, it will ask you to add accounts. Add the accounts that you want to be able to access on your Android device, and you will be able to access the calendars!
