Apps for Outlook 2013

With their Office 2013 suite Microsoft introduces the App Store model for all major Office related applications, comparable to the App Stores for Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8:

  • Outlook
  • Word
  • Excel
  • SharePoint

This enables huge opportunities for developers to provide their custom solutions to a large customer base!

Two things I learned today with regards to apps for Outlook 2013:

1. Exchange 2013 is required

If you try to add an app for Outlook from the store, you’ll find the following instruction:

Indeed: Exchange 2013 is required!

2. Some apps require provisioning by administrator

And, there appears to be some apps that will need to be provisioned by the administrator, for example harmon.ie:
