People who are still using Hotmail will be glad to know that Microsoft has released an official Hotmail app for Android devices and the upcoming iOS 5 platform.
According to SlashGear, the Hotmail for Android app will include functions such as push email, calender, contact sync, send/receive images and send/receive attachments. In addition, it has multiple Hotmail accounts, folder and sub-folders support.
