My employers required us to switch to Outlook for email a couple of years ago. I’m OK with that. The security reasoning is sound and it’s not my responsibility to have opinions about how they run their IT.
However, I had gotten used to popping email message URLs into whatever task manager I use at the moment – I tend to switch between Things and OmniFocus. And Outlook has no good way to let me do that. Been driving me crazy.
And now I can do it with Hook! It isn’t cross-platform, which means I can’t access the email on my iPhone and iPad from the link. But realistically I don’t ever need to do that.
Until Microsoft gets off its butt and fixes this missing capability in Outlook, Hook fills an essential need for me.
