iOS users have been able to share stuff between Apple-specific apps, like sharing a Safari web page via the Mail app without invoking the copy/paste ritual.

It’s no surprise that the native Mail app for iOS has a ways to go before people start ditching their 3rd-Party email clients. Until then, Microsoft has decided to throw Outlook into the game as a contender for iOS users looking to get more email productivity from their mobile device.
