REDWOOD CITY, Calif. -- April 16, 2013

SEVEN^® Networks, a provider of innovative software products that optimize and
manage mobile data traffic, announced that it worked closely with Microsoft to
develop the Outlook.com email Android client that launched today on Google
Play.

The announcement marks the second Microsoft-authorized Android app developed
by SEVEN.

Microsoft announced that Outlook.com came out of preview earlier this year as
the world’s fastest growing email service. Outlook.com is a brand new email
service, delivering a beautiful, fresh and intuitive experience on modern
browsers and devices.

The new Outlook.com app has been designed with the same principles as the web
experience. It supports Android 4.1 and 4.2 (Jelly Bean) devices and will
deliver push-enabled access to the inbox, contact list, folders and calendars.

“It is an honor to be working with Microsoft once again,” said Ross Bott,
President and CEO of SEVEN Networks. “The prior Android app, developed by
SEVEN, was incredibly successful with millions of downloads and very high user
ratings. We’re confident that the Android community will be equally as excited
about the new Outlook.com app.”

“We’ve had a long relationship with SEVEN Networks, the company has embraced
the Outlook.com design principles and combined that with its own technology to
deliver a very high-performance app. This combination will result in a great
email experience for Outlook.com users,” said Eduardo Indacochea of Microsoft.

As part of its long-term relationship with Microsoft, SEVEN has successfully
certified hundreds of devices from a variety of manufacturers for the
Microsoft-authorized Android apps, including HTC, LG, Motorola, Nokia and
Samsung.
