I've been suckling on the Google/GMail teat for years and was mildly surprised when I 'unfroze' the native email app - it seems pretty decent. But it only gives options for attaching of pictures or videos, unlike the GMail app which has a generic 'attach file' button. Obviously I know that I could find my document using a file browser or other app and then 'share' it to the Email app, but this sort of 'well you can't do it this way, you have to do it that way' crap is what I want to avoid for my friend. I want everything to be obvious, easy and for her introduction to Android to be effortless.
Any suggestions, please? A free email app, with push, and easy file attachments of all types.
EDIT: I have just signed up for a Hotmail account so I can test apps myself. The Outlook.com app seems alright - anyone got experience using it? Any fatal flaws?
