The Windows communication apps — Mail, Calendar, People, and to a lesser extent, Messaging — form the core of Microsoft’s Windows 8 tiled app assault.
On the one hand, they’re free — or, I should say, no additional cost when you buy a Windows computer. So you can’t really expect too much out of them. On the other hand, they’re competing against other free communication apps — I won’t mention the iPad by name — so there’s a lot of pressure to deliver solid apps that people will want to use.
