Sunrise Redesigns the Calendar Experience on iOS, Integrating Facebook, LinkedIn and Google Calendars

Sunrise Calendar is a smart calendar app that was designed by former Foursquare engineers to incorporate social networking and event information from Google Calendar, Facebook, and LinkedIn.

The app, which uses swipe gestures for quick switching between calendar days, offers a feed populated with Google Calendar and Facebook events, along with upcoming birthdays and daily weather information. Sunrise provides detailed information about events, such as a Facebook or LinkedIn profile of meeting attendees.
–100% free calendar app with a gorgeous design.
-Compatible only with Google Calendar for now.
-A completely redesigned calendar experience for your iPhone.
-Synchronization that just works, in real-time.
-Quick Add Event just by typing "Lunch tomorrow at 9pm" (long-press on the +).
-Reminders.
-Timezone Support. No more headache when travelling!
-Facebook Events and Birthdays included.
-See faces of people you are meeting with using LinkedIn.
-Weather forecast based on your location.
-Smart icons.
-Tag location to events.
-Use Google Maps for Directions.
-Connect multiple Google Calendars.
Like Fantastical, Sunrise allows for colloquial language when entering events. For example, typing "Dinner with Bob at 6pm tomorrow" will schedule the appropriate event in the calendar. Sunrise uses a server component, much like Mailbox, to power its app integration and push notification system.


Sunrise Calendar is available as a free download from the App Store. [Direct Link]

Worthless! Requires you to use your Facebook login and won't allow you to use it without that. For toting so much on Google why do they require Facebook?

Can't really understand how a company launches an app like this for iOS with no iCloud contacts support.

Do they expect me to just re enter all my calendar meetings once again on their app? What if I have 100 calendar meetings already booked on my iCloud?

The app looks great but I won't use it like this.

Would be nice to try but not everyone has a Facebook account, I certainly don't.

Seems like an interesting idea, but unbelievable that it won't show your existing iCloud calendar. That seems like an essential feature to me.

are there even any apps that can support iCloud ?

i dont think apple even lets apps access icloud info besides their own products

i can't even share my icloud calendar to someone else who isnt using icloud


Yes. There do allow it now.
Week calendar for one accesses my iCloud cal. Groups drag and drop for iCloud contacts.

All these apps requiring a social media login can die on the vine as far as I am concerned. Social media is out of control, kind of representative of whoring your information for as many to see as possible.

Ugh. I've immediately discarded more than a few apps because they refuse to function without my Facebook credentials.

We need a word for the business model "free download, but we get to mine your Facebook account for all it's worth".

and if you just use a dummy account simply for login purposes what exactly is the big downside?


Dunno. Does it give Zuckerberg and his minions access to my calendar info, even under a pseudonym? If so, then I'm not interested.

I was going to say crap, but at least you can use crap to fertilize your garden.
