Sunrise, the Google-friendly calendar app that
focuses on design, may have some competition
coming from iOS 7, but even with the added pressure,
the Sunrise team is clearly making strides. Today, Sunrise was updated in the App Store to add
support for foursquare check-ins, CrunchBase and
Google Maps, along with some design tweaks. The biggest part of the update comes via foursquare.
Users now have the ability to see their past
foursquare checkins direct from the app, complete
with mapping support. As the folks over at Sunrise
know, the more information you can source from a
single app, the better. Foursquare integration makes sense, considering that
the Sunrise team is made up of ex-foursquare
engineers and designers. In fact, it’s a wonder why it
took so long to bake in the location-based social
network in the first place. Foursquare integration transforms the calendar into a
log of where you’ve been just as much as a plan for
where you’ll go. Speaking of where you’ll go, Sunrise also added
Google Maps integration to the app instead of Apple
Maps, which should make many a weary traveler feel
just slightly better on their way to someplace new. But the update isn’t just about where you’re going, but
how awesome you are at life when you get there. That
said, Sunrise has baked in support for CrunchBase, a
database of people, companies, and investors that is
a part of the TechCrunch network. CrunchBase
support will now automatically pull in extra data about companies and people you’re meeting based on the
domain of their email address. In terms of design tweaks, Sunrise has switched up
multi-day events to show their duration on the main
view, with a countdown for the duration left of the
multi-day event. Moreover, the app now offers
cilckable links for all phone numbers, websites and
addresses. Sunrise v 1.4 is available now in the App Store for
free.

  8. Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m going to start my own blog in the near future
    but I’m having a difficult time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something
    completely unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!
