Welcome to Sunrise
We’re really excited to launch our first mobile version of Sunrise today, free in the App Store. Sunrise is a fast and beautiful calendar designed to make your life easier.
When we sat down about three months ago to start designing our product, we looked at the current state of calendars and realized very few exciting things had happened in the last 7 years. We’re setting out to change that, and this release is our first step along the way.
Some of the problems with calendars we heard from users that we tried to solve:
1. “Today’s calendar feels quite stale”: even though everyone knows how to use a calendar, we believed that your calendar could be so much smarter about what’s going on in your life. We added full support of Google Calendar along with Facebook birthdays and events, weather predictions, directions and a better integration about the people you’re going to meet.
2. “My calendar takes forever to synchronize properly”: we worked to make the synchronization experience as smooth and speedy as possible whether you’re using an iPhone 4 or the latest one.
3. “Timezone support is a pain”: we made it super-simple to add events and determine your timezone based on where you actually will meet your friends and contacts.
We’re looking forward to hearing your feedback on our app. Feel free to reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also watch our video on the homepage www.sunrise.am
A huge thanks to our awesome beta testers, who have given us the solid love that every app needs as it’s being created.

Hello from London! Sunrise is available for Little Printer

Sunrise with Eventbrite makes your life (a little) easier!
Have you ever wondered why you need to manually add events you’re buying tickets for to your calendar? Does it feel like extra-work?
Sunrise users can now connect their Eventbrite account to get their tickets directly into the daily email. It’s like magic, no action from the user is actually required. Behind the scene, Sunrise is using the Eventbrite API.
Introducing Sunrise People.
Today, we are happy to launch a new feature to help making your life a little bit easier: People.
Remember the last time you were trying to know more about the people you’re about to meet in 10 minutes? What company they are working for? Where did they go to school? Or even how they look like?
For every event that involves other people, we’ve designed a private page with all the information you need to know quickly. We’ll be able to find more about everyone current position, previous experiences and education.
To make it easy for you to get to this page, we are appending a link to the description of the event (without modify the description itself). This page will be also very useful for the people meeting with you: they will be able to know more about you (all the information are imported from LinkedIn).
We’ve turned this feature on by default for users who have connected their LinkedIn account with Sunrise, but if you want to disable it, you can change your settings at any time. Let us know what you think!
