Android/Chrome/Web: Sunrise, our favourite calendar app for the iPhone, just made the jump to Android, and it’s bringing all of its best features along for the ride. Sunrise is also adding a webapp designed to give you a productive view of your day.
All of the features that made Sunrise a hit on the iPhone and iPad have made it to Android: support for multiple Google calendars, support for meetings and contacts in multiple time zones, Facebook events and birthdays on the same calendar, local weather reports and other useful information, information pulled from your Google contacts, LinkedIn contacts, and Facebook friends, and support for iCloud calendars (Exchange support is promised in a future release)
Similarly, Sunrise lets you add events and reminders in plain language, so you don’t have to format the date or time properly — “Lunch with Whitson tomorrow at 2pm” will populate correctly, and if you add a location for your meeting, Sunrise will use Google Maps to add in relevant information and provide directions when it’s time for the meeting.
In addition to the Android app, the Sunrise team has also unveiled webapp, which has all of the same great features (the webapp prompts you for your location to add things like sunrise/sunset and weather information.) If you’re a heavy Chrome user and would prefer a Chrome app, there’s also a new Chrome extension. Hit the links below to give it a whirl.
