It’s the best calendar you’ll ever use. A smarter and practical calendar app. This free app was featured in CNN, TechCrunch, The Verge, and FastCompany.

Behind its apparent simplicity, there’s a server component (like Mailbox), making it significantly smarter with data from Google Calendar, Facebook, LinkedIn and others.

Sunrise is a free calendar app made for Google Calendar users. Designed with love, Sunrise is a new experience that will make your life easier.

When you launch the app, you get an infinite feed with your Google Calendar and Facebook events, birthdays and weather for the day. For every event, the app will provide information about the person you are meeting, such as a Facebook profile pic or a LinkedIn profile. You can RSVP to an event without ever leaving the app.

Overall, it is one of the best user interfaces I’ve ever seen in a mobile app. Sunrise is clean yet easy to understand, efficient yet full of “ah-ha” moments.

Sunrise Features:

  • 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 9 pm” (long-press on the +).
  • Reminders.
  • Timezone Support. No more headache when travelling!
  • Facebook Events and Birthdays included.
  • See faces and profiles 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.

Note this app for the moment works only with Gmail.
