Sunrise Calendar 2.1 adds iPad support, background updates
Thursday, January 9, 2014 @ 12:28pm

Sunrise has released a major update of Sunrise Calendar, its popular iOS app. The title lets people merge iCloud, Facebook, and Google Calendar events into a single feed, as well as get notifications, weather forecasts, LinkedIn profiles, and Google Maps directions. Version 2.1 is the first to include a native iPad interface, and takes advantage of the extra screen space through new Week and Month views. The Week view is also accessible to iPhone users.



The third major addition is iOS 7 background updates, which will keep the app in sync even when it isn't open. These default to syncing every hour, but can be set to shorter timeframes or turned off. Sunrise Calendar 2.1 is a free download and runs on any device with iOS 7 or later.
