14.09.16 Microsoft updates Outlook for iOS and closes Sunrise


In 2015 Microsoft acquired Sunrise, the popular calendar app. Now Microsoft has closed this app and delivered a major update to the calendar features in its Outlook app for iOS. New Outlook's calendar has a design that looks much more like the old Sunrise app than previous versions. The in-app calendar uses colored icons that will look familiar to Sunrise users. The update also added a few new ones with event-specific graphics. Outlook is also much better at handling specific locations for events. It now uses Bing to fill in locations for meetings and appointments and you can open maps and directions directly from calendar entires as well.



2015 Microsoft to replace Sunrise calendar with Outlook


Microsoft will discontinue its multimillion dollar acquisition Sunrise after Outlook fully absorbs all of the calendar's existing features, Microsoft's Outlook chief. Javier Soltero, who joined Microsoft when the company acquired his email app Acompli, which became the basis for the current Outlook app, didn't say when the transition would happen but said Outlook's calendar would be steadily gaining new features during the next few months. It's not totally surprising. Microsoft discontinued another acquired app Acompli when it launched the new Outlook app at the beginning of the year.



2015 Microsoft's mobile calendar Sunrise makes scheduling meetings easier



Mobile calendar app Sunrise, recently acquired by Microsoft, has unveiled a new feature called Meet - a third-party keyboard for both Android and iOS that lets you pick time slots and send them to someone without ever leaving your current app. Here’s how it works. Let’s say you are reading an email and someone wants to meet you. You hit reply, type your response and then switch to the Sunrise keyboard. You pick time slots that work for you in your calendar, and hit done. Sunrise will generate a link and add it to your email. And it works exactly the same way in your favorite messaging app or in any other app. When your recipient taps on this link, there are two different scenarios. If you are using Sunrise, this link opens Sunrise and shows you meeting suggestions inside your calendar. You can confirm or suggest another time.



2015 Microsoft acquired calendar app Sunrise for $100M


Microsoft has acquired calendar app maker Sunrise at least for $100 million. Sunrise has a suite of calendar products for mobile and desktop users that connects with and consolidates calendars from different providers. It’s available on the iPhone, iPad, Android devices, and on the Mac App Store, as well as offering a web client. Users can access their calendars from Google, iCloud, and Microsoft Exchange, as well as connecting to a wide range of other third-party apps. That cross-device and cross-platform support has helped it gain significant traction among users. The purchase furthers Microsoft’s push into supporting the platforms of rival technology firms. Microsoft made waves when it released a touch-friendly version of Office for Apple iOS, for example, before it did so for its own Windows 10 platform.



2014 Sunrise Calendar lets you connect third-party apps


Sunrise introduced integration of third-party apps to its calendar platform. You can now connect your Evernote, GitHub, Songkick, TripIt and Asana accounts to Sunrise to see your relevant data directly in your calendar, and interact with it. For example, with the TripIt integration, you can see your future flights in your calendar without having to manually add this info. With Evernote integration you can actually edit your notes in Sunrise or change the due date. And the GitHub integration shows your milestones in your calendar. Sunrise calendar is available on three different platforms — iOS, Android and the web.
