Are You a Sunrise User? Then Read This

The Best Calendar Apps for iOS and Android

September 1, 2016 Tech : Apps By

Alas, Sunrise is gone. Or it will be soon. The lovable calendar app — whose secret was its simple and seamless interface, and its ability to play well with third-party apps — will continue to function, but only until a few more of its features are transferred over to Microsoft Outlook. (Microsoft bought the company in early 2015.) Which means Sunrise users, if they haven’t already, should be shopping around for a new calendar app. Here are four alternatives.


Business Calendar 2
If you’re an Android user and want a two-in-one productivity app — calendar and task manager — this is for you.
Android: Free


Fantastical 2
Powerful, smart and extremely easy to use — that’s Fantastical 2. It works with Google Calendar, Facebook, iCloud and Exchange, and can be customized to fit a variety of calendar users, from the basic to the more meticulous.
iOS: $3


Google Calendar
For Gmail users, this is a no-brainer. It’s free and smart enough to automatically know when you have lunch dates or a plane to catch, according to your Gmail activity.
iOS: Free | Android: Free


There’s a little Game of Thrones drama here: hate a rival family, then arrange a marriage and become allies. This Microsoft app will soon integrate many of Sunrise’s great features, and third-party compatibilities, into its own app.
iOS: Free | Android: Free
