Sunrise Calendar app updated, brings phone call option, ability to ignore invites, and create events offline

Sunrise Calendar has proven to be one of the best calendar apps in the iTunes App Store, as it continues to make improvements. The orange themed application rolled out a new update (version 1.2) that brings a slew of much-needed features, including a phone call option with a single swipe, ability to ignore pesky invites, and the convenience to create events offline — perfect for when you lose reception traveling on the subway or train.

Here’s the full list of improvements added in Version 1.2:

  • Create events offline without a network connection (no more trouble in the subway!)

  • Dots in the calendar view when expanded to see what days have events

  • Quickly add event attendees via the event title field

  • Loads pictures from the local address book

  • Ignore invites by swiping on the cell and tapping Ignore

  • New loading animation with the sun

  • Refresh button is now available

  • Don’t miss any birthdays (new notification!)

  • Quick phone call option by swiping if phone number available

  • Bug fixes and performance improvements

The new update has made the app a more enjoyable experience overall, and it gives it a better chance up against the likes of Tempo and Fantastical.
