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.
