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.
