Why I Made the Switch to Sunrise Calendar

My Agenda: The one thing I carry around everywhere that keeps my life consistent and my sanity in tack. I felt the need to write everything on my iPhone’s calendar, except for the fact that I hated it. My boss at my internship told me about this cool app called “Sunrise” and told me it was perfect for type-a people like myself. I downloaded it and never looked back.

When I downloaded the app for the first time, it was only available on  iTunes. Today, Sunrise can be accessed on the web or downloaded for every device you own, including android!

The app supports Google Calender, the Exchange and iCloud. It also can be integrated with Facebook events, Google Maps (for location), and Linked In contacts. They also have app additions that are in the app already including a to-do list service called Basecamp and a meeting schedule tool called Meetup.

    I love this post! I am a huge agenda user but have yet to find one on my phone that I like. I always use the classic written agenda but have been looking for a good App! I will definitely check this out.

    This is so great! I actually have the most disdain for iCal ever. It never syncs right for me! I love a good way to get organized (even though it maybe lasts a week for me) but this interface seems so simple and easy to use and understand, I’ll definitely have to check it out!
