Sunrise Calendar has just been updated to version 2.1 with a long-awaited feature and then some.
Three months ago, the popular mobile calendar app was updated to version 2.0 with a revamped interface for iOS 7 and support for iCloud, in addition to Google Calendar.
Today, Sunrise has been pushed to version 2.1 with three new major features.
Foremost among them is native iPad support. Released in February last year for iPhone and iPod touch, Sunrise has just gone universal for iPad and iPad mini. According to developer Sunrise Atelier:
We’ve worked hard to bring the best Sunrise experience to your iPad. It’s the most beautiful calendar everywhere now. We are introducing two new visualizations: Week and Month. They make it easier to make plans from your iPad and navigate in time quickly.
The new week visualization has also been added to Sunrise for iPhone, enabling you to easily see your day at a glance and find free time between events. Just tap the week icon next to the new event button to open the new week view.
Sunrise 2.1 also adds support for Background App Refresh. This keeps the app up to date (by the hour, by default) with the latest events and notifications even when it’s not open.
