Sunrise Atelier stands ready to dominate the calendar-app market.

The Sunrise Calendar app is now available for use on your Mac. It was originally designed for Google Calendar, but it has branched out to many platforms including iPhone, iPad, Android, Exchange, and iCloud.

Sunrise Calendar takes a rather traditional approach in terms of calendar layout, offering a day, week, and month view. It also has weather, Google Maps, and time-zone support integrated. But where this app really shines is through its third-party integrations. You can sync your Sunrise account with a variety of other productivity and lifestyle services to ensure you never miss an important event or date again.

The app works with Evernote, LinkedIn, TripIt, Songkick, Asana, Producteev, and Github, with more partnerships on the horizon. The idea here is to import any meetings, concert dates, due dates, and other events you want to keep tabs on into your calendar in context. The ultimate goal of the Sunrise Calendar is to boost productivity by limiting the need for cross-checking between apps.

Sunrise Atelier, Inc. specializes in calendar apps and email services and is based in New York City. It was incorporated in 2012 and is under the direction of company president Pierre Valade.

I think that OnTop Calendar for iPhone is much better.
