Microsoft’s been buying up mobile app startups recently to go along with CEO Satya Nadella’s “mobile-first, mobile everywhere” mantra, and its latest purchase is calendar maker Sunrise for “north of $100 million,” according to TechCrunch.
Sunrise is a delightful calendar app to use, and it integrates with Google Calendar, iCloud, and Microsoft Exchange as well as apps like Evernote, Foursquare, LinkedIn and Github to fill out events with more information than other calendar apps. One of Sunrise’s main strengths is that it’s available on many platforms, including iOS, Android, Mac, and Chrome. Given Microsoft’s new cross-platform focus, it’s absolutely possible that those apps will continue to be developed, although I wouldn’t blame Sunrise users for being nervous.
