Microsoft has been implementing some changes to make a mark in the mobile segment, and the newest move comes in the acquisition of calendar app maker Sunrise. The software giant has spent at least $100 million for its latest acquisition
Sunrise is arguably the best calendar app available due to its beautiful design and powerful feature set. The app allows users to import their calendar from iCloud, Exchange, and Google Calendar. Sunrise also pulls in contact details from LinkedIn profiles so you can see a photo of who you're meeting with.
The purchase furthers Microsoft’s push into supporting the platforms of rival technology firms. Microsoft made waves when it released a touch-friendly version of Office for Apple iOS, for example, before it did so for its own Windows 10 platform.
