Microsoft may have acquired Sunrise Calendar App for $100 million

Microsoft logoWe have seen how Microsoft is attempting to make their presence on Android more prominent by releasing lockscreens such as Next and Picturesque, but could Microsoft be eyeing Apple next? According to a report from TechCrunch, it seems that Microsoft could have recently acquired the developers of the Sunrise calendar app for mobile devices.

Wouldn’t it be cheaper or better for Microsoft to develop their own calendar app? Possibly, but Sunrise is a pretty popular app amongst iOS users namely because of their clean and simple design, not to mention it also has the ability to source all your tasks and events from a variety of platforms such as Gmail, Microsoft Exchange, iCloud, and even social networking websites like Facebook.

This helps to consolidate a lot of information in a single app, making it a pretty decent go-to app if you’re the sort to schedule events across multiple platforms. TechCrunch reports that Microsoft could have paid as much as $100 million for the company, but unsurprisingly Microsoft has declined to comment on the report or even offer up a boilerplate response.

As it stands, the app is available for iOS devices, Android devices, as well as Mac devices where it is actually a free download. We’re not sure if Microsoft plans on closing it down post-acquisition, but for now it still seems to be up and running as per normal.
