After just a few weeks of Sunrise Calendar rolling out a major update to its iOS apps, they announced today their first version of Sunrise for Mac. A variety of capabilities and features are in Sunrise for Mac, and many are similar to those you would see in the iOS app. The team has noted that the OS X client was built specially for the desktop even though the design is almost the same as the iOS client. An offline mode is also available for Sunrise for Mac, and this means that users can view their schedules when Internet connection is not available.

Other features supported by Sunrise for Mac include synchronization between Sunrise apps on the iPad and iPhone, native Mac notification integration, and third-party app integration. The app connects to Evernote, Github, Asana, Songkick, Tripit, and Producteev. With the integration of Songkick, users can input upcoming tour dates of bands and artists into the calendar. And support of Evernote lets users sync and edit reminders with the device calendar.

According to the release notes, here are some of the features:

Beautiful design built specifically for desktop
Full offline mode
Native Mac notifications for reminders
Synchronization between all your Sunrise apps (mobile and desktop)
Apps: connect Evernote, Tripit, Foursquare, Asana, Github, Songkick, Producteev directly from the Mac app and enjoy these apps in your calendar. (more info)
Sunrise for Mac can be downloaded for free from the Mac App Store.
