Just a few weeks after rolling out a major update its iOS apps, Sunrise Calendar today announced the first version of Sunrise for Mac. Sunrise for Mac includes a variety of features and capabilities, many of which are similar to what you’d find in the company’s iOS apps. On OS X, the app takes almost all of its design cues from the iOS client with color-coded events, although the team notes that the Mac client was built “specifically for the desktop.”

Sunrise for Mac also has an offline mode, meaning that you’ll still be able to view your schedule without an internet connection. The app also supports native Mac notification integration, in addition to synchronization between the Sunrise apps on iPhone and iPad. Finally, Sunrise for Mac supports the recently announced third-party app integration. The app can connect to Songkick, Evernote, Tripit, Github, Producteev, and Asana. Songkick integration, for instance, allows you to easily add the tour dates of your favorites bands and artists to your calendar. Evernote support allows you to sync your reminders with your calendar, in addition to having the ability to edit them in Sunrise.

In other calendar/journaling news, Day One announced today that its iOS client is now free for everyone. Day One is a journaling client for iOS that has been the recipient of numerous design awards from Apple. The app was previously $5 on the App Store, but now you can get it for totally free. Sunrise for Mac is also available for free on the Mac App Store now.
