    Sunrise will be closing down. If you want the same features, you'll have to use Outlook's web calendar.

        Riaan, I'm right along with you. It reminds me a little of when Yahoo! took over Astrid. I loved Astrid for task lists and then...that was the end of it, unfortunately.

      Thanks for sharing that, Lee. It is so disappointing, I really like Sunrise! Although, I'm sure Outlook users will be happy.
