Sunrise, the calendaring app that was bought by Microsoft in 2015, now has its execution date.
The company took to its blog to say its final goodbyes, suggesting that its staff can’t maintain two apps simultaneously (Sunrise, and now Outlook, which most Sunrise employees are now working on).
Microsoft gave the notion that this would happen back in October 2015, but now we finally have a definite date of termination.
“The entire Sunrise team is now working side-by-side with the Outlook team and it’s a thrilling moment for us to work on an app of this scale,” the company stated in its blog.
“Unfortunately, as all good stories go, there’s a sad bit to it: we’re not able to support and update Sunrise anymore. No new features. No bug fixes. For us, that’s the definition of a lousy app and it’s not a user experience we want to leave you with. For this reason, we’ll be removing Sunrise from the app stores in the next few days.
“Whether you decide to follow us to Outlook or not, we couldn’t go without first saying a massive THANK YOU.”
The company also remarked that the final working day for the app will be 31 August.
