Smart iOS calendar Sunrise now logs your Foursquare checkins and offers CrunchBase info for contacts

Hot on the heels of its recent $2.2 million funding round, New York-based calendar startup Sunrise has added a couple of new features to its much-praised iOS app.

The addition of Foursquare means that you can now use Sunrise as a diary as well as a calendar, letting it log the places you’ve been in the past. Tapping any entry will bring up that locations address and a map to help you find it again. As bonus that will please many users, Google Maps, rather than Apple Maps, are now used within the app.

Meanwhile, there’s now support for tech company database CrunchBase. This is something that won’t be useful to everyone, although anyone who has a lot of meetings with people in the technology industry should appreciate the background information it provides about the companies they visit. It’s a nice complement to the LinkedIn support that the app has offered since launch.

Sunrise remains an iOS app optimized for the iPhone and iPod touch, although in the wake of its fresh funding there are versions planned for Android and Windows Phone and a desktop app is in the works.

The update to Sunrise is available now, and if you’re an iOS user who hasn’t tried it out yet, it’s highly recommended – it became my go-to iPhone calendar within an hour of starting to use it.
