Sunrise Calendar App No Longer Sends iCloud Credentials Over Network

Remember the kerfuffle last week about iOS calendar app Sunrise asking users for their iCloud user name and password? Scary news travels faster than good, so I thought it worth pointing out that they’ve implemented a nice improvement:

Update: since our 2.11 version, we are not sending iCloud credentials to our servers, the app generates the secure token client-side. We use them to generate a secure token from Apple. This secure token is the only thing we store on our servers, we never store your actual iCloud credentials.
