Why people are making the switch from Sunsama to Ellie

A free (forever) plan

Unlike Sunsama, Ellie has a free plan that lets you do the basics. Our pro plan that unlocks additional functionality is reasonably priced at $4.99/mo.

A gorgeous mobile experience

Our native iOS app lets you bring the full power of Ellie on the go. Sunsama has an iOS app, but based on reviews it isn't as good as their web experience

Built for consumers

As seen through their significantly higher price, Sunsama is built for companies and teams. Ellie was built with consumers in mind. Our features and pricing reflect that.

Support Independent

Ellie is made by a single developer and has no investors. By supporting Ellie you are supporting independent app developers to continue making great experiences ❤️

"Ellie has the perfect amount of features in such a gorgeous interface. You can tell a lot of though was put into this app"
