Flexbit’s bestselling Fantastical for iPhone has received its first major update after 3 months of release on the App Store and some of the most requested features by its users have been implemented. Chief among them include the ability to set multiple alerts when creating events, support for Time zones and my personal favorite, going to a specific date by tapping and holding the red title bar at the top. The app is also on sale now, dropping a buck to $3.99 for a limited time. Besides being a great companion to Fantastical for the Mac, the interface on the iPhone makes it a snap to navigate around your schedule and itsÂ natural language engine for entering events is simply, well, fantastic. The full log of what’s new after the break.
Flexibits, developers of the excellent Fantastical app for Mac OSÂ (my favorite calendar app by far on the Mac thanks to its beautiful andÂ unobtrusive design), has finally released the long-awaitedÂ Fantastical for iPhone. What makes Fantastical special? For starters, itsÂ natural language engine rocks, and this feature has made its way on to the iPhone. So you can type (or dictate if your iDevice supports it) events like “Have lunch with Bob at 123 Awesome blvd. next Monday at 1pm” and the app will enter all the appropriate details for you. In addition, Fantastical’s unique DayTicker UI makes it a breeze to view your past/upcoming schedule at a glance.
