Fantastical For iPhone Becomes Even More Fantastic With New Major Update

March 7, 2013
The highly rated iPhone-optimized calendar app Fantastical has just received what is undoubtedly its biggest update to date. Fantastical for iPhone is the iOS edition of the similarly top-rating Fantastical for Mac. In her review of the app following its release in November last year, Christine succinctly stated that "Fantastical is, quite literally, fantastic." So much so that it went on to achieve the honor of being AppAdvice's App of the Week. And now, three months after its debut in the App Store, Fantastical has just become even more fantastic thanks to its latest update. If you can't see the video embedded above, please click here. The update enables multiple alerts when creating events, adds time zone support, and introduces the following improvements:
  • Duplicate or move events (tap and hold an event in the event list)
  • Go to a specific date (tap and hold the red title bar)
  • Event list is now scrollable when using the calendar
  • Today's timed events dim after the event has ended
  • Copied text containing event info can automatically be made into an event
  • Added setting to highlight weekends
  • Added setting to show empty days on the DayTicker
  • Added setting to display the number of today's remaining events or date on the app icon badge
  • State restoration (iOS 6 only)
  • A staggering number of other improvements, parser enhancements, and bug fixes
Optimized for iPhone and iPod touch running iOS 5.0 or later, the new version of Fantastical is available now in the App Store. It comes as a free update for existing users. But for new users, the app can be downloaded now for the discounted price of $3.99, set in celebration of its latest update. [gallery link="file" order="DESC"]
