The powerful third-party calendar app Fantastical 2 for iPad has just been updated to version 2.1.1 with a trio of notable features. First up, the Dolphin Browser can now be selected as a default browser option. Also, the list now shows reminders that have an alert time but not a due date. Finally, the Reminder view can now be opened directly with the URL handler. Developer Flexibits also fixed a number of bugs. Here’s the complete list:
- Fixed snooze options sometimes not appearing if Fantastical was not running in the background - Fixed a hang when editing a reminder's due date on iOS 8 - Fixed a potential crash on iOS 8 when accepting invitations - Fixed an autocapitalization bug on iOS 8 - Fixed birthday alert times not saving correctly - Fixed birthday alerts being incorrect when the alert is set before the birthday - Various fixes and improvementsFantastical 2 for the iPad can be downloaded now on the App Store. As part of a new Apple sale featuring “Amazing Productivity Apps,” it has been discounted from the regular $9.99 price. You can snag the app for $7.99 for a limited time. The iPhone/iPod touch version, which didn’t receive an update, is also on sale for $4.99. Before the most recent changes, the major 2.1 update arrived in late July. That brought the ability to snooze event or reminder notifications and other nice improvements.
