Fantastical 2 for iPhone - Calendar and Reminders



The award-winning, best-selling calendar app has been redesigned and reimagined for iOS 8, including new features such as reminders, a new week view, and much more!

"Great iOS 7 update to my favorite iPhone calendar app. Looks great, works great, and now integrates iOS reminders." - John Gruber (Daring Fireball)
“...if you need a pure replacement for the iPhone's stock calendar-app, Fantastical 2 is your best bet.” - The Verge
"Fantastical is one of those apps that just works. Love it." - Jim Dalrymple (The Loop)
"Fantastical is my new favorite iPhone app. It looks great, it works reliably, and, more importantly, it made managing my schedule better." - MacStories
“Fantastical 2 is not only the absolute best calendar app on iOS, but the best reminders app as well.” - iMore

Just enter "Lunch with Elon in Palo Alto on Friday" and Fantastical 2 will schedule it! Or type in "todo buy milk at 5pm" and a reminder will alert you at 5PM! If your device supports dictation, you can speak the details for your event or reminder and Fantastical 2 will handle the rest.

• Reminders!
   - See your events and dated reminders together in the main list
   - Add reminders directly from the Reminders list or new event screen - just flip the switch to toggle between events and reminders
   - Set dates, times, and geofences (when I arrive/when I leave)

• Significant new parser features, including:
   - Create reminders by starting your sentence with "reminder", "todo", "task", or "remind me to"
   - Expanded, expressive repeating events such as third Thursday of every month, every weekend, last weekday of the month, and more
   - Create alerts with phrases such as "remind me tomorrow at 3PM", "alert 1 hour before", or "alarm 3PM"

• All-new event details, including a map to show your event’s locations and better repeating event options
• An elegant week view when you rotate your iPhone to landscape
• Background app updating allows events, reminders, and alerts to be pushed to Fantastical 2 even if you don't launch the app very often
• An extended keyboard when creating new events or reminders, providing instant access to numbers and symbols for dates and times (only for 4" screens or larger)
• Birthday options - tap on a birthday to see contact information or send a quick greeting
• TextExpander support
• Many other refinements and improvements

• The easiest and fastest way to add new events or reminders
• Just type in your details or use dictation and watch your words magically turn into an actual event or reminder!

• Fantastical 2's DayTicker is the efficient and enjoyable way to see your schedule
• The expansive and beautiful event list makes it easy to find your events
• Tap an event or reminder to show and edit its details
• Tap and hold an event to duplicate, move, or share
• Use search to instantly locate specific events or reminders
• View your Facebook events

• Supports the same calendar services as the built-in Calendar app, including iCloud, Google Calendar, Exchange, and more!
• Fantastical 2 is fully localized in English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish
• Just type or speak your event or reminder in any of these languages and Fantastical will automatically understand
• Full Accessibility support

As I did with fantastical 1, this is my go to calendar app on my iPhone. I'm not quite as pleased with the look if it as I was with the original, but I like having reminders right there inline. Good stuff.

Love Fantastical. The first version replaced Apple's Calendar app as the go to on my iPhone and this version just takes things to the next level. Love the integrated Reminders.

What are some of the main improvements/changes over the original Fantastical? You mention integrated reminders... are there many others?

Totally love it. The primary reason is its list view of appointments. Ever since iOS 7 I've desired that view and this app has it. Plus there are other cool features that I haven't yet discovered.
I just realized this exists. I was wondering why Fantastical wasn't updated properly yet.
Michael Johnston replied:
Yeah, it's pretty great. I just wish there was a version for the iPad.

A great app!!! Makes entering appointments into your iOS device a delight, they also publish a mac app, both on my top ten list. This app is for busy people who make lots of appointments, and hate apples slot machine date interface.
