Send Article to a Friend

Flexibits has released version 1.0.1 of Fantastical, its calendar-management tool for Mac OS X. The new release includes a number of bug fixes that affect several areas of the app, including the capability to invite attendees to a meeting, setting multiple auto-alarms, and changing locale formatting. In addition, Fantastical now also supports a custom URL scheme, which enables external applications to communicate with it more easily and create calendar entries automatically, and provides tighter integration with Microsoft’s Outlook and Entourage applications. ($19.99 new from Flexibits or from the Mac App Store, free update, 7.9 MB)
