Fantastical 1.3

by Agen G. N. Schmitz

Adding one of its most requested features, Flexibits has released Fantastical 1.3 [1] with support for both iCal and iOS reminders. You can now add a to-do item to the calendar utility and send it to iCloud’s reminders list (which syncs with both the Reminders app on your iOS device and iCal) or just to iCal’s reminders list (which doesn’t sync to iCloud). To create a reminder, toggle the slider at the top right corner of Fantastical’s window from calendar to reminder, or type “reminder,” “todo,” “task,” or “√” (Option-V) at the beginning of an entry to force Fantastical to create a reminder and not a calendar entry. Additionally, you can set a reminder’s priority from low to high by typing from one to three exclamation points. Outlook users also get an improvement, with a notification sent to invitees after an event has been edited or deleted. If you’ve previously used a trial version of Fantastical that expired, you can try it again, as Flexibits has reset the 2-week trial period for this version. ($19.99 new from Flexibits or the Mac App Store [2], free update, 9.0 MB, release notes [3])
