Fantastical 1.3.6

Send Article to a Friend

Flexibits has released Fantastical 1.3.6 with the capability to use natural language to specify a calendar as you type the text of an event (previously, you could specify a calendar by using a forward slash at the beginning or end of your text). Now you can type “calendar [calendar name]” in an event string (such as “record Watchlist podcast calendar TidBITS”). The update also speeds up event updates for Microsoft Outlook users, ensures the details window doesn’t disappear during an active search, and autocompletes two-digit years (where 13 becomes 2013). ($19.99 new, free update from Flexibits and the Mac App Store, 11.2 MB, release notes)
