Fantastical 2 brings a “flat” redesign to the lauded iPhone calendar app, while offering both light and dark themes. New in this version is the capability to create, edit, and view reminders. You can also expand snippets with TextExpander support, use typed or spoken natural language to add reminders and events, see maps of event locations, and scroll through upcoming events in the Day Ticker. Temporarily on sale for $2.99, it’s a fantastic alternative to Apple’s humdrum Calendar app. follow link
Thoughtful, detailed coverage of the Mac, iPhone, and iPad, plus the best-selling Take Control ebooks.

79-Word Review of Fantastical 2 for iPhone
Yes, but what about syncing with your Mac? When I search for sync, iCal or Mac on the site it comes up empty. That's a deal-breaker for me.
Ray, Fantastical uses the same calendars as the Calendars app, which sync via iCloud, Google, etc. There is also a Mac version of Fantastical that is fantastic…al.
Thanks, Josh. Frustrating that I can't find that info on the site. One more question: Why does the headline for this review on the main page link to the Fantastical web site instead of this review?
That's a side effect of using our ExtraBITS system to write these tiny little reviews - ExtraBITS pieces are all links to something else. If we keep doing this, we'll need to change that behavior on the main page.
