File Email with a Key in Apple Mail

In Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger or later, you can use the simple and fun MsgFiler Mail plug-in to file Mail messages using keyboard shortcuts.

New in Apple Mail 4 (the 10.6 Snow Leopard version), to assign a keyboard shortcut to any mailbox on the Move To or Copy To submenu, you can also open the Keyboard pane of System Preferences, click Keyboard Shortcuts, and select Application Shortcuts in the list on the left. Click the + button, choose Mail from the Application pop-up menu, type the name of the mailbox in the Menu Title field, click in the Keyboard Shortcut field, and press the keystroke combination you want to use. Then click Add.

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.favicon follow link

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.
