Fantastical 1.3.11

Send Article to a Friend

Bringing the same precise timing capabilities of its calendar entries to reminders, Flexibits has released Fantastical 1.3.11 with the addition of a due time field when you select Due Date in a task. The calendar app also fixes errors when using iCloud, an issue that prevented Outlook events from updating, a bug that made Fantastical appear partially offscreen when using multiple displays on OS X 10.9 Mavericks, and a potential hang when creating events with invitees on Mavericks. ($19.99 new, free update from Flexibits and the Mac App Store, 11.7 MB, release notes)
