Fantastical 2.1

Flexibits has issued Fantastical 2.1 with full support for OS X 10.11 El Capitan plus a number of oft-requested features and fixes (for our full review, see “Fantastical 2 Aims to Replace Apple’s Calendar,” 27 March 2015). The full-featured calendar app adds the capability to scroll to a specific day or week in the Week and Month views when using a trackpad, displays reminders in the Day, Week, and Month views, adjusts the text size in the Day, Week, and Month views via a new setting, improves drag-and-drop when dragging events or reminders to the Finder, fixes an issue where times could appear shifted in the Day and Week views, and adds Message with Sound alerts for birthdays. Fantastical 2 has a 21-day free trial, and currently costs $39.99 from either the Flexibits Store or the Mac App Store; the price will go up to $49.99 after an introductory discount period. ($39.99 new, free update, 11.7 MB, release notes, 10.10+)
