'Fantastical' Adds iCal and iOS Reminders to Version 1.3

by

Fantastical, an OS X natural language calendar assistant, has been updated to version 1.3 today. The new version includes support for iCal and iOS reminders.

Screen Shot 2012 05 30 at 4
MacStories describes the new feature:

Fantastical can create, edit, and delete reminders with natural language recognition. In testing the app, I told Fantastical to “remind me to take out the trash”, and the app intelligently parsed the command as just “take out the trash”, interpreting the initial portion of the sentence as a reminder input.

The utility can then sync reminders across iCloud and iOS devices. Fantastical is available as a free trial download from the developer's site, or directly from the Mac App Store for $19.99. [Direct Link]

Flexibits is also the company that we've hired to develop a MacRumors iOS app which is currently in the works.

This is the best part of the story! I'm sure I missed the announcement, but I'm ecstatic to see a MR app is in the works.


Actually I'm starting to HATE this. Not because it's MacRumors, but a lot of sites are doing this, and why should I want 30-40 site-specific apps on my iPad to view information which is perfectly readable via the web? Some sites even have a banner advertising their app with either a fixed timeout (which means staring at it for 30 seconds) or with a tiny close-button in the top-right corner. Try it, in a moving train.. It's an annoying trend.

I'd rather have a css for the device I'm using.

Hate? Jeez. If you don't want the app, don't get the app.


Good tip. But I will still hate it. I will probably put a picture of the icon on my wall, then smash it with a sledgehammer. Then log in to the web site.

Arn, this should be a separate story. I think most people don't know about this.


I'd love a MacRumors App, but is Apple going to approve an App that will consistently blow their trade secrets?
