Flexibits launched Fantastical 2 for the Mac this morning, the long-awaited update to its popular calendar app for the Mac. To celebrate the launch, Flexibits has teamed up with us to offer 25 MacRumors readers a chance to win a Fantastical bundle that includes a copy of the new Fantastical 2 for Mac app, a copy of Fantastical 2 for iPad, and a copy of Fantastical 2 for iPhone.

If you're not familiar with Flexibits' line of Fantastical apps, they're some of the most popular calendar apps in the Mac and iOS App Stores, due to cross-platform availability and the use of natural language parsing for scheduling events. It's possible, for example, to write something as simple as "Meeting with Eric at 4 p.m. tomorrow" and have the event properly scheduled in the app.

The apps also integrate with Reminders to allow users to schedule to-dos that are time and location-based, putting event details and reminder lists in one easily accessible spot, plus they includes customizable event alerts, geofencing, built-in maps, and more.


The Fantastical 2 app for Mac launching today includes a Yosemite-style redesign, a full calendar window, Handoff and extension support, a Notification Center widget, and a new feature called Calendar Sets, for quickly switching between groups of calendars.

To enter to win one of the 25 Fantastical bundles, use the Rafflecopter widget below. You can earn additional entries by subscribing to our weekly newsletter, subscribing to our YouTube channel, following us on Twitter, or visiting our Facebook page. Due to the intricacies of international law regarding giveaways, this giveaway is open only to U.S. residents who are 18 years of age or older.


The giveaway will run from today March 25 at 11:00 a.m. Pacific Time through March 27 at 11:00 a.m. Pacific Time. The winners will be chosen randomly on March 27 and will be contacted through email. A response to our email is required within 48 hours or the winner will forfeit the prize and we will pick a new winner.

If you want to buy Fantastical 2 for Mac and iOS, the apps are available through the following links:

- Fantastical 2 for iPhone, $2.99 [Direct Link]
- Fantastical 2 for iPad, $6.99 [Direct Link]
- Fantastical 2 for Mac, $39.99 [Direct Link]

Oh, wait a minute. I forgot... I'm Canadian... I don't actually exist.

On the plus side, you're Canadian. That comes with a ton of benefits we only dream about. One benefit is your ability to export your worst people to us and somehow convincing us to welcome them: Bieber and Cruz.

None of that has a damned thing to do with this offer. That said, if we're threadjacking, I'll admit I'd rather have universal health care than Fantastical.
