fantastical2Popular calendar app Fantastical 2 for iPhone was today updated to version 2.4, adding a useful new feature that allows users to create event drafts. With drafts, it's possible to start creating an event or Reminder and then swipe downwards to save it as a draft, setting it aside to multitask and access other events on the calendar.

For example, if you start scheduling a lunch meeting but need to pause in the middle to check your afternoon schedule, there's no need to discard what you've written entirely -- you can save it as a draft, check the calendar, and come back to it. Draft posts are saved at the bottom of the calendar interface for quick access, and multiple drafts can be saved at once.

While drafts are limited to the iPhone version of Fantastical 2, both the iPad and iPhone apps are being updated today with full Japanese localization. With the addition of Japanese, the app now supports six languages: English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, and Japanese. Fantastical 2 is able to automatically detect the language being used to enter an event, even if the system's language setting differs.

Today's updates for the iPhone and the iPad are available to existing Fantastical 2 users for free.

Fantastical 2 for iPhone can be downloaded from the App Store for $4.99. [Direct Link]

Fantastical 2 for iPad can be downloaded from the App Store for $9.99. [Direct Link]

Sorry if it's irrelevant, but is there any relationship between Fantastical developers and MacRumors admins?
PS: I'm not trolling. I know Fantastical is amazing, but the number of iOS Blog articles related to this app is too high.

Now if they'd only do something about that god awful icon
I love the icon. They better not change it.

BTW, why do some of you hate it. Please be specific. And how would you change it? Some of you must be designers who can create a rough draft of a better icon in Photoshop or such. Thanks.

Nice app for iOS. Use it a lot. But won't be upgrading the Mac app anytime soon... way overpriced.

I can't stand the way it doesn't give you all the options, when hitting new. It's tedious having to click details every time when you add a new entry.
The point is that you don't have to use the options if you input it all in natural language in the input box.

They probably are paying some money to be mentioned here. You can find almost the same article over on 9to5mac so... ;)
It always has to be some secret corrupt conspiracy doesn't it? It can't be something mundane like Flexibits issuing a press release and all the news sites picking it up.

Their app icons still suck. The can design the heck out an app, but somehow forget the icon.

Macrumors seems to love this app though. It's a tie between 1Password.
