Starting today, Fantastical 2 offers Siri Shortcuts that are designed to let you add new calendar events, view upcoming events and reminders, and more. Some examples of Fantastical Shortcut options:

  • Set a phrase such as "Hey Fantastical" to automatically open Fantastical to quickly begin creating a new event or reminder using Fantastical's parser
  • Show upcoming events or reminders as part of a custom shortcut using the Shortcuts app
  • Jump to a specific reminders list by creating a button on the home screen with the Shortcuts app

All of the available Fantastical Shortcuts can be viewed in the Settings app under Siri & Search > Fantastical after updating to the latest version.

With support for interactive notifications, Fantastical 2 will allow you to snooze alerts for events and reminders right from your iOS notifications list.

On the Apple Watch, Fantastical 2 will work with the Siri watch face, letting you get Fantastical 2 Siri suggestions for upcoming events and reminders on your wrist.

It also supports the new Infograph watch faces with Fantastical 2 complications. There are two complication styles available for the Infograph face and one available for the Infograph Modular face. Complications can be customized in the Fantastical app by going to Settings > Apple Watch.

Fantastical 2.10 now requires users to be running iOS 11 or later on iOS devices and watchOS 4 or later on the Apple Watch.

Fantastical 2 for iPhone and Apple Watch can be downloaded from the App Store for $2.99. [Direct Link]

The default Calendar apps on iOS and macOS are free and support natural input in more than those 5-6 languages Fantastical has been stuck on for a while now. That’s pretty cool too.
