Fantastical

I get sent lots of beta software. Sometimes I’m impressed. Sometimes not so much. I’ve been running the betas of the newly released Fantastical for several weeks and it changed the way I add events. As soon as it hit the Mac OS X App Store, I paid my $15 willingly. This is a menubar app that applies fuzzy logic to event creation. Type in “Basket Weaving Class tomorrow at 2pm” and it creates an event tomorrow at 2pm called Basket Weaving class. It even lets you watch it decipher your text so you can make adjustments before adding the event. In short, I dig it.

    This seems like an awesome app, but $15 is a little pricey. Especially considering that Quickcal in the app store does the exact same thing for .99¢ but without the calendar viewing. If you want the calendar viewing in the toolbar, you can download a free app in the Mac app store called "Calendar" and, boom, you have the same functionality for 1/15 the price.

    Fantastic post David! If Omnifocus 1.3 is the metaphorical present under the tree, this is the stocking stuffer. And a total productivity killer lasting 60 seconds while I decided whether or not to purchase. Purchased.

    Hi! thanks for the 'Fantastical App' review. BUT, as being a Launchbar power user as you taught us, nothing is as easy as creating an event using Launchbar… why using another app when Launchbar can do it all perfectly???
