Fantastical for iPhone gains drafts feature [bonus: promo codes giveaway]


Developer Flexibits has issued an update to Fantastical’s iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch apps this morning. This premium calendar and reminder replacement software for iOS, watchOS and OS X now includes complete support for Japanese users across its iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch editions.

More importantly, Fantastical 2.4 for iPhone now includes drafts, a handy new feature addition that makes it possible to multitask while adding new items quickly and easily. The update is rolling out as we speak and should be available in the App Store shortly.

As a nice bonus, the fine folk at Flexibits have kindly provided more than a dozen promo codes for you, our readers, to redeem so read on to potentially grab your free copy of Fantastical.

Drafts make it easy to multitask

To convert new events or reminders into drafts in Fantastical 2.4 for iPhone, just swipe down on them. This is similar to the iOS 8.4 Music app’s mini-player or the drafts feature in iOS Mail with one major distinction: the interface for drafts in Fantastical 2.4 is similar to Safari’s tab browsing feature, as illustrated on the screenshot below.

Using drafts, it’s easy to multitask and explore your content in Fantastical 2 and return to your saved events at a later time.

Big in Japan

As mentioned before, Fantastical 2.4 for iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch is now fully localized in Japanese. Users in Japan can now enter events in their local language, using Fantastical’s awesome natural language processing or dictation.

“We’re very proud to add Japanese support to all of our iOS versions of Fantastical,” said Michael Simmons, Co-Founder of Flexibits.

“Japanese speaking users can now use the amazingly fast and friendly Fantastical parsing engine to quickly enter their events and reminders using natural Japanese language input.”

Japanese support is in addition to the English, French, German, Italian and Spanish localizations found in past updates.
