Flexibits’ calendar app, Fantastical for iPhone, was updated yesterday in the App Store with expanded support for pressure-sensing 3D Touch technology on the new iPhones, going beyond Home screen shortcuts that developers added last month.
Now iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus owners can use Peek and Pop commands in Fantastical to preview upcoming events and reminders without leaving the main view, or jump straight into them from the preview by pressing the screen a little harder.
Hot off the heels of its big Mac update, developer Flexibits today issued an update to Fantastical for iPad, iPhone and Apple Watch. The new software takes advantage of the new productivity-enhancing features provided by iOS 9 and watchOS 2.
These include 3D Touch support for iPhone 6s owners, a dedicated Fantastical complication for Apple Watch wearers, Slide Over and Split View multitasking modes on the iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 4 and much more.
Developer Flexibits today rolled out an update to Fantastical for Mac, its reminder and calendar replacement available on both iOS and OS X.
Fantastical 2.1, the first major update to the Mac edition, features full support for Macs running OS X El Capitan ahead of its release next week, including support for El Capitan’s split-screen multitasking.
A host of other changes and improvements have found their way into this release of Fantastical, such as swiping to delete events on El Capitan systems.
People on Yosemite and earlier versions can now scroll to a specific day or week in the Week and Month views with a trackpad and organize Reminders by list, but that’s just tip of the iceberg.
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.

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.
Developer Flexibits has made a name for itself with Fantastical, an award-winning calendar replacement for the iPhone, iPad and Mac. Today, an important update to the iPhone app was pushed, bringing out a newly-added WatchKit extension so you can at last run Fantastical on your wrist!
This update is available to all existing users of Fantastical for iPhone at no additional cost.
You must be wondering what took them so long, right? I mean, Flexibits was among rare developers without an Apple Watch app in time for the device’s April 2015 launch.
“We want to understand precisely what problem we’re solving,” Flexibits co-founder Michael Simmons tells me via a Skype chat.
The net result of their undertaking is arguably the fastest and friendliest calendar experience on the wrist and that’s saying a lot given Fantastical competes with Apple’s stock Calendar app which comes preloaded on the wearable device.
Developer Flexibits has updated its popular calendar, reminders and to-do alternative, Fantastical 2 for Mac, with more than a dozen new features, enhancements and bug fixes. The app now includes a new-look birthday event interface and has added a pending invitations section to view all incoming invitations in one place.
You can now drag text from other apps to quickly create an event and drag items from OmniFocus, which also creates a related event.
The sequel to the popular language-parsing calendar utility for the Mac has arrived and it’s everything you’ve been hoping for! Much more than a major new update, Fantastical 2 for Mac is a whole new app that feels instantly familiar while offering productivity-boosting improvements.
In addition to the revamped appearance optimized for OS X Yosemite’s look and feel, Fantastical 2 is now a proper replacement for Apple’s stock Calendar and Reminders apps.
Fantastical 2 has its own full-blown window and gorgeous full-screen mode while its menu bar thing can now be detached and dragged anywhere on the screen. The software is packed to the gills with a bevy of new features like iCloud Reminders and time zone support, light/dark theme, birthday reminders, a more powerful and friendlier natural language parser and more.
As a whole, the app feels tighter and more streamlined. Developer Flexibits was kind enough to put me on its limited list of beta testers, this is what I was able to gather from my weeklong hands-on time with the software.
Flexibits’ calendar and reminders application, Fantastical, has received a small update today in both iPhone and iPad edition which has brought out an enhanced search feature and the ability to change days in its Today widget on iOS 8.
Moreover, the team has fixed an issue when snoozing Exchange alerts and you’ll also notice that the app now handles latitude and longitude coordinates for event locations better than before.
Flexibits just announced that is is having a pretty big sale on Fantastical for iPhone, iPad and Mac, as well as on Chatology for Mac. Discounted by up to 65%, Fantastical is an award winning calendar application that has routinely been ranked as one of the best calendar apps on iDB.
Flexibits on Tuesday issued a major update to its calendar, reminder and to-do replacement app, Fantastical for the iPhone and iPad. Now an iOS 8-only download, the new Fantastical 2.2 is fully optimized for some of iOS 8’s headline new features.
It has an informative Today widget for your upcoming tasks, ability to create events in any application that supports iOS’s multi-purpose Share menu, notifications that can be interacted with on the Lock screen, within the Notification Center and from the banner alert, and more.
This update is free to existing users. And to celebrate this major new release, good folks over at Flexibits have slashed Fantastical for iOS: the iPhone edition is now $3, down from its regular price of five bucks, while the iPad edition will run you $7 for a limited time, down from its regular asking price of ten bucks a pop.
Fantastical 2 has been updated on Wednesday to bring support for the larger screens of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, just about five days after the release of these devices. Unfortunately, users who were hoping for support for Notification Center widgets and interactive notifications will still have to wait as these features are not part of this update.
Flexibits has issued an update to its Fantastical for iPad today, bringing our a few new useful features and enhancements.
In addition to half a dozen bug fixes and various other fixes and improvements, Fantastical 2.1.1 includes support for Dolphin Browser [free download] and comes with improvements to the app’s handling of lists and reminders.
Specifically, your list will finally show reminders that have an alert time but not a due date.
And if you use iOS automation via URL schemes, you can tell other apps to open reminders directly in Fantastical by taking advantage of a new URL handler ‘fantastical2://show?view=reminders’…
