Flexibits Releases ‘Fantastical’ Calendar Assistant for Mac

by Marianne Schultz
 

Flexibits, a California-based development company founded by Michael Simmons and Kent Sutherland, has released Fantastical for the Mac. Fantastical is a calendar assistant that offers easy access to calendar information in iCal, Entourage or Outlook and features a natural language engine for quick event creation.

Fantastical supports CalDAV and works with Google Calendar and Yahoo! Calendar accounts. MobileMe users will find that events added or changed in calendars selected for synchronization through Fantastical will be reflected in the calendars on other devices, including iPhones and iPads.

Flexibits has created a demo video to show how Fantastical works:




Fantastical debuted today in the Mac App Store and is currently for sale at a special introductory price of $14.99 through June 1. A full-featured 14-day demo version is available for download directly from the Flexibits site here.

Though I’ve only been using Fantastical for a very short time so far, it’s already proved to be quicker and easier than opening iCal and adding a new event manually and the natural language recognition really does work. If all goes well in the near future, I’ll be purchasing the full version of Fantastical before the price increases after June 1.

    A few months ago, I purchased Fantastical and then I kept receiving new prompts to purchase the program. I was impressed by the quick response trying to work the program. However, I could not give it my full attention for health reasons. Once again, I will try your program, if I can get to the program that I bought.

    Please remove my comment. I didn’t know that it would be published online. I just need some tech help!
