Flexibits has introduced Fantastical, a flexible calendar application for Mac that lets you create, view, and search their events.
Using a natural language engine, Fantastical is “expressive,” allowing users enter event text in their own style. For example, enter a sentence such as “Lunch with John at 123 Main Street on Tuesday” and Fantastical will translate the sentence into an event and add it to their calendar.
Users can use the event list and calendar to locate and plan all of their events. Color-coding helps make quick sense of a user’s schedule. Even the number of events displayed can be changed so the user can focus on a specific range of events, says Michael Simmons, co-founder of Flexibits.
Full CalDAV support is included, allowing users of services such as MobileMe, Google Calendar, and Yahoo! Calendar to use their calendars with Fantastical once they have been added to iCal.
Fantastical for Mac is available for a special introductory price (until June 1) of US$14.99 (US) directly from the Flexibits Store (http://flexibits.com/fantastical) or at the Mac App Store. Fantastical requires Mac OS X 10.6 or later.
