Flexibits has updated Fantastical — a flexible calendar application for the Mac that lets you create, view, and search their events — to version 1.1. The upgrade allows users to edit and delete events directly from Fantastical.
Additionally, notes support is now included, letting users add notes to their events. Notes can be included when creating new events or added to existing 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 US $19.99 from the Mac App Store or directly from the Flexibits Store (http://flexibits.com/fantastical). It requires OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard or OS X 10.7 Lion. Fantastical 1.1 is a free update for all existing customers.
