Flexibits has released an update for its popular Fantastical 2 calendar app for iPhone and iPad. Version 2.8 offers iPhone 7 haptic feedback, iOS 10 rich notifications, and iMessage stickers.
“We’re really happy about iMessage stickers,” said Michael Simmons, Co-Founder of Flexibits. “They are a fun and friendly way to let someone know you’re running late or even propose a dinner date.”
Fantastical 2.8 for iPhone and iPad includes:
- Fantastical now requires iOS 10
- Stickers! Express yourself in iMessage with Fantastical’s sticker pack
- Rich notifications let you quickly see more details about upcoming events and reminders
- New haptic feedback on iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus
- Improved support for Dynamic Type
- Improved reliability of Apple Watch app
- Various fixes and improvements
Fantastical 2 has long been a favorite of iOS users, as it allows them to quickly and easily create, view, and search events and reminders. The app uses an advanced natural language engine that allows users to enter event or reminder details in their own style. For example, users can enter sentences such as “Lunch with Elon at 123 Main Street on Tuesday,” and the app translates the sentence into an event and adds it to their calendar. Users can also enter sentences such as “todo pick up dry cleaning,” and the app will create a reminder, ready to check off.
The app is localized in English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, and Spanish, letting users enter events in their preferred language. Fantastical automatically detects the entered language for an event or reminder regardless of the system’s language setting. On devices supporting dictation, events or reminders can also be created simply by speaking.
