When Flexibits launched Fantastical on the Mac back in May of 2011, I started actually using iCal to make sense of the hectic mess that is my daily schedule. Fast forward to today, and Fantastical is an app I still can’t live without. I was ecstatic when Flexibits sent me an early copy of Fantastical for iPhone to try out, and I’m pleased to report that it is everything you would expect and more. Apple’s Calendar app just got dethroned again.

Earlier this month, we told you the awesome calendar app Fantastical is making the leap from Mac OS X to iOS. It’s now available to download for your iPhone — priced at just $1.99 — and like its desktop counterpart, it’ll change the way you use your calendar forever.
Fantastical is an awesome little calendar app originally developed for OS X by Flexibits. It sits in your Mac’s menu bar and provides you with quick and easy access to your appointments and reminders. You’re probably already familiar with it; we’ve covered it a number of times here on Cult of Mac, and we’re big fans.
Which is why we’re pleased to tell you that Fantastical is coming to your iPhone.
Fantastical is one of our favorite Mac apps here at Cult of Mac, because it makes managing your calendar a breeze — unlike Apple’s built-in Calendar application. Today it got a massive update that introduces support for OS X Mountain Lion (coming today!), Retina graphics for the new MacBook Pro, and more. It also has 50% off its price tag for a limited time.
Fantastical is one of my favorite Mac apps. The handy calendar app sits in my menubar and manages my schedule like a personal secretary. The beauty of Fantastical is that, unlike iCal on the Mac, you can quickly add complex events to your calendar using natural, everyday language. “Lunch with John at 12 on Thursday” translates to an event titled “Lunch with John” that’s automatically scheduled for Thursday at noon.
Flexibits, maker of Fantastical, announced a nice update to the app today. Version 1.3 adds Reminders integration, allowing you to add and edit reminders on your Mac and have them synced via iCloud to your iOS devices.
