Fantastical, the popular iPhone and Mac calendar app, is concerning the iPad. Flexibits has upsized its Fantastical 2 iPhone app, yet company co-founder Michael Simmons claims they really did not simply take the iPhone application and make all the bits larger.

Fantastical Day Ticker

“The largest attribute is the interface,” he explained to MacRumors, mentioning that the development team really did not want to develop brand-new features merely given that they had much more monitor real property. “You don’t intend to enter business of formulating useless iPad functions merely for the sake of having iPad-only features.”

Fantastical 2 for iPad has the exact same iOS 7-inspired look that the iPhone model has, and a quite comparable attribute set too. It has an incorporated calendar and reminders listing, a modified calendar parser and more. The parser is the most special function concerning Fantastical.

Rather than entering into in a lot of text-boxes and switches in a time-consuming process for each festival or reminder, Fantastical individuals simply fill in ordinary english: “Juli Clover’s special day celebration on April 17th at 4PM Pacific at Chuck E Cheese” or “remind me to choose up milk when I leave work”.

The application then takes that text and establishes all the effective features in the calendar, considerably faster in comparison to attempting to enter into all that info into a standard calendar app.

The application is aware of points like time zones, and the parser is excellent at establishing duplicating festivals with strange cycles like “every third week”, something that the basic iOS calendar can not constantly handle. It likewise has an in-app map perspective if locations are gotten in, and users can send out that address to Apple or Google’s Mapping apps.

Fantastical 2 automatically attaches to calendars and pointer lists already established in the iPad’s Environments app. Users can by hand hide extra calendars or selections within the application as essential.
