Fantastical is that rare breed that falls into the category of beautifully designed app which happens to be incredibly useful. Once installed, it sits on your Mac menu bar and, when clicked, provides an incredible interface for entering events into your iCal (or Entourage or Outlook) calendar.
iCal is one of those apps which you know Steve Jobs doesn’t really use. Someone else enters his events for him. Because, entering events into iCal is an arduous process of “click here, type, click here, type, repeat again and again”. Fantastical, however, provides a natural language tool to enter your events. All you need to do is click on the icon once (or use the customisable keyboard shortcut) and you type whatever your event is, like, “dinner with John at 9pm tomorrow” or whatever.
Not only the event creation is great, but you can also view your upcoming events in list and calendar forms too.
Fantastical is one of those apps which really does transform the way you work in a major way. At just $14.99USD and £8.99GBP is really is a bargain and one of those apps which we would happily give double the asking price to developers, just to say thank you…
