Fantastical 2 for iPad Review

fantastical for ipad

A lot of iPad apps falsely tout that they’ve been re-imagined for the tablet form factor, when they’re really just reconfigured versions of their iPhone counterparts. Fantastical 2 for iPad is refreshing because it’s the real deal. This app takes the best concepts from Fantastical on the iPhone and Mac — the DayTicker, list, and week view — and adapts them as a dashboard that’s completely unique and tailored for a tablet display.

Each of the three distinct sections of the dashboard are scrollable and connected. This means that swiping through the DayTicker can adjust the events shown in the list view (bottom-left), as well as change the highlighted dates in the month view (bottom-right). Similar behaviour applies if you scroll through the list view, or tap on a different date in the month view; manipulate one section of Fantastical, and the rest of the display will adjust dynamically.

Age of Empires: World Domination Coming to iPad and iOS this Summer

Age of Empires World Domination

Age of Empires: World Domination will be the first title from the classic Age of Empires real-time strategy franchise to hit the iPad and iOS. It’s due for release this summer, and it looks pretty great in an early trailer video.

It lets you choose from any of the game’s 4 most popular civilizations – the Celts, Vikings, Franks, or Huns – to do battle online in multiplayer combat.

I was a huge Age of Empires fan back in the day, so I’ll be curious to see how well it translates to the iPad. Here’s that trailer video for Age of Empires: World Domination for mobile:
