Introducing Fantastical for iPad — A Killer New Calendar App

Share This:

Fantastical is my favourite iPhone calendar app by a long shot, so it’s with great pleasure that I share the release of the Fantastical for iPad.

All of the things I love about the Fantastical suite of apps are present here:

- the horizontal scrolling DayTicker
- the tidy list of upcoming events
- full Reminders support
- natural language parsing for events and tasks

The whole experience has been reimagined for the iPad as a dynamic dashboard. Fantastical for iPad looks similar enough to the iPhone and Mac versions to be familiar, but its design seems to have taken account that we use tablets differently than other devices.

The real standout feature for me here is the way you can pull the DayTicker down and turn it into a week view. I live and die by week views at my current position, and having one appear so dynamically is simply genius.

I still have to get my hands on the app, but I plan to write it up in a week or two. In the mean time, you can get your hands on Fantastical for iPad for $10 on the App Store.
