If I’ve ever felt there was a particular blind spot with Macs it was the lack of a lightweight, yet powerful calendar application. While I am still kicking the tires, I have a feeling that I’ve finally found what I’ve been looking for with Fantastical1.
Quick capture is essential for me and I am now one keystroke and a quick sentence away from throwing something on my schedule. I’ve only been playing with it for a day, but I can’t see myself going back to anything I’ve tried anytime soon.
If, like me, you mainly use your calendar for entry and a review of your day or week, I doubt you’ll find a better alternative. Fantastical is a slick app and well worth a look (and the $15 dollars if you like the demo).
