Fantastical 2 for Mac is the best Mac app

It's not everyday you see me discussing the Mac here, but sometimes an app hits the ballpark so remarkably I'm compelled to share its highlights. Fantastical 2 for iPhone was released on October 2013; the dedicated iPad version arrived almost 1 year ago – March 28 – and we've been eager for a newer Mac version ever since.

Fantastical for Mac was still a superb application despite trailing behind the changes instituted by Yosemite and functionality from its iOS counterparts. Then Michael Simmons – co-founder of Flexibits, the company that makes Fantastical – asked on Twitter for the app's biggest fan, I [promptly made myself available]( "Phillip Gruneich no Twitter: "@macguitar GIVE ME!" .") because I knew what he was talking about.

When I opened the beta for Fantastical 2, I got dazzled by its beauty. Fantastical 2 was restrained to the menubar no more, it became a full-blown calendar that put Apple's to shame. Everything about Fantastical 2 feels like Yosemite reached its peak, even while apps are still adapting tardily to the OS' concept. The speed, the interactions, the cues; Fantastical 2 for Mac elevates the platform onto a level I don't think even Apple considered possible.

Fantastical for iOS empowers some of my favorite actions here and the previous Mac version was one of the first apps I acquired. I'm not a GTD example nor my agenda requires the sort of organization Fantastical provides, however the new version entices me to use my calendar further.

Fantastical 2 for Mac is the best calendar for the Mac and also the best app you can get on your Mac today; available in the App Store and the official site for introductory price of $39.99.
