    Default Fantastical Calendar App Available for iOS - it Looks Fantastic

    If Apple ever took the initiative to remodel their Calendar application for iOS, I would sure love to see it look something like this. Fantastical is a calendar management application that's now available for iOS in the App Store, beginning today, for an introductory price of 50% off at $1.99.

    Fantastical uses just the right color scheme, a great-looking matte interface, fun graphics and animations, and allows you to view events in calendar view or day view. As you can see in day view, your events not only show up in text at the bottom of the screen, but they also show up in the dates above the text as color-coded bars that are intelligently sized to match the times of the events. Switching between day and calendar view is done with a downward swipe gesture.

    When you add events, by tapping on the '+' button at the top right, you’ll be able to key in the name of the event and choose the timeframe for the event. As you key in the name of the event, a great-looking animation of the letters being punched in appears and really spices up the application’s interactivity.

    You’ll be able to set your events for specific locations, choose a timeframe (or all day), repeat the event, choose an alert for the event, sync the event with Apple’s Calendar app, and add any URLs or notes that you want to the event for later viewing.

    Fantastical for iOS certainly impresses on its first day of release, but there is no iPad version of the application just yet – only an iPhone version. If you're planning on grabbing it, you should do so before the price doubles. You can grab it from this link.

    You want a basic calendar to look "great"? At a minumum, include multiple indicators for events on each day in the month view. Could be icons or text based. But when a calendar in month view shows one little indicator that something is happening, it fails the basic requirement test.

    Works ok. I replaced my Week Calendar app with it, seems to be fine. All of these calendars work off of the native one, so info stays in the phone no matter which one you choose. Interface seems nice enough, and it lets me use my custom keyboard (unlike Week Calendar). It's a bit more colorful as well. No real issues so far.

    No rolling events, no textexpander, no autocolors based on text strings, no action menu, no duration picker...
