Back in October of last year, one the most popular Calendar alternatives for the iOS 7 platform, known as Fantastical 2, was released to the public with a new eye-candy user interface and features that the stock Calendar application lacked. On Wednesday, the third-party calendar application received a major update with a wide range of new features added. Version 2.1 of the application is now available to be downloaded.

Fantasical 2's version 2.1 update brings features such as snooze options, contact and location searching, more notification options, keyboard shortcuts, and numerous improvements to the application's user interface. Flexbits, the development team behind the application, also flaunts a huge number of bug fixes for the stability and usability of the application.

As a bonus, Flexbits is making Fantastical 2 for iPhone and iPod touch 50% off for a limited time to attract customers after this large update it's now only $4.99 instead of the usual $9.99. The iPad version of the application is 33% off (making it $9.99), as is the Mac version (which is also $9.99).

Existing users of Fantastical 2 for iOS will find this update under the Updates tab in the App Store application. Alternatively, you can download the latest version of Fantastical 2 for $4.99 for a limited time from this App Store link.
