Cre­ate de­tailed events us­ing nat­u­ral lan­guage in Fan­tas­ti­cal

While iOS comes with a per­fectly us­able Cal­en­dar app, there are some more pow­er­ful al­ter­na­tives. One of our favourites is Fan­tas­ti­cal (£3.99) an app that sits along­side Cal­en­dars and Re­minders on your iPhone of­fer­ing a huge range of ad­di­tional fea­tures. The most im­pres­sive thing about Fan­tas­ti­cal is the ‘parser’ which en­ables you to cre­ate events and re­minders us­ing nat­u­ral lan­guage. Rather than writ­ing ‘Meet­ing’, and set­ting the lo­ca­tion and time man­u­ally, you can write: “Meet­ing in Star­bucks at 2pm on Mon­day” to cre­ate an event with those de­tails.

This alone is worth the ask­ing price, but there are a lot of other great fea­tures in Fan­tas­ti­cal. It in­te­grates with your Cal­en­dar app so all your events ap­pear au­to­mat­i­cally in­side Fan­tas­ti­cal, and items you cre­ate in Fan­tas­ti­cal ap­pear in­side Cal­en­dar/Re­minders. This in­te­gra­tion makes it easy to switch be­tween the two apps with­out wor­ry­ing about items go­ing miss­ing. Lucy Hat­ter­s­ley
