Fantastical 2 ($9.99) Fantastical 2, one of the most popular productivity apps, elegantly combines your reminders and calendar into a single interface called the Fantastical Dashboard. It's divided into three areas: DayTicker, a scrolling week-view pane across the top; a scrolling color-coded list at left that combines appointments and dated reminders that you can check off with a single tap; and a month-view calendar on the right side. Swipe down on the DayTicker for a full-screen week view. Tapping on an event or a reminder brings up a pane on the right side that shows more detail. You can add reminders and appointments just by speaking. Fantastical works with the Apple Watch and syncs with iCloud, Google Calendar, and Microsoft Exchange.
