Fantastical is a Mac app, which allows you to create calendar events using natural language. Fantastical is a calendar application for your Mac that leverages iCal, Entourage, and Outlook, letting you interact with your calendar in a whole new way. The event list and calendar are simple to use and more importantly, beautifully designed, which comes in handy when you’re looking at something boring like an event.

Fantastical has a killer feature, which has the ability to do natural language parsing. Behind Fantastical is an intelligent engine that lets you type the way you want without learning special syntax. Not only does Fantastical recognize a wide variety of dates and times, it handles locations and people in your Address Book!

You can use Fantastical with iCal, BusyCal, Outlook and Entourage. You can even use Google Calendar or Yahoo! Calendar accounts: simply add them to iCal and you’re all set.

To create an event with Fantastical:

  • Open Fantastical by clicking the menu bar icon or opening the app from the Applications folder.
  • Type in your event details and press Enter

… Thats it. Your calendar entry is made and you’re back to what you were doing with a shiny new event in your calendar!

For example, you plan to have Dinner with Steve at 8pm on Dec 20th, just go to Fantastical and type in “Dinner with Steve on Dec 20th from 7 PM“. Fantastical is intelligent enough to comprehend what you’ve written and it creates a calendar entry in the calendar for the Dinner with Steve on Dec 20th from 7 PM. Fantastical will even recognize the location of your event and let you invite people from your Address Book to the event.

The event listing in your Fantastical calendar is so easy that you can easily locate all your events or specific events. You can also search in your calendar to locate an event – past, present and future : Instantly.

Fantastical can automatically add alarms to all of your new events. You can even customize your alarm settings based on all-day events or timed events. Fantastical uses CalDAV Sync. Just add your calendars to iCal and Fantastical will automatically sync your events, keeping them up-to-date – even when iCal isn’t running!

 

Fantastical makes it very easy and convenient to create events. Try using it once and you’ll find it difficult to live without it! The looks are equally impressive.
