Fantastical 2.8 for iPhone and iPad Introduces Rich Notifications, iMessage Stickers & other Improvements
Flexibits today released Fantastical 2.8, a big update to the popular calendar app for iPhone and iPad. This release, which now requires iOS 10, introduces full support for rich notifications, allowing you to quickly glance into event notifications and reminders in much more detail. This is great when you have addresses set in your events, as you can pull down on the notification and get a map preview of the location without the need to open the app.
Fantastical 2.8 also ships with a sticker pack of cute animated calendar icons, some of which include callout messages while others are just random. These stickers are beautifully done and are an absolute delight to use. Those stickers up there are just some of the many included in the sticker pack. Instead of sending plain and boring messages to your contacts, you can send these beautifully illustrated stickers and get the message across in a few simple taps.
If you have an iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus, v2.8 also includes support for haptic feedback. Other improvements include improved support for Dynamic Type, more reliable Apple Watch App, and clarification regarding the use of location only when using the app.
This is a Free Update to existing users and Fantastical for iPhone is available for $4.99 on the App Store while Fantastical for iPad is available for $9.99 on the App Store.
