Fantastical 2 is my favorite calendar app for the Mac, and lives in my menu bar. I love being able to tap the menu bar, and see my appointments at a glance from anywhere on my Mac. There’s also something about its natural language parsing that still gets me a bit giddy, even after using Fantastical for a few years. Today, the app got even better.
Flexibits just added Exchange support, along with a long list of other additions. You could always view your Exchange appointments by tying Fantastical to your Mac calendar, but now you can access a host of Exchange functionality, including the ability to respond to invitations.
If you’re a Google user, you get some love, too. If you have a Google Apps account, you can see Google Hangout links. In addition, Push for Google accounts shows changes immediately, and you’ll receive suggestions from Google Contacts when adding invitees.
I ran the update, and the new changes were applied pretty seamlessly. When the app relaunched after the update, I was prompted to add my Exchange account, and to receive the Google Contacts suggestions.
Those are just a few of the long list of improvements. To see the entire list, check out the entry on the Flexibits blog.
