Replace Calendar with Fantastical on your iPhone

Apple’s built-in Calendar app for iPhone is fine, but I prefer Fantastical, a $5 alternative from Flexibits. Because the app can access your iPhone’s calendars, it essentially offers complete integration with any calendaring system your iPhone can use or sync with—including iCloud, Google, Yahoo, and Exchange calendars. I reviewed the app in November of last year, awarding it four mice.

In the video above, I offer up a quick tour of Fantastical’s core features. It features a scrolling list of upcoming appointments, instead of a more traditional grid approach. The app allows you to create appointments using natural language, and handles the scheduling automatically. And it offers fast built-in search, too.

Fantastical for iPhone requires iOS 5 or later.
