Update (10/22 10:10am):
- Flexibits has just updated Fantastical 2 for iOS to include a Today view Fantastical widget and more. Full details here.
- 9to5Toys Specials is offering a “The Mac To The Future Bundle” for $29.99 with as much as $963 worth of Mac apps. One of those apps is Fantastical, which will run you $20 on its own, along with Capo 3 For Mac, AfterShot Pro 2, Lucid and more.
The popular calendar and reminders app Fantastical 2 is getting even deeper discounts today. Previously dropped to $5 and $10, the iPhone version is now available for $2.99 (Reg. $5) and the iPad version is $7.99 (Reg. $9.99). This is the first time we have seen the iPhone version hit $2.99 since February and only the second time we have seen the iPad version go as low as $7.99 since release. At one time, they were as much as $9.99 and $19.99 respectively.
The award-winning, best-selling calendar app has been redesigned and reimagined for your iPad with iOS 7. With the convenient Fantastical Dashboard, you’ll add, view, and interact with your events and reminders with ease.
