Fantastical 2 for Mac review: The calendar app you've been waiting for

Fantastical 2 by Flexibits is a full screen calendar replacement for Mac with an all new design for OS X Yosemite and all new features that you won't find anywhere else.

A Notification Center widget, faster and more reliable sync, full time zone support, and "calendar sets" round out the highlights. Taken together, they make Fantastical 2 far more than a menu bar companion to OS X's built in Calendar app — they make it a full-on calendar app in its own right.

Twitter will soon allow specific location tagging with help from Foursquare

Twitter is working with Foursquare to turn your location from a town name to a specific location.

Users will soon be able to tag locations on Twitter with more information than just a generic location thanks to Foursquare.
