Want Fantastical 2 for iPad for FREE? Enter to win a copy now!



I wish to have Fantastical 2 on my iPad because first of all it has that dark mode that is simply AMAZING and I love it. Second of all it is like the calendar app and the reminders app combined that is way more better than having two apps. All in all it is AMAZING and I WANT IT!

I use Fantastical on my iPhone and on my Mac, but I don't use it much on my iPad because of the 2x of the iPhone interface. I'd love to speed up my workflow using the "big screen"! ;)

I've heard so many great things about this app and I've never had a premium calendar alternative on my iPad. I live on my iPad so much, I think this would be a valuable addition to my app arsenal.

Been finally getting my calendar on Mac set up to be used much more. Still lacking and don't like the interface nearly as much as in the fantastical screenshots.

Fantastical on my mac and especially on my iPhone have massively helped me to get organised at university and so I would love to have fantastical on my number one uni device, the iPad, to get more organised and get those grades!

I've been a fan of Fantastical 2 on iPhone since launch, and I rely on it to keep me from pulling out what's left of my hair trying to keep organized. Also, I just can't afford to buy it right now! :(

I like a copy of fantastical 2 because I need a more productive calendar that keeps me in touch with my busy schedules!

I don't need a copy of it because I already bought it for my iPhone and my iPad. I just wanted to say how much I like it!

I would love to have fantastical based on your reviews of the product. I trust in your reviews.

I absolutely love the app on my iPhone and how it integrates with reminders. I would love it even more on my iPad :-)

I'm a user of fantastical for iPhone since the first version, and I'd love to be able to use it on iPad as well :)

I bought Fantastical for iPad when it was on sale recently and find it much easier to read my events than any other app I've tried. I'd love to get a free copy to give to my SigOther.

I use the iPhone version everyday but have not grabbed the ipad version yet. I have used a lot of calendar apps and fantastical is the best of the bunch. I would love to have the ipad version too.

I have been reading reviews about Fantastical 2 here in iMore and it got me curious. The stock Calendar app of my iOS device is just not enough for me. I tried to look for 'free' calendar apps but they did not satisfy my needs. I really want to try Fantastical 2 esp now that it is redesigned for iOS 7. If I can just afford the iPad version, I would have bought it eons ago. I'm hoping I'll win this so I can finally try this great app. Thanks in advance for this opportunity iMore!

It will help me remember my wife's birthday & ensure I never get a black eye from her again

On my phone I tended to draw with my thumb.Whereas the moment I came to know about ipad I think I can use my every fingers.
Moreover I see myself ipad as wonderful drawing medium,but I am at a greatloss and I cant pay for it.

This would be great as it would allow me to organize my schedule in a way that is clean and better than what iCal offers, pick me imore....

I've heard the wonder and awe of people who use F2 and I'd like to try something different and more efficient than Google Calendar. Thank you.

I'm using the iphone version on my iPad. The iPad version would be excellent!

Thanks for the chance to win.

AHHHHHH I need! Well, I really want. I use Fantastical for iPhone and Mac and it is by far the best calendar replacement app out there. With v2 integrating reminders Fantastical just got even better.

Finally jumped into the iPad world and wanting a good calendar app that really fits my needs and te capability of this device.

I've heard so much about Fantastical but have never tried it. My favorite iPhone calendar app is not available for the iPad yet so this would be a perfect time to snag me as a fan. :-)

If you have Fantastical 2 on your iPhone, Fanstastical 1.3 on OS X, you definitely need the iPad version to make the suite complete.

I would love to win a copy of Fantastical 2 for iPad. I have spent upwards of $50 on various iOS calendar apps, and none have really "fit" with my workflow. I decided to stop throwing away money and just live with the best of the bunch, but since that time have read so many great things about Fantastical. If I won a copy of the iPad version and it's half as great as everyone says, I would instantly buy the iPhone version too.

I've tried probably well over 20 different calendar apps for the iPhone and iPad and until using Fantastical 2 for the iPhone, nothing came even close to the experience I was looking for. F2 does everything I need and more and because of that, I've recommended it to dozens of friends who have all purchased it and like it just as much.

Fantastical looks like an amazing app. It works well and is extremely clean design wise. I am hesitant to pay $10 even though it will probably be worth it.

I know, this might be a comment you guys hear really often. But Fantastical, is the calendar app Apple should have included with iOS 7. I have been using Fantastical on my iPhone since they released the Fantastical 2 for iPhone.

I never downloaded the original Fantastical, but the new version was totally worth it.

Winning the Fantastical 2 for iPad would enable me to synch my activities list with the Fantastical 1.3.13 app used on my MacBook Air.

I would love one for my shoes business , it would be great to use for keep stock of my stuff , paycheck , etc.. It would be helpful for me .

Fantastical is the best calendar app on any Apple device, iOS & OS X.
Before Fantastical I did not use the Calendar app or any other app because it was really painful to enter info.. Not with Fantastical!
I have it on my iPhone and Mac, I'd love to have it on my iPad :)

Fantastical on iPhone actually got me to use a calendar and reminders list. Now I can't get through the day without it. Having Fantastical on my iPad would help the whole family keep up with schedules and chores/reminders!

Apps are made for the good of man. I feel like I'm a better person because of it. I live healthier, get a better social life and keep my dearest people close to me. I'm just glad we all are having better days after the creation called Fantastical.

Thank you Flexibits

I would like the Fantastical app for iPad because on my iPhone I just have to write a natural sentence and it add the right bits in the right places. I need this for the iPad.

Would love to try, buy have been putting it off because I know if I buy it for my phone I will end up buying the other too and my wife would shoot me, knocking off 14.99 would help a lot

Fantastical looks great, but the price is a tough sell (especially since I have bought Week Cal HD and Calendars 5 already). I really want that darker theme on my iPad mini, and a calendar that goes way above and beyond the stock app.

I had Fantastical 2 on my IP5 and loved it. That is the one app I so truly miss. I am now on the HTC One, but I have a Ipad. The app is well worth every penny. Thanks!

I'd absolutely love Fantastical 2 for iPad. I work at a rather large university and between meetings with both current and prospective students, class schedules and projects, a great calendar app for my iPad would be fantastic(al).

I'd love to have Fantastical 2 on my iPad. I already have it on my Mac and on my iPhone. It is by far the best calendar app that I ever used. Gorgeous design with a lot of power users functions and at the same time very simple.

Awesome giveaway! I'm a Fantastical user for iPhone and Mac but couldn't afford the iPad version when it was released.

Thanks again for the awesome giveaway!!

I've been using fantastical since it first came out on iPhone and I just can't find anything like it on iPad. It my number one productivity app and would give my iPad the the punch it lacks right now!!

I would like to have Fantastical2 for ipad because I already use it in my iphone and it has made adding searching and editing events and invitations so much easier that going back to the stock calendar app in the ipad now just seems strange

I use Fantastical 2 on my iPhone everyday. I would love to have it on my iPad to manage my calendars for school.

I just started my life as a PhD student and need to be organized. But since I'm as well poor as a phd student fantastical was no option for me so far. Please help me out :)

I use fanastical on my iphone for managing my location reminders I have set up as we'll as all my calendar appointments. This is by far the best Callander app available

I have Fantastical on my iMac and MacBook Air. It sure would be nice to have it on my iPad as well for a unified calendar experience.

cuz it's frickin free, man

Also I have it on the ol ifone & it's like the bomb


I am in need of Fantastical 2 for iPad because I'm tired of using the default calendar app. Fantastical looks awesome!

Well its simple. My Fantastical 2 for iPhone is lonely and is seeking an elder brother in Fantastical 2 for the iPAD. I'm trying to unite a family here, please help me out :)

I'd love to get a copy of fantastical for my iPad. I use the iPhone version and I don't there is a better calendar application available on iPad

I missed the wheel thing. I heard the slice of bread was great. Regrettably both life altering events were before my time. This time I shall not be denied! Please god of fortune rain on me one time!

I love Fantastical 2 for my iPhone and would love to have it for the iPad. If you're listening Flexbits I'll make a deal with you. Force iMore to give me a free version for iPad and I'll buy the Mac version to complete the trifecta.

I have the mac and iPhone version. The iPad version would complete my collection of a great calendar app

Pick me!! I have the iPhone version and just got a new iPad mini. It saves me so much time over the stock calender app. Productivity FTW!

i'm new Masters Student in finance, and I should admit if i kind of Clumsy and Always have trouble in my schedule... maybe it is good if i have chance to win one copy so i can Use F2 to Manage my Class schedule and course - anyway :) thank you Imore

I would love to have Fantastical on my iPad. I LOVE it on my iPhone and want to experience the same seamless experience on my iPad.

Fantastical 2 on my iPAD...uhh "Mock? YEAH!!" I need it to help keep track of all my major appoint-a-mentos like taking out the trash and reminder to buy more beef jerky...oh and the important stuff like film shoots for work. When Flexibits and iMore team up they are a force to be reckoned with. I'm talking like Wilt Chamberlin with the ladies mixed with the voice of Fergie...magic.

I would love Fantastical 2 because I need a better Calendar app than the one provided. I feel Fantastical 2 is the best calendar app ever.!!

Sent from the iMore App

I want it cuz this app is incredible! The ability to dictate and have it sync so seamlessly between a bunch of different calendars is absolutely wonderful. I lean heavily on voice dictation partly because I think it's cool and partly because I need to minimize typing to alleviate my extreme RSI. Fantastical does a much better job parsing complex voice dictation than Siri does

I love the feature of using natural language to do everyday features and daily tasks on my iPad! I want this app!

I would love this! I am currently a full time masters student working on a teaching degree and I have 2 other jobs outside of school and my life is so busy! I need a better calendar app than the stock iOS one to actually be and feel more productive!

My 4 kids, wife, and jobs keep me busy that this would help make my life better if I can get it for my ipad

Fantastic 2 really impresses me. It is definitely an improvement from the standard calendar app that comes with the iPad. It utilizes the entire screen and has numerous options. I am impressed with all of the options and the ease in which you can enter appointments, dates and times.
Thanks for this contest.

I'm telling you what, I absolutely cannot live without an easy to use, easy to read easy to manipulate calendar. This is it

I switched to Fantastical for the iPhone a while ago and never looked back. It's an awesome app and I'd love to also use it on the iPad.

Already use on iP5. Would be Fantasticle to have on my iPad Mini, to list band booking and rehersal dates, to track and list for my band mates.

Please, please, please - I need calendar help with my multiple calendars!
Any consideration would be great! I never mastered Calendar 101.

I want Fantastical on my iPad because I already love it on my iPhone and imagine it would be that much more awesome on iPad :D

As a teenager in high school, I have my plate full to the brim. Homework, sports, and now a YouTube channel. ;) Having a great calendar would help me to organize my life in a way that nothing else can. It would help me stay organized in everything that I do in my busy life. Thanks for giving me the chance to win.

I need Fantastical on the iPad, because it would help me become more productive and manage time more efficiently. It works really well for me on the iphone and I think it would help the same on the iPad.

I would love to win a copy of fantasical for iPad cause I use my iPad and calendar almost everyday for my home business and I think that it would be a better calendar then the stock calendar

The words Fantastic and Calendar merged into ON WORD!
And on the iPAD!!
And for the amazing price of FREE!!!

Mind = Amazed!
(so in Fantastical speech: Mindazed!)

I've been putting off Fantastical for a while now hoping for a universal update (already own the iPhone version) and I use that everyday, and would love to be able to make use of it on my ipad also.

I am a father of three children that is headed back to school to become a teacher after losing my job to a bankrupt company which I worked for. It's a fantastical venture with fantastical opportunities and what better app to support my busy upcoming schedule than with fantastical 2.... A fantastic tool for a fantastic venture!

Enter Me! :) I am a teacher and it really makes scheduling all my different things easier!

I'm a student and I want Fantastical for the iPad because not only will it help me juggle through my very busy schedule, I know that it will help me reduce the stress in my studies.

I'm in Middle School and run a calendar with all of our special events! Fantastical will help me manage those calendars!! Please!!

I need to complete the Fatastical suite across my device. I have Fantastical on my iPhone and MBP, but it is missing on my iPad.

I’ve read so many thing about Fantastical. Since there are no trials in the App Store a free copy would be nice.

Because I can wait for you to pick me until my finals are due.

(Well, actually because I love Fantastical. I have it on my iPhone and it is pretty solid. I like the natural language input and how it mix reminders and calendar. And it looks pretty. Who can say no to beautiful apps?)

I *love* Fantastical for iPhone. So much that I've upgraded to version 2 the second it came out and bought also the Mac version.

My iPhone's battery life has been abysmal recently, and I found myself grabbing my retina iPad mini for almost everything I was doing with my iPhone before, including scheduling and reminders. I'd love to have that awesome Fantastical experience on my new go to device as well.

I am using it on iPhone and now at work I use my iPad to do many stuffs like in meeting I use Notability to take notes and record meetings. If I have Fantastical on iPad would be great as it will ease my iPad workflow better on iPad. Thanks

I have it on my Mac, I have it on my iPhone. And if I win this one, I can say: "Oh Fantastical for iPad, you complete me!".

My calendar is something I use every day obviously. It's even more important to me because it keep my whole company on the same page. This app is great for my phone, just waiting to pull the trigger on my iPad. This would be great.

I'm already using Fantastical on my iPhone and it's the best thing ever! I use and rely on it so much it's on my dock.. Would love love love to have it on the iPad now that it's available.
I love that I'm able to handle reminders within Fantastical. Best feature ever! Plus points for the awesome design as well! :D

Hey #fantastical2 looks pretty awesome, especially after the update to the standard apple calendar app, hopefully I win!

Fantastical 2 just seems like the "must have" app that any busy social media marketer would need. I would definitely tell the world about it and why they need it, too!

I would love Fantastical because it will allow me to organise my day like never before. The standard calendar app just isn't enough for the needs I require. This app has all I need in one!

I love fantastical but have recently hit some hard economic times. I simply can't afford the ipad version, as much as I would like to. Please consider gifting me with one of the codes. I would truly be thankful.

I dont have an iPad yet, but will be an owner of one soon. Fantastical2 would be a great app to start off with.

I love my Fantastical (iPhone) and it was all iMore's fault for introducing it to my life. Now I want to experience Fantastical the way it's supposed to be on my iPad. I would really appreciate it if you can shoot me one. THANK YOU!

Fantastical 2 is what I need
It'll help me schedule my calendar with ease,
An awesome app I hope to win
If given a code by my iMore friends,
It's the best calendar I've seen thus far
When they came out with this they raised the bar,
So I hope to get it from the App Store,
By a generous gift from my friends at iMore :)

I bought Fantastical 2 not long after it was released. And now I'm getting sick of seeing the blown-up UI on my iPad. I certainly could benefit from the native one.

Would love to try Fantastical 2 for the iPad! Been using and loving the iPhone version ever since its initial release!

I need it because Fantastical is much better than iOS calendar app and I am going to improve my way of organizing my time, my day and my life. And it'd look awesome in my iPad!

I am a medical school student and I have been searching for a great calendar for a long time , I have a packed schedule and I need more organization , my friends have recommended fantastical for me .

Fantastical works great for me on my iPhone. Sure it would be awesome on my iPad!

Between rewiring homes, installing new electerical panels, and meeting with inspectors and customers, Fastical will really help me make the most of my time.

For my wife, please! Totally ready for her to FINALLY find a calendar app she likes. Seriously. Enough of the 'new app every month' stuff already!

Fantastical 2 for ipad will make a twosome with fantastical on my Macbook Pro retina!

Fantastical 2 is the missing piece in my plan to unleash my army of trained marmosets on the world. Hopefully I'll win it so I can properly schedule their deployment.

It is one if the cleanest calendars ever! The classy layout is a major bonus. I can open the app and show it to my friends and immediately they understand the layout. Cannot do that with most apps. I use it on iPhone but a calendar should be used on both iPad and iPhone. That's why I'd like a copy of F2 for iPad! Thanks!

I want his because I am a person who is currently using the native calendar app and I want to see what I can make a truly good calendar app do for me!

I still have not recovered from the heartbleed bug fiasco. So many app logins to fix after changing Google, Facebook, Pinterest and DropBox logins. A free dose of the highly rated Fantastical 2 for iPad will brighten up my day tremendously. I can really use some natural language magic to ease up the hurt. Thanks for fantastic giveaway!

I have been a long time user of Fantastical on my MacPro, on my iPhone 5s and most recently on my iPad Mini, (it's the iPhone version with a large black border around it as its universal) , which seems to get the most use for me as I am on the go these days trying to find gainful employment setting up tons of to-do's and appointments. I am very anxious to have the native app on my iPad but cannot afford it at the moment. I figured since I have paid for it on my other devices I would give this a shot and keep my fingers crossed.

Thanks iMore for great news on my favourite gadgets and good luck to everybody!

I'm a high school student and I use many tools to keep myself organized. Fantastical 2 for iPad would be the cherry on top of the cake. I currently use any.do and cal, but Fantastical's U/I, design, and ecosystem seem to be more suitable for me. Winning a copy of it would be very convenient!
Thanks Flexibits and iMore for this giveaway!

Fantastical 2 is the best Calendar app. I already own the iPhone and Mac version. I wish I could complete the trifecta.

Hi! I am studying English just right now. I have to wake up at 5 am due my Englis course start at 7 am each Wednesday. I also work and I have a lot of meetings etc. So I need a friend - those super calendar!

I love using Fantastical on my iPhone, and I'd love to give it a try on my iPad! I'm always entering in new appointments for school, work and more so having it on my iPad too would be great.

My 10-year-old grandson is on the heart transplant list and Fantastical will help us maintain the strict schedule we help him follow now and especially after his surgery.

I use Fantasical on my iPhone and Mac daily. On the iPhone it is so much more useful than the stripped down stock Calendar App. On my Mac it is a great way to quickly glance at my schedule as an overlay of what I am doing already. I've been meaning to give the iPad version a try but I might as well see if I can win a copy! Great developers
