Fantastical 2 is one of the premiere iOS 7 calendar applications, and today it's getting an update to make it even more awesome. Top of the list are improvements to the notifications, which now have a sound, and new icon badges options for today's remaining events, today's due reminders, and incomplete reminders. It doesn't stop there either. Here's what else to expect from this latest version:

  • Adding a phone number as a location shows a call button in event details
  • Double-tapping a date picker switches between showing every minute and every five minutes
  • Added a "reminder" and "due" parameter to the URL handler. Example: fantastical2://parse?sentence=Buy%20milk&reminder=1&due=yyyy-MM-dd%20HH:mm
  • Additional parser improvements
  • Performance improvements for iPhone 4
  • Updated time zone database
  • Fixed a display issue with certain Asian languages
  • Fixed Dynamic Type not respecting large type settings from Accessibility
  • Fixed an issue where calendar colors could appear too dark or too light
  • Fixed an issue when editing events with a custom time zone
  • Fixed addresses in notes not opening in Google Maps when they should
  • Various fixes and improvements

Flexibits says that this update should hopefully fix many of the issues reported to them by Fantastical users. Hopefully that's the case for you, but if you've not yet pulled the trigger the good news is that the launch sale price of $2.99 is still in effect. Let me know if this takes care of any of your own bugs, or if it's just more awesome for you to use!
