Gotta love the style and grace of how Flexibits handles updating for the big fall releases. I somehow missed it when it went live a day or so ago, but I'm the new Fantastical 2.10 for iPhone — and Apple Watch — and Fantastical 2.10 for iPad now, and I plan on diving into its Shortcuts over the weekend.

Get an iPhone SE with Mint Mobile service for $30/mo

From Flexibits:

Siri Shortcuts allow you to bring Fantastical directly into custom Siri phrases and other shortcuts. Here are some examples of what you can do with Fantastical's shortcuts:

  • Set a phrase such as "Hey Fantastical" to automatically open Fantastical to quickly begin creating a new event or reminder using Fantastical's parser
  • Show upcoming events or reminders as part of a custom shortcut using the Shortcuts app
  • Jump to a specific reminders list by creating a button on the home screen with the Shortcuts app
  • And more: You can see all of Fantastical's available shortcuts in the Settings app under Fantastical

"Hey, Siri, Cinnamon Toast Crunch me!"

"Okay, I'll remind you to set up shortcuts and share them with @macguitar."


Here's the full list for those who're into such things:

  • Full support for iOS 12 and watchOS 5
  • Support for Siri Shortcuts: Quickly add new events, view upcoming events and reminders, and view calendars or reminder lists with Siri Shortcuts
  • Updated interactive notifications: Snooze alerts for events and reminders directly from iOS notifications
  • Support for Infograph watch faces
  • Support for Siri watch face
  • Fantastical 2 now requires iOS 11 or later and watchOS 4 or later
  • Various fixes and improvements
