Fantastical 2.5 for Mac adds the integration with the even scheduling service, the ability to propose new times for events from the calendar app, and much more.

  • Added ability to enable or disable multiple calendars at once when editing calendar sets by selecting multiple rows
  • Pressing the option key while editing the start time of an event will keep the end time the same
  • Selecting an event in Day or Week view and pressing control-option-up/down arrow adjusts the start time of the event and pressing control-shift-up/down arrow adjusts the end time

  • Fixed an issue where dragging from OmniFocus wouldn’t be shown at the correct time in Day or Week view

In Fantastical 2.5, you can add your Meetup account to the Preferences > Accounts, and then you can view and respond to your Meetup event directly from this app. If you want to propose a new time for an invitation, you can click the Propose button in the event and arrange a new time to the organizer. The organizer can choose to accept or decline the suggested changes directly if he or she also has a copy of Fantastical.

This update is free for existing Fantastical 2 users. New customers need to pay $49.99 for the Fantastical 2.5 app through the Mac App Store or from the Flexibits Store site. An iPhone version is available for $4.99, while the iPad version is priced at $9.99.

To install Fantastical 2.5 via Mac App Store, launch the App Store app on your Mac, type Fantastical in the search box, then click the button next to the Fantastical app icon, and complete the purchase to allow the installation. The older version of Fantastical will be updated to the latest version if you have installed this app.

If your Fantastical app is expired and you don’t want to renew your subscription, you may consider to uninstall Fantastical from your Mac. Related tutorial is listed here.
