Fantastical for Mac gets better sync features

A year ago Fantastical for Mac 2.0 arrived, and I’ve been using it as my Mac calendar app ever since. On Wednesday developer Flexibits released version 2.2, which adds native support for account syncing.

Because Fantastical now supports CalDAV syncing natively, it’s added support for more complex server-based tasks such as person look-ups, invitation responses, and checking for meeting availability. I use Google Calendar as my calendar server, and now Fantastical is more capable of interacting with its more advanced features.

That’s not all, according to Flexibits:

Some of the other new features in 2.2 include printing (with multiple, beautiful layouts), a second time zone time line (to let you quickly view other time zones), multiple selection (to move and delete multiple items at once), and the ability to start the week or month views on the current day or week.

Fantastical is $50 and is available from the Mac App Store or directly from Flexibits.
