Another tool for streamlining calendars
Well hello, reporters. I’ve had Fantastical on my computer for quite a while. To the point that I didn’t remember why I had it, to be honest. But last week, Jeremy Caplan released a slew of calendar tools on his famous Wonder Tools blog, and voila!
Fantastical uses “natural language” processing to create a calendar event from a phrase like “meeting with Susan 11am Friday.” This is something that Google Calendar does not have integrated, surprisingly (though I have a feeling they might do it soon and call it AI).
In any case, Fantastical is an unfortunately Mac-only app that does this very well. Some other calendar apps also have this “natural language” capability, but it depends on what you use.
