Hands on with Fantastical 2's great new Apple Watch app

Susie Ochs | June 4, 2015
The first batch of Apple Watch apps were pretty underwhelming, but some diamonds are starting to emerge from the rough. Fantastical 2 for iPhone got an update Wednesday to version 2.3, including the natural language calendar's companion app for Apple Watch.

Fantastical 2's Glance can show your next appointment or a list of everything you've got on tap that day. (You toggle between them in the Apple Watch settings in Fantastical for the iPhone, or turn the Glance on and off in the Apple Watch app for iPhone.) I love how the Glance shows a little graphical timeline of your day with your appointments blocked off and color-coded to match your calendars. This can be handy to see where your free chunks of time are, and figuring out you better get lunch now because your afternoon doesn't have any open blocks of time.

Fantastical 2 for iPhone is $5 — Dan Frakes gave it 4.5 mice upon its release in late 2013, and it's only gotten better since.
