Always in search of the greatest apps, Fantastical 2 for Mac caught my eye. I've been a longtime user of the first version of Fantastical for Mac, but it was nothing more than a very clever menu bar app that displayed your calendar beautifully, and allowed you to add entries with their brilliant natural language engine.
Fantastical 2 is a completely different beast. This is a full calendar application that incorporates everything we loved about the menubar app and all the great features from the Fantastical iOS apps, into one super-calendar on the Mac.
Everything from OS X & iOS Handoff support, to geofence alerts — Fantastical 2 does it all. But I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the standout feature for me: calendar sets. You can setup specific sets of calendars (kind of like playlists) to view or hide, but what makes this brilliant is that you can have them automatically switch based on your location. Perhaps at work you'd like to only view your work-related calendars. Easy.
This is a gorgeous application that was very clearly built with a lot of thought and care. It can be difficult to make something as mundane as a calendar application really standout, but Flexbits have done it with Fantastical 2 for Mac.
