Speaking of amazing apps that shipped yesterday, Fantastical 2 for the iPad is here. I’ve been using it for the last couple months and, of course, it’s great.

And in my time using and testing Fantastical for iPad, I realized a few things.

For one, I noticed how little I actually use a calendar on my iPad. I use to think I never used a calendar app on my iPad because there weren’t any options that I really liked (though, honestly, I do think the pre-iOS 7 iPad calendar app was pretty great). However, even with Fantastical available to me on the iPad, I just rarely ever opened it. But for people who’ve been running the iPhone version of Fantastical on their iPad at 2x, they’ll be extremely happy with the native iPad app.

Which leads me to my second realization. Using the iPad version put some context into just what an amazing app Fantastical for iPhone is. With all the extra space of the iPad’s screen, the app isn’t necessarily better than it’s iPhone sibling. And the fact that an app which has a primary function of displaying and making discoverable as much relevant information as possible, would do as good a job of that on the iPhone as it does on the iPad, is a testament to the former’s design quality.

Needless to say, if you’re in want of a great calendar app on the iPad, Fantastical is a great choice.
