Redesigned calendar app offers reminders, new week view
Flexibits' latest app, Fantastical 2, has been released for iOS today. An overall revamping of Fantastical, an iOS and Mac calendar app, Fantastical 2 offers a more intuitive user experience and several additional features also added to its predecessor. New parser features, such as alert and reminder creations, can be executed with succinct key terms at the start of a sentence such as 'reminder', 'todo', or 'alert'. Maps are now included with event details, showing locations. Other updates to Fantastical 2 include a new week view, a dictation function for creating new events or reminders, background app updating, and more. Available for $3 on iTunes, Fantastical 2 requires iOS 7 or later.
DxO Labs' DxO Perspective for OS X free to download until Nov. 3
DxO Labs, an image processing developer, has released its perspective and horizon image-correction software, DxO Perspective for Mac OS X. Its system applies anchor points directly on an image, offering geometric corrections to photographers both novice and advanced. A main feature is its Rectangle tool, that can re-establish a full-frontal view of the object when a photo contains two perspective flaws. In its eight-point correction mode, DxO Perspective can address more complex perspectives with its independent placing of horizontal and vertical guidelines, allowing for precise corrections on multiple planes. Regularly priced at $20, DxO Perspective is currently available for free until November 3, 2013 and can be downloaded from the App Store.
