Fantastical for Mac updated with improved performance for large calendars, other fixes



Fantastical 2 for Mac was updated to version 2.3.4 on Wednesday with a handful of goodies and improvements.

A few things from the changelog jumped out to me. First, support for new login requirements from Google was added. While this isn’t that important right now, it ensures that future Google calendars work with the app.

For someone with a large calendar full of repeating events, endless dinner parties, or just a busy calendar, performance should be improved in this version of Fantastical. There were also a number of bug fixes for invitations, Facebook events, and recurring events to ensure that your favorite calendar app continues to run smoothly.
