One of the great things about Lotus Agenda, the old DOS application i have talked about many times, was that you could just type ordinary English expressions, like "meeting with Jim on Monday," and it would understand how to translate it into a calendar item. I have just discovered Fandastical from Flexbits for Mac OS X. It does the same, using the built-in calendar (iCal), BusyCal, Entourage, or Outlook for the results. It also does alarms and syncs even when iCal is not running. It's available as a 14 day trial. After that it costs $19.99. I am trying it out, and so far I am impressed.
