Nothing beats having a live person tell you where you're going next and reminding you what's coming up later, but the disappearance of the traditional human secretary has left many professionals to managing their own schedules -- or, rather, mismanaging said schedules.

Computer apps have attempted to fill the gaps; they range from the abysmal to the pretty good, depending on how much they aspire to be the equivalent of an actual person taking care of your schedule for you. Fantastical 2 is one of those that goes the farthest -- you can even shout out appointments at it and it'll take care of the reset (provided your device supports dictation).

It's easy to add events and reminders, and offers a wide variety of ways to quickly and easily view your schedule, and drill down to the details of a particular appointment or event.

While it's only available for Apple devices (iPads, iPods, and iPhones), it is localized in English, German, French, Italian and Spanish.
