Today should see the release of our full paid version of the Midnight version of The Grid Calendar. We really like this product and hope that having a paid version can support it into the future.
We have mentioned it several times in the past but thought we’d break it down here, We think The Grid is a superior product to Fantastical, the app that garnered so much attention in the press at the same time as every major release of “The Grid”. While they did a good job on that product, initially it was full of a lot of holes, that Im glad that they have partially fixed. It does have a unique way of scrolling through dates and a couple neat features, but really the UI isn’t over the top attractive and stays quite Apple generic.
So here is a breakdown of what we see as benefits of each:
|The Grid Midnight||Fantastical|
|Week Strip View||X||X|
|Natural Language Entry||X|
|Time Zone Support||X|
|Text on Calendar||X|
|One Touch Filtering||X|
|Advanced Repeating Events||X|
|Multiple Event Alarms||X|
|Email and Share Events||X|
And a little secret, we have a couple things in the works for the only 2 things they have we don’t.
Thanks for considering ‘The Grid’, and if you aren’t convinced try out the FREE version and give it a try before upgrading or buying Midnight.
