Fantastical and Gmail are adapted for iOS 12 and the XS / XS Max iPhones; Shazam is updated for macOS Mojave

Three very popular apps have received interesting updates in the past few days [Mac] App Store. Shall we take a look at them?


The calendar app – which delighted me in our comparison made a few months ago – got a good update to stay in tune with the news introduced in iOS 12, watchOS 5 and macOS Mojave 10.14.

In the case of iOS, we have full support for Siri Shortcuts. The command “Hey Fantastical” opens the app for you to start dictating the creation of a new event or reminder; custom commands can be configured for the app to show a specific event, and you can even go directly to specific lists via a special button created in the Shortcuts app (Shortcuts).

We also support interactive notifications and several new features on the Apple Watch. Fantastical now supports Siri’s display and new displays Infograph, showing events and reminders on the home screen of the watch; finally, we also support the new Apple Watch Series 4 screen sizes.

In macOS, the developer Flexibits tried to adapt the widget “Today” (“Today”) of the app for macOS Mojave dark mode and also brought some bug fixes.

All versions of Fantastical – for iPhone, iPad and Mac – have been updated; they can be purchased on the App Store for R $ 10, R $ 17 and R $ 130, respectively.


Everyone’s favorite email client has also made changes to Apple’s mobile operating system. Gmail is already fully compatible with iOS 12 and the XS / XS Max iPhones, taking advantage of several features of the new system – it is possible, for example, to receive notifications grouped by account or activate keyboard shortcuts on the iPad.

Google also fixed a bug that was preventing Office documents from opening, which is very important for anyone concerned with productivity. Gmail can be downloaded for free from the App Store.


The main music recognition application was recently completed by Apple, and – as it should be – is gaining changes to become even more integrated into the company’s system. Today, its version for Mac is the one that gained news.

Shazam app icon

The novelties are mainly in the interface, which won a store bath and is more elegant; now you can recognize songs with a click on the menu bar – you no longer need to have Auto Shazam enabled for this type of facility. In addition, we fully support macOS Mojave dark mode.

Shazam can be downloaded for free from the Mac App Store.
