Retool — build native iOS apps with just JS and SQL.
What Fantastical is to Apple’s Calendar app, Cardhop is to the Contacts app — a vast improvement over a built-in system app, with a very convenient natural language parser for doing everything from searching to creating. That’s no surprise, since Cardhop is from Fantastical’s developer, Flexibits.
Everything great about Fantastical is there in Cardhop — thoughtful interaction design, gorgeous appearance, and terrific attention to detail. They’ve also made a cool intro video, and Ryan Christoffel has a detailed review at MacStories.
And it’s just a one-time purchase for $4 in the App Store. Ridiculously cheap.
