Choosing this lets you add the classic widget to the Today view.

Share extension

Use Fantastical's share extension to create events or tasks from within other apps. While in another app, tap the share icon and select "Fantastical". Fantastical will attempt to parse any text it finds and turn it into an event.

Share extension

If you share a web page from Safari, Fantastical will automatically attach the URL of the web page to the event or task that you create.
