  • I had different expectations

    By etkinso
    I thought this gave the Apple watch full calendar view but the one i saw appeared to be an older version of the app.Bring back the full calendar view on Apple watch. It's very handy to see the full month on watch
  • Love it!

    By Love WV
    I have been using this for over 4 months now and I love it this is everything I was looking for! Easy to use and navigate only had to pay once NOT monthly like so many others out there, but for this one I would monthly. It’s my lifesaver it’s so easy to setup an event to repeat and you can customize it to how you need it! This is wonderful I have looked at others just to see if there’s something that might be able to meet my needs more and work as easy as wonderful as this and me personally I can’t find one.
  • Doesn’t show all my calendars

    By Trivium Rulez
    I added an .ical on Google Calendar that is constantly updated throughout the year by the person who created the calendar. For some reason, fantastical does not show this calendar at all on the app. It is one of my most important calendars and makes this app useless Since Fantastical doesn’t support constantly updating iCals, I have to give it 1 star
  • App is extremely slow on iPhone 6 plus

    By nicholascch
    This used to be my favorite calendar app on the iPhone. I use it everyday and everything was fast and nice until I updated to the latest version to support iPhone X. Now the app takes about 3 seconds to create an event. It just freezes there for a very long time whenever you create new event or todo item. I wish you guys will fix this asap for iPhone 6 Plus.
  • Love this calendar!

    By Dchuff1
    I’ve tried probably 20 calendar apps or more over the years and Fantastical continues to blow them all away! I am not an executive but I still have a lot of appointments & reminders and this app Never lets me forget one! It works with Siri, my Apple Watch & was one of the first apps to have a widget! Best money I ever spent on an app!
  • Great design both visually and functionally

    By user2840457
    Fantastical has a wonderful design both visually and functionally. It not only looks great all over iOS (the app itself, the widget, watch app, an especially the iPad app) but it also carries that thoughtful design with it through its functionality. From natural language parsing, to the flow of elements, to the extended keyboard for adding events, it keeps things simple yet complex in a well refined way. My only complaints are that it can take a little to sync across devices on occasion but that may be the fault of iCloud or Google. One thing I really wish it offered was an auto snooze for reminders. I appreciate that it gives me multiple manual snooze buttons but often I have my hands full and can’t snooze. If it goes a few minutes without a manual snooze or completed, it should keep reminding you until acknowledged so as to truly help you never forget. Overall great app though, worth every penny, I hope to see many more improvements over time.
  • Where the Hell Did The Alarms Go

    By eyeambrian
    This app use to have alarm notifications where you could see up to five alarms fke each event. They’re give like a fart in a windstorm. I only purchased this app for the alarms. Please restore them or I’ll have to remove this from my phone as I have done with other useless apps.
  • The little things make a difference

    By Joe Pfeiffer
    When I switched to the app I didn’t notice any major changes from the iOS calendar app but after a few weeks all the little shortcuts and features start to add up and you fall in love with it.
