Sync issues

1) ios app and mac version don't really sync immediately. It's honestly annoying to have to tick off remainders twice.
2) Events I've already declined and deleted from my schedule keep coming back and appear to be declined events. I can't find anywhere in the settings to turn this off. I recall that I can choose to not see events that have been declined on mac but I could be wrong. Anyways I just have to delete them over and over and over which really is a bother.

If something ever happened to Fantastical, I’d probably just die

This is no ordinary calendar app - this is, quite frankly, a life changing tool that will turn you into the sort of morally superior, organisation guru you’ve always dreamed of being.

As a chronically late, forgetful and naturally disorganised person I used to tackle these issues by spending a lot of time synching up my outlook, google and Apple calendars and keeping separate task and reminders lists only for the connection to periodically break and find I’d totally forgotten about the appointment that wasn’t in my calendar that I was now 15 minutes late to (so far!).

Now, I have a dream system. I put EVERYTHING in my fantastical app (which is literally on all my devices) and all my other calendars just drop in perfectly. My Apple reminders are in there. My google tasks! It’s colour coded by work and personal, and, the piece de resistance- the Apple Watch widget- sits gloriously on my wrist, gently reminding me when it’s time to leave for my next appointment and singlehandedly rescuing me from the clutches of my ADHD driven tardiness.

The only problem I have now is that I can’t stop diarising everything…

Fantastical 2 was better

I was impressed with the UI design, the integration with my Apple Watch (which was one of its more useful features to me) and the smart look of the app. I was quite happy to pay for the version of Fantastical 2 I had and continue to use it this way. However, Fantastical 3 came out and I was forced to upgrade to the new unaffordable subscription model. With that I lost the acces to my Apple Watch. The developers claim that fantastical 2 users will have access to it on Apple Watch. This is not true- it has never worked for me on my watch. I would have preferred keeping the fantastical 2 version as it did everything I needed but had no choice. I have now had to switch to using Apple calendar on my watch so am quite disappointed.

Hi, you are correct that Fantastical 2 customers such as yourself continue to have access to all the features that were in Fantastical 2. If the Apple Watch app is not working for you, please contact support and we'll help you resolve this:
