If you live and breathe appointments and meetings, Fantastical was built for you. Not only does it offer a broad range of different ways to view your calendars and reminders, adding an event is as easy as talking to a digital assistant. And with support for widgets and Apple Watch, you’ll never forget an important event again.

Longtime user, it’s time for me to leave

Hey listen Fantastical, I’ve had your $40 subscription for a couple of years now. I’ve stuck with you even when you would just crash on my macbook every day to the point where I had to uninstall the desktop application entirely. I stuck with you because your mobile app on my phone works great, and I live by my phone calendar. I love being able to type in when and where an event will be and have it autofill the event.

But I have to let you go—not only because I’m now in way more student debt and every penny counts, but also because I just spent 30 minutes trying to sign into both the updated desktop application and the iPad app using my Apple ID and had no success. I’m starting a program where I need my calendar on my tablet and my desktop at all times. And yeah I probably could wait to call tech support tomorrow to get assistance, but considering the update to the desktop app took a while for me, I think I’ll pass on waiting for this fix. I’ll probably come back once I can just rely on the mobile app again. Until then, goodbye Flexbits, goodbye Fantastical.

PS Originally I had this at 3 stars. I’ve bumped it up to 4 because I truly used this app every day on my phone for years. And it probably works just fine on iPads and macbooks too. But I guess I’ll never know

Very nice app, but not quite perfect.

Fantastical has a ton of functionality. This is a huge pro, of course, but it also leads to the app feeling cluttered or chaotic at times. I would love to see more options to have a simpler main screen. I don’t always want to see everything that I have planned for the coming days; it’s a lot easier to focus on immediate tasks if I have the option of only seeing the current day’s tasks and events. Seeing so many future events can feel overwhelming.

I would also like to be able to either create custom length tasks or to be able to check off events like you can in Sorted 3. If, say, I want to block off three hours to focus on cleaning the garage and I get finished in two hours, I have no easy way to end that event early which means it will remain visible on my Watch complication and my home screen widget. You can check off tasks, but unfortunately tasks don’t have a duration setting.

These are my only two complaints about the app. Unfortunately, they are pretty significant to the app’s functionality for me and I will likely go back to my previous calendar app after a little while. The way I use my calendar apps leaves some aspects of Fantastical lacking, but overall it is a great app and a lot of people would probably find it the perfect fit.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for the feedback here! There are some setting that you can adjust to make the day ticker view of the app show only today or only today and the next day, this makes the amount of events and tasks in the app feel more focused. We also suggest users to try creating as many calendar sets as they see fit - grouping calendars and task lists into the various areas of life help you keep organized as well. Regarding task duration times, think of tasks as a reminder to do something at a specific point in time rather than a event on your calendar itself. If you have a "task" that you need to consume a certain amount of time in your day, consider this as an event and not a task reminder.
