Terrible for families

I'm a paid 1.x and 2.x user of Fanastical, and for 2 that wasn't cheap. The new 3.x switches to a subscription model which I expected but it is steep, $40 a year. To ease concerns Flexibits has allowed former 2.x users to have all the 2.x features in 3 without paying... BUT the UI is a mess of blurring, red stars, and pop ups asking for payment for the premium features if you do that. It breaks the app in my opinion so the choices now are realistically to stop using Fantastical or pay $40 a year as they have not kept the 2.x version in the app store for Mac or iOS.

Further for families they have completly dropped support for Apple Family Sharing. I justified paying $70 for Mac, iPhone and iPad versions of 2.x knowing my wife and two minor children could use the app also. By the same token I'm willing to pay $40 a year for an outstanding 3.x version if my family can use it... however Flexibit now requires $40 *PER PERSON, PER YEAR* so my family would be $160 a year! They are hoping to offer a "family plan" in the "future" but no date on that, and of course it implies that while it may not be as expensive as today it will be yet more than $40 a year.

This is the best calendar app on the platform, but the price does not justify how much better it is, it does not support families, and it does not take care of 2.x users despite what Flexibits says. Hope the developer reconsiders their approach.

Thank you for your feedback here – it is much appreciated. To be clear, Fantastical will not ask you to subscribe unless you try to activate one of Fantastical's premium features, which are marked by subtle grey stars for previous users.

You are correct that we will be introducing a family plan in the future, although we can't announce anything just yet. We are very open to hearing your further feedback on this matter, so please do feel free to get in touch so we can discuss further if you wish: Thank you.

Just finished the trial and loved it, but one thing would make it perfect for me

I've been using Fantastical on iOS since v2, and when I heard about v3 and the subscription model, I was hesitant at first but wanted to give it a fair shot. After reading through the features and going through the tutorial videos, I started a trial and took the new Fantastical for a spin.

From the first launch, it’s clear that the team at Flexbits has put a lot of time and effort into v3—from the wide variety of display options to features like location-based calendar sets. It's not just loaded with helpful new features but it also has a lot of "nice to have" features too. It’s also clear that the team is working hard on bug fixes and updates—just check out the version history to see the frequency of updates and the number changes with each version.

So what’s holding me back from subscribing to Fantastical Premium? Simply put, the cost is too high for the value I'd get out of it. Fantastical 3 has a lot of great features that support collaboration, but I use it exclusively for individual productivity. As much as I wish I could use those collaboration features, I simply have no need for them. Now if Flexbits offered a subscription geared for individual users without the collaboration features and at a lower price, I’d be all in!

Thank you for your feedback here. We are glad to hear that the app’s design is appreciated. While the subscription might not be right for you now, we do plan to continue to implement more and more new features that will be subscription-only. Along with those features, keep in mind, the one subscription gets you Fantastical Premium unlocked on all of your devices, iOS, iPadOS, macOS and even watchOS.

Amazing App

Such a great app and useful way to remain organized. I used to use several apps to keep track of events and reminders, but Fantastical helped me streamline the process. Works for Mac and Iphone. I am able to look at both my work calender and check off reminders that I set for myself without even unlocking my iphone (through widgets). Great connection to additional apps such as reminders and outlook. I can still keep track of reminders in the reminders app and set work events on my work outlook, but now have it all organized in one place (Fantastical).
What to improve-
I LOVE the widget, but it often feels too condensed/clunky. I would love for a more clear and spacious format, specfically by minimizing all day events. Also, I believe events for the following day do not need to appear until ~6pm. At 11am I do not necessarily need to see the following day's reminders, but would rather have current reminders spread out (on the iphone widget). I would just reconsider the overall widget design, while I love the customization with colors, I would try to reduce the fixed colors and simplify design so that it is clean, spacious and yet fits several lines worth of events. I would try to make it as similar as possible to the notification center widget, as that one is perfect!
Great App and worth the buy!!
