Very good replacement for Mac Calendar; iOS version is tired and confusing

After several years of resisting, I finally paid to switch to Fantastical 2 from the standard Mac calendar. After using for 2 months, I'm not sure I should have. Pros: cleaner interface, ability to show two timezones concurrently, ability to show reminders in side panel, quick add widget. Cons: natural language parsing often gets it wrong and I have to spend time correcting/finding an entry to redirect it, the price is high for not a whole lot more functionality. Other calendars have improved greatly at much less cost. Bottom line: I like the Mac version a lot and is probably worth the upgrade if you are a heavy calendar user. The iOS version is awful and needs a complete redesign. The "dots" approach versus showing a time-based day is confusing...this really needs to be redesigned. Entering new appointments on the iOS version is also inefficient. Google's iOS calendar is so much better....Fantastical needs to take a look and "flatter them" by redesigning. Maybe best to stay with the basic iOS calendar or use Google's free version other then the lack of uniformity in your workflow.

Outstanding, “every-day” utility completely replaces Apple Calendar

I’ve been using Fantastical since its very first version, and it remains to this day my “use-it-every-day-all-the-time” ulitlity, on my desktop, laptop, phones and iPads. Fantastical’s best feature is its “plain language” ability to create new events. Works nearly flawlessly to parse dates, times and complicated recurring events (“first day of the month,” "second Tuesday of the month,” etc.). The user interface is excellent, even on small phone screens. Most importantly, this app is dependable, reliable. It syncs flawlessly with itself on all my devices, very quickly. Handles invitations from Outlook users well, and handles locations/maps well, too. Integrates smoothly with Google calendars and with Apple Calendar. Handles shared ICS event files flawlessly.
If I have any complaint (a minor one), it’s that I’d prefer to be able to tweak my user interface a bit, such as enlarging text on the iPhone version, adjusting (‘toning down”) the app’s jarring red color banner, etc.
The iOS version works well. I’m hoping the developers create a “shortcut” capability (other than Siri, which it already has) to allow users to enter events directly from the new Apple “Shortcuts” app, without having to open Fantastical on the phone.
This is a first class app, made for people who use it - and depend on it - heavily.

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.
