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!

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!!

It's not cheap, but it can be worth it

I've a long-time Fantastical user from the Mac v1 version, and have bought every iteration for every platform - and even as a fan, I had to swallow a bit and ask myself if the $40/yr was really worth it to me. And I'll be honest, the first couple of months were a bit rough, with Watch sync and a couple of other features not entirelythere.

Once some of the bugs got ironed out, though, I haven't really looked back - or wanted to look back. The ability to directly connect my work (Google) calendar and my personal (FastMail) calendar without tying control of my phone to work is really really handy, with full support for every feature on each platform; it's something no other calendar app I've tried can do. As someone that's worked remotely since before COVID, the recently added direct meeting join has been super-handy. Feature and sync parity for things like calendar sets has been a godsend, along with the customization and features and great design that's defined Fantastical.

Is it going to be worth it for everyone? No - and that's fine. But if you want a feature-rich and beautiful calendar that works across every Apple device you own, it's absolutely worth giving a shot.
