  • Missing key features

    Unfortunately I didn’t realise before buying that the iPhone version doesn’t have daily calendar view but only weekly in landscape. So you are only looking at a list of meetings and need to pay close attention to the tiny timing number. In addition, unlike the standard iPhone calendar, there is no button to go back to “today”. So if you work on a future appointment you need to scroll back all the way. Ridiculous. I wish there was a way to get a refund.

    I downloaded this expecting it would allow me to search my outlook calendar on my iPhone. BIG MISTAKE, no chance, doesn't offer what I need. I uninstalled/deleted it within 3 minutes of downloading/installing it. I have tried to obtaon refund, or report a problem, CAN'T BE DONE! Fantastical/Apple WILL NOT ALLOW ME REFUND??? FEEL RIPPED OFF AND VERY DISSAPPOINTED. I WILL NOT BE BUYING AMY MORE APPS FROM APP STORE. BEWARE, APPLE ARE NOT CHEATING CUSTOMERS - EVEN IF THE APP DOESN'T WORK YOU CAN'T GET A REFUND??
  • So good

    By mac98aop
    Over the last 10yrs of iPhone I have tried dozens of calendar apps. Or at least I did for the first few years. Fantastical is the only one I have stuck with for years. It really is the best. Other apps offer features I wish this one had, but this is the best all round by far. Clean, simple, stable. Love it.
  • Still one of the best calendar apps

    By i.Jason
    This is a very well polished app. I particularly like its natural language support for entering events and reminders, drag and drop and the duplicate feature. These are all time savers.
  • Calendar Replacement

    By robnelson76
    I hadn’t planned on paying for an app to manage my calendars across the family, downloaded the Mac version and have ended up buying both that and this. It’s the only way my family can follow my shifts at work and we can manage everything. Great app. Worth the investment.
  • Useful

    By Phillippe221
    Useful to sync my google and Apple calendars onto my Apple Watch - I just wish I could click on events in the watch and be given the directions to their location.
  • Excellent

    By Gehsty
    Brilliant App it’s been my calendar of choice for a long time. I find it it displays many calendars in a way I can parse visually very easily so helps with things like expenses and time management.
  • Very pleased

    By Susiemreed
    I am in the older age bracket (much older, and well retired)! I find this very easy to use. It has been much improved over time. It does what I want and need, and as far as I am concerned, it does it well. I would certainly recommend - the best I have found for my needs.
  • Hard to add Google calendar

    By Randomhacks
    The app works well with apple watch. I had to email support to find out how to add my Google calendar. Surely they should include some instructions for doing this on there website.
  • Best calendar app out there for power users

    By Ldcio
    This is a really excellent app. No other calendar app gets close. Yes the UI takes a little while to get used to but, like any good product for power users, once you do get used to it every other product seems so lacking in features and so slow. I use it across my Phone and Mac, and across multiple Gmail and iCloud accounts and it’s flawless. Highly recommended.
