What's New in Version 2.4.2
- Various fixes and improvements
By the way, App Store reviews are very helpful to us. If you think Fantastical is worthy, would you mind taking a moment to write a nice review? We'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks for using Fantastical! :)
Hope developers read this review.
I usually don't write app reviews but the update said they like reviews and I think this app is very worthy of it. So I hope the developers see this review. They did a GREAT job on this app. Back when apple messed up the calendar on the iPhone, I went searching for a new app to keep my calendar organized. I tried almost all of the calendar apps on the App Store (probably 95% of them). This is the only one I liked and stayed with. It is very easy to use, offers simple alerts, and has everything I need for business and personal use. The ability to sync with my iCal on my desktop was a huge selling point for me too. So this is just a message to the developers to say thanks for getting it right with this app, and I continue to use it everyday!
Best calendar application! One thing needed though.
I love this app and use it on a daily basis. Functionally the stock calendar app was fine for me, but I enjoy the UI and aesthetics of Fantastical. It is easier to use and has additional functionality that you can read about in the description, all of which work as promised. The one request I have is to make the date display on the app icon. There is a notification option where you can have the date pop up in a red notification circle, while it's functional it is also annoying. I'm an inbox/everything-zero type and hate those red notifications. It's a small thing for many users I'm sure, but since the main reasons I use Fantastical are aesthetics/UI, it's a big thing for me. Still, it is an awesome app and with one change and it would be perfect- 5 stars.
Outstanding (with minor wants)
Best calendar app--hands down. I've tried many of them. This one beats them all in functionality, design, and features. It just works and blows away the stock calendar app. I owned the original and did not mind paying the developers for the new version.
The update for iPhone 6 / plus screen size is helpful and makes a big difference. The widget, extensions, and interactive notifications on iOS 8 are well done.
Wants: Please let us change the alert sound and also to have the light and dark theme toggle automatically with screen brightness setting (like tweetbot). Complications for Apple Watch and 3D Touch Support for 6s.
