Editors' Notes

If you live and breathe appointments and meetings, Fantastical was built for you. Not only does it offer a broad range of different ways to view your calendars and reminders, adding an event is as easy as talking to a digital assistant. And with support for widgets and Apple Watch, you’ll never forget an important event again.

Keeps my life together

I've been using Fantastical for over a year and a half and it's never skipped a beat. I particularly find its widget in the home screen helpful as it shows my whole week (or month) at a glance. I use multiple calendars that are colour-coded so I know what's coming up; whether it's work related, social, an upcoming bill, or something else.

I use it to set reminders, which have become second nature due to how easy it is, and everything has synced up nicely with my work Outlook account. I've changed jobs in between and it's worked great with both accounts.

I figured it was time to write a review seeing as though I use this app so much - it's made me a more productive person and is one of the few apps that I can say has had a major positive impact on my life. Thanks to the team at Fantastical!!

If you use the calendar on iOS...

I’m not going to go over features and tell you how awesome this app is. I’m not going to tell you how much more this app will do or how much easier it is to use than the default iOS app. What I’m going to say is the usefulness of this app is up to you. If you use the iOS calendar once or twice a month or just to remember family birthdays you are not going to see much difference between this app and what comes with iOS. But if you use it every week you’ll start to see how this app is easier to do some things. If you use a calendar daily on iOS you will start to sing its praises. If you use it hourly you will swear it is one of the best apps you have ever used and if you didn’t have it now you wouldn’t use a calendar on iOS at all. So how awesome is this app? It’s up to you.
