Good but some aspects that aren’t as good as Apple Calender

Some really nice feature such as involved reminders and the ability to expand widget and I felt the iPhone app was better. However on the iPad the standard view can be really poor and nowhere near as good an standard Apple calendar. It’s really frustrating to not have any information on the month view calendar as you can see dots for appointments but not what they are only if you try to link with list on right. Why can’t I if in full screen week view have the option for a month view with the information displayed like on the Mac app, this is what Apple do and I much prefer this and for this reason will look to continue with Apple calendar instead. Shame as these feel minor tweaks and could make this the go to app if you could see all information in one place as if have week view up at the top if it have moved past the start of an event you can’t see what that event is as doesn’t keep the title at the top of the screen when you scroll. On the pure month view I could also have a list of events at the bottom like the phone app. Please an I select if I want a week or a month as the main view with the info in it.

Nice update, however.......

Latest update is good, however when duplicating an item I sometime have recurring entries that I want to copy a year in advance, but on different dates, but I can only duplicate during the same year.
I can do this with other calendars, and for me this is the only thing missing, hence only 4 stars.
Surely a simple "copy and paste" is all that's required?

Update: I’ve recently noticed I’m getting a garbled screen more and more often, which can only be resolved by closing and reopening. It’s beginning to get a bit annoying, and I’m afraid I’ve had to dock one star.

Developer Response ,

Hi, You should be able to duplicate events to later years, and I'm sorry to hear that you seem to be experiencing what you describe as a 'garbled screen'. Please get in touch with support and we'll help you resolve both of these issues:


Move Reminders would make 5 star

Really like the simple and colourful interface.
Am looking for the nirvana of integrated Calendars and Reminders and FantastiCal goes nearly all the way there, but Reminders are not listed individually on the calendar views so cannot be dragged to another day, requiring a manual edit of the items instead.
Otherwise it’s great and the double scrolling of week across the top left-right and item list up-down below is elegant and useful.
