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.

It's ok...just not as good as I thought!!


I was looking for a replacement for the bog standard calendar on iPhone & I thought I had found it. However, having used it for a few days & reading a load of reviews I have come to the following conclusion. If you use the Apple calendar the main benefit to using this is having reminders included with your calendar. If you have a good todo list that you use & are happy with the Apple calendar...stick with it. I think I'll keep using fantastical on my iPhone, however, on my iPad & iMac I'll stick with Apples's far clearer for seeing your schedules in my opinion!! Hope this helps...& saves you some cash!!

Update: After sticking with this app on my phone, I got used to the app on both my iMac & iPad...I can now say I absolutely love it. If the developers are reading this please can we have Calendar sets (these are a real game changer for people who have lots of different calendars for home, work etc) on iPhone & iPad. It doesn’t need to be GPS enabled, just a simple to select button from the main screen like the Mac version...PLEASE!! This would make it perfect & five star plus!! 😀

Best of the bunch, needs an upgrade.


I have used Fantastical 2 since it’s launch. What I look for in calendar apps, is rock solid synchronizing, ease of input and correct time display for appointments over several time zones, Fantastical 2 does it all beautifully. Where the software is lacking is the UI, which I find cluttered, lacking in clarity and hasn’t found how to give a clear overview of the week’s or month’s appointments. Another aspect where the software can improve are features found in Moleskine’s Timepage, where weather information, distance to travel, and the day’s appointments (today’s digest) are usefully displayed. It would be good to see Fantastical move in that assistive direction, where your calendar offers light PA (personal assistant) functions. I have tried several calendar apps (mostly out of curiosity) and always come back to Fantastical.
