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!! 😀


Simple and almost perfect

This app has been beautifully stripped back to it’s logical conclusion. The way it combines a simple list of entry’s which, as you scroll, correspond to a little overview on a traditional calendar page is genius. The process of adding entry’s is faster than anything else I’ve tried. And I’m glad I can just buy it rather than relying on a subscription that I never finish paying for.

This app deserves 5 stars regardless but there’s one more simplification that would make it perfect (besides a slightly less garish icon). I quite often scroll accidentally up past the current day into the previous week. No big deal! I just scroll down again. But this happens everyday. Wouldn’t a history-lock option be really nice? So you can land neatly in the present with a single, clumsy swipe.

I would really appreciate that ☺️
