Crashy, Buggy, Slow…….Awful

They have lost the edge they once had.

If you think the Mac app is anywhere near as polished as the iOS app, you couldn’t be more wrong. Forget drag and drop. If you drag, you’ll have to wait 4-10 seconds for the app to catch up to the drag event. Happens on all of my macs. Kills my computer’s battery when not on power. I can hear the fan going when the app just comes to the foreground.

Wish I could get my money back. Not even worth $5.

Great app, but could use one awesome addition

I installed this app and have been using it for a few days. It’s much better that the built-in iCal app. I suggest adding a feature that I haven’t seen on any other calendar app: the ability to attach documents to a calendar event. That way I could easily pull up documents that will be discussed at scheduled meetings. Seems like a small thing, but would be really useful addition.

A Must Have App for the busy professional or anyone really

I absolutely love Fantastical! Before fantastical I often switching between my reminders app & google calendar. Fantastical not only displays your calendars, but it also displays your reminders with your calendar schedule. I use Fantastical on my iPhone, personal Mac & work computer. The app customizations are really amazing. For example, I have a list in my reminders app that’s just for work and I can choose to only display that reminder list on top of my work schedule on my work computer, and not show my personal life reminders on my work computer!

This app is absolutely worth the price in my honest opinion. The text recognization is awesome too. I can start typing in “remind me to ……. this Saturday at 5pm” and the app is intelligent enough to create a reminder for me. When you don’t start with “remind me … “ it will default to a calendar event, but it takes 1 second to switch it, if you wanted to.

Thanks to this app, I’m switching between apps less (calendars/reminders).

FEEDBACK: allow users to view/download attachments for calendar invites!
