Customer Reviews

Was great…the bug they blame on iCloud makes this unsuable

For weeks now there has been a bug that makes me not be able to postpone events…always get an error message. I contacted support and they blame iCloud…it doesn’t matter who’s fault it is…this program does not work for me any more…and it is not a cheap program to have to now abandon due to this bug that first appeared YEARS ago (I’ve found posts dating to 2014 about this).

Funny…just got an email from Flexibits about this review, by way of the App Store:

"Hi, if you are referring to iCloud's two-factor authentication requirement, then we have resources on our website that walk you through how to set this up. We are also happy to help you negotiate this if you open a support ticket. If this is a different problem that you're facing with iCloud, then please do get back in touch and we'll work with you to resolve this.”

I emailed back and forth with Flexibits for weeks about this and all I got from Flexibits was that this was an Apple Bug that they could not fix…just try to work around.

This was word for word what Flexibits had written to me: "403 error are caused by iCloud, we're sometimes able to work around them, but the responsibility for them lies with Apple in this case.”

I don’t care whose fault it is…this made this software unusable for me…and a huge waste of money for me.

Exchange Server Ready

I have been waiting years for Fantastical to support our Exchange Server. Now that it does, I have switched almost entirely from Calendar to Fantastical 2.

• Exchange Server support, including attendee availability (killer feature for business users)
• Calendar Sets to move between home, work, and business rhythms (incredibly useful for those with complex calendars)
• Integration of task lists onto the calendar list and onto the actual calendar (finally a one-stop shop for meetings and tasks)

• Printing is currently landscape only, with no portrait support
• Next available time does not respect work day limits (e.g., it hits nights and weekends), providing less functionality than Calendar

• An option to see tasks with no due time appear as all-day events at the top of the calendar (this would be incredible)

Nice app, but shared calendar support is lacking (or poorly documented0

I really like this app, but accessing shared calendars (like team calendars) in Exchange is either non-functional or poorly documented. This is a must-have feature. I contacted support, who suggested (as the documentation states) that you should be able to add a shared calendar in the “Delegates” menu. It doesn’t seem to work, which could be because I have not been explicitly setup as a delegate on a shared team calendar. Bottom line: the UI, documentation, and support are not clear on how to setup a shared calendar; so this functionality needs some work (or more thorough documentation).
