very few apps are worth almost $50 REPEATEDLY.

I do like the app and it does work well BUT $50 to purchase and then additional money to renew?!! Me rewarding you for creating a great app? Yes, that’s why I shelled out the initial purchase price of $50 BUT to require (essentially) a re-purchase of the app year after year. Sorry, the built in i-calendar (although drastically needing improvement) and/or re-verting to my “paper planner” and saving $50?? Sorry guys, good product but greed has lost this customer.

Love it but

I guess this review is actually about the iPhone version but with the new Apple Watch 4, the Fantastical complication doesn't work well in the newest watch faces. I would love for that to be the case.

Edit: I recently made the jump to Office 365 and was mortified to find out that Fantastical does NOT work with Office 365 Calendar. Original review below.

I purchased Fantastical for one feature…… get a view with my tasks integrated with my Calendar. It does that very well. After using it for a week, I’m not sure it it was worth the cost. The tasks are a re-skinning of the Apple Reminders app. Not a horrible thing, just make sure you have enabled Apple “Reminders” in your icloud settings.

The date & time recognition works, but if seems gimmicky to me, and sometimes gets in the way. For example, If I create a task “Finish Design of T-shirts for 4th of July Parade", it automatically enters the reminder on my calendar (which I didn’t want) on July fourth. It does this even when I force the app not to do this during the creation of the event. This forces me to go in and make a correction to the task after the fact. I wish I could turn this feature off.

I like the dark theme, the ability to set colors to tasks from different lists, and the menubar quick view option for both tasks and calendars.

If you have the $50 to spend, I’d say it’s worth it…..especially if you spend a lot of time in your Calendar and Reminders app, and you want a combined task/cal view. If not, just use Apples built in calendar application. I think Flexbits would sell a lot more of this app if the price point were more like $29.95.

Bottom line: very nice app. Absolutely 5 stars. However, two points off for price point.
