By far the best calendar software I've used

One of the most essential apps I use. Has a beautiful UI, great parsing of natural text for entering new entries, lives in the menu bar where I can look at my schedule any time, has a great full-size mode for larger-scale planning. Absolutely essential. One of the best apps I have ever purchased.

Tech support is terrible

Tech support is terrible. No response to emails sent to the tech support desk. No telephone number provided for assistance. Purchase this app at your own peril.

Overall, great

I love Fantastical and use it on all my Apple devices. The natural language-based entry system in particular is a life saver when I'm trying to enter an appointment quickly on my phone in a situation where my attention is divided. Just a few spoken words and voila! I have my calendar entry.

The only reason I'm not giving it five stars is that it can be slow to sync across devices. In particular, it sometimes seems as though I have to have the calendar actually open on my iOS devices, sometimes for a full minute or more, for it to fully sync. I haven't been able to fully diagnose the conditions in which the sync problems occur. They aren't bad enough that they've caused me to miss meetings, but I have occasionally had to open my calendar and wait for the sync before I can, for example, get the number I need to dial into a call.

If they can improve the sync problem, then this app will be perfect for my needs.
