Elegant, beautiful, full-featured
I've been a happy Fantastical user since it was just a Mac menu bar app, and o get fantastic use out of it every day across all my devices. The iPad version is a nice complement to the others, and the fact that it is designed for the iPad and is not just a blown-up iPhone app shows throughout the interface. Well worth the price.
Things I love: smart text entry, the list view, the expandable and collapsible daily/weekly/monthly view.
The one thing I wish this version had that the macOS version has: support for Google Hangouts attachments.
How about an intuitive app: there is no monthly calendar as such, which means you can't see groups or patterns of exact entries: e.g., see Calendars 5 or also, on the iPhone, the Google calendar for what an intuitive monthly view should look like; bars on the weekly view are useless -- what do they helpfully communicate? Empty days don't show in the list, adding to confusion. It's an app that fails at being quick and intuitive. (Native iOS app is light years better.) Self-important and unpleasant customer support. This calendar is meh. Save your money.
Ipad and iPhone app
I love the calendar on my mac. The iPhone and ipad app aren't as user friendly. Plus on the regular iCal app, it shows the current date. I look at the front of the app daily to see what the date is. I can't stand all of the colorful blocks that serve no purpose on the Fantastical App. Add the date (1 for the 1st or 27 for the 27th etc..) and my rating goes to 3 stars. Update some of the layout and this would be a 5 star app then. Keeping the mac version but not sure about the iPhone and ipad versions
