What's New in Version 2.6.3
- Various fixes and improvements
By the way, App Store reviews are very helpful to us. If you think Fantastical is worthy, would you mind taking a moment to write a nice review? We'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks for using Fantastical! :)
Apple Watch mostly awesome
Update update: Keeps messing up in syncing with Apple Watch and Reminders. Keeps bringing back old completed reminders. Not sure why, but really annoying.
Update: seems to be fixed again. Removing one star because sometimes syncing with Apple Watch doesn't work. Luckily I wasn't relying on the information on my Apple Watch alone. Only was broken for half a day this time after like 2 months of flawless working, so not a huge deal. Still well worth the money. Could be Apple's or Watch's fault I suppose.
Old one star review: Synced flawlessly with Apple Watch for over a month, now it's broken again. The correct information displays on the fantastical app on my phone, and the correct information displays on my reminders app, but the watch app shows no events for today when there should be. When I open the app on my watch, it's showing yesterday's events as overdue and doesn't show anything for today. Tried deleting, restarting etc. Super frustrating because that's why I bought the app, so I could see my reminders and events on my large complication on my watch. When it works it's really helpful and awesome, when it doesn't work it's really frustrating. This happened before, then got fixed, so not sure why this keeps happening.
One fatal flaw for the apple watch user...
This app is great on the iPhone. However, I was searching for an app that would allow me to add an appointment with my Apple Watch. The whole idea behind this is to leave my iPhone in my pocket while I am adding the appointment. I purchased this app under the impression that I would be able to do this (based on research and reviews). It does. Sort of. You can add an event from the watch ONLY when the Fantastical 2 app is open/running on the iPhone. If the app is not running on the iPhone, the Apple Watch will stall and show a blank screen. This is a fatal flaw for me because I conserve battery power and performance by closing my apps on the iPhone. This means I still have to pull my iPhone out to open the Fantastical app (which defeats the purpose) or just leave the Fantastical app open in the background (which goes against my best practice for battery usage). I understand this won't be an issue for everyone but at least it is clear to you now. For me, it's an issue. If the developers of this app fix this issue, then it is 5 stars hands down.
Can Only See One Line of Text for Each Entry
This is a great app for calendaring and task management, with one exception, which, unfortunately reduces this otherwise 5 star app to a 3 star app (at least for me).
Many of my reminders and calendar items exceed one line. Fantastical only allows me to view one line of each calendar entry/task item in the list view and the calendar view. This is a HUGE problem as it leaves me unable to view very important information. It also renders the quick list view and calendar view rather useless, as I have to click each item individually in order to view the entire text of the entry in another screen. I really wish this weren't the case, as this is the only app that I have found that syncs with my all the calendars and reminders on my iPhone, regardless of the source (my outlook calendar for work is protected and does not sync to my iCloud, so apps that only allow me to integrate my iCloud calendar and tasks are useless).
