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.

Is this a joke??

The ONLY thing about this is a slightly different interface with more info. The phone app is GARBAGE, not to mention you have to pay again for it. COMPLETE WASTE OF MONEY. Just use your normal calender, it's the best.
