Great Convenience, Design & IOS Syncing

I've been using Fantastical since it first came out. It was excellent then and oh-so-handy with its natural language voice dictation features but it has continued to steadily improve over the years. I have it installed on my iPhone and my iPad Air as well as my Mac. Fantastical does a fantastic job of keeping all my calendar events and reminders in sync across all my devices. It is so much more convenient and full-featured than Apple’s Calendar application that I use Fantastical as my primary calendar app and rarely ever open Calendar. However, all events and reminders created in Fantastical are accessible in Calendar. I love the fact that Fantastical resides as an icon in the system-wide menu bar at the top of my screen and is always available without switching out of whatever application I’m currently working in. Fantastical is one of those applications that I use all the time and that I rely on for staying organized and getting things done. It’s always there and always works as expected. It’s rock solid and reliabe. I give it 5 stars and recommend it without reservation.

Natural language is the future

Makes me want to vomit when I use Outlook at work and have to enter appointments and meetings in a form like an animal. Sometimes I open my Mac and VPN into the work network just so I can use Fantastical to enter something into my Exchange calendar. Of particular use is adding things from email newsletters and webpages (like events at my son’s school). I can just copy the entire sentence of pablum into the little smarty-pants box and it figures everything out. One nice feature would be the ability to add people to an invite using natural language, perhaps using a keyword like “with”. It would also be nice to be able to set the busy, tentative, free field. But really those requests are just to remove the last bit of functionality I need to use Outlook to access.

So much smoother.

I use Fantastical as my primary Calandar app for both iOS and OS X. I don’t know how i ever lived without it. Input is so much easier. Just type “Meet with Jan at 2 on Wednesday,” and you can watch it figure it out. I also love the quick pop-up from the menu bar. It makes my calandar seamless on my Mac.

This app has seriously made my calendar just work and get out of my way. As a busy law student trying to juggle two buisnesses,

I would, however, like to have a larger window sometimes. Not necessarily full-screen, but normal-app sized would be great. Also, occasionally, I get email invites, and Fantastical can’t seem to figure them out. It happens rarely enough that I just type the appointment into my calendar. For those who get a lot of these, it might be annoying. (You can always just use Calendar for that.)
