Customer Reviews

wonderfully useful

This is a really well designed, useful app. It provides a quick and easy way to check upcoming calendar events, in a very attractive design. It provides an easy natural-language event entry interface designed in such a way that you can see the details "fly" into place as you type; not only is it fun to watch, it lets you make sure that the etnry is being added properly and make those complicated changes that the natural-language algorithim can't pick up.

There are some changes I'd liek to see. I'd like tome more functionality added to the menu bar icon itself -- for example how about changing the color when the user is 15 minutes away from an event in a designated calendar? It also looks out of place, both in color and black-and-white. That's a quibble, though, and the app does what it promises and does it well.

Go-to calendar app for fast-creating and viewing upcoming events at a glance.

There are a few apps out there that try to do this "Natural Language event creation" thing. I have a few of them. None of them comes close to Fantastical's ability to correctly parse my meaning out of a phrase. I can get some pretty complicated sentences in there and somehow it figures it all out. The quick view of all my upcoming events is also the easiest I've used, and I love that it supports BusyCal for opening a given day in a more detailed view.

I do use BusyCal for viewing my calendar in a more calendar like format, but its natural language processing is less accurate than Fantastical's, and with Fantastical's quick view of all my upcoming events it's rare for me to need anything more complicated.

I use this app literally every day, many many times a day.

Very useful, very easy

Fantastical is a very good and very easy to use app. It lives in the menu bar (using its tiny patch of screen real estate to show the current date), where you can easily access it at any time to quickly add an event or reminder to your calendar. The process is almost completely frictionless, and it is not at all hard to work it into your normal patterns and habits. It’s difficult for me to imagine anyone not finding it a worthwhile purchase, regardless of there normal calendaring and reminder-managing workflows or behaviours.
