  • Absolute best calendar

    By AronT
    Fantastical does an amazing job at helping me to stay organized by being a single home for all of my appointments. Between iCloud, gmail, and work, I can have one look into my entire day/week/month across all of my calendars and the various providers. I especially love the split-view that shows the current month on top and the list of appointments below. I can see what I have upcoming in the near future and also have a broad view at what's ahead. There are so many more features that make Fantastical great but to put it simply, if you have more than one calendar that you manage then you need Fantastical!
  • Lame Customer Support

    By Phillpsych
    I have used Fantastical for a while. I rely on it. I live by my calendar. I upgraded and bought a iMac desktop. I cannot sync the phone calendar and the Mac calendar. Several emails and they keep pointing me to articles. I am not technical. I am trying to do what the articles tell me to do. it isn't working. These people will not call a customer to walk them through the steps. Appaerntly they think we were all born after 1990. I was born in 1956. i need help and they will simply not provide the help. This is going to FORCE me to buy another calendar app and all my entries for years will be lost. Do they care? No, they have plenty of business and one old man does not matter to them. I'm expremely dissapointed. Avoid these people, they do not care about their customers
  • Best Calendar for the Mac

    And, their support team is fast and thorough.
  • One thousand times better than Calendar app

    By Joel in Brooklyn
    I have been using Fantastical since v1 on both my phone and computer and it's a godsend. On the rare occasions I have to use the standard mac or iOS calendar apps I appreciate Fantastical even more. I have five personal calendars defined on iCloud for my family and one on Exchange for my job and it's an absolute breeze to create, manage, synch, search, etc. Integrates seamlessly with Zoom, Microsoft Teams, and every other conferencing service I've ever needed. I literally could not tell you the last time I scheduled a meeting in Calendar or Zoom directly, but it's been years, as it's so much faster and easier in Fantastical. Most features work identically on Mac and iOS but feel perfectly natural on each platform. Once every couple of years or so I've run into an issue and gotten in touch and tech support was responsive (usually within hours) and extremely helpful and has quickly resolved my problem every time. Try it and within a week - maybe even a day, or even an hour! - you will wonder how you ever lived without it. Absolutely indispensable and worth its price many times over.

    I have had this app at 3 to 4 stars as long as I have used it. A few month ago I decided that it needed to go - as I was culling aps to get focussed - and it really wasn’t giving me the value agains the cost. Then they released 'openings' - OMG ... at a stroke I was in .... I 'cancelled the cancel' ... and then cancelled calendly. BUT - it still didn't do everything that Calendly did - which frustrated me - so kept the rating at 4 star - and no review. Today - it LOOKS like they just fixed that .... so 5 stars and a review. THANKYOU ... awesome app. (And I havent even tried out the new fixes that they have announced - I have that much confidence.)
  • Nice, but so buggy!

    By Goodbye_from_christina
    I have used it for years, but intermittently it just doesn't update things that it appears to have updated. So I miss meetings that I deleted, but no one got the removal from their caledar or reschedule and it doesn't hit my gmail. Burned one too many times. Bye....
  • Best of the Best

    By Choxfan12
    I've been using Fantastical for years, and it only keeps getting better. It does what it needs to, when it needs to, creates efficiencies in my hectic life of consistent scheduling/meetings, and does it with ease across all devices and accounts/platforms. Couldn't be happier with the level of support through customer service... when you have any question, just emial, and they get right back to you with answers. Great app, great support, and relatively speaking, insanely inexpensive.
  • Worth every penny!

    By Mediocre app reviewer
    I have used fantastical on a variety of platforms for years. Yes, it's expensive and duplicates core functions, but it is still worth every penny. The integration between various calendars and reminders is vastly superior to other options and the customer support is very very prompt and helpful. They continually update and add features. It works 100% of the time. Frankly, it's also prettier than any other option. This is one of the few subscriptions that I cannot live without.
  • Great integration with Zoom, Meet etc

    By NapMan
    I replaced Apple Calendar when my company switched to GSuite. I switched as I was looking for better integration and more flexiblity. Fantastical gives me that flexiblity and integreation I was looking for. I found that I love the integration with Meet, Zoom and other conferencing tools. It's very easy to join a meeting directly from the menu bar app. Click on the icon and select "join meeting" and I'm in. I'm a big fan of how easy it is to set up calendar events. Clicking on a date, adding the info above the month, and adding details. All the fields I need are easily accessible from the quick entry. gCal never seems to get this right with only a few items available and the natural language stuff getting entries wrong most of the time.
  • Best calendar app!
