  • Requires Third-Party Support to Work

    I downloaded this app, and whenever I try to create a calendar event, I get the message: "There are no calendars set up in Fantastical. Please add your calendar accounts in Fantastical’s preferences under the Accounts tab." When you go to the Accounts tab and try to add a calendar, it prompts you to log into a third-party caldender service. It appears you need to create a calender with a different service in order for this app to work.

    The team at Flexibits have done an amazing job designing a flexible interface that allows me to easily use one app for work and personal calendars across all of my devices. My favorite features: - support for focus filters - beautiful widget on iPhone/iPad - smooth integration of tasks and weather into multiple views - and a thousand more

    I didn't know how much I needed this app until I started using it. It was the single greatest software/process shift of 2023 for me. Highly recommend.
  • Indispensable

    Managing calendars for my work, my personal life, and my family, Fantastical has become an essential tool for keeping organized. Its calendar views help me hide what's not relevant when I need to focus, and its ability to unify calendars across systems like Google, iCloud, Microsoft, and more – not to mention the ease of creating new events in any calendar – make it so that my calendar app works for me, and not the other way around!
  • Great product / missing one major thing

    Been a user for years. The main feature that is missing is the ability to see ones calendar BEFORE getting into the event set up flow. Its the number one reason I still use Google Calendar directly.
  • Impossible to set up.

    What is it that is preventing this from working? I have no idea. i'm completely unable to import my existing calendar data, without which switching to Fantastical makes no sense. Do you perhaps no longer support older versions of Mac OS? if that's the case, it should state that prominently so that people don't waste precious time. I've fooled around with this for about an hour now, but it's not working still. In order to set it up one has to delve into issues that the average person - someone who expects to be able to use an app right away - just isn't familiar with. I give up and will have to delete it from my system. It's disappointing because it appeared at first to be just what I need.
  • Best for Multiple Google Accounts

    I've tried so many ways to juggle all my Google accounts (5 total). This is the first app that I've found has been able to provide ways to see everything all at once and individual calendars without having to individually click each calendar on/off or going in between different Google profiles.
  • Weirdly bad

    Fantastical is probably the most loved calendar app by everyone from podcast hosts to productivity gurus. But when I tried it the experience is much less than stellar: 1. phantom movements. Scrolling the calendar week view on the Mac produces some of the most buggy behavior I've ever seen. Navigating from one week to the other will sometimes jump in into 2018 or get stuck. 2. NLP is unpredictable and fails at the most basic comprehensions. When I use quick entry for an event like "Learn Coding on Udemy", it will create "Learn Coding" and set the physical address to Udemy. I don't know how this is helpful to anyone. 3. Timezone adjustment: as someone who travels a lot it boggles my mind how hard it is to switch a calendar event's time zone. If you create it on EST, it will always read in EST even if your global timezone is now set to PST. 4. Checking for availabilities: One of my favorite features with GCal is that I can easily glance at someone's public calendar availabilities in my org and schedule a meeting. Fantastical not only has no support for this, but forces you to view availabilities in a tiny narrow window after you already created a event with the proposed participant.
  • Gets buggier and buggier over time - no longer worth it

    I'm always afraid to update it because it breaks from updates often. I've had to basically uninstall/reinstall or troubleshoot so many times... I'm really tired of it. With that, it's not really worth any of its features over using Google Calendar since it doesn't "just work" consistently.
  • The calendar app that does it all

    Fantastical might look unimpressive on the surface, but the ease of everything is what makes this app shine. When creating new events, you can type various parameters (color, time, calendar) to edit the event without fussing with dropdown menus. You can invite members to events within the software, and its Google Calendar integration is fantastic. The paid subscription also comes with Cardhop, and I thoroughly enjoy that app as well.
