  • Essential Features

    By DanStandage
    I love the app. Bought the macOS version too and getting good use out of them. Feature request: Add option for an alarm in addition to an alert. I manually set alarms five minutes prior to A call or meeting, which allows me to stop whatever I’m doing and prepare for the color the meeting. Alerts or nice for the computer, but when you need a break away from another call the conversation, and alarm is great. Contributes to good flow, because you don’t worry about missing a notification or meeting as you devote all your mental energy to the task at hand until the alarm goes off.
  • This is NOT a fully functioning iPhone to AppleWatch app.

    By JimJack58
    This is not a fully functioning iPhone to AppleWatch app. Tech Support states that if you use a MDM (mobile device management) tool on your iPhone (such as Blackberry Work/MobileIron/AirWatch), this app will not work on your Watch. Well, if you work for any reputable firm or corporation, you will me using an MDM tool. All it shows for me on my watch are reminders. I need to at least see my next appointment/meeting. The tech support provides numerous “fix” solutions, but really it should not be this difficult to work. Don’t advertise something that really isn’t there. Yes, it works great as a phone app, but so does The Tiny Calendar, Google Calendar and Outlook App. I ended up simply adding the default iPhone Calendar and The complications on my watch and I use Siri AND Alexa to add information. That was FREE! I paid for Fantastical for nothing.
  • Great Design - great calendering tool

    By drewswaycool
    I'm a big fan of the design that has gone into this calendar app. My first choice would have been BusyCal but they struggle in the design area. I only hope for greater functionality to match BusyCal... But otherwise this app is a solid winner.
  • Great Custom Recurring Events!

    By ericisback
    Did you know that the standard iPhone calendar, Google Calendar, and even the desktop Google Calendar can’t set up an event that reoccurs on “the last weekday of the month”. I asked G suite several times to improve their functionality - to no avail. Well this app’s functionally regarding reoccurring events is second to none! It’s as good, or better, that Exchange. If you can think up a way for an event to reoccur, this app can probably set it up. If it can’t, no other app will be able to do it! I hated to jump ship with google calendar, but I just couldn’t continue to have to keep a windows desktop program on my PC, that adds events, just to get the functionality I get with this app!!!
  • Used to be great

    By betshsu
    But something in the past year has made it almost unusable — I assume an iOS update but not positive since I can’t find anyone reporting similar issues (iPhone 6s). Now it tends to be extremely slow to respond and often freezes. Makes it difficult to add new information or even scroll through my calendar. Frustrating.
  • Difficult to read

    By AB_Preach
    Needs a more simplified layout. Ugly on the iPad. Deleted after several years.
  • Poor implementation. Not enough user choice

    By Alpharettan
    When I see a product that touts itself as an improvement over the default app, charges you separately for MacOS and iOS versions a d has nearly zero mechanisms for tailoring the views or options, it’s a #fail. This is not “fantasti-anythig”
  • My favorite calendar but..

    By itsmohaa
    This is the best calendar app but it needs a refresh.
  • Watch Complications

    By fogelnet
    Decided not to work as expected. This app drives me crazy. Had to reboot watch
  • Very Neat and Practical But

    By AwesomeFeeling
    It would be super amazing if you add the “current date” in the app icon( you can give us options , add an icon or two and let us choose). I’d recommend this calendar for everyone it’s really amazing but there are always room for improvements.
