  • Pretty intuitive but needs some changes

    By DJ Paul M
    I think my biggest issue with the iPhone version is that it doesn’t give me a daily visual view (other than agenda view) while the iPhone is held vertically. This feature is the default view for the iphones normal calendar app so I’m not sure why they can’t mimic that. It works great in horizontal mode though, just odd to keep switching the way I’m holding my phone
  • Warning! Deletes all history!

    By Tnlawgirl
    I'm horrified that after using this app for months, suddenly my entire history has been wiped clean! Do not use this app if you need your history.
  • Not as advertised!

    By Alpha,Bravo,Charlie
    It is an average app. I wanted to use a calendar app mainly for notifications on my apple watch. You do not get notifications directly on your watch, you only have the option to display fantastical complication on your watch face and thats it! I mistakenly purchased it thinking it will notify me on my apple watch like ical but i am disappointed. I wish i had the option to return it.
  • Good for Reminders Only

    By wa2be
    I tried using this app for both calendar events and reminders, but the daily view that shows everything as a long list is not easy to decipher. I would greatly prefer a daily view option that shows graphically what the day looks like, ie blocks for each event. Maybe this isn’t a big deal for others but i have a very full calendar every day and find it is not easy to quickly glance at Fantastical to see what is coming up next. I ended up downloading another calendar app that has the view I’m needing and I only use Fantastical for my reminders as I’ve found it’s absolutely the best and easiest to use reminder app, particularly with Siri integration.
  • Fantastic App but Watch needs work

    By Bengaroo
    I love this app and the today widget is awesome. However, on the Apple Watch, the complication does not cooperate with what I want it to show.
  • Still requires Apple calendar

    By Dc278
    I felt like the description was misleading because it sounds like a complete replacement to the Apple or google calendar. But it still requires one of those to work. So it is an add on. There are free ad on options that will get the job done, if that is what you are looking for. But for me, the search continues
  • This has been a long time application on my phone

    By iToNeG
    It's very similar to native calendar and reminder app but picks up where apple left off. I wish we could change that red title bar to a color of our choice. Even customizing home screen icon would be great. This application leaves out all the confusing views and just keeps things simple and to the point. My only issue is with reminders. They load into fantastical but are sorted alphabetical. They do not mirror the same sort that u have in the native reminders application. Application also doesn’t allow you to drag and drop to move around. I tried another 3rd party application and the reminders mirrored native application and also allowed for rearranging drag and drops. So I know it’s not an Apple limitation but a fantastical strong arm. Hopefully that could be changed in the future. My favorite part is the today screen widget. Full month view that u can scroll and also add events from.
  • Slow & unresponsive on iPhone 7 and Watch

    Unfortunately apple didn't let me return this order.
  • Way to not show muslim holidays?

    By Industrial Emgineer
    So the developer says turn off holidays. What a useless response. I’d like to keep our traditional US holidays. Just want foreign muslim holidays out of my calendar!
  • Great calendar app.

    By Hansmolemon
    Does pretty much everything I need in a calendar app. Nicely laid out and easy to see events either by month or day by day. The one feature I would love to have is the ability to paste an event to multiple days that I pick out. I do shift work and I don’t work the same days every week and I don’t always start at the same time for each of those shifts. It would be nice to just select the shift time then tap on all the days I am working that shift. Otherwise an all around great calendar, keep up the good work!
