Nice app with quirks
I’m a huge fan of Fantastical. I use all versions on iOS and also the Mac app. It’s always been a 5 star app in my mind until the Watch app started acting up. I’ve spent a week back and forth with support and just stopped getting replies. I’m guessing they got frustrated with the problem just like I have.
The watch app will work one day, displaying events on the face via complication. Next day, it will show no events and diving into the app on the watch itself, shows no events, even though the iOS app has events. Odd problem and even more odd it works one day and not the next.
That being said, knocking it down to 3 stars until the Watch app issues are resolved.
Update: The watch app is so inconsistent
I've now considered switching apps. One day it works, 2 days it doesn't. Support has basically stopped.
I really enjoy the app and have for some time. Recently though it's become kind of buggy and the search function no longer works. I'll search terms I know for a fact are in my calendar, but I'll get zero results. I'm also no longer able to accept invitations from Outlook. It will at first appear that I have and then about 10 minutes later will say it couldn't send the response.
Innovative calender, excellent cross platform use
I have tried dozens of calendar apps, and this app is one of the few I like. It syncs perfectly with outlook. For years I have used informant, which fails to link with outlook. My suggestion would be better tools for advanced users
Dimmed Past Events
I really like it but don't like that it dims past events
Just duplicates Gmail calendar
All this app basically does is duplicate the features of the Gmail calendar by pulling all the data from it. I was hoping to maintain a separate calendar for different purposes, but it can't do that.
Not worth the money
After reading countless review about what is the best calendar app, I finally bit the bullet and bought the iPhone version ($5) and the desktop version ($50). Wrong. The syncing between the two is horrible for reminders that either don't show up at all (even after you add them), or they don't sync so my phone will have the reminder but the desktop won't. If there's a free version then fine this is minor, but since it cost so much money, I'm extremely disappointed.
Also, although email customer service is prompt, they keep asking for screenshots over and over and over again (which I sent despite it being an ineffective way to address a syncing problem).
I'll give it a 3 because everything else is good, but definitely not worth the money.
App Itself is Great But...
I love the app on the iPhone but the Watch app has some major issues. For one it constantly seems to hang and/or freeze when opening. Also, the settings don't always sync properly. For example, I have the small complication set to she Weekday & Date. However it will only show the next appointment. I also have the list set to show Many Days but it will only show the next two days.
Many things still wrong after several updates
If they want to be a better app than Calendar, they should try harder. Nothing has changed for over a year.
Still getting duplicates in the reminder list. App does not properly sync reminders. Often you mark them finished, but they duplicate in the list instead.
App does not have travel time, but other calendar apps do.
Trying to duplicate a calendar entry and set the date for next year requires scrolling thru 365 days on a stupid scroll wheel instead of having month, day and year fields.
Often find that adding an entry does not sync to other devices for considerable lengths of time. Have to do all kinds of fiddling with this app to realize new items have been added, while Calendar app displays them immediately.
I'm running current devices with fully updated iOS & app so that's not the reason.
Best calendar app by far.
Great and amazing calendar, just one request!
Great calendar and does everything that it says but it would be nice to be able to attach a picture or document to the calendar under the note section
Still my go too but...
Since updating to 10.3 I don't get apple watch notifications for reminders.
Wonderful organization tool

I have used a paper datebook for 26 years and just started with iCal. I found that I needed to have a separate app for my tasks since it wasn't integrated with my e-calendar, I was forgetting to do these tasks. My mom recommended Fantastical and I now have it on my iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch and just LOVE that when a date is set for a reminder, it appears within that day. I can also simply add to my Reminders and it will appear on the correct date. ( as with my paper lists, I add reminders just to be able to check them off
