  • Very Good App

    By V&49
    I was a Pocket Informant user for years, but PI has become a bloated, confusing, expensive mess. Your app is much better: visually pleasing, clean (i.e., not cluttered with unnecessary tasks, buttons, etc), and user-friendly. Only one minor quibble: I’m not a fan of the wheel for putting in dates and times. Typing in that information would be much easier. Perhaps you could make that an option in a future version?
  • Does not work on Apple Watch Series 3

    By Rockford Rogue River
    I followed all of the tips online to try to get the watch to sync and never could. The watch simply says “No Events”. Even when I make an event using the watch, it is not visible on the watch, but shows up on my phone. Trying to get my money back. Complete waste of time.
  • Detailed month view option a must, year view also

    By arielers
    I wish that with all the good load of features this app has, that I could get a month view with all my events labeled/colored. I am presently using Google Calendar mainly bc it offers this feature, plus it’s free! I would love to go back to using this app, but especially with the larger iPhone plus screen, detailed month view and year view (like the native iOS calendar app) should have been a default feature.
  • Google Reminders not displayed

    By ashootr45
    This is a great calendar app but none of the reminders that I have in Google Calendar show up.
  • Pitiful Widget Integration

    By landonpauley
    In our fast paced world, opening the app and looking at today's events is second-rate. No matter what I do, Fantastical's widget is impossible to work with. It almost never loads, and when it does load it takes way too long. Fantastical is my go-to app for the time being, but this may be the deciding factor for me.
  • Take note Apple!

    By MTMEnterprise
    This is what a calendar should be made of, period.
  • Loved it, until changes to my events didn’t save

    By jordank1986
    I started realizing changes to events I made were not actually saving. Most recently I changed a dentist appointment in my phone I. Fantastical which didn’t actually save. It’s the weekend now and if it turns out it’s Monday I could have a $25 charge from my dentist for missing my apt. Grrrrr. Calendar apps are pointless if they can’t actually save events.
  • Bugs in latest update

    By restorian770
    I love Fantastical 2 overall, but the latest update is a disappointment. When trying to enter information in the main fields, those spaces are obscured by the numerical keyboard. When you tap on more details to enter additional information, the keyboard forces the fields you are trying to enter info in to disappear above your field of vision.
  • Best app I’ve found!

    By Courtsoltvedt
    I don’t write reviews... and I never pay for apps, but I did this one- and I’m so glad I did! This app has been a life saver for me. I love the dictation feature. I also love that you can just type and write “Monday” and it adds it to Monday on the calendar! I can mark off reminders as I do them- I can set alarms, which helps in my time blocking. It syncs with my husband iOS calendar so I can have all the calendars in one spot! Check out the helpful hits when you get it- make a world of difference!!
  • Love this calendar app

    By Hsnuggle
    This is by far my favorite calendar app. I have a very busy schedule with 5 kids who are all involved in school and sports, working full time with volunteer jobs. I love that I can choose the different colors to distinguish my different event types. I also ‘invite’ my husband and he does the same , so our calendars are always synched. The only complaint is that I would like to be able to delete some holidays. There are way too many US holidays and it’s just an extra ‘dot’ on the day and I don’t want it there.
