Fantastical 2 for iPhone App Reviews

  • Love This App But...Attachments

    By leoiseau
    I really love this app. I use it daily and it’s, mostly, a vast improvement over the stock calendar. That said, I do understand why there is no attachment support. When I make plans (ie, flights, hotels, reservation confirmations, etc) I like to attach confirmed info so it’s easily accessed while I’m actually out. The stock calendar app includes this ability, the Mac version of Fantastical includes this, as do many other apps. But, for some reason, the iOS version of Fantastical doesn’t have this ability. Add this and, to me, 5-star app.
  • Needs some improvements

    By tlittke2277
    Supposedly there’s a search function - but I can’t get it to work. Pulling down on the calendar just switches between week/month view. Additionally - I don’t like that it doesn’t pick up on cancelled meetings, as far as being able to acknowledge and delete them. I have to go into my calendar app to do that and it just seems like a miss for something that’s rated so high in the App Store. Currently, I don’t feel like this is helping me to be any more productive than my factory calendar app.
  • Daylight Savings Time Glitch 🙃

    By Fyyscbg
    I like the app and I use it often on both my Mac and my phone. That said, there are some issues that I find with the app. These issues stand out given the price of the app. The first is that during daylight savings time, everything on my calendar was moved back by an hour. It seems to me that I will now have to manually adjust everything. For such a smart app, I find that extremely frustrating and disappointing. Secondly, although I love the Reminders section of the app, I wish that we could label/tag certain reminders with either colors or titles/keywords. I also wish we could organize them by theme rather than time. Lastly, Google Calendar (which is free) has a variety of “event” colors whereas Fantasical has 2. I do more things related to just “work” and “home” and I’d like that reflected in my calendar. Please, please make these adjustments or if I’ve gotten anything wrong reach out to me.
  • I never write reviews....

    By Splcshea
    So the fact I AM writing a review should tell you something. This app has helped me to organize my life and I no longer have a need to maintain a handwritten calendar. It allows me to see a day, a week and a month all at one glance. I’ve been able to add my work calendar which has helped tremendously. THANK YOU!
  • Please add more functionality to the Apple Watch.

    By Jacobjballs
    Fantastical is a fantastic app! There is a ton of functionality and well worth the money. That being said, I wish I had the option to use it as a reminders complication on my Apple Watch. I think more functionality and customization when it comes to the watch would be much appreciated. Great companion and integration with Apple iCloud separate lists and calendars.
  • Calendar is too small

    By Repent&TrustJesus-Mark1:15
    Calendar is too tiny .. be nice if they had a setting to give you the choice to have a full calendar.. save your money..
  • Doesn’t sync

    By lexfern
    I love this app but it stopped syncing with my partner’s phone. We’ve tried it all to fix it, and nothing works. Very disappointing.
  • Still no reminders in calendar view...

    By likebliss
    EDIT: Thank you for the response, but you guys aren’t listening! Reminders ARE enabled! I can see the reminders in the LIST of reminders, but I just want scheduled (dated) reminders to appear IN THE CALENDAR (when you turn the iPhone horizontally), the way it does on the desktop app. The desktop has the list of reminders, and the SCHEDULED reminders are ALSO placed in the calendar. I don’t know how to make this any more clear and it’s super frustrating and disheartening to have paid for an app that doesn’t function the same in the mobile version. —— Original review: It’s like you guys are ignoring me. This feature request will not take away from anyone whatsoever. If anything, it will match the desktop app and be more cohesive. Why do you not add scheduled reminders to the horizontal calendar view?? Why?
  • Overrated

    By drjwr
    This app needs a total reworking towards an intuitive UE: There is no monthly calendar as such, which means you can't see groups or patterns of exact entries — e.g., see Calendars 5 or also, on the iPhone, the Google calendar for what an intuitive monthly view should look like; bars on the weekly view are useless — who knows what they communicate; and, empty days don't show in the list, adding to the confusion. It's an app that fails at being quick and intuitive. If you want a dot/agenda calendar just use the native iOS calendar, use Reminders, and save your money. (But, Fantastical does have a good widget.) To the Developer: Thank you for your response, but, honestly, quod erat demonstrandum.
  • Great.. until you have an Apple Watch

    By Josh Mun
    I love fantastical. It makes my life so happy. I have it on my Mac, iPad, iPhone... until I got an Apple Watch. I have an Apple Watch series 4, I don’t put work MDM managed calendars or whatever, just normal google calendars. My Apple Watch un-syncs, every, single, night. Let me be clear: every morning, I open the Watch app, general, reset data sync (multiple times) then my Apple Watch loads up my fantastical data... until I sleep. And then the cycle continues. And then recently: it un-syncs every like 30 minutes. I paid, full price for these apps. And I’m willing to tolerate even the daily inconvenience, and I don’t even write reviews because I just don’t get bothered that much. But I’m writing this review because I am no longer able to use the Fantastical app that I purchased because it doesn’t work. 2 stars because it works everywhere else; 2 star because it doesn’t work on Apple Watch.
