Hands down, best calendar for Mac

Used daily for 2+ years

Review Source: Capterra

Its a pleasure to use, and I can't imagine managing my day without it. The fact that it integrates with Todoist is great, so all my outstanding todo's are shown on my calendar for the day too.

Pros
The natural language event adding is wonderful. I can create an event by just typing 'have lunch with Joe next Wednesday at This Restaurant at 2pm', and Fantastical creates the event at the date + time, adds Joe as an invitee, and sets the location to the address of This Restaurant.

Cons
It's perhaps a bit pricey, but when you think about everything you get for the price, it is real value for money and I resubscribe every year.

Overall pretty solid product. That being said, if google calendar had a mac app, I'd stick with just google cal. The mac app is what makes this product worth it.

Pros
- mac app and iOS app - ability to type in words and have Fantastical schedule for me (i.e. Lunch with X on Friday) - Zoom integration to send invites - can add many calendars

Cons
- Syncing of calendars is clunky and setting up all my calenders to work properly was a headache, used google for a bit before figuring it out

It's been great, it's like a one stop calendar, hard to point anything in particular when you have everything you need and more

Pros
The natural language parser is amazing. Another thing I love is the easy integration with Todoist, which I use to keep track of my, well todos. It's a great app. It also integrates with zoom and you can create zoom meeting in there which is very hand. Overall happy with this calendar

Cons
For me the product would be fine, it's just the subscription model I'm not a fan of. I'd have just preferred to pay once, not every month!

Great App for Your Calendar and Tasks!

Overall, I like the app. The updated user interface is clean and easy to navigate and it combines two of my most used productivity tools into a single application.

Pros
I typically use a Calendar app and in a separate reminder app so I really love that both of the apps are integrated into one app, especially since I rely heavily on both my calendar and reminders for work.

Cons
While I like that all of my tasks and reminders appear in the calendar I don't like that I cannot control which task I see because it's pulling from the reminder app on my phone. Any overdue tasks are all assigned to the same day on the calendar.

Great product, but a little pricy

Pros
Fantastical has strong NLP such that when I say "lunch on Friday at noon" it knows exactly what I mean and puts it directly on my calendar. It's really easy to use and integrates well with video conferencing tools like Google and Zoom.

Cons
I wish I could pay a one time fee instead of paying a subscription. Sometimes the calenda syncing is a bit off (but typically straightens out by the end of the day).
