Just enter "Lunch with Elon in Palo Alto on Friday" and Fantastical 2 will schedule it! Or type in "todo buy milk at 5pm" and a reminder will alert you at 5PM! If your device supports dictation, you can speak the details for your event or reminder and Fantastical 2 will handle the rest.

OK but missing features Apple Calendar has.

Don’t like that the app badge doesn’t display the date by default. Has to be chosen as an alert feature and if done, the badge won’t display if you receive an invite. Month view doesn’t show what the current day is.

The best and most intuitive Calendar/Reminder app available

Fantastical 2 is the absolute best and most intuitive Calendar/Reminder app available! After I tested it out in my Mac, I suggested to my wife that she try it too. We were both so blown away at all the features and the slick, easy to use functions that we purchased the Mac app and then the iPhone app. Even though you can use it with google cal if you want, we didn’t want to. So we moved all our data from google and transferred it to iCloud. Now we’re google-free and loving our Fantastical 2 Calendar/Reminder interface! Either way, if you get Fantastical, you won’t be sorry.

Simply the best calendar ap on the planet!

The developers at Fantastical not only created the most user-friendly ap for planning and scheduling events, but they listen to their users and get it done right. What more could one ask for?

Love the dots on month view!

As a busy mom of 3, I love the different colored dots under each date on the monthly view! One of my favorite features of the calendar. Great for at a glance info!


It was great 6 years ago, it has not aged well

Looking Dated

Fantastical is in serious need of a design refresh. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great calendar app, but it hasn’t changed much in the past several years. I think it needs some design love!

I love this calendar, BUT...

I love this calendar, except for one thing; I enter game day & times for three different sports teams. On the first line I enter XXXX VS. XXX, or XXXX @ XXX then I go to SHOW DETAILS to enter the time. Very often, when I click on that, part of what I typed on the first line, moves to the second line, and usually the VS or @ disappears completely. Very frustrating, especially when I'm inputting a 30 game schedule.

So Easy
Jock Lohn

It’s so easy to add and update events... How you’d think it should be.

Was skeptical at first..

I wasn’t sure if I wanted a calendar app but have been eyeing this app for quite some time now. Let me just tell you it was the best decision I could’ve made! I love being able to write a sentence in and it gathers all the info and makes it into an event for me! Plus having my reminders right there and being able to add new ones just makes it that much better. Didn’t know a app could help my organize my life like the way you guys did! Thank you! 💙

Final Touches

I tmhave been using this app for almost two weeks now and it has completely transformed the way I interact with, and more importantly, how often I actually use my calendar! I’ve actually purchased several other calendar apps and while they all were supposed to be “amazing” ( at least according to the reviews), something about them made it seem too... daunting. Enter Fantastical. It’s really a big improvement over the standard calendar app and it is definitely worth the money. I love the natural language input function and the overall functionality of the app. It works extremely well and has many handy features like automatically adding an event to you calendar when it’s detected in your inbox (think: you purchased concert tickets and once you receive the confirmation email it will auto-create a fully filled in calendar event) With that being said, I would love some customizability in terms of the color scheme and the window layout. Also, GET RID OF THE “DOT SYSTEM” for tracking events. It’s really confusing and unacceptable to look at.
