Hands down, best calendar for Mac

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.

The Paid version is awesome, great upgrades all the time and syncs with all the things you need to sync with.

Pros

I love the way that calendar looks, it's clean but colourful and I like my calendars to be fun to use. After a year or so of using the free version I explored other options as there was an issue with "asking for authorisation key" constantly that I could not get rid of.
Ultimately after trying others I realised that nothing else was as easy or enjoyable to use (and the learning curve to learn something new was not worth it!) so I switched to the paid version to get access to the support and additional features. I use it so often that it was worth the investment for me. Whether due to product upgrades or using paid version the error message no longer appeared and Fantastical and I have been playing along happily ever since.

Cons

I'm not such a fan of the new way that you set the times, with this 24 hour format that highlights the first 2 digits and then the others in scroll type fashion. I preferred it as it was before which meant it was easier to change the time just with the keyboard (less errors that way)

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!

displays more info in a smaller window than Apple Calendar, can be customized to suit any need

Pros

customizability, ease in creating events, different views to allow more info in a small window is very helpful

Cons

it's a little buggy at times, but recent releases have been better; sometimes has issues syncing with my Gmail calendar, but that may be on my end

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
