Editors' Review

+

Fantastical for Mac is a compact tool to help you manage your Calendar and Reminders, all from one convenient interface with just a few clicks. Once you've linked all of your accounts to this app, you can instantly access appointments, make new entries, and prioritize tasks right from the app's drop-down main screen.

Pros

Easy access: The app sits in the top Menu Bar, and when you click on it, the interface appears like a drop-down menu, with a calendar on top and lists of Reminders and upcoming appointments below. Clicking on a day on the calendar shows you any events scheduled for that day, and you can quickly add items directly by double-clicking on the date. You can also configure a hotkey to bring up the interface, if that's more convenient for you.

Consolidation: When you set up this app, it will locate and ask you to log in to all of your calendars to consolidate the information they contain. That means that when you pull up this app, you can see all of your upcoming tasks, meetings, and more in one place, so it's easier to keep track of everything.

Cons

Setup time: Since you do have to give permission for the app to access all of your calendars and reminder accounts, the setup for this program can be a little time-consuming. You also need to make sure you check the box to save the log-ins for each account as you go so that you don't have to log in to each again the next time you open the program.

Bottom Line

Fantastical is a good tool to help you stay on top of everything you have to do in a day. It's convenient to access, and you can quickly add or edit items straight from the app. You can try it for free for 14 days, and it costs $14.99 to buy.

"Great little app"

May 06, 2014  |  By gbdoc

 |  Version: Fantastical 1.3.15

Pros

Easy (= immediate) accessibility to calendar, easy view of events, easy entry of events. Very good, responsive customer support.

Cons

None for me. Does what it advertizes.

Summary

Can't think why anyone wouldn't find it helpful, can't understand the bad critiques.

"Taskbar on a mac?"

April 30, 2014  |  By joanvassar

 |  Version: Fantastical 1.3.14

Pros

None that I can see

Cons

First line of description: Fantastical is a powerful app that sits in your taskbar

Seriously? I have a menu bar but no taskbar. I'm pretty sure that's a windows term/feature. I'm always suspect of applications that don't pay attention to these details.

"Wonderful Calendar App"

December 19, 2011  |  By straittalker77

 |  Version: Fantastical 1.1

Pros

Great menu bar utility. Ease of set-up and use. Quick, easy, and clean. Seamless integration with iCal and iCloud.

Cons

A bit on the pricey side for a calendar app, but worth it.

Summary

Fantastical is a wonderful calendar app that works hand in hand with iCal and iCloud. It works great and makes interacting with iCal that much easier. It syncs very fast and makes adding, updating, and changing events a breeze. This app has quickly become one of my daily go-to apps. Also, the animations are fun and give the app a magical feel.

"The front end iCal should have had all along"

July 10, 2011  |  By hampton--2008

 |  Version: Fantastical 1.0.2

Pros

Makes entering events a snap. Very good at intuiting what I type. Has saved me a lot of time.

Cons

It's not perfect, so but what is?

Summary

If you are frustrated with how inelegant entering dates into iCal is, then you should really try this app out. I never open iCal to enter events any more.
