Great menubar calendar that makes updating my calendar a snap. Never had a problem with it! Got is as part of a Parallels purchase bundle. Now, as for Fantastical2, the price is $39. I won't be upgrading for that price since OS X comes with a decent usable calendar. To Fantastical, you need to come up with an enticing upgrade price for FC1 users because $39 is overpriced IMHO for software that competes with FREE in OS X.

This is continues to be my main daily business calendar. When Apple split Calendar to have Reminders as a separate app, it made no sense to me. Events and tasks should be in the same program. Well Fantastical is a better calendar and reminder app than either of Apple's apps are individually. My only complaint is there's not enough contrast in the light theme mode, so I have to use the dark theme mode. Other than that, it's the best calendar/reminder app I've used on the Mac.

Love it. It's been my default calendar and reminder app on my Mac and iOS devices for years. I do wish completed reminders would sync more quickly (i.e; marking a reminder completed on one device may mark the reminder completed on another device, but you're still presented with an alert for that same reminder on other devices, especially if that reminder is for a recurring event).

Wish I could have used it to bring Google, Apple and Exchange calendars together all in one place. - but it required two factor for Apple (no thx) and wouldn't use my Exchange credentials to sync. Oh well - tried it and deleted it.

Two-factor authentication is vitally important on any device that supports it.

It may be a PITA, but probably much less so than having your personal data/pics stolen and circulated on the WWW.

Do you recall the iCloud celebrity photo leaks in 2014?

Those accounts were hacked because they used weak passwords and iCloud security was weak - it did NOT use two-factor at the time.

In Sept. 2014 Apple posted the following statement to its website.

"Update to Celebrity Photo Investigation

We wanted to provide an update to our investigation into the theft of photos of certain celebrities. When we learned of the theft, we were outraged and immediately mobilized Apple's engineers to discover the source. Our customers' privacy and security are of utmost importance to us. After more than 40 hours of investigation, we have discovered that certain celebrity accounts were compromised by a very targeted attack on user names, passwords and security questions, a practice that has become all too common on the Internet. None of the cases we have investigated has resulted from any breach in any of Apple's systems including iCloud® or Find my iPhone. We are continuing to work with law enforcement to help identify the criminals involved.

To protect against this type of attack, we advise all users to always use a strong password and enable two-step verification. Both of these are addressed on our website at

In other words, Apple says this leak wasn't due to any holes in iCloud or Find My iPhone. The celebrity accounts were specifically targeted and likely breached because of weak passwords and a lack of two-step verification."

Two-factor authentication is an extra layer of security for your Apple ID designed to ensure that you're the only person who can access your account, even if someone knows your password.

App-specific passwords allow you to sign in to your account securely when you use third-party apps with your Apple ID.


If you want to improve the security of your account, but don’t have devices that can be updated to iOS 9 or OS X El Capitan, you can set up two-step verification for your Apple ID.
