Fantastical overview

Fantastical is the Mac calendar you'll actually enjoy using.

Creating an event with Fantastical is quick, easy, and fun:
  • Open Fantastical with a single click or keystroke
  • Type in your event details and press return

...and you're back to what you were doing with a shiny new event in your calendar!

Fantastical's natural-language engine is expressive and intelligent, so you can write in your own style. Fantastical also automatically recognizes the location of your event and can even invite people from your Contacts to the event.

What’s new in version 3.8.16

  • Fixed an issue with entering a new task while a previous one was still opened

  • Fixed an issue where creating Microsoft Teams meetings on delegated Microsoft 365 calendars might fail

I never thought I'd find a Calendar app liked so much but Fantastical has won me over. The integration for video / web meetings in particular is excellent. I also like the weather integration as well. Keep up the good work.

So sad. I paid a one time price for (great) software only to have it pulled out from under me. I will not have a calendar app draining my account every month.

Almost without exception, every negative review posted about Fantastical anywhere zeroes in on the pricey subscription - not the app itself, which is simply wrong. I don't like subscriptions, either but it's tough to deny Fantastical its throne in the digital calendar kingdom. If you disregard the subscription and focus on the app, there is simply not a better calendar app out there for macOS, iPadOS, or iOS. None! If the subscription is too steep, then simply don't purchase it. There are a lot of free and less featureful calendar apps out there. But if you want the best, and don't mind paying for it, Fantastical is it.
