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.

I'll say right up front, I'm with you all, I hate subscriptions, too. I've abandoned many an app that went subscription, but not Fantastical. It's exactly what I wanted and always dreamed a calendar app would be, but no one else came close. There are exactly two subscription apps I use, this and 1Password... and they both have the same palatable aspect. They have a reasonable annual cost versus adding on to the massive pile of monthly bills our lives all incur already. And looking at the value it provides for a one time cost for an entire year, I figured I could handle it. Not to mention, many apps of this caliber will have a major paid upgrade every 1-2 years, it ends up not being that much of a difference in the big picture.

I used to love and use Fantastical 2 every day. Moving to the subscription model is too much for me. I thought I would be able to continue to use Fantastical 2 on MacOS 10.13.6 (my mac can’t upgrade to a higher version), but I find that it crashes. I located the problem: the syn with Google Calendar. The lack of google integration is annoying, but as long as I use the ickoud calendars only, everything is fine. I don’t use Fantastical on iOS, but Calendars 5, a paid app by Readdle, very good.

It hurts me very much to give Fantastical a bad review. In the past I loved Fantastical 2 (until it developed some problems with the synchronization recently). When I watched Fantastical 3, I was highly shocked: A calendar app with subscription? No, thanks. I understand that a subscription has many advantages for developers, but years ago I left 1Password for the reason, now I will leave Fantastical 3. A price of almost 60 dollars per year is just too much - thanks, but no thanks.

MU Staff. The $3.33 is the monthly price with a year's subscription. Billed monthly, it's $4.99

I loved Fantastical, but found the subscription rate to be a bit too expensive. Also, I wan't happy using the companion on my iPhone, as it doesn't have the same features Reminders has (allowing converting an email to a reminder that you can click on and see the original email). So even though I could keep on using the v2 features, they weren't enough. The v3 features would make this a more useful app than Apple's apps, but given the new pricing model, I'll have to pass. If you definitely need the v3 features and can afford the subscription, I'm sure this app will deliver what you're expecting. But with nearly everything wanting a subscription. the cost of paying for all of them would be many $hundreds / year, and that's just too much.

I will Never Never Never pay for a subscription! Just as I had to give up 1Password after being a long time user and fan, I will toss Fantastical and never give it a second thought as I switch to a more deserving (meaning less greedy) app developer and their product. If other people would simply say NO, the subscription model would go the way of the dinosaur. Sad to say, but most consumers are weak-minded and passive.

I see a lot of people are upset about the new subscription model. I do agree it's *way* overpriced (do the math: after 5 years you'll have paid $200!), but as a purchaser several years ago, the now-paid features I use (like multiple calendar sets and duplicate combining) haven't been taken away. Having said that, I don't use most of the premium features anyway (tasks, invites & scheduling, Hangouts/Zoom, templates), so do with that what you will. Having said all that, Fantastical is still the best calendar app for Mac by leaps and bounds, with a much better UI and features nobody else has. The calendar sets are a huge improvement over every other app (with a keystroke, I can quickly switch between work calendars, private calendars, and calendars I share with family), the Menu Bar UI is great, v3 finally makes the full-screen view an actual app that you can reach via CMD+TAB. Shortcomings: User cannot choose to show empty days in the scrolling view (I want to see my empty days!), all-day events with short names appear side-by-side instead of in a list (which makes events just look like a jumble), I'd prefer timed events to be in a colored bar just like all-day events instead of just having a colored dot (should be an option), and v3 changed the Menu Bar dropdown to be white on top, so the fields for entering new events and searching now blend in with the calendar instead of standing out like they should. So, in short, leaps and bounds better than any competitor, but room for improvement, and yes, the new subscription pricing is way too much. Fantastical has always been pricy, but changing from $50 once to $40 *per year* is ridiculous, and this bad choice is going to hurt the app's market share and discourage new user uptake, which is a shame because Fantastical is fantastic.
