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.

Great app, nice graphics, functional! I wouldn’t swap it for another calendar. Luckily I bought it before it became accessible only through subscription! I just need the basic functions!

I have been a longtime user of Fantastical, although on and off, I have been using it since their first version. I loved the app which I used instead of the Apple calendar apps on all my devices. Now, to push Fantastical 3's subscription plans they stripped Fantastical of basic features such as fullscreen view on iPhone. This is a perfect example of a developer being GREEDY beyond the minimum respect for his longtime customers. I feel cheated out of the basic benefits I had in exchange for a load of crap useless features for me. They know that many of the features they put on their subscription plan are useless for most people, so they ripped some basic features off from the exiting package and shoved them in the paid subscription version. Shameful, really! Not even Apple would do it that away. I will hold on to the app, hoping that Flexibits makes a u-turn. It is perhaps not surprising that I could not find the option to contact them on their webpage. They do not want to talk to us... which says it all.

Fantastical 2 was the best Smart phone calendar ever made. THEN THEY GOT GREEDY AND RUINED IT WITH FANTACTICAL 3. Prior to the update, Fantactica 2 was almost perfect and all features worked well and would work on your Apple Watch. I love this app so much that I bough a copy for my iPhone, my iPad and 4 more copies, one for each of my adult children. Then FLEXBIT GOT GREEDY and turned it into a monthly subscription that brought nothing new I wanted to use. It will no longer work with my Apple Watch and does not even give me the option for a complication on the watch to use. I have written to Flexbit and they only sent me link to suggestions that do not work. They will not work with me on this issue and have ignored my emails for help. I WANT MY FANTASTICAL 2 BACK. ibornery@aol.com

Fantastical’s subscription price is quite reasonable for an app I use on all my devices every day. Very happy with it!

Does not warn of paid upgrade. New subscription option does not fill my needs and is overpriced in my opinion. Managed to downgrade to V2 for now but will switch to a different app. I don't wish to have anything to do with flexibits anymore.

It seems like very time they get the watch version working, they break it in the next version. Now, the watch version no longer gets updated. Totally useless and now Fantastical goes into the trash once and for all. And BTW, the new layout is terrible.
