Calendar App similar to Fantastical in iOS. The 1 app I still miss even after 4 years since I switched to android is Fantastical - the calendar app on iOS. The notification reminders were annoying because after selecting a mood it entered into the app. Daylio felt like it should be a background tracker but diarium forces me carve time out.
Why do I need to add my accounts manually?
Fantastical on iOS and iPadOS can access your calendars in two ways: using the accounts you have added in iOS or iPadOS or directly via Fantastical, using accounts you need to add manually to the app.
Accessing your iOS or iPadOS calendars through Fantastical empowers you to start working right away. However, this convenience comes at a price: iOS restricts what third party apps can do, which results in a limited and slower experience. This is why we recommend you take a moment to add your calendar and task accounts directly to Fantastical.
To add your calendar and task accounts directly to Fantastical, proceed to Settings → Accounts → Add Account and select your account type.
The benefits of adding your accounts directly to Fantastical are as follows:
Fantastical App For Windows
- Add invitees to events
- Hide events without deleting them
- Look up room and person availability on G Suite and Exchange
- Receive up-to-the-second push updates for Google, Exchange, and Office 365 calendars
- Respond to incoming invitations
- Set custom event colors and Exchange categories
- Set Travel Time and Time to Leave notifications
- View shared calendar notifications on iCloud
Once you have added your accounts to Fantastical, we recommend you go to Settings → Accounts → Accounts from iOS and disable “Calendars from iOS” to avoid seeing duplicate events. We recommend you leave “Reminders from iOS” on, as calendar accounts do not sync the reminders you have set up in the Reminders app on your iPad or iPhone.
Fantastical App For Apple Watch
On the Mac, Fantastical does not access system calendars the way Fantastical does on iOS or iPadOS. It is therefore necessary on Mac to add calendar and task accounts manually in Preferences → Accounts before using the app.
Multi-device users, please note that, for privacy reasons, accounts must be added manually on each device. Fantastical will suggest accounts you have added on your other devices, but they still need to be added manually.
