Pros and cons of Fantastical 2 for iPhone app for iPhone and iPad

Fantastical 2 for iPhone app good for

Overall a good app. Its my long time go to calendar app that I depend on - but Im feeling a bit wary. Ive noticed a bug which pretty much makes 3D Touch quick actions from the iPhone home screen pretty much unusable: Selecting + New Event from quick actions and then entering an event (e.g. Haircut at 1500 for 30 min) results in the event being created for the last date I viewed in the app (e.g. some date in the past). This is pretty serious. Please fix this.
Had to find something to replace Sunrise now that its finally being shut down. Read around and couldnt escape Fantastical recommendations. Very pleased I followed those recommendations. Does everything Sunrise did and more. Well worth the investment on both iOS and OS X.
Awesome overall app but wish there was more customization options.
This is a great app for those who need to see their calendar and reminders all in one screen. I use this app multiple times a day and it works great!! I would like to see some additional theme colors available for this in the future and I would like the ability to see birthdays appear on my calendar for several days prior to the event.
Love this app! Works easily- just type in what you want to add and it does it for you. Easy to follow. Love it!
I love the infinity scrolling through days. As I subscribe to multiple work and family calendars, the clarity it provides is unmatched, and is way better than seeing my day in messy overlapping blocks. And the "natural language" makes it possible to input events in seconds instead of minutes. Worth the money to get the desk top app as well. I have been using Fantastical for 2 months now and I could never go back.

Some bad moments

Still no option to hide passed appointments for a specific day. Not great UX for those of us with very busy days...
This is a decent enough app for my iPhone and worth the $5. HOWEVER I dont think its worth another $10 for the privilege of loading it on my iPad.
Im frustrated with the lack of a visual view of my day. I prefer to see blocks of time on a daily timeline like all other calander apps.
I couldnt believe the lack of features after paying such a steep price for a calendar app. It hardly does anything more than the Apple calendar app.
After reading reviews of many apps and trying several Calendar apps I decided to go ahead and pay for this one. The pictures displayed show different colors and in the description it states that you can color code the calendar. Mine is black-and-white. I have gone through all the settings I could find and cannot get any color at all. It synced fine with my Google account and my calendar items are on there without color. It may seem trivial but that is one of the main ways I organize my calendar and I feel cheated that I was misled. I contacted support and have not heard anything from them. I would like my money back.
Update update: Keeps messing up in syncing with Apple Watch and Reminders. Keeps bringing back old completed reminders. Not sure why, but really annoying. Update: seems to be fixed again. Removing one star because sometimes syncing with Apple Watch doesnt work. Luckily I wasnt relying on the information on my Apple Watch alone. Only was broken for half a day this time after like 2 months of flawless working, so not a huge deal. Still well worth the money. Could be Apples or Watchs fault I suppose. Old one star review: Synced flawlessly with Apple Watch for over a month, now its broken again. The correct information displays on the fantastical app on my phone, and the correct information displays on my reminders app, but the watch app shows no events for today when there should be. When I open the app on my watch, its showing yesterdays events as overdue and doesnt show anything for today. Tried deleting, restarting etc. Super frustrating because thats why I bought the app, so I could see my reminders and events on my large complication on my watch. When it works its really helpful and awesome, when it doesnt work its really frustrating. This happened before, then got fixed, so not sure why this keeps happening.
