Mac Tools Calendar Review – Fantastical

A calendar for mac tools can help you keep the track of important dates, such as weddings, birthdays and work commitments. It’s easy to double book yourself or miss important appointments without a calendar for mac tools. There are a variety of well-designed apps that help to stay on top of your schedule. The most effective apps adhere to Apple’s design guidelines. They include macOS notifications such as Today Widgets (Today Widgets), menu bar icons and multi-account sync. They also support color-coding and simple guidelines.

Fantastical is a highly efficient menu bar calendar that has a user-friendly interface as well as a wealth of features. It’s not as Apple-y like other calendars, but it does what most people want from the calendar. The left panel, for example doesn’t display the calendars in your account which is a waste of space as is the case with most apps. Instead, it offers space for an agenda view and for reminders. The UI concentrates on the smallest of details. For example in the event that an event occurs in two calendars at a time, Fantastical will display it with a pinstripe pattern in order to show which calendar it’s in.

The free version is more than sufficient for most people. However, the Flexibits subscription at $6.99/month includes the Calendly style scheduling feature, numerous customizable features, and a variety of Calendar Sets, which you can switch between depending on the current Focus mode is in use or not. It also integrates with Trello and Todoist that lets you yank tasks from those services into your calendar.
