    Okay everyone, I want to know your personal views on what is the best calendar apps to use on Mac, iPhone and iPad! I have always used the default Apple app, but I am interested in the other options out there

    Calendars 5 by Readdle is also a great calendar app. I like it because of the functionality and features. Keeping up with events is just easier with more options.

    What makes fantastical great is how intuitive it is. You type lunch with Michael at 3pm on Tuesday and bam it's all set

    They both sound good, do they sync really well across devices like the default app does?

    And can you transfer events from the default Calendar app to these other 3rd Party applications, because I have so many entered, and I wouldn't want to have to enter them all again

    This. Fantastical is so much better than stock. This is just an example. Watch a video of the app and check out the features. Decide if it's useful to you. It sure is to me.

    All my calendars sync up perfect. I use google colander as my main calendar but they all work well.

    Thanks! I will certainly do that, Fantastical sounds like the most popular choice at the moment.

    It looks amazing actually! The one thing I have heard though is that you have to buy it for iPhone, buy it for iPad, and then buy it for Mac..
    How much would that cost in total?

    Around 40$ for all of them, which isn't bad value really

    I bought Fantastical a while back but ended up deleting it.

    The Native calendar app is great and I use Siri to set my appointments you can't beat that. Takes a while to get good at telling Siri how you like your app set but when you do she gets good at it

    I've tried a significant number of Calendar apps. My favorites are Fantastical (for the reasons that members above have mentioned plus it has a URL scheme so I can use it in conjunction with LaunchCenterPro) and Week Calendar. Week Calendar has a nice week layout, intuitive zooming in on a day, and the best timezone support I've used. It allows you to follow the time zone of the phone (which is just convenient), but you can also set it to always ask you for the timezone when adding/editing. It's the only app I can remember that does this so easily. If you travel across timezones and need to enter appointments for other timezones, it helps a lot. (There are also icons, custom colors, etc., in Week Calendar, but I rarely use them.)

    If you download the iPhone version, you get the iPad version too. No need to pay extra for the iPad version. I heard of a new app called iCal, but I never use the calender except for checking what day it is. iCal syncs perfectly with other online calenders. Not sure if that's what you're looking for.

    I don't think that is true, an iMore article said that you must purchase each separately. It isn't a universal app

    Thanks, I will have a look at iCal as well, and see how it is! I am a fairly heavy calendar user and my whole life is organised on there, so it needs to have a lot of features

    I know you can't do if with the native app. When I am in a meeting I prefer not to talk to my phone and ask it to
    Schedule something for me. Much easier to type.

    Are you being sarcastic? iCal is the native calendar app in OSX, and in iOS for all I know ...
