    I have Fantastical 2 and have been using it instead of the stock calendar apps. Since now we can delete the calendar , is it advisable? Is it going to interfere with my Fantastical?

    Fantastical 2 is a good option. But since I'm a To-Do list kind of a person, I find Rainlendar useful. On the other hand, I've also used Informant for Mac which I preferred before that.

    You can delete the stock calendar app. I did a long time ago because I’m also a Fantastical 2 user.

    No, it will not hurt anything to either delete or move the stock calendar app on your device.

    I guess I'm the last of the stock calendar users. It works for what I need it to do.

    I use the stock, because it serves my needs as well. I do have Ultimate Calendar and Super Calendar, but only view those. Events and etc I do on stock.

    I use Google Calendar as a service, but there is seriously nothing that beats the stock Calendar's "travel time" feature, which works with events synced to Google Calendar as well. I will often enter my events with Fantastical but then edit with the stock app to add the travel time.

    Gcal has a travel time feature and it uses Google maps which means they'll navigate to where you want to go, not two counties over

    Just installed again and tried to re-enter a Doctor's appointment that I entered this morning. GCal does not recognize the name of the office, unlike Apple calendar, which had it dead-on, not two counties over (surprising). I entered the street address. Unlike Apple Calendar, GCal still does not tell me the estimated travel time.

    The one thing that bothered me about gcal was when I would input something in it would have a duplicate in it. I downloaded calendar 5 and it has been great.

    Not every day you hear an iPhone user call Safari worthless. What browser are you using as your daily driver?

    Makes sense. Google still has an edge with services. I feel like Apple is slowly catching up though. I only use a few stock apps like Safari, Camera, Messages, News (Yes, I use the News app), etc. I tend to switch between Apple Maps and Google Maps. Everything else is third party.

    I use Spark myself. It’s light years ahead of the stock Mail app and has versions for multiple mobile and desktop platforms. It also syncs my accounts automatically between devices so setup is a breeze on a new device or if I need to restore.

    Do you still have your stock Mail app or you had deleted it?

    Deleting a stock app has never created any major issues for me. My biggest problem with it has been Siri. For instance, if I ask her to play a song she’ll refuse to play it from any other source than Apple Music. If I’ve deleted the Apple Music app she just tells me I need to install it without considering I might be using a different service, in this case Amazon Music Unlimited.

    I don't use Spark because if you have push notifications turned on (and who wouldn't?), Spark stores both your email credentials and your messages on their servers. No thanks. Gmail is my primary email, so I use Google's InBox app, but still keep the stock mail app set up (without notifications) because I find it easier to compose longer messages, and reply to specific messages within a thread of messages, with the stock mail app.

    I'm not quite sure I understand why you'd actually uninstall any stock apps. I just put them in a folder in a home screen far to the right and just ignore the ones I never use.
