Flexibits' hyper-efficient, natural-language parsing calendar app first shipped for the Mac in May of 2011. Fantastical for iPhone landed in November of 2012. Now it's April of 2014, three years post-Mac, a year-and-a-half post-iPhone, and because of Michael Simmons and Kent Sutherland, I can't even use the default iPad calendar as an excuse to avoid time management anymore. I'm now a fully organized person. And yeah, I still love to hate them for that.

There are plenty of great alternatives, from simple add-ons to complete calendar replacements that can make keeping track of your day, week, and month faster, easier, and all-around better.

How to add Facebook events to the Calendar app in OS X

For a reason I don't quite understand, a lot of people seem to use Facebook Events in order to plan things and invite people to them. For many of us, it has become an unnecessary evil. The last thing I want to have to do is check not one but two places for upcoming events. Luckily, OS X lets you integrate Facebook Events right into the Calendar app on your Mac. Here's how:

Fantastical 2 brings iOS 7 good looks, Reminders smarts

I hate Fantastical. And I hate Fantastical 2 even more. Except I kinda love them. And I hate that most of all. Thing is, I don't like calendars. They remind me of everything I have to do, and I have far too many of those things, and I don't want to do most of them. I don't even want to enter them into my calendar. I want them to leave me alone. But I don't have that option. So, since I have to do them, and I need a way to remember to do them, I also need a way to make that as quick and painless as possible. And that brings me right back to Fantastical, the one calendar app that's actually quick and painless enough that I have no excuse not to use it. More precisely, Fantastical 2, and even quicker, more painless, flat out better way than even the original. With an iOS 7 redesign. And Reminders integration. And a landscape week view. Dammit.

Hate the new Calendar app in iOS 7? Here are the best App Store alternatives!

While the new, built-in iOS 7 Calendar app is clean, it's a dramatic change from the old one and not a change everyone thinks is for the better. If you've been a die-hard Calendar app aficionado, but now you find yourself looking around for an alternative, you're in luck! There are several really great calendar replacement apps in the App Store, and they can all tie into the same iOS calendar database, so all of your appointments, events, birthdays, and more will "just work" in your new calendar app, the way they always did in the default one. Here are my favorites!
