These are all unconfirmed of course, but you won't have to wait long to find out!
Fantastical 2 is one of our favorite calendar apps. It's an absolute workhorse that connects with iCloud, Exchange, Google, Yahoo and more, giving you one great big unified calendar.
New Features on the way
With new capabilities on the way, there's never been a better time to get on board.
Fantastical 2 is a workhorse of a calendar app that can connect to your iCloud, Exchange, Google, Yahoo, fruux, and CalDAV accounts. It then imports all of your daily event information into one unified calendar, which can be displayed as a full month along with daily, weekly, or yearly options. You can also display a daily event list on the left side with detailed information on everything you've got going on today. Better still, Fantastical allows for custom calendar sets with specific accounts tagged in them, time zone support, and more.All these features mean it comes with a $50 price tag, but the extra money's worth it

$50? For a calendaring app for Mac? I use their iPad and iPhone app but $50 is laughable. No way.
$50 for a calendar app that has been in development for many, many years and is considered to be one of the best, if not the best calendar app for the Mac. It's worth $50 to me, especially with all these horrible subscription prices from other apps lately.
Guess I should count my chickens, now Fantastical has gone to subscription pricing 🤬. Before subscription pricing, I was more than happy to pay for a single purchase
