I've been using the Mac Calendar for years, and it's become extremely buggy lately. I have a lot of old recurring events that I want to delete and it's impossible to do so because even though it looks like they've been deleted, they pop right back up again in seconds. I try to delete that calendar and create a new one, and the old one simply won't delete. Having the same problem on my Mac and on my iPhone. See More

Fantastical makes it really easy to add events using their superb natural language parser. For instance, an entry like "breakfast at 9am at The Diner" will be handled correctly. In addition to their best in class natural language processing, Fantastical has awesome features such as allowing users to append "/work" or "/personal" in order to add events to the specified calendar and setting up abbreviations that will add snippets of text.

When they came out with Fantastical 2 they abandoned the Fantastical purchasers (and it wasn't as stable as it should be). When they come up with Fantastical 3 I can't trust them to not abandon those who buy Fantastical 2 like they did with the original product. See More
When Fantastical 2 came out, those of who paid for the previous version "Fantastical" are now unable to use it because they stopped releasing security updates, it also has multiple sign-in glitches. The only way to keep using the app, is to spend another $50 and buy a license for Fantastical 2. See More
Fantastical 2 allows grouping calendars and changing which ones are displayed based on those groups. You can also set it up so that certain groups are shown based on your location. For example, you could have one group of calendars shown when at work and another group when at home. See More
That's simply not true. The initial Dropdown list has 30 minute or 60 minute intervals, depending on default, but you can schedule to the minute. here's a test I just did (you simply enter the time start and it will add on the default interval which you can also edit): Wednesday, 1 August 17:02 – 18:05 30 minutes before 17:02 - 18:13 Organiser: Kevin personal Kevin personal Time Scheduling is actually a pro of Google Calendar See More
Reminders are brilliant because if the do not get done, they automatically get moved to the next day. Viewing them is a bit problematic because GC rolls them up if you have more than one. Tasks are excellent as well, BUT the caveat is that you can have Reminders or Tasks, but not both. This is a rather stupid limitation, but because reminders actually roll over (and therefore do not get forgotten) I use them instead of tasks. See More
Pocket Informant has just changed its pricing model in V5. Previously, you could sync tasks and calendar for a one-off $5.00 (Calendar free, tasks with the task pack through Apple reminders). Now, you need to purchase their sync for $25 a year. See More

The app stores user information and credentials on outside servers which is a violation of ActiveSync password requirement policies. These security concerns have been enough of an issue that European Parliament has banned its members from using the app out of fear that it might lead to leaking sensitive information. See More
In addition to showing contact information, the People section of Outlook can show all conversations you've had with a person. Moreover, if you're looking for someone that's not in your contact's list, but is in your company's or school's directory, Outlook can pull that information through integration with Global Address List (GAL). See More
Microsoft Outlook comes with built-in cloud storage browser allowing you to attach files directly from services such as Dropbox, Box, Google Drive or OneDrive to calendar events and directly open attached files without the need for the main cloud storage app. See More
