Still one of my favorite apps
This continues to be one of my most used apps. It is much superior to the native calendar app, and others I have tried. My favorite thing is the way you can see at a glance in month view what you are doing each day, color coded with readable text. My only complaint is that, while it is a cool and helpful feature that when you enter in a time, it automatically schedules it to that particular time, I still would like for it to leave the time as text. I understand why some people would want for it to delete that automatically, but there are some days where I want it only to display the time, as I know based on my color coding it means I’m going in to work, but I go in at different times throughout the week so I like to have the time displayed. Instead it changes my text to “New Event” which is not helpful.. The work around is that when I type in the time, I select and copy the text, then after creating the event, I paste it in again, and then it lets me have that as the text. But that gets a little tedious, so I would like if there were an option in settings that would let the time not be deleted from the text to begin with. (If that makes sense??) Despite this issue, the app works phenomenally and I would highly recommend it to anyone who has an iPhone! It’s definitely improved my life. I’m old enough to remember the days of buying expensive Franklin Covey day planners to schedule my life, and this is much much better than that. 😄

think I'm moving on
Was a 4 and 5 star app but no longer. I used this app for years and liked it. I don't like the new icon, however, changing the dates to dots. (One of the reasons I preferred this over Apple's is because my entries show up with their name/title instead of a dot so why would I want dots on this icon.) The dots wouldn't be a deal-breaker on their own but I'm also tired of the nickel-and-diming for features. This is a paid app for pete's sake, and it is a calendar app--you have to pay extra for US holidays? That is ridiculous. Thank goodness I just have them transfer from the native app. I can see using IAPs for certain features but holidays isn't one. And now they've added another IAP for locations. If this was a 99-cent app it might make sense but it costs a good bit more than 0.99. I also now have another calendar app that does a better job of displaying events in month mode so looks like I'll start using that one instead. I've always liked the clean look of this app but the recent changes that I don't like and the continual addition of features that cost extra, some of which should absolutely be included in the base PAID app, are driving me away.

Love it!! Only 1 downfall
I absolutely love this app and have been using it for a very long time. I love the color coding and that I can look at the month and know what I have going on. It’s so convenient. My only complaint is I need to have times written on each block. For example, when I write “4pm Dr appt” it changes the time to 4pm but it takes that I wrote 4pm. I do not like that. I have to go back into the spot and change it again to say 4pm Dr appt. There has to be a way to change this. I do not like to have to click on each block to see the start time. It wasn’t always like this, it came after an update a few years ago and I really don’t like it. If I title a spot as “4pm dr appt” I want it to stay and say that. I hope this can get fixed. It’s inconvenient.

Great except one flaw
I love this app I’ve been using it for years, it’s the only calendar I’ve ever continued using. However, now they are pulling info from my email accounts and placing it on my calendar that isn’t accurate (and I CAN NOT delete it), is so frustrating. If you book and cancel something like a hotel or change a flight... the first canceled booking may end up on your calendar and from my experience I cannot figure out how to get it off. That feature would be nice if I had the option to delete it. The only other complaint would be that after the 4th event of the day you cannot see the rest unless you click on it and that can be misleading... maybe some kind of ... at the bottom would be nice to let the user know that there are more events scheduled for that day. Everything else I love! It’s super easy to create reoccurring events and move appts when necessary.

Top Calendar App
I have used this calendar for many many years. People constantly ask me what I use. The monthly view and the ability to arrange your schedule in such a clear manner are not equaled by any other app I’ve tried. Although some navigation steps have changed over the years, it is still outstanding. The company I work for does not have employee scheduling apps. We make our schedules months in advance. For me it’s a 1 minute activity to set up my calendar to submit a screen shot monthly schedule, others need to fill out calendars and then hoping it’s the same as on their own device. As I like to manage my time this app is a perfect fit. Probably my favorite of any app.

Much Better Calendar than Most
After trying 11 calenders, I finally found one that is almost perfect! iCalendar has absolutely everything I want in a calendar with only one exception (which is the only reason I didn't give this a 5 star rating)... it will not allow creating a task without giving it access to the user's Reminders app. I use my Reminders app extensively... for reminders, not tasks (which are two very different things in my book)... and would like the ability to create and view tasks in iCalendar without seeing my extremely large number of reminders there. Please add the ability to create tasks without the requirement to access and display reminders from the Reminders app and I will definitely update this rating and review.

Best all around Calendar for Mac users
I downloaded pretty much every calendar there is, and this one fits the bill. I use imac shared calendars extensively to instantly get updates on my families planned activities. I also have a work calendar that syncs via Exchange to this app. The thing I like about it is there is a month view where i can see all the events at once with the name of the event instead of just dots or icons. Better than the built in calendar for sure. Can do reminders and more. Thanks for making great product! Please keep developing it - it has been fairly stagnant for a couple of years now!!!

Great for keeping on schedule with college assignments
This saved me when I was trying to make sure I didn’t miss any assignments my last 2 years of college. I haven’t had to use this for a few years after that. But I need to used it today to make sure I did a couple tasks today. I forgot to put a time on them after I had already saved them but it kept glitching and taking me back to the previous screen. Also, I remember that this didn't sync at all with Google Calendar which would’ve saved me a lot of manual labor of having to enter my assignments from the syllabus. Other than that this is a solid app to use for reminders and settings tasks and color coding them for each class like I needed.

Better than Apple’s Calendar
This is my go-to calendar. I can see what is planned for the entire month. With Apple’s monthly calendar I can only see dots for a day with appointments, not the actual appointments themselves. If you have many days scheduled during the month, you don’t need to open each day to see your schedule with this calendar. This calendar not only works better, but is colorful and bright. Thank you, Developers. You have made a very well thought out calendar.

Calendar App Review
This app as a whole is great, however with it being this advanced, there are some kinks that need to be worked out. For example, when you are making/editing an event, you should expect to be able to change the location after it is found in the keep. However, once you open the maps through the app, it saves the title as the city and changes it's location when you look it up later. How horrible is it to constantly remake events.... Although this is one problem, every other experience in terms of adding all my calendars, etc. have been delightful.

Needs a few common sense improvements
When adding an event the event box/window jumps around when changing from writing the name of the event to all other options of planning the event. This is extremely annoying when you are in a hurry (not trying to admire the bounce around cool graphics of transitions). Also, it would be nice to view the last week of a month & the first week of the next month together (not be forced to only look at the weeks in one month at a time). These changes would be highly recommended to the developers. But other than that, it’s a pretty good calendar app. There’s probably better ones out there but good enough to use.

❤️ but 1 thing
I love love love this app and have been using it for YEARS! I love how seamlessly it syncs with my many google calendars. The one issue I have always had is when I add an all-day event from my iPhone, it shows as a two-day event. I always have to go to my google calendar on my laptop to change the date to only one day. A long time ago, I reached out to support and they had me try lots of things (turn off/on, delete app/reinstall, etc.) but nothing worked. It’s definitely a bug because it has happened through many years and many different phones. 🤷🏼‍♀️

Colorful and seamless
I order for my calendar to be efficient to me it needsto look a certain way, customized alerts, and work seamlessly across all my devices. I like the fact that even if I have a certain color to a specific calendar, I can still change an item’s color in that calendar, and tasks as well. And speaking of colors, they are not just basic. You can make your own blends with the color pallette. I would recommend this to anyone looking to spruce up their productivity and bring a bang of color into it.

I was excited to get iCalendar because of the customizable snooze function. When receiving a Calendar notification I have the option to snooze for minutes or hours. I find that very useful. But I found a major limitation. iCalendar does not run a background task on the iPhone. This means if you add an event to your calendar on Google from your computer it will not sync with iCalendar until you use your iPhone to actually view the calendar. So I would add events to my Google Calendar from my computer and not receive any notifications on my iPhone. Just having icalendar open but not displayed as the active app on my phone does not cause the calendars to sync If you schedule all of your calendar events using your iPhone then it should work fine, but if you're like me, working from the desktop all day and scheduling events from there, you won't get event notifications without opening the phone app to cause it to sync. I did exchange a few emails with Symfonie customer service. They were patient and helpful but acknowledged the limitations of the app.

Great until it wasn’t
I’ve been using this for our family calendar for years - we’ve all loved the ease of use, ability to copy and paste multiple times, but especially the custom color coding. I have four people’s schedules to coordinate and a business on top. Color coding everything was paramount. I had custom colors set for all the calendars. After this last update I’m locked into a list of preset colors for some reason. I can’t use my previous colors or even set favorite colors - it’s just a small palate and that’s it. I also can’t change from local calendar to google calendar once an appt is saved. This is particularly difficult since it added “local” calendar with the same name as my family calendar - I ended up putting several appts in under the local calendar. When I went in to change it to the correct google calendar, it would only show local calendars as options for me to switch it to. What was a great app needs serious work to get it back to great again.

Really annoyed
I used to LOVE this app!! I recommend it to soo many people!! Unfortunately the whole thing got scrambled after the last update! None of my temples were working so I had to create new ones. All the monthly and yearly events I had as repeats are all in the same color so my whole calendar is purple. I am really big on color coding so this really annoys me. I have to go in manually to change all the event colors one by one. It’s not time efficient. And when I use the “all day” button it marks it as 2 days on my calendar. I have tried for a while to adjust to this but idk how much longer I’m gonna be able to tolerate it. I want it to go back to when I loved it!!!

Used to LOVE This App!
I have used this calendar app for many years. It has always been a 5-star app! I use it on both my iPhone and iPad. Since one of the recent updates however, I can no longer edit the calendar events on my iPad, only on my iPhone. For instance, if I change a time on the event, it does not allow me to save the edit. This is something I’ve noticed over the past couple of months. I thought it was because I needed to update to iOS 16, which I did just recently. However, that has made no difference. Please fix this app!! I rely on this calendar to keep all of my daily things to do in order.

Overall all I love it except for a minor bug….
My favorite part is the month view with my text entries on each individual day rather than dots -like most other calendar apps have. The only issue I have had with it since day 1 (i’ve used it for 4 years) is if I enter a time in the form of text in the title od an event it never shoes up. I can ONLY get it to show up if I go back into the event and select “edit” and enter the time text AGAIN. Example: Dr visit at 1:00pm. I have to enter 1:00pm AGAIN.

I've been trying out different calendars trying to find the one that works perfect for me. This is it! This one checks all the boxes. Love it! Update: upon updating to the latest version, I’m not liking nearly as much. They took away the badge notification which was the reason I installed this app to begin with. I liked looking at a glance to see if I had appts for the day. I may be looking for another calendar now, one that will enable the badge notifications.

So far so good
I have only been using this app a couple days now but so far it's been great! It loaded in all my events from my calendar automatically which was great! I'm still trying to learn my way around it and how I best function with it, but it seems great! I love the colors, it's so helpful!! I will say I was not a fan of having to pay an additional $.99 just to be able to have tasks but so far I've really enjoyed those as well!

Best calendar out there
This is far and away the best calendar app on the market. The views are fantastic, I haven't encountered a bug in the past year of using it, and I have many calendars syncing with it constantly. My one issue is that with a recent update they made it one tap harder to switch to different views, which is something I am doing constantly. If there's an easier way to switch views with one tap please let me know.

All hype
I downloaded the app because I thought it would be better then the standard app. Well it some ways the standard app is better. Another drawback is that the app requires it’s users to spend money on things the standard calendar app does already for free. Only real unique feature is its ability to customize repeating events and being able to move them. Really wish they had a trial subscription and set of forcing you to pay 399 right off the bat. Had I been able to try it I would’ve never subscribed to the app

I had to look up an appointment scheduled for next year, and to my amazement, none of the calendars I have on my iPhone had a “search” option. I also depend on iOS reminders, but all the calendars I looked at in App Store had either/or and none had “search and reminders” together. I finally found iCalendar, downloaded, paid for the reminders option, and I am now a happy camper! Thank you!!

I calendar
I like it and use it for all kinds of reminders. I liked being able to press on the month view and a circle would come with functions. I miss not being able to do that but the calendar has many good features especially color coding. I like those also but I sometimes write something and it comes on another day. Maybe I do something wrong. I like how it cancels or edits something.

Love the app, frustrated by widget
I really love the app, almost everything about it! I've used it for years👍🏻 However, since I started using widgets on my lock screen, I am super disappointed that it doesn't work despite saying it is available👎🏻 Most of my apps are updated every 2 weeks even for the smallest fixes, but nothing to fix widgets from iCalendar? After 2 months, I'm really leaning towards searching for a new cal app...which is super unfortunate bc I truly love it, and don't want to have to reprogram my recurring calendar events🙁

Favorite app ever
I’ve been using this app for at least 6-7 years, I think it’s the best app purchase I’ve ever made. The monthly view is unmatched by any other calendar app I’ve tried. It runs smoothly and seamlessly, is easy and fast to use, and is exactly what I need in a calendar app. In all these years, I’ve never once seen the app have any downtime or significant bugs. Highly recommend!

Middling app except for one feature
iCalendar has got really cool 'visible range' filtering (i.e., display only those events that occur between a chosen start hour and a chosen end hour) but otherwise the app is middling. Pricing is good (no subscription!) but the pricepoint is high (unless you care for visible-range filtering, in which case the app is an excellent value)... Developers say in release notes 'we respond to every email we receive' but that's nonsense; I've sent numerous emails and have not ever heard back... Do you care for visible-range filtering? If so then you'll like iCalendar, if not then probably you won't.

Almost Perfect
I have been using iCalendar for several years now. I love the ability to customize event colors. I also love the flexibility and ease of use. There are 2 additions, I would love to see 1) being able to change the color of events/invites that are set by others people. This will make it so much easier to discern the different events. 2) having more theme options

Moving on...
I have loved this app for so long, color coding each family members schedule was a huge plus; however, with recent updates I am no longer able to add people to events that I create in my calendar. Being able to do that allowed me to share important things on the family calendar with my husband. I tried to reach out to support a couple of times and I appreciate their effort to try to fix it but it doesn’t seem like it’s fixable at this time.

iCalendar: 2 thumbs up
I have multiple calendar apps on my iPhone & iPad, but over the last 6+ months, I have defaulted to the iCalendar app. Easy to use, copy appts., create recurring appts., etc. I have pinned it to my home page so it's always available. With iCalendar, Evernote, Day One Journal and Wunderlist, at least for me, I feel that I have my schedule, info, activities and to do list covered.

It is Ok
It irritating that when you look at a specific day the calendar goes into a day format as default and does not go back to the monthly view after unless you click a few different buttons to get to it. You would think it would default back to your original setting. Also the app should show the date it is on your home screen without having to open the app.

Appt Times Don’t Match
Used this app for years and this has never worked for me. When I’m in the month view and tap on a appointment, the thumbnail opens and it shows me the information but the appointment times are always incorrect. When I open the appointment to edit the times it shows that they are correct. Asked for help and was told to uninstall and reinstall with no effect. Will still use but is frustrating.

Don’t Like
It’s changed - can’t set your own calendar color Also after putting in the info if changed, the color of the entry goes back to that horrible yellow color. Also what ever you put in the subject line it’s never complete when you go into full month view. You have to go back into the entry & enter the rest yet again then select the color yet again to keep it from the default color. Liked it much better before all the changes.

Not Bad At All
I like the simplicity of it, it's user friendly, and I can do a lot with it. I have purchased/used A LOT of calendars for my iPhone, and this one fits me. I wish however, that when it syncs with my google calendar it recognizes what is already there as opposed to creating a duplicate for every appt on every date. My appts also disappear in occasion, and I have to create a new event for everything to show back up again.

I will not get into the issues I’m having with this calendar because there are too many to name. It used to be much easier to use but since the latest update the ease of use is now very time consuming. I have no idea what happened but it takes me longer to fix the mistakes iCalendar makes than it does to create an event. I sincerely regret the update! Been using for years.
