Is Fantastical Google Calendar only or does it support Exchange?

It plugs into the Apple Calendar API. If you've got your Apple Calendar setup to work with Exchange, I'd assume it'd work.

The desktop version gives you a choice of using either iCal or Entourage.

I went ahead and bought the iOS version. It's a nice app and makes using the calendar on iOS much easier.

The desktop version is still garbage though.

How does the new version of Fantastical stack up against Tempo?

I'll disagree with that. The OS X version lives in the toolbar and makes it so much more convenient to access the calendar *and* reminders (now a separate app in ML and later) than opening the full calendar app. The OS X version is meant to be a supplement to a full calendar app whether it be stock iCal or BusyCal, etc.

I'll say it Tempo doesn't compare since it "requires" a social network or email login in order to use that app. That's a big fail in my book.

That alone is worth your purchase. I'm still shocked they included it after my email. It was the only thing I need to justify the app cost.
Agreed: Developer support with Fantastical has been amazing. I emailed them a minor feature request -- they responded saying it's on their list of things to possibly do, but (understandably) a low priority, so "no promises".

Eight days later, on New Year's Eve, they emailed me again to say the feature had been added.

So far after a few day's of being in "Fantastical" Land, I'm liking it. MUCH better than the stock iOS calendar and MUCH better than that bag of vaporware, Tempo.
