    Since installing macOS Sierra beta 2 (Public) I have been experiencing extremely slow start ups on my Mac and the I believe the issue stems from Fantastical 2 starting when I boot up. Once I force quit Fantastical 2 all seems to run fine (In safari this takes and additional 10 - 20 minutes for some reason). However when I try to boot up any of my other calendar apps (Desktop Informant, Apple's Calendar app, and even Outlook) everything comes to a grinding halt again. Calendar apps are just not working on macOS Sierra, at least for me. Have no idea why this is happening. Reported the incidents to the macOS Sierra team via feedback app, and also to the makers of Desktop Informant and Fantastical 2. Luckily the iOS versions are working fine, but I do rely on my calendars a lot.

    Hey Scott. As the developer of Informant, I'd like to see if perhaps I can help. My guess here is that the problem is with the API called "EventKit" which all of our apps would use to access the native Apple Calendar data.

    1. Open the Console app when you open any one of the calendar apps do you see any interesting/obvious entries?
    2. Have you tried removing all your calendar sync accounts and then adding them back? Sometimes in the System Preferences panel you can go through and disable (uncheck) the calendar accounts for iCloud, Google, and others that you may have. Wait a few minutes and then add them back.
    3. What kind of accounts do you sync with? (iCloud, Exchange, Google, are common ones). Perhaps Sierra has an issue with a specific type of account.

    Anyhow that's a good place to start.

    Since the release of the macSierra public beta 3, calendar apps are working well again, but thanks for the suggestion! BTW, Desktop Informant is WONDERFUL!
