    Is there a calendar that integrates with the iOS reminders app?

    I've tried all the to do apps and darn if to me the Reminders app isn't just as good as any foe to do lists. Some have all the label stuff but reminders just works and is easy to set time or location reminders. But I'd love to see them in my calendar too. I can see Wunderlist and Todoist in my calendar by subscribing but no reminders. You'd think it would with the iOS calendar but I don't see how.

    I use Fantastical 2 on my iPhone. It integrates reminders and has lots of other benefits as well.

    Ok thanks. I'll look at Fantstical.

    You would think the stock iOS calendar and Reminders would work together.

    Another good choice is BusyCal.

    I would say pocketinformant but the price for the app is $24 dollars (a year for sync services). I am debating on whether it is worth it or not.

    You should definitely check out Readdle's Calendars (I believe it's free) and Calendars 5 (payed version).

    Another for fantastical - does exactly what you want, natural language is brilliant too.

    I've done some playing around with fantastical since this thread and it does Reminders but I just don't like the layout. It only has basically 1 layout and view. Not much to pick from.

    There's also a week view - you need to rotate your phone.

    Yeah I saw that. I just don't prefer to rotate.

    Checking out Busycal. Looks very cool.

    Like how they have a to do section and it's easily accessible on the bottom of the screen and it is fully 2 way syncable with Reminders.

    Update on Busycal

    Liking it. But a couple things and as remember I was looking for an app that integrates and synced with reminders app.

    When you set a todo/reminder it syncs great almost instantly back and forth. One thing that is annoying is that if you set a time for your to do, it books it as an hour on your calendar. There is no option that I've found to change the duration of a timed to do.

    There is also no 3D Touch actions so you can hard touch the app icon and add an event etc.
