    Hey,

    after I waited a long time for Tempo (calenader app) and it was a flop I tried out "Fantastical" ... I heard a lot of good things and I use it on my Mac and it's great, but on my iPhone it doesn't work as expected.

    Normally I get 15 minutes before every appointment a reminder with a banner from the iOS calender app. I set that up for Fantastical, but it doesn't work. Nothing shows up, nothing vibrates or rings.

    Anybody else who has the same issue and found a solution for that?

    Btw. the notification settings in the "Settings" of iOS are set up :)

    Thanks
    Jaypi

    This is more a limitation of iOS rather than the calendar apps that display notifications. I also use Fantastical as my primary. I have tried several configurations in setting but have not been able to get the notifications from Fantastical to show properly.

    The only calendar app I have used in the past that "semi" works is Agenda calendar.

    I was able to deactivate the iOS calender notifications and the tempo notifications are working perfect, there are just not notifications for Fantastical ..

    That shouldn't be an iOS issue.

    You may want to shoot them an email. I suspect they will refer you to the FAQ though. The FAQ doesn't address why the app does not trigger their own notifications. Like I said, the only App I have used that sucessfully triggered their own notifications is Agenda and their faq's addresses duplicate notifications from happening.

    Thanks I sent them an e-mail because that is not true.

    "tempo" found a way because I got push notifications for every appointment in my calender :)

    I will let you know when I know more.

    That's the answer:

    Cool. Thanks for sharing. I knew it was an iOS limitation. The Dev for Pocket Informant had a similar situation when the current date badge would not update unless the app was reopened. A similar method to what was described above is used to make sure the badge updates automatically.

    Add Calvetica to the list that can show notifications without seeing the default iOS calendar notifications.
