Updating this thread with a quick mixed review of Woven. For context, I juggle a lot of calendars for work, a few for home, and I use Fantastical because it saves me enough time every month to justify the cost. Frustrations with Fantastical are a) the Watch complication not keeping up, b) no ability to add metadata (tags) to calendar events, c) no ability to save searches, d) no ability to quickly toggle calendars outside of calendar sets.
I really like the tags. You can add them to events pretty quickly, including to ones you were invited to, not just the ones you create. The same tag can be applied across multiple calendars.
I also like the analytics (how much time you’re spending in each kind of tag, an estimate of your focus time, and how much time you spend with each person.) However, I’m not sure if its maker schedule time estimates provide much more benefit than just eyeballing the weekly calendar view.
Keyboard shortcuts are also appreciated.
On the iPhone, Woven makes pretty good use of the bottom tab bar, so it feels more organized, and the performance seems more in line with my expectations. However, it’s not nearly easy enough to view different calendars here either as the app prioritizes things like viewing analytics, sending meeting time finders, and managing templates.
Woven doesn’t appear to have a watch app, or at least, I couldn’t get it to activate.
Woven also costs $120/year for premium and I’d rather pay $40/year.
I could certainly see Woven being someone’s favorite app, but I feel more confident that Fantastical is the current best tool for me, despite its limitations. I really hope that Fantastical catches up a bit with Woven’s best features, though.
