    Fantastical has powerfull functionality but it hasn`t same integrations with dozens of 3rd-party apps like Trello, Wunderlist, Gmail, Asana, Todoist, GTasks, etc, like Sunrise :(

      That's true. Fantastical does however have a bit of an API that you can use AppleScript to integrate with other apps. Of course you'd need some technical know-how to do those things.

      Todoist does actually integrate with Fantastical. I use both.

      For things like Trello and Gmail I believe apps like IFTTT allow you to automate those kind of processes.

        It's not even close to the same using IFTTT or AppleScript, and 99% of users won't know how to do that. With Sunrise it was as simple as logging into your services.

        I paid for and use Fantastical, but aside from a faster UI (slower syncing though) and natural language input, it really doesn't have any significant benefits over what Sunrise offered.
