tassiecelt, Things and Fantastical are a good combo for me too. I use Things for initial task entry because it is so fast to create new items. And I found I can drag an item into Fantastical 2, if I want to assign it to a date. It's faster than creating something originally in Fantastical, and lets me use Things for classifying tasks as to where they can be done and area of responsibility or project. So I get a time-based look in F and differently organized views in T.
