*** APPLE DESIGN AWARD WINNER 2017 *** Meet the all-new Things! A complete rethinking of the original, award-winning task manager – with a perfect balance between simplicity and power, incredible new features, delightful interactions, and a timeless new design. HERE'S HOW THINGS WORKS If you're new to Things, this is the basic workflow: 1. Collect Your Thoughts Get things off your mind quickly with Things’ action extension – it lets you create to-dos from other apps. Or just talk to Siri on any device (“Remind me to...”) and import from Reminders. 2. Get Organized Create a project for each of your goals, then add the steps to reach them. For clarity, add structure with headings. Then group your projects by areas of responsibility, such as “Family”, “Work”, or “Health”. Review these regularly to stay on top of things. 3. Plan Your Time See your calendar events alongside your to-dos and plan your time effectively. Create repeating to-dos for things you do every few days, weeks, or months – Things will remind you on the right day. 4. Make the Most of Your Day Every morning, grab a coffee and prepare your list for “Today”: review previously planned to-dos and make quick decisions on what to tackle. Pick some more steps from your projects and then get going. The Today list is the only place you’ll need to look for the rest of the day. 5. Customize Your Workflow Use tags to categorize your to-dos or add context. For example, tag places like “Office” or “Home”, or tag all your “Errands”, or everything you’re working on with “Kate”. You can easily find everything you’ve tagged via filtering or search. HERE'S WHY WE THINK YOU'LL LOVE THINGS 1. It stays out of your way. As you start using Things, you’ll quickly notice how seamlessly all the features fit together to give you an uncluttered, focused experience. There are no unnecessary frills. No pointless gimmicks or useless controls. In fact, you’ll hardly notice the app – it’s just you and your to-dos. 2. Everything revolves around your to-dos. In Things, each of your to-dos are special. In a list, they simply show a checkbox and the title of your to-do. But when you open them, they extend into a beautiful white piece of paper that’s ready to hold your thoughts. Additional details (checklists, tags, reminders, deadline) are nicely tucked away in the corner until you need them. 3. It’s got a touch of magic. Things removes friction in magical ways. Take the new Magic Plus Button that lets you insert to-dos at any place in a list – simply via drag and drop. Or the ease at which you can multi-select and operate on many to-dos at once. Or the natural language date parser: just type “tomorrow”, “in 4 days", or “next Wednesday", and it will jump to all the right conclusions. 4. It’s got all the power of iOS. Things is fully integrated with all the latest iOS technologies: Apple Watch, Calendars, Siri & Reminders, Today Widget, Quick Actions, Action Extension, Handoff, and Notifications. 5. And much more... Everyone's got their favorite feature, it's impossible to list them all. See what our users love about Things – visit our website at: WHAT’S NEW? This is a truly incredible update, with dozens of powerful new features. See the “What’s New” section below for a full list.

  • Perfect balance; better than OmniFocus

    By Mac The Apple
    Wanted something less complicated than OmniFocus to do simpler to-do tasks. Everything in OmniFocus feels like you’re planning a moon landing and it’s easy to get overwhelmed. I don’t have this issue with Things. It gives me just enough to get things (funny) off my mind, get them organized, and the calendar and reminder views are awesome. Could easily see Things replacing OmniFocus, even with OF 3 coming out. I’d like to see themes and to be able to tap the days/weeks/months to see them more in the upcoming section Awesome app!
  • Close to perfect

    By what what 82
    I have used in just about every task manager on iOS/Mac and am a bit of a connoisseur. This the first time I’ve seen one nail perfect amount of simplicity and power. Remarkably stable and well functioning, only updates I’d want are improving implementation of some things-such as how tags are done. For instance, I can’t tag multiple items at once and improvements to nesting. So far this my favorite task manager I’ve seen.
  • Not good for mixed environments

    By therookster
    I use an iPhone and a PC in combination. I thought this would be OK, but as I started using Things3 I found the restriction of working only on my phone added too much friction to my lists and I stopped using it. I also found Things3 to be sluggish when loading new data sets, like Upcoming or sub-lists. This also added friction that would be better eliminated. That said, I really like the design of the product, and if I only used Mac products I would gladly have purchased it for all environments and been very satisfied. If “all Mac” describes your technology, I highly recommend it. Otherwise, I would advise using a different “to do” program that allows use on all of your devices not just your phone.
  • iPhone version lacking features from Mac Version

    By the Real KiltedGnome
    I am a longtime Todoist user, however, I didn’t want to renew my annual subscription, so I bought Things3 after reading several online articles. After spending a couple hours setting up all my projects (about 60 were tracked in Todoist), I found out that the most basic feature is missing - the ability to attach files/images. I am used to attaching pictures, pdf’s, barcodes, emails etc. into my Projects. This is very disappointing as I had really looked forward to using Things3 as my replacement to Todoist’s subscription. If this ability existed, this would be a 5-Star rating without hesitation.
  • Works perfectly with GTD

    By pcloirk
    I did lots of research on apps that work with the GTD system and this was the best one by far. The setup is easy and the online help is great. I also like that I can sync my IPad and IPhone.
  • No Google Calendar

    No way to sync Google Calendar to this app. Only syncs to Apple Calendar, which I don’t use due to its poor layout. Not willing to rewrite all my events (written months in advance) twice just to use this app (including future events). Was really hoping for an app to streamline my calendar events with my tasks & now it is virtually useless. Wish I could return.
  • Great app

    By D_H_T
    This is a great app. Helps keep me organized. Beautiful design. However, I bought this thinking it would transfer to my iPad, but it costs double. Even more for Mac.
  • Just one request

    By PTMBL
    So far this seems great. I just have one request: please change the logo, its very ugly.
  • Best to-do app I've used

    By aviperum
    This is probably the most expensive iOS app I've purchased but it is worth the price given its value. Beautiful iOS design and surprisingly robust functionality. Enough for most people.
  • Need to buy it 3 times!?

    By Terra Surfer there’s Things 3 for your iPhone, $9.99. Then, if you want it for your iPad you’ll have to buy the “optimized for iPad” version $19.99......and THEN if you want it on your Mac ..... you’ll have to cough up $49.99. REALLY? $79.97? Three cents shy of $80 — please! Not worth it. I used Things 2 for well....however, I might just keep using Things 2 or switch to another app, perhaps back to just the native reminders / calendar. Caveat Emptor!
