*** 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: thingsapp.com WHAT’S NEW?

    I’m a developer and I’ve used LOTS of “to-do” systems over the years. This one gets my “Best of Show!” Simple interface, yet extremely powerful. Can’t wait to try the new Things 3.
  • Not functional enough to be purchased

    Unfortunately I jumped into using Things without trying the free desktop version first. After spending time setting up my task management system and entering tasks I realized I was unable to check a repeating item as complete prior to the date the repeat was set as. For instance I wanted to complete the repeating items that were to come due during a two week vacation in advance so that I wouldn’t have to worry about them while on vacation but Things does not allow this to be done. I checked in with technical support and they stated they hoped to someday provide functionality for checking off repeating events prior to the day they are set to repeat on but at this time it is not possible. I paid $50 for the desktop and $10 for the app and all I can say is this program isn’t worth using and is not ready for release even though it’s been out for years. SMH.
  • The "Gold Standard" for Task Management

    Are you freaking kidding me?? This App KEEPS getting better and better!! The latest 3.5 update REALLY puts the "gold plating" on! Collapsable AREAS, search in the tagging dialog, filter on "no tag", full completion dates in LogBook are MOST welcomed by me in the release! Previous to this release, the mailing into Things "feature add" was tops on my list because being able to email into Things from my Windows workstation has been INVALUABLE to quickly getting things out of my head and into a reliable system for tracking and planning. Because the App is such a joy to use on both my iPhone & iPad Pro, I now find myself using it ALL THE TIME! Thank you Cultured Code for a beautiful and amazingly functional app that is WELL WORTH the $$ for both the iPad & iPhone versions!
  • Good but missing few options

    1. I really miss the option to have a sound / chime when a task is marked completed like Wunderlist 2. Miss the smart text input that understands words like tomorrow or next Thursday. Todoist and Remember The Milk do this well 3. Ability to have a shared project for collaboration. Wunderlist does this well 4. Ability to add attachments 5. Location based notifications
  • It’s the best out there.

    I’ve tried practically every other app like this out there and this is by far the best. It’s simple yet elegant and as easy as it can be to get information in and out and to reorganize. I’ve tried to use others because I also use Android PCs but I just get frustrated by how complicated they are and how long it takes to do what Things does so easily. Updates and Improvement are constant and really thoughtful.

    Been a Things user since way back in the mists of time; Things 3 brings clarity and freshness back to how clear Things felt at 1.0 (when iOS was heavy and my list of Things was still small). Well done! Honest: just yesterday, I wrote a review asking for collapsible Areas, and today they roll out the feature. Talk about responsive developers! (Obviously, kidding; I’m sure that took a lot of thought and work: thank you!) The implementation of hiding Areas is great; the modification to the icon in collapsed state, and the animation in and out of it, are perfect. (I do wish on Mac I could option-open or option-close to open or close all.) I’d love to also see headings in Areas, and Undo everywhere. Maybe support for Shake to Undo? I'm not a huge fan of shaking my phone around in the air like a lunatic, so I suppose the method is less important than the result, but some universal method for Undo is really needed; I’ve had a few errant taps that deleted or moved something I didn’t mean to, and the time to try to remember what that was and fix it is just lost time. Please? Undo? Overall, excellent app, refinements just keep making it better. Yay!

    the animations make it slow. on adding task for today it does some stupid animation that takes a second and it slows me down when I’m trying to be productive and just enter data very fast
  • Before You Purchase...

    Be aware!!! If You want this app across your devices, you will have to pay separately for each device: $9.99 for the iPhone, $19.99 for the iPad, and $49.99 for the Mac. I wish I knew this before purchasing the iPhone version. I’m not plunking down $80 just so I can sync this app across my devices. So, I won’t be using this app. Too bad. It seemed like a useful app.
