*** 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?

  • Very user friendly

    By Jose S Gomez
    I create to do lists every day and I Change them as needed, add notes etc. This app makes it simple. Would recommend!
  • Software as well designed as Things makes me more excited about being a software engineer

    Enough said :)
  • You Should Buy 2Do, not this

    By Snuffy29
    Everyone who gave this 5 stars must be paid by Cultured Code. This app is not good at all. Very basic and isn’t even worth my time. You are all getting ripped off, especially if you bought it for iPhone, iPad, and Mac ($75). I saw some positive reviews on the web before I purchased the app and I am now questioning the validity of those websites. Complete and utter waste of money.
  • Great

    By Official_NASCAR
    I just got the app yesterday and have already been very impressed by its many features. I think it is worth the $10. However I am only giving it four stars because the app requires you to purchase it on IPad and Mac separately which suddenly makes it quite an expensive tool.
  • Life changing

    By Sky633
    By far my favorite app for productivity. The only thing I wish it has was shared lists backed up by the cloud. It would be nice for a team project to work through things together on separate devices and have certain items update automatically. Super satisfied though!

    I think I went into this hoping that I would be disappointed, because I use so many different apps. But then I went into the app to find out but I can literally put all those apps in one place and it sync effortlessly. Don’t look any further. This is the app you want for personal and for business
  • 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.
