*** 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?

  • So useful for my life

    As a medical student, I have so many things I need to organize in my life. This app does it all and has helped me not to forget and stay more organized in life. If there is one app you should have in your life to benefit yourself and others, it is this one!

    I love this app. I use it to dump all my tasks and follow up items for both work and home. Hitting the checkbox and watching items get moved to “completed” is very satisfying.

    I know things3 has another version for both iPad and Mac but it surely is the best to-do app.
  • It’s good, wish it had daily notifications

    This app is great so far, I have used it for about a week or so. I like the different types of lists and checking them off when done. Everything has worked smoothly, no issues. I wish that every morning a notification would pop up and say “hey you have 3 things added to your to do list today” or something, to help push me in the right direction. What can I say, I am trying to head in the right direction and make changes, but old habits (like, not checking a daily to do list) die hard! This, for me, would make this app a can’t live without!
  • CRASHES ON STARTUP

    Crashes when opening, every time I open it for the first time each day.. Always need to open it a second time to use it. Unacceptably — especially for a paid app.
  • Great app but need a Microsoft companion application

    I'm giving Things 4.5 stars out of 5. I have both Mac and Microsoft computer for work. It sure would be nice to have either an online version and a Microsoft PC version. Otherwise, it a good application for the Apple ecosyste.
  • Good, but not very impressed

    It’s a good task manager but the below 2 downsides make I should barley use it 1) it take too long for the app to fire up compared to other apps 2) the lack of natural language, I’m always ending up using Fantestical although it’s more of a calendar that a task management because of the fluent natuol language

  • My Favorite App Purchase Thus Far*

    Hello, I just wanted to pass along some feedback, which I will gladly pass along to the App Store in a review, but this app is near the most perfectly designed/coded piece of software I have ever seen from a 3rd party developer. Wow! I was originally a Things 1.0 guy, and eventually fell back into  Notes and Reminders, however one of my dear friends told me that he has been using Things for macOS and that it was a fantastic experience, of which I can absolutely endorse as correct. I immediately purchased Things on iOS and macOS as it is absolutely changing my digital workflow from 2019 onwards. Cheers to New Year, New You, mix it up, buy an app and just jump right in, and Things is definitely a safe app to do that with, even with the upfront cost. P.S. Do you guys have any stickers or t-shirts with a logo on them? (Favorite app purchased thus far, tied with FiLMiC Pro)*
  • I want to like it more ~ but...

    I like parts of Things but really hate other parts. I don’t like the way it handles repeated items at all. That is pretty messy and really really confusing. Plus, you can’t complete a repeated item until it’s due. I don’t bother putting any repeat items in Things I dislike the repeat functionality so very much. As far as a simple list/todo it works, kinda fine, but feels cluttered, and makes you open and close things to find something. It really doesn’t make my life any easier or less complicated because the Things app is complicated enough for both of us. Things on the watch is nice, and syncs between the iphone really fast between my IPhone X and watch 4. The complications are also pretty nice. The watch only shows whatever is up for “Today”. Today and tomorrow would be better, or even add your in box. Nothing scheduled before today is visible on the watch. Useless. The other 2 things I don’t like about Things is you can punch, tap, click, deep press on an item to edit it until you are blue in the face before you hit it just right & the keyboard pops up so you can edit it. While messing around with that idiocy you can often hit the check box with one tap completing an item. Luckily it wanders over to the log book where it takes 2-3 taps to put it back in today. Brilliant. All in all I have tried over and over to like this, but it doesn’t do anything better, and other apps do everything Things does much better, cleaner and more efficiently
