*** 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?

This app is everything I'd hoped for from a productivity suite standpoint.
I have tried a bunch of To Do apps, but this one is absolutely different! I use it as my daily routine schedule, reminder, notebook, even keep tracking of projects, and list of everything I have. All in all, it's easy to use and have lots of necessary options, besides the UI and UX are outstanding with an awesome minimal design. 💡Here I have new ideas for developers: • Sort Today tasks by their reminder's time • Add a habit option to keep track of reputation and export the report. [I recommend to design a new app for that 😉]
I purchased and used the original Things, Things 2, and now Things 3. I jumped ship after Things 2 and tried a variety of other systems, including Evernote, Trello, Reminders, Asana, ToDoist—I think I’ve at least downloaded and poked around in every productivity app known to Apple. I invested heavily in OmniFocus 3 across platforms, and was using it for the past year. OmniFocus is powerful, but ultimately it is too distracting and overwhelming for my needs. Even with all of my projects and lists, I always felt like I was missing something. If I didn’t consistently tag things every time, they’d get lost. What is the point of a productivity system that causes more stress? For some users, OmniFocus’ robust features are great but it was too much for me. Things 3 is just easier to use in every way and the Omni features it is missing are not features I need. The only complaint I have is the price. In this day and age, $80 for this software across Mac, iPad, and iPhone, for what it does, feels ridiculous. It’s great, but it is only a few notches better in functionality than using Apple Reminders and Notes. That said, those features they do provide that Reminders doesn’t were enough to get me to buy. And it’s not a subscription model (THANK YOU THANK YOU) and at this point, I’ll pay extra just to support any developer who isn’t using a subscription based model. If you can afford it, buy it and support Cultured Code. Let Things 3 declutter your mind and put you at ease.
I recently switched to Things when app-maker Appigo forced its Todo users into a subscription-based ‘update’. I very much like the look and functionality of Things, but by far my most-used feature is setting up recurring events, and Things is FAR more unwieldy than Todo used to be. I say “used to be” because Todo stripped that feature from the non-subscription ‘update’, a huge reason why I switched to Things. Anyway, what was a very useful and easy-to-use feature in Todo now takes many more key presses in Things. Please take a cue and streamline that feature... Also, it would be helpful to be able to back-date tasks.
These developers turned “gorgeous” into a business model. That’s all it is: the worlds most gorgeous, most simple, and most functional todo app. This app—the way it looks, feels, and functions—is just... so much darn fun to use. It’s that good looking. Some days, when I’m feeling down, I open this app, and just collapse, then expand a to-do, over and over again—sometimes even for hours at a time. Lol. (But seriously, I do. It’s that good.). THE DETAILS!!: holy cannoli. They’re so yummy I think Apple should force all app developers who want to publish an app in the store to intern with these guys. Just get it.
Love using Things! It’s beautiful and functional. I especially like the option to create headings within projects. It would be great to have the option to creat headings within areas as well. Just a thought!
This app is off-the-charts fantastic! It’s the TESLA of apps, ‘nough said. Would love a “nagging alarm” feature to satisfy my OCD & ADD. Thanks!
I wish I would have had this app year ago!!! I use this more than any other app on my phone
I really want to love this app. Intuitive and clean. The only thing I wish it had was the ability to have attachments embedded within the task. Truthfully it’s the only reason I still use a competing app. But I keep downloading and hoping. Other than that, I dig it a lot.
