*** 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 have an notification on every day saying “congratulations you have won iPhone”. The phone is brand new, so I doubt it’s a virus. Is something wrong with the app?
This app has a lot of great functionality for managing tasks and projects. The interface is super clean and efficient. The flow for bringing a task or project through inception to completion is very intuitive and works well. The only thing I would raise is the way the app assumes you are a go-getter who will knock out tasks in a proactive manner. For slackers, procrastinators, and anxiety sufferers like myself it is not very good at nagging and popping up. You have to actively pay attention to the stuff in the app. I would like to see a slider that lets you set the level of app awareness of your ability to complete tasks. So you can make it nag you more if you want it to. That way you can decide if the app is more proactive in bringing tasks in front of your eyes to make sure you don’t just set them and forget them. But I would still recommend this app all the way.
This app is one of the best out there and the design is so apple like but it is missing 2 very important features to me 1- Natural language parsing (eg tom=tomorrow) 2- Start-end time for tasks I’ll still continue using the app for its pricing and ease of use but these 2 features (esp 2) would bring it to a whole new level
I have issues with short-term memory, so I need help staying on track. I have tried so many apps, and Things is by far the best for me. It has been particularly helpful in the normal recurring tasks throughout my week, much better than relying on my calendar app. It is very easy to create a task and set it for a date in the future with a custom repeat. Having Things as a complication on my Watch helps me to actually do the stuff I agreed to do! I could not get my Apple Watch to work as described, so I asked for help. It turned out I was doing it wrong, but Mick and Julia in Support were very patient with me, explaining and reviewing how it worked until I got it. I have Things on both my iPad and iPhone, and have given it as a gift. I recommend it very highly.
For $10, I excepted more features than Apple’s Reminders app, not less. • no location awareness • no custom repeats (like, first weekend day of the month or last Friday) • no list of all to dos • excessive taps to remove new, empty to dos (why save a blank to do?!) The UI is pretty but the feature set stinks.
This is a really great app. It’s one of the only ones that let repeating tasks repeat from the day they’ve been completed vs a specific day of the week. It would be awesome if I could mark a task as completed on a day in the past. I use this as a reminder to take medications. Sometimes I forget to mark it as complete so it messes up the repeating task. Thank you!
The app is very easy to use and understand. No more paper lists to keep track of and updating. Connect personal family and life goals seamlessly with your career goals in order to easily organize and manage them all at your fingertips on your smartphone. Projects at work are easily accessible, so enjoy your weekend and relax fully knowing that you can reorient yourself to what needs to be done and when on Monday morning before you start your day. I needed a tool like this years ago, but better late than never.
Huge fans of Things. Use it across Mac, iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch. Normally 5 star. It’s a must-buy. But rating 2 stars because Watch App when on cellular without iPhone nearby will not consistently capture new tasks and sync them to cloud for other devices. Instead, it says “Saved to Inbox” and the task is lost forever. Tried rebooting app and watch, but it doesn’t matter. I love Things, but it has lost too many critical tasks from my Watch that I must rate the app poorly. I hope this gets fixed so I can change my score back to 5 stars. But data loss is simply unacceptable.
Like an idiot I purchased this app before being totally aware of its limitations. I think todoist is the best because it’s cross platform and has pretty much all the functionality you need. This app, isn’t cross platform, no attachment support on iOS, doesn’t have a web interface and is clunky. Also, the app is ugly.
This is the best to do list and organizer I have used. Cheap yet very functional. Go through the training to get a hang of all the functionality.
