*** 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?

  • Great but not perfect

    Generally structured around GTD, this app makes it easy and fun to organize your tasks. Its strongest quality is the design. It’s aesthetically easy to look and easy to use. Principally, I bought for the tags and that it doesn’t have a subscription to use. Coordination between projects is crucial for today’s task apps and it’s surprising this app still lacks it. This will make it almost impossible to use outside of personal organization.
  • watch app is useless

    what’s the point of having to physically interact with the watch to add a to-do, once for the voice (not so bad) but what’s infuriating is the necessary 2nd tap that allows u to add it to the ONLY VIEW/FOLDER ur able to see on ur watch face.. no other way to change folder besides the today view and if u add a new to-do, u have to tap for it to be added into today. otherwise it disappears into an inbox that u can never see from ur watch. that’s so backwards, fix this and i’ll fix my review. 2nd edit - even if u check off a task, there’s absolutely no way to undo that edit or check on ur finished tasks from ur watch, this apple watch app is more frustrating than it is useful. zero practical functionality
  • Great! One gripe

    Great! My only gripe is that I wish the app would display each task with all of the text instead of shortening it with ellipses. It forces me to tap on each tap to read the entire task description. Otherwise amazing app!
  • Affordable, but buggy.

    Sometimes lists don’t save and you lose all of that content in a task. Some reminder alerts don’t appear.
  • THE task app for anyone who’s got a lot to do

    I used ToDo on the iPhone with Toodledo on the web for years, and I was quite happy with it. However when I tried to update ToDo, as it was increasingly buggy, to ToDo Cloud, the install failed and I started looking around. And I am glad I did. I looked at many reviews and decided to give Things 3 a try. The tutorial is well done, and in 15 minutes I was fully up to speed. I then reentered about 100 tasks, although I could have imported them. I have to state that the interface is a joy to work with, and the final result was amazing. Read the reviews for product details, but this app defines what is great about iOS. Clean, intuitive and fun. The integration with the calendar, in particular, is brilliant. After getting it set up on the iPhone, I purchased the iPad app. Perfect integration and interface! My only quibbles... When I set an Inbox item to Today, and then I do not complete the task and clear the date, the task ends up in the Anytime folder. I think it should go back to the Inbox. This is by design, and I have a workaround, but it is mildly annoying. Also, I would like to not display the Anytime folder, as I do not need it, but this is not customizable. I could use the real estate for another area or project. But these are minor details. This is one of the best apps for iOS. Period.
  • Location-based notifications

    Things is one of the most useful and DELIGHTFUL apps I have on my devices. I have it on my phone, my iPad and my Mac - all synced up. All three devices are absolutely entrancing to use. Things SETS THE BAR for what an elegant and unobtrusive user experience should look like cross-platform.
