*** 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?

  • Quality through and through

    By firewinkle
    With so many apps in the same space, you’ve got to stand out in some way. This does a great job balancing straightforward tasks, customization, usability, and aesthetics. Then you get bonuses like Siri integration and recently email to-dos. Of all the to-do apps I’ve used, this has been the most enjoyable and more importantly, has actually helped me be organized and get things done better. (And I’ve kept with it!)

  • Very good

    By Steve Sharo
    Only complaint is things 3 does not follow the larger text size in iOS.
  • It helps clear up my mental ram so that I can focus on things that matters

    By YaleNinja
    It keeps track of different areas of my life when I am balancing two degree problems, job app, dating, friends, hobbies. I get to organize all the todos. Can afford to focus on the present without worrying that I am losing sight of what matters.
  • This app changed my life.

    By Typodontist
    I’ve used at least 5 other to do list apps, and they always ended up being unused lists of stuff I should do. Things 3 works with my brain, and since I started using it in May 2017 I have been unbelievably more productive. It is simple, easy to use, clean. I can easily mail myself a to do on any other date. Finally, a system I can trust and unload my brain into.
  • Not worth the money for iPhone only

    By things3_iphoneuser
    The app is maybe worth it if you buy all apps (iPhone, Mac, iPad). For iphone only, there are better free apps around that do much more. Not planning to buy the iPad nor Mac version, since I don’t have them, which makes this a standalone app that I can only use when in the phone (cannot access via a web browser or anyway else). Either way, appears to work great when multiple devices are connected to it. For iPhone only, there are better options.
  • Things 3 is the best app of all time.

    By JOhnny de271i6873682398w
    It keeps me in order. I am better at what I do because of this app. I have a very busy life and this brings the anxiety down. I always look for better solutions, and haven’t found a better app to do what things is doing.
  • Location

    By An educated listener
    Please implement location based reminders (geo fence) and photo/txt file attachment. Things’ design is superbly streamlined much more so than the competitors. Intuitive and smart.
  • Best overall todo and project app
