Things overview

Things is a task management solution that helps to organize your tasks in an elegant and intuitive way. Things combines powerful features with simplicity through the use of tags and its intelligent filter bar.

Features:
  • Collect Your Thoughts - Get things off your mind quickly: no matter what app you’re in, a keyboard shortcut instantly reveals Quick Entry. Type your thoughts and save them to the Inbox. Or just talk to Siri on any device ("Remind me to...") and import from Reminders.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

What’s new in version 3.20

  • Added several text-editing items to the Edit menu: Substitutions, Transformations, and Speech.
  • Added Quick Entry with Autofill support for the NetNewsWire app (RSS reader).
  • Made date detection diacritic-insensitive to avoid conversion to bullets when the date is at the start of a line.
  • Fixed a bug that could prevent the "Back to Today" button from showing in date pickers.
  • Fixed several issues when dragging content on a secondary display.
  • Fixed some graphical glitches when dragging checklist items in an expanded to-do.
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when interacting with the legacy Today Widget.
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when launching Things on macOS 10.13 High Sierra.
  • Many other internal improvements.

From what I understand, they changed the database format once again in v3.13.1 without any option to import your former database! :-o At least, when they switched from v2 to v3 there has been this feature. I've searched every possible support page, no way! You can import from a number of other software but not their own! Am I missing something?

Although the price is stiff, it looks like it'll help me to organize my day a lot. For now, I am satisfied with its work, the interface might be better, but it is not a selling point for me.

Mac-only app in this day and age of interoperability? How's that business model work out for you when Android is over 50% of the phone market. Hard pass.

Things 3 is now pretty much perfect. It is worth every cent/penny. A great way to view the potential of Things 3 for organising your life and for productivity is to jump onto YouTube and watch some examples of how people use Things 3 in their own lives. You can keep it simple or can go 'deep'. I like the fact that the developers keep it up-to-date but only release 'major' updates every few years so as not to throw users off their day-to-day productivity with new features and shortcuts to learn. The matching iOS apps are superb too.
