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 3.15.16

Updated on Apr 20 2022

  • Enhanced the Add to Things share extension (e.g. in Safari): it can now grab a webpage’s title and text selection.
  • Improved performance when duplicating to-dos and projects.
  • Improved pasteboard content clean-up when pasting into lists.
  • Fixed a bug where back-arrow navigation could fail after entering a project via Return/Enter.
  • Fixed a bug where, in a rare circumstance, an orphaned heading could be created as a result of a sync merge.
  • Fixed a bug where default tags could get out of sync.
  • Fixed a crash that could occur if Things tried to sync while a repeating to-do was being configured.
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when copying or dragging a to-do with no title.
  • Fixed a crash that occurred in the popover management system.
  • Various internal model 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.

Its UX and UI is good, but $49.99 for this? No thanks. WorkFlowy, Dynalist, and Checkvist are all far more versatile and powerful.

I really don't get the enthusiasm for Things 3 in the comments below... It's a nice Todo list, that's all — ok, I'm not a power user and I don't need mobile sync. ;-) The Tags button has gone away, the sidebar distinction between projects and areas too, except for their icon. Things 1 and 2 were a bit clearer, I think, but Things (any version) lacks colours! Nothing beats the old Finder style underlining colours for making an item jump to your eye, whatever its position in the list. One nice feature is the dark mode, though. But for the price, I'd expect a lot more options (colours; may be varying colours from green to red when the due date becomes nearer, etc.) I haven't found a much better alternative and I think, all in all, that there's not a lot of imagination deployed in the Todos business... ;-)

For years I have tried to use something simple that allows me to organize my life. I tried omnifocus (way too complicated) , todoist (just ok), and things. Things is dependable, intuitive and simple—like all my best tools.

I have never really felt that I was able to organize my life as much as I can now that I use Things. Working 40+ hours a week and being a full time student means that my schedule is always busy. I used to put everything on my calendar but that just wasn't working as it made my calendar very cluttered and using that method didn't allow me to have access to any organizational features. Things has a beautiful and elegant user interface that I enjoy using. Its soft on the eyes and the animations throughout the app actually make you feel good completing your things that you have listed. I can't recommend this app enough and you won't regret using it.

I can only leave Things a three as it is not cross platform *(Android) and unlike Ticktick is not anywhere nearly as intuitive. I love the clean fresh look but that's as far as it goes.

Hi everybody! Not so much a comment or review, but a question. I'm thinking of buying Things 3 because of the simple and beautiful design. However, as a GTD fan I'm missing out on one basic feature: delegation (i.e. the "waiting for" status in GTD speak). How does one use Things in order to assign a to-do to someone else, or give it a delegated status until a certain condition is met (when there aren't any contacts involved)?

People need to get over the upgrade policy issue and move on. Yes it galled me when I had to invest (note I use the word 'invest') more $$ but believe me, it was/is worth it. Truly. The experience is so much better. Things 3 is miles better and useful than Things 2.

Additionally, I have experienced excellent technical support with (understandably) a few bugs in the earlier versions of Things 3 e.g. 3.0.1. What does one expect with a completely new version? The key is how Cultured Code dealt with these issues and communicated with their customer base. So far, they have been excellent. I have had the same customer service person liaise with me keeping me informed of bug fixes and workarounds which was very reassuring.

Both the Mac OS and iOS versions perform brilliantly now. Well done Cultured Code. I highly recommend you trial this todo/getting things done/productivity platform. Then make your decision to purchase or not.

For me, Things 3 is a major step from version 2. The clear interface and date/time reminders alone convinced me -- but there is more, and the very fast sync between Mac and mobile was already outstanding before. Therefore, I came back from 2do which I also liked a lot. This is very well made software, and considering that cultured code charges for new versions only every few years (maybe 5 or so), I believe the price for all versions to be more than fair. For me, Things 3 is the best combination of intuitive interface and power "under the hood".

Warning - when you "Import" reminders from the native Apple Reminders app, Things removes these reminders from all your connected iCloud devices. There seems to be no way to get them back. This is really not right, and I've given up using Things because of this.

An update from my previous comment. After using Things 3 for the past few days. I do believe I am more productive. I believed in my previous comment I jumped to conclusion before thoroughly using the application and not giving it a true test. At the moment I am using Things 3 as my primary to do list/manager and each day I learn more about the Things on macOS & iOS and like it better. I absolutely love the importing of reminders using Siri, I forget most everything unless I write it down and dictating to Siri is very helpful. ** Thus far, I am very pleased with my purchases of all 3 versions and look forward to see how Cultured Code implements improved functionality in the future **

Excellent update from V2 to V3 and about time too! Some much needed improvements to the look, feel and functionality. I won't bother listing all the brand new features but just to say go a check them out. It is worth the money (inc 20% discount) upgrading MacOS and iOS to be more productive and organised with V3. As for some of the comments listed here, it would appear some people know the price of everything and the value of nothing. ;-)

no upgrade policy for loyal long-term customs who stuck by them when for years they had no cloud syncing and it was delayed and delayed. 20% discount for everyone??? Nearly $AU70 for the update then I'm supposed to update my iOS version for another $12.99 No thanks

Downloaded demo and don't find new flat design super appealing Things window get's lost between all the other flat stuff so will be sticking with old version
