Elegant personal task management.

What is Things for Mac

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 Things

Version 3.13.9:
  • Added support for creating a new tag from the Tags popover (hit Cmd+Shift+T on a selected task, then type your new tag).
  • Added support for opening a new window by Cmd+clicking a project or area heading when Today is grouped (enable grouping in Things > Preferences > General).
  • Decreased the font size in macOS Big Sur widgets.
  • Improved the reliability of the Things Cloud connection.
  • Fixed a bug that used the wrong date format for start dates that were 6 days ahead.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause checklist or tag content to be invisible after editing a to-do.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause the wrong options to be pre-selected when completing a project or project heading that contained incomplete to-dos.
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when creating to-dos inside a Repeating Project.
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when deleting items in the sidebar.
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when deleting tags.
  • Fixed some memory issues.
Things for big sur
  • We’ve provided full compatibility for macOS 11 Big Sur and two great improvements for the new unified Notification Center: configurable Widgets and Rich Notifications.
All-new widgets
  • Things’ powerful new Widgets are now available on the Mac! Configure them in your Notification Center to show any to-do list you want. Quickly glance at what you’re doing Today, see what’s Upcoming on your schedule, stay on top of your most urgent project, view tag-filtered lists - the possibilities are endless!
Rich notifications
  • Notifications have been greatly improved, with variable snooze durations - 10 min, 30 min, 1 hour - and a new option to complete a to-do directly from the alert. Perhaps best of all, the app no longer jumps to the foreground when you hit snooze!
Big sur compatibility
  • Remodeled the app icon.
  • Adapted the window layout.
  • Designed new icons for Preferences panes.
  • Designed a new Things Cloud switch.
  • Many other small interface tweaks.
New macs
  • Things fully supports the newly announced Macs with Apple M1 chips: the MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and Mac mini.

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)?
