I really wanted to like this program, even paid for it once I hit the free version's limit on number of tasks. The setup is the most like iGTD, which was the free program I used to use before the developer was hired by the maker of Things and iGTD was eliminated. I like the interface and ease of use, and don't need to pay $50 - $70 for a task manager.

But after I paid and started using the program full bore the bugs started showing up. I already knew that syncing, especially with iDevices, didn't really work well; stuff appears and disappears seemingly randomly. But the program itself on one computer doesn't work properly.

Clicking on an item to mark it as done often makes other items next to it be marked as completed, and then I have to try and figure out what was incorrectly marked. They don't show up under Completed; whether they are marked Recurring or not I can usually find the incorrectly marked items under Next 7 Days. And Undo doesn't work for checked off tasks.

The program fails to accurately keep track of days and move items to the correct category. I have several Overdue items that show up in the Next 7 Days view, but don't appear in the Past Due folder. Bugs like this are rampant, making the program somewhere between extremely difficult to use and useless for trying to keep track of my tasks. I'm spending more time trying to figure out what the program has messed up than viewing my tasks and getting things done.

And to top it all off, the developer is completely unresponsive. I have sent e-mails using the contact form on their site, the only contact method I can see, and have heard nothing.

Stay Away!
