*** 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? This is a truly incredible update, with dozens of powerful new features. See the “What’s New” section below for a full list. THINGS FOR ALL YOUR DEVICES Get Things for Mac and iPad to enjoy the full power of Things across your devices (sold separately). The apps all stay updated via Things Cloud – the push sync service that we custom-built for Things. QUESTIONS? If you have any questions, or run into any trouble – please contact us. We provide world-class, professional support for Things, and we’ll be glad to help you.



  • Why didn’t I find this sooner?

    By Enrapture137
    Let me start this by saying I’m one of those people that never leave written reviews. I had to give praise where praise is due though. First of all, I am a very visual person so even if I found an app with perfect functionality, I wouldn’t use it if I didn’t like how it looked. However, this app combines functionality with a nice sleek design that’s not only easy to look at but, easy to use. I’m SUPER picky about to-Do apps and I have been on a search for “the one” for literally years. I think I’ve found it though. They allow you to customize And organize your to-do’s in a myriad of ways. For instance, my favorite thing so far is the Ability to set “Projects” and in those projects, you can not only add notes and headings to keep the todos organized but, on the main screen of the app, there’s a small circle to show your progress on the todo’s inside. I absolutely love this app and had to let y’all know you did an amazing job.
  • Weird functionality, way overpriced.

    By tylermays
    Things Review For what you are paying, these apps should be a lot better for many reasons. First, it only allows you to 'import' (instead of sync with) ONE list from Reminders. Why?? That means that if you tell Siri to add a reminder to a list Things is not synced to, it won't show up there. Yes, you can tell Siri to specifically add it to Things, but that's additional words you have to remember to say, and of course there's additional likelihood Siri won't understand you! Now, once it's 'imported', it is REMOVED from Reminders... Again, why??? Things also can't sync with Alexa's to-do list, unlike (which is free btw)! For me, that alone is enough to dock at least two stars from this review. I use Alexa for to-dos A LOT! Lastly, the user interface can be confusing, like at first trying to figure out how to set repeating to-dos, or figuring out how to set a date on a to-do when the to-do is already listed in the Someday section - you have to move it out of that section before you can set a date on it. automatically moves the to-do to the Upcoming section after setting a date -seems like a basic function for a to-do list app to be able to automatically sort to-dos this way. The interface is frustratingly slow too, responding to your taps like a freaking snail. Seriously, it's 2019! Pick up the pace! Also, why can you can only set deadlines if it's a repeating to-do? Overall, Things gives you more options for organizing your to-do's, but some of the functionality is lacking and just strange. This is unacceptable for what you are paying:$10 for the iPhone app, $20 for the iPad app, and $50 for the Mac app. That comes out to $80 if you want it to work between all of your devices. That is just bonkers!
  • Shared lists?

    By rcdillion
    This is a 6 star app that is hobbled by an inexplicable lack of shared lists.
  • Amazing!

    By Ninja Winslow
    Love this app! It has quickly become one of my most used apps. Simple yet powerful interface for getting things organized and done. It’s totally worth the price.
  • I love things. But...

    By JSF.RE
    I love this app. It is really great for organizational purposes. I love how you guys keep everything nice and up to date. However, there is one flaw that leaves me in regret of buying all three (mac, iPhone, and iPad). The ability to see your see your calendar but not add to your calendar or edit your calendar. As someone who practices time management and am extremely busy with appointments etc. I like to keep everything in one place. I find myself not using this app as frequently as I would like to. It kind of sits stagnant and ill occasionally add something to it only to have it sit there. I am really disappointed because I do love this app so much as far as design, functionality and organizing but unfortunately it looks like I might be out a hundred or so dollars. Super sad.
  • Unintuitive

    By AndrewP MD
    Terribly unintuitive. Difficult to add reminders and no way to add more than one reminder for a single to-do. Confusing nomenclature: groups vs. tags vs. projects; Does Anytime header show to-dos with any due date or no due date? If no due date, then what is the difference between the Anytime and Sometime header?
  • This App is Super!!

    By Mahiiiiil
    I dunno how I survived before this app but it really helped me organize my thoughts and have things done in place! I tried lots of todo apps but this one has the best interface. Very much recommend it!
  • Too restricted

    By Harrydawg
    The app requires a lot of different steps for a simple “to-do”. Not enough flexibility with notifications and organization. Not worth $10 in my opinion
  • The most important app on my iPhone, iPad and Mac

    By M2T3
    Things is truly an indispensable app, it’s become part of how I handle both my business and personal lives. You simply can’t go wrong with Things.
  • Great app. Pls add feature.

    By timur31337
    Please add feature to be able to see your to dos with next line wrapping instead of truncating. If you think that list will not look good anymore it can be a setting. It will be easier to look at the list not having to tap on the task. I look at the list often so will save me the hastle.
  • Nice, but fonts are too small for me

    By wittsend bhairavi
    Can we get some ability to adjust the fonts? Thanks.
  • Separate iPad purchase???

    By dkugappi
    I love the Things app, but expecting users to pay for Things for MacOS, Things for iPhone, AND Things for iPad (when the app is this expensive already) is greedy as hell. To whatever extent my opinion matters, please note I have stopped using Things purely as a result of this pricing strategy and won’t give this developer another dime again, until they make this a singular iOS purchase.
  • This version is great!

    By Octocroco
    Perfect for work. I’ve tried Things before but they nailed it this time.
  • why?

    By هه ريم حسن محمد
    Why should I pay three times in order to get this application on my iPad and Mac?
  • Do it to it

    By thiok
    All task/project mgt apps tend to feature some type of unique design, process, culture of getting things done, etc... but this one is the best. Interface is clean and intuitive, functions are complimentary and reliable. Def worth a try.
  • Tricky at first - but then amazing

    By jtpesek
    It was a bit tricky at first - but the “walk through” actually taught you how to use it while you navigated the walk-through. Very cool. Looking forward to using this app in all the ways it was designed for!

    By Hv1806
    A perfect and very useful app as a student. I have one recommendation which I believe will make this app even more useful, and that is the ability to add screenshots and pics into your reminders for reference. Thank you so much!
  • Slow takes forever to start

    By LEO BSB
    I have an iPhone 8 Plus, and this app takes forever to start. It is also super slow when compared to other similar apps like OmniFocus.
  • Needs dav support

    By Whosjose
    Great app but I hate having to use their cloud service.
  • Like the app, but where’s the features?

    By c_theprofessor
    Like the simplicity and UI of the app but where are all the other features of other to do apps? Such as: - location based reminders - attaching photos to “to-do’s” - Collaboration with other people Again, I really want to like this app but there are other apps that have these features which seem like they should be basic features. Hopefully they can be added at some point cause the app has a great foundation to build upon!
  • Best app I’ve seen for managing tasks

    By warrrior8894
    Simple, yet dynamic with all the tools needed
  • Post Purchase Rationalization or Nah

    By B3AST x3
    I can’t quite determine if I like this app so much because I paid $9 for it but holy crap I feel sooo much more organized. I don’t even really write app review. Things has caressed my soul.
  • Great app but so slow!!!!!!!!

    By tjdew
    I have been a committed user of things 3 on both macOS and iOS for over a year now. It seems that in the past 6 months the iOS app has gotten extremely slow upon opening the it on my iPhone X. It used to be instantaneous and now it takes so long to load my list of things and decide whether or not to be in dark mode. If this is fixed my rating will be back to 5 stars. I couldn’t live without the app!
  • Good. But for $10 its not enough.

    By Elith Arturo
    I think this app can be the ultimate task manager it just needs more innovative features like priority selection and the ability to interact with other Things 3 user by creating groups and giving and receiving tasks, something similar to what Todoist allows its users to do. But overall the best UI and minimalism I've seen in a task manager and it does have some unique and nice features. I just think that for $10 it should have more. 👍🏻
  • Way overrated

    By hansjim
    Cannot change my calendar from this app . The iwatch app only shows today and not other info from someday,etc . For 9.99 I’m not impressed .
  • Beautiful app with critical flaw

    By TFuller
    This is a beautifully-designed app. The inability to share/collaborate with another person is severely limiting.
  • Only One Day View on my Watch?!?!?

    By Zeusman
    I took the plunge and paid the $9.99 for this app and immediately regretted my purchase. Wanted a to-do app that would sit in my complication area of my Apple Watch that Uses Siri to enter to-do’s. Che k, it does that but.....and a big sends the to-do to an “In Box” on the app on my iPhone. I did see that I change from In Box to Today but it’s not easy to switch between them on my phone as the lettering is tiny (smaller than other words and sitting just above the task-that’s too easy to tap). Then you have to go to your phone to move it to a day, and the app asks ‘are you sure you want to move this?’ Adding another few steps and time to a simple entry...that’s self defeating. Then I CANNOT see anything beyond the current day’s to-do’s on my phone....I find that very limiting. I need to be able to scroll down to at least a week’s worth of to-dos. So I can PLAN for those events before that day...not a far fetched idea. This app could be useful but at the moment( in my opinion) this app is better suited to the iPhone and NOT the Apple Watch. I wish I could get my money back on this one. Doesn’t do what I need or enough for the cost.
  • Good

    By Schattenmeister001
    It is a great app and easy to use. I wish that the reminders could be used like the apple reminders. For example, I need to do since and such task every Monday and Friday for the next 6 months. I would also like to see a price drop on the iPad version, last time I checked $20 for the same app is a bit much. Still, this app is great for deconstructing projects to help them get executed properly.
  • Solid App. Needs Collaboration Tool

    By Adam83713
    Overall I like this app. The design works great and for personal task lists this is one of the best. The one area I feel like it needs is the ability to send tasks to others that have the app. For me to be able to supervise somebody effectively it would be great to send somebody a task list and know what others are working on, specifically within projects.
  • My favorite app - can’t live without it

    By LeoShimonaka
    Is one of the most polished thoughtful apps on the store. Not only does every interaction feel delightful, but this caters to both casual and power users alike without cluttering everything. Finally a tool I don’t have to adapt to!
  • Worth every penny!

    By HelloitsDerek
    I avoided this app for so long because of the price tag. However, once you finally take the plunge you will soon realize it's superior high quality software we have here. Follow the tutorial and there are so many things to learn. My favorite thing is the iOS/OS X integration, it's so seamless. All other to-do lists on the market are like regular ordinary cars.. nothing to write home about. This one on the other hand, is like the "insert favorite/dream car" Corvette of to-do lists! You get what you pay for! Developers work hard for a living and they deserve to eat too!
  • Great except logbook/timeline feature minimal

    By pvasa2000
    I wish I could add attachments like invoices, photos, excel sheets, web links to todo items and store in logbook with search feature.
  • Will be 5 stars again when...

    By Cpt'Merica
    ...the AppleWatchOS integration is fixed. When I create new tasks on my watch, they do not show up on my Mac or on my iPhone. When I complete tasks on Things3 for MacOSX or my phone, they do not show up as completed on my watch. I currently have 34 tasks assigned to my “today” list, but on my watch it says there is nothing scheduled for today. I have completely restarted both devices. I have deleted and reinstalled Things three. I have also unpaired and repaired my watch. Nothing seems to work.
  • Good App, but...

    By Matt198701
    I really like this app but there are some features I think would make this a 5-star. 1. Changeable Icon - Default is not easy on the eyes 2. Ability to add Notes within project/etc. like a to-do 3. Option to default expanded display for checklist under To-Do 4. Ability to re-order home screen items 5. Auto-launch selection so it opens to your page preference in the morning (today, upcoming, inbox, project, etc.)
  • Color highlight projects and todos

    By engineer3003
    Love the app, using it since it launched. I frequently wish I had one more dimension to sort my todos and projects with. Highlighting individual rows with a color would achieve that. It could maybe be implemented with special color tags that are interpreted when the todos or projects are displayed.
  • Slick, sleek and powerful

    By podcoast
    I’ve tried a lot of todo and gtd software, but this is the first what has caught on so well and for so long. It’s so easy to use, I’ve ended up using it for everything.
  • Earned a place on my dock

    By j_benj
    This is a spectacular to-do app. I’ve tried many over the years and Things tops them all IMO. Great balance of features and style. Easy to use, fast, and flexible. Update: the devs keep providing great updates to an already amazing app. This is hands down the best to-do app on iOS period. I rely on Things every single day to keep me on track with everything. Thanks guys - truly. This app is a joy to use and is still on my dock to this day 🤗
  • Flawless Victory!!!

    By Fueled by God
    It has everything I’ve ever wanted in a todo app without adding the extra fluff. Clean and aesthetically pleasing. I loved the little intro project that shows you how to use the whole app. That made me love it right away.
  • Freezes when a to do list is open

    By donnyfrom229
    When opening a to-do list inside of a project, it doesn’t let you close the to-do. You have to let it sit for a minute and figure its life out. Please fix!
  • The Best

    By cdstamper
    I would delete everything on my phone before Things. Not only is it better than ever other Todo app, it looks and feels better than most apps overall.
  • Most beautifully designed app I’ve ever seen

    By itsvai
    This app is so simple yet so powerful. I can customize everything I without it feeling cluttered with features.
  • Compared this to OmniFocus, Todoist, asana, and Wunderlist.

    By eightyanthony
    And google keep and OneNote. Things wins!
  • Worth every penny

    By CU nate_dogg
    I rarely take the time to write a review for an app but this one deserves a five star review. I have tried every task or to do app out there and never found one that actually worked for me and helped me accomplish all that I need to accomplish. That is until I found Things 3. This is an amazing app that I already love and feel will help me be more productive. My only request of the developer is to make a Windows or web-based version. I do have the iPad version but it would be nice to be able to view it on my PC. That’s a first world problem for sure. Thanks.
  • excellent app but....

    By almodaf
    it needs arabic right to left language support!!..
  • Great with a couple suggestions

    By BigBlock409
    Overall, a solid to-do both on the Mac and iPhone. A couple features I’d love to see would be: Archives for making old projects inactive but not deleting them. This would allow storing a project without it cluttering search. Faster loading would be ideal as well. For example, opening the app takes a second or two. The sync is not instant either so if I make a to-do and close my phone real quick, it doesn’t appear on my Mac unless I allow the mobile app more time to sync. Not sure why that is; iCal and just about every other Mac app syncs perfectly for me.
  • Good, but could be great.

    By Dave Millions
    I’ve been through most todo apps. I downloaded this, tried it for a week, then had to switch back to 2Do. The app is missing crucial elements like the ability to set repeating reminders outside of numbered time frames. For example, you can repeat every x days, weeks, months, etc but not, say, every Tuesday and Thursday every 2 weeks. It also has no location based reminders, which the developers don’t seem to provide good reason for. Finally: there are no reasonable ways to attach things or url extensions easily. Even adding basic support to link a contact later so you can make a reminder like “text Steve later” and have that launch messages is something other apps can do. Overall it is a beautifully designed app, but until it’s functions match 2Do I can’t justify purchasing any more of the suite.
  • App is great just wish it had...

    By Fhdjejskbv
    I just wish u could make the app notify you when a todo is coming soon . And also more interaction with imported calendar events and ability to add to calendar from the app.
  • No Tab for linked calendars?

    By Delete My Account Please
    I only see start times for events, but not the end times, in ‘today’. I would love this app if there would be better integration with calendars, it’s so close to being a great mobile daily task manager. Surprises occur in the day and the ability to move things around for the day would be nice, if only I could see what time slots I have available... without having to switch between my calendar. Thanks for considering my suggestions.
  • Great way to create to-do lists!

    By Briank24708
    Love this app. Great interface and enjoy how well it functions!
