“Things is a true standout thanks to a great set of features and an interface that makes it a good fit for nearly any level of task management: It’s simple enough to use for the most-basic to-do lists ... but it’s powerful enough to handle a full blown GTD workflow... Things offers a unique combination of ease of use, a great interface, and flexibility that sets it apart from other to-do managers I’ve used.” – Dan Frakes, Macworld, 4½ stars
“Of course, everyone has specific needs and preferences that will steer them toward a particular to-do-list program or another. But Things’ combination of ease of use, great interface, and flexibility make it as close to the ideal Mac to-do app as we’ve seen.” — Macworld

When you start using Things, you’ll be surprised how easy it is to enter and manage your tasks. And with Things’ beautiful interface, task management becomes a delight. But all of this doesn’t come at the expense of power—everything you wish for in a task manager, Things has you covered.
• Today: Decide which tasks you want to do today and put them into your Today list. Throughout the day, come back to this list to check items off. Things will automatically show you due and scheduled items there once their date arrives -- so you won’t miss anything important.
• Focus: See what you need to do Today, what’s coming up Next, and what’s Scheduled for later. Put tasks in Someday if you can’t work on them right now, you can always come back to them later.
• Keep organized: Work, Family, Hobby - with Things, everything has its place. Projects and Areas of Responsibility let you master complex tasks and stay on top of your responsibilities in life and work.
• Use Tags to assign contexts, priorities, time – whatever fits your personal workflow. Quickly filter a list to find those tasks which are most relevant now.
• Out of your head, into Things: Enter new ideas the moment they hit you. Things’ Quick Entry window lets you add new tasks without interrupting your work. And thanks to the amazing Autofill feature, the Quick Entry window can be automatically pre-filled with the currently selected text, along with a link to the email you are reading, the webpage you are currently viewing, or the document you are editing (works with most applications).
• And much more: Create repeating tasks, add due dates, schedule tasks for a later date, import Reminders, review completed tasks in the Logbook, etc.

What's New in Version 2.8.4
• Improved stability and bug fixes.
This is still the king
My life is full of singular tasks and not multi-step projects. I am presented with “fires” and random tssks throughout the day. Things keeps everything organized. It is simple and complete and works everywhere I need it to. The sync is complete and instant, better than any other cloud syncing out there. I have literally tried every other task manager in the app store and always come back to Things. It is the king and the master of my tasks every day. Thank you for the stability and the “works every time” app that site right on my dock. I use Due if I need an alarm. Things gives me the task list for the day, and I work through it. Tasks that require a time live wither on my calendar or I simply set an alarm with Due.
The best organizer application ever!
I absolutely love things! This app makes my day. It is easy to use and it allows me to store everything (reminders, regularly scheduled appointments, random happenings, assignments), give everything due dates, add notes if I need to, schedule when I would like it to appear in my to-do list for the day and break down/organize the steps required to complete bigger projects (my thesis, research papers, presentations, work projects). I love the interface because it is extremely intuitive which helps me from ever feeling overwhelmed by the sheer number of tasks I need to complete. I feel like I get so much more done when I use this app.
I’m constantly seeking the best app to adapt to the light-GTD methodology that I’ve adopted. Over the last few years, I’ve dabbled with Omnifocus (great tool, but too granular for me), TaskPaper (fantastic tool for desktop, but terrible on mobile, and isn’t configured out-of-the-box for GTD), Clear (too simple and not GTD), and many others. At the end of the day, it was the mobile version of Things that completely sold me. I loved the simplicity, the fact that it allowed me to adopt GTD without feeling overwhelmed, and has customization in the right places. I adopted the desktop app after and now am immersed in the Things world of task management. I haven’t tried the Apple Watch app, but it’s nice to know there’s an option. Things Cloud syncs between devices without issue. Searching works well both within the app, and within Spotlight. I’m hoping for constant updates from Cultured Code, as I know Omnifocus is also being kept up to date regularly. The price is a bit steep, but if you’re serious about having a dedicated system for GTD, I believe it’s worth it. There’s free-trial on the Cultured Code website if you’re on the fence.
