Things is a delightful and easy to use task manager. It’s the perfect companion for everything you want to achieve in life, offering a great balance between ease of use and powerful features.

— Updated with full compatibility for OS X 10.11 El Capitan—including support for Split View, and spring-loading lists with Force Touch trackpad —

“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.


Things also includes a Today Widget for Notification Center, Handoff support for seamless transition between Mac, iPad, iPhone, and Apple Watch, an “Add to Things” sharing extension for creating to-dos from other apps, and support for Split View and Force Touch Trackpad.


Your to-dos, on all your devices. Things Cloud is a free service that stores your to-dos and updates them quickly & effortlessly across your Mac, iPad, iPhone, and Apple Watch (apps sold separately).


We provide world-class, professional support for Things. If you have any issues or questions about the app, please contact us and we’ll be glad to help you:

Has snycing problem

I really like using Things every day. I have only one problem that I run into when I do not use the app on the Mac for a long time. I usually use my iPhone to use Things and when I open the app on the Mac it will show for example 50 items past due. Problem then is it syncs the worng way. Instead of snycing where I am on the phone it goes the other way and shows the 50 items past due on my phone. Then I have to go through and clear out all those items. Wish this could get fixed. Still love the app and all the reoccuring options. Really helps me to get things done that I would otherwise forget or put off.

Should be a 5 start app

No jpeg attachments,...Wunderlist is killing you in this deptatment. The only thing keeping me away from Wunderlust is its under new ownership.
try subscription based (again, Wunderlist playbook) for special features.
New production additions annoucned way too far in advance….leaves users waiting for months. HYPE has a half-life of 15 seconds.
I love this product but i am starting to look at other apps that support jpeg attachments but none are as beautiful as the UI of Things….then again Getting thigns done is about GETTING THINGS DONE,…not about beauty of UI. I wish Apple would put you out of your misery and just buy you and make it work as it should.
Sorry guys,..i have been a long time supporter and customer but its almost time to move on…you are behind the times.

Does one thing extremely well

I’ve been using Things for 2 years now. It isn’t filled with bells and whistles, meaning that once you learn it and work it into your habits it’s very easy to stay organized and not get distracted “optimizing your productivity”. Every interaction you have with the app is intuitive and obvious. Things is extremely well designed.

I’m lowering my rating because the lack of undo support is embarassing. The only option that can be undone is actually deleting a task (because you can move it out of the trash) but you cannot, for example, undo changing a task's name / notes / due date; moving a task; or completing a task.
