“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.

Doesn’t Quite Cut It
Gosh, I was so excited for this app. It seems like it would have everything you need, especially for the steep price tag ($50) PLUS you have to pay an additional $10 if you want the iPhone app. But whatever, I was willing to pay for the supposed supreme service. However, after using it for a month, I am not seeing how it could be worth $50. While it is nice to have all of the task and project management, it seems to be missing the location and, specifically, TIME of task due. I also want reminders to pop up before the due time. Unfortunately a lot of what I do has a time deadline, so I end up using iCal to put in the time reminder, and Things to put in the general task/project. Also - while this is non-essential - I think the design needs a lot of help. It’s not the best design experience. Though I could easily get over that. What I’m saying is, for the price, I was really hoping to replace all my to do list formats. Instead, this is only one piece, and I could have gotten that for much cheaper. I can easily see myself fading from using it, in favor of somethig more all encompaassing. But, seeing as it’s an app, I believe (and hope!!) they make the necessary updates to allow it to qualfiy for the price bracket.
Its pretty good except one thing..
Thought this app would be perfect for me since its so simple and clean. it does not have an option to remind you at a certain time, you’d think for $50 this app would at least have the option for a timable reminder.. really dont understand the reason for not offering that to your users.. kind of wish I could return it now. smh
A near great app with a critical fault!
This app has ALMOST all the tools to be the ultimate app for getting organized - including easy, quick input option for todo's (quick keyboard shortcut on Mac and, more critical, Siri option for the Iphone), organziation options including projects and tags, as well as drag and drop options for notes, and cloud syncing. However, it is amazing that such a potentially great app, and a pretty expensive one at that, does not support two of the most critical functions of any getting things done/reminder app worth its salt - TIME AND LOCATION REMINDERS! How they do not support this is mind blowing….Have a project going and need to meet with a colleague at 230pm…..have to use something else as things only allows you to set a date (NOT TIME) for something. Want to be reminded to check on something when you get to work….again, cant use Things as it has not location based alerts. So as much as I want to use things (especially since I have bought both Mac/and IOS versions), I have given up, and recommend you do to, until they correct this glaring omission. Maybe they have “support timed and location reminders” on there list of things to do……but havent got around to it because they “havent been able to set a time for it to get done” : ).
