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 for OS X Yosemite with a refreshed design, and all-new features including a Today Widget for Notification Center, Handoff support for seamless transition between Mac, iPhone & iPad, and a new “Add to Things” extension for creating to-dos from other apps.
"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

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.
Your to-dos, on all your devices. Things Cloud stores your to-dos and updates them quickly & effortlessly across your Macs, iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad (iOS apps sold separately). And best of all, Things Cloud is free!

"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
What's New in Version 2.5.4
• Improved stability and bug fixes.
I have been using Things on and off since it first came out. I love its elegant user interface and ease of use. I find it great for simple tasks and home use, but for work and managing multiple projects it fails miserably. There are no nested folders or subtasks. There is really no excuse for these glaring deficiencies which persisted over almost 4 years time; there has been no significant improvements in functionality or new features except for syncing through their server (which works well by the way). I keep trying it hoping that the developers have added the essential missing feaatures, but then I get disappointed. I used to be an OmniFocus user, then ditched it for Things because it was not updated for a long time, had boring and dated user interface, and was complicated. I just tested the newer version (2.0) and I really like it. Honetly, Things at this stage is not significantly better than the Reminders app built into OS X, which syncs flawlessly, simple to use, secure, and has a nice clean user interface (and is FREE). I have used Reminders for a while, but I need a higher level of organization (folders, subtasks, ..). Right now, my favorite and most used to do app is 2Do; it is not perfect but is the best there is. I have not deleted Things from my Mac yet, and I keep updating it hoping that one day it will improve.
Not integrated, very expensive, requires in-app purchases for usefulness
I was very disappointed, given all the hype about this software. It is a simple to do list, no integration into iCal or Evernote. It requires expensive subscriptions in order to achieve any kind of usefullness. Would like a refund.
