*** 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: thingsapp.com

What's New

Version 3.5.1

Things 3 has been out for a while now and we’ve received lots of fantastic feedback – thank you so much! For today’s release, we took a close look at all your suggestions and revisited many areas of the app to polish it up. The result is Things 3.5 – a “Spit and Polish” release that combines 29 great little features and improvements into one big update.

# AREAS — Now Collapsable!
Without a doubt, collapsable areas has been one of our most requested features. If your project list is super long – or if you just don’t want to see work projects on the weekend – collapse your areas to hide them.

# TAGGING
• We’ve made the tags window searchable on iOS. Sweet! Just pull down and start typing to find the tag you want.
• We’ve made app-wide tag searches broader. When you search for a tag, you won’t just see items with that tag, but also items with its nested tags.
• A feature from Things 2 has also made a comeback: you can once again filter by “No Tag”.

# INPUT/OUTPUT — Copy & Paste Magic
• Paste text from other apps into Things to create new to-dos (multiple lines of text will create multiple to-dos).
• Paste multiple lines of text into the title field of a to-do; the first line is the title, the rest goes into the notes.
• New on Mac: Copy to-dos, headings, or projects and paste them into other apps.
• New on Mac: Copy to-dos, projects, or headings and paste them into other lists within Things.
• New on Mac: Drag text into a Things window to create new to-dos (you can also drag files from Finder, people from Contacts, emails from Mail, etc.).
• New on Mac: Move items to other lists by hitting Cmd+C and then using the new “Move Here” shortcut: Cmd+Option+V.

On iOS, you’ll find the new paste option in the top right corner under the (v) menu.

# THINGS URLs — Update Existing Items
We were extremely pleased with the launch of Things URLs, which allow you to create data in Things from outside the app. One of the main feature requests we’ve received is to provide a way to also make *changes* to items that already exist. This is now possible, thanks to our new UPDATE commands. See our website for more info.

# TODAY WIDGET
The Today Widget now shows:
• Inline icons for checklists & reminders.
• A moon for items in This Evening.
• Progress pies for projects.

# PERFORMANCE
• Some people have projects with thousands of to-dos. Whoa! Those projects should load faster now.
• We’ve sped up the generation of new repeating to-do instances.

# LINKS
Links are now consistently detected everywhere: in to-do titles, notes, and checklists.

# SETTINGS
• Redesigned settings on iOS for more clarity.
• A new setting on iOS: Today > Group by List.
• Options in the MacBook Pro’s Touch Bar can now be customized.

# DATE HANDLING
• Full completion dates are now displayed in the Logbook.
• Improved how multi-day events are displayed.

# ZAPIER INTEGRATION
We’ve been working with Zapier to build deeper integration with our Mail to Things feature. They’ve now published a range of official Zaps that let you create to-dos from business tools such as Slack, Trello, Basecamp, and more.

# AND MORE…
• Headings in projects can now be duplicated.
• Improved layout when in full-screen mode on Mac.
• Fixed a bug that could affect the system alert volume.
• Fixed a crash when duplicating items that were new in Today.
• Fixed two other crashes.

—— New in Things 3.5.1 ——
• Improved stability and bug fixes.

Editors' Notes

Everyone needs a task manager—and Things is adaptable enough for anyone. This Apple Design Award winner is crisp and lightweight, featuring a simple but effective interface. The ever-present Magic Plus button makes it easy to add to-do’s from anywhere in the app, and organising items is as simple as dragging them where you want them. It’s like the unicorn of productivity tools: deep enough for serious work, surprisingly easy to use and gorgeous enough to enjoy staring at.

Ideal Task Manager

SiDavies

Things is an incredibly powerful and flexible way to manage to do lists and simple projects across multiple devices. I like the ability to tag or create collections and the search function is really powerful.

The interface is intuitive and can be configured in different ways to suit how you want to use it - so it works for you rather than the other way round. You need to get into good habits like capturing actions (which is made easier by the links with other apps) and regularly reviewing and updating status.

Not the cheapest, but having used other task managers I would say this is by far the best. It was money well spent when I consider the time it’s saved me by being more organised and efficient- it’s probably paid for itself, in terms of time saved, every month.

£30 well spent...

I hate lists, I hate to-dos, I hate reminders.... I love Things 3.

I've spent my entire life doing things because they need doing; if I really need to remember something I'll put it in a calendar. However the number of things I need to track was getting crazy.

I heard numerous podcasts saying how nice Things was so I tried on the iPhone version and immediately loved it.

It has an easy, flexible interface which meant I could put tasks when i thought I'd do them, like a calendar.
I can put personal stuff that occurs to me at work to do this evening.
I can add bulleted thoughts to a task and change the order.
I can group tasks into a project.
I can move things around so easily to help me work out what to do next.
The Watch app is awesome- I was walking along suddenly thought of something to do tapped the complication recorded what I needed to do (Watch Series 1) and it appeared on my iPhone waiting to be triaged.

I can give the email address to my partner so she can email me things to do. Which don't appear in my Today list, but are on the queue to be thought about.

Best! I can export straight from Mind node.

So I've got the ipad and iphone versions - best £30 I've spent.
