*** 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: Calendars, Siri & Reminders, Today Widget, Slide Over, Split View, 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

Finally an intuitive ToDo manager
From someone that has tried to get the GTD system into a habbit a few times, and given up due to the available tools being to complex (f.x. OmniFocus), this program is a godsend. Everything is so intuitive and smooth, and the user interface is excellent, things just work as you'd expect them to work. I highly recommend buying the book "GTD with Things 3", which can be downloaded though iBooks. It's a short read, introduces the most important parts of the GTD system and shows how to incorporate that system in Things 3. It's a small learning curve to begin with. But totally worth it! A highly productive system. Also for those who don't want to get into the hassle of adopting a whole ToDo system like GTD, then I also recommend the program (the program is just GTD friendly, not dependent on the GTD system). Its so intuitive, and the included tutorial really gets you going. I can't believe how thrilled and excited I am about a ToDo manager! But it's completely changing the way how I schedule and manage my "things". Only drawback is that the iPad app doesn't support shortcuts, so working with a smart keyboard isn't as smooth as it could be, still I'm not complaining! So developers if you're listening... PLEASE bring in shortcut support! :) Thanks for an awesome app!
I think I'm really liking this
I've used and tested a lot of task manager apps. At the moment, Things 3 seems promising. After years of using LifeTopix I started looking for something that would be easier for inputting tasks super-fast (a la Mindsweep). But I did love the ability to see my schedule and tasks all in one place, and links to contacts were helpful, although in LifeTopix fairly clunky. I tried a few apps and ended up using Todoist for the last several months. I didn't like not being able to see my schedule easily and I didn't like getting all the tasks in a single list every day; but I loved the intuitive language functionality on adding tasks, and location-based reminders were nice. I tried OmniFocus but found it set up too much like LifeTopix as I lost the ease of dumping a bunch of tasks in all at once. I'm now using Things 3. The interface is beautiful--very clean, crisp, and useful. I can see my schedule--yay. I LOVE having the headings and the ability to mark things as "evening," as I have several repeating tasks I do every evening at home, and it's nice to have those separated out visually. I love seeing my tasks organized by project, as it helps me decide what my priorities are for my time. I really miss the intuitive language input and location-based reminders, though. If Things 3 could add those, we'd be golden.
OmniFocus, 2Do and ToDo, bye
2 years ago I downloaded Things 2 and tried it for awhile. I just didn't get it at the time. When I saw the video of the version 3 I was intrigued. There was a nice video review on the internet. I downloaded the trial and gave it another try and I loved it. It was so much better and easier than I remembered. So much so I bought the whole suite (Mac,iOS, iPad). Been using them now a few days and find things going really well.
Just an update, since using Things 3 exclusively since it was released now, I have to say that although I like some of the features I liked best in OmniFocus, 2Do or ToDo are not missed. I am loving Things 3 so much that the others are just a thing of the past.
