*** 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 in Version 3.1.3
New in 3.1.3
• Improved stability and bug fixes.
New in 3.0:
• ALL-NEW DESIGN
How it looks, how it works, and how it feels – Things has been completely redesigned, with more clarity, improved workflows, better structure, and delightful animations. It’s a to-do list like no other.
• PROJECT HEADINGS
It’s so much easier to handle your projects now that you can break them up with headings. Use them to create categories, milestones, or whatever you need.
Some things take several steps to complete but don’t require a full-blown project. So we now have Checklists, which help you break down the finer details of a to-do. Use them for shopping lists, when packing your bag for a trip, or to detail a process at work so you won’t miss a critical step.
• DESKTOP-CLASS LIST EDITING
Editing your lists on iOS now comes with lots of power, and no friction. Swipe to-dos to multi-select them, then edit them all at once: set their date, move them to another list, or tap and drag the group together.
• MAGIC PLUS BUTTON
Finally, a versatile way to insert a to-do right where you want it! Just drag the magical button with your finger and let go. You can also drag it toward the left margin in a project to create a Heading, or drop a new item to your inbox from any other list.
• CALENDAR INTEGRATION
Display calendar events alongside your to-dos and stay on top of your schedule. They will show at the top of your Today list, and for each day in Upcoming, where you plan the week ahead.
• SWIPE TO SCHEDULE
Working with dates is super easy with the new When selector. Simply swipe on any to-do to bring it up, then quickly choose when you want to start: Today, a later date, or it on hold in Someday.
• NATURAL LANGUAGE RECOGNITION
The When Selector has a magical ingredient: Natural Language Recognition. It smartly detects what you’re typing to work out what you mean... “Tom(orrow)”, “Sat(urday)”, “in fou(r days)”, “Au(gust 1)”. As you can see, it jumps to all the right conclusions.
• PLAN YOUR DAY – WITH TODAY AND THIS EVENING
Once you’ve made your plan, the Today list is your go-to place for all daily activities. Calendar events now display at the top, giving an outline of your schedule. Your to-dos follow, with a discrete section at the bottom called This Evening for things you’ll get to later in the day.
• PLAN YOUR WEEK – WITH UPCOMING
Plan your week ahead with the new Upcoming list. It shows everything on your agenda for the coming days: scheduled to-dos, repeating to-dos, deadlines, and calendar events. A quick peek at this list is all it takes to stay on top of your schedule.
One of Things’ most-requested features is now here: time-based reminders! You can add a reminder by typing (natural language recognition), or just speak to Siri. For those to-dos you absolutely cannot miss, reminders will give you peace of mind.
• QUICK FIND
Search and navigation in Things is now extremely fast, with Quick Find. All you need to do is swipe down in any list and start typing – the name of a project, to-do, or tag – and instantly you’re taken there. It’s magic!
• APP-WIDE TAG FILTERS
Just search for the name of any tag to pull up an app-wide filter. It shows all items with that tag across all your projects and areas. It’s a fantastically versatile way to view your to-dos.
• THE NEW SOURCE LIST
Projects are now shown directly under their areas to keep everything tidy. Each one also has a progress indicator that shows just how close you are to achieving your goal.
• AND MUCH MORE

They've thought of everything
I was an die hard OmniFocus user for the last few years and after what seemed like an eternity for Things 3 to be released, it was well worth the wait. With a million different to-do apps to chose from, it's hard to find the one that works best for how YOU work. Things 3 is that. They've thought of everything. From the section heads, to the checklists within a to-do. It sounds like unnessccary complexity but it's executed perfeclty. I could go on but all just say, by now I've found a few things I can't stand about yet another task management application that makes using it feel counterintuitive - I haven't found that with Things 3. Rather, MORE things I find insanely useful. Get both the iOS and Mac apps, it's worth the investment.
It's pretty good, but not quite 💯 for me.
I have been a Things user since version two. Though I appreciate the fantastic new user interface, I simply cannot get excited about all of the "new features". I feel this software continues to fall behind others in regards to feature set. HOWEVER, as I said, I very much appreciate the TLC of the design, user experience, and the ability to purchase each app one time and have full functionality without having to subscribe to premium services.
That being said... As of 6/7/17...
☑️ UI/UX (Things has never failed here.)
☑️ One-Time Purchases (no need for premium.)
☑️ GTD Task Flow
☑️ Simple Rescheduling
☑️ Siri Import
☑️ Calendar Import
☑️ Organizational Task Headings
☑️ Snooze (10 Minutes)
☑️ Task Repeat
☑️ Task Duplication
❌ No Cross Platform
❌ No Collaboration
❌ No File Uploads
❌ No Custom Smart Lists
❌ No Calendar Sync
➕ Kanban view for projects on macOS app would be cool. Feature set already there with headings and moving tasks, just need horizontal view.
➕ Web browser interface at least. (for cross platform)
➕ Calendar sync for viewing in traditional calendar app.
I have tried dozens of to-do apps hoping that one would help me get my life organized. Finally - Things 3 is the one! It's powerful without being overwhelming, and I love the way you can create lists, headings, and checklists within a task. And, it simply looks great.
I used Things 2 for a while, but this is truly more than a simple upgrade. Well worth the price in my opinion. Would I rather it be a free or less expensive upgrade (I have the Mac version too)? Of course, but I'm happy to pay for a quality product.
