*** 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 3.1.1
• Fixed a crash on iOS 11 beta (if you disabled notifications as a workaround, you can re-enable them).
• Improved stability and bug fixes.
Love the new version
Been a Things user since way back in the mists of time, and waited with everyone else (with mixed patience, hope, and frustration) for the new version. For me, they did not disappoint: Things 3 brings clarity and freshness back to how clear Things felt at 1.0 (when iOS was heavy and my list of Things was still small. Well done.
Request? Support for Shake to Undo. I'm not a huge fan of shaking my phone around in the air like a lunatic, so I suppose the method is less important than the result and it does fit outside the UI, but it is handy when you just did something you didn't meant to, and you just need an Undo.
Refined UI, just one (small) frustration
Beautiful and thoughtful changes make this super intuitive and simply powerful/powerfully simple implementation of the original GTD styled app. The iOS app is almost better to use than the desktop companion nowadays.
A criticism that probably belongs on the Mac App Store: shortcut keys only work when you are in an individual task, I used to enjoy being able to select multiple tasks and tagging them similarly. Now hitting a shortcut key in the list view just goes to quickfind. Would be nice if you could toggle this option - I have no need to find tasks outside of my logical project / scheduling hierarchy.
Things is central to my life.
Things on my phone and laptop are my absolute #1 most used apps (as a result of reading Getting Things Done by David Allen, which changed my life.) And I wasn't going to update but I took one look at the introduction the trial and realized it was a million percent worth it to buy both the phone and the desktop apps. Huge fan! Yes yes yes!
Things, and specifically the tagging tool, has decreased my daily stress levels significantly. This app has probably extended the length of my life. So, yeah. Get it!
