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.



If you’re new to Things, this is the basic workflow:

1. Collect Your Thoughts
Get things off your mind quickly: no matter what app you’re in, a keyboard shortcut instantly reveals Quick Entry. Type your thoughts and save them to the Inbox. 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.


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. As an example, take Type Travel, a remarkable new way to navigate your lists. You just start typing where you want to go – the name of any project, area, or to-do – and instantly you’re transported there. Or look at the Natural Date Input – just type “Tom(orrow)”, “Sat(urday)”, “in fou(r days)”, “Au(gust 1)”., and it will jump to all the right conclusions.

4. It’s got all the power of macOS.
Things is fully integrated with all the latest macOS technologies: Touch Bar, Today Widget, Calendars, Siri & Reminders, Share Extension, Handoff, and AppleScript.

5. And much more...

Customer Reviews

Simple is good, except when it’s not

The best thing about Things is its accessibility. You can put it to use almost right away. The Inbox function is the easiest tool for a mind sweep that I’ve yet found, and the sync is rock solid. I rely heavily on Things, both on the Mac and the iPhone.

The few limitations reveal themselves after you get past a limited level of usage. For instance, once you’ve got more than two or three items in a Project, you need the ability to prioritize them, and Things doesn’t offer much for this beyond tags. This encourages thinking of Projects in a much smaller way than at least I do. In response, my Things file has lots of Projects and Areas, which makes my sidebar mighty cluttered and hard to navigate. The ability to color-code to-dos or projects or, in some clear way, signal a sense of priority would be very welcome.

As it is, Things is ultimately not *the* tool to help manage a complicated life. That said, it is an excellent helper for one undertaking GTD and may be all that’s needed for the user looking to instill some order on the to-do list.

A great application but missing API access

Everyone is different but I personally love the ability to view a project with headers, and multiple list with the ability for subtasks that help me not forget but also dont become clutter. I realize this probably isnt an issue for most people however, I was very surprised to see that there is no API for interacting with things cloud. With my other to do lists (and almost everyone I tried out) I was able to run AWS lambdas that read from various rss feeds from things like trakt tv and intuitvly create the tasks I need. Especially considering the integration with other apple products so there must be something internally that exists. I may be able to accomplish that with applescript but it definatly will not be as straightforward.

Its a really nice app… but

I find myself abandoning Things 3 for Todoist primarily because I really like having the menu bar item where I can access the app from anywhere, without having it show up as I command-tab through open apps. It may seem trivial, but I really would like to see the option to hide or show in the menu bar OR in the dock. Seems having those options would make Things more versatile for different workflow preferences. For me, I certainly don’t need to see another open app icon when I’m flipping from one app to another.
