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...

• Renamed the Siri preferences pane to Reminders, and modified its content.

Customer Reviews

Loved Things before, Love T3 even more!

I’ve used Things for a long time, and while Things 3 was a long time coming, I’m very happy with where it is now. I’d been finding it harder and harder to use as the information presentation became more gummy with age, and it’s become clear again to my mind. Very happy!

There are a few things I’d still like to see: I unexpectedly love the new Headings, which let me do some organization without separation, and they’re so useful, I’d love to see Headings in Areas too, rather than just in Projects.

I’d love to see a few basic (please don’t go crazy, just a few) text formatting options in a To Do’s notes (or in a Project’s or an Area’s): just bold, italic, or maybe Heading/Body/Comment pre-canned styles, as well as a list format (sometimes I want to organize in a list with - or • delimiters but a full checklist is too much).

And I’d love to be able to see an overview of all Areas at once, which would mean some form of show/hide detail of Projects in Areas so I could expand one at a time if I wanted to. I find I’m getting things accomplished on the Areas near the top far more than the areas near the bottom, because when I go to set up my day, I start at the top, and then fill my day before I get to the middle or bottom. Out of sight, out of mind, right?

These are things that I’m confident they’ll address somehow, and none are currently show-stoppers. It works well, it’s quick, syncs fast and reliably between my iPad, Mac, and iPhone… core feature set is awesome!
