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...
Everyone’s got their favorite feature, it’s impossible to list them all. See what our users love about Things – visit our website at:

Phenomenal App!! So improved over Things 2!!

I have been using Things for a couple of years. Quite honestly, I had become frustrated enough with Things 2 (the previous version) that I was planning to switch to Omnifocus. There were too many important things that Things 2 couldn’t do. Then Things 3 came out!! I watched the videos on the new version and found that it now contains every single item on my list that I felt was missing. I immediately bought Things 3 for all my devices and couldn’t be happier. (Note: They give free updates for the app. This version from Things 2 to Things 3 is a complete overhaul of the application so we did need to purchase it but got a discount if we bought in the first month.)

I use Things on my Mac, iPhone, and iPad mini. They have an app for each. Things makes the most of the format of each device. The apps sync seamlessly and instantaneously through Things Cloud. I do not know what they are doing with their cloud but it is awesome. Things Cloud is like lightning whereas many other apps' syncs are like slow trains!

Instead of listing all the things I love about Things 3, watch the videos. They show all this NEW app can do.

Ps. Omnifocus is quite a bit more expensive than Things which really adds up when buying apps for 3 devices. It appears to me that Things took the best of Omnifocus but made it more straightforward to use, for a lower price.

Efficient, Sleek, and Simple Productivity App

I have tried a number of different productivity apps and was using Things 2 along with a paper productivity planner for my weekly focused time mangagment. I think the Things 3 app is incredibly intuitive and an upgrade from Things 2. Well done! I love the simple clear and clean white interface. If you are looking for an app that can be used with the concepts from the Getting Things Done, and not as complicated as Omnifocus, this may be a good fit for you. Omnifocus has everything you can imagine, whereas Things 3 will not feel as complicated. I also downloaded the iphone app and the sync time is incredibly quick between my computer and phone. Overall, this may seem like a bit of an investment on the frontend but I am content that I purchased this product.

Gorgeous, Smooth…Yet Not Useful To Me.

Things 3 has two fatal flaws when it comes to my personal workflow: (A) It does not allow you to easily sort tasks based on Priority, and (B) It does not give you a simple way to sort items within Projects by Due Date.

I understand that the simplicity of Things 3’s interface is its strong suit, and I really DO like several designs they use when compared to their competitors (the “Magic Circle” is especially nice for mobile). However, it really only has one purpose (“help me organize my tasks”), which it fails to do in comparison to others.

I asked for a refund, and am switching my tasks to ToDoist until I find something better. With ToDoist’s labels and filters system, I’m confident it will satisfy in the areas that Things 3 could not.
