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: 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.
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. 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: thingsapp.com

What's New in Version 3.2
Things 3.2 delivers full compatibility with macOS 10.13 High Sierra, plus these changes:
• Renamed the Siri preferences pane to Reminders, and modified its content.
• Minor tweak to the contents of the tutorial project.
• Fixed an issue where, if a to-do or heading was currently being edited, Cmd+N would insert a new to-do at the wrong place in a list.
• Fixed a crash that could occur when deleting a tag that was selected in the tag filter bar.
• Fixed a crash that could occur when collapsing to-dos after editing them.
A crowning achievement
I worked with David Allen at Actioneer writing To Do apps. I have developed my own To Do apps. I have used dozens of different To Do apps. I understand what makes a To Do app great. It is easy to write a run-of-the mill, database-driven To Do app. To make a great To Do app is so much harder. You have to think about every use case and decide what matters most to your customers. You need to streamline your interface until every move feels natural. You need to support all the different axes a todo can lie on while not overwhelming your customers with choices. With the release of Things 3, the developers have created a To Do app that not only serves its customers needs esquitely well, but inspires them to get all their todos into the system and get things done. It looks beautiful and has a carefully crafted feature set that covers almost any scenario you will encounter. Todos don’t live in a static list per-se, but rather inside of a dynamic system that serves to surface todos at the right moment and the right place. It might take a tad getting used to, but once you dive in you will be rewarded with a more organized life.
Finally found THE ONE
Things 3 is the task manager I have been dreaming of for years. I have tried lots. THINGS 3 NAILS IT. I told my best friend she can start shopping for china. This is true love, and we’re going to be together for a long time.
SO EASY: I downloaded the trial version and was off and running right away. Adding, editing and moving things around is just click and go.
CLEAN DESIGN: It’s pretty to look at and you can see what’s going on at a glance - by date, by project, even by Someday. The nice balance of white space means you don’t feel overhelmed.
FLEXIBLE: You can customize it the way you want & move things around so easily. Add dates, times or reminders. Can connect to calendar, so meetings and events will show up on your list also.
DETAIL THE RIGHT WAY … OUT OF THE WAY: I LOVE that you can add notes and links UNDER a to do item. They are tucked away and hidden from your main list, but just click and you have every thing you need to know gathered right there under your to do. you can even create bulleted lists under a to do.
LOGBOOK: Keeps your completed tasks, and lets you celebrate what you got DONE!
Things 2 was better
Things 3 crashes 1 in every 3 times I open it on mobile. Adding a recurring task is not intuitive anymore. You have to close the task, click the ... button, then set to repeat. It's also not in the same place as simply just adding a new task. No, new tasks + new recurrings tasks take two entirely different steps now. Same problem on desktop. You can't just create a new recurring task or change the type from the new task input fields.
