Things 3 App Description

*** 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: WHAT’S NEW? This is a truly incredible update, with dozens of powerful new features. See the “What’s New” section below for a full list.

App Reviews

  • Please switch 3D Touch action order

    By stetsdogg
    Things 3 is a fantastic, wonderful app for managing to-dos and organizing projects. I would love it if the actions were flipped in the menu when 3D Touching on a notification. Instead of: 1. Snooze 2. Complete I suggest: 1. Complete 2. Snooze This will more closely match Apple’s Reminders app, which organizes the action menu: 1. Complete 2. Remind me in 1 Hour 3. Remind me Tomorrow Adding a specific time for “snooze” would also be helpful. Thank you for making such a terrific app. I look forward to future updates!
  • Nothing new here

    By jtinfla
    The app doesn’t import all events from my calendars even the Apple calendar. The watch display for Things doesn’t show meetings on my calendar. I have a meeting scheduled for today and it shows “all done”. I bought this app thinking it would organize everything in one place and display in a nice, easy to read format on my watch but the reminders and calendar events already available work better How do i get my money back ???! Also help feature is awful

    I have searched for years for a replacement to my Palm Pilot and Franklin Covey planners. Finally I have found the perfect app for my needs. Well worth the money. I bought both the iPhone and iPad app and I love it!!
  • BEST List app EVER! And I’ve tried them all!

    By Halfdan5
    I’m a big list maker, every morning and all through the day. It’s the only way I get things done! I used to use Notepad, but since I started using Things 3, I am HOOKED and it is now my MOST-USED app! I use it all day long! I love how you can easily add lists and list items, nest other lists inside your to do item, edit them, move them around, and schedule them! The font is easy to read. It’s absolutely PERFECT! And I keep finding additional things I can do like import other lists and share my list with other apps. Wonder if I can print my list? 5***** all the way! By far my favorite app (and I’ve got a phone FULL of apps!)
  • Best productivity app

    By clumsyjellyfish
    I'm not someone to spend money on apps, but after hearing so much about this one I figured why not. And it's one of the smartest designed apps I've ever used - Apple should buy this and replace their awful reminders app.
  • Far too complicated for me!

    By yikes a snake
    Bet they won’t refund my $
  • Great app but needs more functionality

    By c_theprofessor
    Love this app, and it’s sublime design. It has style, simplicity and good integration. That being said, I really wish there was a way to collaborate with others on tasks, especially across devices. Also, there should be richer notifications (eg. location specific, time specific, etc.). Thanks for reading and keep up the great work!
  • Everything as task manager should be.

    By That guy with the top hat
    Like many users of Things 3, I had tried many different tools all offering their own benefits but this one has surpassed them all for me. The app is simple and flexible but leaves a lot of room for some powerful organization should you need it. The system is extremely accommodating and doesn’t get in the way of itself. If I had to give a suggestion, I would maybe not make the “Inbox” an exclusive location for items, similar to how items may appear in “today” along with other areas. The inbox is a very handy catch all for things I haven’t quite nailed down yet but are more pressing than a “someday” task. It would mostly be a personal preference though.
  • The most comfortable GTD

    By YeJun Su
    Thank you for developing Things. I tried many GTD apps, including Wunderlist, Todoist and OmniFocus, but finally switched to Things 3 and will persist to it. The UI is clear and the UX makes sense to new comers like me. To hide a complex logic behind a simple UI is really a great work. Normally my workflow is: 1. Put everything in Inbox 2. Set a date or deadline for them 3. Move them to different Projects which may belong to a certain area. 4. Set tag for an item to make it easy to be searched
  • Syncing is a mess!

    By JaneD1232
    The app literally hates syncing with my computer, which makes it quite useless in my case. I *really* wish this was fixed!
