Things 3 application logo


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 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.


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:

Things 3 App Description & Overview

The applications Things 3 was published in the category Productivity on 2017-05-18 and was developed by Cultured Code GmbH & Co. KG. The file size is 69.24 MB. The current version is 3.2.3 and works well on 10.0 and high ios versions.

Things 3.2 delivers full compatibility with iOS 11 and watchOS 4, and a brand-new feature: Siri Integration. We’ve also improved link detection for links from third-party apps.

You can now use Siri to quickly add a task, display a list, or search for a tag (requires iOS 11). For example, you might say:
- Create a new task: “Add a task in Things”
- Create a task with a title: “In Things, create a task to buy milk”
- Set a reminder: “Using Things, remind me tomorrow at 9 AM to make a dinner reservation”
- View your list for the day: “Show my Today list in Things”
- Search for a tag across all your lists: “Show my Errands list in Things”
- and more…

—— New in 3.2.3 ——

• Modernized the notifications architecture and fixed related bugs.
• Fixed issues related to the large complication on Apple Watch.
• Fixed some issues with the parsing of message links.
• Fixed some bugs related to background app activity.

Things 3 App Tips & Tricks

Easy to use  kenny 2009  5 star

Finally decided to move on trying a new app to keep track of my to do list. After a little research i decided to try Things 3. It ended up being a very good decision. This app is easy to use. I have converted over to it completely. I even set it up to keep track of the TV programs i am watching. I am glad i made this move to start using it. 10/21 update: now i am really into this app 100% i decided to delete my reminder app. This app has motivated me to keep up with my projects and to do list referring to it as my day passes. Great app.


Great organizer  transosaur  5 star

Only criticism is that for setting up tasks that need to be repeated, it doesn’t seem possible to change the length of the repeat term without deleting the task and creating an entire new task.


works well at good price but no gps support  Zeimus  4 star

Yeah the ui is cool. I like the projects and tags and such. Sync is nice and imports are good. However the stock reminders app features location support. I’d like to see that added.


Great app with an important shortcoming  Prasad1337  4 star

Love the devs for this gorgeous and incredibly useful app! My only issue with it is there's no option for colors coding different tags. So I have to click on a task to see its tag instead of identifying tags of tasks at a glance from the entire list.. This should have been a no brainer to include.. Pretty much every other todo app has it, and for good reason. For example, I find it critically important to flag "Important" tasks as red..


Clean & Elegant  Manfredgensenden  5 star

I’m so impressed with Things! It’s very clean and elegant. I’ve been using Things for a few years now. It keeps getting better. This latest version is so intuitive and powerful, yet remains uncluttered. I highly recommend it.


Essential  simmy131  5 star

I’m a recent convert to GTD (still working my way through the book) and this app has proved invaluable in managing the myriad “stuff” in my life. As I’ve been using the app more and more, I’ve grown to appreciate features I never had much use for before (looking at you, Someday). My one request would be some type of weekly review feature to help me keep on top of items that have been sitting in the app for awhile and a way to see how long to-dos have been languishing in some forgotten project. I think this would help me make better decisions regarding what should get done when, and what should be delegated to “Someday.” Overall, thanks for making such a useful (and beautiful app). Couldn’t live without it!


GTD the perfect way  sfoderi  5 star

Apple has to replace it’s reminders to THINGS 3!!


Not scalable  kjglobal  2 star

While I just purchased the iPhone version US$10, I was disappointed to find I had to purchase the iPad app for US$20. And of course it can’t be used on an android device. All in all I’m sorry I purchased it.


Great Design for getting things done!  JeffS91  5 star

I've just started using the app. The tutorial was very informative and made it really easy to get oriented with Things. I LOVE the design! For me, it's intuitive and easy to use. I've tried many different to-do apps and Things seems to get the layout right. So far, i think it is worth the purchase. I'd recommend it!


Still disappointing  uinazi  2 star

The more you try to with it the more difficult it becomes to use effectively. Probably really good for very simple needs but for those the cost is too high.


Wow  jasontoheal  5 star

This seems to have everything I’m looking for. And I’m not put off by the high prices on the Mac or iPad apps either. They tell me this developer might keep working on the app. Great work to those behind this app. Works better than apple’s built in apps.


So far so good  Micha_11  5 star

A couple of hours in and I am loving it! Easy to use and intuitive. The tutorial was great. I love being able to see items from my to-dos and my calendar together - that's brilliant for me. Also love the repeat function, and the tags, which are really easy to manage and edit. Come to think of it, everything is quick and easy to do.


Love it. BUT badge app icon not working  L2PGod  5 star

When using the Widget to tick tasks (when completed) badge app icon is not being updated. Only after the application is re opened does the badge app icon update. I have tried this with the application closed and open. These 2 methods result in the same outcome as stated above. Can confirm I have: Background Refresh is on** All notifications enabled Siri Search enabled Mobile Data on Calendars access Reminders access PS The user interface and customisability is of the highest quality I have seen. I honestly would of paid double the price :D

Bridge is

The BEST!  Bridge is  5 star

I love this app! I have only been using it for one week and I've found it to be so helpful. I have downloaded many to do apps but none seem to help me as much as this app. As much as it's a very simple app it's sufficient for me. If I don't complete the to do task it is moved onto the following days lost so I don't forget to complete it. Worth the $$$!


Highly recommended!  Steve_Aus  4 star

Visually appealing design and intuitive interface. This is a very useful app and a pleasure to use. If collaboration features were available it would be nearly perfect. 


Great iPhone app  Shoopeez  5 star

Things 3 is a fantastic upgrade from version 2 in terms of usability and UI improvements. Would like to see discounts for current customers who have already bought previous versions as I dislike paying for software then repaying for updated versions - my choice I know, but a poor model for customer retention. Anyhow, it does not detract from this outstanding app on the iPhone (note, not going to re-purchase the Mac version - way too expensive!)


Great, but needs web access!  Zyph13  5 star

Fantastic app! However, the complete lack of access outside of the Apple ecosystem is a huge hindrance for many, and a total deal breaker for some. Many of us are unavoidably stuck on Windows PCs at work, for example. Outside of Mac/IOS, there's simply no way to use Things or even view our tasks read-only. We're not expecting a Windows desktop client (fully understand that's not your development core), but a web interface and/or an API is a VERY basic requirement for a cloud based app like this, and would open Things up for purchase by many more people on many more platforms. I would be more than happy to pay extra $$$ for basic access to my tasks via the web interface, and I am certainly not alone in this. Your company could profit enormously from adding this essential feature. In all other respects, Things is a great app. Keep up the good work!

In the black

Irresistible productivity app  In the black  5 star

For some time now, I have resisted the move to Things as my go-to productivity app - but I can resist no longer. The complete redesign is exceptional. Beautifully conceived, it makes task management simple and enjoyable. The integration of the calendar into the Today view is fantastic and brings everything together seamlessly. I've been an avid Todoist user and remain a huge fan, but the UI on Things makes more sense to me and helps me be more productive. The lack of task sharing and an API (allowing other app integration) is truly frustrating. (And is probably a deal-breaker for some people) But I'm mostly a sole operator so I'm willing to forgo it, for the moment.


They got it right  GridSound  5 star

Love checklists, repeating projects (and repeating tasks in projects!), time reminders for tasks, heading groups in projects and the great new UI abilities!

Fin amt

Loving latest release  Fin amt  5 star

Fantastic improvements with latest release. In particular the now seamless ability to shuffle and reorder key tasks within each category along with pop up short cuts when postponing due dates

Best "to do" app I've ever used. Love the inbox for a brain dump.  LeRon55  5 star

Very intuitive, Learning more uses every day.


Simply beautiful...  killircollectibles  5 star

The design is so simple it's eloquent. In this case, less is more.


Back after many years  steakbeard  5 star

Best to-do app of all time. Bravo


A joy to use  huyz  5 star

Well-balanced design makes this fun to use

Thanks, Carol Ann

Best Calendar  Thanks, Carol Ann  5 star

I have tried so many apps trying to find the perfect calendar! I have found it!


Looks great works great  wixtech  5 star

The only negative I can come up with so far is that I believe the recipe for peanut butter cookies in the demo is missing at least one key ingredient - flour. Otherwise, this new version looks and performs great.


Beautiful app, well thought out  phatmann  5 star

The developers really care about making this app as great as it can be. Every detail is looked after. It works because they spent thousands of hours deliberating on how people manage their todos. And they got it right.

Mel B the OG

Great Design, User Friendly  Mel B the OG  5 star

Has everything imaginable and is super friendly!


Finally, found a killer app to organize tasks!  Cybersnyder  5 star

Love this app and the way it's laid out. My only suggestion would be to add the ability to join with others and assign tasks to each other. So in a band, I could tell Joe to finish the set list by tomorrow. Or at home, Becky needs to mow the grass on Saturday. Not only would that be a killer ability, it would drive additional sales to people that you want to share tasks with.


Perfectly simple  mybuddymichael  5 star

I've used every todo list app under the sun, including that really grand GTD one. Things is the only one that meshes with my workflow. After years of trying to *get* GTD, I've finally realized that the system just doesn't work for me. And for how I work, Things is just perfect. Given its simplicity, I wish the Mac app were a tad less pricey, but for now I get by with just the iPhone app.
