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:

Huge help  MyKimber45  5 star

I have always needed lists! Now mine can be worn on my wrist on my Apple Watch. This is the best app I’ve used for a number of reasons. It’s easy to use, very user friendly. It has accountability. I can share my lists with others. I can prioritize. I’m a fan!

Just As Good As The Other To Do Apps  awayne1756  3 star

Give it to them - the marketing message on the App Store is well formulated, but when it comes down to it the functionality doesn’t justify the high price tag. If there was a deeper integration with the native iPhone calendar (e.g. slot a to do into a calendar event and schedule the precise time or to turn an email follow-up into a to do) I may think about it a bit differently. There is so much more that could be done including integration with the likes of Outlook or Gmail email apps. If you are a very simple to do list user and would like to group tasks by category, set general reminders then use the Reminders app on the iPhone or find a free / low-cost to do app. The price for this app simply is not justifiable.

The most beautiful task manager I have ever used 👍


Things is boring - also NO response from Customer Service  ihaveqs2  1 star

IF you have any issues, they will NOT respond to you. Usually, they ignore you. If they do respond to you, they will tell you they will put your name on a list, but they NEVER get back to you. This app is BORING!!! Also, what’s with all of the boring white?!? Why not be able to CUSTOMIZE the color scheme?? Also, this app’s headquarters is is Germany - which probably explains a lot of the reason why you just get ignored, and are unable to get any help. Please do not waste your money on this app. You will just be flushing your $10 away....


Enjoy but...  Adriantlewis  4 star

Wish the font was a little bigger in the weekly schedule section, I feel like I have strain to see the schedule. Also, when I pasted a phone number along side a to do such as someone to call at a certain time I expected to be able to touch it and have call from the app itself. These things would be nice!!! Thanks!


Maybe the best  Se7enjewels  5 star

Loving it so far, what separates this one from many of the other popular to do lists is the “project” piece. With others, projects seem to just be folders. With Things 3, projects. An actually be created for projects with end dates and the entire project can be checked off. Huge difference in my opinion.

Things and stuff  Manic Bobo  5 star

Three grandkids couple of care kids and more schedules with house work and household than a calendar can keep up with. I thought retirement would slow my world down...Nahhhh. I was running 4 different to do apps and 3 different lists trying to keep everything running smoothly, because none of them handled it all. I put off buying things for a long time even though I kept looking at it. Now I wonder WHY did I wait? It’s amazing how simple it is to run any number of schedules, lists, todos, and the “logbook” saves everything I’ve done so I know. There’s a learning curve, and some isn’t totally intuitive, but once you figure it all out it becomes indispensable. I spent more on all the other apps I tried & discarded than I spent on this, and it really clears up my cluttered main screen.


Great  Bucketoftruth  5 star

Would love to be able to underline and bold in notes. Only suggestions.


Yep.  Yuff  5 star

Even before winning the design award, I knew Things was the best todo app I had never used. I avoided it for a while because of the price tag, but ultimately caved and... yeah, it’s worth it. The experience just oozes polish. Frankly, it’s probably one of the best apps on the store solely because of its integrity as a piece of art—er, software. It doesn’t check every box I have for a todo list app, but that’s kind of irrelevant to this review. An absolute delight.


Fantastic App, system pricing a bit off  ANXIETYHANGOVER  5 star

I think Things 3 is incredible. It is a wonderfully designed piece of software. I just feel the Mac component is too expensive, it’s certainly out of pricing range for me. As much as I would love to have it, i cannot afford to pay 3x what the iPhone app costs. Perhaps its more a testament to how good value things 3 for iPhone is? Either way I cannot recommend things 3 highly enough, it is really a hallmark for good iOS software.


Annoying bug  Forestspirit101  4 star

Black screen for a second when swiping left to right to go back to menu side bar on iPhone 7

Vic Charlie Lou Design

Things has really helped me organise my day  Vic Charlie Lou Design  5 star

I have a busy life with 2 teenagers a job and a hobby business so having Things in my life to enhance my organisation skills has been really sucessful. I particularly like the movability of each task, the ability to see all comoleted tasks to check just incase i cant remember and the ability to send tasks on to each family member so they can add to it or plan their day around the family priorities.


Great app. Beauty in it’s simplicity.  h0psing  4 star

It’s just a cleanly designed app that’s easy to use.


Where have you been all my life  Shellfitzy1  5 star

What a fabulous life/home/office management/organiser tool. I’m so impressed and using it to its best capacity and thinking I’ll ditch the hand written diary for good. It talks to all my devices and I’m in love so far. Awesome app 😊👌🏻

Poor support and price planning  Arthur Kazemi  1 star

I’ve been using Things 2 for awhile and I’m wondering there is no support for Things 2 it doesn’t look nice in iPhoneX and there is no upgrade plan! You’ll have to buy the new version for full price. And when you buy on one device you’ll have to buy on all other devices otherwise you won’t be able to keep them synced!!! iPad version sold separately!!! Without having more features! It makes sense to sell the mac version separately as it is a different source and binary but for the iPad! It’s same binary or at least it can be! iPad version costs you twice an iPhone version!!! Why?! I’m totally disappointed and looking to find another app out there!

Bridge is

The BEST!  Bridge is  5 star

I love this app! I have been using it for Two months now. 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 $$$!


Brilliant  JDJD27  5 star

Best to do app. have been using it for years and new version doesn't dissappint


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.


Fascinating Take on Task Management  dknopoff  4 star

Things is a beautiful app with an interesting take on task management. It ended up being one that works very well for me! I just wish you could import markdown todos. That make Things an absolutely essential for my workflows.

Doug Burroughs

Back to Things  Doug Burroughs  5 star

When I first left the world of paper only task and calendar management (former Day-Timer and then Franklin Covey user for 20+ years), I kept searching for the “time management holy grail” that would replace my paper planner. I started with Things and then Things 2.0 but kept hearing that it wasn’t being supported (unfounded rumors). I wandered to other programs such as Todoist (not a fan of karma), Wunderlist, etc. Then, I saw a video of Things 3. Elegant design, intuitive features, the ability to put notes right on the task or the project caught my attention and imagination again. The ability to shape the interface of projects to my areas of responsibility was a real plus. I think in roles and responsibilities and to access projects that way is a real bonus. The synch is almost immediate and very reliable. Kudos to the creators who went underground and hammered out an elegant piece of software that is now, coupled with iCal and Evernote, my big three! Note: if you could add photos, files and pdf.s to it, this would be amazing!


Premium app that keeps crashing  Evils  1 star

I really want to love this app, but from a premium app that I paid three times for (iPhone, iPad and macOS) I expect an app that stops crashinf. Yet, the app keeps crashing on wake up for over a month already. Sad.


Animations  vntoniomendozv  5 star

I love using this app. It’s easy to use, the gestures are fun and make navigating the app quick and easy. However, I’ve noticed on my iPhone X the animations are a bit jerky, please correct this in a future update.


Just what I needed!  Kafree99  5 star

This app has helped me so much. As an adult with ADHD I struggle with keeping up with everything I need to do on a daily basis. This app allows me to keep an eye on what my focus should be for any given time. The way it integrates my calendar with my to do lists and lets me add reminders is wonderful. Give it a try!

Jonnny B

I depend on Things daily!  Jonnny B  5 star

What a great app! You need to go through the tutorial because you will find TONS of intuitive new features in THINGS 3.0 that you will use all the time!! I wish I’d done it sooner! I love this app.


Great to do app  yomoxie  5 star

I have test a variety of to do apps.But,Things is my favorite.The UI design is beautiful and easy to use.But hope can precise a ‘To do’ to time.In order to help me organize things more precisely.


Supreme Improvement  wlh2  4 star

*after few months, its still a vast improvement. But I've also trialed OmniFocus during this time and think (suggestion box!) Things could really use the addition of adding a photo to a task. Its one major improvement that would help my way of using a task app out. Omni is better in this regard, things design is just so great though. ———-//— old review I grew to despise Things 2. This version is an absolute improvement to that P.O.S. that was v2. Things 2 had some great features, but was also super lacking and seemingly never updated with features that users requested. This new version appears to rectify some major shortcomings I thought Things 2 had. I give 4 star for now, as I am adjusting to it from my hobbled together mix of reminders, calendars, notes, and evernote.

Change lists, hide. Collapse areas function

Saad Hagras

Overrated!!!  Saad Hagras  1 star

I am REALLY surprised with this overrated App. The App is POORLY FUNCTIONING and I gave it two stars because it has nice Apple Watch complication. The App lacks: 1- no time frame 2- no list or smart list 3- no password Nothing, if it does not gave the Apple Watch complication, I would consider it, one of the worst App.
