jwech - The Essential To Do App
Instead of boosting my productivity, my previous task management app had so many customization options that it actually ate away at my time. It became a procrastination tool. I could spend an hour entering dates, setting up filters, and customizing views only to realize at the end of that time that I hadn’t actually gotten anything done. In contrast, Things 3 is wonderfully simple and clarifying. It’s as powerful as my previous app, but it strips out all the distractions and the fussiness, leaving pure, easy-to-access essentials: tagging, scheduling & project organizing. The scheduling feature has been the real game changer for me. The app tracks due dates (if you have them) but—more importantly— you can also add a schedule date for each task. The interface makes it very easy to add, move, & view tasks in the schedule (while keeping due dates fixed). So you can plan your time (and easily rearrange that plan as needed). If you’re a GTD person, you can still use that methodology with Things 3 projects & tags. But I find that I do better by adding the accountability of a scheduled list of things that I want to get done on a particular day or in a particular week. Things 3 helps me organize and manage that schedule better than anything else I’ve found. And it gives me the powerhouse organization tool I need without sucking me down a rabbit hole of customization options.
bkgadam - Dream come True
I am one of those who seldom spare time to write reviews. By the way in the 7+ years I have been an Apple products consumer, this is probably the third time at most I am writing a review for an App.
I have dreamed for an app like this one many years before. I used to scan the App Store to download top rated apps, but I could never find the type of app I was looking for. They just weren’t practical. For instance sometimes you want to write down something that just popped in your head. You don’t want to worry about figuring out then if it’s a reminder or a To-do or just a note. You don’t want to worry about setting it for a specific day and a specific time. You just want to quickly jot it down in your To-dos/ reminder/ notes and be able to easily access it and take care of details later.
I had given up on my hope of finding an app that would solve this type issue. So for the past few years, I had just been relying on the iOS default note app.
I have been using this app now for a few months and it has everything I have ever dreamed of in a To-do/ reminder app. Honestly I am beyond satisfied. I have now found “the piece of resistance of my existence”!!
R33d79 - Almost perfect, solid, worth the money
I have used a lot of task management apps and I still think that many of them are great. Swipes was one of my favorites because I can snooze tasks for later, but Things has a unique approach to that same need that is actually simpler and much more effective. I’ve had to adjust some of my own habits to adapt to how Things is organized, but wow is it well thought out. It is deceptively simple at first glance, but it is so well designed that I’m constantly finding new uses and applications. My wife loves it too and she’s very picky and often doesn’t take to the things that I recommend. So the fact that both of us find it useful is a testament to the quality of the product. I’m hesitant to buy the desktop app because I think it’s fairly overpriced, I did do the free trial though and it is well-made. I was a little hesitant about the price of the mobile app as well, but after using it, I think that it is well worth the money and I wouldn’t say that about a lot of $10 apps.
rockiesmith - What on earth were they thinking?
This would have been a nearly perfect app for its purpose except for one colossally stupid design decision that users have been complaining about for over 4 years with no movement at all from the developers to correct the problem (and yet the geniuses at Apple made it an editors choice). For many of us our lives are filled with tasks that should be done not any further in the future than a certain number of days after the task has been completed. But most of the world tries to complete at least some of our tasks before that next date. We need tasks to repeat (for example) a certain number of days after we did the thing, not a certain number of days after the originally scheduled time. Things 3 has no way to mark such a task complete until the next time some stupid template regenerates at some future date that is no longer useful to you. And they have been told this for years with no attempt whatsoever to fix the problem. Things 3 is otherwise basically perfect but this brain dead refusal to fix the inability to handle one of the most common events in all of task management renders it completely and utterly useless in my life. But nobody has cared with regard to the numerous requests for this to be fixed that are scattered all over the Internet. What on earth were they thinking?
JakkDiddly - Sadly, this won’t quite do it for me
This is a beautiful app and I love how it approaches tasks and projects which is why I give it 3 stars instead of less. But there isn’t enough functional integration with calendar to make this useful for me. I can see my calendar items but can’t open them or do anything with them which leaves me to have to jump to another app to work with meeting invites and other calendar items. This is a fatal flaw with this app for me, sadly.
I’ve been on Informant Pro for years since that app integrates calendar and tasks so well. But have been trying to find something else that is more elegant and simpler. I thought this was going to be it until I discovered how severely limited it is with respect to calendar. Oh well, the search continues, and another $10 down the drain.
Edit: I’ve come back again to Things 3 because it seems that I’ve become sort of hooked on how extraordinarily well it handles tasks. I’ve decided to try to live with using a separate calendar app along with Things and see how it goes. Hopefully in the future the authors will consider adding at least some ability to edit or even open calendar items in Things. Meanwhile I try this setup.
paulis 101 - Nearly perfect
I’m giving it 5 stars because it’s so functional, simple to use, and helpful. I would have liked to be able to choose a color for each category (as in todoist) because it would help me visualize my task areas more quickly. But that’s my only quibble. After experimenting with things3 and todoist I chose things3 because you can easily rearrange items within each category according to priority and identify what items in each category to make part of your today list. I use the app on my phone and find it very helpful to add items anytime they occur to me and then, over morning coffee, review the whole list (select anytime) and highlight the ones I want to do that day. I’m also very glad to have purchased this item once and for all. Todoist requires a yearly fee and I have enough of those already. I feel less overwhelmed since I bought this app. Putting tasks down in an organizable list (rather than trying to remember them) and organizing them daily really lessens stress.
Enrapture137 - Why didn’t I find this sooner?
Let me start this by saying I’m one of those people that never leave written reviews. I had to give praise where praise is due though.
First of all, I am a very visual person so even if I found an app with perfect functionality, I wouldn’t use it if I didn’t like how it looked. However, this app combines functionality with a nice sleek design that’s not only easy to look at but, easy to use. I’m SUPER picky about to-Do apps and I have been on a search for “the one” for literally years. I think I’ve found it though. They allow you to customize And organize your to-do’s in a myriad of ways. For instance, my favorite thing so far is the Ability to set “Projects” and in those projects, you can not only add notes and headings to keep the todos organized but, on the main screen of the app, there’s a small circle to show your progress on the todo’s inside. I absolutely love this app and had to let y’all know you did an amazing job.
Zeusman - Only One Day View on my Watch?!?!?
I took the plunge and paid the $9.99 for this app and immediately regretted my purchase. Wanted a to-do app that would sit in my complication area of my Apple Watch that Uses Siri to enter to-do’s. Che k, it does that but.....and a big but...it sends the to-do to an “In Box” on the app on my iPhone. I did see that I change from In Box to Today but it’s not easy to switch between them on my phone as the lettering is tiny (smaller than other words and sitting just above the task-that’s too easy to tap). Then you have to go to your phone to move it to a day, and the app asks ‘are you sure you want to move this?’ Adding another few steps and time to a simple entry...that’s self defeating. Then I CANNOT see anything beyond the current day’s to-do’s on my phone....I find that very limiting. I need to be able to scroll down to at least a week’s worth of to-dos. So I can PLAN for those events before that day...not a far fetched idea. This app could be useful but at the moment( in my opinion) this app is better suited to the iPhone and NOT the Apple Watch. I wish I could get my money back on this one. Doesn’t do what I need or enough for the cost.
MommyKun - Thought the app was too pricey, until I got so much stuff done.
I was looking for an app that would help me stay on task with ease. I downloaded so many task apps before but I couldn’t stay on task, I’d enter my list and just didn’t complete them. Why did I took the risk of getting this expensive app?? Was I gullible ? I guess so. But something was different, I got stuff done !! everyday every week so far. What you do is type any idea that comes up. Then you move it around to whenever you want to compete it, that’s it! But why is it so expensive for such a simple task ? I gave it 5 stars because I competed every task that I’ve been listing for 1 month now. My only suggestion is how about sharing the task with other people in household?
I just discovered that I can share the list by scrolling down so that it opens up a move task bar and clicking on the “. . .” . I’m very happy with this app and of course there’s always room for improvement.
Spellrider - Easy to use and robust
Impressive user experience design! Use is intuitive and the number of taps to perform an action seems fewer than the other more expensive apps I tried. You can pretty much figure out how to use it on your own, but they include a very nice tutorial in the form of a project with a list of to do’s. Very easy way to get up and running fast.
It has all the features that I was looking for except for location alerts. My workaround is to create a tag for my locations and just search that tag. It would be nice to get a push notification. OTOH, it seemed like having that on for an app that I tried may have been sucking battery. I’m not sure.
One slick feature is that repeating to dos have a lot of flexibility. You can even schedule them to repeat based on when you complete the task. So instead of repeating every 7 weeks, for example, the next one comes due 7 weeks after you completed the previous one. Nice.
KKorwal - Wish there were pop-up alerts
Pretty good app - I'm looking for a better solution than Reminders for iPhone, as the Reminders app is buggy and sketchy performance. This app, Things, is neat and well-arranged, with nice checkboxes to clear items from your to-do list, etc. which I appreciate. However, you have to go into the app to see what's next, with no alert pop-up anywhere that I can find. I need tasks to pop up and remind me to do this or that, sometimes at a specific time, and often more than once. Like a bill I need to pay, which I may remind myself a week before but need to wait to pay it until a few days later, so I need to have a second reminder so I don't forget.
Bills are just one example (still haven't found a good bill-pay app, either) - it could be a purchase I need to make but now I won't have time today after work, so I have to postpone until tomorrow after work. Or it may be a phone call I have to make at a specific time.
Overall, very good for keeping track of tasks, as long as you remember to look at it.
nrohrer - 😍 Only 1 Thing Missing
I am smitten with this app. I used to get by with a paper planner, then switched to Todoist last year, but I hated that there was really no way to see upcoming tasks beyond a week. Things has solved that problem for me (and then some!) — no more worrying about an annual subscription, waaaay better integration with Apple Watch and my calendar (thank goodness), and a simpler, cleaner interface that allows me to organize everything from daily tasks to vacation ideas and workout plans. The price seemed a little steep at first, especially since it wasn’t easy to try out the app before I bought it, but it was worth every penny.
Now, the only thing I’m missing is a way to track daily habits. I end up with a ton of to dos every day, which is a pain, because I just want a separate part of the platform that allows me to track that stuff. I’ve tried Streaks but would really like to have all these features in one place.
izkatel - Finally!
I first used Things years ago to GTD. After I discovered Wunderlist, I switched and loved the flexibility and the plethora of features it offered. Few years ago, a tragedy took place and Wunderlist fell victim to Microsoft who bought out and stopped updating the app. It then went off to attempt its own version of Wunderlist, only to release an underdeveloped, underperforming iteration that's probably doomed for the lack of user interest. To make a long story short, I was forced to find a replacement for my beloved Wunderlist (RIP). I searched high and low only to return to Things 3. I'm happy to acknowledge that it evolved into a prince, matching and at times surpassing Wunderlist. Things 3 is more elegant and user friendly then any other app I've tried. I'm happy to be home again. My dream is for Apple to recognize the value of Things 3 and purchase it. Only then can we be assured that this magnificent product will survive indefinitely. Apple, are you listening?!
Impressed with Free Version - Everything I need and more
As an adult mom with ADHD I struggle to stay organized, keep track of tasks, and easily record important to-dos in an accessible location. The integration this app manages (between watch and phone) is seamless, and gives me a convenient and powerful way to keep track of many ongoing lists, routine tasks, and one-off tasks. I initially balked at the price but this app but its the best money I’ve ever spent on an organizational tool (that’s saying something considering the many bullet journals, planners, tracking systems, etc. that I’ve had false starts with). The tips and hints w/in the app are great, and the app itself does everything I could hope for. If you’re looking for motivational sayings and cute cartoons, this isn’t the app for you. If you’re looking for a way to stay on track and record things as they come to mind- and in a place that you won’t forget about- then I can’t recommend a better tool.
Zap B. - Really well done
This app has a lot of great functionality for managing tasks and projects. The interface is super clean and efficient. The flow for bringing a task or project through inception to completion is very intuitive and works well.
The only thing I would raise is the way the app assumes you are a go-getter who will knock out tasks in a proactive manner. For slackers, procrastinators, and anxiety sufferers like myself it is not very good at nagging and popping up. You have to actively pay attention to the stuff in the app. I would like to see a slider that lets you set the level of app awareness of your ability to complete tasks. So you can make it nag you more if you want it to. That way you can decide if the app is more proactive in bringing tasks in front of your eyes to make sure you don’t just set them and forget them.
But I would still recommend this app all the way.
-jon- - Nearly perfect iOS app
I used ToDo on the iPhone with Toodledo on the web for years, and I was quite happy with it. However when I tried to update ToDo, as it was increasingly buggy, to ToDo Cloud, the install failed and I started looking around. And I am glad I did. I looked at many reviews and decided to give Things 3 a try.
The tutorial is well done, and in 15 minutes I was fully up to speed. I then reentered about 100 tasks, although I could have imported them. I have to state that the interface is a joy to work with, and the final result was amazing.
Read the reviews for product details, but this app defines what is great about iOS. Clean, intuitive and fun. The integration with the calendar, in particular, is brilliant.
After getting it set up on the iPhone, I purchased the iPad app. Perfect integration and interface!
My only quibbles... When I set an Inbox item to Today, and then I do not complete the task and clear the date, the task ends up in the Anytime folder. I think it should go back to the Inbox. This is by design, and I have a workaround, but it is mildly annoying. Also, I would like to not display the Anytime folder, as I do not need it, but this is not customizable. I could use the real estate for another area or project. But these are minor details. This is one of the best apps for iOS. Period.
yapishkahilt - Great app with one layout oddity
Very much enjoying the app. One design issue has repeatedly caused issues for me, though: when setting a reminder, after selecting the time, you’d think the way to save it is to hit the huge button immediately below where the time is set. Instead, that big button is to *clear* the reminder, while keeping the reminder requires you to click on a small “Done” button in the top right of the entire to-do. You’d think they’d make it quicker to save the reminder by clicking immediately below it on a big button, and make it more difficult to clear a reminder you just set with a small button at the top. Obviously a nit pick, but given how often i have to redo reminders bc of following the instinct to click on the big button just below the time setting area, it’s getting a little old.
Duh reader - Enjoying it so far, great design
Lives up to the idea that a product is perfect not when there is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take away. In this case, taking away is more about how things hides all unnecessary distractions away from the user to make the app experience both easy and comfortable. There's plenty of functionality built in though, it's just not all up in your face.
My only gripe, which I might even change my mind on anyway, is that there isn't a way to speed add tasks (having the cursor jump back up to the input field after you hit enter). So far this seems like not a big issue, and I actually kinda like that feature being gone because it slows you down as a user and requires you to be a bit more mindful and intentional with your plans.
Great app 👍
ArtAddictedArchitect - Not a Project app- wish it had more
For starters I’ve been combing through the internet in an effort to find a good project app that didn’t cost an arm & a leg while seamlessly integrating with iOS since it’s all my family owns.
After hearing great things about Things 3 I’ve given it a shot for a few days.
There are some definite upsides and things I like. Dark mode, the ability to rapidly make reminders and set to-do’s, importing from shared calendars and all that jazz.
The ability to set things for “someday” or “this evening” when I’m in the middle of the day is extremely useful and takes a lot of stress out being hurried by tasks.
But there’s no ability to link pictures or do sketches like in the Notes app
It’s taken from what I assumed to be a project app into a simple (yet extremely effective) to do list
Don’t get me wrong, if you’re looking for something to gently prod and remind you about things to do— such as to clean out the basement, or grab things before work, this is the app for you.
But if you want an app that could keep track of what’s broken in the basement and needs to be replaced, or if that dryer you fixed 3 months and 4 days ago is making noises again look elsewhere.
I really do hope Things 3 gets those updates soon— even a simplistic port of the sketchbook in apple Notes native app would be a game changer
Dr. L. - Nearly Perfect
Love the ability to drag and drop tasks as my priorities change throughout the day. So much simpler than constantly having to reset priorities. Also love being able to see my appointments and tasks all in the same view so that I can better manage my day.
There are just a few features I'd like to see in future versions - a month view showing appointments and tasks for each day; the ability to create and edit events from within Things rather than having to switch to another app; the ability to swipe from day to day rather than having to leave the Today view and navigate to the Upcoming view; the ability to see the next Action in each project in the Today view so you don't have to do back and forth between Today and Projects.
If screen real estate is an issue, it strikes me that the Inbox, Anytime and Someday are duplicative.
tiddlywinks7 - From productive to Superman
I was skeptical about buying an app that is essentially a to-do list, but I found myself at the point that I needed a better “system.” The free productivity app selection was lacking though. I took a chance on Things and I’m very glad I did! It took from productive to Superman! Seriously. It’s immensely helpful.
My only comment to the developers would be to add a feature that allows users to preset a list of common to-do’s (similar to how users define their own tags). So when you’re adding a to-do you could quickly drop in a common task that is frequent but that is not repeated on the calendar at specific times (for things like doing the dishes for example). That would save me from recreating the same to-do over and over again.
Thanks for the development tho! Great job!! 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼
Bobbybob32134282 - Soooo much better than the reminders app
They didn’t even ask me for a review, I felt compelled because it’s just a great app. This app makes organizing literally any personal project, ongoing or one-time, very easy. It’s simple yet customizable if/when/where I need. I have one “project” as a shopping list and one as a to-do list. Every time I think “wouldn’t it be great if this app did X”, X is always there and easy to do. Like the ability to repeat tasks on a custom interval, specifying whether that interval is regularly repeating or measured from the time of last completion. The latter is the default, which is usually good if you don’t care... but if you do care, the option is there, and it’s easy to do. It’s just little stuff like that. Take it from a software developer, getting those little things right is not easy
Jay Shmay - Fantastic way to organize big projects or daily tasks
The title says it all, this app is great. It allows you to create projects, repeating events, and organize them all either by date or by the area of life they relate to. Sounds complicated but the user interface is excellent and they provide a tutorial as well to make all the app has to offer as easy to utilize as possible. I love this app and practically depend on it to stay organized and on top of projects while also on track with daily tasks like working out and finishing work. It has amazing support for the Apple Watch, and many of its important functions can be used on the Apple Watch or simply by asking Siri. I can’t say enough great things about this app and I am grateful to the creators of it for giving the world such a wonderful and useful application.
D-dirty - Disappointing to a long time Things 2 user
I’ve used Things 2 for many years and finally took the plunge and purchased Things 3 because of its ability to integrate with Calendars.
I have to say- I’m very disappointed.
1. The Today view in Things 3 now looks like a big cluttered mess because To-Do’s in different areas aren’t divided off into different sections. You can’t even change the font color. So, things I need to do at work and things I need to do at home aren’t easily and quickly visually distinguishable when looking at my day. This is a big set back from Things 2.
2. There’s a nice new feature to move To-Dos to “This Evening.” But, after the end of the day, things that were scheduled for evening, move back to the same cluttered mess with all the other to-do’s. I’d really like to see an upgrade that allows scheduled recurring to dos to be created under the “this evening” heading. For example, I always go to the gym at night. I’d like that reminder to appear there rather than have to move it every day.
1. The calendar integration is very well done
2. The ability to set alerts/alarms within a to-do is great. Previously in Things 2, I was unable to do this
If you really like Things 2 and aren’t sure whether or not to pay $10, don’t do it. I’m going back to Things 2 unless they update this app with some options to change the appearance of different Areas and fix some other bugs.
iPhone6DK - I have used them all...
Things 3 is light years better than 2Do, Wunderlist, Trello, Tasker, Do It Tomorrow, etc. It may not have quite as many features as 2Do, and it may be more expensive than the free versions of Wunderlist, but it is flawless. The user interface is clean, well thought out, flexible and EASY TO USE. It feels fast and snappy when in use. I will say that my productivity has at least DOUBLED since I am now cranking through tasks instead of being frustrated by my system of organization. Other
people have mentioned the amount of time that it took for Things 3 to come out, but I can only assume it is because of how well executed it was/is. Don’t hesitate to buy this app. I got it for my iPhone and iPad and think it is worth every dollar. I will be getting the MacBook version next.
jellogiraffe - Organized my Depression
I know: it’s expensive, but I recommend this to everyone I know. It’s simple, customizable, you can make subcategories, group things up, put descriptions or steps, put deadlines, events, recurring tasks. Just in my experience, I can say it’s great for cooking, planning weddings, school projects, spring cleaning, moving, and even all of those at once. It sounds ridiculous, but this app straight up cured my depression. There were many times I couldn’t do a lot of every day tasks. This app let me see my progress, set more goals, and somehow taught me motivation. I’ve had this app for years and can say this is the life-changing organizing app that everyone needs no matter what age or where you are in life. People set all kinds of goals for themselves, and this app covers EVERYTHING and ANYTHING.
JohnathonSullinger - Needs a web app
I love the app and want to use it, but can't without a web app or Windows app. I spend 8 hours a day on a Windows Surface. The Surface goes with me into meetings, as mobile devices aren't allowed on the corporate Network, so I take all my notes on the Surface. It's a real pain to then create tasks in Things after the meeting by re-typing the action items into my phone.
With a web app I could at least enter my tasks on the Surface while in the meeting. 80% of my tasks are work related, in a Windows Enterprise, while all my personal device's are all iOS/Mac. I'm stuck using Todoist until something better comes along with web support or Windows client.
Things is a great app if you are 100% iOS/macOS. Probably the best iOS/macOS task app out there to be honest. If you need to interoperate with any other OS, there's no Web app so you're out of luck.
sh02143 - Elegant, useful To Do app
This app has exactly what is needed for an efficient, useful, and seamless To Do app. I read a review complaining about certain things it lacks; to me those are all of the useless bells and whistles that clutter up other similar apps while adding nothing in terms of my needs. Things has clearly been very well thought through. It’s exactly the app I needed for keeping track of personal and work tasks, recurring tasks, jotting down ideas, etc. The $10 price tag is completely worth it, especially since there is no monthly fee. (My previous app—which I had paid for—updated automatically, and sudden I couldn’t use it anymore without paying $6/month). I haven’t used Things for very long, but I am already a very loyal customer.
keveret43 - Beautifully designed but..
This is by far the most beautifully designed app I’ve ever used to manage my to-do-lists without sacrificing functionality. The feature I find most helpful is the ‘Upcoming’ tab where you can set up the app to pull data from all your calendars and list them chronologically in a compact color-coded format. I would have given the app 5 stars if the Upcoming tab listed ALL the future month’s tasks. Unfortunately, as of now, the Upcoming tab only lists the first 14 tasks/items which makes this app unusable and pointless to look at usually after the first week of the future month in my case. There is not even a way to expand the list to see the rest of your tasks beyond item # 14 when you are in the Upcoming tab, which is probably a bug. I would have given this app 4 stars if it was closer to the usual $3-4 price range but for around $9 I expected much more.
tomd181 - Things is amazing
I have issues with short-term memory, so I need help staying on track. I have tried so many apps, and Things is by far the best for me. It has been particularly helpful in the normal recurring tasks throughout my week, much better than relying on my calendar app. It is very easy to create a task and set it for a date in the future with a custom repeat. Having Things as a complication on my Watch helps me to actually do the stuff I agreed to do!
I could not get my Apple Watch to work as described, so I asked for help. It turned out I was doing it wrong, but Mick and Julia in Support were very patient with me, explaining and reviewing how it worked until I got it. I have Things on both my iPad and iPhone, and have given it as a gift. I recommend it very highly.
FM_M - Love the new version
Been a Things user since way back in the mists of time; Things 3 brings clarity and freshness back to how clear Things felt at 1.0 (when iOS was heavy and my list of Things was still small). Well done!
Honest: just yesterday, I wrote a review asking for collapsible Areas, and today they roll out the feature. Talk about responsive developers! (Obviously, kidding; I’m sure that took a lot of thought and work: thank you!) The implementation of hiding Areas is great; the modification to the icon in collapsed state, and the animation in and out of it, are perfect. (I do wish on Mac I could option-open or option-close to open or close all.)
I’d love to also see headings in Areas, and Undo everywhere. Maybe support for Shake to Undo? I'm not a huge fan of shaking my phone around in the air like a lunatic, so I suppose the method is less important than the result, but some universal method for Undo is really needed; I’ve had a few errant taps that deleted or moved something I didn’t mean to, and the time to try to remember what that was and fix it is just lost time. Please? Undo?
Overall, excellent app, refinements just keep making it better. Yay!
chic reveiw - Over Hyped
For what this app does, I really think it’s over priced and over hyped. It has some nice features like I can see my today list on my apple watch. It does what it says but its not really more than a simple list todo app. I really wish there was a calendar view. Like in ‘Upcoming’, if you could tap the calendar icon and actually see a calendar. There’s no way to see details more than a week in advance. So if you like to plan out your month, this isn’t the app for you. Also, when I am scheduling a repeating task on a specific day for the next week, the app doesn’t recognize the day. It always wants to repeat on Wednesday and I have to change it. Its minor, yes, but still annoying. Same thing with repeating a monthly task. It doesn’t recognize the date and I have to manually put it in. Honestly, I regret buying it. There are cheaper and better options on the app store.
R91240sx - Pretty Good
Update: love that the notifications don’t disappear even when phone turns off. Thumbs up for that. Because if I miss notification or something happens. It stays until I proceed do some sort of action. Even if I open app notifications don’t disappear like other apps. Very happy just wish scheduling a reminder was a bit easier.
Great App. Think it’s a bit confusing on how to make reminders especially when doing it for a year from now. But it seems reliable only wish it wud have an option for those that would like a nag reminder bcuz we all can not here the reminders go off f we are busy. Would like to see the option to change reminder alert & snooze options like Sorted 3. I do think it should have a better pop calendar view for easier choosing but I recommend the app highly
Squatch91 - Almost...
Overall this app is highly flexible without being overly complex. As I’ve been capturing my tasks, I’ve noticed a couple oddities and omissions though.
Two things I’d like to see in future iterations are the ability to collapse a section header that has content tasks in it, and perhaps see a progress indicator or count of complete vs open tasks in that group... I use those for phases of projects so tracking completeness is helpful there...
The feature I’m really looking for is setting a due date (as opposed to assigning a date to the todo items and ending up with a bunch of past due items). Maybe an accomplish view like the upcoming that breaks things down into sections like today, this week, this month, eventually, etc. sometimes things are so nebulous in my to do life just knowing what I have to accomplish and what’s immediately important in a week is super helpful.
Jack of Aces - Great app BUT...
I’ve been looking for a good todo list app for a while now. After searching and researching, I have come to you all. I am happy about that and will use the app!
An $80 buy-in to use across platforms?! That is steep. It’s more than most video games and more than a tank of gas for most vehicles! The easy thing to say is that you don’t have to buy it on all platforms, to which I say you are right, but for productivity’s sake it shouldn’t be that difficult to enter in.
So two things:
1) Lower the cost of entry. I understand making the app for different platforms takes time but the iOS (and future iPad OS) should be made to work with both iPhone and iPad WITHOUT paying $30. I understand the work and coding needed for the macOS app. But maybe up the app to $15 or $20 and allow it to work both on iPhone and iPad WITHOUT SEPARATE PURCHASE.
2) Location-specific/Geofence Tasks. This is amazing and the one thing that you app doesn’t do compared to both the Reminders app and my current todo app of choice: 2Do. Being able to do this would be appreciated and work well as a reminder for those that travel to separate work environments with separate tasks at each. It'd help with keeping "things" in line. (see what I did there?)
Overall a great app. I believe these tweaks will help though.
Scotteeboy - Great app but for me, missing connectivity
There’s no doubt that Things is an amazing application and well thought out. For my workflow, I’d really like the ability to work on tasks with others. Currently, you can only send a list. You can’t collaborate. Also. I love the “evening” feature BUT you can’t include it with your repeatable todos. So each day that I have to manually assign my evening todo to the “evening” category. This should get fixed. Another suggestion: be able to use natural language in the main section of the todo. Currently you have to first select the calendar picker to do this. And, while on the subject of the calendar picker- let’s have a “tomorrow” button in addition to the others.
Now, those are my suggestions, but there are many, many things that are great in this app. Hopefully some of my other wants will be included in a future release.
fishmat - The last time I’ll switch to-do list apps
If you find yourself switching between personal to-do list apps often because nothing feels “quite right”, you should try Things 3. It has completely replaced and simplified my Trello process, which I had relied on religiously for the last two years, but never felt perfect. Things keeps me focused on what I want to be focused on while integrating with my behemoth catch-all list, but without overwhelming me like looking at all my Trello cards did. Seamless integration with iCal calendars was not something I was looking for, but now wouldn’t want to live without. I would spend 10x what I paid for this app, it’s that spot-on in terms of flexibility and reliability.
Mr. Ekted - Big Things missing.
It’s good. Pretty. But, just good. No collaboration. None. You can share your things with people and it sends it in a big text. They also offer a sync option, that is free (for now), and if you wanna collabo, then you have to sign in to the same account on two devices. That is super lame and I know that things knows this, cause why else would you offer this weird sync thing for things?
I really do like paying up front for an app. This is a good model. I am going to keep things installed and I will keep adding to this weird list thing that doesn’t seem to be helping me with planning out my giant honey-do list and collaborating on it with my amazing wife. I’m trying to bring her in on this thing, things. It’s just not working though. Maybe I’m using the wrong app for my needs and I get that. This app is pretty tho. Like reallly pretty. I just want to find it as useful as it is pretty.
Crossing my fingers for some serious rethinkin’ on collaboration. 🤞🏼
Edit - while I still have things installed, I’m not really using it anymore. I am using Todoist (free version) and am able to collaborate with my incredible and awesome wife. I’m still holding out hope for things cause I’m pretty sure I’d pick it over Todoist if it had collabo. Exporting your things from things into other apps is a nightmare btw. I’m starting to wonder what things is for besides looking nice.
Dave Millions - Good, but could be great.
I’ve been through most todo apps. I downloaded this, tried it for a week, then had to switch back to 2Do. The app is missing crucial elements like the ability to set repeating reminders outside of numbered time frames. For example, you can repeat every x days, weeks, months, etc but not, say, every Tuesday and Thursday every 2 weeks. It also has no location based reminders, which the developers don’t seem to provide good reason for. Finally: there are no reasonable ways to attach things or url extensions easily. Even adding basic support to link a contact later so you can make a reminder like “text Steve later” and have that launch messages is something other apps can do. Overall it is a beautifully designed app, but until it’s functions match 2Do I can’t justify purchasing any more of the suite.
Dave2KLI - First impressions of Things 3
Bought the Things desktop, iPad and IPhone apps today. Was able to login to things cloud to get my Things 2 data imported and deleted the old applications.
Trying to use Things 3 on The iPhone is unbearable when the calendar view is enabled. It takes 10 seconds after you launch the application for anything to show on the screen. After that, it took an average of 73 seconds for the app to be usable. The screen was frozen, I couldn’t add, change or mark items completed. I couldn’t scroll down on my list of things to do until the calendar came up.
Trying to navigate back from the Today category to other categories took over a minute and then navigating back to the today category took over three and a half minutes to populate the today list again and even then it wouldn’t scroll with finger movements without hanging.
Disabling the calendar view fixed the speed issues, but leaves a dialogue box on the today screen asking you to allow Things to access the calendar. Would recommend that they have that option configurable to remove the dialogue box and put that in the settings.
I haven’t had time to test the iPad app or the desktop app yet but my initial impressions are that Things 3 iPhone app needs more work.
Ally Ullenius - Love it… Just one thing
I love this app so much. It keeps me very organized and one you get the hang of how it works everything is very simple. I’ve been using it on my phone and Apple Watch for a few months and there is only one complaint I have. I know the version for Apple Watch is very new but I really wish that you could add a to do using the scribble feature instead of dictation. I would love to use this to keep track of my assignments when I am in class but the dictation feature is not ideal for that seeming as it isn’t exactly acceptable to talk to your wrist in the middle of a lesson. Anyways I hope to see this feature in further updates but for now I am still very satisfied.
pittsburgh_chick - I like the simplicity
It’s a great app to get things done without being bogged down with too much complexity. I like the clean interface. A good app to plan your day shouldn’t take more time to deal with than actually doing what’s on your list and this app delivers. Planning is important, but so is actually taking action. I always feel elated when I can check something off, it makes me feel good. With this app, I actually get to check off things and know I had a productive day. I only downloaded the iOS version to start, because there was no free trial and it’s a little pricey, but now I plan to buy the Mac version soon, regardless of the price. Nice work and thanks :).
meowsers696969 - Great app, just one suggestion!
This app is seriously life-changing. Being an adult with ADHD this really helps manage my tasks and to-dos. It takes a little time to get used to it, but once you do, it’s so easy to customize, move tasks around, change dates, etc. I love that I can get the same information on my MacBook and my iPhone so that I’m always on track.
The one thing I have not seemed to find in any app is the ability to allocate specific timeframes for each task. With this app, you can easily see tasks you need to complete for “today”, but I would love to be able to designate times for each task and receive reminders when I should be moving on to the next task. With this one change, this app would really do everything!
Juueueidkmkk'sjsissks - A bit overrated and expensive.
Expensive when you consider you need to pay separately for iPhone, iPad and osx. Most todo apps at least include all ios versions. To get this on your phone and iPad you'll end up paying $30. Why? They're the same OS. Apple watch complication also needs some work. Right now its just a shortcut to the app with no relevant information. I used Clear for many years and it is by far a simpler app without all the functionally but waaaaay more fun to use and unique. Also cheaper and takes care of all devices. Sometimes I feel like I'm spending more time creating todo lists in this app than actually getting things done. If you don't have an apple watch consider something like Google keep. Enough functionality to compete with this this app, syncing on all decices and free.
ChicagolandJim - Not functional enough to be purchased
Unfortunately I jumped into using Things without trying the free desktop version first. After spending time setting up my task management system and entering tasks I realized I was unable to check a repeating item as complete prior to the date the repeat was set as. For instance I wanted to complete the repeating items that were to come due during a two week vacation in advance so that I wouldn’t have to worry about them while on vacation but Things does not allow this to be done. I checked in with technical support and they stated they hoped to someday provide functionality for checking off repeating events prior to the day they are set to repeat on but at this time it is not possible. I paid $50 for the desktop and $10 for the app and all I can say is this program isn’t worth using and is not ready for release even though it’s been out for years. SMH.
AmirzM - Almost Perfect
I can’t stress how useful, simple, and amazing this app is for me. I have tried many, including Todoist. Things 3 blows all of them out of the water in almost every aspect. The only reason I am not giving it 5 starts is in hopes the developers add a rewards/tracking feature. The more you input/keep up with your tasks, the more you level up. I’m sure this was on the board and was likely a trade-off made for simplicity. Yet it can always be added as an option, for those that like to have this. I personally want it because it keeps me motivated. I would say that is the only thing Todoist has over Things 3.
If this feature is added, this app becomes without a question not only 5 starts, but the best of its kind.
PrjMan56 - I Like it!
An intelligent and smartly designed feature-packed GTD/ Task Mngt app that promotes productivity through simplicity-Well Done Guys! For that, this app gets a 5 for Task Mngt in my view. The total freedom and flexibility to manage and navigate inside the native app is ‘Points on the Board’. And, then being able to import emails and other Mind-Mapping Projects/Tasks directly into Things 3 as To-Do’s is a Home-Run in my book!
The Project Mngt aspect of Things however only gets a 3 rating. The addition of basic attributes needed in managing project and event-like activities to include start/finish dates for sub-tasks, dependancies, attachments option available in the notes field coupled with basic views such as Calendar, Gantt, Kanban, TimeLine etc would a value based features for those of us that benefit from the visual perspectives and situational awareness these views bring.
The above said, I’ still use Things 3 as ‘Central Station’ for integrating all my calendars and various Task app activities. That would not be my choice without the excellent design and interface Things 3 provides. Again, in that respect Things 3 gets a solid two thumbs-up.
TimmyFangs - Wonderful app!
I got Things 3 to help keep myself organized while finishing University. It is a wonderful app and very aesthetically pleasing! Well done! I am very pleased with this app! It has been easy to learn and use! Thank you!
My suggestions after a few weeks with it:
Have some integration with the Calendar app or Fantastical to generate to-do’s when you create an event in the calendar and vice-versa. Also with subscribed calendar feeds. My school automatically generated a calendar feed for us to subscribe to that shows assignment due dates. That would be awesome if Things would generate to-do’s and due dates based on that. Basically, the more integration with Calendar or Fantastical, the better!
Ipoopdometimes - Please Solve
I’ve written other reviews of this app, all positive. But there are 2 flaws in this app.
#1. The app imports what is on your apple calendar and syncs it. But there is no other information. I think it should be a “link” that opens a up a new page within the app that gives further info (like the link to a google meet)
2#. COLLABORATION. Maybe your lazy, lack of funding, too hard. Whatever. What you have created is on the brink of being PERFECT. There are not many apps that can say that. The reality is that people’s lives are connected with others, and there needs to be a way to work with a spouse, boss, etc. I think you guys are be serious contenders against the other scheduling app. But this is a must.
SueeBeeG - Beware before importing tasks
I wish there was a trial version. I paid the app fee and was getting to know the app. I thought it would sync with my Reminders app and then sync with my outlook account. Tasks I created did not end up in the outlook app. I imported tasks into Things 3 and all tasks were marked as completed in the Reminders app and subsequently my Outloon account. The dates and times of those tasks did not import in the Things 3 app. I'm now going to screenshot the imported tasks, delete this app and then redo the tasks in the Reminders app.
If I was using this app on my phone and not trying to sync with reminders and outlook, I would really like this app. I do like the upcoming view and being able to see a list of upcoming tasks and events sorted by months. It was not hard to enter a task.

Sah confused - Almost perfect but still the best
I love using this app on my Apple Watch, particularly as the large middle complication in the modular watch face because it shows up to three of your next to-do list items. I would love if this complication also showed events as well as the to-do list (e.g. if one of those three spots was reserved for the ‘next calendar event’ if you had an event/appointment for the day) as I currently find myself frequently switching back and forth between watch faces depending on how many events versus tasks I have planned for the day.
Nevertheless, this app is still the best organising app I have come across (and I have tried MANY!). If another app did integrate both events and tasks on the same Apple Watch complication, however, I would have to choose that app instead.
Milorad Ivovic - Two steps forward, one step back.
This is an amazing app, but I'm puzzled at the latest Apple Watch complication choices. Branding has been prioritised over usefulness. I'm already using the app, I don't need anyone to sell it to me.
For example, on the circular infograph complications, the big Things icon is a checkmark with a progress bar around it. Why isn't that checkmark just a number of remaining items? I already know I'm using Things.
Also the middle complication of the Infograph Modular face has gotten less useful for some reason. Now instead of a list of three items, you can only see one, and a progress bar of limited usefulness. It had more value for me to be able to see other items I can complete out of order, than it has for me to see I'm half way through for the day. I like progress bars, but I like actual information much more.
Gertiesmart - I really get things done with this app!
I’ve tried a few ToDo type apps and they are either to simple or to complicated. Things is both. You can use it in a simply basic manner or it has the structure that allows for more detailed involved planning. And I love the logbook feature to go back and look at ALL the Things you’ve done This feature is dated so if you bother to have some detail to (in some cases a mere) reminder eg ring ISP about Internet malfunction all weekend - then you effectively have a diary you can refer back to as to the date you did something. Handy if you have an ongoing issue where this info is helpful in the long term.
Definitely worth the few bucks I paid.
Fr.Improver - Solid, best app for tasks but needs additional features
Pros: (1) The 3-levels (Areas > Projects > Tasks) is why this app works and why all other apps I tried (Asana, To-Do, Wunderlist, Any-Do) were unsuitable - this app is brilliant for busy parents if you are a 'tree thinker' and break your life into 7-10 Areas x 3-10 projects per area, then 3-10 tasks per project. Example: My Child (Area) > Their Health (Project) > Checkups or Immunisations (Tasks/Reminders)(2) Awesome search feature and great to have separate 'reminder date' from 'due date'. Cons- (1) Many of us need to work on a PC (Windows) for work but there is no web-login page to manage the task list from a PC.. (2) Many couples need to share tasks (ie groceries) but there is no share feature (unlike most other task apps). Overall 3/5, still best for me but really needs these 2 features to 'nail it' and become the ultimate tasks app. Keep up the good work guys..
Skuttlebut - Love this app!!
I downloaded Things 3 a few days ago and am already loving it. Reminders I had already set have been imported from the Reminders app and were very easily sorted into ones to keep, remove or make recurring. I love that I can see my calendar in the app so that I can plan my to dos around any meetings or appointments I have. I have been able to easily create areas allowing me to keep work, home and school to dos separate, add tags to each to do so I can find them easily, set deadlines for to dos and projects and set reminders for recurring to dos. The only thing I feel is missing that I really want to be able to do is attach emails, documents and notes to a to do or project.
Thanks for creating such an easy to setup, use and navigate productivity app that will keep event the most disorganised person (me) organised!
H. Flame - So glad I found Things 3
I have tried so many to-do list apps, and I find most of them offer such a limited way to segment tasks. I deeply appreciate Things 3’s approach.
Our to-do list can be divided by different lists or sections in our lives called “Areas”. In these areas, or even outside of them, we can have tasks as well as Projects: actual Work in Progresses with a defined due date. These projects can have their own headings and tasks underneath those headings. Even more, tasks can have their own subtasks. We can even see at a glance a pie chart of our projects to see our progress.
You can even set a start date, not just a due date, for when you want your tasks to appear in your Today view.
There are some things I wish it did—I wish we could collapse headings. I also wish we could see statistics of tasks we accomplished. But for what it does, Things 3 does it extremely well. A clean, polished interface that I always come back to after giving other apps a try.
Bernd.Meyer - Elegant and efficient
After months or even years of deliberating I finally switched from Appigo Todo to Things a few weeks back. Why did I take so long? The decision took a while because I had to transfer hundreds of items manually as Appigo offers no export. Indeed, this was one of the reasons to switch, I don’t like being bound to an app.
I have never looked back. Things is brilliant. It works smoothly in the background on desktop and phone, does the job with no fuss and minimal effort, and it’s even pretty to look at.
Absolutely love it. I can see that this will be a constant for me for the next decade.
Niggaplsomg - Great App for Projects, Reoccuring lists and Referral
I love the app on iphone. It’s a bit pricey to get it on my Mac so i’m not sure if i will buy it on there. It’s a shame because i love the layout of this app however there is not an option to access it online. It would be so helpful if you were without your laptop one day and you wanted to open it up online from a different computer. Plus sometimes i like to copy and paste my notes from my icloud notes onto work i do on my laptop. It would be awesome if you guys provided the option to access from anywhere after paying the fee.
rhi syd - My most used and relied upon app!
I love Things, it was recommend to my by a friend and I have recommended to many people. I use it mainly for work but also have an area/ tag for Home. Repeating tasks, tags, Evening and the logbook are some of the best features. I have multiple clients and each client has their own tag, each with multiple to-do’s under them. It’s so simple to use and extremely effective. I have Things for iPhone and iPad. I need to use a PC for work so unfortunately I don’t have a desktop version and this is my one disappointment. Any chance of a windows desktop version?!
Liz9898 - This is the app I have been waiting for my whole life!
Even in school I used to carry a little note book around with me called ‘Things to do book’. I remember my friends used to think it was hilarious. Well, this app is brilliant and I have tried a lot of productivity apps. I have been an avid Evernote user for years, but this app really helps to clarify my goals and sort out my thoughts and therefore what daily actions I need to take each day. It is expensive, but honestly, I think it is worth it if you are serious about getting more streamlined about your life and need clarity....
NickoBlayde - I love it but there’s just one thing missing.
So I’m loving this app so far, I was just using the built in reminders app on iOS and it’s pretty barebones in comparison. BUT there is something that the iOS reminders have that Things doesn’t: persistent banner notification! The thing I love about the built in reminders is when a reminder pops up it will stay there all day on your lock screen until you complete it, that way every time I look at my phone I get reminded!! I really miss that as I have to open the app to check my to do if the reminder time has passed.
Lily Marie K - Maybe not
I bought this as a replacement for iOS reminders only because I wanted a useful complication for the Apple Watch. Unfortunately the complication I had hoped to use (infograph, center stage) gives as much space to a big unsightly logo and the text ‘things’ as it does to actual useful info from the app. I’m so unhappy with the way my watchface now looks, that I would just rather go back to iOS reminders. Why not just show me my next two goals instead? Why do I want to see your logo? The progress bar also seems meaningless.
Nick Bertke - The launching pad of my day
I use the absolute hell out of this app. By sorting tasks into Projects and then Areas with tags and reminders, my mind is never cluttered and I’m always on track. The Watch app is a huge bonus when I’m doing the grocery shopping or working in the studio when I don’t want distractions. My only request is a Tags area that consolidates tasks by Tag. It’s a bit dumb having to manually type in a Tag to find tasks I’m looking for. Otherwise I’m thoroughly satisfied. Please don’t go to a subscription model like everybody else!
Ddstco - The original and best. Plus no subscriptions
Things is the original and best todo solution. I love Things, I use it on my iPhone, Mac & iPad everyday to organise my life and help me get things done.
Things has a beautiful minimalist design. It has a clean, simple and intuitive interface that doesn’t get in the way, but still offers powerful organization and task management tools.
And best of all there are NO subscriptions. Pay just once on each device you want to use it on and enjoy being more productive everyday with no subscription fees or IAPs.
I’ve been using Things for years and I’ve only had to pay for an upgrade once in all that time, which I was happy to do because Things is such an awesome service, super stable, beautifully designed and no subscriptions.
Everyone in the Apple ecosystem who wants to be more productive and get things done do themselves a favour and download Things.
louontherocks - Brilliant intuitive pleasing list app
I spent ages trying out different list apps. This one is the best I’ve tried. Very thoughtful design but also clever psychology of productivity incorporated by the developers - eg the “pie chart” symbol marker that tracks your progress towards completion of your projects, as you check off each item on the list. This is a winning feature I haven’t seen elsewhere - key reason I wouldn’t use any other list app now.
Works beautifully on iPhone. I also paid for the Mac laptop version - excellent seamless sync.
Bulletcatch - A little buggy
This could be an amazing app unfortunately it gets a bit frustrating at times to use. Trying to add notes or edit reminders sometimes requires 10 or more attempts to get the keyboard to show up. Would also be nice to have a calendar view of upcoming events to give a better overall snap shot of upcoming events rather than having to scroll down to see if there is anything planned on that day. Price is steep at $14, $8 seems fair for what the app does and also compared to other apps that do similar things. Other than that the app is great and is still the best daily organisation app I have found amongst the competition.
Annez De Sahntis - Extraordinary in its sophisticated presentation and planning power
I have resisted Things for the longest time. A loyal fan of Stephen Covey’s PlanPlus online for over 15 years, I finally contemplated GTD and I loved it! More applicable to today’s world, I wanted to find the best application possible. I embraced Todoist and Omnifocus and they were both great, but Things rises to a superior level. Extremely intelligent and outstandingly elegant, it makes the planning and organising pleasant and short. It allows and invites more “doing “ than “planning “. The best in its category!💖💕❤️
Simtish - Editable sharing
Just purchased things 3 and love love the app BUT what I didn’t realise is I can’t collaborate my lists with others ( husband) I just assumed I could as all lists really require others inputs. Our lists are travel plans, education plans as well as just stuff we need to get done. Without my husband to build and action on this list in the app really takes out how I need to use it.
Huge disadvance to the app and just expected this as a feature.
Pls pls look into it as I love the app but it really doesn’t suit me now as these are lists I need us both to own and manage
( modern working family)
Khoa M Tran - Love this! Been looking for years for it!
I’ve tried for literally years to organise my life. But there was never anything suitable from pen and paper classic to every. single. to do list app. All of them.
I’ve had things 3 downloaded for awhile but realised I wasn’t using it to its full effectiveness, and now that I am. 100% sticking to it.
Currently trialing the Mac version, after trial period at this rate this will be my full organisation system with the Mac version too.
Arthur Kazemi - Poor support and price planning
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!
KHANTMAW - Good app
It is a very good app, but I think you can improve a lot more.
Now in order to set the date and time, I need to go to Jump Start, choose or type the date and click the reminder to set the time. That is 3 extra steps.
It is way better if I can just type “call John on 12 Nov at 3pm” and the remainder will set to date and time automatically. If you can fix that, this is the die for app. Everything else is just perfect.
Vic Charlie Lou Design - Things has really helped me organise my day
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.
Shwgqhusbdxb - So helpful, super intuitive !
I am usually a little hesitant purchasing apps that have an upfront cost as I like to have a look at the interface and then decide to join a subscription. However very glad I did.
If you do buy this - take the guide that it initially comes with!! Only then will you be able to understand the usefulness of this app and be able to properly utilise it!
Just wanna read - Love this app but wish for more colour
Since getting the things app for iPhone, I have switched from OmniFocus2, did not like Omnifocus3. Much prefer the design and logic behind things 3. However after using moleskine’s Actions app I realised what’s missing with things 3. Colours. Coloured areas, coloured actions. It might not be for everyone, but to those of us who have strong visual preference, it means a lot. I still will stay with things 3, but now that I have seen how colours could be used in scheduling, I want more.
rayray-rayray - Great app, but still missing
Really like this app. Extremely useful and good for productivity. It is quick and easy to use and very straightforward. But I would prefer to have the option to group more things together and put the Area folder into another folder, more filing option. It would also be nice to be able to customize the whole interface to fit with what i prefer, something as simple as changing the color and theme of the UI would be a nice touch to the whole experience.
ausjono - Not bad
Been using tick tick for a number of years now and though I’d give THINGS 3 ago as you can purchase it outright. So far it’s not to bad. One massive miss for me though is the ability to attach files//images ((unless I’m missing something?). This would improve the app no end as I use this app for projects that I need to save photos and PDF. I know I can add a link to Dropbox etc which I have been doing but that’s just a whole lot of double handling. Thanks for the app though, it looks much prettier than things 2.
Mortster - Very good but could be better
I love how clean and well designed this app is, however there are a couple things I think would make it perfect. Better integration with other apps such as toggl so that the time spent on tasks can be measured. I would also very much like cross platform support. Perhaps the quickest and simplist wau of doing this would be to have a website that one can log into. And with HTML5 the stunning nature of this app could be preserved across platforms.
nik 555 - Best app
I never write reviews but felt compelled after using Things 3 for a year. I work for myself and previously used a paper and pen dairy. This app has completely taken over. I can’t say enough about it’s ease of use and ability to change things around or personalise them. Best app for organising your life by far.
If I could rate 6 stars out of 5 I would.
Keep up the great work. Thankyou.
Ganssel - Gaensel, my most used app
So, you want to keep up with the hard things, the other things and the simple stuff. This app gives it all. Start using the basics and grow into all the sophisticated stuff the app can do. It’s sophisticated but simple to set up and start to use.
It integrates with my calendar app and has me well and truly organised.
It literally saves my day and my life with no hassles.
APenNameAndThatA - Magnificent
This is the to-do app recommended by the internet, basically. I used to use a page in Evernote or pieces of paper, like an idiot. I don’t even know how to use it yet.
The email support is magnificent. Which is good, because the online/app instructions/ tutorial are not.
Given what this app can do it is *not* expensive.
Note to the developers: the reviewers say this app looks good. It does. But *compared* to MindNode, this app looks like a ruptured dog. Devs, me what you think this advice is worth! Just the colours in MindNode are great.
It would be good to be able to search *all* the lists using *multiple* tags!!! Like Evernote, people could choose to do away with different lists altogether.
One gripe, where’s my watch haptics?
BigZed44 - Helping me get organised
I’ve just started using Things after a friend recommended it. It has been a great help to keeping on track of things coming up and actually getting them done, so it really does do as it says!! I’m still learning about the other features but so far I’m happy to wake up and see the notifications and be reminded of what’s on today.
Micha_11 - So far so good
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.
Alexx0005 - Continued Support
Thing’s continued support of new devices and features (they’ve already released iOS 12 and watchOS support) means they’re one of the best developers in the business. This 5 star review is solely for support of the Apple Watch, a major player in my day to day life. Thing’s sets a benchmark for others to strive for and they’ve set it high. Good work. Keep up the support and people will keep buying.
Shaky101 - Easy to use
Brilliant app. So simple and easy to use while the watch interface is just superb.
Such a shame the Mac version is so expensive (I think it’s like 8 times more than this iOS version). Would of enjoyed having a desktop version but at $80 AUD, some of us will just have to miss out :(
Other than that, really handy well thought out app
McGuinnessMan - The best app is the one you use
I have tried loads of these apps, mainly the free ones and tbh I did get a shock by the price of this app but hey I am using it and I would pay 10x times the price to increase my productivity and levels of organisation. Seen the CEO of Gymshark using it and thought it would be worth a crack.
Only 1 week in, let’s see if it lasts.
vutuannguyen - Love it. Almost perfect
Things is essential to me. It’s almost perfect. I just wish there was a more efficient way to move from one to-do to another. To move to the next to-do, you need to tap out of the existing one and tap in again. This makes the ‘weekly review’ that’s part of the David Allen method not very fluid. I would love to be able to swipe between to-do ‘cards’ and, on the Mac, simply being able to use arrow keys to move between the items.
a.letitia1 - Really good
It’s been fantastic. Whenever I think of something that I need to do I just chuck it in inbox. At the end of the day I sift through all the tasks in the inbox and categorize them. At the beginning of the day I select all the tasks I can do that day. It’s really helped me organize my life and become an actual adult.
Morbid Undead - Best to-do list app ever!
Well worth the cost. I’ve tried just about every to-do list app in the App Store and this is absolutely the best. There’s only one thing I could suggest to improve it - I’d love to be able to make recurring evening tasks instead of setting them to evening every time the task comes up in Today.
Memtselfi - Developers beware
Undoubtedly the best iOS purchase(s) I have ever made. Amazing. However, if a new version is released without palatable upgrade pricing, I am moving to a competitors product without regret. The developers now have a LARGE AMOUNT of my hard earned money, don’t screw me with an unaffordable update. I love Things, let’s keep it that way!
cjmlgrto - Life’s smoother!
I enjoy using Things so much. Not only does it look so slick, it’s incredibly useful too! My favourite bit about it is that it’s just got the right balance of features that there’s not too little to make it hard to use, not too much to overwhelm. I run my entire life on it!
Bridge is - The BEST!
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 $$$!
New Annie - Feeling Organised
I’m really enjoying using this App and being forgetful and frustrated with myself staring to be a thing of the past.
I use it to just about all aspects of my life, for the Farm, our Clydesdales stud, home.
I also use it for my Christmas shopping list and Birthdays.
So yeah, I just love it.
tassiecelt - End of an era?
I’ve used things pretty much since it first came out. It is right up there with the best task managers.
However the trend at present is moving to subscriptions, while I understand the need for income, the reality is that with so many apps on our devices, if you add the cost of all the subscriptions it really mounts up.
The word is that Things 4 will follow suit, and it does that will be the end for me.
I’ve already paid for all the Mac and iOS versions but will happily delete them. Frankly I find Apple Reminders is all I need these days.
Response to developer: if you read my post you will see I refer to the next upgrade, Things4. If you are saying you will not go down the subscription path then I am wrong. Can you assure users of this?
Posiden-1821 - Upgrade buyer beware
If you are upgrading from Things 2 to Things 3 because they are removing sync support from Things 2 to force you to upgrade, please be aware that this is no longer an integrated application, you are forced to purchase the iPad version separately. It is also really just an interface tweak on Things 2 and does not introduce much new functionality for the price of the upgrade.
Disappointing change from a good developer. Use the free apple reminders instead.
PeterPetrovski - Great app but please add location, attachments
Simple and powerful. The only things that would improve it for me are location based reminders so I can use siri to input things like ‘remind me to pick up the milk when I leave the house in things’. Also attachments and rich previews like in Reminders would be fantastic.
jasontoheal - Wow
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.
LMW-2018 - Amazing App
‘Things’ is a dream come true for me. It’s so simple to use and it’s seamless integration with Apple apps such as Calendar is really helpful. My favourite aspect is how ‘Things’ works with Siri. I’ve worked out that saying ‘Hey Siri, use Things to add task...’ works 99% if the time. This really is a terrific app!!
diego.lorenzo.jose - Fantastic - needs a few essentials
Beautiful and great to use. Needs some things though.
(1) Location based reminders. Even the basic Apple reminders has that and is super useful.
(2) I’m not sure but I can’t seem to be able to set a specific time I want to be reminded of a task to do.
Larsaustralia - Brilliant
It took dozens of other task based apps to finally discover this app.
Probably the best app on my iPhone, MacBook and iPad (and I have 300+ apps). Not only a big congrats to the developer but a must have app for anyone who needs a little more organisation in their life.
gingerfloppsy - A great app but not perfect
A truly great app with a brilliant design and attention to detail, however lacking in some areas compared to its competition, apps like todoist and TickTick offer much better multi device support for example. A very good app that just falls short in a few very important areas

deebuz - Best productivity app I've ever used
I am a planner person, I work off lists (analog and digital) all the time and if I don't have my lists, you best believe I'm getting nothing done and feel like a lost puppy. Enter this app: Things, I just purchased it today, entered everything I needed to do (I have my wedding in 5 days!!) and I feel like I can rule the world. I WISH I looked and found this app years ago. It's very streamlined and has absolutely everything I need in terms of list-making, creating projects with notes and their own to-do lists, creating days where a task sits or deadline, repeating tasks, having tags and syncing calendars to the app. It has everything I've ever needed in a productivity app and more that I didn't know would be useful!! I LOVE THIS APP!! Low key hoping it can help me get the rest of my life together :-)
bry.jiang - Easily the best task manager I have ever used
Not only is it filled to the brim with actually useful features, it has such a fluid and clean interface that it is a delight to actually plan my days.
SaugaBoyTorontoMans - Love the app but why no iCloud??
I love the new things app. However, please bring back the option to backup to iCloud instead of your own servers.
Dean Rostad - Almost perfect
I have been searching for a way to combine my “getting things done” productivity world, and my “outliner world” where I plan projects. Things is the closest app I have found to bring these two worlds together in a way that is functional, beautiful and intuitive.
I love the tagging, dates, inbox, and headings. The reason I wrote “Almost” perfect is that I want to be able to collapse headings, areas, and notes (under project titles). Without the ability to collapse these the work environment can get cluttered.
rjc34 - A Masterpiece of UX Design!
Happened across Things in the story about featured iOS 13 apps, and so happy I did. To all the people at Cultured Code: thank you. What truly sets this task management app apart from everything else is the incredible attention paid to every aspect of the user interface (UI) and user experience (UX). Everything has a purpose, and functionality is never duplicated. Every interaction and gesture feels natural and makes sense. There is no fluff, no hidden features, or tools looking for a purpose. The iconography in the UI is just perfect, there’s never any confusion about what anything does.
It just works.
As an adult with ADHD running a business, keeping organized is something I’ve struggled with for years. Previous to trying Things, I was using a combination of the native iOS Calendar (synced to google calendar), Notes, Reminders, and also carried a pencil and notebook for quick notes/sketches/planning/collaboration. Things basically takes all of the useful parts of those apps and integrates them in a seamless and effortless way. I can just open it up and start throwing in tasks. I can easily drag and drop those tasks to the right category. If a task needs additional info I just tap it and start adding notes, or if it is something easily broken up into smaller chunks another tap and I can quickly add a sub-list to it. Task turned a little more complex than some notes and a list can comfortably handle? Just tap convert to project and bam now that task is a project that can hold its own tasks each with its own notes and/or lists.
The best part of Things though really has to be how unobtrusive it is. Nothing ever gets in the way. It does exactly what you want it to, and makes those planning tools exceptionally easy so you’ll actually use them.
JCK1970 - Like it!
Playing with app on and off for a few days and I think I can centralize so many things! This could be a life changer! The cost seems rather high and unreasonable to not share across platforms, so loses a star.
Max le terrible - Formidable
Blackshadows22 - Amazing
Best app I’ve ever used..... EVER!
iPhone user for 10+ years
sortatallish - ThingsCloud? No thanks...
Why would you require a things cloud account to sync the watch to the iPhone. You are not entitled to my data. Looking for an alternative...
Hype_cee - Apple Watch support
I’d really love to be able to switch between lists on my Apple Watch instead of only being able to see “Today”
Working guy - App Looks Good
The app has lots of promise, a nice layout, and the features I like. But the functionality of it is limited in that I cannot sync to a windows machine. For that reason I won’t use it as much as I would like.
CARGO architecture - An app that deliver
I guess it’s a like all German design. It’s respond to functions. A great app that does more with plenty of well integrated practical features. The Ui is super simple which make a gentle learning curve. I look forward to see the result of my daily use of this list app in my personal and professional life and activities.
9!('slqgq - A life saver. Best thing I’ve come across by a long shot
I love it
Pigjake - 👍App
Have only had this app for a few days but absolutely love it! Works flawlessly!
Krazyleaf - Pretty Good
I would definitely recommend adding support for pictures or scans. I wish there was an option for iCloud sync instead of your servers.
nickthorpie - Good app, WIDGET FUNCTIONALITY
This app combined with fantastical is my entire life. Don’t want to give this less than 5 stars but hear my comment out.
My complaint is just about widget/shortcut functionality, which is completely fine because of course these are new features.
1. When you add a todo from the widget, it puts it in your inbox instead of the list displayed
2. Limited shortcut support. Need to see a list in a shortcut workflow without it just opening the app in the background, need to be able to pull information out of a list as a shortcut variable, and need to be able to edit a list not just write(eg check off all to-do’s in a list to clear it.
3. Limited export support. This isn’t a big deal if you improve the shortcut support(like pulling list info as a variable), but it would be nice to allow myself to export my things to today’s calendar and vice versa.
Drd123456 - Fantastic it simple and complex
This app is the best of both worlds. I have used many programs nothing comes close to the ease of use with the list of potential functions.
It’s definitely well built.
Pofessor - Great
I have the app on both my iPhone and iPad and suddenly the two are not in sync. When a create a reminder on my iPad it doesn’t automatically show up on my iPhone. This problem needs to be fixed!
dominiklee - Nice app but they make you pay on other devices
If I already paid for the iPhone app, why do I have to pay $60 to use it on my MacBook Pro and $28 to use it on my iPad? Ridiculous. Wish Wunderlist was still around.
Sam Blakeley - Flexible
Things gives me the flexibility I need in a to-do app! Not every task I do is a simple task - some have sub tasks, some have deadline dates, and others... I need to arrange their priority. Things 3 does that!
Apollo37464 - Really great app but needs better integration
Really great app on its own. Although today we live in a connected world with an ecosystem of smart devices and apps for various purposes.
This requires any app that wants to stay at the top of the charts easy way to integrate with other apps and devices.
Email-to doesn’t cut it anymore.
On the positive side:
The integration with iOS reminders is great, but it supports only one reminders folder.
Calendar integration also works great.
Even without integration the UI and UX are sufficient for someone to find Things a great todo app. I switched to it from a different app that had better integration, just because of the UX here is so much better
RynCameron - Use along side Bullet Journal
Turns out I need both a Bullet Journal (because fountain pen on paper is remembered better than typed words in an app) and I need Things. Things is terrific for very long range plans, repeated tasks, notes I can search on, and such. Been using Things for years, since before it had a Cloud.
Ogden Butterworth - OF -> Things 3
New computer. New Catalina. The two week install nightmare. Prohibitive sub costs of Omni Group products made me migrate to Things 3. To be fair I was only using 8% of OmniFocus' power and T3 already feels a more appropriate product to my needs. Cultured Code would be wise to continue to offer perpetual licenses - that's where the loyalty is.
Stephen-Ho - Can’t work on my Apple Watch
I love using this app on my iPhone, MacBook, and iPad. I also want to use it on my Apple Watch as well. But no matter how many times I uninstalled and reinstalled this app on my Apple Watch, it kept popping up this message saying “Things requires your iPhone app.” Yes, I DO HAVE IT ON MY IPHONE!! This becomes so annoying to me recently because I really want to use it on my Apple Watch.
FlyingSparrow - As advertised. Decent productivity app
A good productivity app that allows you to create and prioritize task lists. Best bang for your buck if you have an Apple Watch to use with it. A tad overpriced for what it does, IMO, but I’m glad to have an app that is one time purchase and no subscription fees.
dcheng333 - High battery drain
Good app but heavy on the battery. With just 4 minutes of screen time and 2 minutes of background Things was responsible for 35% of my battery usage. Contrast this to Chrome which was on screen for 27 minutes and in the background for 4 but only used 18%.
canuckaroo - Best External Brain
If I think of something I have to do, I add it to Things. Upcoming event? Same. Project planning? Yup. I have been using this app for > 10 years and it is supreme in every way. Worth the money. I just recovered from a dead phone and the Cloud Sync reloaded everything my new phone. It holds the place of prominence on the bottom tray of my iPhone screen - only 4 apps hold that position! It is the best external brain app out there, especially if you own a Mac.
BergMedia - To do- write review
A good app for organizing things. It has projects and categories, which most apps don’t. Also it syncs from my desktop to my phone. Now to do all the things on my lists!
RW TO - Best Organizer App Available
My phone contains my life and work, hence a solid and efficient organizer/project management application is vital if you roam in today’s global and electronic environment. If have tried many apps over time, and I am a hard to please perfectionist. This app is simply perfect in every aspect, and its smart and thought-through functions are stunning. If you are serious about performance and efficiency, this “Maybach of organizers” is your last organizer ever purchased. Yes, pricey, but money well spent.
Daniel Letourneau - Simple and Elegant
This is my first productivity app download. I need to consolidate my priorities, and Things makes this dead simple. As another reviewer mentioned, the app never gets in its own way. Seamless experience.
Carolineschnapp - Lovely, intuitive app
Except won’t let you apply bold or italic on text; but maybe they don’t want the app to get ouf of hand with rich text. Also I wish that ctrl enter would bring you to a new line, and enter close the to do; unfortunately it is the opposite, which makes no sense. Still is a 5 star app on all devices.
cth619 - Love it!!! (But....)
I really do love this app. It helps tremendously in day-to-day remembering.
The only thing is I wish you could highlight certain words in your lists. Or that the “tags” were colour-coded so that a quick glance is also a reminder.
But mostly I love the one-time (slightly high) fee and that there is no need to pay monthly. A monthly fee is the worst creation EVER
fidgetyphi - Please improve the icon
Great app. iPhone app icon is a turn off.
Mobolger - Does a wonderful job..
Of overwriting new entries with old information. Did a search, the new list never seems to have existed. No force quitting was involved either.. and this has not been the first time.
BHunt1234 - Love it so far
This app is so simple it’s perfect - tied a few others - integration with iPhone is amazing and very smooth with calendar. Thank you developers 👏👏👏👏
Bpvc351 - Bring back direct sync!
I don’t want to use the cloud. It’s too much of a security risk. My watch used to sync directly to my phone, but this last update broke it. It demands that I upload everything to their company. Now I can’t use Things on my watch at all.
Sebastoche777 - Apple watch app disappointing
The app for the phone is good but ehat you can see on apple watch is very disappointing. Just a day view. Impossible to see the next days
Tyler Lau 818 - Almost there
I love this app so much but it’s missing just a few things. Please allow me to edit and add calendar events. Also when you are in the upcoming tab, please let me expand the other events for the upcoming months. Other than that, highly recommend if you are considering. I have tried many other calendar apps and this is the best one yet.
Dottymargie - Replaces my day timer
I’ve been looking for something to replace my paper daytimer.
This is it. It is easy to make list and then schedule the tasks.
I have only just started and there is so much potential.
Many of these are for the workforce but this is perfect for life planning.
Dr_El - Great app; minor glitches interfacing with Exchange server
I have been using Things 3 for almost one year and it has been transformational in my work flow. The interface is very user friendly and clean looking. Using projects, tags, quick find, etc. make it really useful daily. I have all 3 apps iPhone, iPad, and Mac. Info is synced flawlessly between platforms using their cloud server.
A key issue for me was sending emails to Things, as many of my tasks come from email. Using their server as a conduit for this is effective, where you forward the email to Things apps using a private Things email address that is assigned when you sign up for the service (free). This strategy works almost flawlessly with the Mac App. There is a link on the bottom of the forwarded email that links you back to the original email. Unfortunately, this does not work well with the iPhone and iPad apps as the links frequently fail to work.
I sought help from the customer service, who were very prompt and detailed in their approach, but unfortunately for me, they could not find a good solution. The problem seems to relate to interfacing with Exchange servers, which is what is used at my work. I hope this can be fixed for an otherwise outstanding app.
we don't rent apps - What a rip off!
This app has nothing impressive compared to other apps in the App Store and be aware that for the iPad the app costs $27 dollars additionally.
x12397 - Really not better than imbedded task app
Total waste of money. Tried it for 12 hours. Completed the tutorial. Requested a refund but APPLE declined.
kman82696 - Love it
dback1268 - Top App
This app is absolutely worth every penny, although I have only scratched the surface with what it actually can provide I am impressed with how easy it is to use. If you are looking to stay organized on the fly this is the App that will keep you a head of the game.
irufi - Worth it
I’ve tried almost every todo apps.
I keep coming back to Things. It does everything I want intuitively and with a nice touch.
I’ve deleted all the other apps and kept Things .
Only thing currently missing is the ability to share lists with the family.
One thing to improve is the natural input that could be faster / smarter e.g. to detect dates and such.
OCD orginized - EVENTS
When I look at my calendar or today I can’t see how long my, event is just when it starts.
LD058 - Falling short
UPDATE: Huge THANK YOU for the very swift response; it is so refreshing to get such immediate support from just leaving a review here. It showcases just how much the Things team cares about its users as individuals, and not just a mass. I stand corrected when it comes to 1); I should’ve explored more (by clicking more weekdays to see if more than one chosen weekday would register). MASSIVE help.
1) was my biggest gripe, but I would still like to see 2) implemented. But, just to push my luck, in case developers would take into consideration—the following would make Things even greater:
3) REMINDERS on tasks *without due dates*.
4)In “Today” view, OVERDUE tasks (incomplete tasks from the previous day), *without due dates*, be marked/sectioned as Overdue when they are transferred over to the current “Today” view. The Overdue tasks can also be rid of that marker if we choose to manually schedule them to “Today” or some other day. It’d be a helpful motivator to have a visual confrontation of tasks from the previous day that we didn’t complete.
5) Option to indicate the IMPORTANCE of tasks. This can be shown as a faint highlight on the task with the colour that corresponds to the chosen level of Importance (from perhaps 3 levels of Importance). Or some other visual marker on the task—I’m sure developers can come up with cleverer ways.
Again, thank you, for creating this incredible app that makes staying organised and productive so appealing.
I love this app. I use it daily as my only task manager. I love the simple and streamlined UI, and the intuitive UX which made the initial learning curve feel near non-existent. However, as I’ve used it for a while, I realised there are some missing features that are really fuelling my annoyance for having to manually edit my to-list everyday.
PLEASE consider implementing:
1) for Repeat tasks: the option of selecting the specific DAYS OF THE WEEK on which a task should repeat. So users don’t need to manually delete the repeated task on days when it isn’t required.
2) for Repeat tasks: the option of AUTOMATICALLY moving the repeated task under “THIS EVENING” of the day on which the task is set to repeat. So users don’t need to manually move a task (or worse, taskS) every single day, especially for tasks that repeat daily.
Note that 1) and 2) should be able to be selected in conjunction with each other, should the user want it.
These 2 functions would be incredibly useful, and not just for me but for many other people, I wager. Having to manually reorder my tasks every single day is a real pain, and one that is not even necessary as the two missing features are no longer novel or innovative, given the many other apps that have long succeeded in implementing the features. I wouldn’t be surprised if many people, including myself, start looking at other competing apps because of the hassle.
TylerFerris - Needle in a Haystack
I have made a strong effort to utilize a “to-do” app with hopes to help organize my home and work life. Every “to-do” app I tried worked for only a few days then I’d forget about it. Things 3 is everything I’ve looked for in a to do app and now I’m 4 months in and couldn’t imagine life without it!
Onotadaki - Effective
Solid software package
Alyssa Bedard - This I what I needed in my life
This app is what you need if you want to organize your life, track and manage projects of your own. It makes you get things done! I use it everyday. It is so simple but so powerful.
The MacOS app is expensive but I think I’m going to buy it. It changed the way I do to do lists. I will forever use this app.
Please could you work on smart date/word recognition like Fantastical and Todoist?
Thank you so much.

Picture Elegance - Hideous Calendar Layout
I want to like this app because it contains some truly good features. The calendar layout is sloppy, and it borders on being lazy. Firstly, all of the information is bunched together with no separation between each event.
The calendar list just feels rushed. Other applications in the App Store for far less at least ensure that their calendar items are aligned with one another - Things does not.
My gripe might seem minor to most; however, visual aesthetics are important to me. If the calendar isn’t important, the app allows you to hide it. Question is, why would the developers deny users the ability to create spacing and align the list?
Jemartti - iOS app is crashy
I love Things 3. I use it religiously on my iPhone, iPad, and MacBook Pro to keep my life in order. This is a review specific to stability of the iOS version.
This app crashes a lot—around five full crashes per week. The main one occurs when I open the app in the morning to review my Today list. It’ll say something like “You have seven new tasks today” in yellow. If I hit Okay, there’s a good chance it crashes. Similarly if I open the app and rapidly check something off. There are other bugs too: I’ve had a few situations where the checkboxes are missing from the list of tasks and when I try interacting with a task the app crashes.
I do love Things, and these don’t stop me from using it. Rather, they severely detract from an otherwise beautiful experience.
Renny Roo - Powerful, Beautiful and Intuitive
Beautifully designed and intuitive to use, this app could have come straight from Apple. I absolutely love looking at it, which is important from a organizational app, and has become integral to my daily routine. Where I used to find myself forgetting to do boring tasks through out the day, this tool keeps me on track.
I’ve tried a variety of options through out the years and this one, to me, combines simplicity of design with power of functionality better than any other.
The only improvement I would like to suggest to developers is the ability to add pictures to tasks.
*Zhano - Game Changer!
I read someone else’s review that said this app was a game changer, and it is. My work load used to consist of two projects. Now I have eight. Balls were getting dropped. I needed to get SUPER organized. My brain did not have the bandwidth. Things comes with a practical tutorial to get you started. It’s easy and FUN to learn and use. This is the best $10 I’ve spent in a very long time. Again like another reviewer, I rarely write a review, but felt I owe it to this company for offering such a wonderfully designed app that has changed the way I work and live. For my situation, Things is not just helpful, it’s vital. I recommend Things with highest praise (and thanks).
sweise28 - Finally! A tool that can organize everything in my head
I have tried SO many to-do tools including heavy-duty paid ones like Asana, HubSpot, Jira. I've tried paper Kanan boards and bullet journals and they were all so complicated and messy and things fell off my plate, stickies got lost, white board notes for erased.
I'm a freelancer with multiple clients, all with a set of to-dos. I also am renovating a house, am a mom of two, and am writing a book. I was paying for expensive tracking software and nothing was working until I found this tool. I only wish I had found it years ago!
This app blows other to-do trackers out of the water in its ability to take my (literally) hundreds of to-dos, organize them in a meaningful way, and hold me accountable to finish them all by resurfacing them, repeating tasks, and reminding me.
The only thing that would make it better is a web version where you can see your to-dos while you're at a computer so you can track stuff on your screen while you're at work.
Can't say enough about this app!
PCM1052014 - Extremely Well Designed Tasks App
I rarely write reviews. When I do, it’s to highlight a product or service that exemplifies excellence. Things 3 is as close to perfection as a Tasks app can get. I run a busy computer services business. Things 3 is an important tool in my productivity suite, as important as Commit, my PSA tool, and Quickbooks, my accounting tool. I feel in control and organized. I am not forgetting tasks for clients and family. Things ensures I get them done. The only feature I would love to see is a Windows app. I know they won’t do it, but I don’t hold it against the authors. Still, I would welcome one and gladly pay to license it.
Dragotac - Great app with some downfalls
Let me start off by saying this is a fantastic task managing application. That being said, it is really only catered to iOS and MacOS. So if you use windows don’t expect any kind of web client. Furthermore there is also large pay walls to this application. You will have to purchase the iOS app, iPad app, and the macOS app. You’re looking at upwards of $30 spent on a task manager that is arguably missing key features that free task manager apps offer. For one it doesn’t have a dark mode, you can’t set task priority, no multiple reminders on tasks or reminders on sub tasks and the biggest one, no windows support. This is a great app but if you’re looking for an application that can handle multiple platforms without a hitch then i would look towards TickTick or Todoist.
Triton451 - Worth the Money!
I never write app reviews but this one is well worth the time. Easy to use. Easy to figure out. Not complicated like other productivity apps I have tried. Allows integration with iPhone calendar and widgets. I highly recommend it. It allows the user to keep it simple or go in-depth with check lists, tasks and/or projects. I like that you can personalize it to your own experience and your own needs. It’s not a one size fits all app that leaves you wanting more. I was leery of the price tag at first but for the cost of two Starbucks drinks I feel like my busy life is better managed. Thank you for making a great app.
marcbrat - Please allow lists to be shared
I love this app. The design is clean and functional, it’s packed with features, but user friendly and easy to get started. I only have one request: shareable lists! This app is better than wunderlist, and waaaaay better than reminders (even with the iOS 13 update) but both of those apps have the ability to share lists, something I find very useful for a family list with my wife for managing our home and our two kids, and sharing lists with my teams at work. It’s the only thing missing from this wonderful app. Add it, and I’ll gladly change this review to 5 stars. Don’t add it, and I’ll continue loving your product (just not as much).
Wenchy24 - Things 3 means more productivity
I’ve used this app for almost a week and so far I’m noticing that I’m more productive than ever. I like that it gives me my to-do list every morning. I can also set up specific reminders to make sure I get the essential things done. And I’ve been able to tackle mini projects through it. Even though it displays my calendar events, I wish it could also serve as a calendar such that I don’t need to go to my actual calendar to schedule appointments or events that aren’t projects or to-do’s. Also, it would be great if the projects were displayed on a timeline. The pie chart icon is nice but it’s not really the same in terms of showing where you are in the project.
Scrafford45 - Finally found something that just works!
I can’t tell you how many ToDo list apps I’ve tried to use over many years but trying to make them work stressed me out more than trying to keep things going. This one just works. It’s like it knows what I want and just does it. It can be simple and be great but I am discovering things all the time that make it perfect. Use to think of things in the middle of the night first thinking I’d remember in the morning - NOT. Now still in bed I can say Hay Siri in Things remind me to ### and it will be in my inbox in the morning. I can stop thinking about it and go back to sleep.
RubenMartinez09 - Feels like pure perfection
I rarely leave App Store reviews, but I have to for Things. I’ve tried almost every single productivity tool, task manager, etc. Have read books like “Getting Things Done” and “The Checklist Manifesto.” And it wasn’t until I discovered Things last week that I felt like finally, FINALLY AFTER ALL THESE YEARS, something that “just works.” I don’t know how to explain it, but it feels like they’ve thought through every single little use-case. My tasks conform to what I need, whereas other apps I feel I have to conform to their rules/ environment. It’s the first task manager to feel like “My to-dos” rather than “the todos I keep in software XYZ”
unchewable - Best todo app
I have used them all instill use todoist at work as I am all pc and collaborate with others. But this app is so good if it’s share output was a little cleaner and the log could filter what I complete in a week I would use this for work as well it’s that good. Being able to set a deadline and reminders finally. Also love that repeated events don’t stay there in the way they go to the next time they are repeated why do so many todo apps get this wrong. I love areas and projects and lists very clear and concise with lots of options. Works great and the interface is beautiful with animations and thoughtful design. Keep up the great work guys.
Mnmnmnmmmmmmmm - Excellent with just one suggestion!
I love this app, it really helps to keep on top of things! However, I have just one suggestion (if it’s not already implemented). I’d like to be able to change when the day “starts” from the settings. I work most days until midnight, so I’d appreciate the option to change when the day “starts” to 5:00 a.m. or so, that way my work from the previous day doesn’t get stacked with my recurring tasks the next day at midnight, to give myself the gratifying feeling of checking everything off my to-do list at the end of the day. Still, I love and recommend this app!
Doug Burroughs - Back to Things
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!
Roxiepup6 - Not intuitive: It’s hard to input alarms and tags
2 of us have been using Things for several months on iPhone and iPad on a regular basis. However it’s still quite cumbersome to enter a simple task we want put in the right bucket...and for it to even show up on our radar!
It is not quick or easy to see or input alarm times, or tags. I don’t like the way it hides to dos so easily (yet some groups I can’t I hide that I don’t want to delete - like their tips). The view of the categories is too BIG. We should also be able to make all tasks under it pull down in one list and show all the time or hit a button to hide them.
The tags are annoying!!!!! It should work like file folders but doesn’t.
For example I have tags for:
- Child A
- Child B
- Grandma etc
- lap top
- phone call
I don’t want to see every single item unless I click on the parent tag!!!! This makes it hard to do quick tasks also and keep them organized. To organize them in things everything takes way to long!
Poor interface. WAy too expensive for what it is!
I bought Thibgs for ipads, IPhone, + and imac!!!
Why all these rave reviews??!
MasPollo - Finally it has dark mode!
It’s gorgeous, and it keeps getting better!
But I do have a bunch of recommendations.
- Needs a button for "tomorrow" in the calendar. At the end of a day, I like to organize my thoughts about what I should do the following day. So a tomorrow button would be incredibly helpful!
- Wrap long items to next line. The "..." doesn't help! This would greatly help me to quickly see what I need to finish for the day.
- When a list of checklist items are exported from another app, they aren't imported as to-do items in Things. Import & exporting still need some improvements.
- Projects should have colors to help distinguish them apart. That way, the different types of things that I need to finish each day are easier to identify.
- Also, instead of pie charts, custom icons (like Ulysses) would be SWEET! Pie charts are funny, because where I need it most is for today, but that’s a star!
- Swiping on a heading shows a "Delete" option, but tapping on its "..." button shows a "Remove" option.
Mrs. OIII - Simplistic and Powerful
I love the Things app! I’ve kept it longer than any other productivity app, and the Apple Watch integration is a major part of it. The ability to grab tasks thrown at me and keep them is vital, as I often have a million take coming to me before I can write them down or organize them in my head, let alone remember them! While I like the ability to email my tasks, I wish I could just have the app on my PC, so options outside of Apple would be helpful. I’d also love if part of the view could incorporate the Eisenhower Matrix as a graphic organizer, maybe with the tags we already use within the app.
I love this app! Well done! 😍
therookster - Not good for mixed environments
I use an iPhone and a PC in combination. I thought this would be OK, but as I started using Things3 I found the restriction of working only on my phone added too much friction to my lists and I stopped using it. I also found Things3 to be sluggish when loading new data sets, like Upcoming or sub-lists. This also added friction that would be better eliminated.
That said, I really like the design of the product, and if I only used Mac products I would gladly have purchased it for all environments and been very satisfied. If “all Apple” describes your technology, I highly recommend it. Otherwise, I would advise using a different “to do” program that allows use on all of your devices not just your phone.
Appman5605 - Easy flow, beautiful, and yet profoundly powerful
I’m one of those productivity seekers who switched back-and-forth between OmniFocus and Things a couple of times. Recently I came across Things 3 which I hadn’t looked at for least a year. As robust and powerful OmniFocus might be, I also found it to be an app that requires a lot of heavy lifting. It’s still an excellent app, but Things 3 feels and looks so effortlessly while retaining a powerful engine under the hood. For the past two weeks I’ve been totally thrilled with Things 3 and transitioned task Management to Things. It’s worth every moment I spent learning the new features.
Mr. Aries - GTD
I really like using Things it kind of helps me get a lot of things done actually.
Pro: it allows you to separate different tasks, thoughts and reminders in different sections. This is a helpful tool for me to have.
Con: I wish there was a better integration with the Calendar to were you would be able to see your deadline tasks or scheduled reminders with in your actual calendar app. 2. For the today screen I believe it would be Very helpful if all of the tasks or reminders that were due for that particular day would all go up to the top of the view that way you wouldn’t have to scroll down all the time to see what is actually due today.
ctt1wbw - Pretty lame
Missing two things to be great. For whatever insane reason you can’t mark a future task as complete. This basic functionality not being there completely escapes me. Why can’t you mark a future task as complete? The other thing is being able to mark any task as in progress. Again a basic thing. I use Things to keep track of my bills. If I have a $200 electric bill and I pay $100, there’s no way to mark that task as in progress. No way.
Add these two simple and basic things please.
Update after update and they simply refuse to add the most basic functionality to the app. Also why no ability to change the icon? I’m thinking for the price people pay for this app that function should be there. But it’s not. Yet people continue to use this app and ignore others out there. Haven’t a clue why.
Garage Band 3.0 - Changed My Relationship to the Word “Responsibility”
It’s the weirdest feeling, but I actually LIKE responsibilities now! With Things I tell myself “I GET to do this...” even if it’s not all that interesting.
There’s something about the way it’s designed that makes it truly remarkable for the user.
This company clearly takes pride in what they do. This app is by far the most inspiring tool I’ve ever used.
Life can be challenging, but Things makes it infinitely more fun and engaging. I feel like I’m playing a video game while using it.
I’ve had so many disparate ways of managing my responsibilities, and to think that I could actually find an app to use on my phone to sync my priorities into one place seemed like a bad idea since I already spend so much time on it.
But the time I spend on Things is easily the best use of my time throughout the day, and I’m always thinking of how to use it more intelligently.
I am so grateful for this app and I really hope to use it for the rest of my life. Seriously. Keep it up guys!!!
Alex - El - I’m a convert! + !!!DARK MODE!!!
After spending the last year trying many task managers I’ve finally settled on Things 3 for the foreseeable future. I was holding off trying it out because there was no dark mode (a non-negotiable feature for me) and now that they’ve added it, Things 3 has blown me away with it’s combination of powerful features and simple UI. All of the gestures became intuitive almost immediately. It’s simple enough for anyone new to task managers yet powerful enough for most power users. The people who make this app have a keen understanding of design and have made something really special.
its_mikayla - Intuitive, Flexible, and Rewarding
I used to have the original Things on my phone, but with a new phone and account, I decided to upgrade to Things 3 (as it’s the only Things that’s currently available). It’s a bit of a steep price compared to what I’m used to on the App Store, but every cent was worth it.
Things 3 is remarkably intuitive - it’s very simple, simpler than it ever was in even Things 1, to get down a task that expresses exactly what you want it to. It’s also very flexible - the deeper you dive into it, the more little tricks you find to be able to customize your tasks endlessly, so you can make your workflow work for you.
Finally, the app is surprisingly rewarding. Checking items off a list is a fun feeling in and of itself, but Things elevates that feeing with progress bars filling, notifications ticking down, and satisfying animations that complement every accomplishment you make.
I highly recommend Things 3 to anyone interested in managing their work and lives a bit better.
awayne1756 - Just As Good As The Other To Do Apps
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.
shayhawkify - Love it!
I really really love this app. It's beautiful and simple to use while being extremely powerful. It supports my GTD-ish ways very well without the overwhelming features of Omnifocus.
Couple of minor improvements I'd like to see:
-Don't show a badge on the app icon for tasks I've put in "this evening" until it's actually evening (and let me set when "evening" starts). I like the badge as a quick way to see how many things are still on my plate, but don't want it to nag me about home tasks when I'm at work.
-Let me schedule things for "tomorrow evening", etc. Again, makes it easier to divide home and work tasks.
The Proletariat Uprising - The task management app you've been longing for
What can I say? This app is amazing. It is the task management app that I have been desperately waiting for, for so long. As someone who read Getting Things Done by David Allen and loved the idea of GTD but realized that it was far too complicated for daily use, I'm so excited to finally have an app that foregrounds the best parts of GTD while enabling all of the advanced aspects (if you really want them) with a phenomenal UI. Once you throw in the fact that this app syncs perfectly with the Mac version and my Google calendar, it just blows everything else away. This is as good as apps get.
TumbleBumbleatNight - Things works because less is more
I’ve tried all the big task management apps out there. Some are incredibly complex, some far too simple. Things3, however, is the sweet spot. I have a busy personal life and manage complex, multi-phased projects for work. This app does a good job at managing both.
Things3 does not have as much customization as some other popular task management apps, but for me this is what ultimately made it more effective. With other apps, I’d get so bogged down in customizing things, that I lost focused of just being productive. Things3 establishes a system and you just follow that system. I was surprised to find that this is what made me more productive.
The UI of this app is still far better than anything else out there. And the speed at which it allows users to enter tasks (while following the GTD methodology) is fantastic.
Every now and again, I’ll give some other task management app a try but I always come right back to Things3. It just works.
Buddhastyle - It’s excellent, but too expensive for multiple devices
First of all, the ux is probably the best on the market (I’ve used at least 6-10 task tracking apps). The motion design, ease of use, synchronization across devices, little details etc....all good.
That said, you shouldn’t have to pay for both iPad and iPhone versions. That’s breaking an existing model that we’ve all come to rightfully expect. Just one price people. Not two. I get having to pay more for the Mac version, but iOS devices should mean you pay only once.
Otherwise, it’s pretty well thought out and executed.
THEDAYISMINE - It’s The Most Gorgeous App Ever Designed.
These developers turned “gorgeous” into a business model. That’s all it is: the worlds most gorgeous, most simple, and most functional todo app. This app—the way it looks, feels, and functions—is just... so much darn fun to use. It’s that good looking. Some days, when I’m feeling down, I open this app, and just collapse, then expand a to-do, over and over again—sometimes even for hours at a time. Lol. (But seriously, I do. It’s that good.). THE DETAILS!!: holy cannoli. They’re so yummy I think Apple should force all app developers who want to publish an app in the store to intern with these guys. Just get it.
ThingsFan10 - Fantastic upgrade
As a long-time Things 2 user, I finally added a Things 3 app to my phone. Wow. The developers seem to have gotten right into my head and added in functions in Things 3 for so many of the workarounds I had come up with to meet my needs in Things 2 (bullets in to dos, headings, ability to move to do order on iPhone app, the major update to Upcoming (I can see all to dos on upcoming scheduled days and easily adjust as necessary when I've gotten a little too carried away for one day's expectations)). Overall, this is a huge improvement to an already great app. Thanks Things team!!
hockemaster12 - Great, With hopes for a few enhancements
Overall, this app is great and has really helped me tame my to dos so far. As others have said, it’s the perfect harmony of elegance and power. And from my experience with other apps, the appearance of simplicity and ease is deceptively important otherwise I tend to start to ignore my to dos.
There’s a few things I hope they add to bring this app to the next level:
- Allow to indicate particularly important to dos and have them show up at the top of Today so I can easily see them.
- Allow to schedule checklist items within a to-do for different days, and make the checklist in general a bit less hidden within the overall app interface
- Add subfolders
- Offer a website-based version with lite functionality so that people who have apple products but do work on PCs (A.K.A. Engineers) can still access their todos via a computer during the day.
Overall, this app is the best I have found for organization. With the addition of those features, the app would go from “great” to “perfect” for me.
NanMann - In my 80’s Best I’ve Ever Seen
I have very little money I can spend now that I’m retired; took a chance that this would help me with my organizing. BEST MONEY I’ve ever spent. Each time I use it I learn something new and each time it shows me it is put on my lists EASIER than I had been trying to get it accomplished. This #3 thinks better than I do; it’s really helping me accomplish my chores and is so easy to use and rearrange...and I’m always rearranging my priorities. This is a no brainer.... I’m so happy and lucky that I purchased this....it’s really worth the money. Thank you to those who thought this up, it is an amazing help.
Evernoter7 - Delightful
It appears that I have finally found the one productivity app that is fun to use and works beautifully.
I have tried many productivity apps over the years with ToDoist and OmniFocus 3 being the most recent ones used. When I saw the beauty and easy functionality of Things 3 I jumped in, leaving the others behind. It has served me well.
Updates arrive regularly. My one request would be that the behavior of repeating tasks would be improved. I like the beautiful simplicity of Things 3 and hope it can be maintained as new features are added. A most delightful app!
rickniley - Was Hesitant, Now a Fan
I’ve used many a task manager app/system before, and after some time I just fade off without any significant result. But a friend convinced me to take the plunge, and I’m glad I did. The app is gorgeous to look at (honestly slicker than some first party iPhone apps), but it’s got a hidden complexity that allows you to dive in as much (or as little) as you want. Lately it’s been keeping my head on straight at work with multiple concurrent projects, and it’s become a fun challenge to complete everything on my Today page. You definitely get what you pay for!
Atom Jarvis - This is a premium app. Where are the premium functions?
The Apple Watch app barely ever works (does not update with the phone app.)
Where is the geofencing? Where is the reoccurring reminders? Where is sharing? Where is Alexa support? Why can’t I designate that when I open the app, it opens on a certain list? If I can’t decline the auto import of a task from another app, why even make me approve it? Am I supposed to be bowled over by exclusively by the UI of sparsity? I switched from Wunderlist to proactively prepare for when Microsoft nixes it completely, and I miss that near perfect product that was offered for free. Whereas with Things, I keep hoping that I’ve paid for a product that will get more feature rich, and I’m not seeing it.
Ckarkbar - Love it. Would love to see...
Best app by far to help me organize my life. I use it at home and work and it has replaced all my other apps and techniques to stay organized. I’m a higher level exec and often assign tasks to others, track notes of things I want to assign to others, and then have my own projects. It would be great to have a button where I can denote an task as being assigned (perhaps even a separate follow up date in addition to a due date). Lastly it would be great if there was a way to view all tasks at once and see what projects they are assigned to.
No Name5555555555 - Wonderful app. Idea for next update.
Such a wonderful app. Simple to use, but so capable in how it helps me stay focused and on track. Without taking away from the simplicity, would it be possible to add the capability to change the square in front of a task to another symbol (perhaps just a dot) to indicate that I’ve started to work a task? I’m often working multiple issues simultaneously, and it would be great to have a visual cue for where I’m already taking action as opposed to what I haven’t started yet. Just helps my mind keep everything straight. I appreciate your consideration.
EduardLev - Life Changing
I’ve been looking for a simple way to manage the things I need to do in my life. At home, at work, projects, everything. I’ve read “Getting Things Done” and having physical inboxes and pieces of paper. I’ve tried using dozens of other apps. But nothing “sticks” quite like this app. It’s easy to use, fluid, fits very well with the GTD workflow without being too strict about it, and actually helps me get things done. The Siri integration is fantastic. Not sure if it is integrated with Alexa, which would be even better, but nonetheless. As a developer, I’m impressed and kudos to the team.
Shahs bivi - Had for over 7 years
I love this app. It helps me stay organized and do projects that need to get done in easy broken dish steps. I can set deadlines for myself, make certain tasks repeat, and even create different areas of responsibility so that it’s every easy to see where certain things need to get done. I can even create checklists inside my to-do’s for those items that have multiple steps. It’s always worked well and synced properly even through all these years. It’s been one of my most-used apps and is worth every penny.
Chris&Lynn - My All-In-One organizer
Prior to Things, I used Notes for my checklists, Calendar for my appointments, and Reminders for categorical tasks that had to be done. Now with Things 3, I get to combine it all.
My wife and I bought the phone version to give it a test run, and after experiencing it’s brilliant functionality, she decided to buy the iPad version. Now with ease we get to import our existing Calendar appointments, make new Inbox tasks, create multi-layered list/checklist projects, plan family events, add log records to our completed tasks, and, in short, organize our lives.
Knrmrz - Great besides one BIG thing!
I love the app and the design of it makes it nice to use. I wish there was an option to preview first line of notes so I didn’t have to go into the task every time... but that’s no the problem I needed to bring attention to. The main flaw of this app is the app icon itself. Hear me out. For as sleek at the design of the actual app is the icon doesn’t really reflect that and it just kinda looks ugly on my home screen so I wish some improvement could be made like modernizing the icon and then let us change it to match the theme we pick within the app. That is it, other than that great app I love it.
Super CCrusher - Contains the Essentials of Project Planning
The app is very easy to use and understand. No more paper lists to keep track of and updating. Connect personal family and life goals seamlessly with your career goals in order to easily organize and manage them all at your fingertips on your smartphone. Projects at work are easily accessible, so enjoy your weekend and relax fully knowing that you can reorient yourself to what needs to be done and when on Monday morning before you start your day. I needed a tool like this years ago, but better late than never.
ThePathForWorkandLife - I’m a Todoist Fan
I’ve been using TD a while and lately I have found myself stalled with keeping things moving the way I want to see them and the way my brain thinks about the task or project. Things appeared and so I’m testing the phone app to see how things move and flow. So far in just one day of adding some tasks and goals I feel like my day is lighter and the process is going to be targeted in Things the way I like to see them. I really enjoy the calendar items next to the to-dos. Nice move! Agenda has this feature as well. It makes a ton of sense when working with Time Blocking to see these two side by side.
CU nate_dogg - Worth every penny
I rarely take the time to write a review for an app but this one deserves a five star review. I have tried every task or to do app out there and never found one that actually worked for me and helped me accomplish all that I need to accomplish. That is until I found Things 3. This is an amazing app that I already love and feel will help me be more productive. My only request of the developer is to make a Windows or web-based version. I do have the iPad version but it would be nice to be able to view it on my PC. That’s a first world problem for sure. Thanks.
Perkkie - Finally!
I’ve downloaded what seems like a million apps looking for something that actually worked for me. Something that wasn’t so loaded with features that it became cumbersome to use or so simple it lacked real function. This is the PERFECT app and has literally changed my days by helping me more productive and less stressed. Ya can’t put a price on that people! It’s functional, simple to use, and gives me options to use it in different ways that work so well for me. I want to put these developers on my Christmas card list. Thank you for such an amazing app!
drjosephs - Nice todo/checklist app
This is a pretty basic todo or checklist style app that does what it does really well. It got an Apple design award I suspect for its slick interface and uses Apple’s latest and greatest features like drag and drop which is helpful in doing things in less steps and makes using the app more intuitive. But it’s not that powerful. So, it’s a bit more form over substance.
It’s not really a task manager like Omnifocus that can handle custom views and lots of nested and sub tasks, etc. Omnifocus is a bit more substance over form.
So, I use Omnifocus for work to manage hundreds of pending projects and tasks and Things 3 for my personal small checklists.
LELP2 - It’s good, wish it had daily notifications
This app is great so far, I have used it for about a week or so. I like the different types of lists and checking them off when done. Everything has worked smoothly, no issues. I wish that every morning a notification would pop up and say “hey you have 3 things added to your to do list today” or something, to help push me in the right direction. What can I say, I am trying to head in the right direction and make changes, but old habits (like, not checking a daily to do list) die hard! This, for me, would make this app a can’t live without!
Mac The Apple - Perfect balance; better than OmniFocus
Wanted something less complicated than OmniFocus to do simpler to-do tasks. Everything in OmniFocus feels like you’re planning a moon landing and it’s easy to get overwhelmed. I don’t have this issue with Things. It gives me just enough to get things (funny) off my mind, get them organized, and the calendar and reminder views are awesome. Could easily see Things replacing OmniFocus, even with OF 3 coming out.
I’d like to see themes and to be able to tap the days/weeks/months to see them more in the upcoming section

A few things I hope @StateOfDecay 3 has whenever it comes out.
1) The ability to clear road hazards, either with supplies or influence
2) Car customization
3) An option to alter time of day (shorter/longer days and vice versa)
