Things is a delightful and easy to use task manager. It’s the perfect companion for everything you want to achieve in life, offering a great balance between ease of use and powerful features.

*** Updated for macOS Sierra ***

“Things is a true standout thanks to a great set of features and an interface that makes it a good fit for nearly any level of task management: It’s simple enough to use for the most-basic to-do lists ... but it’s powerful enough to handle a full blown GTD workflow... Things offers a unique combination of ease of use, a great interface, and flexibility that sets it apart from other to-do managers I’ve used.” – Dan Frakes, Macworld, 4½ stars

“Of course, everyone has specific needs and preferences that will steer them toward a particular to-do-list program or another. But Things’ combination of ease of use, great interface, and flexibility make it as close to the ideal Mac to-do app as we’ve seen.” — Macworld

When you start using Things, you’ll be surprised how easy it is to enter and manage your tasks. And with Things’ beautiful interface, task management becomes a delight. But all of this doesn’t come at the expense of power—everything you wish for in a task manager, Things has you covered.

• Today: Decide which tasks you want to do today and put them into your Today list. Throughout the day, come back to this list to check items off. Things will automatically show you due and scheduled items there once their date arrives -- so you won’t miss anything important.

• Focus: See what you need to do Today, what’s coming up Next, and what’s Scheduled for later. Put tasks in Someday if you can’t work on them right now, you can always come back to them later.

• Keep organized: Work, Family, Hobby - with Things, everything has its place. Projects and Areas of Responsibility let you master complex tasks and stay on top of your responsibilities in life and work.

• Use Tags to assign contexts, priorities, time – whatever fits your personal workflow. Quickly filter a list to find those tasks which are most relevant now.

• Out of your head, into Things: Enter new ideas the moment they hit you. Things’ Quick Entry window lets you add new tasks without interrupting your work. And thanks to the amazing Autofill feature, the Quick Entry window can be automatically pre-filled with the currently selected text, along with a link to the email you are reading, the webpage you are currently viewing, or the document you are editing (works with most applications).

• And much more: Create repeating tasks, add due dates, schedule tasks for a later date, import Reminders, review completed tasks in the Logbook, etc.


Things also includes a Today Widget for Notification Center, Handoff support for seamless transition between Mac, iPad, iPhone, and Apple Watch, an “Add to Things” sharing extension for creating to-dos from other apps, and support for Split View and Force Touch Trackpad.


Your to-dos, on all your devices. Things Cloud is a free service that stores your to-dos and updates them quickly & effortlessly across your Mac, iPad, iPhone, and Apple Watch (apps sold separately).

Comments and Ratings for Things

Apple Watch component not functioning (2.8.4)
06/07/2016 12:04:00 3/5 By Houdeani83
A useful app that allows me to make task management simple. Unfortunately it is often too simple - the lack of subtasks is a particular feature that I miss - but otherwise it remains my ToDo app of choice. The Apple Watch component looks strong but persistently fails to synchronise with my iPhone. About once a week I will glance at the Apple Watch app and note, with surprise, that it is accurate. As a result, it is entirely unreliable and therefore useless - I hope that this gets sorted out in time for the expected WatchOS 3 update.

Good app … but (2.8.4)
12/05/2016 11:21:00 3/5 By IDevman
Things is a nicely thought out app, but does lack in some areas. Firstly it lacks the ability to export the tasks. The market appears to have moved on and left Things without this basic feature. Can I request the app should export both CSV and XML. Secondly (and I say this as a Mac user for over 20 years) there is no PC based version of the app. In today’s combined office landscape this again is a sign that the app needs to be updated. In summary, a good app but one that needs to be modernized.

Not perfect but close (2.8.3)

About a year ago I invested in Firetask, another GTD oriented task management system. It looked the best of the bunch (and affordable!) at the time. I’ve used it for many months but started to look around for another option because the sync between Mac and ios devices with Firetask was so unreliable. I decided on Things because it seemed to tick all the boxes in terms of functionality and was pretty reasonably priced. I’ve been using it about a week now and love it. Entry of items is easy, especially once you get the hang of it’s integration with siri and the native reminders app in the ios versions of the app. Moving stuff around between projects is easy enough once you get the hang of the interface. I didn’t find it immediately inutitve but am getting used to it very quickly. Sync is seamless and perfect. Open any app and bingo, everything is up to date. I can once again rely on having the correct infrmation when I need it. The ability to add links to files, emails and the like is a great feature, making it easy to access everything you need to get a task done. I like the ability to see what could be done in a given day, review what you actually want to do, and postpone other items to a future date. Searching works briliantly, especially when combined with user defined tags. One thing it lacks is a feature Firetask has allowing you to file tasks as ‘waiting for’ someone else to action. I’ve got around this by creating a custom tag and then adding details of who I’m waiting on in the notes to any relevant tasks but it is a little clunky. Being able to group projects into areas of responsibility is a good feature. I can cluster all my current client work separately from all my potential client work or see it all together, whichever suits me best. All in all I’d highly recommend this. The iphone app is £8 and the ipad app £15 so for a little over £60 you have a seamless, easy to use, powerful and useful GTD management system working across all your devices.

Functionality (2.8.3)
01/02/2016 11:08:00 3/5 By HelloWorldHello
Really dont get why, if you move an entry in things from the inbox that was created on your native reminders app it then disapears from your native calendar app? Sorry that doesn’t make any logical sense. That isn’t in my mind worth the price if you cant integrate with your mac or iPad calendar, other than that its reasnonably good as gtd app. Also don’t undersatnd why developers keep using 'b' word to describe the way the interface looks? Come on guys get real. Its just a screen, if you really want to impress us give us a dark/night mode option, please!

Beautifully simple to use - but OH SO POWERFUL (2.8.3)
28/01/2016 12:06:00 5/5 By Meditation Specialist
This helps me stay on track with what I need to do, and when I need to do it by. As a self employed 'creative type’ - with a demanding, hectic schedule, I find trying to keep track of what I should be doing gets overtaken by new incoming ideas, tasks, jobs, etc. In a nutshell, I get overwhelmed by so much stuff, that I lose focus and get derailed on completing tasks I’ve assigned for myself. This beuatiful app is helping me see the big picture, all in one place, and allows me to tailor it to be as simple or as complex as I need it depending on the tasks, jobs, projects, etc that I wish to accomplish. I am now able to achieve more, with less frustration. And I am able to use this for ALL areas of my life - personal - work - hobbies - bucket list. Highly satisfied and impressed :)

Simply Perfect! (2.8.2)
28/10/2015 15:33:00 5/5 By Shane Blanchflower
This is the only app that I have on every iDevice I own - iPad, iPhone, Apple Watch, and all three of my Macs. I cannot imagine how I kept my life and work in order before I used this. The developers listen when you offer suggestions too. This app has put order into my chaotic day.

Thoughtful and simple (2.8)
05/10/2015 08:35:00 4/5 By Marmite Turkey
It has enough functionality to be powerful, if you learn the way it thinks you should manage and review tasks. There’s room for improvement: attachments in tasks subtasks and folders perspectives and saved searches But in general I keep coming back to Things from Omnifocus because tagging is more powerful than contexts it’s simpler, more compact and less fiddly it looks great on every platform

Fantastic Piece of Software (2.5.5)
05/08/2015 10:09:00 5/5 By Chris.O.
"Things" is truly a useful piece of kit, syncing between Mac, iOS devices and my Apple Watch, I couldn’t be without it. Worth every penny and more.

Lacks modern features (2.5.4)
06/06/2015 14:06:00 3/5 By Houdeani83
When Things was first released it blew its competition out of the water. Unfortunately, it hasn't moved with the times. There are three key features lacking in this App: 1. Subtasks, or nested projects, etc. The ability to break large jobs down into smaller, manageable chunks is so rudimentary that this oversight alone should limit this App to 3 stars. When projects grow it’s not unusual to see 100+ tasks in front of you. Most could be nested in a neat hierarchy but Things insists that you spend the time laboriously tagging your tasks. Only if you put the work in will you be able to filter your list reliably. 2. Collaboration, or sharing. I want to work as a team. I want to be able to assign tasks to colleagues or to share my progress within a project so that they can better plan their own work and vice-versa. 3. iCloud Sync. Cultured Code have their own cloud syncing platform. Long term users will know that this took a long time to become reliable and this is symptomatic of what is holding Things back. Imagine how iCloud integration would simplify collaboration across diverse Apple IDs! The fact is that as Apple add features to their iCloud platform Things will be further left behind. This ignores other features that are implemented on even the simplest todo Apps - such as locations or times. This software is old now and it shows. At bottom I still like this App a lot and I stubbornly persist with it for personal tasks. This is really the purpose behind this review; I just wish Things could become the App it promises to be! In time, I suspect that this will be added to the list of Apps I’ve uninstalled.

Came across from OmniFocus 2 Pro (2.5.4)
21/05/2015 14:55:00 4/5 By Phatzer
I’ve been using OmniFocus 2 Pro for about a year now, however today I made the decision to move back over to Things. Whilst I’d really like to see Things 3 some time soon given it was some time ago that they announced it, there is something particularly pleasing about using Things over OmniFocus. To begin with Cultured Code appear to invest a great deal of time making the process of adding tasks and managing them very simple yet powerful. I do miss nested tasks from OmniFocus, however at the same time, the ability to use multiple tags in tasks and shoving most stale tasks to ‘Someday’ means it suddenly becomes very easy to priorities tasks from a big long list of various projects in one go. I also feel that in order to for OmniFocus to be as popular as it is, they do work very quickly on their applications. While this means having new features and fixes released rapidly, they appear to invest less ‘love’ in the experience of using the application(s). OmniFocus support is also second-to-none, very quick and I suspect I will miss that if I need any developer support, however on the same note, I very rarely experience glitches that get in the way of me working, so the slower (yet still good) support is less needed. I’ll probably update my review as I go along, but so far I’m finding it becoming a little more enjoyable and less stressful managing my tasks, let alone doing them!
