Get things done! The award-winning Things app helps you plan your day, manage your projects, and make real progress toward your goals.

Best of all, it’s easy to use. Within the hour, you’ll have everything off your mind and neatly organized—from routine tasks to your biggest life goals—and you can start focusing on what matters today.

“Things offers the best combination of design and functionality of any app we tested, with nearly all the features of other power user applications and a delightful interface that never gets in the way of your work.”
—Wirecutter, The New York Times


• Your To-Dos
Your basic building block is the almighty To-Do—each a small step toward a great accomplishment. You can add notes, tag it, schedule it, and break it down into smaller steps.

• Your Projects
Create a Project for any big goal, then add the to-dos to reach it. Use headings to structure your list as you outline your plan. There’s also a place to jot down your notes, and a deadline to keep you on schedule.

• Your Areas
Create an Area for each sphere of your life, such as Work, Family, Finance, and so on. This keeps everything neatly organized, and helps you see the big picture as you set your plans in motion.

• Your Plan
Everything on your schedule is neatly laid out in the Today and Upcoming lists, which show your to-dos and calendar events. Each morning, see what you planned for Today and decide what you want to do. The rest is down to you :)


As you dive deeper, you’ll find Things packed with helpful features. Here are just a few:

• Reminders — set a time and Things will remind you.
• Repeaters — automatically repeat to-dos on a schedule you set.
• This Evening — a special place for your evening plans.
• Calendar integration — see your events and to-dos together.
• Tags — categorize your to-dos and quickly filter lists.
• Quick Entry — create to-dos from anywhere, as soon as the thought hits you.
• Quick Find — instantly locate to-dos, headings, or tags.
• Type Travel — jump from list to list with your keyboard; just start typing!
• Mail to Things — forward an email to Things; now it’s a to-do.
• And much more!


Things is tailored to the Mac with deep system integrations as well. A great example is Quick Entry with Autofill: a shortcut that grabs content from other apps and adds it to Things for you, such as a link to a website or an email you want to get back to.

You can also enjoy a beautiful dark mode at sunset, connect your calendars, enable a Things widget, use your Mac’s Touch Bar, import from Reminders—Things can do it all! There’s even AppleScript support if you need powerful automation.


Things has full-featured apps for iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch as well (sold separately). All your devices sync seamlessly via our free Things Cloud service. It’s great to have everything at your fingertips when you need it!


Made in Stuttgart, with two Apple Design Awards to its name, Things is a fine example of German engineering: designed, not only to look fantastic, but to be perfectly functional as well. Every detail is thoughtfully considered, then polished to perfection.

“It’s like the unicorn of productivity tools: deep enough for serious work, surprisingly easy to use, and gorgeous enough to enjoy staring at.”


Whatever it is you want to accomplish in life, Things can help you get there. Install the app today and see what you can do!

Things+Fantastical much better for me than Reminders+Fantastical

I’ve been using Things now for a few months on my iMac, iPad, iPhone and Watch. Can’t say enough good about it. Greatly simplifies staying on top of our busy life. I would have never thought of this workflow these folks came up with, but once I got onto it Things fits like a glove into my daily routine and those times when routine goes out the window.

I had been trying for a long time to use Reminders with Fantastical to manage tasks across my Macs, iPad, iPhone and Apple Watch. It worked, but not nearly as smoothly as I hoped. After studying Things 3 and thinking hard about the combined price (not cheap), I took the plunge and installed the apps on all my devices. It only took me an hour or two to get the concept.

I am not big on project management, but keeping separate lists for things like Shopping, Woodworking, Work, Club, etc *IS* minimalist project management, so I decided to do it right. Things 3 is Get It Done level of project management, which is what I need in my life. I don’t need heavy project management software.

The heirarchy is Areas/Projects/To-dos/Checklists. Tags cut across all of them for an added layer of control, if desired. Initially I was hung up on the fact that at setup Things imports reminders from Reminders and then deletes them in that app. But in the end it all made sense. I now run Things together with Fantastical: Things for reminders/project management and Fantastical for calendars. Neat that I can click on a task in Things and drag it to a date in Fantastical, where it copies as an event. I couldn’t drag reminders from Reminders into Things, but copy and paste into the Reminders list that I set to import to Things worked fine, then I simply stopped using the Reminders app. Adding a reminder using Siri puts it into the Reminders app, then Things asks if it can import the reminder, which is nice because it provides options.

Verdict: I am glad that I made the switch. Things 3 is far more intuitive and useful for managing tasks than Reminders or Fantastical. It really does make managing tasks a pleasure.

Disclosure: Just a very longtime computer user, from DOS to iOS. I have no affiliation with the developer except as a customer. I’ve tried all kinds of to-do/PIM software over many years.

Though expensive, an excellent app - Truely near perfect in design.

If you don’t care much beyond the basics, use Apple’s default “Notes” app, it works great, you can even do checkboxes.
If you are looking for the best todo list, and the design of it is important to you, you will want Things for Mac and probably iOS as well.
The deisgn of this app is really near perfect. I am extreamly picky, and critical of design, and I have nothing, or almost nothing to complain about with Things 3.

This app is pricey, especially if you want it on your iPhone and iPad as well, but it is very good.
There are other solutions, but if you want the best, and don’t mind paying for that designed experience, get Things 3.

Do not purchase this app without some thought

Way overpriced. Look beyond the bells and whistles - it is nothing more than a confusing, poorly designed to-do list. There are lots you can get for free that do all this app can do. Sure, it’s nice to employ their many employees. But maybe it’s better to use your hard earned cash to purchase apps that are easy to use, worth the money, make your life better, hav eearned your respect. Before purchasing this app please - for your own sake - try the free or low cost ones. No doubt like many I regreted the cost within a week of paying for this app.

Sorry to hear that you aren't enjoying Things! If you know within a week of purchasing an app that it's not right for you, you can request a refund from Apple. Hope you find something that suits your needs!
