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 Find — instantly locate to-dos, headings, or tags.
• Type Travel — jump from list to list with your keyboard; just start typing!
• Magic Plus — drag the + button to insert to-dos anywhere in a list.
• Share extension — create to-dos with content from other apps.
• Widgets — see your lists on the home screen.
• Mail to Things — forward an email to Things; now it’s a to-do.
• And much more!


Things is tailored to the iPad, with excellent pro features as well. Chief among them is the outstanding support for your keyboard & trackpad. You can edit your to-dos without touching the screen, utilize plenty of shortcuts, and navigate your lists at blistering speed—just start typing!

“Things has the best implementation of external keyboard support I’ve ever seen in an iPad app.”
—Federico Viticci, MacStories

You can also enjoy a beautiful dark mode at sunset, connect your calendars, add widgets to your home screen, scribble with Apple Pencil, open multiple windows, create to-dos via Siri, import from Reminders—Things can do it all! There’s even Shortcuts integration if you want to automate your workflows.


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.”

What’s New

Version 3.15.13

• General performance improvements in lists.
• Big performance improvements when logging into Things Cloud; in particular for users with many repeating to-dos.
• Big performance improvements when deleting many to-dos at once, or large projects containing many to-dos.
• Fixed a bug where creating to-dos via keyboard in Upcoming could fail if the selected item was a repeating template in the Waiting state.
• Fixed a visual glitch that could occur when using the tab key to indent a code block.
• Small tweaks for the Italian translation.
• Various smaller improvements under the hood.


This update accompanied our big 3.15 update for Mac, bringing universal support for Apple Shortcuts – plus wide-reaching performance improvements, support for international keyboard layouts, and more.


Things for Mac now integrates with Apple’s Shortcuts app! It works just like it does on your iPhone and iPad, so any shortcuts you create will simply work on your Mac as well. (Requires macOS 12 Monterey.)


Over the past months we’ve put a ton of work into improving performance. This involved a massive unification of Mac & iOS code and a redefinition of how lists operate under the hood. The resulting speed boost will be most noticeable for those with very large databases and many projects, but the app will be generally snappier for everyone.

There were also a few situations where Things would behave differently on Mac & iOS. As an added benefit, our work on code unification eliminates such quirks, providing a more consistent experience across devices.


With the release of iPadOS 15 and macOS 12 Monterey, keyboard shortcuts can adapt to your specific keyboard layout. Apple’s own apps have adopted this behavior on iPad and Mac, and we’ve now built it into Things.

If you have a US keyboard, your shortcuts won’t change. On non-US layouts, shortcuts involving letters will mostly stay the same. Shortcuts involving special characters will now be easier to type, and some that were previously impossible to use can now be typed for the first time!

To see the new shortcuts for your keyboard layout:
• On iPad, hold down the Cmd key.
• On Mac, simply browse the app’s menu or go to Help > Keyboard Shortcuts.

Everyone needs a task manager—and Things is adaptable enough for anyone. This Apple Design Award winner is crisp and lightweight, featuring a simple but effective interface. The ever-present Magic Plus button makes it easy to add to-do’s from anywhere in the app, and organising items is as simple as dragging them where you want them. It’s like the unicorn of productivity tools: deep enough for serious work, surprisingly easy to use and gorgeous enough to enjoy staring at.

Hochverdiente 5 Sterne

Eins vorweg: die App ist aus meiner Sicht keineswegs ohne Mängel. Das Fehlen ortsbasierter Erinnerungen ist ein echtes Manko und behindert die Nutzbarkeit für meine Anwendungsfälle stark, zumal andere 3rd Party Apps wie z.B. Buy Me a Pie zeigen dass eine gute und brauchbare Umsetzung keineswegs nur im Umfeld der Apple-eigenen Apps möglich ist.

Dennoch kann ich nicht anders als 5 Sterne zu vergeben. Denn alles, was diese App gemäß Featurelist verspricht, hält sie deutlich mehr als zufriedenstellend ein. Den simplifizierenden Ansatz finde ich äußerst angenehm und finde hier alles, was ich für effizientes terminbasiertes Task Management brauche. Synchronisation der Tasks und Umsetzung des plattformübergreifenden App-Erlebnisses auf iOS, macOS und insbesondere auch watchOS sind aus meiner Sicht richtig gut gelungen und besser als alle Alternativen, die ich bisher hatte. Daher für mich - trotz des hohen Preises - definitiv den Preis wert.
Empfehlung: da gerade die macOS Version sehr teuer ist, die kostenlose Trial-Phase vor dem Kauf nutzen!

Inzwischen optimal!

Things ist in der derzeitigen Form der mit Abstand beste Taskmanager und auf der Verwalter für iPhone, iPad und iMac. Synchronisation klappt hervorragend, schnell und zuverlässig, das Programm ist es grafisch gut gemacht, bietet genau die Features, die man zur Erledigung täglicher, wiederkehrende oder geplante Aufgaben braucht, bietet die perfekte Strukturierung dieser Aufgaben nach verschiedenen Themengebieten, und ist gleichzeitig nicht mit Funktionen überfrachtet, die sowieso niemand möchte.

Die mit Sicherheit derzeit beste App für dieses Anwendungsgebiet. Fünf Sterne ohne wenn und aber, trotz des relativ hohen Preises, wenn man es auf mehreren Geräten benutzen will, jeden Euro wert.
