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.”


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!

What’s New

Version 3.15.20

• Simplified the process for integrating and syncing commands received from Siri and Shortcuts.
• Fixed a bug where selection handles might not appear when selecting text on iOS 15 and earlier.
• Fixed a crash that could occur when scrolling to reveal a newly-created project or area in the sources list.
• Fixed a crash that could occur when tapping the button for a to-do’s parent list.


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.

Editors’ Notes

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.

Helped me through a tough time

I’d already been a regular user of Things for a while, but it took on a whole new importance when my mother was hospitalised for several weeks (she’s OK!). I needed to take over looking after her home and doing her shopping, laundry, etc, while still dealing with my own stuff, and visiting the hospital every evening (a two-hour round trip). It was also my busiest time at work, so rather than taking time off, I was having to work overtime; plus, I was the only point of contact for many friends and family who wanted daily updates on how my mother was doing.

Constantly having new tasks fired at me by every part of the above, there’s no way I could have kept track without Things. Many jobs would have been overlooked if I hadn’t been able to quickly throw them into the Inbox for later prioritisation. Even though I was hugely busy and stressed, Things gave me confidence that it would store tasks for me, so I didn’t have to remember everything and could focus on what needed doing right away.

I now recommend it to everybody. I gifted it to a couple of people who were dubious about the price, and they paid me back once they realised its value.

Organise Your Streaming On Things

I have used Things for a few years now mostly for my work and was a little bit annoyed that I could not upgrade my original Things without purchasing it again. However, since I have now retired, I have found this an amazing app to keep a track of my Netflix viewing. I have set up projects of what I have watched, what is in my watchlist, things I have watched and waiting for the next series, things I have watched and have finished, things on my watch list and things I need to investigate further. I have found this to be an amazing tracking app which I would never remember in my head. This is just something I felt I needed to do for myself and thought it might help others? I also use it as my go to app to list all the events for the year ahead so I can see clearly what I need to do, need to be done. I love it and have always loved it. It is a great organiser, clear and concise. I know exactly what I need to do and when. Love the repeat function for annual events and love to see the log book to see what I have done. Worth every penny in my opinion.

Glad to hear that Things is helping you stay on top of your shows on Netflix! Enjoy!
