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

“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 :)
MORE THINGS TO LOVE
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!
• Widgets — see your lists in Notification Center.
• Mail to Things — forward an email to Things; now it’s a to-do.
• And much more!
MADE FOR MAC
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 widgets, use your Mac’s Touch Bar, import from Reminders—Things can do it all! There’s even AppleScript support if you need powerful automation.
STAY PRODUCTIVE ON THE GO
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.”

THINGS 3.14 - Re*mark*able Notes
This update is all about the *notes* inside your to-dos – and it’s a big one! Four great new features go hand in hand to elevate the note-taking experience to a whole new level:
1. Bullet Lists
2. Markdown (!)
3. Find & Replace
4. Things Cloud “Fractus”
We can’t wait for you to try it out – we think you’re going to love it!
Things now has support for writing great-looking bullet lists in your notes, and it couldn’t be easier to use. Simply type “-” followed by some text. You can also use other bullet characters like *, +, or •
As you’d expect, text that wraps to a new line is neatly indented for better readability. Editing is smart, too. When you hit Return, a new bullet is inserted. Return again escapes the list. And copy/paste automatically removes accidental “double bullets”.
You can also nest lists! Simply insert a few spaces before bullets to indent them, or use our new keyboard shortcuts: Cmd-[ and Cmd-]
As many of you requested, you can now use Markdown to structure and style your notes!
If you already know Markdown, go ahead and try it out. Things detects a wide range of commonly-used syntax and renders it in a unique blend of proportional and fixed-width fonts. It looks and feels great!
If you don’t know Markdown, here’s how it works. To emphasize a word, surround it with asterisks, like so: *emphasized*. Things will detect this and render the word in italics. If you remove the asterisks, it goes back to normal again. Here are a few more examples:
• Use two asterisks to make text **bold**.
• Use colons to ::highlight:: text.
• Insert “#” at the beginning of a line to make a heading (# My Heading).
So your notes are still plain text, like before. There are just some special characters that make the text appear in a different style. It’s a bit quirky, yes, but after using it for a while we think you’ll enjoy how easy it is to style text while you write. Give it a try!
As you’d expect, we’ve also added some great keyboard shortcuts. Find them in Edit > Markdown.
To learn more, check out the Markdown Guide on our website.
FIND TEXT IN NOTES
Things already had great full-text search across all your lists, but now you can find text just within the current note. Try it out: open a to-do and hit Shift-Cmd-F. There’s also a replace function if you need it.
THINGS CLOUD “FRACTUS”
Many of you are already taking long notes in Things and there’s no doubt this update will encourage this even more. We wanted to make sure Things Cloud is up to the task.
Introducing Things Cloud “Fractus” – our smart new method for syncing notes. Before, even a tiny change would require the *entire* note to be synced again across all your devices. But now, only the small edits themselves are transferred. This drastically improves the speed and efficiency of the sync and allows for smarter resolution of conflicts.
There’s nothing you need to do to set this up – we’ve already turned it on.
Ratings and Reviews
Good but not that customisable
This app gives you plenty of options to organise your tasks. It is great that you can set up projects within 'areas' and also have sub headings within projects (as well as checklists within tasks!). It doesn't try to assign priorities like some apps but you can assign 'tags' to tasks that can be anything you want, so you can set up your own priority system which is great. The visual look of the app is not very customisable (just light or dark) and I have found the options to display your lists of tasks limited and not customisable. I would have liked an option in the side bar to select 'all tasks' indicating whether they are 'sheduled with date' or 'anytime'. They also have the option for assigning 'anytime' or 'someday' - I find this less useful than being able to list all tasks. If you select 'any time' the tasks are grouped within projects and it only shows the first 3 tasks. You have to click 'show more' to see the others. I therefore find that there is too much clicking in and out of parts of lists without being able to quickly see the overview. Overall though this app is powerful without being complex - would highly recommend it
Mind bogglingly powerful
I am in awe of this application. Paired with Things on all my iOS devices (yeah, I'm one of those folk!), Things has really revolutionised my habits. Once upon a time I continuously put off completing tasks, and was crazy forgetful about everything. Now, I simply rely upon Things to remember for me, and to prod me into doing stuff on time.
It took a while to actually form the habit of listing my to-dos in the app, but once I started, it became almost automatic. Things has also become so beautiful over the years, especially the Dark Mode on OS X. The design and intuition that’s gone into it is stunning. I love it, and recommend it to everyone. One thing I would really like to draw attention to is the sync speed between devices – it is SO fast. I honestly don’t know how they manage it.
It's only now that I'm writing a review (something I never do!), but as a result I can vouch that Things is one of the best apps I've used over a multi-year period. To think that the team are still adding small quality of life features every now and then! I think it’s perfect already, but you can be sure they’ll think of something.
Developer Response ,
Thank you so much for this awesome review! We're thrilled to hear how much Things is helping you to keep on track, and has helped you to form good habits as well. Cheers!
Nearly Perfect for GTD
I’ve tried various apps to try to integrate my GTD (google it and read the latest - 2015 - version of David Allen’s book if you haven’t already) into my digital world. Things is for me the best - I’ve tried a lot of the others including Omnifocus, Nozbe, ToDoIst, IoS reminders. Things 3 fixes a couple of…er…things that weren’t quite there before in Things 2. Not quite perfect alignment with GTD but very close and anyway GTD can mean different things to different people. Even if you are not into GTD, Things 3 is easily the best app of this type out there. It’s well laid out, elegant and easy to use. Spend the time on keyboard shortcuts and go through the tutorials a few times so that you really know it. Definitely set it up on all your devices and sync so that you can capture stuff and review anywhere, and definitely use Siri with Things..it works a treat! I do not use Siri for anything else but somehow it’s just right with Things. I recommend Things 3 very highly!
