Description

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


KEY FEATURES

• 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 :)

What’s New

Version 3.14.2

• Fixed a bug that could prevent the editing of checklist items.
• Fixed a bug that could cause undo to fail in some cases.


THINGS 3.14 - *Remarkable* 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 in Text
4. Things Cloud “Fractus”

We can’t wait for you to try it out – we think you’re going to love it!


BULLET LISTS

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-]


MARKDOWN

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 added some great keyboard shortcuts on both Mac and iPad. On iOS, you can also double-tap a word to select it, then tap “Aa” and choose a style from the popover.

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, tap “•••” then “Find in Text”. There’s also a shortcut: Shift-Cmd-F.


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.

Editors’ Choice

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-dos from anywhere in the app, and organizing 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.

Nifty Little App

A little history on myself. I have been away from GTD apps for quite a while. The last app I used and paid for was Omni Focus and fell out of favor with that app due to its complexity. I never could buy in to its way of organization. I had tried things at that time (still in version 1 I believe) and the app just did not work the way that I wanted it to.
Now comes present time. I finally grew tired of the limitations of the stock reminders app and did some extensive research on a few of them. Read many blogs on strengths and weakness of all of them. I think when it comes down to all GTD apps there really is no best app. So do your own research.
What I love about this app is its powerful simplicity. I never realized how much more organization things 3 brought to the table but yet look so clean. Is it perfect, no but neither is any other app.
Things 3 can certainly use some upgrades. Alexa integration would be on the top of my list. Apple’s Siri speaker when it comes out is still not feasible given the price. One of the other simpler changes is eliminating the three dots for more options at the bottom of the todo list. iPad has plenty of screen real estate to show all the options without the additional button press.
Things 3 is well written app that works as it should. I have not come across any annoyances just yet but I am only a fews days in to the app but enjoying it very much.

My go-to task manager for almost a decade

I’ve been using things since the days of the first iPhone and iPad. I have tried countless todo apps over the years and always co,e back to Things. As a developer, a project manager, and an artist I have used a lot of task tracking and project management methodologies including Agile and scrum and Things still is number one not because it’s a better system than kanban but because it’s easier to stick to.

As far as kanban boards versus an app like Things, I would say one needs both. Things is great for both task management and projects but is lacking when it comes to things like attachments and sharing assignments between people. That said, I have both Things and Trello and for years I have been starting Trello projects but never finish them unless I’m collaborating with others while I’m always checking and using Things.

Pro-tip: if you start to find your todos are piling up, the list keeps growing, and it feels like you’re getting nothing done then you probably need to either delete the tasks that you keep putting off or move them into the Someday category. Momentum is the name of the game here and not ticking off tasks regularly will kill anyone’s motivation and then you stop using the app. No amount of reminders and push notifications will save you from yourself.
