—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 :)

WIND DOWN — iPhone
As bedtime draws near, your iPhone can help you close out the day and make sure you’re ready for tomorrow.

The ever-present Magic Plus button makes it easy to add to-do’s 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.
I am kinda mad that I did not buy it earlier.
After trying several todo apps over the years, I finally broke down and bought Things 3. I am kinda mad that I did not do it earlier.
I have used many todo apps over the years but have always ended up with unusable clutter. Separating my lists by app for work and personal did not help much either since that meant having that many more apps on my phone. Each just ended up in a folders like Productivity and Work apps which meant 2 taps to get to an app to see what needed to be done next. Since they did not integrate my calendar I had to check both the todo apps and calendar to see what was going on on a given day. In short, that doesn’t work and I still had the challenge of balancing my home and work responsibilities with just my brain. That is needlessly stressful and every few months I would look for yet another way to solve the problem.
I balked at spending even more money on yet another todo app but I had heard good things about Things for years so I finally took the plunge on the iPhone. I transferred all my lists from other apps and deleted them so that Things 3 would have a prominent place on my home screen. Several months in and I love it! One place to see everything including my color coded calendars and now I own it on iPad and Mac! Less stress, so happy!
