Things is simple enough for everyone to use and get productive, without having a steep learning curve.

What is it about?

Things is a flexible and powerful task manager for those who don't necessarily need something complex and robust. While it is simple compared to some of the competition, it still has useful features that make the fans keep coming back to the app. The app is fairly powerful for the average person, and there is no steep learning curve like Omnifocus. Plus, Cultured Code's syncing service is seamless, as it happens in the background and you never notice it.

For those who...

  • Things can be utilized by just about anyone who needs to get things done.

Not for those who...

  • If you’re already committed to another task manager, you might want to think twice about utilizing Things. The app doesn’t offer a way to import tasks, which means you’ll have to start from scratch.

Why we love it

If you you’re constantly getting bogged down by all of your tasks, download Things today. It does a wonderful job of divvying up your tasks in order to help you get them done on time.

When you start using Things, you’ll be surprised how easy it is to enter and manage your tasks. And with Things’ beautiful interface, task management becomes a delight. But all of this doesn’t come at the expense of power—everything you wish for in a task manager, Things has you covered.

• Today: Decide which tasks you want to do today and put them into your Today list. Throughout the day, come back to this list to check items off. Things will automatically show you due and scheduled items there once their date arrives - so you won’t miss anything important.

• Focus: See what you need to do Today, what’s coming up Next, and what’s Scheduled for later. Put tasks in Someday if you can’t work on them right now, you can always come back to them later.

• Keep organized: Work, Family, Hobby - with Things, everything has its place. Projects and Areas of Responsibility let you master complex tasks and stay on top of your responsibilities in life and work.

• Use Tags to assign contexts, priorities, time – whatever fits your personal workflow. Quickly filter a list to find those tasks which are most relevant now.

• Out of your head, into Things: Enter new ideas the moment they hit you. Adding to-dos is always just a tap away.

• And much more: Create repeating tasks, add due dates, schedule tasks for a later date, review completed tasks in the Logbook, etc.


Things for iPad includes new Slide Over & Split View multi-tasking support; new keyboard shortcuts; a Today Widget in Notification Center for quick access to your to-dos; Handoff support for seamless transition between Mac, iPad, iPhone, and Apple Watch; an “Add to Things” extension for creating to-dos from other apps; and Push Sync with Background Refresh to keep to-dos up-to-date even while the app isn’t running.


Your to-dos, on all your devices. Things Cloud is a free service that stores your to-dos and updates them quickly & effortlessly across your Mac, iPad, iPhone, and Apple Watch (apps sold separately).
