Don’t hesitate on this one
I have used a lot of productivity apps and trust me when I say this is the absolute best! I remember paying a lot of money for the iPhone and Mac app a couple of years ago but that’s how determined I was to organize my life. It took a lot of trial and error to learn the best way for me to use the features but the practice paid off! I accomplished 80% of my New Years resolutions, planned for trips and debt payoffs, accomplished big personal projects and I can’t forget about the ever important inbox. This app is so simple and intuitive but far reaching in its capabilities. As a disclaimer I will say it took me about a year with this app to reach the point where I can use it easily and successfully. A lot of it was learning to use the app, and a lot of it was practicing weekly planning period (even if I chose to use a different method). I kept searching for other apps that would make me want to use it more but once I realized this one was best for me I really dove into using it. My favorite feature is the whole reminder system - it keeps me on track with everything so I don’t have to remember so much!

Soooo much better than the reminders app
They didn’t even ask me for a review, I felt compelled because it’s just a great app. This app makes organizing literally any personal project, ongoing or one-time, very easy. It’s simple yet customizable if/when/where I need. I have one “project” as a shopping list and one as a to-do list. Every time I think “wouldn’t it be great if this app did X”, X is always there and easy to do. Like the ability to repeat tasks on a custom interval, specifying whether that interval is regularly repeating or measured from the time of last completion. The latter is the default, which is usually good if you don’t care... but if you do care, the option is there, and it’s easy to do. It’s just little stuff like that. Take it from a software developer, getting those little things right is not easy

Enjoying it so far, great design
Lives up to the idea that a product is perfect not when there is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take away. In this case, taking away is more about how things hides all unnecessary distractions away from the user to make the app experience both easy and comfortable. There's plenty of functionality built in though, it's just not all up in your face. My only gripe, which I might even change my mind on anyway, is that there isn't a way to speed add tasks (having the cursor jump back up to the input field after you hit enter). So far this seems like not a big issue, and I actually kinda like that feature being gone because it slows you down as a user and requires you to be a bit more mindful and intentional with your plans. Great app 👍
*** APPLE DESIGN AWARD WINNER 2017 *** Meet the all-new Things! A complete rethinking of the original, award-winning task manager – with a perfect balance between simplicity and power, incredible new features, delightful interactions, and a timeless new design. HERE'S HOW THINGS WORKS If you're new to Things, this is the basic workflow: 1. Collect Your Thoughts Get things off your mind quickly with Things’ action extension – it lets you create to-dos from other apps. Or just talk to Siri on any device (“Remind me to...”) and import from Reminders. 2. Get Organized Create a project for each of your goals, then add the steps to reach them. For clarity, add structure with headings. Then group your projects by areas of responsibility, such as “Family”, “Work”, or “Health”. Review these regularly to stay on top of things. 3. Plan Your Time See your calendar events alongside your to-dos and plan your time effectively. Create repeating to-dos for things you do every few days, weeks, or months – Things will remind you on the right day. 4. Make the Most of Your Day Every morning, grab a coffee and prepare your list for “Today”: review previously planned to-dos and make quick decisions on what to tackle. Pick some more steps from your projects and then get going. The Today list is the only place you’ll need to look for the rest of the day. 5. Customize Your Workflow Use tags to categorize your to-dos or add context. For example, tag places like “Office” or “Home”, or tag all your “Errands”, or everything you’re working on with “Kate”. You can easily find everything you’ve tagged via filtering or search. HERE'S WHY WE THINK YOU'LL LOVE THINGS 1. It stays out of your way. As you start using Things, you’ll quickly notice how seamlessly all the features fit together to give you an uncluttered, focused experience. There are no unnecessary frills. No pointless gimmicks or useless controls. In fact, you’ll hardly notice the app – it’s just you and your to-dos. 2. Everything revolves around your to-dos. In Things, each of your to-dos are special. In a list, they simply show a checkbox and the title of your to-do. But when you open them, they extend into a beautiful white piece of paper that’s ready to hold your thoughts. Additional details (checklists, tags, reminders, deadline) are nicely tucked away in the corner until you need them. 3. It’s got a touch of magic. Things removes friction in magical ways. Take the new Magic Plus Button that lets you insert to-dos at any place in a list – simply via drag and drop. Or the ease at which you can multi-select and operate on many to-dos at once. Or the natural language date parser: just type “tomorrow”, “in 4 days", or “next Wednesday", and it will jump to all the right conclusions. 4. It’s got all the power of iOS. Things is fully integrated with all the latest iOS technologies: Apple Watch, Calendars, Siri & Reminders, Today Widget, Quick Actions, Action Extension, Handoff, and Notifications. 5. And much more... Everyone's got their favorite feature, it's impossible to list them all. See what our users love about Things – visit our website at: thingsapp.com WHAT’S NEW?
