Things App Review

What is Things?

Things is a macOS and iOS app for task management, known for its excellent design and usability. Things is one of the best productivity and to-do list apps in Apple’s ecosystem. While the app doesn’t offer true collaboration features, you can share your Things account with one person and work on all your lists together.

This app allows you to create a project for each of your goals, create to-dos from other apps, see your calendar events alongside your to-dos, and use tags to categorize your goals. Things developers frequently release updates that add new features and fix existing bugs, and the excellent rating of the app says that they’re doing a great job.

Things comes with a high entry price, but as one of the best planners and to do list managers in the business, you might find it’s worth it - and it has an excellent Apple Watch app. Get your messy life organized and always know what you need to do next, right from your wrist.

With dynamic notifications you can interact with, complications for watch faces, and an Apple Watch layout that’s both clear and informative, it really is a textbook example of how to do an Apple Watch app. Notes and commands can be dictated via voice, too.

The interface is sleek and the workflow is smart, helping you collect thoughts and plan your time efficiently. The app’s core is to-dos, but it allows you to add context, such as the time, date or location that you plan to carry the task out. Things 3 then populates a Today view with the day’s tasks (cleverly grouping things you do at home under a This Evening heading), and puts later tasks in an Upcoming list.

The finer points of the app’s design and interactions make it a joy to use. Animations are subtle, but colors are bold. Clever details are dotted about, like the ability to position a new entry by dragging the to-do button to a list.

Things isn’t cheap – especially if you also buy it on iPad and Mac – but the potential time savings make it good value.

Is Things free?

Things costs $9.99 on the iPhone. Things costs $19.99 for iPad.

Is Things better than Todoist?

Both the task manager apps have nailed the basics with different but useful features. Things 3 has a better UI and due to a one-time payment option, it’s cheaper than Todoist in the long run. Todoist offers superior sharing and collaboration features and project management functions compared to rivals.

We would recommend Things for individuals and Todoist for either advanced users or teams.
