Product Description

Task management has never been this easy. Simplicity, however, is not achieved at the expense of powerful features. Out of your head, out of your way. A quick entry HUD lets you enter any idea the moment it hits you. Never let the thought of unfinished business distract you again. With Things for iPhone / iPod touch, take your to-dos with you no matter where you go. And we are not just talking about a simple to-do list. We've put the whole application in your pocket. Even better, it syncs seamlessly with Things on your Mac via Wi-Fi. (Things for iPhone / iPod touch is available separately on the iTunes App Store.)

I've used Things since the first week I had gotten my first MacBook Pro - back in 2009. Development faltered for a bit a couple of years ago, and I spent a lot of time and money trying out different apps like 2Do, Omnifocus, etc - as well as free ones like Wunderlist (which is a great basic task management app, especially being cross-platform, free, and heavily developed). However, Things was my first, and therefore it became the standard by which I compared every other task management app to - and they all fall short.

I don't utilize features like the "Areas of Responsibility" - I just throw tasks in my Inbox and go through them regularly to move them into "Today". That's what all the other apps offer, but somehow Things is just more fluid about it and has become my preference. iOS version has that same feel to it, and they sync together flawlessly.

Another feature I love about Things is the logbook. Whereas in Wunderlist when something gets marked done it immediately moves to the Completed folder, in Things you can see your day's to-do list in full - completed and uncompleted tasks, with a cron running to move the completed items to the logbook at midnight. I like being able to visualize my completed tasks throughout the day; it's a source of motivation to check off more things. Then the next day, I start fresh. While apps like Wunderlist and Clear do their job well - I don't always want to go for that "zero inbox" workflow (which. ironically, is how I prefer to utilize my email workflow) and would like to see my completed tasks as I work on my next items throughout the day.

Although the developers of this software do not include a user manual on their website, (no user manual comes with the software when you buy it), Things is a good program. I just wish the developers would put an electronic user guide/manual. It would make the lives of people like me who have a business to run easier. I do not have the time to figure out the ins and outs of a software.

Best task manager on the market (STILL). I use it on my Ipad and Iphone. Hell, I'd use it on my AppleTV if they offered it. The MAC version is essential as you can push tasks from your inbox and day to day right into Things and it will sync through the Things cloud to your Iphone and Ipad. Well worth the money. Buying it here will save you about $20 vs getting it in the iTunes App Store.

Now that Things syncs via the cloud, I regard it as the finest task management software in all christendom, IF you live in an Apple-centric environment (Mac, iPhone, iPad). And believe me, I've tried 'em all. The most direct competitor for Things is OmniFocus, which is also an outstanding app. In fact, I was about ready to migrate to Omnifocus because I'd grown tired of Things only doing Sync's over WiFi. OmniFocus is perhaps a bit more powerful, but it is also more complicated with a steeper learning curve. I felt the simplicity of Things trumped the power of OmniFocus.
Anyway, just about the time I was going to pull the plug on Things and switch to OmniFocus, Cultured Code announced the new Cloud-sync version of Things. I couldn't be happier with it now. It's clean, simple, yet very powerful. Yes, it is pricey, but you get what you pay for. This is an extremely elegant program. I especially like the fact that when you schedule something in the future, that task doesn't show its face again until the date it's scheduled. There's nothing more depressing than staring at a zillion tasks, most of which you can't act on until the future. I only want to see them when they're relevant.
I use Things in conjunction with Evernote. Things handles my tasks, while Evernote I use for lists and reference material. The combination works phenomenally well, and I see no need to use anything else. BTW, the iPad app is fantastic (although I probably use Things on my iPhone more than anywhere else).

Well done, Cultured Code
