Things 3 Отзывы пользователей

Basically perfect

Can’t ask for any more from a task manager. This has all the flexibility, extensions, and power to handle ANY individual’s workflow. If you can afford this app, it really is the best that money can buy! Hopefully will see good dark mode support in MacOS Mojave

Needs to add some basic enhancements to be worth the price

I’ve been using Things for a year, and I find myself continually reverting back to using Evernote for my to-do lists because Things is lacking a few *basic* things that would be absolute game-changers to the UX: - Select multiple to-dos and add tags. Really not sure why this isn’t already a feature. Instead you have to click on each to-do individually to add tags, which is very time-consuming. - Adding Priority. I really want to be able to look at my “Today” and see what is the most important task for me that day, it’s impossible to see that with the tags as-is, since the tags cannot be differentiated well (by color, for example). - Text modifications in notes. The notes feature is TOO basic. You can’t even bold text, let alone add hyperlinks or attach files. It would also be great if you could add notes to specific sections in a project, not just to the project as a whole. Sad to say I feel like I wasted my money for a beautiful app (for desktop and iOS) that just isn’t delivering on some basics. Might have to start looking for a different To-Do app if these features aren’t added soon.

Things Gets Things Done and more...

Having tried Todoist, Asana and others which proved to be either a longer learning curve or just to complex for a simple guy like me, I decided once more to try out a new app that might serve as a platform for GTD (Getting Things Done by David Allen) and can happily say THIS IS IT!!! Up and running quickly I immediately found it offering so much interactive functions with my calendar and Siri, it quickly both imported my reminders and notes and imported them as well so now everything is in one place, easily accessible in my iMac, MacBook Air and my iPhone with just a command or touch of a button and delightfully simple to use yet complete enough to both capture my thoughts, lists, and projects and organizes them with recognizable headers and easy to move list items to other headers when needed. Has all the “repeatable” functions and more. I have share this with another GTD enthusiast and he has found it just as I have. I do recommend that if you are or are not a GTD practitioner, you check out David Allen’s podcast (EP:1) to get an “under the hood apreciation of what THINGS 3 can do for your life. It is not really a time manager but a “space manager” so you end up with more space in your mind so to speak accomplish the things you want. I know this sounds a bit strange or zen-like, but that is precisely what it is.

Best To-Do App for Me

I come from the GTD Methodology, and I’ve tried possibly dozens of apps like these, and for me this is the best one out there. The simplicity, but power, and overall cleannliness and GUI that looks as if Apple themselves designed it - it all works very well and makes me excited to get things done!

Lacks major functions, looks clean.

Cons! No collaboration feature for projects/Lists (shocking) Not even read-only live sharing of lists Its designed to be used by only one person Price is high (IMO) for the set of features offered Costs $49.99 + $19.99 + $9.99 for 1 person to use on iphone, ipad and mac. Pro Clean design Stable, reliable over time Mac version has a trial option

Incredible Productivity Booster

Things is an incredible product. Best task/life management app ever. You, dear reader, should get this app. Just visit their website to see all the features jammed into it, and you can get a free trial of it as well.

I've used all the rest, this one is the best - Things 3.0

I probably have used 20 other task management apps in both Mac OS and iOS. Nothing comes close to Things 3.0. It deploys with advanced features nested according to your skill level. It has the ability to be as sophisticated as you want, but at the same time it can be used with the utmost efficiency for the simplest of needs.

Couldn’t be better! I love this app

Hands down, this is my favorite task manager. It’s so intuitive to use. Excellent!

Productivity at its best, with room for improvement

Honestly, I would give Things a 4.5 rating, but since that’s not possible, I went with a 5.0 because for the most part, it has everything you need for lists. Things has helped get my work and life checklists together so that I can utilize my time as productively as possible. It’s simplicity is helpful in getting set up when you first start using the app. And then once you’ve gotten a feel for how you want to organize everything, you can begin using more of it’s more advanced features. I’ve been raving about it so much over the past few months that my boss even downloaded it so that he can start using it. If you make the most of the app, it’ll definitely help with projects and tasks, whether it’s for work or general life things. But again, it’s only going to be helpful if you continuously use it. There are a couple of things that I do wish the app had available. For example, similar to tags, I wish there was an option to color code to-do’s, as well as a way to select projects to show up in a master list (i.e. for the Today list, I would like to be able to select certain projects to be listed rather than everything tagged for Today as I have both personal and work things that I’d like to keep separate), and lastly the ability to send a project to another person with the app so that it will show up as a project not a plain text file. I also wish that the “Someday” option wasn’t part of the “When” feature and more on the “Due” feature. For ongoing projects, I like the idea of a “Someday” due date, but I’d like it to show up in my “Today” list as well. Otherwise, I don’t remember to work on it during free time. But as a whole, the program has excellent features that can be utilized when creating a new area or project, but depending on your personal preferences, it may or may not have the specific add-ons that you would like. While I do think there’s room for improvement, as a basic “To Do” list, it has everything you need to get going.

Collaboration?

I love Things, it’s gorgeous and functional. My only ask is for the ability to collaborate with others and assign team tasks that everyone can see and interact with. It’s 2018, everything is collaborative today. If my Things 3 allows me to coordinate task management with others, I’ll rate it 5 stars all day long!

Excellent app for GTDers!

I use it in combination with GTD’s best practices. I use it with Mindnode to branstorm them copy the tasks. The calendar could be improved. However, it’s worth the investment on both iOS and Mac OS. The tags are excellent. I love that I can print the filtered tasks.

Yup. It’s a good one!

Works perfectly with my style of task management. They’ve thought about everything. Truly great. I would like to request for one freature in the future: adding a timer which you can enable when you start a task. I usually do it manually, and find it to be a great productivity tool. Overall, thanks for a great app!

Great on so many levels

The best To Do app I’ve ever used. I was resigned to the idea that I wouldn’t find one that met my needs, but this one is hitting home run after home run. It’s built on the right task principles. It’s robust, but simple enough to be used when the pressure is on. So many details beautifully thought out, as well. I stopped my work to write this review because I found that I could copy the bullet items from one checklist to another one with ease. That’s one of so many simple refinements that have caused me to smile since I started using the app about a month ago. So glad to have found this app!

Love it but…...

I recently purchased this app for all my devices (iPad Pro, iMac, and Iphone X) after reading all the reviews and despite concerns Cultured Code had been (seemingly) very slow in updating the app. I love the app but there is one major drawback. The drawback is so major in my opinion, I had to deduct 2 stars because it is driving me crazy and I may have to switch back to one of the previous apps I used. Otherwise, this is the killer task app- period, and I have owned them all. The specific drawback to this app is this: You cannot complete recurring tasks ahead of schedule. So, for example, I keep a running list of all expenses that must be paid by (not on) a certain date. Sometimes I will have down time and cash flow that allows me to pay expenses ahead of schedule (due date). Well, you simply cannot do this with things. Every other app I have used allows you to do this. For some reason, Things will not allow it. I searched the Internet for hours seeking a resolution or work around. Apparently, I am not the only one with this issue. I tweeted and Things was kind enough to tell me they are working on a resolution. But until then, this is the only thing keeping me from rating this app 5 stars.

Exceptional Time Management Tool

I have only been using this app for about two weeks but interface, native tools and ability to integrate with other apps is exceptional. It really helps break down and manage larger projects or goals and allows integrations of calendar information in order to see all upcoming tasks, appointments, deadlines, etc. in a single view. I would like to request the ability to 'collapse' notes throughout the app. For example if I create a new project and have a large note to add under the Area/Project name I would like the ability to 'collapse' the note so that I don't have to scroll to the bottom of the note before I see my first Project Heading or first To-Do. Thanks in advance!

Clean design, lots of functionality, intuitive

This is a great design. It looks sleek yet packs a lot of functionality. It has everything to enable a GTD workflow and never gets in the way. As a former Things 2 and OmniFocus 2 user, I love this app

Perfect balance of tools and minimalism

Task management apps are plentiful. It makes finding the right one very difficult. I personally went through dozens of task and to-do checklist apps before I found Things. And it was a year later when my usage had continued to increase that I knew it was the one. Things gives you just the right about of freedom and tools to do what you want, without ever feeling overwhelmed with options. The keyboard shortcuts on the Mac version make it indespensible. It’s the perfect companion to the iPhone app, which I use regularly. It’s integration with Siri is fantastic. Well worth the price! And no subscription fees, which is a BIG selling point for me.

Excellent app

Update; the crashes I was experiencing seem to have been resolved in 3.6. I'm very happy! All the superlatives are true: the app is both gorgeous and a pleasure to use. But on a daily basis, it strangely stops recording input. Items are duplicated. The animation for checking an item off is immediately reversed. The controls to move an item around have no effect. If you switch away to another page and back, the display appears to be fixed. Then it crashes, and anything you've entered since the beginning of the day is lost. I've tried pre-emptively quitting when it starts behaving strangely, but the data is still lost. I find it very strange, because I also use it at home and haven't experienced a quarter of the problems as on my work machine. I wonder if the difference is that I don't use Things Cloud at work, as I do with my personal items. Regardless, I may have to switch to another app for work todos. I'm not sure I can trust Things anymore.

Couldn’t run my business without it!

This App is Amazing. It makes it so easy to add tasks, set reminders, categorize by “tags”, create projects - all without seeming clunky or to time consuming. I highly recomend it to anyone and everyone. If I could give it more than 5 stars I would.

Good, pricey

I use this and it’s good at what it does but, considering its simplicity and role, I find the pricing quite high and annoying — $50 for the desktop, then an additional $10 for your phone, then an additional $20 for your iPad. If nothing else the $50 fee should cover all three platforms. And of course if you work across various devices then you won’t be getting this app’s full functionality or realizing all of its benefits if you restrict yourself to just one version. Also, in my workplace universe, which includes using the likes of Airtable, Basecamp, etc, Things fits into my personal workflow quite well, but it’s pricing sticks out. I know it’s a bit of apples to oranges comparing Things to the others, but considering the breadth and depth of operations they offer compared to the rather straightforward role of Things, something seems off with the cost. I’m in and it’s part of my workflow now so I won’t be walking away, but in retrospect I might have been OK without ever using it. Tough to say. If you think you need something like this, it’s a good solution. But if Apple’s “Reminders” or something else is mostly doing the trick for you already, then I'd keep walking.

Crashes on open

I love this app. My favorite to do list app by far. But recently every time I open it, it immediately crashes. All other apps work fine, so it isn't my mac. Please fix!

Buggy app

Since upgrading to 3.6: 1. The product still crashes DAILY 2. The sorting of tasks on the Today view doesn’t match the sorting inside the project itself - the support team is aware of this issue but refuses to recognize it as a bug 3. The tasks on the Today view duplicate at the start of every day - the support team acknowledges this bug, and hasn’t fixed it yet I’m curious what they did actually fix in this version? I’m continually disappointed with version 3 as a result of these issues.

It is a good application when it doesn’t crash

It crashes on various Macs with the latest Mac OS far too often and I lose my already written input. I send bug reports every time. This is not the quality I would expect for this price.

Task Display Due Date

I like Thngs 3 for its simplicity and the authors have bought a new “headings” component into project displays that allows for a deeper layering or grouping of tasks under a project. It could be used as “subproject” if desired. My complaint is that in the today list, there are no due date listings. Thus, a task that regularly repeats and was missed some days back will show as a duplicated title of the task in the today list. Even opening the task reveals no indication of when it was originally due. Both the current day task and the missed task merely say due today. That should be simple to correct for the authors of Things and would provide needed information for the users. For now, I must subtract a star.

Well designed, useful app

I’ve been a staunch supporter of The Hit List ever since I first migrated to the Mac in 2009. Unfortunately, progress on that app (and it’s iOS counterpart) have stagnated under the new ownership. As much as I love THL, I’ve been eyeing potential replacements and I think I’ve found it with Things 3. Things 3 has almost all of the features I loved in THL, with the exception of VIM-style keybindings for navigating around and triaging tasks (there are equivalent keystrokes in Things 3 but I don’t find them as easy or fluid yet). My only gripe right now (and much of this is muscle memory) is that all of the 1-letter keyboard shortcuts are now off limits because that is used to search for projects. I find myself typing ‘M’ to move a selected task to a project, as I did often in THL to move things out of the inbox, but in Things 3 this triggers a search for projects that start with “M…”. Yes, I can adjust to using ⌘M to move, but I think that moving tasks to other projects is probably more important/frequent than search. My suggestion would be to map search to a ⌘F and then you have the entire keyboard for 1-key shortcuts that could make this app even better. All that said it is a minor gripe and I’m super happy with Things 3.

No Need To Be Picky: This App IS Perfect

By perfect, it may not be your expectation. But I’ve spent hundreds of dollars and several hours looking, testing, and using apps to organize my hectic thoughts and unrealistic ambitions. I have full faith that Things will make these ambitions possible. All I can say is thank you to Cultured Code. I hope whomever reads this will use such a powerful utility to change the world for the better.

I am thrilled with Things 3.

It looks so beautiful and is so easy to use. Has many ingenious features, such as calendar integration, checklists, headings, and so on. It is a joy to use.

It's really overall amazing ... but

I just want to say I really enjoy using this app. I've been working on upping my time management game for a while now and this seemed to be the perfect thing for it. Before this, I had been relying on the built-in Apple Reminders, which were mostly good enough, but I ran into issues with longer term projects as it's hard to truly visualize tasks lists with that method. Switching over to Things allowed me to start making lists, longer term projects -> even to make templates to copy from when there are similar task lists. My main complaint about this app is that instead of paying once for the macOS and iOS apps you do have to pay separately, and different amounts, for the macOS, iPhone, iPad, and Watch apps. Now granted, I don't have all these devices but if I were to start buying more devices I would basically need to buy a new app each time. The other, albeit more minor, complaint, is that you do have to dig a little to give an item a notification time. This was something I noticed a lot since I was transitioning from using Apple Reminders, which is pretty much exclusively "notify me at this time" based.

Be careful when exporting from Things 2

After moving to Things 3, I remembered a random task or two that should have appeared in Today and hadn’t. Searching showed that it simply had moved from Things 2 to Things 3. That prompted me to search through every single task on Things 2 to confirm that everything moved. I’ve found many more tasks—and even entire projects—that didn’t move and some tasks that were duplicated in Things 3. The moral of this story is hang on to your copy of Thngs 2, where you might find that elusive task.

Save your $50

This is ridiculous and NOT worth $50. There is no way to return the app or get a refund, so keep your dollars and spend them elsewhere. This is just a slightly nicer version of Things 2.

Horrible

Just updating, the ipad version is reasonable, it’s actually better than the mac version. You can easily tag multiple tasks with the keyboard there, here we can’t!!! You need to hack creating a shortcut for each tag!! Also, you can’t save searches!!!! This ridiculous! Everything requires point and click, you can’t batch edit, batch copy and paste tasks and so on. Very slow, horrible interface.

Missing features

I keep expecting Things to support what I would think is basic Mac behaviour such as option dragging to duplicate a reminder, or being able to right clicking a date to make a reminder. These expectations are so ingrained that I find their absence frustrating. I guess this is iOS like ☹️

Excellent software!

I’ve been using Things 3 on my iPhone and Mac for several months now, and I’m very happy with the software. This is the first To-Do app that I’ve found really integrates well with my day-to-day workflow. I’m at the point now where if it’s not in Things, it probably won’t get done! Favorite features: 1. Ability to see calendar events within Things. Really useful feature! 2. Things Cloud. Love that everything is synced across my devices! 3. The ability to set up recurring To-Dos, and set reminders. This has had a tremendously positive impact on my ability to stay on top of things (no pun intended). Wishlist: 1. It would be cool if there was a way to automatically mark a task as complete when the last open sub-task (Checklist item) is marked complete.

I want to love it, but just can't

It does many things very well, and it is certainly the prettiest of all the to-do apps that I’ve seen. I wanted very much to love it and stick with it. But a few things got in my way - despite the many things that it does terrifically well. I hate that I can’t get a simple list of all the things I need to do in a single context. There are two impediments - first, there is no simple way to go to a context. You have to search and, when you do, you get a list that has the project or area names inserted in between teh tasks. You can’t just get a list and then sort it in various ways (by date, but priority, by name), and it’s a little hard to filter out the things that are not yet due/possible. That alone makes it very unfriendly to me. There are workaround for most of it (you can “hide later tasks”, but then it’s hidden no matter what view you are in, so you have to remember to do that BEFORE you search . . . ). Also, no sequential projects. Also, only one level of “nesting”. Basically, if you use it really as a task manager, I think it woudl work well. If you use it to store a lot of tasks and projects with various conditionalities, and you want to be able to filter to bring things down to a useful view, it isn’t as strong. And - a warning - there is no export function, so make sure you want to stay before you input a lot of things into it. Now that I’ve decided to leave, I’m regretting seriously all the time I spent putting things in, because it is so hard to get them out. (Oh, and the snarky response from the support team when I pointed out one thing I wished the app could do did not enhance my positive feelings. Perhaps you do think the suggestion is stupid, but it is customary not to suggest that in your response.)

It’s the best. Period!

Things 3 has features that other Task/Project Management software don’t offer: 1) The ability to add headings in projects to indicate milestones, phases, or categories 2) Support for today and tonight dates to differentiate tasks (business vs personal ones that are done after work) 3) A clean, non-cluttered interface 4) (and this is HUGE!) support for start dates and deadline dates. Most apps like Todoist for example, support a due date, but many people working on projects need to show task start dates as well. For the price, Things 3 can’t be beat! Such a great app!!!!

I’ve tried them all

I’ve tried about every task manager on the market. Things 3 is by far the best! Great interface, usability, and the sync is flawless across devices. Very clean and simple design. The last thing I want is a task manager that requires me to make a task to set aside time to learn how to use it. This is by far the best one on the market.

Quality, Userfriendly, Intuitive

I’ve tried them all and this one is the best. Wunderlist has not been updated in the past two years, and unfortunately for me, neither did my process. Yesterday, I took the plunge to switch, and I bought all three apps (ipad, iphone, and Mac). Glad I did. I like the objects feature and how I can craft it to suit my needs. Very well thought out to do app.

Simple Features Missing

I just shelled out $80 to ditch Apple’s Reminders to switch to Things. Its difficult to leave the Apple ecosystem and their core iCloud apps with all their integrations. So an app like this needs to be worth it, besides the cost. I will upgrade my stars and become an advocate if I can. Here is my list: • I can’t sort lists? Either alphabetically, or by importance? I am using the areas feature, but even within those I will have long lists that I need to quickly be able to find tasks. • Saving projects when done for next year when they have to be completed again. If I just log them, they go in the basket and I risk loosing them, and having to recreate a lot of tasks. Features I like: • Apple Watch integration is great and more functional than Reminders. I like the status feature as a complication on my watch face. Not clear if the app benefits from the LTE availability yet. Hope so. Just started using it yesterday, so I will update my review as I use it.

IT JUST WORKS

After using the iOS application for a few months, I decided to take the plunge and spend the 50 dollars on the Mac App. What a great decision that was! This app does what its supposed to do (no pun intended), and does it extremely well while looking fantastic. I would absolutely recommend this app over any other task app out there. While the price is expensive upfront, theres no subscription fees which actually makes this app WAY cheaper in the long run. The ONLY drawback is the inability to have shared tasks with another Things user. I’m hoping they add that functionality in the near future, but it’s not a deal breaker for me. Would definitely recommend!

Beautiful design, easy to use

Like any to-do management system, Things works best if you give yourself over to its system. You’ll get out of it what you put into it. Its ability to act like a “clean piece of paper” makes it very versatile yet simple. Great for organizing tasks but also keeping on top of projects and breaking down goals into practical steps. The only thing I’d ask for is a web-based platform so that I could access my to-do lists while at work (using the e-mail to Things function is great, but accessing my list on my phone when I’m using my PC at work seems limiting). But overall, amazing product.

Tames my Things

I love this app so much. I should say I love THESE apps so much because I bought for my iPhone and iPad also! I’m hooked. It’s clean, easy-to-use, and very intuitive. I’ve tried so many applications. Haven’t we all! (I removed the names of the other apps, so as not to throw anyone under the bus; you know them.) I even tried Things2, but it was disappointing. This elegant program does it all and syncs to all devices, so you can add and make changes on the go. I use my laptop a lot, so a program with a laptop application was key for me. I needed something easy to use, and this really is. It became essential almost immediately. I love that Things gets out of the way, but stays up to date and keeps me on track. What I love, love, love is that when you check that a task is done, it disappears! Seems like an easy thing, but most other programs require YOU to move the deleted items or they don’t move them at all. The undone tasks stay in your view but not in a bothersome way. You can also establish projects, create checklists, set deadlines and add tags. This is a wonderful application, and I’m thrilled that Cultured Code kept at it until they got it right. I feel so much more aware of what I need to do and can easily add tasks to get them on an electronic list and out of my head. Good job Cultured Code!!

Changed my life, but asks a high price for it

Things has changed my life, it is absolutely wonderful. It is excellent design at its best, not just visual design but a UI that has limits and flexibility in all the best ways to improve life. The iOS versions, separate apps for iPhone and iPad, cost a lot and hurt a little, but were SO worth it. The Mac version, though is just too expensive. It hurt ALOT to pay such a high price. I begrudgingly admit that it is probably worth it, but my usage of things is now tinged with anger and guilt.

Just the Best

The two killer features that caused me to stop using things years ago 1. Not allowing me to order the tasks in the Today view independent of the Project order 2. Project Templates, using Project duplicate They are in Things 3 now, this is awesome! I love this app! Ok just one complaint, I hate the all white, I prefer the old things PC with 3d gray bars I loved that look, this look I do not like, too bright and hard on my eyes. But that is just aesthetic, everything else is very clean and awesome and uncluttered. Brilliant!

The BEST to-do list app!

Thank you so much for creating Things 3! Keep up the great work. This is the best to-do app that I have ever used. It keeps me organized, focused and most importantly less distracted. I love, love the simple clean UI/UX design. It’s so nice to add a new to-do in the inbox throughout the day as I remember things that I need to get done but haven’t decided when I will do them. I am now less stressful and feeling very accomplished everyday!

It just gets better and better!

i have been using Things for quite a whil enow and it just gets beter and better. As a GTD person, this helps me manage and focus. If you live in an Apple world.. this is a must have application. walking i can tell Siri on my apple watch to remind me to do something and it shows up via reminders in my Inbox. I have it on ever device and my world stays connected. the app has reached a mature level of functionality that can new tackle the complexity wth simplicity.

No way to export data

This application needs to support exporting user’s data. Holding info in the app with no way to export all data to a CSV or JSON is not ok in 2018. The app supports importing from competitor’s applications, but has no options to leave Things than manually going through and copying out data.

Everything I’ve always wanted; especially tagging!

I've just downloaded the trial. I'm 15 minutes in, and I've already bought it. It's beautiful. It's clean. Custom tags give me so much power. The search across the entire set of projects is fast and easy. The built-in 'Today' view is perfect. Cultured Code really nailed it.

Best to-do app I’ve ever used… and I’ve tried a lot

I’ve tried everything under the sun… Wunderlist, Microsoft to-do, Google Keep, Asana, Todoist, TickTick, Dynalist, Workflowy, Omnifocus (and probably a dozen more), and also tried switching back to paper planner like the 90s, LOL…. nothing matches the sheer speed and user-oriented design of Things. Can you believe it’s so good that it necessitated me switching from Android to iPhone for mobile access. Serious hats off to Cultured Code. The user research they did when making every little design decision must have been comprehensive and amazing.

An Organized Designer, Thanks To Things

Is it true that designers are unorganized? Maybe, but I wouldn’t know- I depend on Things to keep me straight, organized, and productive. And Things helps me get a really good handle on what needs to be done by project so I can prioritize. I’ve tried them ALL, over the years; I’ve paid $$ hundreds, I have used the free ones, and I wrote for my own use a Filemaker Pro solution. And I won’t lie: there are some darn good competitors to Things, apps written by thoughtful people. But: the guys at Things just ‘get it’. And if you’re reading this review, thinking about purchase, I have there words for you: Just. Do. It.

used it two minutes ...

Tried to make an item subordinate to another. Can’t. How about select the item and hit tab? Couldn’t read the text, which is too small for my taste. Hit command plus to magnify it. Nothing. These are trivial observations based on 5 minutes of use. For $50, I’m beginning to think some reviews are a bit skewed. Reminiscent of bate and switch.
