    Life saver and eye candy

    I generally have a personal issue with iOS apps in general other than functionality, and it’s about design. Cluttered and
    confusing apps that required a lot of presses and tweaking to do a function makes me angry, and an app that doesn’t take care of
    details also makes me more angry.

    Simply Outstanding ✅🏆

    I will echo the same sentiment from a previous reviewer (and I never write reviews either) that Things 3 is hands down the best
    todo app in recent years. Worth every penny. I have tried and deleted them all. The fact it is so simple yet it can do more
    complex Projects and what are called Areas is

    Incredible update to an already excellent app

    Things 3 is one of the best iPhone applications I’ve ever used. It effortlessly combines intuitive design with powerful
    features, that manage to do everything you need without getting in your way. I hope Cultured Code continues to develop and
    innovate this app for years to come.

    Buy it!

    I bought Things when it first came out. After the iPhone version I bought the Mac version.
    It was an excellent software in its simplicity but it was GTD oriented mostly and I do not like that methodology. Also, several
    functions were lacking. Yet, I used it for years!

    Pretty great

    Use this on phone, Mac and iPad. Would love to see location option for tasks (then location enabled reminders) and the ability to
    link tasks (like phone calls or emails or meetings) to contacts.

    Incredible Planner for Students

    i was originally skeptical on paying $7 on a todo list app, but i’ve come to realize how great of an investment this was. i’m

    Best out there but

    I love this app. It is the absolute best to-do app out there in my opinion. My opinion would be to not hesitate to buy it.
    However it still lacks the easy navigation and flow of some basic apps. First you cannot swipe from one day to the next. If I am

    Decent, but it can easily be better

    1. Keep the tags icon shown. Don't hide it when there's already tags on an item. Things changes the work flow when you go through
    many tasks. At least add the options to keep it shown in settings.

    2. Swipe right needs to have more edit features. When you're editing an individual task, there's the "

    The only negative I can come up with so far is that I believe the recipe for peanut butter cookies in the demo is missing at least
    one key ingredient - flour. Otherwise, this new version looks and performs great.

    Finally, found a killer app to organize tasks!

    Love this app and the way it's laid out. My only suggestion would be to add the ability to join with others and assign tasks to
    each other. So in a band, I could tell Joe to finish the set list by tomorrow. Or at home, Becky needs to mow the grass on
    Saturday. Not only would that be a killer ability

    Great app with low-overhead

    I appreciate the "designerly-ness" of Things. It is simple and elegant both in terms of the user interface and the workflow. It
    requires mulch less "mental overhead" than Omnifocus.

    If you get things, it's super useful to have it on all your devices... they syncing is easy and flawless.

    I've used quite a few todo/task/GTD apps over the past few years. From the very basics of Apple's Reminders, all the way to the

    I was an die hard OmniFocus user for the last few years and after what seemed like an eternity for Things 3 to be released, it was
