Things for Mac

CNET Editors' review

Things is a powerful, easy-to-use task-management app that can help you enter, organize, and act on items in your to-do list. Based on the popular Getting Things Done productivity method, Things gives you an elegant, streamlined interface--a classic, Mac-style multipane setup that doesn't require a lot of additional windows for its work flow.

Its clean interface even dispenses with columns, and you can use the app's flexible tag system for priority, task duration, or any sort of categorization that works for you. You can quickly enter new tasks from anywhere, using a system-wide shortcut, and you can include links to URLs, e-mails, folders, and files, along with due dates and other additional context. "Projects" lets you collect subtasks into a larger endeavor, "Areas" lets you group by areas of responsibility in your life (such as work or family), "People" helps keep an eye on delegated tasks, and the "Logbook" tracks completed tasks.

There are other, similar task-management apps available--including many that are much cheaper--but Things' killer interface, robust capability to scale, plug-ins with popular app launchers, support for AppleScript, and integration with a separate iPhone app combine to make this one of the very best applications of its kind. If you use Get Things Done, you need to check out Things.

    "One of the Best To-Do Apps"

    December 19, 2011  |   By straittalker77

    Version: Things 1.5.4


    Synchronizes perfectly across platforms. Very simple to use. Powerful enough to manage complex projects.


    A bit pricey but worth the money.


    Things is one of the best task-management tools out there. I have been using this app for the past few months, and have been completely satisfied with the product. The app synchronizes seamlessly over all platforms, from my iPhone to my mac. Everything is in tact. It's very easy to use, but is powerful enough to tackle large, complex steps in a project. Not only is it good for you personal use, but for business and work, as well. Has made my life that much easier.
