Editors' Review


Things for Mac is a convenient program for organizing the important things in your life, whether work-related or personal in nature. You can add tags to each task to make it easier to find them later on, and you can find a list of archived tasks in your Logbook.


Great interface: This app features a smooth and streamlined interface that makes adding and managing your tasks as straightforward as possible. There is a Quick-Add button on every screen, so you don't have to stop what you're doing to jot down another note. And you can archive completed tasks, so they're not cluttering up your workspace but are accessible if you need to refer back to them.

Task groupings: When you create a task in this app, you can enter exactly the amount of information you want. Based on your entries in terms of the task's start and end dates, the app will automatically sort them into categories like Next, Today, Scheduled, or Someday. You can also add tags to your project to make them easier to find later on.


No priority ordering: While all of the tasks due on the current day will show up under Today, there is no way to list them by priority. The best you can do is to add a tag to the most urgent items, so that when you search for that tag, you get a list of the tasks that need to be completed first. But an option to reorder your tasks or a quick option to mark them as a priority would be nice as well.

Bottom Line

Things for Mac is a great program for organizing all of the important tasks you have to accomplish. It's free to try, but if you want to keep using it for the long term, you'll have to purchase a license for $49.95.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Things for Mac 2.2.6.
