  • Ready to advance from Evernote, looking at Obsidian
    Currently, I use Things ( for tasks and Evernote for notes, and experimented with Freeform (I love the visual aspect and simplicity). At work, I've used Notion, Mural, Miro, LucidChart, Quip, and many other collaboration-based knowledge systems. I never researched the best of personal knowledge systems until now.

  • Best Planner Apps: Top 11 Daily Planning Tools in 2023
    Things is a planner app built for Apple devices and designed to help wrangle growing task lists with smooth automations and easy-to-use controls. You can use it on your Mac, iPhone, Apple Watch, or iPad. The app is ideal for employee work planning, or as a personal task manager, but not really suited for managers who plan for an entire team. - Source: / 12 months ago

    Things 3 - Price: $49.99 (one-time purchase) To-do list for MacOS. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Looking for Todoist alternatives
    I have used Things and have found it great for task/project/homework tracking. I believe it satisfies a number of the constraints you listed. No Windows app though. Source: about 1 year ago

  • Ask HN: What productivity tools do you use?
    As context: I live with a partner and run a SaaS with a handful of contractors. I think this is important context, because most productivity tools and systems fall down when you have to introduce state outside of your control, and half your time is spent syncing your to-do list with your company's JIRA board or whatever. I run my life pretty much entirely inside of Things ( It has... - Source: Hacker News / about 1 year ago
  • How to use TODO app together with Obsidian?
    You can copy an Obisidian-URL for a specific note and paste it as a resource in your todoapp, in my case, Things, on Mac and iOS, which both open the Obisidan App to the specified note. Source: about 1 year ago
  • What are your favourite apps?
    Things 3 - to do list manager, pure gold. Nothings comes close to this on any platform. Things is not only splendid but it is only available on apple devices! A Magnificent app and the only one on my Mac that makes it worth it's investiture. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Entrepreneurial productivity: my list work principles & tools I used to build my 7 figure ecom business
    The app I use for my simplified GTD method. The main reason I like it is because it does a great job with the small set of features you really need, is highly intuitive & not bloated with shit I don’t care about. Source: over 1 year ago
  • List and planner obsessed ... can't find a system that works!
    a digital task manager. I am partial to Things for its minimalist design but there are many great alternatives as well like Todoist, TickTick, Microsoft To Do et). Source: over 1 year ago

  • Ask HN: Programs that saved you 100 hours? (2022 edition)
    Things - its a light weight todo app with just enough features to make it useful. I tend to use it for a dev log to keep track of what I'm working on, keep notes, and finally mark something as complete - Source: Hacker News / over 1 year ago
  • A Lot of a Lot
    I have started into using as my notes system, and Things 3 for my tasks. Articles I want to save and annotate go into DevonThink. I have been slowly building up my information system and keep the software tools open while I work. I collect the ideas, use a daily note as my digital bullet journal, and have weekly, monthly, and yearly check-ins with myself. I've also applied myself to learning all I can... - Source: / over 1 year ago
  • need a to-do list app that combines iphone & apple watch & does these things
    My recommendation is Reminders if you want a free app or Things if you are OK with a paid one. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Multi-platform to-do list / task manager app that can sync to a self-hosted service
    Hello! I’m currently a Things 3 user for iOS/macOS. It does to-do management and some light project management. I love it, but I don’t like that I don’t have control of the sync service that the app uses. I’d like to find an app(s) that have iOS and desktop (or web) clients that can sync with a self-hosted service like Nextcloud/WebDAV/CalDAV/some other self hosted service. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Using the calendar app on your phone is a non negotiable must for everyone with ADHD!
    But in place of Reminders I use Things. It gives me the level of detail/control I want for complex tasks or big projects, but I don't have to do all that stuff if I don't want. I can just create a really basic reminder or task with ease, skipping whichever details I don't care about or don't know yet, and yet still find the entry later. Source: almost 2 years ago
  • Using the calendar app on your phone is a non negotiable must for everyone with ADHD!
    (My solution, which probably wouldn't work for you, is to put all the notes and stuff in Evernote, and put tasks into Things. I mostly follow the Getting Things Done philosophy that the only items that should be on a calendar are items that must be done at a specific time, like attending an event or appointment. If something has to be done by a specific time, i.e., has a deadline, it belongs on your to-do list,... Source: almost 2 years ago
  • Thank You, Firebug
    In the beginning we used Show Source and Console. As web pages grew in size it became difficult to navigate the source code, and you still had no direct way to view how CSS was being applied. The first web inspector that I used was Xyle Scope in 2004. It was an early tool based on Apple's new Safari engine. It was a few years before Firebug was released, and even then it took a while for Firebug to beat Xyle Scope... - Source: Hacker News / almost 2 years ago

    Things - Source: almost 2 years ago
  • ISO an app with daily tasks/habits, calendar events, and to do list items
    To me, Things is the best one I’ve tried. It is not cheap but at least is a one-time payment. Really cool and useful, in Mac, iOS, and the Apple Watch app is really cool too (and it offers complications). Source: almost 2 years ago
