Things is a beautifully focused and amazingly intuitive task manager. Other todo applications either oversimplify or are too difficult to use. Things instead offers the perfect balance between ease of use and powerful features.
Effortlessly manage to-dos, notes, due dates, and projects. A smart today list and the scheduling feature allow you to work as effectively as possible - every day.
You can even sync wirelessly with the desktop version of Things (sold separately) using Wi-Fi.

Things for iPad
Intro: The Mac version of Things, a task-management program, was released in 2009, and it didn’t take long for it to garner rave reviews and a legion of dedicated fans. Devotees of the Getting Things Done organizational philosophy generally found that Things accommodated the method well...
Final words: The $20 price of Things for iPad can’t be ignored, considering that there are 40 or more to-do apps already available for the iPad, all of them costing considerably less than Things. Although there is no trial version of this, or any other app, for the iPad, there is a full-featured trial version of Things for the Mac, which can give you a pretty good idea of what the iPad version is like before you plunk down $20. Cultured Code also provides a short video highlighting the “look and feel” of Things for iPad.

Review of Things for iPad
Intro: Things from Cultured Code is one of the first programs that I install on all my Macs. This task management software helps organize my busy and somewhat hectic life. If you keep a “To Do” list on you all the time then Things is a program worth owning, especially used in conjunction with an iPhone/iPod Touch or now the iPad. For more information about Things for Mac please check out my review from last year...
Final words: If you plan to carry your iPad around all the time and need to keep track of your projects and To Dos, then Things for iPad is an essential app to own. Feature wise is it almost identical to the Mac version and syncing data with the desktop version is easily accomplished without much user intervention. There are really no complaints about Things for iPad other than the price. It is one of the more expensive apps in iTunes and the iPad version does not work with the iPhone/iPod Touch. Cultured Code should either lower Things for iPad’s price or make this a “universal app” to gain a larger user base. Not a major issue but it may be something that keeps some people from investing in the app. I know Things for the iPad will be residing on my Apple tablet for quite some time. Now please excuse me I have to check off my Things for iPad review task.
Review: Things for iPad
Intro: Are you busy? On the go? Has your iPad now become the new center of your life planning universe? If you answered yes to any of these questions, and you are looking for a gorgeous task and to-do manager, then you might want to consider Things for iPad. Offered by developer Cultured Code, maker of Things for iPhone and Mac, you can now get the popular application for your iPad. Will it help you organize you life? I’ll give you my take and then let you decide...
Final words: Things for iPad works well and is a great looking application task manager. Although there are a number of issues, it delivers a very easy and good user experience on the iPad. However, a major drawback to this program is the cost. It is hard to justify the $19.99 price tag. Given the number of other app options out there that accomplish the same thing for considerably less money, I am hard pressed to understand why one should pay this much. I know developers deserve to make money. I agree developers need to make money. However, I have used other programs costing a couple of bucks that allow me to do most of the same stuff and look remarkably good doing it to boot. So where does that leave us? In my opinion, it is just too expensive an application for what it does. Add in the fact that the iPad version doesn’t sync with the iPhone version, there is currently no PC offering, and that you pay full price across the board for all three programs from Cultured Code, and it makes it a tough app to recommend no matter how good it looks keeping track of your things.
Things for iPad Review
Intro: Known as one of the premier organizational to-do apps on Mac and iPhone, Things sits in iPad limbo. Is it a stand-alone task-management tool with features that fully match the strong Things for Mac? No. Is it just an extension of Things for Mac, designed to mostly sync data for mobile use? Not really. Things for iPad gives lip service to both audiences without fully serving either...
Final words: Things skips too many features and costs too much to be recommended as a stand-alone tool. It's not nimble enough to just be a Things for Mac extension either. Yet even in this in-between state, its main to-do tools can help organize your life. Several views and organizational areas help sort your tasks. Dated to-dos can appear only at a certain time. Projects group multiple items within a single, main objective. Syncs data with Things for Mac (sold separately). No non-Project lists. No search option, just tag organization. Recurring items and folder-like areas of responsibility can't be created on the iPad and can only be synced over. No iCal support. Way overpriced for its feature set.
Things for iPad Review
Intro: With modern day life as hectic as it is, I find myself looking for ways to keep myself better organized, less forgetful, and more productive. When I was younger and life was simpler, I was able to mentally keep track of all the things/stuff I needed to get accomplished. But with more responsibility and old age (aka less braincells), that To-Do list is constantly well beyond my capability to keep my head above water without some organizational assistance...
Final words: Cost aside, Things for the iPad is a great app for those with hectic lives needing assistance keeping focused/organized. I use Things many times per day and my addiction continues to grow. When my trial version of Things for Mac runs out I will seriously consider splurging and purchasing that as well, making my holistic Things experience even better. Things for iPad is definitely one of my top five apps on my iPad.
Things for iPad: Beauty might not be enough
Intro: Things needs no introduction. It had been in the forefront of Mac productivity since the day the world saw it. The team at Cultured Code has carefully executed one of the most beautiful and powerful GTD app systems on the Apple platform. They started with the Mac, in late 2007. They then combined it with an iPhone version of Things. Cultured Code again brought forth something amazing for mobile device, preserving the look and feel of the Mac version yet fitting right into the iPhone form factor. To say they’ve greatly improved the iPhone version would be an understatement. When it shipped, it didn’t even sync with the desktop; now it boasts a feature set that makes it almost as powerful as the desktop...
Final words: I’m sure there are people who have been making it work, and if you think you can, the app really is quite good. And it’s only going to get better, now that Cultured Code has an actual device to test it on. Moreover, they are working on OTA sync, so someday in the future you’re probably gonna get your money’s worth (no word on how much OTA sync is gonna cost). Just that as of right now, I’m not an active Things user.
Things for iPad, Reviewed.
Intro: I got started to the GTD method years ago with Things from Cultured Code. It was a simple, good looking application that didn’t aim at empowering me to do tons of, ehm, things with my tasks, but it focused on simplicity and ease to use instead. Back then, it was the only app I needed to stay productive and keep up with my todo list...
Final words: In spite of all the problems I’ve mentioned above, I can’t help but like Things for iPad: it’s a beautiful app, with almost the same features you can have in the Mac version which make adding tasks a real pleasure. The workflow is exceptional (adding tasks is easy, popovers are very intuitive), the app is stable and responsive and I haven’t experienced a single problem with sync so far. If you’re already a Things user, you don’t even have to ask if this might be the app for you. If you’re a Things user, you should think about what you need and don’t, and maybe Things might work for you as well. Me, I’m going to keep this on my home screen and see how it compares to Taska in the long run. Perhaps the iPad will turn out to be a magical device once again, and make me switch to Things for the third time. I hope so.
Things iPad App Review
Intro: Things for iPad is an elegantly designed to-do list application that aims to keep your life organized by helping you track all of your various projects and tasks...
Final words: At $19.99, Things for iPad isn't exactly an easy sell, compared to the bargain basement prices for most apps in the Apple App Store. Then again, it's a beautifully-designed app with an engaged user community, and very active support forums on the developer's web site. It is also most likely a must-have if you already use the Things desktop application for the Mac. The choice is more difficult for Windows users. The more I use Things, the more I like the elegant interface, though I am frustrated by some of the shortcomings of the app, such as not being able to create a top-level Waiting For list, or email a comprehensive list of tasks to myself for use during the day, since there is no desktop application available for Windows PC users. I am hopeful that future versions of the app will correct some of those shortcomings. According to the development roadmap on the Cultured Code web site, Areas and search capabilities will be included in the next release, though no date has yet been announced for the update.
