It seems every time I go online, there’s a new task manager app available. Some to them look pretty good. Some, well… not so much. I’m sure there are some fantastic apps out there to help me manage my To-Dos, but I really don’t want to take the time to learn another system. Don’t get me wrong. I’ve tried lots of other task management solutions. I download the free trial, give it a shot for 30-days, then realize it’s either no better that what I was using or it’s just too complicated and I’m not getting (and may never get) the full benefit of all the product’s bells and whistles.
So what do I use? I’ve been using Things, by Cultured Code, for over 5 years (I’m now using Things 2), and I love it. It has perfect mix of simplicity and advanced features. It’s easy to learn and easy to use. It allows me to manage my projects as well as keep up with tasks assigned to various team members. One of the biggest improvements to Things has been the Things Cloud. Now all my tasks remain synced across each of my devices (MacBook Air, iPhone, and iPad). They’ve also added a Daily Review feature and integration with Apple’s Reminders app. I find both of these new features very useful.
I’m not going to write an in-depth review or an exhaustive how-to article regarding Things. I will however, strongly suggest you check out this valuable tool. You won’t be sorry. You can download a trial version of Things, and find an array of helpful tutorials, by going to Cultured Codes website. Click here to check it out.
Things 2 is available for Mac, iPhone, and iPad. Let me know what you think.
