  1. Today I wanted to share my Things 3 experience.
    If you have any experiences with Things 3 feel free to add them below, I'd love here!
    PS. Add me on IGTV for the Things 3 iOS review coming soon:

  2. Been using Things 3 ever since it came out, and never regretted buying it. It perfectly fits my needs, and with version 3.6 in only about half a year now, the developers are really putting some effort into handing in handy updates! Couldn't be happier with it and fully recommend everyone trying the app. There is a free trial for the Mac App, just go ahead and check out 😊

  3. This is my to-do app of choice. My only gripe with it is that it doesn’t support Dynamic Fonts. @Francesco if you’re in contact with anyone from Cultured Code please suggest it as a feature. I prefer smaller fonts but the font on the app is in your face.

  4. By far your best video ever. The content of your vid was well structured, with tons of insides, and well explain. And not just that, the production value shown on this vid is just amazing. Congrats Francesco!! Keep the good work coming!!

  5. I think you’ve missed one of the greatest features of things 3: adding things. No, not adding tasks, I really mean: adding THINGS! 😉

    In my workflow, Things 3 is the control center to Evernote, to my email, to websites I want to read later, to movies I want to watch, to files on my computer… just by hitting control+option+spacebar (you need the plugin first from the Cultered Code website).

    Wherever you are, hitting control+option+spacebar adds a task to Things 3 with a link to the stuff you’ve openend or selected. I can open an email in Apple Mail on my Mac, hit those buttons and voila, the email subject is a task in Things, and a link to that email is added as well, so later when I hit that link in Things 3 on my iPhone, that email opens on my iPhone. Same with, for example, Evernote notes (adding It on my Mac with control+option+spacebar, opening it on my iPhone). Same with any website I’m scrolling through.

    So, I see lots of complaints about Things 3 not having any file adding future, but – depending on your workflow – the way Things 3 handles this with linking, is maybe even better. For me, ‘adding things to things’ is really the killer feature!

  6. Ciao ma perché se creo un task su un giorno nel calendario di things3 non lo ritrovo poi su nessun calendario ne iOS ne Google?

  7. Beem umming and erring for so long with this because of the large up-front costs across platforms, but have finally decided to purchase it (Family sharing makes it feel more affordable) . Thanks for all the content.

  8. I just bought Things 3 across the board but ran into a major issue with an otherwise killer app. Specifically. I cannot (mark) complete a recurring task ahead of the due date when the due date is set to recur on a specific day as opposed to changing relative to the completion date. For example, I set a task (for specific day) for all my recurring bills. I normally pay my bills ahead of time. When I pay a bill ahead of time, I cannot mark the task complete. This is a significant issue for me that will likely cause me to migrate back to 2do which is comparatively cluttered.

  9. I love Things3. have been using it since Things 1 came out. Love it. I also use Todoist for work stuff. Would love a web interface for Things…

  10. I love Microsoft ToDo but it is a show stopper when you cannot email to task. Can I survive on Things 3 (Iphone X only) since I use Windows? I need to have SIRI and Email to Task

  11. It would be nice if Things 3 adopted the flexible customisability features of GeeTeeDee. Some features I'd want in Things 3:
    – Ability to hide Anytime and Someday.
    – Ability to drag the Inbox, Today, Upcoming, Anytime and Someday up or down depending on where you want it.
    – Ability to add custom sections next to the Today/Upcoming/Anytime/Someday area with custom favicons.
    For example, I want to have the section for 'Later' and 'Tomorrow'.
    – Ability to show number of tasks in Someday as well as in Projects so I know how much tasks I've got left without having to click on it.

    I do understand that Things 3 was designed with GTD in mind. But some people like me prefer to have their own workflow to suit their needs. So I find a great value in having the ability to customise.

  12. Love your videos! You convinced me to switch a few months ago to Things 3 from Wunderlist and I'm very happy with the change. Keep up the good work

  13. Strike #1: Mac and iOS only wouldn’t be a problem if they had a web interface.
    Strike #2: The iPhone and iPad versions are separate purchases? $20 for the iPad version even if I’ve already paid $10 for the iPhone version? Call the cops, because I want to report a highway robbery.
    Strike #3: No subscription model. I’m out.

  14. as i drive alot and have phone calls on the way to jobs is there an app that will allow me to verbally talk into my phone to make a list on a certain day without reminders…times…etc just a really basic to-do list

  15. Francesco, 25K views for this video about 📥THINGS. Please, give us more about 📥THINGS users. 👏 Thank You!!

  16. I have been having trouble understanding how to connect my calendar to the app. Is this possible? I have classes every day but I want to use this app to fins free time throughout the day to get random tasks done – like lunch with a friend. Is google calendar downloadable??

  17. Just in case no one's mentioned it, the screencast goes to a white screen at the 5m12s point; you can still hear you talking, but we can't see what you're doing.

  18. Thank a lot for this video! Is that true that Things 3 haven't availability for attach file or photo for tasks?

  19. Thank you — thought out explanation, what helped me a lot was seeing how you broke out the projects by your activities (eg. personal, youtube)

  20. You mentioned you didn't really like "projects" but did give much detail into why you don't like them? Can you explain why/ Doesn't it make ite asier to organize your projects?
