Things 3 is an incredible product. It's well-built, smooth, and effective (if a bit expensive).

Pros: The attention to detail that's gone into this is incredible. Everything just works. Transitions are smooth, there are affordances throughout that let you know what's happening, and there is a robust feature set including tags, due-by dates, target completion dates, groups/folders/projects, and more. Moving tasks around is a snap, and the Today view helps me stay organized at a glance.

Overall: Things has been critical in helping me get more organized.

Pros: Its simplicity and at the same time complexity. Things allows you to get wherever you want, from simple task management to a complex array of projects. I have tried tons of task management apps and this is by far my favorite. The UI is so clean an simple, I have used it for work and personal task as well as planning for vacations.

Cons: I think the prices is pretty steep, and if you are just looking for a simple task management software it may be overkill.

Overall: Being a full time employee and freelancer I need to keep track of all the THINGS that need to be done, so Things has empowered me to take everything out of my head and rely on my system to get the work done as simple as posible.

Pros: Simple. Easy. Clean. This is my favorite ToDo app in the App Store. I have used almost all the top ones, and the not so top ones. I have sign up to many other services, even some that are so complex that learning to use them is a huge task. THINGS is the one I am staying with. I use it for work and for home, to travel and for projects. The thing I like most is the UI, stays clean no matter how many tasks it has on. Beautiful to look at, for the simplicity of it. I can connect it to my Airmail app and make tasks from there with all the info. So I have this only place I can admin my time with.

Cons: The price, a bit too high for me, although it is worth it, It made the choice difficult to make at the beginning.

Overall: I get organized, I do the things a need to do, in the order I need to.

Pros: The application is a joy to use, due in large part to it's fantastic UI. Beautiful animations and smart thinking frame every action, making productivity a blissful experience.

Cons: Don't use this software if you need to have team functionality or cloud integrations with other softwares, this was designed for the solo trekker.

Overall: It's made organizing my to-dos much faster and more enjoyable.

Pros: Very powerful yet very accessible and user-friendly.
Perfect cloud service.
Pixel perfection.
Super support.
I'm using Things as my personal task manager, so I don't need sharing. Some might find that a drawback, not me.

Cons: The slow pace of development: version 3 was announced many years ago - about to be released now.
The iOS app should be universal for iPhone and iPad instead of being two separate purchases. The price is - after all - pretty steep.

Overall: Getting things done ;-)

Pros: Ease of use

Cons: It's not real intuitive and takes some time to learn if you don't have someone to show you how it works. Once you understand HOW it works, it's great. I'm just kind of slow on new software and the learning curve was steeper for me. I love it now!

Overall: I'm a ghostwriter, freelancer and consultant. My time and attention is all over the board. I started working with Mike Salomon on an attention management program he's been running for 25 years. The program is called "The Sherpa System," and it's designed NOT to manage your time, but to manage your focus, attention, and priorities. He requires his clients to download Things as a way to manage projects and to-do lists. He adapted the features of Things so they fit his system. As a result of Things, and Mike's "Sherpa System" I'm saving about 10 to 15 hours a week by having my lists, projects and dreams organized on Things. I don't know how Things is "supposed" to work, but what Mike has done with it, and the ease of use has made such a difference in my life. Easy to add, organize and use.

Recommendations to other buyers: Make sure you sync it across all your devices. I sync mine on my laptop, desktop, and iPhone.

Pros: simple categories. fast synchronizations. no subscriptions

Cons: selecting tags in iOS is a pain. not able to collaborate with others (family). Can't store attachments.

Overall: I found too many other todo apps to be overly complex or lacking the features I needed. Although Things doesn't have everything I want, it has everything I need. The main reason I keep coming back to Things is it's simple views. Keeping everything within Today, Next, Scheduled, Someday and Inbox reduces the amount I need to think. I don't want to spend too much time remember how to catalog the tasks I've just created.

My only gripe would be a lack of new features but that is why it has been able to avoid the unnecessary complexity. A few tweaks to the UX would be nice though.

Recommendations to other buyers: Please add a search box to select tags. UI is starting to show some age. A facelift might be nice.
