Things for OSX

January 17, 2008

I’ve tried several task management tools in the past (including Leopard’s new systemwide tasks system and Anxiety) but I’ve never been able to find one that really matched the way I work. Lately I’ve been using Things, and it’s come closer than anything else I’ve tried in the past. I like the way tasks are categorized by area or project, and the UI is has a very elegant, usable feel to it.

Things is currently offered as a free beta, and I’m looking forward to the 1.0 release. In my experience it’s very stable, but I still ran into a lot of minor issues I’m hoping will be ironed out by the final release.
