As I’ve mentioned in the past, I love Remember the Milk for a lot of my to do list requirements, but I still have my complaints — one is that it doesn’t work with Siri; another is that it doesn’t let you do nested to-do lists (so you can break a project into pieces). A friend was just singing the praises of the iOS app Things, and when she mentioned that it addresses both of my main complaints I thought I’d buy it for myself to check it out. Verdict: it’s a very, very, very smart to do app. You can create nested to-do lists and differentiate projects, but if there are items due today they all show up on one list. You can tag items (I tend to tag things by “low energy,” as in “I can do this while watching tv”; other good tags might be “phone calls” so you can bang out many in one sitting, or, say, area of town, so the next time you’re near the train station you can remember what you need.) It’s a very Apple-friendly app — it’s even dockable on your Apple Watch. You can even share your entire to do list in one fell swoop. My one complaint about the app is that there’s no way to check it on your PC (or in the cloud), but I haven’t played with their brand new URL/handoff features at all. (The Siri functionality is also a bit clunky, but I suspect that if I spent a bit more time playing with it it would be fine.) The app is $9.99 at the App Store. Things 3 – Cultured Code GmbH & Co.
