Things Comments

Started out good..

Negative Comment by Robertsson
about Things Jan 2016

This is a great program, but the amount of inovations/new functions after its release has been close to 0. Its not keeping up with all the other competitors.
Adding collaboration with other people would probably close up the gap to all the other GTD apps out there.

Too damn expensive

Negative Comment by OmgItsTheSmartGuy
about Things May 2012

I'll admit right now that I've never used Things before. And considering the price tag, I probably won't be using it anytime soon, either. The cost of the Mac app, iPad app, and iPhone app added together is about $77. That's about $72 more than I'm willing to pay for a todo list.

This program is good but way too expensive. If you want to use it on the desktop and on your iphone its 50$ for the desktop app and 10$ for the iphone app, I think what's to much. Its better to use SimpleTask, where the desktop app is free and the iphone app cost 2$.
