I’m not sure why I have such an obsession with this app. It is without a doubt beautiful in all its incarnations, but it’s by no means the most usable and it’s not close to being in feature parity with the likes of OmniFocus and Todoist. It is delightful to use though, even if too many taps are needed for simple tasks.

Anyway, suffice it to say I am excited by the imminent arrival of Things 3 and on my birthday no less. It was meant to be!

I truly hope that they’ve added functionality and not just updated the UI. Unfortunately the tease UI of the quick entry field does not bolster my hopes. Tags look to have been relegated to a selection item, and there is no sign of an option to attach files to a todo. There are a couple of new items, one of which looks like a flag option, the other is a mystery. Perhaps sub items on a task?

I guess I’ll find out on the 18th.
