Watch

Things for Apple Watch communicates with Things for iPhone via Bluetooth and automatically uses the Things Cloud account you’ve signed into there. Follow the instructions in the iPhone tab above to sign into your Things Cloud account.

If you’ve created any to-dos on your Mac, iPad, or iPhone before logging into your Things Cloud account, you’ll be asked which to-dos you’d like to keep. After you decide, hit Continue.

How often are my to-dos updated with Things Cloud?

After you’ve logged into Things Cloud, updates with it are triggered automatically by a variety of actions.

Can I get to my to-dos in Things Cloud with a web browser?

Not at this time. We really like native apps, so that’s where we focus our energy. We don’t want to completely rule out the possibility of a version of Things for the browser in the future, but right now, there are no plans to create one.
