Here’s how to buy Things for each of your devices.
Things is sold separately as a one-time purchase for Mac, iPad, and iPhone. The Watch app is included when you purchase the iPhone app.
Here’s how to buy the app for each device:
You can buy Things for your Mac in the Mac App Store. It’s a one-time purchase, not a subscription.
You can buy Things for your iPad in the App Store. It’s a one-time purchase, not a subscription.
You can buy Things for your iPhone in the App Store. It’s a one-time purchase, not a subscription.
When you buy Things for iPhone in the App Store, Things for Apple Watch is included for free.
You can install Things on your Apple Watch via the Watch app on your iPhone.
If I want to buy all the apps, can I bundle them?
Due to the way the App Store works, there’s no way to bundle Mac & iOS apps together into a single purchase. See Apple’s explanation here. Furthermore, we don’t have a universal iOS app because we want to keep the iPhone price as low as possible for people who don’t own an iPad.
Why is the iPad app more expensive than the iPhone app?
The development cost for our iOS version is split between our iPhone and iPad apps. A majority of the code is shared between the apps, but the iPad requires extra work and has more features than the iPhone app. Further to that, fewer people buy the iPad app, so the price is higher to subsidize the costs of development.
I bought Things 2. Is there a discount for Things 3?
Due to the way the App Store works, there’s no way to offer discounted pricing for only some people – it only allows us to lower the price for everyone. So when we released Things 3 on 18 May 2017, we discounted the apps by 20% for everyone for two weeks. During that time, we attempted to help our existing customers migrate by reaching out to as many people as we could via Twitter, Facebook, in-app notices, our blog, and our newsletter. The launch discount is now over, and we don’t have any other way to offer a discount. However, if you bought Things 2 on or after 1 March 2017, please contact us (with your proof of purchase) for a free upgrade.
Education or Business discounts
Because we are selling Things through Apple’s App Store, we cannot offer individual discounts (Apple doesn’t offer this option to us). But if you need to buy multiple copies of Things for a group, you can use Apple’s Volume Purchase Program for business or for education.
Things Cloud is free
Things Cloud is a free service we provide for all of our customers. It keeps your to-dos synced across all of your devices running Things.
Can I access my to-dos on another platform?
Things is available for Mac, iPad, iPhone, and Apple Watch. We don’t make Things for Android, Windows, the web, or any other platforms.
