Reinstalling Things 2

Last Updated: Oct 10, 2018 10:49AM CEST

We no longer sell or support Things 2 since the release of Things 3 in May 2017, but you can still install the older version of the app.

If you would like to keep using Things 2, here’s how you can reinstall the app.

Mac

The last Things 2 version we released is 2.8.14 and the last macOS version we fully support is 10.13.

Install Things 2 from the Mac App Store

If you purchased Things 2 originally from the Mac App Store, here’s how to download it again:

  1. On your Mac, open the Mac App Store to the Purchases tab.
  2. Click INSTALL to the right of Things 2 in your list of purchases.

Install the licensed version of Things 2

If you purchased Things 2 originally directly from our website and received a license via email, here’s how to download it again:

  1. Download the last Things 2 version here. If your macOS version isn’t supported by Things 2.8.14, find a legacy version here.
  2. Open the app.
  3. In the menu bar at the top of your screen, click Things > License to enter your license.

Your Things 2 license will not work with Things 3. They are a separate purchase.

If you have lost your license, you can write us. Please include all possible email addresses you might have used to register your license and your full name.

Things doesn’t show in Purchases

If you don’t see Things in Purchases in the App Store, try these steps:

  1. Check the Apple ID you are signed it with. You must use the same Apple ID you used to purchase Things.
  2. Make sure you didn’t hide Things from your purchases. Here’s how to check for hidden purchases on your Mac or iOS devices.
  3. If you still don’t see Things, contact Apple Support. Apple handles all purchases from the App Store. They are the only ones who can check your purchase history.
