Where did you see that 2Do would have a web version? I know that the developer is working on a new form of sync, but hadn’t heard anything about a web version…

In my opinion the best web-based task manager with native apps is Todoist. But because Todoist doesn’t have separate “start” and “due” dates I don’t use it anymore. I have too many deadlines to use any task manager that doesn’t have this feature…

I wrote to 2Do about a month ago and asked. I was told that a Web version should be introduced this year, and inferred that it wasn’t imminent.

Yo Luhmann,

Having had a little play - and been really rather impressed - I can confirm that Things 3 does indeed support images and any other file you like. You simply drag and drop files into notes (in todos), or you send files to Things using its extension. You can also automatically copy and paste stuff into new todos using the Ctrl+space shortcut, which is a very neat feature (you have to check the relevant box in “Preferences” first, otherwise the shortcut simply creates a new todo, rather than a new todo based on selected app/text).

The UI is brilliant; they’ve really had a good look at how people “do” task management and thought about it very carefully. The way you can create tabbed sections in projects using tags is inspired!

I’ve made a couple of suggestions to developers, two to do with folding (i.e. making Things more like an outliner). It would be great if you could fold headings within projects (i.e. toggle todos in each project), and fold areas in the navigation bar (e.g. headings under which projects appear). Finally, I suggested they make it possible to quick-tag all todos under a certain heading within a project.

The only other thing that’s missing is collaboration, but if they’ve any sense, they’re already working on it! Otherwise, it’s probably the most elegant task management app I’ve seen to date.

Sorry, no, I’m wrong; Things only supports links to files, not the files themselves. Shame, but at least useful.

Nice review here, incidentally: http://www.macstories.net/reviews/things-3-beauty-and-delight-in-a-task-manager/
