    Has anyone bought Things for Apple Watch? Currently using wunderlist. Thinking what could a 12$ to do app could do more..?

    Things isn't about doing more (although it does do a lot).

    Things is about doing things with low friction and high design/style.

    Watch Videos of it and you'll know if it's for you.

    Things is okay, but it is annoying to use. It's a pain to set up recurring tasks and in the today screen, you have to tap a task twice to actually do it. I find it annoying to use.

    I agree. Lovely app to look at. Irritating to an extreme to actually use, day in and day out. Too dang tap-happy.

    I love things on the mac and am absolutely confident they'll improve the watch app with time!

    I installed it but the glance was just full of something about a road trip. Sounds good to me, but I didt put it in there. The app itself worked fine.

    I got the app back when it was free as an editors choice. I really love it. I don't think that it is difficult to use. It is the right balance for me between easy to use and customizability.

    I really like it. Very straight-forward, I can add a new item / unmark an existing item with a single tap from its home screen.

    I had the same thing about the road trip. I emailed them and apparently it's a known bug which they are working to resolve.

    I already owned Things. In fact the only apps, besides the "stock" apps, I have are the ones I had previously.
    Anyway, Things works fine on the Apple Watch.
    What really works great is adding "events" by voice command. This makes it easy to add things on the go. The only negative, I think, is that Things doesn't sync with Apple's Calendar or Reminders. That's why I, also, use Clear.

    I got Things to use it on my watch like I was already using Reminders on my phone. I really wish Apple would put Reminders on the watch.

    Yes, Apple definitely needs to add Reminders to the Watch. Hopefully this is coming in a future update sooner than later! I used Things most of the time, but our Grocery List is on Reminders...

    I've been using Things for ages. It's sometimes a bit over complex for simple stuff but otherwise great.

    Things has a really specific workflow, its focus isn't so much on recurring tasks its about delegating your todos with the get things done structure. You have to stick it's routine of collecting tasks and then marking the ones which you want to get done today at breakfast.

    I just got a spare charger for it. Now waiting for my SS one coming in June so that I can get rid of my sport. Then, I will be starting to buy more bands (Milanese and Link, plus white and black sport band) :) Apple needs to send me the SS ASAP so that I can start my shopping trip to Portland OR :)

    ownder it

    I owned it before, but having used it now I wouldn't buy it for the watch..

    lists on the iphone show up on the watch, but items created on the watch DONT' seem to show up on the watch. or at least I can't seem to get them to show up even after making them.

    rolling the crown doesn't show anything, holding, pressing, swiping, can't seem to get back to anything

    Do the new items not go to your inbox? And the only list you can see on the watch is today

    This, exactly.
    I said in here a couple of weeks ago about being a things user but I've finally given up on it completely for Apple Watch, it's too restrictive.
    I get where they are coming from, keeping it simple for the watch but there's simple and then there's just bloody annoying. I'm using a different app now for a lot of my list making and I much prefer how it works with the watch.
