Task manager nachos

My life is quantifiably better when I’m using a task manager. Here’s a low stakes, but concrete example: I had nachos today because a reminder on my watch told me the cheese was going to expire tomorrow. Without the reminder, the cheese would have gone bad and I would have had to throw it away.

I’ve tried a bunch of task managers, but only one has held my attention: Things by Cultured Code. Anyone who is looking for a task manager is looking for a specific ratio of power and simplicity, whether they realize it or not. Things is the one that hits the sweet spot for me. It’s been a long time since Cultured Code has done a major version update to Things, but that hasn’t stopped them from adding great features to Things 2, including the best sync I’ve seen anywhere and the only Apple Watch task manager complication that makes any sense.

Things 3 is launching sometime next month. I have no idea what this update will include, but I know it’s going to bring me a lot of nachos.
