Christmas Giveaway Day 2: Things

Welcome to Day 2! Today we have two copies of Things to give away. Far from being a straight-forward to do list manager, Things provides separation between tasks due now, scheduled for a future date, postponed indefinitely, or completed. It’s an Apple Design Award winning application, and offers a remarkably easy-to-use interface.

Read on for more information about the app, and to find out how to enter.

Winners Announced

Big congratulations to our two randomly selected winners:

Sorry to all of you who missed out. But don’t worry… Things might make a re-appearance at some point later in the giveaway!

About Things

Things is a fantastic task manager and “getting things done” application for OS X. It makes staying on top of your to-do list remarkably simple, all with an award winning interface.



Our Review of Things

If you’d like to find out more about Things, I’d strongly recommend reading our review of the application. Here’s the summary of our thoughts:

In case you haven’t figured by now, I’m quite a big fan of Things. It provides a great tool for managing your daily tasks and to dos. It’s simple to quickly put an idea or thought into the application, and the interface provides all the functionality you require without getting in the way. Rarely am I so impressed with an application that it immediately becomes such an important part of my workflow.

How to Enter

Entering is really simple. All you need to do is follow @macappstorm and @culturedcode on Twitter, then let us know your Twitter username in the comments below.

The competition closes in exactly 24 hours, and we will randomly select the winners shortly afterwards. This post will be updated with the winners information and we’ll get in touch!

A big thanks to Cultured Code, the developers of Things, for sponsoring the competition. Good luck, and be sure to follow us or subscribe so that you can find out if you’re a winner!
