Update for our Watch app:
- We’ve entirely rebuilt its foundation to allow it to sync and operate without your phone being nearby. We’ve also taken this opportunity to add some often-requested features to the app. For more information about this release, please visit our blog: thingsapp.com

There are no huge changes in this release for Mac, but there’s one great new feature you should know about:

Things 3.11
Quick find – new lists:
- If you’ve been using Things for awhile, you’re probably quite adept at zipping around the app with Quick Find. For today’s release, we’ve added some handy new lists to navigate to

To access these new lists, simply type their name into Quick Find:
- “Deadlines” – all your upcoming (or passed!) deadlines, neatly sorted
- “Repeating” – all your repeating to-dos in one, convenient place
- “Tomorrow” – a nice focused list to plan tomorrow, today
- “All Projects” – an overview of all your big goals
- “Logged Projects” – an overview of your past achievements
- While not technically a list, note that you can also type “Settings” (or “Preferences”) to quickly get there. No more digging for that Settings button!

Quick find – recents:
- We’ve also made switching between lists even quicker: invoke Quick Find and you’ll now see all the lists you’ve recently viewed
- And on iPhone or iPad you no longer need to scroll to the top of a long list to access Quick Find: just tap the list’s title for instant search

Quick find – headings:
- Quick Find now supports searching for projects’ headings and quickly navigating to them

More improvements:
- See the exact date and time when a to-do or project was created or completed. On iOS, tap ••• > Share > Get Info. On Mac, go to Items > Get Info
- When typing a date on systems set to a 12-hour clock, the parser now chooses AM/PM more intelligently (and offers both options in some cases)
- The following prefixes are now recognized as bullets and stripped out when pasting text into to-do lists or checklists: •, *, - [ ]
- Increased the sidebar width on larger iPad Pros to accommodate those longer project titles
- Added support for Cmd+click on links to open them in background. (Mac only)
- Inside Areas, new projects can now be inserted with a New Project button in the toolbar and TouchBar. (Mac only)

Other changes and fixes:
- Several bug fixes relating to drag and drop
- Improved handling of changes to lists
- Improvements for background execution
- Other small bug fixes and improvements

Things 3.10
- Over the past few months we’ve been working away on our Fall updates.

- We’ve also built a new “Reminders Import” feature for users who want to migrate their entire Reminders database over to Things. You’ll find this feature in File > Import
- Things already had a Dark Mode that was tied to the system-wide setting on macOS, but the system can now switch the mode automatically on a daily schedule, meaning Things will switch on schedule too (unless you set Things’ mode manually, which is still possible)
