It's not feature complete yet but it has already replaced iGTD and OmniFocus for me as the GTD app to beat. There's definitely some quirks to fix and iCal integration needs to happen before the final hits but the workflow is excellent and it's a please to use.

Hopefully their XML data schema will mean they or another enterprising group can make a web-version of Things a possibility for those times you are out of the office and need to make changes on the go. I know thing in on the drawing board for iGTD Pro so I hope it is in the mix for Things too.

@hiram : I've had the exact same experience. I too have used OmniFocus for a while, and I too found it somewhat cumbersome and often disappointing. Then, last week, I was sent the invitation for Things and was absolutely enchanted! What an application! So sleek, so Mac-like, so well-thought, I hadn't seen such a beautiful piece of software in years!

I know it lacks a lot of the features that OmniFocus already has, but a) it's still in Alpha b) it made me twice as productive anyway. I've been so happy to throw OmniFocus out of my dock and login items, and I'll certainly never use it again! I suggest everyone tries out the app for themselves, as the screencast doesn't fully explain how wonderful an application this is. A must-have for any GTD fanboy such as myself.

I've been using Things.app now for two or three weeks, and have removed OmniFocus from my Login Items, and even from the Dock. Why? It's hard to say why, actually. OmniFocus has many more features than Things in its present state, and some of those features I thought were quite important, but Things is so much more pleasant to use, because of the way it looks (the OmniGroup may want to work on a new, updated UI style, for all their apps), but also because of its sheer simplicity. It's more sophisticated than some apps (like the new, free, Anxiety.app), but it lacks OmniFocus's overabundance of features.

I do hope some features will be added to Things, without the app becoming unwieldy like OmniFocus (sorry, OmniPeople!). Particularly, I'd like to see dependency between tasks (a task or tasks becoming available only when a certain other task, that may or may not be part of the same project, is completed) and repeating tasks.

I don't know, I watched the screencast and it looks to me like the concept behind it is not the pure GTD system that I'm used to. On the other hand, I've been using OmniFocus for the last two months and I'm not too enthusiastic about it. As hiram said, I'd really like to try Things out before OmniFocus' price is nearly doubled.

OmniFocus clunky. Actiontastic in hibernation. iGTD... yuck. This is very early, but the concepts and implementations are the best I've seen. Crashy, et al, but it's still in Alpha. Rock on, devs!

Things makes OmniFocus (and its rigid Contexts) seem downright clunky. This app is a revelation!

Things is an excellent GTD application. It's easy to use and the power of the Meta Data enables you to get a lot more done than with any of the better known applications that require a lot of learning to function. Just my humble opinion ...
