Things is a Mac utility for keeping track of your daily assignments and personal to-do lists. The program is nicely-designed, intuitive, and is available in multiple languages.
With its help, you can schedule to-dos, set reminders for important tasks, and organize your assignments into groups. The application also enables you to import data from other third-party task managers, Apple's Reminders tool or from a plaintext file.

Furthermore, Things comes with an integrated search utility that helps you find to-dos with ease. It also enables you to add tags to your assignments which makes finding the task you're looking for a lot easier and quicker.

Sadly, the program comes with many flaws. For starters, it doesn't provide you with an option to export your to-do lists. You can only print them from the app's interface. Another aspect that bothered me was that the app occasionally crashed, especially when switching between screens.

Also, you can find cheaper solutions for keeping track of your daily tasks. There are plenty of other third-party tools that provide you with more features, are cheaper, and work OK.

Hence, I don't think it's worth buying this app for your Mac.
