We’ve known for a while now that the popular Things to-do list management app is coming to the Apple Watch, and we even posted a few screenshots of the application this morning. But now, Cultured Code, the developers behind Things, have provided an in-depth look at how their application sets itself apart from the other task management Apple Watch applications. While the Mac, iPhone, and iPad versions of Things separate tasks into Today, Next, Scheduled, and Someday tasks, the Apple Watch app focuses in on the Today View.

Like many Apple Watch apps, Things has two main components: the central app and a Glance. In the case of Things, the Glance is basically a stripped down version of the WatchKit app that allows users to check off completed tasks during the day. The main application allows users to add and manage tasks, and like the iOS and Mac apps, Project to-dos can be viewed (however new projects cannot be created). The Things WatchKit application is bundled into an existing, free Things for iPhone update. For first time users, the iPhone version is $9.99 on the App Store.
