Things is still my favourite to-do app but Wunderlist is free and it’s Android compatible. Here’s how to export your to-do items from Things to Wunderlist.

To get all your todo items from Things into Wunderlist you need to export your Things items as a text file then import that text file into Wunderlist using the Wunderlist parser tool.

  1. Select your first Area of Responsibility in Things. (e.g. ‘home’)
  2. Select the top to-do item in that area, then shift click on the bottom to-do item. Now all the to-do items will be selected. They turn blue to show they are selected.
  3. Drag all the selected to-do items to the desktop. Things will make a note on the desktop with all the items in it.
  4. Open this note, then press Apple-A to select all of the note. Press Apple-C to copy all the text.
  5. Go to http://wunderlist-parser.herokuapp.com/parser
  6. Login with your Wunderlist details. Under ‘Items’ click and then press Apple-V to paste all the to-do items items in there. Under ‘List Title’ type in the name of the area of responsibility (e.g. ‘home’)
  7. Click on ‘Create List’ at the bottom of the window and all the items will be imported into Wunderlist.

The Wunderlist parser tool imports each line in a text file as a seperate to-do item.
