About One Thing

Put your most important task or goal in the menu bar. Its presence there will help remind you without being annoying.

« You can achieve almost anything if you focus on one thing at a time »

— Someone on the internet

Use the app for anything you want. Maybe you just want to put your dog's (or cat's) name in the menu bar. That's ok too.

You can use Markdown to style the text with bold, italic, and strikethrough. And you can even add links.

The app also comes with support for Shortcuts, share extension, system service, and scripting.

Tip: You can drag & drop text directly onto the menu bar item. For example, from your todo app.

See the website on how to integrate One Thing with apps like Reminders, Things, etc.

The app is free without ads because I love making apps. Consider leaving a nice review.

You can contact me through the feedback button in the app.
