Things now supports a special kind of link (or URL) that starts
with “things:”. These links are just like the ones you use every
day on the web, except they allow you to send a variety of
commands to Things.
Here’s an example:
<things:///show?id=today>. Tapping this link will
open Things and tell it to show your Today list. Try it now if you
already have Things 3.4 installed.
This is pretty neat, and they’ve gone out of their way to make these URLs easy to create and understand, with a nifty helper tool and ample documentation.
And this is in addition to solid AppleScript support on the Mac, which I think Things has had for years. But there is no AppleScript on iOS, so for cross-platform automation, these URLs are an interesting alternative.
