The creators behind the popular task manager app, Things, are about to make its customers very happy. They will soon begin beta testing wireless syncing for its Mac, iPhone/iPod touch, and iPad apps, according to news first reported by iDownloadBlog. Created by Cultured Code, Things is one of the top-selling applications both in the App Store and Mac App Store. However, until now, users could not sync their to-dos, notes, due dates, and projects across multiple platforms. Beginning August 22, the company will begin sending out invitations to some of its customers asking them to begin using their wireless syncing feature. Thereafter, the feature will be available for all customers at no additional charge. Cloud syncing is nothing new in the task manager industry. In fact, competitors such as Wunderlist and OmniFocus have offered this service to its customers for sometime. Therefore, while we’re happy to hear Things will finally offer this solution as well, we wonder what took so long. According to iDownloadBlog, while this development is good news, it doesn’t mean Things will include the feature anytime soon. They state:
Another problem with the way Cultured Code works is that you never really know when they’ll finally have a new feature added to Things. They’re notorious for promising features and never delivering. They finally started allowing users to test cloud sync on the Mac-only version of Things some months back, and they have yet to even open that feature up to their entire customer base.Hopefully, the wireless syncing feature will arrive for all customers sooner, rather than later.
