Studio Software News: Cultured Code
Cultured Code, of Germany, the award-winning software developers of Things for iPhone, Things for iPad and Things for Mac, have recently released a unified Things 2.0 for iPad, iPhone and Mac. With this important release comes Things Cloud, a new cloud service for free that keeps your Things “data” in the cloud and perfectly synced between all your Things apps on any device.
This means your To-Dos and notes from Things 2 on the Mac get synced automatically with your Things 2 on iPad or iPhone. And vice versa! At Architosh we have been using Things for quite some time and the new Things Cloud and Things 2.0 works very well. Everything you could want to keep your organized! We’re pretty darn happy with it. We think it makes a great organizing tool and task manager–essentials for effective project management.
