It's time to catch up with Cultured Code's popular task manager Things, whose latest release, version 1.3.4, fixes 14 bugs. But before taking a look at the most important fixes, it's worth noting a major change that came in the 1.3.2 release: added support for multiple device syncing with your iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. The most recent update now preserves logged items from deleted areas in the Logbook, adds a native crash-reporter, adds a confirmation dialog when attempting to delete a non-empty area, and resolves an issue that prevented items in a project without a title from being shown in the Next list. A full list of fixes can be found on Cultured Code's Web site. ($49.95 new, free update, 9 MB)
Enabling Auto Spelling Correction in Snow Leopard
In Snow Leopard, the automatic spelling correction in applications is not usually activated by default. To turn it on, make sure the cursor's insertion point is somewhere where text can be entered, and either choose Edit > Spelling and Grammar > Correct Spelling Automatically or, if the Edit menu's submenu doesn't have what you need, Control-click where you're typing and choose Spelling and Grammar > Correct Spelling Automatically from the contextual menu that appears. The latter approach is particularly likely to be necessary in Safari and other WebKit-based applications, like Mailplane.

"Recurring tasks on the iPhone are not yet implemented. They will be provided with the next major update coming out soon."
And again April 9, 2010 "We are working on the final development of the Mac version to sync recurring tasks to the iPhone and iPad. I'm sorry I can't give you an exact date, but it is coming and will be a free update."
And a second email on April 9, 2010:
"You cannot create recurring events on the iPad (although the UI is complete) since you cannot sync with the Mac yet."
The April 2010 emails were in response to my question before purchasing my THIRD copy of Things: Mac, iPhone, iPad.
Again I was mislead into spending money for a product based on the baseless assurances of Cultured Code regarding certain capabilities dating back to July 2009 and April 2010 shortly after the introduction of the iPad.
