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)
Simplify Similar Syncs with ChronoSync Templates
You can create an unlimited number of ChronoSync documents with numerous settings and options that control your synchronizations. If you find yourself needing to create many similar ChronoSync documents, consider using templates.

Search on "template" in ChronoSync Help for all the details.

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.
