Things 2.1.1

Send Article to a Friend

Cultured Code has released Things 2.1.1, bringing some elements from the iOS Reminders app to the Mac task management app. In particular, the update now displays a compass arrow to indicate location-based to-dos as well as an Import All button. Things 2.1.1 also adds fuzzy search results for characters with diacritics (such as ü, ç, ñ, etc.), fixes a problem with repeating projects not getting grouped under the Scheduled heading; fixes an issue with Reminders and Siri that caused excessive memory usage; squashed a bug that crashed the app when expanding or collapsing the active projects list in the sidebar; ensures the inbox badge is updated after marking an inbox to-do complete; and improves the German, French, Japanese and Russian localizations. Normally priced at $49.99, Cultured Code is offering Things at half price ($24.99) from both its Web site and the Mac App Store until 31 January 2013. ($49.99 new, free update, 15 MB, release notes)
