Cultured Code has released Things 2.2, improving overall performance to make the Mac task management app more responsive. The update also speeds up downloading of to-do items from Things Cloud and improves handling of dates when traveling between time zones, ensuring scheduled dates, due dates, repeating tasks, local notifications, and the Daily Review show up at the correct time for the time zone you are in. Other improvements include better handling of email messages that have been dropped onto the app’s dock icon (or notes field), behavior of contextual menus in text fields, formatting of dates in the Logbook, and indicating when the app is offline. The release also fixes an issue where AppleScript-generated to-dos could appear out of order, an issue that randomized items in Schedule and the Daily Review, and a crash that occurred when creating tags with certain characters. ($49.99 new from Cultured Code and the Mac App Store, free update, 16.3 MB, release notes)
