'Things' public preview
Cultured Code today released the first public preview of Things, its task management application. After sending out private alpha invitations to more than 17,000 newsletter subscribers, today's announcement marks the second major step in the lifetime of the application, according to the company. Things Preview requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later, and is available as a free download until the final release ships in the Spring of 2008 for $40.
"Feedback from our alpha testers has been overwhelming," said Christian Krämer. "Many testers are already using Things on a daily basis and we are thrilled to open up the application to many new users."
Things is designed to offer a unique approach to personal task management with flexibility through the use of tags and an intelligent filter bar. A Leopard style source list allows for quick focusing, coupled with the user interface to make task management easy.
"The fundamental architecture of Things is now complete," said Jürgen Schweizer, Cultured Code's lead project manager for Things. "Important features such as iCal integration and recurring todos are currently being worked on and will be part of the final release."
