I find myself checking the status of the Things development at least once a week and I’m always happy to see progress there. Even after using and trial-ing many other apps I still find that Things is the one app that works the best for me. Obviously it feels out-of-place in iOS7 but still it works fine.
Cultured Code really take their time to work on the their applications. Implementing their own sync service took them really a while but in the end it was worth it. It is one of the best sync implementation that I have seen so far and it’s very fast and reliable. Just imagine that in conjunction with iOS background sync.
Taking this into consideration I think waiting for Things 3 will be worth it. I just hope that the waiting will be over soon as I start to like the simplicity of Clear more and more.
