What's New in Version 2.0.1

Things 2.0.1: 

• Things Cloud now updates your to-dos even faster.
• Improved stability and bug fixes.


Things 2 is a free update for all existing customers. 

★ Introducing Things Cloud. Your to-dos on all your devices. Never worry about syncing again. Things Cloud stores your to-dos and automatically keeps them up-to-date on your Mac, iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. Just go to Things' Settings and turn on Things Cloud. 

★ The all-new Daily Review helps you stay on top of your day. See everything that needs your attention at a glance. To-dos that are due or scheduled for today appear automatically at the top of your Today list. Easily review them and make a decision. Pick the ones to start today and postpone the rest until later. 

★ A revolutionary scrolling Date Picker makes selecting dates more natural than ever. Instead of splitting the calendar into months, the scrolling date picker combines them into a continuous stream. So the next few weeks are always just one tap away - and everything beyond, just a scroll. 

★ And much more: 
• A refreshing new look. Some great visual refinements make working with your to-dos a pleasure. 
• Cancel To-Dos. If you decide not to complete a to-do, tap and hold its checkbox. 
• Log Immediately. To-dos can now be moved to the Logbook automatically as soon as you complete them. 
• Projects in Today. Add whole projects to Today instead of just single to-dos. 
• First Day of the Week. Choose the first day of your week independently of your device’s default setting. 
• Calendar Weeks. If you rely on numbered calendar weeks, just rotate the new date picker to landscape orientation. 
• Accessibility. Much improved accessibility when using VoiceOver. 
• New Engine. A re-engineered core for a blazingly fast Things Cloud performance. 

Please note: 
• Things Cloud replaces the old Bonjour Sync. 
• This update requires iOS 5 or later. 

If you have any questions, please contact support through our website.

Things is a delightful and easy to use task manager. It's the perfect companion for everything you want to achieve in life, offering a great balance between ease of use and powerful features.

"Things sets itself apart in flexibility and ease.” - O'Reilly, Best iPhone Apps

"Things definitely tops our list of GTD applications for the iPhone." - Cory Bohon, Mac|Life ★★★★★

“If Things sounds simple, that's because it is. Other to-do list managers I've tried have, quite honestly, gotten in the way of me getting things done. Things doesn't do that. And I wouldn't have it any other way.” - Macworld ★★★★

FEATURES


When you start using Things, you'll be surprised how easy it is to enter and manage your tasks. And with Things' beautiful interface, task management becomes a delight. But all of this doesn't come at the expense of power – everything you wish for in a task manager, Things has you covered.

• Today: Decide which tasks you want to do today and put them into your Today list. Throughout the day, come back to this list to check items off. Things will automatically show you due and scheduled items there once their date arrives - so you won't miss anything important.

• Focus: See what you need to do Today, what's coming up Next, and what's Scheduled for later. Put tasks in Someday if you can't work on them right now, you can always come back to them later.

• Keep organized: Work, Family, Hobby - with Things, everything has its place. Projects and Areas of Responsibility let you master complex tasks and stay on top of your responsibilities in life and work.

• Use Tags to assign contexts, priorities, time – whatever fits your personal workflow. Quickly filter a list to find those tasks which are most relevant now.

• Out of your head, into Things: Enter new ideas the moment they hit you. Adding to-dos is always just a tap away.

• And much more: Create repeating tasks, add due dates, schedule tasks for a later date, review completed tasks in the Logbook, etc.

iHandy Carpenter By iHandy Inc.
There's no need to wear a bulky tool belt anymore since this app comes complete with five different tools that fit in the palm of your hand. Use the bubble level to verify if your floor tile installations are flat or recently hung pictures are remotely even, and try out the protractor for planning bathroom renovations and roofing projects. There's no Allen wrench, so don't expect any help setting up that IKEA bedroom set. (iHandyCarpenter, $1.99)

"Really handy and I like the style of the user experience a lot. I'm a picky user but I have to say these tools are nicely done and worth the price." - our customer

You can hear from app reviewers and happy users:

"Not only are these tools functional, they're also gorgeous, with woodgrain and lighting effects that makes them seem straight out of Leonardo da Vinci's workshop." - O'Reilly Media, "Best iPhone Apps"

***************************************************

There are 5 tools in this Carpenter tool kit:

- A plumb bob, the easiest way for you to verify the verticality of lines or walls
- A surface level, the best tool to level any flat surface 
- A bubble level bar, exactly as you can see in carpenter tool kit shops, and more beautiful!
- A steel protractor, measuring angles from 0 to 180 degrees.
- A steel ruler, supporting both inches and centimeters. By swiping it left and right, the ruler is capable to measure things much longer than your iPhone!
- Once calibrated, the plumb bob, surface level and level bar can also be used as an inclinometer/clinometer by reading the angles on the screen.

Enjoy!

***************************************************

A few tips for better use of iHandy Carpenter:


- THE PLUMB BOB, SURFACE LEVEL AND BUBBLE LEVEL BAR
Calibrate it first before any serious usage!

- USE THE PLUMB BOB TO MEASURE THE VERTICALITY OF A WALL
Two ways to test the verticality of a wall:
1. Put your iPhone back-to-back onto the wall you measure (Recommended). 
If the shadow of the plumb bob is on X axis (y equals zero), it then indicates your wall is perfectly straight and vertical to the ground. Please note that in this way the reading of "x" does NOT have to be zero.
The back of 3G iPhone is not totally flat. But it's accurate enough just to use the flat part of your 3G iPhone.
2. Put one edge of your iPhone on the wall you measure.
If the shadow of the plumb bob is on Y axis (x equals zero), it then indicates your wall is perfectly straight and vertical to the ground. Please note that in this way the reading of "y" does NOT have to be zero.

- HOW TO MEASURE THE SLOPE OF A SURFACE
A few ways to measure the slope of a surface:
1. Use the Surface Level (Recommended).
Put your iphone onto the inclined surface (The edge of iPhone should be in line with the slope direction of the surface. To verify this, just to check whether the reading of "y" is around zero).
The reading of "x" is the slope angle of the measured surface.
2. Use the bubble level bar
Put one edge or back of your iPhone stick to the inclined surface (The edge of iPhone should be in line with the slope direction of the surface).
The reading is the slope angle of the measured surface.

If the surface is almost vertical to the ground, we suggest that you use the plumb bob tool to measure the surface instead.
