[prMac.com] Stuttgart, Germany - Cultured Code today released the first public preview of their task management application Things(TM). After previously 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.
"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 takes a unique approach to personal task management. It offers great flexibility through the use of tags and its intelligent filter bar. A Leopard style source list allows for quick and easy focusing. Together with a beautiful user interface, Things aims at the seemingly impossible: making task management both easy and fun.
"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."
Pricing and Availability:
Things Preview requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later and is available as a free download from the Cultured Code website. The final release is scheduled for Spring 2008 and will be priced at $49.00 USD. Newsletter subscribers who signed up before January 31, 2008 are eligible for a 20% discount, leading to a retail price of just $39.00 USD.
Cultured Code is known for its innovative web design tool Xyle scope(TM). The company was founded in 2004 by Jürgen Schweizer and Oliver Marquetant. In early 2007, Christian Krämer and Werner Jainek joined the team.
