Things Cloud Sync Beta Begins–But Is It Too Late?

Things is one of the best ‘Get Things Done’ (GTD) apps (read our Things vs OmniFocus review here), and the group at Cultured Code has finally announced Things Cloud Sync Beta has officially kicked off. Unlike OmniFocus (the most powerful GTD app), cloud sync solutions have been delayed for Things to the point where it has pushed users away.

The new Cloud Sync Beta is limited to the first round of testers. There are some questions that have been answered about the direction Cultured Code is taking with this. It hasn’t been determined if there will or will not be a charge for the service. Also, DropBox and MobileMe have already been eliminated as cloud sync solutions.

I wish Cultured Code the best with their beta test of Cloud Sync. It’s long overdue, and has been their achilles heel in my opinion. I would’ve liked to have Cloud Sync work with either DropBox or MobileMe. It’s a simple solution that continues to work for OmniFocus and 1Password, without a hitch at all. By the time Cloud Sync is finally released, Things could be already behind in the competitive game of GTD apps, as competitors such as Wunderlist (as discussed on Episode 28 of The iPhone Podcast) are free to begin with and include cloud syncing.

Are you still using Things? What do you think about Cloud Sync? Is it too late or will you still wait?
