Feed Sponsor: Things by Cultured Code

This week’s Six Colors sponsor is Things, by Cultured Code. It’s a great app—we gave it an Eddy Award when I was at Macworld.

This week, Things 2.5 for iPhone and iPad is Apple’s iOS Free App of the Week. So you can get the iOS apps, normally $19.99 for iPad and $9.99 for iPhone, for free! (And they’re fully functional—there are no in-app purchases in these apps.)

This is the first time Cultured Code has ever given away Things. To complement the free iOS apps, Cultured Code is also cutting the price of Things for Mac by 30 percent for this week only.

This promotion is available globally, and ends on November 28, so don’t delay!

All three apps were recently redesigned for iOS 8 and Yosemite, with an “Add to Things” Extension, Handoff between all devices, Background Refresh on iOS, a new iOS app icon, support for iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, and a Today Widget on OS X.

And if you decide to take the Things plunge, don’t miss their Getting Started Guide, which is a quick read that’ll help you learn the basics.
