Things 3.4 update brings URL linking, powerful automation, and app handover

New URL linking for better automation and integration.



Cultured Code has released Things 3.4 for Mac, iPhone and iPad. The update brings a trio of new features — Linking to Things, Powerful Automation, and Handover — to the app across macOS and iOS platforms.

Things now comes with a special URL linking, as of version 3.4, that starts with “things:” and makes it easy to quickly jump to Things app from other apps. These new links can be generated from within a list or to-do. To generate a “things:” link on your Mac, just right-click any item and choose Share –> Copy Link.

Things App Update

things:///show?id=today URL will open up your Today list inside the Things app, for instance.

Furthermore, you can now trigger Things from third-party apps as well, thanks to these new links again. For instance, apps like Workflow, Launcher, or Launch Center Pro can help you create to-dos, perform searches, and so on — all from outside of the Things app.

The anatomy of Handover isn’t much different from above two features.l With this you can easily export data from other apps to Things, and use it as a Things project.

For example, the mind mapping app MindNode allows you to brainstorm your ideas and then “hand them over” as a Things project when the time is right. Other developers wanting to export data to Things can easily do so with our open source Swift library.

Things 3.4 update also enables diacritic-insensitive sarch, meaning searching for “uber” will also result “über” in search.

Things 3.4 for Mac is available for $49.99 on the Mac App Store. The iOS counterpart is priced at $19.99 for the iPad and $9.99 for the iPhone (with Apple Watch support). Trial period is available on Mac.

Selfie Scenes, Stickers, Soundtracks and more.



Apple has updated Clips app for iOS. The update adds more great content for video creation, including Selfie Scenes, Stickers, Soundtracks and more.

The new Clips iOS app brings six new Selfie Scenes that transport you into different worlds. These are 360-degree backgrounds that augment while taking selfie photos and videos. Selfie Scenes make use of Apple’s TrueDepth camera system on iOS devices, which restricts the feature to iPhone X and above models, and the new iPad Pro.

You can blend seamlessly into a variety of scenes, including a beautiful rainforest, a mad scientist’s lab, and even an action-packed scene from Disney Pixar’s Incredibles 2, thanks to the Neural Engine on Apple’s Bionic chips.

Amongst the new additions, Clips now has three new real-time filters that transform video clips into black-and-white comic books, monochrome watercolor paintings, and aged film.

There’s a bunch of new stickers and text labels in tow to use in videos. If that’s not enough, Apple has also added 17 new royalty-free soundtracks to compliment the videos that you’ll be making. Moreover, the newly-added posters lets you create great-looking video title cards with designs including science, sports and even Disney Pixar’s Incredibles 2 and Coco.

Apple Clips 2.0.5 is available to download as a free update on the App Store. Happy updating!
