Today, the Things Cloud beta goes public – an invitation is no longer required. If you’re interested in trying it out, just visit the page below and follow the instructions:
Since we announced the beta, more than 35,000 people have signed up to become test pilots. Over the past months, we’ve gradually been inviting more and more people. Today, we sent out the final batch of invitations. All applicants now have access to the beta on both Mac & iOS.
Our next milestone is to enable the import of existing databases into the beta. Until then the beta continues to use an extra database, leaving users’ existing data untouched.
We’ve had incredible feedback from our users, telling us that Things Cloud is proving to be both fast and stable. Some of our users have adopted the beta entirely and created exceptionally large databases. In the coming weeks we are going to work out some kinks and performance bottlenecks related to such large databases. This is an important final step towards enabling the import of existing data. Once the import feature is ready, we’ll post another update.
Thank you all for your continued support, and for your help in testing Things Cloud.
