Brian on the Omnigroup Blog about their sync servers coming out of beta:

We’ve had the server up for almost two years now – it launched way back in April of 2010. In that time[…]

Imma let you finish, but first let me finish that sentence for you.

In that time:

  1. Cultured Code (makers of Things) wrote post after post about how syncing is really hard.
  2. Cultured Code (makers of Things) actually shipped a beta version of their syncing engine for just Things — surprised me too.

In other words the Omnigroup ran a very stable (in this testers opinion) sync service that grew to more than just one app, while Things just launched a beta version of sync.

Ok, go ahead with the good news Brian:

Oh, and did we mention that you can have this all for the low, low price of zero? One of the things we learned is that we can build and run a service like this without needing to charge for it.

Great work guys.
