Things has rolled out an update for iOS which means your Apple Watch will sync directly with the Things Cloud.

As reported by MacRumors:

Popular to-do app Things was updated to version 3.12 today and the big change in this release is that Things on Apple Watch now syncs directly with Things Cloud.Prior to this version, the Things app on iPhone has acted as the middleman for syncing between the ‌Apple Watch‌ app and the cloud, which could occasionally lead to out-of-date data in the Things watch app.However, Things for ‌Apple Watch‌ now syncs directly with Things Cloud, so even if you're away from your ‌iPhone‌, the watch app syncs to-dos instantly over Wi-Fi or cellular whenever they're available.

As the report notes, previously Things for Apple Watch would sync up with Things Cloud via your iPhone, but thanks to this new update it will now sync directly.

Other new features include improved quality of watch face data, including synced complications as long as you have a free Things Cloud account. You can also now add new to-dos to your list via the Apple Watch. You can also remove a to-do from your today view from the Watch. Things also now has scribble support for the Watch for adding and amending notes.

You can download Things 3 for $9.99 from the App Store now! (opens in new tab)
