With its clean, colorful interface and intuitive swipe controls, Clear makes managing to-do lists across multiple devices lightning-fast and almost effortless. Its rainbow-hued checklists are like miniature works of art, making it simple to tell at a glance what you need to do and how urgently you need to do it. Bells? Whistles? Nah, but that’s by design. The developers knows that creating a to-do list is about managing chores, not creating new ones.
Great App, medium problems
I love the feel and layout to this app. I can organize and see my individual lists in a simple way. BUT it is missing 1 big thing and has 1 minor annoyance.
It is missing the ability to have daily repeating lists. If you don’t intend to have everyday repeating things on this app, then ignore this part and see the annoyance below. However I have a daily list for the things I need/want to accomplish every common day, but I can’t mark each item complete or I’ll have to retype them tomorrow. Why can’t I set daily repeating reminders for the same time for at least 1 list?!
I just don’t touch my daily list, I look at it and it’s ordered how I go about it and I just have to know what is and isn’t done.
The annoyance....I like the dark purple theme, it looks great on my lists. But my upper tier list (the list of your lists) doesn’t follow that theme, that tier is ugly bright yellow/orange that I can’t read well, so I can’t use the purple theme on my lower lists because of its opposite effect on the upper tier. If the theme I choose isn’t going to be universal across all my lists, then let me at least change the other tier theme to something else. The dark themes are the only ones that stay constant on both tiers. I’ll stick with boring black or noir until that’s fixed....
Love the app
I have been using this app for many years. According to the App Store I first put it on my phone back in May, 2013 (WOW really THAT long?!) and I gotta say it’s pretty great. I have tried, and subsequently deleted, untold numbers of list apps. What keeps bringing me back (or making me never leave) Clear is the absolute simplicity. It lets me make lists like I would on paper, and delete/cross off, my choice. Themes, whatever, I don’t care. I want it easy to use and easy on my eyes, and this 90% succeeds.
Unfortunately, I was forced to take a star away due to the last update removing Apple Watch support. I understand the need to do so, and honestly I didn’t use the feature THAT often, but the times that I did use it (phone in another room, phone in pocket, during meetings, etc.) it was quite helpful. Obviously this review will be amended once it returns (or if it never returns). Just sayin’
Anyway, love the app. Cautiously optimistic about what is to come (a lot of times developers “improve” their apps and they get considerably worse, see Dark Sky weather as a current example), hoping if there are major changes in store, there will at least always be a way to use it as my simple, list-making app!!
