Editors’ Notes

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.

Ten something years later, it’s still my favorite…

I’m shocked this has so few reviews because I’ve literally used this off and on for ten years & nothing compares. The elegance and simplicity of the design are particularly useful for anyone with ADD/ADHD. How many times a day do you reach for your phone to do one thing and then found yourself doing something else, only to ask yourself ‘what was I about to do?’ When I use this consistently, I find myself doing that far less. Paper lists are great for ADD folks, but you have to keep up with a pen and paper, whereas we always have our phones on us. Swiping complete on this and seeing the completed items is particularly useful for grocery lists as another reviewer mentione, as well as recurring to do’s. It’s also the closest you can get in the digital realm to the satisfaction & sense of progress of crossing something out on a physical list. Before my children too over the iPads, I loved the ability to sync across devices. I’ve come to appreciate its visual simplicity even more as I reach the dreaded ‘where are my reading glasses?’ era of my life.

I am so appreciative that they’ve done the update to keep this app alive as our devices continue to evolve. Thank you to the creators of this app and to those who keep it rolling 💞

Thank you for the update!! This app is essential!

I have been using the Clear app since 2012. I don’t expect it to do everything but for keeping quickly entered lists, it’s perfect. Shopping lists, gift ideas, quick to do lists, etc. Best thing about the app is it’s elegant simplicity! Once you know the gestures which are all pretty easy, they’re second nature to use and mostly swipes, so easy one-handed.

One of my favorite features is that I can bring back a completed item with a swipe, so when I’m picking of groceries, I can see what I bought before and quickly throw some of my staple items back on the list.

The app broke with iOS 16 and I desperately pleaded for an upgrade (along with everyone else) and finally gave up after months of waiting and switched to using Notes (good but not perfect). I’m thrilled you guys have fixed the app! This app may be simple but it is one of the best.
