This update FINALLY fixes the bug when creating new items.
We are genuinely sorry this took so long. As someone who relies on Clear daily myself (Phill, if you wrote into support) it was anxious every day we didn’t have this fix out, understanding what you all were going through.
Thank you to everyone who wrote in and helped test the fix update. I think we received dozens of screen recordings of the issue! There were so many support emails. It was stirring how many of you still care for this little app.
P.S. For those of you who are more early adopter types and use it mainly on the phone, or were excited when we announced years ago a new version in the works, you can reach out at the support link listed on this page for a TestFlight invite to the new Clear.
Ratings and Reviews
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.
Still work to do.....
First, as already mentioned, the sync is unreliable. Second, the app has had an ongoing issue with data entry in landscape mode on the iPad. The problem is that data entry will allow one letter to be typed and the keyboard will disappear and data entry ends leaving you an incomplete entry. You open the entry to edit and you get to add one more letter and again the keyboard disappears. Speaking of the keyboard in landscape, it's cut off on both the right and left sides. The only "solution" I've found is to completely close the app and reopen it in the regular orientation to regain the entire keyboard then rotate back to landscape where it will work fine until the problem returns and it always does. I've removed and reinstalled clear but cannot get rid of this issue. My frustration with this app is growing. Just about ready to write it of....again....and go back to other more stable alternatives. Love the simplicity, but if these issues can't be corrected nice and for all, there's no reason to continue in wasting time with a buggy app and developer who can't or won't address the problems.
Edit:removed a star as this longstanding keyboard issue remains ignored by developer. I'm about ready to give up on this app once and for all. There are alternatives that, while not as clean and simple, they work.
Incredible list app
I PRAY the developers don't listen to the complainers regarding all the things the app DOESN'T do... or, at least, if they sell out, that they then include a "keep it simple" option that preserves the current functionality as is. This is the simple list keeper I've been looking for, and I've used a lot of them. I thought the new "Reminders" app was decent before I found this one. It's ridiculously easy to add items, delete them or mark them as complete. And deleting completed items? A work of art. The app with its use of gestures is great, just as it is. If the developers choose to weigh it down with detailed screens for items, stars, location-based nonsense, collaboration that require account creation and the like, I'll be very disappointed. My only knock on the app is that it has the ugliest, most obnoxious icon in the history of icons. It's an eyesore on my screen. And to think that it's derived from their "heat map" concept is further frustrating since the heat map is superfluous nonsense. The heat map is based on importance but importance is based solely on how you manually order your items. Sure, it adds color but no other purpose. Thank goodness the developers included themes else I'd not use the app. I'd not be able to work in a sea of oranges without having a come-apart. But since I can bypass that by using a different theme, my complaints boil down to just the one about the horrendous icon. Nonetheless, a 10 star app.
