23 April 2015

Popular to-do list manager.

Overview

With Clear, to-do list management is clean and simple.

Life is messy. Keep it together with Clear, the amazing app for list-keeping that is unbelievably simple, quick and satisfying to use.

Clear for Mac stores your lists in iCloud so you can use them on your Mac, or on the go using Clear for iPhone.

Clear is designed with simplicity and flexibility in mind and works great with any list you throw at it!

Try it with a:

  • Personal todo list
  • Shopping list
  • Quick notes list for phone numbers and things
  • List of movies to watch, or books to read
  • Guest list for that party
  • Bucket list for those big life goals

We became obsessed with how to simplify our lives without adding clutter... Our solution is Clear.

Give it a try and tell us what you think - and check out the video here.

Good but I wish the window would remain 'hidden' when I tell it to instead randomly opening, gets incredibly annoying after a while.

FWIW: from the RealMacSoftware Blog (posted mid-November 2015): "Clear is a great product, it's used and loved by people all over the world. However, one of the things that has been plaguing Clear is a reliable sync engine. We know our users have suffered because we chose to go with iCloud. But I have good news for you: fixing sync has been a high priority for us for quite some time now. Over the last few months we've been working on transitioning from the current iCloud sync (which uses iCloud Drive, previously iCloud Documents & Data) to use the newer CloudKit technology. Initial signs indicate that this will make sync a lot more reliable. It will also be our last attempt at sticking with Apple's cloud sync technology. I don't have a timeframe for when we'll ship this new sync update, but I just wanted to let you know that it's in the works. After we've "fixed sync", we'll be back to adding new features and more timely updates to Clear."

I like the iPad version of Clear, but the OSX version has always felt unsatisfactory. It's like the iPhone version running in an emulator, with no real thought given to the different UI needed on a desktop computer. Worse, though, is the poor syncing (via iCloud) between iOS and OSX. I'll update some lists on my iPad, then open Clear on my Mac expecting the changes to be synced across, but instead the changes either get reverted or I end up with some muddled confusion of the two versions. Until Realmac give this Mac version a thorough overhaul I've switched to Wunderlist - less pretty but it seems to work.

I think Clear (on both iOS and OS X) is fast becoming abandonware. I've emailed Realmac about the sync issues and they gave me some odd road map about restarting devices, turning sync off/on; all the things you'd normally do to try to rectify the situation. Nothing fixes it.

Apparently it's widespread, because all of the sites I go to that review it (including Apple's App Store) include commentary on broken sync'ing.

This was the big selling point for this app for me; I could be at my Mac and add something to my grocery list and know that it would be on my phone, or be reading on my iPad and add something to my morning to-do list and it'd show up on all the devices.

I've tried other task managers and none do this -- or, rather, did this -- so simply.

I sure hope hey fix this, and soon.

When I run Clear now on any of my Macs I get constant popup alerts saying "iCloud Refresh Failed". The only way to use the app at all seems to be by disabling syncing.

Can't retrieve lists from email in El Capitan Mail or Outlook 2016. No way to back up lists OS X, also no way to keep completed items in list when emailing the lists. Too bad because otherwise it is a good app.

Just keeps crashing on OSX 10.9.4 Can't see the point. Gave it two stars simply because it is from the same stable as the brilliant, but extraordinarily expensive EMBER - which hasn't crashed - yet.

I like and use Clear on my iPhone for simple lists (shopping, traveling and so on). I would use Clear for Mac but it does not support AppleScript (lists, tasks, new tasks). Clear + Alfred 2 workflow would be great… :)

Good app. Horrible business model. Mac app has stayed the same, but iOS? First it was Clear, then Clear+, then back to Clear. They can't seem to make up their mind and after paying my money, I have made up my mind: I'm trashing it all. I just don't like developers who seem more intent on shafting their customers than anything else.

Trashed! Can't stand this thing anymore, it's just a pain the a####. Contacted Support about 4 days ago and haven't heard back. So buggy app with absolutely no support. If I could downgrade it to a singe star I would.

Darn Cool! I use it on my desktop computer and it has replaced my trusty old to do app TaskPaper. Like it a lot as long as you keep it simple.

After working with this app for a while, I think the only thing I would improve on it is to provide and option to protect tasks that have been completed from being so easily deleted. I keep them as a history of what was done and allows me to keep track. As is it's far too easy to accidentally click in that gray area and "click to clear" (delete) when scrolling down.
