It's the ToDo App I Keep Coming Back To
This is a great app for creating simple, clear to do lists without a lot of fuss. It's like making a list on a sheet of paper - that fast and easy. I tried a lot of other to do apps, and realized I didn't use or need the majority of features they offered (due dates, priority, etc). Task entries in those other apps was so time consuming, so I'd end up not using them.
With clear you can add tasks quickly and with no fuss. The gesture-based features of the app were pretty easy to figure out. I use this app for both basic lists (such as lists for grocery shopping) and more detailed to-do lists for work.
Update: I stopped using clear for awhile but have returned. I've tried so many todo apps. At least 10 different ones. I've spent a lot of money trying these different apps. I even tried to use Evernote (which I love as a notetaking app) as a todo app. Nothing works as well as clear. The big issue I have with many todo apps is that it's just too complicated to enter in a new task. That's what often keeps from using them. I don't have 5 minutes to enter in a task. I need to be able to do it in 30 seconds. Clear makes this possible. The addition of a "reminder" feature and the widget makes this app even better. I'm sticking with this as my todo app because it works.
Be CLEAR what this is
I personally have used many to-do apps. From the wide and many types, I can say personally this is my favorite. It's simplicity is the biggest standout. Many low reviews for this app state how $5 is too much for such little features. Simply put, they need to be ready for steeper prices for such apps. The beauty of this app is the simplicity and clean interface. Even though I like to think of myself as understanding and familiarizing with apps very quickly, other to-do's are simply too overwhelming. When I'm trying to get through a busy day, I need a simple app for simple reminders. Ultimately, Clear has what I am looking for with minimal clutter and knobs that others are referring to: two levels of categorization for tasks and reminders. Bam. That's it. If you want more, please look carefully into an app that costs money before purchasing with expectations. Not to be insensitive, but it is fairly clear what this app offers and that it is a minimal, yet refreshingly simple, to-do app.
Great UI, terrible syncing.
Clear has the best UI of any todo app. It's thoughtful, easy to use, and maps to my mental model about how to think of tasks (I would love it he ability to easily move tasks from one list to another on the phone though). If you're going to use it only on a single device it's a 5 star app without hesitation.
However, with syncing it's like an abusive relationship. You want to leave because it keeps hurting you, but you keep getting pulled back when it apologizes. Expect to have to enable the advanced debug menu and wipe and clear all your devices every week or so. Or realize iCloud has turned itself off. And the prompt for this negative review is that in the last juggling of settings, it lost all of my stored list items that were marked as completed. I had extensive checklists that I would cross off but leave the completed items, to re enable later and every single one of them is empty now.
If you need syncing, avoid the heartache. You will lose data and you will spend more time troubleshooting sync than you gain from it.
