Since its launch in January 2012 Clear has won numerous awards and continues to receive critical acclaim. Here’s just some of the nice things that the press have written about Clear:
“Clear’s interface is elegant and clever…” — The New York Times
“Clear is quick, simple, intuitive, and perfect for busy people” — Gizmodo
“If you’re regularly turning to a simple to-do list app… Clear is definitely going to wow you.” — TechCrunch

What's New in Version 1.6.1
This update includes the Clear icon you know and love, and fixes a couple of issues reported by you, our awesome customers. Thanks for supporting Clear this year - we’ve got a lot more to share with you in 2015, so stay productive and Use Clear! xx
Logos and icons are important and with a product like Clear the icon is, for most, the only thing to fuss over since the product is great. Successful logos and icons survive for decades with only very small changes. You can spot the original Clear logo amongst pages of other icons. Product RED is a charity logo not an app logo. I for one am grateful I’ve got the logo back that stands out in a crowd. Thanks.
I paid for this because I wanted to support the charity. The original icon was distinctive amongst the other apps, this one is, well, RED, and thus doesn’t stand out. No problem, I thought I could just delete and re-install the original, but that has been removed from the UK app store. Yet another knee-jerk bad marketing decision by the developers. Good basic product but some dim-witted decisions being taken that end up alienating some customers. Annoying.
I use Clear every day. It’s my jotter pad, and helps me keep my thoughts all in one place, and easy to find when I need them later. The ONE thing I’d change is the email function. On the iPhone you access this by shaking the phone. I had to Google this. For me, shaking the phone is not a normal, intuitive access-point. It would never have occurred to me. Never. What I’d expected, was that I could somehow ’select’ a list, and maybe with a two-finger touch access the email function. Now I know to shake, it’s fine, but I’d like to have found it by intuition. Maybe that’s asking too much, but that’s sort-of how iOS is sold - that no one needs a manual. All that said, I love Clear and will stick with it until I run out of ideas. Clear? Good.
Great app and I like everything about the UI and practicality. Love the themes and was happy to receive a complimentary colour just for using the app. It takes great advantage of a touch screen and makes things feel effortless.
The reason for not giving this a 5 star is because I find it hard to retrieve the reminder once in the app. It shows you a red numbered badge next to the app icon when on the home screen but once in the app there is no other reminder or highlight to what the reminder is or was! Kind of hard to explain but if you do not look at the reminder straight away then it is easily lost. Maybe a different colour to highlight the outstanding reminders within the app?
