Customer Reviews

Great app on iOS, but Mac app’s iCloud sync broken

Great use of gestures on iPhone/iPad for a really simple experience, I highly recommend if you’re using it on the go.

I can’t really recommend the Mac app version for now though. I just paid $10 for the Mac app so I could view my lists on desktop, and despite double checking all of my iCloud settings and following their troubleshooting guidelines (even the weird hidden ‘debug’ option to refresh iCloud) the Mac app is certainly not syncing with my other devices. Would love to change my review if this is resolved.

Otherwise the Mac app is alright but could use some refinement in the UX of the product. It kind of feels like an afterthought as "Pinch vertically” and “Swipe” are still in the preset tutorial list, and make no sense on desktop. I was also kind of disappointed that the iPad UI wasn’t carried over to the desktop app since it was really nicely done. Breaking out the UI to see your master lists while looking at individual ones is nice, and seems way better than hiding the navigation in a top-right menu icon.

On a Clear day. . . .

Well, you may not be able to see forever. . . but Clear will certainly help you get things done and stay focused.

Clear works pretty well for me. Though, I’d like to see some features added which, in my opinion, would make it a better product:

√ Checklists — I use Clear to make sure I do all the tasks associated with producing a little radio featurette I call Musical Notes (dot) Show. The devil is in the details and checklists are a good way of making sure all the steps in the process are taken care of.

• Bulleted lists — Sometimes you just need to bullet-ize things to see the organizational possibilities. Even better, a minimalist outliner would be wonderful.

3. Numbered lists — Yes, numbered lists help collaborators edit a list to be in the proper sequence.

- Reminders should be more specific about whether it’s a hard deadline, a milestone, or a start date.

One annoying thing about Clear is that the desktop and iOS versions don’t seem to always be in sync. Since I’m on different devices throughout the day, I need the app to talk to all of them and have the same conversation with each.

Is that Clear, Realmac Software? :)

Overall, I really enjoy using Clear. I don’t have to fight it too much to make it do my bidding as I organize my life.

Not as useful as the iOS version

Clear, as an iOS app, is enjoyable to use. The primary reason is its interface, which makes all the sense in the world on a small touchscreen. It’s intuitive, and easy to use, and fast, and attractive.

As a desktop app, it makes no sense at all. The design and interaction, even though it’s visually identical to the mobile interface, seems completely arbitrary. It’s not intuitive in the slightest. I’ve been using this app for over a year and it still takes me two mistaken guesses to perform an action before I accomplish it. The main reason for using the desktop version is for syncing with the iPhone version, and syncing is slow.

That said—I do enjoy having a desktop portal to my iPhone app. If Clear had an interface more appropriate to desktop use (perhaps visually alluding to—versus recreating—the mobile version) I’d enjoy this app a lot more.
