Editors’ Notes

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.

was pretty good. i still use it but after having it for a few years i’ve got like upwards of 50 lists in there. wish there was some batch managing features. “combine lists” or “export lists” to standard text files would make this useful again. or in keeping with that original “check it off and get it out of your life” spirit (though i hardly use the app for that kind of stuff anyway) you could have an “auto-delete lists after x days” feature. or even an “archive.” “auto-archive list after 30 days” “auto delete archive after 1 year or user approval” type of thing.

fix icloud. recently stopped working for no reason.

Feature less

I've used this app for years. It's beautiful, fairly intuitive, and very fluid. But it lacks features. Something as simple as sharing a list? Nah, look elsewhere. No sharing, no more Apple Watch support, bugs (adding or removing things causes the view to jump to the bottom...), and some shady practices in the past all add up to it being time to move on. I downloaded AnyList. While it isn't as pretty, it actually DOES things you need it to do. For some reason, that's important.
