What's New in Version 1.7.1
Hello, friends! We hope you’re enjoying the most recent version of Clear - whether it’s on your Apple Watch, iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch!
New in this update:
- Fixes a problem that caused some dictated reminders to be set on UTC instead of your localised timezone.
- Clear for Apple Watch no longer truncates really long tasks.
- Fixes a truncation problem in Clear’s glance on 38mm Apple Watch.
- We’ve improved the behaviour of the App Icon badge so that it updates when background changes are made to Clear (as if by magic).
- Fixes a problem where Clear’s iCloud sync would silently become deactivated.
Thanks as always for using Clear - we’re hard at work on more features, themes and more - so, stay tuned!
Still work to do.....
First, as already mentioned, the sync is unreliable. Second, the app has had an ongoing issue with data entry in landscape mode on the iPad. The problem is that data entry will allow one letter to be typed and the keyboard will disappear and data entry ends leaving you an incomplete entry. You open the entry to edit and you get to add one more letter and again the keyboard disappears. Speaking of the keyboard in landscape, it's cut off on both the right and left sides. The only "solution" I've found is to completely close the app and reopen it in the regular orientation to regain the entire keyboard then rotate back to landscape where it will work fine until the problem returns and it always does. I've removed and reinstalled clear but cannot get rid of this issue. My frustration with this app is growing. Just about ready to write it of....again....and go back to other more stable alternatives. Love the simplicity, but if these issues can't be corrected nice and for all, there's no reason to continue in wasting time with a buggy app and developer who can't or won't address the problems.
Edit:removed a star as this longstanding keyboard issue remains ignored by developer. I'm about ready to give up on this app once and for all. There are alternatives that, while not as clean and simple, they work.
Worth every penny!
This app is one of my favorite apps, it's extremely user-friendly design allows me to plan my day, week, assignments I need to do for college, and anything else that I want it to. I can have it remind me of an upcoming event or I can simply keep it in a checklist. I have tried a lot of "calendar" and "reminder" apps, and none of them measure up to Clear, not even the standard "Apple Calendar" and "Reminder" app built in to the iPhone. Another great asset is how smoothly it pairs with my Apple Watch. Overall probably the best productivity app out there, easy and fun to use. However I would advise the app designer to make the colour schemes more customizable and readily available (we paid enough for this app to be able to change the colour scheme ourselves, not to earn a new monotone colour scheme every time we do something new)
Now less broken
I returned to Clear because I just like the minimalist interface. There's no other to do list app that's simpler and lighter than this one.
Unfortunately, the iCloud sync glitches still exist, but there seems to be a workaround. The issue is that sometimes you'll make a change on one device, but that change won't sync immediately. If you make a change on that un-synced device, then it will do a sync with iCloud and download all of the changes. What I do is just check off an item and then uncheck it once things sync up. Still not acceptable, but it's an improvement over previous versions which just stopped syncing suddenly without warning. Just tolerable.
