Clear – Tasks, Reminders & To-Do Lists
By Realmac Software
Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.
Over 2.5 million people de-clutter their lives with Clear, so stop stalling and start organizing your daily routine.
Clear is the revolutionary to-do and reminders app that makes you more productive. Just start typing to add to-dos, and once you start organizing your life with Clear you’ll wonder how you ever managed without it.
- Simple gestural design that allows you to focus on your to-dos. Designed for the Magic Trackpad, but works great with a mouse too!
- Full keyboard navigation. Just start typing to create to-dos.
- Use separate lists to organize every aspect of your life.
- iCloud sync built-in so you can be productive everywhere.
- Set reminders so you’ll never forget important tasks.
- Personalize your Clear lists with themes and make them your own.
- Syncs with Clear for iOS (available separately on the App Store).
Clear is built by a small team, dedicated to bringing you frequent free feature updates. We’d love to know how we can make you even more productive, so get in touch via the App Store “Support” link, or tweet us @UseClear.
Clear for Mac and Clear for iOS are not affiliated with or endorsed by CLEAR Wireless.
What's New in Version 1.1.6
- Handoff support
- Allows you to use the “Edition” theme when unlocked via iCloud from Clear for iOS.
💩 Lists get trapped in the app, can only be emailed. iCloud sync works poorly
Clear has a lot of potential to be a great indispensible tool, but I’m now considering other options because of the lack of some basic functionality.
Do you want to copy a list from clear and paste it into another app? Sorry. There is exactly one way to get lists out of the Clear app. You must EMAIL it to yourself. On top of that, the email Clear creates is heavily formatted, so you STILL CAN’T COPY AND PASTE THE LIST without a lot of garbage and hand editing. This app has been around for several years, and it still can’t do this. I see nothing difficult about implementing such a basic feature. For some reason the developers have not included this and it is very frustrating.
Also, icloud sync between devices works poorly. On more than one occasion I have the iphone and mac version open and icloud enabled on both devices but they do not sync up even after forcing them to sync (which involves a special dance to be performed).
Great app, but needs work.
iOS apps work really, really well and do provide value. Syncing has always worked fine for me between mac and iOS. My complaint with the mac version of clear is that half of the gestures quit working after the first couple of days. In the beginning I could pinch on my trackpad and it would close the list, just like the iOS version. However this stopped working after a couple of days. I have contacted support and received a very generic “We are aware of the issue and are working on it, thanks for using clear.” respose. Two months and one update later, no fix. As a developer I can’t understand why it would be so difficult to fix this for a company that employs full time developers to work solely on this one product. Please fix it.
Really…you didn’t fix the sync problem?
Obviously you folks value aethetics over acutal functionality. This sync problem is getting really old, and I can’t believe you didn’t address it in this version. But hey, we got a new color theme! :(
I think I’m going back to Things for Mac. It wasn’t as pretty, but it WORKED and allowed more details to be provided for each task such as URLs, Phone numbers, Email addresses, locations…you know basic info that’s usually accociated with a task.
Also…I wish I could turn off the pretentious puedo-intellectual quotes. I’m not a fan of any of those snobs. Why am I forced to read their rubage when I complete a task?
