I have used many to-do apps. This is the best for me so far. I have it on my iPhone & Mac. It syncs between them. I have used it for about 18 months now. Usually I dump a to-do app after a month or so. After using it for a year I tried another well regarded to-do app and used it for about 3 months. But then I dumped that one and came back to Clear. I love the interface & the swipes. I love that you can name and re-name your lists. With some apps you are stuck with their list names. I highly reccommend it. My wife has just started using it on her devices and is very happy with it. It also has reminders if you want but I have not used that feature.
Improvements I hope to see a) on iOS the ability to move an item from one list to another easily without the laborious actions of select, select all, copy, escape, go to the new list, create a new item, and paste. On the Mac OS X you can just drag the item from one list to another (which is fantastic) but not on iOS.
b) on the Mac, deleting a task is a bit hit or miss for me and so I usually just delete tasks on the iPhone which then syncs to the Mac.
Overall for me this is a 5 star app and is one of my most used apps on a daily basis. Just pay the money. It is worth every penny.

Excellent for iPad, good for desktop and iPhone. An honest loving review.

I absolutely love Clear for iPad and have been using it consistently for more than a year. Its iPad version lets you create many lists, add multiple tasks to each list, move tasks between lists, set reminders, and rank both lists and tasks in order of importance as indicated via color gradation. Its visually intuitive and the predictive text is quite good too.

The ability to move tasks between lists is a feature only on the iPad, and is sorely lacking on both the desktop and iphone versions. I don’t mind it so much on the iPhone as I mainly use that to cross of tasks as I move about. Only on the iPad can I reorder and reprioritize my tasks with ease. If they fix the desktop version to be more like the iPad, this review will go up to five stars.

I fixed my syncing issue by turning the Sync option off, letting it sit, turning it back on and then not using the program on any device for about 4 hours. If it makes you delete your lists before disengaging from the cloud, simply export your lists to email and them reimport when it is all fixed.

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.
