Realmac Software Comes Clean About Clear - Moves to a Single Universal App and Will Go Free for a Limited Time

Posted by Rob Rich on February 18th, 2014

It's been a bit of a long and bumpy road for Realmac Software after they released Clear+ on the App Store last year. First there was the issue with removing the original version to make way for the universal build, then there was confusion when they put the original back up and users weren't sure which version they needed. However a plan is in motion to straighten all of this out once and for all.

The details can be found on Realmac's website, but the gist of it is that they're going to cut it back to one single universal app - making the original Clear iPad compatible. Current users won't need to do anything as this will just roll out as a regular update. For users looking to switch over without having to pay for the change, Realmac will be dropping the app's price to free for a couple of days over the coming weeks. If you'd like to be notified of when you can jump in and grab your free "upgrade" (of a sort), you can sign up to receive an email notification at the bottom of this page.

Clear, the gloriously minimal To-Do list, is getting an update today for iOS 7.

The new and improved Clear sports a number of improvements, first and foremost being a universal build that works on both the iPad and now the iPhone. The app will also take advantage of iOS 7's new dynamic text options that let users select their preferred type size, includes even more themes for users to customize their lists with, and will sync with iCloud across all iOS devices (and even syncs information with Clear on the Mac).

Realmac Software's app was pretty handy before, but now it can be handy across all your iOS devices. And don't fret, current users, reminders are next on the list!

Clear received a new update that allows you to email your lists, one of the biggest requests from fans of the app. All you need to do is simply shake your phone (or do a quick dance and shake) to bring up the new email options.

Emails will then contain your to-do lists, which can be sent to other Clear users via email for them to open up in their own Clear app. If that didn't shake you up enough, Clear will be coming soon to the iPad.

Clear Adds New Features, Hidden Gamification Easter Eggs

Productivity app Clear is one of the most talked about to-do apps of the last year, and has just released an update that brings features like iCloud storage for to-do lists, easy quotation sharing on Facebook and Twitter, Clear for Mac OS, list pasting abilities, and an API that will let other apps send lists to Clear.

In a more interesting blog post over at TouchArcade, however, it seems as if the developers of Clear have hidden some pretty cool gamification features as well. In addition to the achievements already present in Clear, like unlocking a special theme for completing 100 tasks, there are some extra unlocks that only happen if you have other apps installed.

Now here's the cool part, the part that reveals Clear's affinity for games. Today's update has within it the seeds of three other unlocks. Each one ties into a game: The Heist, Temple Run and Bumpy Road. Those games will need to update before this works (The Heist's update should come mid-week, and the others are on the way), but once they do we'll get new themes in Clear for each of those games we have installed.

This is the kind of innovation that made Clear such a huge hit when it released. Well, that and the amazing user interface. Clear is available in the App Store now for $1.99. Check it out if this intrigues you as much as it does us.

To-Do List App, Clear, Looks Nice

Posted by Phillip Levin on January 30th, 2012

Realmac Software updated its website this week with a page devoted to its newest app, Clear. The company’s page on the app doesn’t contain a lot of information yet. All we know is that the app is “coming soon,” and thanks to a teaser trailer on the site, the developer has produced one slick-looking app.

Clear is a to-do list app, and it looks to fill a much-needed hole on the App Store, in my opinion. Indeed, despite there being tremendous innovation in app development, I feel this is one area that app developers haven’t really nailed. For whatever reason, I’ve yet to fall in love with any tasking app I’ve tried. But it looks like Clear has a fair shot at being the very thing I’m looking for.

As said before, there’s little information on the app yet. Just a teaser trailer to go by. But I like what I see. First off, Clear has a very clean, color-themed interface. The minimalist approach appears to make entering and sorting through tasks effortless. The teaser shows a guy in a coffee shop, browsing through tasks like “buy groceries” and “pick up dry cleaning.” Each task is represented by different shades of orange. Users can create a new task by expanding space in between tasks, allowing quick organization. Simply tapping on a task allows users to edit it, while swiping one turns it the color green, marking it as completed and thereby deleting it.

Most of the video shows the guy entering new tasks and deleting old ones, but it also offers a quick glimpse of what appears to be a category system. The actor in the video has a setup including a “Things to Do,” “Shopping List” and “Movies to Watch.” So, even though the app appears to be minimalist in its design, Realmac Software hasn’t left out important functionality like this.

No word yet on a price point – or an exact release date yet – but I can’t wait to download this one.

Check out the trailer below.
