New App: Clear

Clear for iPhone – Available Now! from Realmac Software on Vimeo.

I typically avoid list building apps.  There’s work, play, and the Sunday must-do chore items.  That’s a lot of time list building.

But I decided to give the new Clear app a shot at prioritizing my day.

On first use the app is completely intuitive, seamless, and well designed. It accomplishes everything one needs in an app to organize their to do lists.

Here are the key features:

  • Batching:  The ability to create a master list and fold the details into it
  • Scannability:  Allows me to see all my list items at once, with the most important showing at the top of the list in the brightest color.
  • Simplicity:  Drag, drop, and delete completed tasks.

I also like the fact that it excludes any sharing features.  If you want to see your list, you need to come back to the app.  This ensures that you’ll delete finished tasks and keep your lists clean.

Clear is only 99 cents in the iTunes store.
