To-do list app Clear gets iOS 7 makeover with iCloud syncing, refreshed UI

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Popular to-do list app Clear has been updated for Apple's release of iOS 7 with a universal build that adds refined typography, new gestures and iCloud list syncing to the title's uniquely spartan interface.

Clear


With Clear for iOS 7, developer Realmac Software builds on an already winning design by tailoring the app to take advantage of Apple's latest mobile operating system.

On the surface, it appears as though not much has changed from previous iterations, but a number of backend features and tweaks have been added, the most notable being list syncing across iPhones, iPads and Macs via Apple's iCloud. This much-requested feature is a step up from the simple iCloud storage seen in the original Clear.

Realmac has also made the app universal, meaning one purchase grants both iPhone and iPad access to the automatically synced lists. Clear for iOS 7 also supports syncing with Clear for Mac and the legacy Clear for iPhone.

iPad-only features include "List Peek," seen above, which lets users quickly check tasks on another list with a two-finger pulldown gesture, while tap and hold allows tasks to be dragged from list to list.

As for iOS 7-specific functions, Clear supports dynamic text, which allows users to change type sizes across the OS from a central control panel in Settings. In addition, parallax is included in some areas of the app to give a sense of depth, much like Apple's own parallax wallpapers.

Finally, more themes come built in for greater customization options, while small tweaks have been made to transparencies and typography.

Clear for iOS 7 is available now from the App Store for a launch price of $2.99. Normal pricing will be set at $4.99.

Are we going to get this advertisement for all apps that updated for iOS 7, or just the ones that paid AI?

iPad Air, iPad Mini Retina, (2) iPhone 5S, iPod Touch 5

So does this mean we have to buy it again if we want it for iOS7?

That's a first for any app I've ever had.

It is a good question if AI is paid for these spots. That should be transparent if so. Answer??

I was thinking exactly the same, and also prepare for a long list of individual app articles on the AI main site ...

It's not an advertisement. Details on the update were provided under embargo. We published when the update hit the App Store, as did a number of other sites.

I see nobody has answered the question about paid ads! It is a good question and I hope AI responds. I don't have a problem with "news releases" from companies but most trade magazines make it fairly obvious that that is what you are reading.

With iOS7 and the 64 bit move, I actually want to see announcements of when a product moves to iO7 and especially when it becomes a 64 bit product. However, these sorts of announcements should be disguised as normal AI editorial. As for AI I'd go so far as to suggest that they creat a page that lists all of the apps that one have transitioned to iOS7 and two support 64 bit operation. The information is useful but it needs to be presented ethically.

Thanks for sharing. This is one of my top five apps. It truly clears up my head. My favourite passtime before going to bed.
