A Better Way To Do a To Do App

I know what you’re thinking, there are a thousand To Do Apps in the App Store, what do I need another one for. You’re right, there are a thousand (maybe more) out there already, but this one is different. The beautiful way that the developer has taken advantage of the touch screen to create a different type of user interface. Gone are the text lines with boxes carried over from the PC world. In their place lies a slick, intuitive user interface that really makes sense, especially on the iPhone. Instead of showing you screen captures, you really need to see this App in action. Check out this short video made by Clear to see how it works and why you need it!

What I Would Like to See

When trying to “pear down” an App it’s sometimes hard to know what things to keep and what things to get rid of. Especially in an entirely new UI experience like Clear. Now that you’ve seen the video, I’m sure you noticed that there are a few things missing… The first thing that hit me was a lace of notification. There is no way to set a notification to go off at a set time with Clear. Along with that is no ability to create a repeating to do item. For me this is kind of important. I set recurring alarms in my other to do App and really feel that this is a feature that should be included in the next update. Also missing is an iPad native version, however this is the first release so I’m sure it’s coming soon.

The Bottom Line

The bottom line is Clear has set the standard for not only to do Apps, but for Apps in general when it comes to the UI. The interface is super simple yet works really well. I actually enjoy it and have been using it since the day it came out.
