Simple lists, the aim of Clear, just released by Realmac Software, is what many of us strive for everyday - namely, keeping confusion and stress at bay by defining clear cut goals. Organizing and simplifying your daily tasks has just gotten a lot more interactive with Clear and its sleek, minimal interface, which mimics iPhone gestures. List-keeping is made simple and accommodates any set of daily tasks you choose to fill it up with.
Along with creating a personal to-do list, you can throw onto the app a shopping list, quick notes for phone numbers, movies to watch, some books to read, and party guest lists, among other miscellaneous things you may have going on in your existence. Phew, list making is kind of exhilarating. Clear comes equipped with heatmap innovation that allows you to stratify tasks according to priority - top goals in the red zone and those you’re not so fixated on down in the yellow zone.
For those of us who have heard of the “getting things done” method, which rests on the idea of successfully being able to perform tasks by moving them out of the mind and recording them externally, the usefulness of such a simple app is not too difficult to fathom.
Clear is simply for the sole purpose of list making and cannot schedule reminders, time-specific appointments, or create complex layers of lists and tasks like, for example, Apple Reminders can, butjust having a simple organization tool like this around can make the largest differences. There is currently an introductory sale price of just 99-cents, and thus far the app has received 4.5 stars on the App Store and is already, remarkably, holding the top spot.
If you're afflicted with that uncomfortable feeling of being unproductive and confused about what to do first, try this app out for size.
