I’m a sucker for lists and GTD software, and RealMac Software’s Clear for iPhone looks pretty sweet. Its stupid-simple way of displaying tasks and manipulating them makes it a good option for people who want to keep track of tasks and get them done in a snap.
The app is elegantly designed and driven entirely by gestures, making it easy to add tasks, remove and rearrange them. That’s always been the benefit of iOS apps and it’s nice to see Clear trying to exploit this as much as possible. The nice, simple colors also make it very intuitive to see tasks in priority order. From the video, it looks like you swipe right to complete a task, and swipe left to dismiss it. A drag motion lets you reorganize tasks, while the app also uses an ingenious “pinch apart” gesture to add a new task, and a pinch inward to collapse menus and lists within tasks.
RealMac Clear should available from the App Store soon.
