Realmac has announced Clear for Mac, the desktop version of its popular Clear for iPhone, which launched last February, and has become one of the best selling to-do list apps in the iOS App Store.
“With Clear for Mac, we wanted to spearhead a new design direction for Mac UI that focuses on simplicity,” Realmac’s Rob Jarman told The Verge. The new app is essentially chrome-less, like its iPhone counterpart, featuring just your to-do’s inside a petite window. Clear for Mac includes all the innovative gestures we’ve become accustomed to in Clear for iPhone, like left swipe for delete, right swipe for complete, pinch to view your to-do lists, swipe up to clear your finished items, and more. The app also includes some Mac-specific features like keyboard shortcuts, a menu bar icon for quick access, and the ability to open multiple to-do lists onscreen.
Clear for Mac will launch on November 8th, and sell for $14.99. The application will sync your to-do lists over iCloud with a new version of Clear for iPhone which will hit the iOS App Store the same day.
Clear for iPhone 1.2 will include iCloud capabilities, but will also add an “edge swipe” feature to switch between lists, and a tool for importing text lists from other apps on your iPhone.
This app could prove to be a must-have for Clear for iPhone users, myself included, who have found Clear to be an invaluable tool for to-do lists on their iPhone. It remains to be seen if the $14.99 price tag will alienate those users.
Clear for iPhone is currently available in the iOS App Store for $1.99. (Direct Link)
