Every app store with a productivity category has oodles of todo list apps.
Some are simple and free. Others are more complex and sync between devices. Still others have hefty price tags and a rigid management system. Which one is best? Here’s one for Mac and iPhone that you’ll like. It’s called Clear.
The claim to fame for Clear is ease of use (after all, the best todo list app is the one you can use), and ability to sync between Mac and iPhone via iCloud.
What sets Clear apart is the similarity to the iPhone version (use the onscreen pointer instead of your fingertip to add or complete tasks) which is remarkably simple to use.
List items can be created with a click, then drag and drop to reorder the priority of each item. Clear is good for personal todo lists, a shopping list, quickly grabbing phone numbers or even a bucket list.
I would go so far as to say Clear is about the most intuitive of the todo list apps I’ve tried through the years. The option to sync up with Clear on the iPhone is praiseworthy because not enough todo apps to that.
Clear needs a few more bells and whistles. Including a bell. An alert. An alarm. A due date. Otherwise, it’s not much more than a colorful, movable Stickies note. The key, though, is that Clear is instantly usable as a todo list manager which makes it more valuable because it will get used quickly.
That’s the problem with a limited feature set. Clear gets boring very quickly, too.
