Clear universal (teaser 001)

Developer Realmac Software recently addressed user confusion surrounding its Clear and Clear+ to-do apps for the iPhone and iPad by announcing that it will be migrating Clear+ users to Clear for free.

Not only are they doing this to ensure that “as many people as possible can move to Clear” because Clear+ is now defunct, but also due to the fact that Apple doesn’t offer a way to migrate users between copies of an app.

Realmac also added native iPad interface to Clear so now both Clear and Clear+ support all form-factor iOS devices. If I were you, I’d download Clear for free right away

The company announced in an open letter to users that “we’re going to do this twice in the next few weeks”. They will be soon launching a free update to Clear with reminders support and “much more in store for you in the coming months”.

Go ahead, download Clear now free of charge.

The offer is valid for the next 24 hours so act now if you’ve been eyeing this gesture-focused to-do app, but were put off by its asking price of $4.99

Clear+ is available in the App Store for $4.99.

Both Clear and Clear+ require iOS 7.0 or later.

If you’re wondering about the difference between Clear+ and Clear, the two are identical in terms of features. However, Clear is supported and Clear+ won’t be, meaning it will no longer receive new updates.

Realmac founder Dan Counsell himself acknowledged user confusion.

“Ever since the launch of Clear+, we’ve heard from customers that they are excited to pick up Clear but uncertain which version to buy,” reads a post on his company’s blog.

    I’m surprised Jeff wasn’t the one to post this deal. Haha

    • Usually, Cody is the go to guy when it comes to deals

      • Vicener

        True that. Though with all the gestures involved with Clear.

  • leart

    Where is the last compatible version for your ios ??

    • Chun-Li aka ThunderThighs

      How about someone upgrade

      • Jason Baroni

        There are certain devices you just can’t upgrade. If they bought the iPad version (now gone) they won’t download this on iOS 6

      • Chun-Li aka ThunderThighs

        He is running a iPhone 4 or a 4S he can upgrade. Clear runs on all iOS 7 devices except devices that don’t support iOS7. I’m running Clear with my iPad. He just needs to upgrade

      • Jason Baroni

        I would keep iOS 6 rather than install iOS 7 on an iPhone 4.

    • Willie

      if im not wrong, clear is designed for ios 7. clear+ has older versions

      • leart

        Yes it has since it come out in early 2013
        The same trouble i had with drop box, and after some month they let me get a compatible with my ios 6.0.1 4s
        Ok I can upgrade but when I decide so 🙂

        “Ok I can upgrade but when I decide so :)”

        Translation: “I’ll update but only once my 4s has crashed and burned and I’m forced to upgrade”

      • Stefan Åhman

        One should not simply upgrade an iPhone 4/s to iOS 7.

      • ✪ aidan harris ✪

        Why not? I know at first iOS 7 had stability issues but these are mostly resolved now…

      • Stefan Åhman

        The new operating system makes the older phones slow and in general, it is pretty ugly (except for a few things). Too flat design in my opinion, and the icons.. my god 🙂

      • leart

        Yeah I am one of those who dont like the ios 7 flatness, I would say emptiness (I am designer by the way :D)

      • leart

        For now I am good here 😉

      • Stefan Åhman

        I’m almost crying.. So.. beautiful :’)

      • leart

        Haha, thats the truth 🙂
        I tested ios 7 in my previous ip4s in honestly I didnt

      • leart

        Haha, thats the truth 🙂
        I tested ios 7 in my previous ip4s in honestly I didnt like it, + on ios 7 my 4s never run this fast and smooth

      • leart

        Today it works 🙂

    • Anthony Gilera

      Just borrow an iPhone from a relative that runs iOS 7 on it. Get it and it will be stored under your account.
      Who knows, they may add the ability to download old versions, and right now they’re probably doing this to lower the risk of cannibalizing their sales by just letting only iOS 7 adopters to take advantage of this.

      • leart

        I will download it from itunes later 😉

  • Lady GAGA

    I was bout-to-buy it , I’ll wait till it’s paid again to buy it , just to support the dev

  • Matt Ashcraft

    Read some of the reviews on Clear+; is it true that they are getting rid of it after letting people spend $5 on an app that eventually would be removed from the App Store?

    • ✪ aidan harris ✪

      Yes!

  • Andy

    Can someone tell me what’s so special about Clear? I’ve tried it and it just seems to be just another to-do list app, similar to other ones I’ve downloaded from the App Store.

  • ✪ aidan harris ✪

    “but also due to the fact that Apple doesn’t offer a way to migrate users between copies of an app.”

    If you make your app universal in the first place this shouldn’t be a problem…

  • Mike Colacone Saal

    A deal on an app and it’s not Cody posting, shocking lol
