This Gorgeous To Do List App Is So Good It Just Hit #1 In The App Store

clear to do list app

[credit provider=”Ellis Hamburger, Business Insider”]

We all know that making to-do lists is way more fun than actually doing anything.This is especially the case when you use Clear, a new app launching today on the App Store for $0.99 that has already hit #1.

Here’s how it works >

Clear is straight up one of the most beautiful and inspired apps we’ve ever used, and it makes managing tasks super simple.

Clear is the opposite of cult favourite OmniFocus, which has about a million features.

Using Clear is like using a very pretty piece of notepad paper to jot down things you need to do, and that’s exactly what we’ve been looking for.

But maybe most of all, marking items as finished in Clear is just so satisfying.

content=”Clear is a fantastic app, but some of its sound effects are just downright annoying.

We can’t leave our phone’s sound on because the signature ‘Clear’ sound (when you clear out a bunch of items you’ve completed) is just too embarrassing to hear in public. The rest of the sounds effects in the app are brilliant.

Fortunately, our phone’s always on vibrate anyway so we don’t have to choose.”
