Motion and accessibility


I’ve been using the clear app for 10 years and have been very happy with it being very dependable.

Is there a way to turn off the excessive motion now in Clear 2? For someone like me with vertigo and nausea, this will make the app unusable if I can’t turn off the movement as I do with the rest of the OS.



Agree. The excessive animation and motion is horrendous.

Was it possible to turn off animations with the old Clear? Long time user too (since 2013), and not really a fan of the new zooming animations. Haptics are great though.

Don’t hold your breath. I’ve commented very constructively about exactly this a few times in the Beta development, - got mauled by other users for not embracing change, and no answer unfortunately from the devs…

Our immediate priority (post bigger launch bugs fixed) is going to be seeing if we can improve it and make it feel snappier. A low motion mode, I mean it’s possible in the future. We don’t like adding many settings, but on the other hand it could fit into the much more personalizable direction of the new Clear.

I appreciate the reply @phillryu. I can see you have your work cut out for you in the short term. Any frustration/anger/unhappiness that folk have for Clear 2 is a sign of the love for Clear 1 - so best of luck! I had disabled auto app updates on my main phone, and I can keep an eye on New Clear 2’s upgrades from another phone until the stretchy-squashy-bouncy transitions disappear! :smile:


Thank you, and yeah, that has been keeping me grounded! I know everyone here shares some of this love for Clear, and we are going to keep doing our best to give it a good future.
