Two very different Clear versions

When the new Clear is released it will be updating over the current Clear. And anyone with past list info there etc. would unlock this set.

Looks good-- could the text size be adjusted though? That’s huge for the new iPhone displays

What about those with both? I really enjoyed unlocking all the themes and icons on the TestFlight clear but don’t really use the old clear anymore. I downloaded it back in 2012 though and still have it but I use the TestFlight one for everything now.

Finally! Wow the colors look wonderful! The only thing many of us fear is still the gigantic padding. Yes, yes, I know you are working on it, though :blush:

Next beta will reduce size and padding on the “lists” and “root” (god we need a good name for that level) levels of the app. We’ll be doing some more text adjustment passes too in the future. Huge feels less necessary than perhaps one more smaller option.


New beta is out now and includes further adjustments for text scaling/padding at Lists and Clear levels of the app. I think this should help quite a bit.

So much better! The overall display feels like smaller screens were considered as well. Weird to think of a 6.1" screen as small… but yeah, this is a huge improvement.

“A couple years” for sync to return is really disheartening, to be frank, and I think it’ll mean I’ll have to give up using Clear.

I’ve been an off-and-on Clear user since it launched. I’ve been on the mailing list for this new Clear for years as well - have had the Test Flight app installed, including years of “renewing 90 day expiration” builds :slightly_smiling_face:

As your velocity and email updates have picked up, I’ve been trying more and more to push my daily workflows to the new Clear and just can’t do it without the macOS companion. As others have stated in Clear iPad & Mac Taken Off Sale, without the macOS app, the new Clear will just be a toy/fun shopping lists app for me (which I’m greatly saddened by).

I’ve still got the old Clear macOS + iOS apps installed and have been using both more actively than new Clear. Is there some way you can re-publish the old iOS app as a new app? I’m wary that old Clear will die in favor of new Clear with iOS auto-updates and I’ll be forced to abandon Clear entirely without syncing :disappointed: I’d be happy to keep using old Clear until you’re able to build syncing.

I might be alone, but I’d happily pay for Clear (even as subscription) if it meant you could hire on more staff to build syncing and macOS back out. :crossed_fingers: Apple’s hard work like iPhone and iPad apps on Apple silicon Macs - Apple Developer will make this easier for you.

Well, I don’t want to raise any hopes but we are quietly scouting out current syncing solutions lately to evaluate if it’s simpler today than when we last attempted a few years ago. We really want this for the app too, so I do hope it turns out to be something we could handle sooner. (Though certainly not for initial new Clear launch.)

I made my keep-legacy-Clear “pitch” in the Legacy Clear section, then found many more similar posts from other users. I’m a little embarrassed that I didn’t first find an existing post and reply to it, but its heartening to see that many others share these feelings and that the Developers seem to be fully aware of this.

Now lets hope this advice is taken to heart . . . . .
