Realmac Software is on the brink of launching its fun new camera app Analog Camera for iPhone, but it has one more major task to mark off its list before we all get our hands on it. With its latest update to Clear, that item can now be swiped right off the list.
Clear on the iPhone and Mac both were updated today receiving a frequently requested feature: list sharing over email.
Clear, which is a vibrant to-do list app with lots of personality and charm, now allows iPhone and Mac users to export lists via email and import shared lists right into the app by a shake gesture (or action button on the Mac).
List sharing is huge for users who want to create lists for others to use. For example, if your wife wants to throw a grocery list together for you to use at the supermarket, you can now pull this off without having to use the same iCloud account with each app.
Other users will find this useful if iCloud’s often challenged sync frustrates you when you try to share a list on the Mac to Clear on your iPhone. Simply create a list on your Mac and email it to yourself, then check your email on your iPhone and the list will automatically open on Clear for iPhone.
Pasting multiline tasks in a list is also possible now. I’m a huge fan of creating text in Drafts for iOS, which I keep in my dock on my iPad (Clear isn’t optimized for iPad yet but it’s coming soon its simple user interface already looks terrific on the iPad mini), so I look forward to quickly creating multiline lists in Drafts, copying to the clipboard, and pasting to Clear.
Clear for iPhone and Mac is a clever approach to list management and a charming alternative to Apple’s Reminders.
If you are interested in trying list-keeping with Clear, you can pick it up for $1.99 on your iPhone and $6.99 on your Mac. The update is free for existing users on the App Store:
