Clear’s first run is massively anti-climatic. The 7-step how-to slideshow leading into the app with uninspiring photography and typography ruins all the magic and expectation that had built up thanks to raving pre-release press and demo videos. A frustrating counter example of the elegant Flipboard.

However, Clear’s success is deserved and will remain a massive inspiration for all app designers willing to push the boundaries of interaction design to create fresh new products in software categories as crowded as the to-do app segment.
