Late last month, Realmac teased an update to Clear for iOS and Mac, which promised to deliver one of the most-requested features: Reminders. That update has finally arrived, complete with a bonus for owners of the former Clear+ app.
Realmac Software announced Tuesday the release of Clear for iOS 1.4 and Clear for Mac 1.1, which now offer the ability to set a date and time to be reminded about items on any to-do list.
Adding a reminder is elegantly simple: Tap or click the "Add Reminder" prompt located underneath any to-do list item, select a date and time and Clear will sync the reminder via iCloud to everywhere the app is installed, and serve it up at the appropriate time.
Realmac has also introduced new Sound Packs to Clear, which are included free with the Mac version, and available as an optional in-app purchase on the iOS app, which iPhone, iPod touch and iPad users can try out before actually buying. In addition to the bundled Clear sound pack, today's update adds Sci-Fi and 8-bit options, the latter of which will certainly bring back memories of a long-lost era for former arcade game junkies.
As a way of thanking users who previously purchased Clear+ for iOS, Realmac is offering the new Sound Pack absolutely free. To claim these in-app purchases, users will first need to reinstall Clear+, open the app and then jump over to Clear for iOS and navigate to the Sounds setting; complete instructions are posted on Realmac's support website.
Clear for iOS 1.4 is now available from the App Store, with the companion Clear for Mac 1.1 also ready to download from the Mac App Store.
