Clear: Tasks and To-Do Lists > Free today only (27/02)

Not a game but a handy app: Clear, Tasks & To-Do Lists is down from 5$ to free TODAY ONLY. I find it pretty useful and done with lots of style.

As the letter to Clear users explains, "We’re going to be returning to just one, universal version of Clear for iOS, with the original version of Clear gaining iPad support. If you already own a copy of Clear, you don’t need to do anything as we’ve just launched an updated version of Clear with iPad support.

As Apple doesn’t offer a way to migrate users between copies of an app, we’re going to make Clear free for 24 hours so owners of Clear+ can move to the correct version free of charge.

To make sure as many people as possible can move to Clear, we’re going to do this twice in the next few weeks. We know this is risky - we rely on the income from Clear to run our small, independent company - and so whilst this was by no means an easy decision for us to make, we simply want to do the right thing for you, our customers.
" (Emphasis mine.)

Oh, I didn't see that, I already have it just thought it would be cool to share it. Can a mod delete this thread?

I don't think you did anything wrong, but some users might appreciate being able to make a more knowledgeable choice knowing the whole story behind this move. They're likely going to find out about it elsewhere, given that there's someone on just about every iOS site that is "advertising" this "deal", though few who are being clear (pun intended) about why it's being done.

I paid for both Clear and Clear+, and use them both to simultaneously access two different lists on my iPhone. What is going to happen to my Clear+?

This one is free so that people who bought clear + before don't get caught out by having to buy the original again.
You'll probably have to combine your lists to one app.
Both will still work but this is the one that will be getting support going forward.
Use the link in dclose's post and it'll explain all the details and reasons.

Heres an article that explains it pretty much as well.
http://appadvice.com/appnn/2014/02/r...-clear-ios-app.

There's also a link in the article to their website that probably gives better details.

Its basically the reason it is free right now, so grab it as you've already bought clear + and migrate to this one.
It's all a bit confusing basically but if you don't have this version, get it now, it is going to be the supported one and the rest will be removed from the App Store, still usable on device, just not supported.

Risky move but definitely very fair of them for their existing users of either app.
Here's their announcement, just in case article link doesn't work.
