The folks at Realmac Software have teased Clear, an upcoming task manager for the iPhone. It uses the iPhone’s multi-touch in an interesting way, allowing you to “collapse” and “expand” group lists of tasks (to-do, shopping, movies to watch, etc.). Plus it’s just pretty in an “1980’s Nike ad” kind of way.
I’m looking forward to this one. Check out the video above.
Update: The teaser page and video have been taken down.
Update 2: Clear is actually the first app from a new studio, Impending, formed by Phill Ryu and David Lanham. Federico Viticci conducted a great interview with Phil at MacStories, in which they talk about the origin of their new venture and the thought process behind Clear:
“There are probably thousands of todo apps already on the App Store, but 99.9% of them all suck in the exact same way. They don’t get out of the way and just help me get things done, they ask this and they ask that, and if you want tags or if you want to schedule a reminder. They crowd the screen with buttons and switches and little decisions to make. I get how these things can be useful, sometimes, but most of the time all you really need is a pencil and notepad. So we started there.”
It’s a great interview and a compelling app. I can’t wait to get my hands on it.
