Macworld 2012: 'Clear' To Do App for iOS, WDC MyBook Thunderbolt Duo

Macworld | iWorld 2012 kicked off this morning in San Francisco with the opening of the expo show floor. For years, Macworld was the major trade show for Apple to announce their new products. The venue was the launching ground for the first iPhone launch back in 2007.

Since Apple's departure, the show has continued with a focus on 3rd party companies. This year, the show has been rebranded as Macworld | iWorld reflecting the increased importance of iOS in the Apple ecosystem.

Clear

clear iconRealmac Software and Impending used Macworld | iWorld to announce their new to do app for the iPhone. Impending is a new studio formed by Phill Ryu and David Lanham. Ryu is best known for his work on MacHeist, which MacRumors has partnered with in the past.

The app is called Clear and is a minimalist take on the to do / list manager app, focusing on simple gestures to manage all elements of the list:


The app has not yet launched but will be coming in the next couple of weeks. It will be a free download for the basic app with in-app purchases for color themes and the ability to have multiple lists.

WDC MyBook Thunderbolt Duo

At least one new Thunderbolt product has been announced. Western Digital announced that they would be showing off their MyBook Thunderbolt Duo drive system at Macworld. The new drives will presumably be similar to their existing MyBook product line. Pricing and availability has not yet been announced.

We'll have more from Macworld | iWorld over the next few days.

What is this - the 1 billionth ToDo app? Don't we already have this for free in iOS. FAIL!!!

Did these guys have to pay macrumors for the promotion?

So, not another to-do app eye roll, and, yet another thunderbolt product that isn't actually priced or available.

Interesting, thanks. :rolleyes:

Great. Another vaporware Thunderbolt product.

My thoughts exactly.

Great, someone from someone at MacHeist. That means it will come with all kinds of promises of future enhancements, and maybe actually deliver on them in a few years (i.e. all the free updates to the next version, beta previews, etc).

If Clear syncs with iCloud ... I'll use it all the time! Does anyone know if it syncs?
