Sometimes, I forget to do things. Like... the I Heart Daily post yesterday. Oops! (Sorry, Anne.) Luckily, I've found an app that can help me -- Clear ($5). Usually, the idea of setting up an organizational app gives me a stomachache. It seems so complicated to get to the point where it's simple. But with Clear, it's simple from the start: Swipe down to create new to-dos for your list, swipe sideways once they're completed (very satisfying).
Clear even doles out inspiring quotes when you create a new list, like, "It's very easy to be different, but very difficult to be better." --Jonathan Ive. (I got that one today when I started my grocery list.) In short: This is simple list-making that is as easy as pen-to-paper, but better, because it's on your phone and you'll always have it with you. Also: Pretty colors. It feels good to be on top of things.
