HOW TO: Access Settings, Change Themes And Add Notification Badges To Clear iOS App

So, unless you have been living with your head under a rock, there is a good chance you have heard of a new “listing” app called “Clear“. Currently a featured app, and topping the popularity charts world wide, it’s making a splash in a big way.

The ‘Themes’ sections is a great addition to the app, although I prefer the default theme. Clear offers 5 themes ( including the default one ), but if you have TweetBot installed, you will unlock a new theme.

Socialite is unlocked by completing 100 tasks, and telling you twitter followers about Clear by way of the handy bubble that appears. I’m sure there are more, but we have not found them yet.

The ‘Tips & Tricks’ section offers quick tips on how to use Clear app more effectively.

And finally, the ‘Settings’ sections let’s you enable/disable badges, sounds effects and vibration…

Clear is available for $0.99 in the app store. You can also try this HTML5 version of Clear
