Clear in the iCloud

iOS, Software

OK, I know… this post Clear in the iCloud is almost one year old today, but still… It’s interesting and insightful, at least for me, to grasp all the aspect of the design and engineering of a (successfull) app: Clear.

Which by the  way in these hours has gone free (as in beer) maintaining the promise declared by Realmac Software in their Making Things Right letter to their customers!

Clear uses a custom system built on top of iCloud File Storage and it works in a similar fashion to Operational Transformation. The post proceeds to cover the reasons for choosing iCloud, then explores iCCD and subsequently builds a synchronisation system from the ground up.
