Thought I'd have a go at Clear for Mac.
Please see the full shot.

Beautifully designed ^_^
I understand your choice to be faithful to the iOS design, but I think keeping all the gesture-based interaction would be cumbersome on OS X.
@Taylor Dolan I couldn't agree more.
When I found Clear for Mac I felt the most obvious improvement would be displaying the lists in columns, taking full use of the desktop.
Controls would definitely be an improvement; an idea was to reveal the complete "tick" and delete "cross" icons when hovering an item, but I haven't illustrated that here.
Perhaps an opportunity missed.
@Ryan Henricus I totally agree about columns, at least as an option. It could be implemented similarly to Tweetbot for Mac (http://j.mp/VGYNbW). It looks like that could be what you're going for in your design?
Hadn't realized that anything had been officially released about Clear for Mac yet. I just took a look at the Realmac blog and saw it. Apparently it features "nearly all the gesturally-driven interactions from Clear for iPhone as well as a complete set of keyboard shortcuts." Seems like they prioritized maintaining the aesthetic over ease of interaction. Your hovering idea could be a good compromise.
@Taylor Dolan all my assumptions about Clear for Mac came from their promotional video. It's all speculation at this point, but the Tweetbot idea would be great.
You can see that Clear for Mac will open lists in separate windows. Though it's unlikely, perhaps you can dock list windows as columns like Tweetbot for Mac. At least, that was the idea I was going for with this shot.
I'll rebound a hover-state when I make more sense of it.
After a closer look at the video, it looks like maybe clicking and holding slides an item to reveal the check mark, and releasing actually checks off the item. Who knows though. I guess we'll see in a week.
