  • Not “beautiful”

    Bear has a lot going for it. But the emphasis on markdown means it is only for programmers. Markdown is esoteric and alienating. Whether it’s “beautiful” is subjective; but markdown prose is the absolute antithesis of “distraction-free”. Example: There is no logic to leaving the “H1” paragraph tag next to emphasized text. That’s called “clutter”. Oh sorry, I want to emphasize what I mean: # */“clutter”/*. If you’re unsure, find a friend who’s not involved in technology. Show them the first image accompanying the Bear App Store listing. The one that says “Write beautifully…”. Ask them if they think all that exposed markdown is a benefit or a distraction. They’re likely to be very confused. And try to explain to them why all that exposed markdown is a a benefit. Yikes! PS: There’s now way to center paragraphs. A writing app that can’t center paragraphs. Wrap your head around that one.
  • Great for note taking on Apple Watch

    I use this all the time to jot quick notes on my watch. Syncs to my phone automatically. I know there are lots of features I haven’t used, but I will explore them. Good work!

    I’m a long time Evernote user, and I’m making the switch to Bear. Exporting from Evernote & importing to Bear is fairly easy if you follow the directions. Evernote has become bloated, buggy, and slow. I love that Bear is fast & reliable. The tag & sub-tag system in Bear is fantastic. As is the Markdown functionality with the toolbar. I was surprised to find that the web clipper works really well. I’ve used it in Crome on my Mac & on iOS using Safari & the share sheet extension. In some cases, it actually works better than Evernote’s web clipper. Lastly, the price is far more reasonable than Evernote.
  • It’s Like They Read My Mind

    1. I love bear 2. It’s like they read my mind and made an app based off of my desires without me even telling them what my desires were. 3. This is my go to app for writing, note taking, to do lists, etc. 4. Get it today and grab the premium version to support the developer and to keep this thing growing and improving. Suggestions for Developers: • Allow us to password protect the app • More themes
  • Very disappointed with new update.

    Alot of the functions that I use have been removed! Especially the print ability. Whats the point in making notes if you cant print them? I have to send it to my email and print through my email app which is just dumb.

  • Please add collapsed tags feature in iOS

    On a Mac, you can group tags with things like #school/lab and they’ll create a tag and sub tag. But this feature is not on iOS. Please add it, it’ll help me a lot.
  • Super annoying

    They do not have a simple search result highlighter to track your keyword location inside your notes. This is just unacceptable. Makes the search function utterly useless when you have long notes.
