Description

Bear is a beautiful, flexible writing app for crafting notes, prose, code and now sketches!

KEEP CONTROL
Link notes to each other to build a body of work. Use hashtags to organize for the way you think. And yet, all notes are stored in plain, portable text.

WRITE YOUR WAY
Bear is perfect for everything from quick notes, to code snippets, to in-depth essays. A focus mode helps you concentrate, and advanced Markdown and other markup options are an online writer's best friend. Full in-line image support brings your writing to life, and keep yourself on task by adding todos to individual notes.

EDITING TOOLS AND EXPORTS
- Requires a Bear Pro in-app subscription. Learn more below.

Bear's simple tools take the effort out of writing, whether you need to hit specific word counts and reading times, or you need to convert your writing into PDF and Word docs. With Bear's custom markup shortcuts, you can add style and links with just a tap or keystroke.

USE IT EVERYWHERE
- Requires a Bear Pro in-app subscription. Learn more below.

Bear works on your devices, so you can write wherever inspiration strikes. Use todos to stay on task across every device.

SEARCH ALL THE THINGS
Bear can instantly search all your notes, but it can also focus on specific things with Search Triggers. Use @task to find all your todos, @tagged “ideas” to find your notes that are waiting to blossom, or @files to find all notes with attachments.

Customer Reviews

Beautiful and Simple

An ideal minimalistic writing app for those who fear clutter.

Great update

Sketching is very bare-bones, but works fantastically. Icon changing doesn't work so well, but I see this across all apps trying to include this feature, so think that it is an iOS bug. And adding sketch almost completely removes the need for apple notes for me. Can't wait for tables

Cool! Update but...

Cool update! But still no tables. I hope it comes soon.
