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

Polished Basics

I have tried Writer, Ulysses, Pages and Word. They all have their pros, but Bear makes it all simple. The other apps bog down the actual writing process by making you think about the formatting. Bear makes writing in Markdown user friendly. I can use this for blog posts, writing corporate memos, or just making a list. Also I like that you can add in sketches or pictures without going through a ton of menus. Worth the $15 a year for sync, although it would be nice to have Dropbox integration... but then again more layers and complication come with that. Overall great app!

This is what I've been looking for

I love the pretty, smart, and minimum kind-of-design, simplicity, stability, and features - I like everything of this app. I use it to make notes and jot down and organize ideas. It's on my main screen on my iPhone and iPad and permanently in the dock on my Mac. Thanks for making such a great app!

Great tool

After downloading what seems like a million note making apps I saw some great reviews for Bear. Truthfully it took me a while to unlock its potential and I used it for the most basic reasons but even that is a pleasure. Looking forward to more playing and composing.
