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

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

Customer Reviews

I needed Bear in my life!

Bear is the app that I have been searching for to organize my life. The interface is beautiful. Markdown support makes me very happy. Sync is very fast. (Still waiting for the web app though!!) The price is fantastic and absolutely worth it. $15 for a year is such a good deal for continued development and support.

The thing that really stands out for me is the tagging system. Sometimes a note belongs in multiple categories. Single file systems are restrictive. Bear's tagging system works well, and it displays your tags like a folder structure. This makes it easy to find things and also helps you avoid "tag soup." Tags can be renamed or deleted easily, with the change propagating to all notes that use that tag.

So far, so good!

Came across the app in an article I was reading. I decided to give it a try since it was free and I ended up going with the Pro version the next day. I have it on my MacBook and iPhone; the syncing features are great! If you are constantly taking notes or journaling, I highly recommend this app. It's well designed and thought out. Plus, it's only $15 for a year subscription.

A feature I would love to see is a way to password protect/lock your notes. The original Notes app has this feature and it's nice to have the ability to password protect things with sensitive or personal info.

Thank you for creating such a great app!

Bear is the solution for me!

I work with 40 or more employees and document performance and conduct monthly for annual progress reviews. This is the simplest easiest format to use and recall at a click of a button all synced in one place. Because of the automatic sorting with hashtags I can sort and find the information I need compiled at a click of a button anytime anywhere. This is the solution that works with little effort in my part but big rewards later when it is time to evaluate an employee with a record of tangible pieces of documentation.

I haven't gone pro yet because this is all I need and it is well worth the minimal app fee for the basic app!
