Tech: Bear Notes is bearilliant!
The new note taking standard for iOS and Mac
I have always had the early adopter bug and continuously try new and emerging technology tools. When it comes to notes I’ve always struggled with the functionality of the native OS X Notes app and Evernote was good but has limitations in the free version plus it’s quite pricey as a paid app.
Then things changed in a BIG way.
After public feedback Evernote didn’t go ahead with the change but it was too late as I had found my replacement. That very same day Apple released it’s Best App of 2016 called Bear Notes — A new take on note taking which sported a great UI, all the features you could ever want, and a great pro pricing model.
Bear Notes is uniquely different using a design first methodology that is simple yet elegant providing users with a distraction-free environment. It’s great for writers and coders alike and can cater to both needs with little effort.
One feature I most enjoy is the way they have used hashtags to organise your notes which gives you greater flexibility than having to choose a single folder.
Definitely worth a look.
What I would love to see in future updates:
- Archive feature
- Improved Conflict Resolution
- Touch ID / Password Support at account and/or note level
