    Bear

    A beautiful, flexible writing app for notes and prose

    Bear is a beautiful app that allows you to write anything from short notes to longer prose. There's markdown compatibility, and a markup editor that recognizes code snippets.

      I searched high and low for a replacement to the Mac OS default Notes app, which is incredibly limited in functionality and insufficient for my needs. I had one twist - I needed to find a note taking app for Mac that did not sync or store notes in the cloud. Bear does just that and it happens to be great. I really enjoy the hashtag categorization system and ability to have multiple tags on a note. It's a twist on Evernote style tags, but with a lighter-weight style of notebook organization and management.

      Overall I love Bear. It is beautifully designed. I love the simple interface and the ability to tag notes is amazing. It makes searching for old notes so much easier. This is better than Apple Notes and I love it so much more than Evernote.

    Appears kind of bare-bones at first, but it is that simplicity that keeps me coming back. Can open local files, multiple Dropbox folders, and even files in Working Copy repositories.

    The Simplenote experience is all about speed and efficiency. Open it, write some thoughts, and you’re done. As your collection of notes grows, you can search them instantly and keep them organized with tags and pins. Work with other people on the same note by sharing it and publish notes to the web for other people to see.

      Simplenote is one of those finest note-taking apps you can ask for. Coming from Automattic, the company behind WordPress.com, it enables seamless ability to publish the notes online. Great app, to sum it up!

    • Simplenote truly was the most beautiful app of its day. It completely transformed what productivity was for me. There aren't many apps you expect to still be using ten years later.

    Embed images, tables and text as blocks of content in text

    Live Sync, syntax highlighting, custom templates and content blocks make IA Writer, still, one of the best Markdown apps across Mac/iOS/Android

      I deep dive into writing rituals using this software. Tough to explain beyond it. But they have gotten their UI perfect for a writing mode.
