- I'm in the process of moving my notes from Evernote to Bear. I love how elegant but simple the app is to use. There's markdown support and subscription-based cloud syncing of notes between Mac and iOS. I think it's definitely an app to consider.Yes! I love Bear. The UI is really beautiful and everything auto saves so you don't have to worry. Even just the free version is awesome for taking notes, writing documents and creating lists. There are a lot of quick and easy to learn shortcuts that become second nature and using tags makes it easy to manage your files in app. Couldn't recommend it enough as a helpful, intuitive and sleek writing tool 🐻🐻🐻
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.
- I love Typed for it's complete lack of a UI and minimalistic approach. Accepts full Markdown too
- This is almost the default choice for writers on Mac.
I love Scrivener. I'm less than enthused about the Windows version, but on Mac it's fantastic and windows is getting there.. Wish there were better ways to sync data but Dropbox is decent enough. Better integration with citation software would be nice too.
