I'm an ex-Evernote + ex-Wunderlist user now relying quite heavily on Apple Notes (since it's no-frills and free) on both Mac and iPhone. There's been some iCloud syncing issues lately and I want to switch to a better todo / note taking app. Both Bear and Things 3 are getting quite a lot of praises. Since I want to move all my note taking to a single app I want to be sure to invest in the right one. If you've used either one or both please share some thoughts on your experiences so far. Thank you so much!
- I've used both Evernote and Wunderlist and the app I'm using now, NoteLedge, is by far my favorite. I actually enjoy creating to-do lists with it because I use the handwriting feature on my tablet, my lists are synced (to my phone and laptop), and I can add doodles and sketches to make the process more fun. I also add small notes to my Google calendar and this helped me with time-management and how I go about my week. No complaints so farPersonally, I like NoteLedge for creating to-do lists and sticking to them - I'm able to easily glance at and edit it on my phone when I'm on the go, so checking things off takes a second, which is exactly what I've been looking for.
- I moved from Evernote to Google Drive to OneNote back to Evernote to Apple Notes to Bear all within the last 9-ish months. I still use Apple Notes for quick hits, but Bear is my note app of choice for my digital notebook. It's just so simple and elegant. Bear doesn't do everything that Evernote can do, but there's no reason why you can't find a way around any shortcomings in your workflow with another app or method. Markdown in Bear makes it so easy to write and doesn't get in the way of having to stop to format my notes like I would in Evernote. I also love the nested tagging system, which is intuitive and dead simple to use and effectively replaces the need to create different notebooks and tags like in Evernote. It's hard to tell if Bear is the app for you based on your specific needs, but it's worth a shot because their subscription is inexpensive and the first month is free. You can try it for 30 days and cancel before the subscription kicks in.
- It's collapsable and you can literally dump your brain in there and still never get lost. You also have the ability to zoom into any bullet nodes and create new list anywhere. It's truly amazing. There are tons of resources that you can make it even more powerful. It's already powerful just as it is by being simple but they've made it possible to expand it even more to your liking and customization. There's a whole community out there too. Reddit, Twitter, Facebook and so on.
