Clean interface, markdown editor, link to other notes, unique hashtag categorization system, one of the few note apps that doesn't need clouCons:
note linking process is a little clunky, can't customize or pin favorites in tag folder order
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.
Clean interface, really fast sync, right amount of featuresCons:
iOS app/extension works wonky when trying to add multiple pictures to a note (order is incorrect, some pictures need minutes to appear)
I love it =)
