App Reviews

  • Only app I've used so far that's worth the yearly subscription

    By Katamai
    Other devs should take note as this is how you provide the best experience for your users AND make money. Amazing iOS app and an amazing Mac app all for one single sub. I'm looking forward for supporting Bear for years to come. Keep up the amazing work everyone!
  • The feeling Apple apps used to have

    By VinORL
    I’m almost 50 now but I can still remember vividly when I got my first Mac Classic in college. Working on the Mac was easy. It was intuitive. The ‘magic’ was that it took a mundane task (homework, thesis, whatever) and made it not feel like drudgery. This is one of the few apps that I’ve worked with lately that reminds me of that feeling. Well done.
  • Nice App

    By JazzyBear174
    Love that I can easily save/share my notes from other apps to bear, verryy convenient for me, I appreciate a feature like that. Works nice on my Apple watch too.❤️
  • Game Changer!

    By Claudia Mac
    This app is by far so much better than standard notes on my phone. Like anything new, it takes a bit of time learn to navigate, but you’ll learn very quickly!
  • The Best

    By Mobjack11
    After trying many writing apps this is hands down the best. Hard to describe, you just have to try it to find if it works for your needs. It is clean, neat, and makes me want to write. I used to be averse to using my phone as a writing tool, but with Bear all that has changed and I use it all the time.
  • Almost there!

    By bat-daddy
    This app is such a significant upgrade compared to the stuff I have used in the past. It works fast, efficiently, and has a great, minimalistic interface. The only thing it is missing is a password protection and a website form, both of which are in development. Fortunately, this app hasn’t disappointed me yet- so once that’s added, I’d say that the subscription is more than worth it. Probably the best writing app I’ve seen yet, just needs a few improvements before it’s perfect.
  • Nice app

    By Jakymoon
    Very good and detailed app but you should need to buy pro in order to use good features
  • My favorite note taking app that can be better

    By Castaneda545
    My only complaint is one that I think could easily be resolved. The images that you upload to a note, before opening them, appear very low resolution up until you open them, but from just scrolling down the notes, they look very bad it’s just very disappointing but I hope it gets fixed soon enough
  • Privacy

    By Crazymamaof3
    Deleted. No passcode lock. It’s too bad. It’s a beautiful app. I’ve already contacted the developers but they still continue to leave this feature out of any updates.
  • Best Note App

    By Awu4u
    If you’re looking for something more robust than the standard Note application, this is the application you’re looking for! It is constantly being updated and the features are logical and user friendly. There is a subscription “pro” level, which if you need is affordable, but if you don’t need it the application is still usable and essential
