App Reviews

  • Syncing Issues & Slow Service

    By ane27
    I was so enthusiastic about this app that I switched from Evernote. Unfortunately the app has continuous sync problems and takes up tons of space on my devices. The developers also take more than a week to respond to help and when they do it’s usually just linking you to a support article. Was hoping this got better but it hasn't so I'm searching for an alternative. I switched from Evernote to Bear looking for a cleaner more reliable experience but these syncing issues are treacherous. I can't afford to keep dealing with that as I heavily rely on my notes for business.
  • Great notes app with nested hashtags and links.

    And getting better with each release. One request: can you add a quick folding/unfolding lists (multi-level) - making Bear into an outliner. TIA!
  • Best Note taking app

    By MoniqueTFS
    This App is amazing would recommend. A must download
  • Wouldn't sync to iCloud at all.

    By nichollspete
    I gave the trial a try and after a few days of using the app, I discovered nothing appeared to be syncing to my iCloud account. I checked the support page and it said I needed to send a log to them for troubleshooting. Thing is, I use a much more basic writing app that syncs out of the box, so why would I take the time to help the developer fix their problem when, in a week, I'll be paying for the app. Meanwhile, free apps work fine and do the most important thing I need them to do--sync to my preferred cloud service. Cancelled my subscription and deleted the app from my devices, ultimately, because I just didn't get what all the positive reviews were talking about. A really basic feature didn't work for me and all the other stuff I don't need in a writing app.

  • Amazing App

    By Karthik Keyan B
    I use Bear everyday. I like the clean UI. Love to have a feature to lock my notes using Touch ID.
  • The Best

    By BonbyBou
    Had to stick with this for awhile using the free version before committing to paying for the subscription Pro version. I now realize Bear does exactly everything I wanted it to do, and more. At less than .04 a day this App is an amazing bargain. Clean, fast, flexible it captures links, notes, website information everything else I need. Love it! I was pulled in many different directions, but I'm glad I settled on Bear. And, it comes with a desktop synced version for free. Pretty amazing.
  • A developer’s delight! [Haiku]

    There once was an app. Brings great joy to devs who code. Code snippets and more! 🧐❤️
  • Great app

    By MasPollo
    I’ve been a Pro user since the beginning, and I have just a few recommendations. - I wish that you could choose the app icon. I like some themes, but their associated icons are HORRIBLE! - Is there a listing of the new TagCons? Most of my tags are the standard #. - Why isn’t the new Dieci theme available on Mac? If I want a true black background, I should be able to get one! - Why is the Dieci theme’s highlighting color yellow/orange? The default red would look much nicer. (Or how about a lot more true black themes???) - Finally, more fonts would be greatly appreciated!
