Bear Review

Bear is downright beautiful and one of the prettier writing apps I’ve had the pleasure of using. Like most writing apps, Bear is composed of three parts: the Sidebar (on the left), the Notes List (in the middle), and the Editor (on the right). 

Bear doesn’t provide this notebook system. Instead, you can use a tag system (like Evernote) to manage your notes. But you can easily mimic the notebook format by using sub tag.

The todo is one another nice features of Bear. You can create a task just by highlighting a line, and clicking on T. You can also move the task wherever you want in your notes. While it won’t replace a task manager like Todoist, Wunderlist, Trello, etc., it can be convenient to have this in your notes.

Bear if you are a writer and want a simple, clean, and fast writing app that is super flexible and just works.
