Bear is a writing app for Mac and iOS designed, first and foremost, to be beautiful and pleasant to use. It’s ideal for taking notes, drafting blog posts or constructing essays and stories.
Bear isn’t just pretty to look at, though. It’s every bit as smart and sophisticated as its strongest competitors, boasting a long list of useful features. Its feature richness is especially impressive when you consider that it’s not officially released yet. At the time of writing, Bear is in closed beta, however you can submit your email address on the homepage to request access.
Once the app is released, there will be “premium features” and a cloud sync service that require an in-app payment. The developers have confirmed that the “core version” will remain free for both Mac and iOS.
