Bear is a super-smart notebook.
Private Markdown Notes
Taking down notes can be the best way to organise your thoughts. Make yours additionally eloquent with Bear, an award-winning app for taking notes across your Apple devices.
The magic of Bear is its unfussy interface, which enables you to free-associate. Start typing into the textbox and you’re off – use the toolbar at the bottom of the screen to tweak your notes as you go along.
It’s all here for you to use: bold, italic, underline, highlight, headings, strikethrough; add links or images, create numbered or bullet-pointed lists.
All your text is saved automatically as soon as you start, and you can store multiple documents in your Bear app at any one time. You’ll see them stack up in your homepage the more you use the app.
Organise notes by adding tags and sub-tags and, when you’re ready, you can convert your Bear work into PDFs, Word files and JPGs. You can also sync your Bear content via the Cloud, which means you’ll always be able to work on a project anytime, anywhere.
With Apple Watch, dictate notes to Bear on the go. You can also annotate PDFs and JPGs, encrypt notes with passwords and demand Face or Touch ID to unlock your work – so you can rest assured it’s all secure. Which leaves you more time for thinking.
