Editors’ Choice

Steinbeck liked pencils, and Orwell had his trusty Remington typewriter. But us? We like Bear. It’s a writing app that’s as capable as the best of them—but doesn’t bury us in technical intricacies and toolbars. Linking notes is as easy as dropping a hashtag, and formatting your work is a total breeze. We especially love this Apple Design Award winner on iPad.

I love Bear, truly

I'd been using the free version for a long time and really loving it, so finally I thought that subscribing for the pro version was due, as sort of a thank you to the Creators :)
One of the best things in Bear is how lightweight and fast it is, there's no waiting time when launching and it never ever lags. It's also clean, free of distractions and just neat. The tag management is super simple and actually helpful.
One thing I would love to see added is neat document scanning so I don't have to use the iOS notes app for that.
And maybe a sharing option for a whole tag? Or just inviting people to a folder/ tag/ see Ted notes so that they can contribute. Again, so I don't have to use the default app ;)
Thanks and much love!

Winner!

This is the best notes app in the wild. I was using all of them... Evernote, OneNote, Notes... this one won my heart all the way! Tho it still has some bugs I believe that will be fixed soon it is the best. Navigation, sync, customization (it would be cool if user could build own themes). I would like to see that in browser or on windows in the future to be able to collaborate with wider audience than only mac users. Still it's a winner of UX, simplicity, features.
