Bear is a multiplatform writing app with a range of intuitive features. Search notes by saved tags, access from separate devices and more with a focus on online writing and note-taking designed to streamline the process of researching and writing.

Online writing made easy

With a clear focus on the online writer, Bear has an impressive design base. Everything is designed to work simply and, in general, achieves this with clever thought. HTML tags are applied with a simple click, links are found automatically and images are displayed natively. The most impressive element of the app is the work done behind the scenes. Constructing an article for online viewing is made a breeze, creating lists and subdivisions in an instant. Bear is available in a free base model and a monthly subscription premium version with a few additional features. Most will be happy with the base version but professional writers may require the multi-device cloud sharing.

Cut above

Despite having stiff competition in the note taking app genre, Bear does an impressive job of its core tasks. Anyone who writes for online publication will be happy with the amount of automatic process while general users will enjoy the simple saving and searching functions.
