iOS App Reviews

  • I use this app for my business

    By gabbylove6543
    I’ve been waiting for a very imperative update. When I go to correct a typo it will for some reason keep the first two letters of the word there and repeat it. That needs to be fixed already! It takes me more time to edit because of that!
  • Best note taking app period

    By PolarBearKev
    I’ve been using Bear since it first came out and it has never ceased to amaze me. The clean and minimal user interface design is awesome. And what’s even better is this company is actively keeping the app up-to-date and bug free as possible. About a month after I started using it, I ditched Evernote in favor of Bear and went with Bear Pro. Worth every penny!
  • 15 Stars!

    By noalarms
    I’m going against Apple’s rules here and giving this app 15 Stars. I may be fined or go to jail for this rule violation, but it’s totally worth it. This app is unbelievable! I gave the pro version a try last year at this time and really liked it. I ended up going back to Apple notes because the hashtag folder thing confused me a bit. But with the addition of the folder icons(genius move BTW), it makes total sense to me now and makes the app look gorgeous. Also, how awesome is that web clipping tool!?!? My only requests for the developers would be some kind of reminders and a web version(super simple, right:-).
  • PC bears?

    By Yaosen1111111
    How can I see my notes on PC running Windows 10?
  • Beware

    By nroac1234
    Impossible to cancel. No costumer service.
  • Changes

    By TheMacDaddy
    Please put change logs in the description. Don’t make us have to follow a link to a website for a simple change log, just so you can track activity. That’s just dirty business. Your customers are worthy of better treatment and better respect.
  • Subscription... to write notes?

    By Xandis
    Save the subscriptions for service providers. Hard pass.
  • Only app I've used so far that's worth the yearly subscription

    By Katamai
    Other devs should take note as this is how you provide the best experience for your users AND make money. Amazing iOS app and an amazing Mac app all for one single sub. I'm looking forward for supporting Bear for years to come. Keep up the amazing work everyone!
  • The feeling Apple apps used to have

    By VinORL
    I’m almost 50 now but I can still remember vividly when I got my first Mac Classic in college. Working on the Mac was easy. It was intuitive. The ‘magic’ was that it took a mundane task (homework, thesis, whatever) and made it not feel like drudgery. This is one of the few apps that I’ve worked with lately that reminds me of that feeling. Well done.
  • Nice App
