  • no interest in monthly subscriptions

    By Jentropy
    it’s an okay free app and i might pay a few bucks to own it but a subscription service to use my own content? nah. not interested in that biz model.
  • I love bear

    By Mynamessloth
    I go through writing apps like crazy, and have never found one that I like as much as bear! It’s so great and easy to use! I don’t think I’ll be able to use another writing app, this one is just too good😍
  • Bear Review

    By MrProdusa
    Great little app with good Apple Watch support. 2 gripes: Not a fan of the subscription pricing model at all. Would much rather pay outright. Don’t like that ALL of the dark themes are locked behind the paywall. It would be nice to be able to buy a dark theme like Dieci to use on my iPhone X without having to pay for a monthly subscription. Would gladly pay $.99.
  • Amazing App!

    By ZJHoffman
    I’m a huge writer, and I’ve been using the Apple notes app for years, but it’s garbage compared to Bear! Bear is awesome! Everything is so clean and amazingly designed, and it’s so simple. It’s so easy to write great-looking articles and stories on this app. If you’re a writer looking for a new way to write stories, this app is definitely for you! Download this now!!!

  • A Note Takers Dream App!

    By Kaye1976
    I love everything about this app.. it’s simple to use, beautiful, and covers anything a note taker like me could think of. Go PRO, you won’t regret it.
  • Love this app

    By JustMoore
    I want you to know that I use this app often and love how the team works at improving it time and time again. I use it to take notes and also to write down the sermons. If you are frustrated with other apps and want to edit text and have it not look like crap or want it organized go with bear instead. Enjoy!
  • Slow as molasses

    By Theorogelio
    This app on my phone is slow as molasses. It’s got very useful features but so slow! I’ll change the battery on my phone (6S Plus, 128 GB) and see if there’s any improvement.
