10 Reasons Why Bear Notes is Better Than Apple Notes

Note taking is one of the hardest and most challenging tasks in the tech world. Not only does it help you keep your professional edge, but it also makes it easier for you to remember new things, stay organized and manage your time.

Notes apps are designed for taking notes and writing down ideas. Some are more powerful than others, but at the end of the day, all they do is allow you to create text files on your computer or mobile device.

Apple Notes and Bear Notes are two note-taking apps available on iOS and MacOS. Both have their pros and cons, but we think Bear Notes is the better app overall

An alternative to Apple Notes called Bear is accessible for iPhone, iPad, and Mac users. Consider the reasons why Bear Notes prevails over Apple Notes.

1. Bear Notes is more aesthetically pleasing

The interface of Bear Notes is clean and sleek, while Apple Notes looks a bit clunky in comparison. Bear Notes also offers various themes to customise your notes’ look, while Apple Notes only has a few options.

The developers at Bear Notes paid close attention to the details and aesthetics when creating the app. You can choose between several different layouts, and you can choose a free or paid version. For the free version, you get the clock and alarm clock note templates, a few default note templates, but you cannot add your own.

2. Multiple Language Support

Bear Notes is available in multiple languages. Bear Notes has a translation feature so that you can find the app in the language that is most comfortable for you. Bear Notes supports French, English, German, Spanish, Japanese, Italian, Brazilian, Turkish and Spanish.

3. Ease of use.

Bear Notes has a lot of features that Apple Notes lacks. Bear Notes is very easy to use and it works like you’ve been using Bear Notes all along. It’s just that the features were all hidden underneath the Apple Notes UI. Now you can see all those features right away. Bear Notes has a lot more to offer.

4. Interlinking Notes

This handy tool allows you to convert Bear into your own personal wiki. Begin by typing double brackets, followed by the note to which you wish to connect. Once you’ve input a few letters, autocomplete will assist you. You may also achieve the same effect by pasting the link to a note inside the text.

5. Themes

Bear Pro users can choose from a selection of 10 themes. For dark mode lovers, this might be worth the price of the upgrade itself, as Bear has some great dark themes. There’s no OLED black theme for iPhone X users, but Dieci comes close.

6. Formatting Bar on iPhone and iPad

As you might imagine, writing Markdown on an on-screen keyboard is not a particularly seamless experience, which is why Bear’s formatting bar comes in so useful. On the top of the keyboard, there is a row of formatting shortcuts that may be scrolled horizontally. Using one tap, you may create a checklist, paste a Markdown link, or even input a tag using an autocomplete option to make your life easier.

7. Easy Exporting

There may come a time when you want to save your notes as text files, such as when you are moving to a new device or are wanting to view your notes on another device. With Bear Notes, you can export notes as text files.

8. Smart Extensions

Bear has its own native extension for iOS devices. The extension allows you to instantly add any text or image to a Bear note without having to open the app. But that’s not all: Bear’s addon is also intelligent when it comes to the stuff you share. Consider the following scenario: you send a webpage from Safari to a Bear note.

Additionally, in addition to being given the choice of whether to prepend or append a note, you will be given the option of include both the title and link to the page in the note. In fact, you may copy and paste the whole contents of the page into a new Bear note. It’s surprisingly effective in this situation.

Even though you’ll miss out on the photos, you’ll still receive the text, complete with all of the links and properly formatted. Bear also provides browser extensions for Safari, Chrome, and Firefox, making it much easier to import data.

9. Supercharged Drag-and-Drop

Bear is iPad ready. Not only does it support Split View and drag-and-drop between apps, it even has its own drag and drops feature. When you drag one or more notes from the list, you’ll see a new Actions bar appear at the bottom of the screen.

Drop the notes in there and you’ll see a list of actions you can do with the notes. These include pinning the notes and moving them to trash and duplicating, merging, sharing, and exporting.

10. Workflow Integration

Workflow, an Apple automation software, now has support for Bear. It now supports six activities, including searching in Bear, opening a Bear note, adding to a Bear note, and retrieving the contents of a Bear note, among others. By combining these activities, you may construct your own processes based on your requirements.

Do you find yourself opening a Bear message several times a day? It should be added as a shortcut to your Home screen. The opposite end of the spectrum allows you to design a process to extract material from a specific Bear note and send it to task management or email app without ever having to visit Bear.
