Info updated on:

Bear is a nicely-designed writing utility created for Mac users. With its help, you can manage your diary entries, work notes, prose material, and many others.
The application is feature-rich yet it comes with a straightforward interface. The main window of the program is divided into 3 screens. The panel from the left side of the interface displays the Notes and Trash groups, a button that takes you to the Preferences window, and the tags categories. The next screen displays a list of the saved notes and a search bar. On the right side of the interface, you will be able to preview or edit notes.

You can export your notes to multiple formats or print them directly from the program's interface. Another great thing is that it supports importing notes from other apps that are similar to Bear.

Unfortunately, you cannot sync your notes, customize the appearance of the interface or export entries to PDF, HTML, DOCX, and JPG formats until you upgrade the application to its Pro version. Still, the acquiring price is very reasonable and definitely worth it if you enjoy working with this program.

In my opinion, Bear proves to be a smart alternative to using Mac's Notes application. It's simple to handle, brings you many useful features.
