Bear is an app used for writing anything from contacts, to-do lists, and note-taking to essays. At first glance, Bear is a distraction-free note-taking app.  Open it up, one tap and you can start writing. With three sections: Notes List, Sidebar, and the Editor it is easy and intuitive from the moment you open it up.

There are lots of note-taking apps and can be hard to decide which one will best suit your needs.  If you live in the Apple Universe you may have considered using Bear.  At just $1.49 a month it is great value for money, but do you really need it?  What does Bear do those other apps don’t?
