App for taking notes on iOS
Notes from Apple
Notes on iPhone and iPad is the pre-installed app on your Apple device.
Notes have improved dramatically in iOS 11. This is especially true if you have an iPad Pro with Pencil. The range of drawing inputs is extraordinary. But even without the drawing features, Notes is a note-taking application. The app is responsive and includes enough styling options. You can create lists, create auditable task lists, and share notes with other contacts. Notes sync seamlessly on iCloud with any Apple device, even if it's not always instant. Notes may not be a first-class note-taking app, but it's perfectly adequate for infrequent note-taking.
Bear is a beautiful and flexible app for writing notes, prose, code and now you can even insert your own drawings!
KEEP IN CONTROL
Link your notes together to better structure your work. Use hashtags to organize them according to the flow of your thoughts. All your notes will be stored in a very portable text format.
WRITE YOUR WAY
Bear is perfect for writing everything from quick notes to portions of code to more in-depth essays. Focus mode will help you focus and soon Markdown and its many options will soon become the essential complement to your writing. In-text image support will bring new life to your writing. You can also keep yourself operational by adding todo to your notes.
TOOLS FOR WRITING AND EXPORT
Some exports require Bear Pro subscription via in-app purchases.
Let Bear help you write the best way. If you need to reach a certain number of words, a certain reading time or you need to convert your documents into PDF or Word files, Bear has the practical and fast solution for you. Adding styles or links is just a tap away or a combination of keys.
