I’ve been in a bit of a funk lately trying to figure out my long-term plan with Evernote, or something else. A couple of things that really bug me about Evernote are:
- Lack of markdown support
- The editor is just goofy as hell for layout/formatting
- tagging seems tedious..but perception I guess
So, I was excited to try out Bear when I heard about it. It’s a new application that looks to bring a lot of key features of Evernote, but fixing some things that really bug me in Evernote.
There are a couple of things I’d like to see in Bear that are not currently there.
- There is no tag completion. This leaves it open for me to accidentally mis-type a tag and create a new one
- There is no bulk-tag management. I want to be able to select a group of notes and apply a tag. No luck yet, maybe soon
I am going to play with this for a bit and see how I like it. If you want to check it out, jump over to http://www.bear-writer.com for the details.
