One of my end of the year projects was to consolidate my previous note apps, as I had things all over the place, and was never sure where to find something. Feels really nice to have that behind me!
I’ve migrated everything to Bear, replacing the following 3:
- Evernote (also cancelled Pro subscription)
- Apple Notes
I really got sick of Evernote’s UI bloat and constant nagging for even more upgrades, despite being a paying customer. Bear is clean, excellent for longer notes, and supports Markdown, a big plus. The only EN feature I’ll miss was searching for scanned OCR text in images, but I think I only need this a few times a year, and it just means I’ll need to be more thorough with tags / image notes for finding stuff later.
