With two infant boys, my phone is my only door to the outside world!
So, I needed an app for my writing that isn’t Docs.

Don’t get me wrong—I love my Google Suite apps, but

I got tired of switching between Drive and Docs every time I added a chapter, or switched stories, or added research, etc; not to mention it only really works effectively when online. So, I looked into writing apps and found this article with excellent writing and editing applications like

  • Scrivener (I shared my take in the last email)
  • IA Writer
  • Ulysses
  • Evernote
  • Final Draft
  • and many others

The problem: they cost money.😓

Remember those two infants I mentioned? Yeah, even $5 is key to save until I get back to work. I need something FREE.

In stumbles Bear. A simple app for writers that is free, but can be upgraded to a super cheap subscription for more features. I’m sure you can guess which I’m doing!

And I must say, I’m satisfied with it.

Though I would love to have more like the other apps, this one gets the job done. Simple and easy interface, it allows me to organize on a simple level, see my work files at once, and switch between each with great ease. BINGO! We have ourselves a winner! 

If you’re looking to keep it simple, I recommend it. Hey, everyone needs a starting point.😉
Find it in the App Store.
