This is the best start ever for an apple note taking app.

You have culled the best from notes, evernote, and simplenote for this app. Congratulations. To boot, it is beautiful AND you have come up with a model for sustainability by charging 15 buck a year for the pleasure of using it.

The only thing on my wish list is support for tables.
For me, a note taking app that doesn't allow me to tabulate information in tables will never become my primary note taking app.
Of the options out there, evernote and microsoft one note both allow this. They are inferior to Bear in other ways, but not enough to justify the pain of transition.

Is tables support on the road map - any idea of how far down the road?

Thanks and congrats

    Tables would be an incredible feature. Very difficult to work around if you try to deploy Bear in a legal practice as I do.

    It's ridiculous that so many people defend the developers by stating that table is very hard to implement.
    Yes, of course, programming is never easy. However, you choose to be a programmer and sell your product at a rate of 15 dollars a year and make yourself a good living on your product, but you just can't implement such basic functions such as Table/LaTeX which even some personal developers can implement years ago( MWeb, Marxico are both developed by personal developers as I know). Whether you should think over your team's programming skills or simply you're too lazy to implement anything because after all everyone will pay you 1.5 dollars per month.

    You can't understand how glad I am there are better programmers than me :)
    If tables are not hard for you, congrats, you can write your own multi markdown editor.

    As long as people are complaining, I'd really love an "auto" save feature such that if I even think about a source (web page, pdf, email), or if I'm thinking about something, Bear would automatically read my mind and save the source or my thoughts, even automatically adding relevant tags.

    Do you think you could include this amazingly simple feature in the next update? If not, I'm going to stamp my feet and cancel all ten of my annual subscriptions!!! After all, Google already does this so why can't you???!

    🤮 😬 🤐 🤪 🤪 😇
