Recently just joined Bear. I stopped using Evernote awhile ago because it was too bloated, and just stuck to Text Edit on Mac for its pure simplicity.
So far I love Bear, but just wanted to echo David's point, that highlight and text color options are a huge miss.
I work as a designer, and I rely heavily on color coding my notes and workflow (especially when handing off notes to my producer and team). This was a pretty basic function in Text Edit, and I feel like it should be it should be considered for future updates.
