    Hi Jostein,

    we have plans for a web version but not for a windows one at the moment.

    Is there any approximate time line for a web version, and maybe a re thought of the PC version.

    +1 for the web version. Use Windows regularly at work so I need either a web or windows version to justify the cost. How little it may be.

    the web version will take a lot of time and work before being ready. We can't tell right now when it will be available.

    Definitely +1 for the web version.

    Like many people, I use Apple devices for everything but my work laptop. Bear lends itself really well for capturing thoughts whenever I am, but the workflow sort of breaks down trying to get the notes onto my windows machine.

    Great app, though! I couldn't be happier with it.

    To be honest I would switch from evernote / apple notes to bear if you would provide windows version. I use mac and iphone as personal devices, but at work I use win workstation. Currently use-case for bear even worse than for icloud notes - those have at least web-version (although for obvious reasons UX is worse than native application)

    Due to my company do not provide Mac as my work station, but I am a Bear pro user. I like this app so much. But I can only use Dynalist web version as my note-taking tool at work, instead of Bear........

    Unfortunately - in today's world, you need to be able to support more than the Mac environment. I have multiple devices (e.g. Surface Pro, iPhone, MacBook and Dell Laptop). Most folks mix business and personal note taking applications.

    I can confirm that our company has removed Bear from the downselect option because its lack of support for PC or a Web Version that can be efficiently used on the web. Many options exist, getting a quality product to market that serves more than a the current niche will be key in determining whether bear survivies

    it would be very helpful if you could provide a rough timeline for the release of a web version of bear notes. this will help me decide whether or not to switch to another notes app which supports both mac and windows. thanks.

    Hi Ab,

    In our plans, the web version will be available by the end of 2017 or the begin of 2018 ( most likely ), but I don't think the release date should help you decide to switch or not to Bear in this very moment. In your situation, I'll wait for the web version to be available ( and testable ) before considering switching.

    Yeah... Can't buy in until there is at least a web app. I operate on too many platforms.

    I really appreciate the quality of the experience that Bear gives me. Thank you for that quality. I don't mind it taking a long time for you to ship a quality product on the web.

    +1 for the web app version.

    I appreciate the simplicity and the overall design. I already bought in as an appreciation for the team's hard work and efforts. I'm also working on multiple platforms on a daily basis. This app helps a lot, but it'll be perfect if there's a web app version available ASAP.

    Very important to have access to notes anywhere, even at work on the standard windows pc.

    Would you port your ipad version to UWP by windows bridge?
    I think it's not so expensive.

    @Yoyo I'm afraid the bridge alone can do very few for us

    I'm really enjoying your app, but so far only on my iPad & iPhone (I subscribed because your app is THAT good). My main computer is on Windows so it really bums me out that I can't have the Bear experience on the platform which I do the most typing on. I'm hoping you guys can put out a web version soon.

    Great job on the app so far. Thanks for all the hard work!

    Discovered your app today and would become a premium customer immediately if you had a Windows 10 version.

    I would love a web or Windows version. It would be so useful for my work computer and I love Bear so much!
