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

    When would the timeframe be for the web 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
