I really love your app. It's exactly what I've been looking for. I was wondering if you were going to come out with an Android version? I'd really like to sync all my notes with all my devices.

Thank you!

    Android is not in our plans right now, but we want to build a web version.

    Is hard to tell when the web version will be available, but don't expect it tomorrow :)

    +1 for an Android version

    I believe you are missing a substantial market where the tablet of choice is iPad, but the phone of choice is not iPhone. Have a look at how Evernote does its thing. Browser, +native apps for Android and iOS. Magic!

    I've been using Bear on my macbook for quite some time already, both for journals and to-do lists. I don't own an iphone (and promised myself not to buy one lol) so an android app would be really helpful. Also, I'd love if you guys launch the web version asap. Then I'd subscribe to bear pro for full support.

    +1 for android app.

    +1 to Android as well. I'm actually surprised in this day and age that you guys aren't developing cross-platform. There are some great free tools by Google and other companies to easily export code into a different platform, which then requires beta testing and QA, but most of the work gets done right out of the gate.

    +1 Android. Especially with Pixel release and improvements in recent years, iPhone is no longer the only place to reach the premium and/or creative market. I was apple/iPhone for life and now won't turn back. Hasn't hurt as most premium apps are there too.

    Really hope you're considering an Android version. I love Mac but much prefer to use Android over iOS. I also have no interest in yet another web app. Please put serious consideration towards Android development and I wouldn't hesitate switching from Evernote premium to Bear Pro.

    Would pay for pro to have android. Web app would be okay as long as it's 'progressive'

    Another long time iPhone user who made the switch a couple years back. Really love the app, but I want something I can access across all of my devices.

    Android/Chrome OS/Windows guy here. Your product looks amazing, and might well kill Evernote for me, if it existed on my platforms. I'd love to see a web version. If done well, that could solve the Windows and Chromebook problem. (Note: feature-completeness would be important for my case, which I suspect is not unique to me.) And if a web version includes a good mobile web version, I suspect (though I'm not a dev) that a knowledgeable Android developer could wrap that into a native Android app pretty easily.

    There are a couple important "ifs" in there, but I'm excited to see what you can do with a web version. Do it right, Bear. And steal my business away from Evernote. (Cross-device/platform functionality is required for me, so I'm automatically a pro subscriber if you win me over. :-) )

    Great work folks!
    I work on a Mac, but my phone is android. I'd pay money today for either Web/Android access.

    one the main reasons why I cannot use this app is because of the lack of android support.
