I love bear on my Mac, I use it for lists, notes, reminders etc. Unfortunetly, since there is no android app I deleted it from my Mac and im using another subpar app that does sync across all my platforms.

Will there be an android bear app soon?

    Hi Carlos,

    our next big step is realizing a web version of Bear, finished that we'll consider developing an Android or Window version.

    Well, I guess it's better than nothing.

    I don't see any Android or Windows user using a web version though. Too
    many steps to open a web version on a smartphone.

    Just my two cents.

    I'm also interested in an Android version of the app!
    Web version i think that wouldn't be much helpful for people..

    I'd love to try this on Android. I could definitely see using a combination of an Android app and a web or chrome version.

    I'll be eagerly awaiting the web version in any case!

    I know this thread is for android and I already put in my +1, but since Danilo mentioned a web version I'm also +1 for web version and/or chrome plug-in. I don't see the value in a native windows (or even the native mac) version if a web version exists. But cross platform is definitely key for me.

    An Android version makes much more sense than a Web version.

    What makes an app like Bear powerful is that it can provide a beautiful, distraction-free writing experience on each device it supports, and that notes can be synced between the devices a user owns for easy retrieval or quick editing, even when offline.

    If you already have a native Mac app, what's the advantage to a web app? Chrome would at least extend things across platforms a bit more seamlessly.

    Another +1 for Android. You can't ignore such a huge market. I don't think Android users and Windows users should be rolled into one category. Since when did Android become a second thought?

    Things not working cross-platform is such a shame in 2017, especially when it such a good product.

    One more support for putting Bear on Android.

    Really, to be able to use on both i-things and majority phones is very important for a writing app, don't you think?

    I guess the web app idea is going after Windows, but frankly a native version is also better there. Notebooks also are not in any way always connected, and a writing tool in particular needs to work when it''s not.

    Still a chance to see a better way for your effort?

    Looking forward to the web-app, but for this to compete with services like Evernote you will need android support.

    I would prioritize this far above a windows app, as desktop devices can easily access web-apps.

    It's so sad that Android isn't a priority for this amazing app. I would jump on a yearly subscription if Android was supported in a heart beat.

    I would kindly ask for Android. Thank you!

    It's sad...we almost went a full month without another request for Android. Wiht only three developers and a long list of features to implement, trying to develop for another platform is out of the question. (I am not part of the Shiny frog team but I use Bear hourly and there are other development priorities for those of us who were in at the beginning.)

    +1 This needs to be on Android.

    I tried several different apps for weeks on iOS until I settled on Bear as the best, just to find out there's no Android app. Derp.
