Can I use Bear Pro without iCloud

I just want to use themes and export to PDF. My phone is an Android anyway and I have iCloud switched off due to privacy concerns.
When I try to sign up to pro it tells me to activate iCloud before going any further.
Any way around this?

    Hi Michael,

    no, I'm afraid right now is not possible to enable Bear Pro without iCloud, but you can turn it off immediately after the purchase.

    I'll second this. I want the additional export features of pro. And, I'm happy to contribute to a great app. However, I can't sync iCloud on my work laptop.
