Note sharing / collaboration

One feature that I really need before committing to Bear is the ability to work on notes with team members / clients. It doesn't look like this is baked in, that or I can't see it. The app is so beautiful and will definitely be my Evernote replacement if note collaboration is there.

    Hi Simon,

    yes, we definitively want to add a collaboration feature to Bear, mostly because we needed too!

    To be honest we thought more people will ask for collaboration. Right now after 3 months since the first beta we receive less than 10 request for such feature.

    A collaboration feature will be available after the 1.0 release.

    I’m really surprised by that as well… Is it high up the backlog list in terms of priority? Just this is really going to be the make or break on Bear for me as my Evernote sub runs out in a month or two and won’t subscribing again and support a business that’s so roofless in it’s business model. After years of being a subscriber as well.

    as I wrote somewhere else, we have an ordered list of features we want for 1.0 and an unordered one for post 1.0. The top features post 1.0 are:

    • Web version
    • Online sharing
    • Password protection
    • Special searches in sidebar
    • More folding options
    • Collaboration
    • Android
    • Doodling / Sketching
    • Audio memo
    • new iOS keyboard

    ... and I'm forgetting something.

    +1 for collaboration although I posted the same request in another thread 

    Really happy to see the "roadmap" / product backlog post version 1.0 and like all new features. I'm happy to wait for these features to be developed because I know it takes time and as long as there is forward movement then I'm ecstatic.

    Danilo: might I suggest making some of your posts sticky?

    IT does make sense to add the web version and then collaboration (for people on your team without Apple products). Collaboration would be really, really nice and easily my biggest request.

    another +1 for collaboration. Just today this came up with a co-worker of mine that w wish we could collaborate with bear as we are both bear users and prefer not to use google docs. Ultimately we did end on google docs, but we wanted to share with bear.

    +1 for collaboration with version control! Real-time would be nice, but in a pinch version control could control for save-file race conditions.

    Ideally a Bear Pro account holder could "host" documents that any invited person could edit without Pro, as that would mean guests/clients/contractors could also use the ecosystem.
