Hi guys,

I remember you (Danilo) once told me you had planned a web version for Bear. Could you give me any update about it ?
I just can't wait ! :-)
The reason is that, at work, we are on PCs, and so Windows softwares. :-(

Please tell me that I wille be able very soon to use Bear when I am at work, far away from my MacBook !...

Best regards

    Can you release a bear API?
    This is a show stopper for me as I'm a crazy person on Mac OS / Android combo. You have some many tech savvy fans I'm sure we could build a webapp / android app around an API in the short term.

    Hi Kyle,

    we can't really publish an API because Bear backend is CloudKit, but we are building a web version which will make Bear more accessible from any device.

    Hi Keith! I guess your question is for Danilo, not Kyle, right ?

    we had some drawback to the web development and we had to move the release date from early 2018 to mid/summer 2018, but the development is still on track.
