Scan feature

I love Bear, but lately I've been being challenged by Apple's Notes app where I can scan papers with my phone and they're added to my notes. I think this would be a really great feature for Bear, and help keep it as the Swiss Army Knife of writing apps. Keep up the great work!

    Hi Ryan,

    we have not yet considered an in-app document scanner, but if more people manifest this need, we'll take it into consideration.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Yup, this is something that makes putting documents in to Bear tricky. I have to scan in another app, copy the scan to paste in to Bear. Obviously Bear supports photographing the document so you’re already half way there. It just needs to do some auto-cropping of the document and filtering to give a cleaner copy.

    I'm with this...I was encouraging my coworker to replace Evernote with this and at first he was excited but then he rejected it due to this missing feature that him and his wife use.

    Highly encourage.
