Bear’s 1.1 Update is like a Nice, Warm Hug

We written about Bear here on Beautiful Pixels, so we’re sure you’re aware of how much we love this versatile, powerful, and scrumptiously designed note-taking app. ShinyFrog, the developers, have just launched version 1.1 of their pride and joy, and it is a delight to behold. Besides the usual bug fixes, the devs have added several new features, including better tag management, a new theme, more fonts, syntax highlighting (particularly useful for programming), expanded export options (including TaskPaper), better import...


Bear — An Exceptionally Elegant Notes App for iOS and Mac

Ulysses 2.0 for Mac

Ulysses III has been my favorite writing app on the Mac for a long time now. Ulysses was released on the the App Store back in 2013 and since then, I have done majority of my writing in it. Over the years, it has truly been an “Incredibly Impressive” single-library, single-window plain-text writing app and it even made the list for “The Highlight: Editor’s Choice of 2013”. Today, The Soulmen have released version 2.0 of Ulysses on the Mac App...
