MacStories Must Have Apps of 2017

Bear. While Apple Notes is my general purpose note-taking app, I realized a few months ago that I was missing a Markdown app that could hold my thoughts and reference material before turning them into drafts for Ulysses. This is why I came back to Bear: I can start outlining a story by adding links and a few images while I'm still taking notes about a topic. Later, when I'm ready to go from note-taking to actual writing, I can send a Markdown version of a note from Bear to Ulysses, which will keep all formatting and attachments intact. It took me a while to understand that I needed a dedicated note-taking app to complement Apple Notes; I'm happy that Bear and Ulysses get along well. [Review]

Such a beautiful app, I can see why it’s a must have for Viticci. I look for an excuse to use it any chance I get.
