apps I use to get the job done
Notes are handy, but I can't seem to find just one go-to app for them all. Since I use macOS and iOS devices exclusively, it's just easiest to use the default Notes app for most things. Evernote was fine until they started restricting how many installs I could link to my one account. For documentation, blog posts and any other articles I write, Bear is an excellent editor for writing, tagging and organizing my thoughts.
I can write my notes in Markdown and Bear will automatically format as I type. Notes are organized into groups by custom tags and synced to my other iOS devices in the cloud, so I can write anywhere.
