You may not need drafts and that’s ok too. I also use Bear and probably would be just as happy starting a note there 95% of the time. I have one specific workflow where I write down my notes after a one on one meeting. I write it in drafts which then kicks off a workflow where it asks me additional questions and then takes information and auto tags it. Drafts is nice to be able to keep some of things consistent so I can think about the meetings and not how I’m going to organize it for admin purposes.
I think it comes down to what you want/need in an app. Drafts can do a lot by itself, and can do even more with other apps. If all you’re using Bear for is a Markdown editor, Drafts can likely replace that for you.
But there are a multitude of things that it can do above and beyond that. The best part of Drafts is that you can not only work with it, but you can customize it to make it work for you.
I look at it as a value proposition: if I can have a single app with a subscription instead of having multiple apps with subscriptions, then I’m still getting what I need to done while saving money. But that proposition has to be worth it to you, or anyone else. It’s not for everyone, but I highly recommend everyone try it. And hey, the free version does a lot. So use it anyway!
@nahumck This was very well said. It’s convinced me to take another shot and try and not ask Drafts to be a better version of Bear, but try and figure out how Drafts functionality will work best for me.
