I like Bear 2 sincerely. The update is awesome that I can’t find any alternative competitors.
However, I have a concern about if this beta version can be the master note app (for now). The lack of sync makes it inconvenient to be used everywhere. I have two Macs (one for work and one for personal use) and I can’t sync notes between them. Hence, may I ask whether there is a timetable for the sync function to be updated (approximately is also fine)? Will it be updated simultaneously with iOS beta?
No, unfortunately. iOS has its own peculiarities and differences from macOS. For example, long operations can run for a limited time before being killed by the OS and we require to test migration against this limitation.
Just checking - I blindly installed Bear 2 on a second mac thinking it would sync before checking on the forum. I’m OK with running on a single mac, but I just want to make sure I don’t mess up any data that might get synced up between two machines. Should I be OK?
Everything looks OK on my original install. I’ll close and remove it from the 2nd location.
B2 will replace B1 on the App Store (no separate apps), with a few exceptions because old OS releases will not be able to download B2 but they will be able to keep using B1. When B2 will go into production B1’s database will be migrated but not merged with B2 beta database.
+6.02*10^23 for a private iOS alpha with the migration/sync function. I said alpha deliberately. For some of us, we’re willing to try a high risk alpha, possibly with the understanding that the beta would wipe out the alpha database and replace it. I realize developers don’t like to release alpha code, since a lot of people don’t understand that it WILL contain possible showstopper bugs. For some of us, though, seeing it in action before next year is worth paying that price.
