Feature request: quick switcher

One feature which I really appreciate in Drafts, NotePlan, Obsidian, and programming-oriented editors is having an always-available “quick switcher” interface.

This is particularly valuable on iOS, where navigating away from a current context to get to the main list, do a search, and select an item, is several extra steps and significantly increases friction.

For comparison, see in particular Drafts on iOS:

Pulling down in any regular editor view (like for a “pull to refresh” gesture) brings up a quick switcher search box, and allows immediately jumping elsewhere in your database of drafts.

I’d love to have similar functionality in Bear.


Hi there,

Many thanks for leaving us a feature request. I’ll pass it onto the development team to see if it’s a feasible option for Bear.
