Transfer notes with AirDrop
Apple’s AirDrop feature is an easy way to share your Bear notes with friends, coworkers, family, or just between your own devices. It’s easier and faster than using text messaging, thumb drives, or emailing files around.
Use AirDrop with Bear for iOS
On iPhone and iPad, make sure AirDrop is enabled and configured for either “Contacts only” or “Everyone.” Then, transferring a Bear note is easy:
- Tap the share button in the top right corner of the note editor (or: swipe left on a note in the note list, then select
- Wait a second, and nearby iPhones, iPads, and Macs will appear at the top of the share sheet (note: those devices must have AirDrop enabled too)
- Tap your recipient’s device
- Your recipient will see a notification to receive your Bear note. They must tap “Accept” to get it. If they tap “Decline,” the note will not be sent
- One accepted, Bear will automatically open and show the new note
