Any way to use Draft, Bear or any other app other than 1writer to capture notes to obsidian?

Hey guys, I’m new here and looking for ways to create notes on the go using any markdown app like bear or draft. I know the way to do this via 1writer but I prefer utilizing apps I already use.

The idea is to create a note with an app to trigger new note in obsidian.
looking forward for your help.

Any app that can look at synced Markdown files on iOS can be used in tandem with Obsidian on macOS. So, if Bear provides e.g., Dropbox syncing, just point both apps at the same files and you should be good to go.

Drafts is a different story, as it intentionally does not provide file system access for its files—a fact that has long broken my heart. However, it would be trivial to create actions to save Drafts text into the repository you use for your Obsidian notes.

The beauty of 1Writer is that it recognizes almost identical syntax as Obsidian, so you can use both apps in pretty much the same way. I’m not sure if that’s true for Bear or Drafts.

bear is not like 1writer with obsidian. looks like I’ll give 1writer a shot.
Thanks :slight_smile:

I use Drafts with action: save to iCloud Drive + hazel to move to my vault. easy.
