To be fair, I said "apps like Bear." I know that Bear is a newcomer but there are a lot of apps out there that use Markdown. If you read reviews for them, you'll find a lot of former Evernote users who gave up on EN as a writing/note-taking tool.
Now that I think of it, I wish Evernote had reserved all the team collaboration and other businessy features for a special Pro subscription. The beauty of Evernote is all of the things it can do, but that's also the problem with Evernote. Feature overload. Sadly, though, it seems they have chosen to do the opposite—focus on team and business features like Spaces. Failure to add Markdown support after years of hemming and hawing sends the message that they don't care about individuals anymore. So does their website, which puts all the emphasis on business features.
I think I just talked myself out of even bothering with EN anymore. Honestly the only feature I can't find elsewhere is the ability to search handwritten text within jpegs. Maybe I can live without that.
