Yeah. It is wonderful when apps work together without much friction. I have a custom CRM in Airtable, so I might explore linking from there to Bear (there might also be a solid way to link to a search like you noted w/ Evernote versus direct linking to a specific note.

On Gingko:

Yes! Love Gingko. I tried using it for notes, but I do a lot of notes for coding, and the lack of syntax highlighting and regular highlighting got in the way of my workflow. Also, the cards are too small for code without line wrapping. Still use it for journaling and non-trivial writing output. It is one of the few apps where you can do outlining/writing in one place without much friction. It has been hard to actually write in most mind maps/outliners software I have tried, as paragraphs/snippets as nodes (versus headers/short text as nodes) feel heavy to me.

Now that I have started linking, I could perhaps try using it for high level notes with Bear holding low level details.

Just played with Gingko and Bear linking => quite powerful
