Google Keep Software


 

Google Keep is a note-taking and to-do list management solution. The solution can be accessed via a mobile app for Android & iOS devices, a Chrome extension or through a web version.

It allows users to categorize notes by various topics and then search them by keyword. Labels or color codes can be added to the notes in order to organize and quickly retrieve them.

Google Keep helps in sharing ideas with friends, family and colleagues since it allows collaboration in real time. Users can also record a voice memo and Google Keep will transcribe it so that it can be searched at any point in time. It also allows users to set reminders for notes at a particular time or when they reach a particular place.

Notes captured via Google Keep can be converted to a Google Doc, which means that users can expand notes to full-fledged documents. Multiple notes can be consolidated and imported to a single document.

Pros

Overall the design of this software is fantastic, it looks great! It also makes it very easy as you're able to take nots on the go as well as create lists like shopping lists and then have it automatically appear at a location that you designate for example the grocery store.

Cons

Google is a great company that creates amazing products. I haven't experienced any negatives in using this product to date.

Although there are other great notes taking apps out there, on my Android phone this is still one of the best ones for me.

Pros

The main pro is that it is free. It works well with other Google apps and the reminders are also well integrated. And love the fact that I can attach pictures to my notes/reminders which other apps I used didn't have.

Cons

It doesn't have a desktop application which would have made it even easier to use. The overall layout of the application also could use some help.

Another great app by Google.

Pros

Very nice and simple interface. It is a very easy program to figure out. It interacts with Google calendar as well.

Cons

Would rather have a list of the titles of my notes and go into the one that I want instead of heaving the full list when I open the app.

Available only inside Google Drive and on Android devices.

Pros

Adds a light-weight note-taking tool to Google Drive. Syncs to Android devices. Sometimes very useful.

Cons

No image editing tools. No font options. No tags, notebooks, or other sorting tools. Color codes added to notes aren't visible until after editing stage. No sharing or collaboration features.

I use it every day and can not help it

Pros

The product is very easy to use, intuitive. It is very useful to check boxes and to share the note with other users

Cons

Maybe it would be useful to see subdivisions of titles and the ability to receive alerts when a shared note is changed.

My feeling is that is recommended for small to do list and lack complexity of Evernote and Wunderlist!

Pros

For google-ers is the organization part of home! Anyone who used Google Apps for any reason (Google Drive, Gmail and so on) will find himself/herself so familiar using Google Keep.
Integrated into Google ecosystem.
Synchronization on many devices (even Apples').
Same permission philosophy like Google Drive!
Google infrastructure!

Cons

The real estate of your screen can be a problem! Very soon you will be exhaust your screen and you will be force to scroll down! The left side is also limited in space (after 10 or more tags is crowded!).

Pros

Maps tend to be very accurate (most of the time). The navigation feature is excellent. Searching works well. You can add custom markers and set Home and Work locations. Very useful when finding client locations.

Cons

Sometimes the directions may not be 100% due to things like construction. I've also noticed that on very long trips the navigation (talking) sometimes gets a bit ahead or behind the actual map.

I spent about 10 years running our own in house windows SBS with exchange, thinking it was the only way to get the email and employee management needs my company had met. That was until I gave Google Apps / G Suite a once over, and I have never looked back. I absolutely love this service,does everything I need besides one little thing, there is now easy active directory replacement offered yet, but I have hopes that will be fixed soon!

Pros

Super easy to use, as long as my employees know how to use gmail they know how to use all the options of G Suite! The learning curve is next to nothing since almost everyone has used gmail a LOT in their life. Google has so many great features built in and the admin apps make my life so much easier. Instead of needing to remote into my old SBS to make changes now I just open a super simple app on my smartphone and boom, everything I need is done!

Cons

I really hope Google will come out with a built in replacement for MS active directory, and unfortunately, I am not a big fan of Google Drive. Make Google drive function like a standard windows file directory and make a replacement for active directories without needing to use any 3rd party apps and every wish I could have with this service would be met

Advice to Others

This is by far the easiest to use best email service for your company and employees. My staff LOVES it and loves how they can access their work email by going to gmail.com like they do anyways for personal email accounts.

Obviously the price point it great! As in it is free. Also love the fact you can do so much.. it is not just for storing and sharing files - you can create documents, presentations and more. In theory this is the perfect collaborative tool.

Cons

The cons come with actually using. While it does so much, and there are online tutorials available, I have found that a significant number of people who I try and collaborate with find it confusing, especially at first. You definitely have to use this for a while before you understand the benefits.

Been using it with most of my clients for everything from e-mail to spreadsheets, through websites, shared storage...
Apart from a few bugs here and there in advanced features, it works like a breeze and makes handling e-mail and folder sharing a non-issue in small to medium-sized companies.

Pros

Integration with thousands of other apps

Cons

Offline access is still buggy
Document transfer limitations make it a pain to work with multiple different organizations (a consultant needs to have an account in each of the domains to be able to create documents that have to be eventually owned by the companies).

Advice to Others

Nowadays, you CAN definitely get rid of MS Office.

Makes it super simple to use any of my documents wherever I may be and share documets with other members of my team.

Pros

The plugin for my Macbook works perfectly. Allows me to open documents off Drive and edit them and save back to Drive as if they were on my hard drive.

Cons

Sometimes I have issues with the plugin apps for opening certain documents not always being available which requires me to download the document, edit it and then upload it again. This is quite rare though.
