Google keep is perfect for taking notes not the best for task management

I'm a very big Google fan and love their ecosystem that includes Google keep. I will continue to use Google keep for all my note needs and can't wait to see what else Google can come up with

PROS

Google keep is one of those pieces of software that you cannot live without if you are part of the Google ecosystem. It is integrated with all the other applications they offer and that makes everything so seamless

CONS

It's hard to really give this thing a con because it says right in the name Google notes it's created for taking notes and it does that perfectly. No matter where you take your note if you're connected to your Google account you'll be able to access that from anywhere. It's not the best when it comes to task management or project management but again that's not what the app is designed for

Reason for choosing Google Keep

Due to its seamless integration with the rest of the Google ecosystem

Reasons for switching to Google Keep

Because Microsoft OneNote and Evernote could not integrate properly into the Google ecosystem

Simple and easy note-taking for meetings

I use Google Keep in a very straightforward way: for taking notes during meetings, so I can remember things later. I use it, especially, for more casual meetings, where I am only taking the phone. I write down relevant ideas, dates, or assignments and, later, I open the app from the laptop and distribute the information creating events in my calendar, making a phone call, sending an email, or initiating a new project. The uses I give to the notes I take on Google Keep are very diverse; many times, then, Google Keep becomes the initial step for a task.

PROS

Google Keep is extremely easy to use because its functions are elementary. This is really an asset because I often only need a clean interface and some space to take notes on the go. Therefore, I like the simplicity and the ubiquity. In this sense, it is essential for me that Google Keep is a multiplatform tool, so I can see the notes taken on my phone while working on my computer and, then, redistribute into other apps/programs tasks, information, and reminders accordingly. I also enjoy labels a lot; they help me organize a space (my mind, my meetings) that is very chaotic and diverse by nature.

CONS

As I mentioned, simplicity is one of the best features of Google Keep, so I do not really miss any significant characteristic. Perhaps the app could benefit from some formatting options, such as italics, bold, and underlining, to make a more expressive use of it.

Reasons for switching to Google Keep

I used to have MS Word on my phone. I switched, mainly because my GKeep notes were instantly available online, so it was better to manage them for me.

Google Keep

PROS

I love taking notes daily. Check boxes notes and colour coding my notes were probably what I liked most about Google Keep.

CONS

Recently I have switched to samsung notes as there was an issue with using the phone keyboard in Google Keep. I did some research and found other users having this issue. The autocorrect would not work properly. Prior to that I would use Google Keep notes every day.

Personal review 2

It was a normal experience. I tried a friend’s suggestion and did not find anything special about it

PROS

In fact, it was very ordinary and I no longer use it and did not find any interesting features in it

CONS

It is not smooth to use, I felt heavy when moving inside it, and its design and shape are not very stimulating

Google Keep: Quick, Easy, and Efficient

It is an important daily platform used to keep notes, tasks, running lists, assigning out to-dos and tracking follow ups.

PROS

Google Keep is a quick and easy way to take notes as well as to organize to do lists. The feature to link notes to specific emails or calendar events is also extremely helpful.

CONS

The UI is a little on the simpler side but still provides ease of use.
