Google Keep Software


 

Google Keep is a cloud-based note-taking and to-do list management solution that 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 the users 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 from time to 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 into a single document.

Like Post-It notes, but better.

N/A

Google Keep is my go to choice for personal use. I employ Evernote for business purposes and in all honesty, they are both very useful. If you are a visual person, Google Keep might be more along your liking. More of a glorified Post-It note keeper, Google Keep makes it easy to find notes due to color coding and other features.

Pros

Google Keep is simple. Keeps notes synced between your desktop and mobile device. It's UI resembles a board filled with Post-It notes where you can customize each note. Modify text, card color, size, and even set reminders to your notes. Use tags for easy tracking. Google Keep lets you access the information anywhere you go. You can configure Google Keep to share your notes and other simple features.

Cons

Not highly sophisticated and limited setting variables for Google Keep. But they do not necessarily seem like a con, as it keeps its features simple.

I can save my antivirus software key, small IOUs for friends, To-Do list, Grocery LIst, I mean there is a hundred reasons why you could use Keep. I like to get my ideas off into it and then I can stop worrying about forgetting.

Honestly, there isn't much to not like about this program, it does take a little while to learn at first.

Easy to use. Different types of notes with color coding. Easy to use mobile app. Right inside your Google account. Easy to share with other people.

No good organizer feature, after a while you have nothing more than a clutter. It doesn' have a PC/Mac app and cannot be integrated with other famous note-taking systems. No special support for Samsung S-Pen and note series.

Pros

I love how it syncs with your Gmail, app is very easy to use on the IPhone (I use it over my notes app), and how you can add collaborators. You can either type in a note or free-hand it by "drawing" it in.

Cons

For me, I love personalizing my notes so this is where Google Keep can do better. I feel they should add options to bold, italicize, or strikethrough.

Overall amazing!

Pros

I have been using Google Keep on my iPhone almost a year. It helps me with everything from keeping track of thoughts for projects and business ideas to simple to do lists. Pinned right by my messaging icon, it is one second to touch it and start writing versus spending time looking for a pen and paper. It is also free.

Cons

There is not an ability to share my Keep which is frustrating because I do that frequently with their other products. I would like to see that ability added to Google Keep.

It is easy to use and allows for collaboration with other G suite users within an organization. It also works well on all devices and has a nice macOS app.

Cons

It would be nice if you could have individual notes and lists right in Google Team Drive. Would make tracking workflows easier. It would also be nice if you could combine notes with and without checkboxes.

Pros

This application is made by Google and very stable. It has done a great job sharing lists and documents between multiple people. You can manage keep from a web browser and Android devices. They also offer a version for iOS in the app store. The reminder feature is extremely useful.

Cons

I really haven't found any issues with it so far. I am not sure how it would scale to more than a handful of users. So it may not work for a bigger team.

Excellent note-taking tool/bookmarking tool with cool labelling/search functions

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support
N/A
Pros

Excellent search capabilities (it is powered by Google, after all) - If I save a note with "flight" or "hotel" and then search in my Keep for "travel", it recognizes that that note (which doesn't say "travel") is related.

Easy labeling capabilities. Click to label something to find all notes under that label. Or, if you know which of your already-existing labels you want to use, just # your label and it will apply it. I.e. #recipes

Easy to use. Archive function is nice. Pin important notes on top for easy access. Color code your notes. Checkbox option, where you check it and it will move to the bottom is great.

Integrates with Google Assistant really well. I.e. "add milk to my grocery list" and it will find my Google Keep "grocery list" and add "milk" to the bottom. Works great!

Cons

I wish there was the capability to apply bolding, italicizing and other forms of emphasizing. Or increase font size. Something to differentiate different sections besides entering lines between. It's nice that it's simple and you don't have to mess around with that, but one easy way to add "headers" or something would be nice.

It's easy, fast, simple and does pretty much what it is intended to do. My favorite thing is that it backs up to your google account, so I didn't lose my notes when my phone went down

Besides being simple and light being it's main purpose, I'd like to be able to make it more personal and customizable

It's just a real simple and nice note keeper. have yet to have any issues with it.

Pros

I like the to do list, and the reminder, especially that you can snooze a reminder, if you don't get to the task. The ability to add voice or photo is nice, though I have not used it. labels for organization.

Cons

Not a big fan of yellow, would like to change the appearance, if possible. Would like to dedicate a tone for the reminder, too. online, the extension gets to read and change data i use in websites, I don't care for that.

Google Keep is simple and integrated across the rest of Google Apps making it a welcome addition to my daily needs. It's clean and has a great UI experience.

Pros

Same easy to use interface whether I'm on my computer or mobile device. Search is powerful and accurate. UI looks great too! Easy to edit and organize my lists, share, and set reminders of important items. Completed notes or list items are archived for easy access and search. Drag and drop to change the order and different types of notes make it a one-stop shop for all my needs. It's Free!

Cons

Tagging is nice but it'd better if there was a pin option. OCR not totally intuitive and there's no ability to record audio. There is no text formatting option

Google Keep - great for quick notes and reminders

Overall really good, I use it pretty much every day for quick notes to myself. It's not as robust as something like Evernote but there's value to the simplicity too I think

Pros

It's easy to use to jot down notes that you won't keep or even for those daily reminders which can include lists, pictures, files

Cons

This isn't as robust as Evernote or a word processor where you can add lists, images, and plain text to a note. Once you choose to create a list, the whole note will be a list (not as flexible). I like that I can do reminders, however I can only set 1 reminder for a note. I have things that I want to remind myself before and after work and I don't want to create 2 separate/duplicate messages to accomplish that

I like that its in the cloud not taking up space on my laptop. I can log in from anywhere and see what notes I have left. The other solution that I will call 'somenote' is not as broadreaching as Keep

I wish that I would be able to mark-up images. This is a better way of adding info when sharing jpg that need to be corrected
