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.

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.

Pros

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

Cons

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

Pros

Integration with other Google products is great. The drag and drop feature is nice. Its fairly customizable. The interface is simple and clean

Cons

This is more of a con for Google's decision. Your shopping list from Google home should go into Keep but now goes into Google shopping which makes no sense.

Keep you thought on an easy, organized interface. Easy to share a note or list with others and functions just like google docs.

Would like more control of the fonts and sizes that the notes show up in the screen. If the note is short it shows up huge on your screen.

Google Keep - great for quick notes and reminders

Value for Money

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

Cons

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

N/A
Pros

I'm an avid Google products lover and Keep is no exception. Keep is the perfect note-taking app for Android and Google product users. I love making lists for groceries and misc. tasks, but often found myself misplacing those pieces of paper. After trying a few different note-taking apps, Keep was the only one that I found myself wanting to use. It integrates perfectly into my lifestyle and is easy to use and access via desktop and mobile.

Cons

Having the app for a while now, I wish there were more features within the notepad for customization. You can change the color of the note, share with your contacts, add photos and checkboxes, but I feel like there's still some functionality missing.

I like being able to color-code.

Pros

Google excels at creating easy, user-friendly, convenient software, and this is no exception. I love being able to access it from either my phone or computer. It's an excellent way to create lists, take notes, keep important numbers or names, or ensure your ideas don't get lost in the shuffle of daily life.

Cons

The functionality isn't huge. There are definitely better collaboration options if you're looking to share with other people or add files and documents. While you can add photos, it works better for basic text.

Google keep has a simple to use interface. You can use it to keep track of notes, web links, photos, and other things that you want to remember. It syncs with all your google devices, which is helpful.

I like that this software allows you to keep track of multiple to do lists at once. I also like the ability to color code.

I wish there was a way to put multiple lists into one group/category aside from the color codes. That would make it easier for me to organize them.

A Great Way to Keep Track of Quick Notes and To-Dos

Value for Money

Pros

Google Keep is perfect for when something comes up that you need to remember later. You can take a note, label it, change the color on it, add a picture, and even add a checklist. I use it to jot down notes when I have ideas to add somewhere else later on and also to make a grocery list. It's very versatile, plus it syncs with Google Calendar.

Cons

There isn't a very convenient way to organize different cards in Keep, so it can't be used for much more than basic notes and reminders.

It's nice to be able to keep track of different things for different occasions from different places. I always have Google Keep pinned so I can save videos, art, websites, Wikipedia articles, screenshots and otherwise.

Pros

Take any bit of information you want to save, be it a website, image, video, text snippet, code, doodle or otherwise, and Google Keep will store it safely. Use tags to organize the type of notes you keep, use colors to give them distinction, and add things like lists and text hierarchy to keep even more organized. It syncs between devices and allows collaboration, has an archive you can store old notes in, and also allows for reminders to be set. I think it might even work with Google Assistant for quick notes.

Cons

There's no option to secure notes in case you need to share sensitive information, or hide information from nearby eyes. Typing a pound sign (#) automatically starts a label even if you're just trying to number things. Interface feels smooth, yet clunky in areas, and can take some time to load.
