Google Keep is a note taking app which allows you to take notes either by typing, writing, voice recording or using photos. It is primarily designed for the user who likes to use Google Chrome and all the apps that are associated with Google. It is easy to use the app for taking notes and can be used across all your android devices and shared.
The notes can be rearranged in a logical way so that user can rearrange the notes that will be most beneficial to them especially for students. The interface makes it convenient to see all your notes, to-do lists and lists that you might need and they can all be arranged in colour codes if that is what is preferred.
Even though the app seems simple when you first have a look at the interface it has some powerful features such as "grab text from image" and reminders that can be location based or time-based depending on your preference. Google keep is totally free and web based but it does not have all the features that some of the note taking apps have such as OneNote or Evernote.
One of the cons is that you cannot make subfolders and it is only compatible with Android devices.
Google's new feature with location or timed based reminders is a great innovation. With location based reminders you put the address into the note and it will remind you when you get close to the location. After that reminder, it will ask if you would like to be reminded again when you get to the same location. This is particularly useful if you need to be reminded to stop somewhere such as the chemist. Once you are driving and getting close to the chemist it will quickly remind you.
Time-based reminders can be specifically set for a certain time but if you would like to add a quick reminder for next week it has three options whereby you can assign a note to today, tomorrow or next week.
As a simple note tool for taking notes on the go and with no need for subfolders Google Keep is perfect. It allows the four options that make it easier to quickly jot down a note, leave a voice note which is particularly useful if you quickly want to keep an idea, without having time to type.
The app is perfect for families with all its powerful features and the ability to share information teaching the children how to become organised by keeping task lists, reminders of certain things to do and taking notes.
