Top 6 Reasons You Might Actually Want to Use Google Keep.

More than two years after releasing the Google Keep note-taking app for Android and the Web, the search giant finally released an iOS version in late September.






 

1) Google Keep is simple and streamlined



Google Keep's interface, not unlike the Google search engine box, is bare bones. That means you can start taking notes right away, with little (if any) learning curve. 

2) Consistent quality search
Evernote's search works better in its desktop app than in its mobile apps. By comparison, Google Keep's search experience is consistent, and works well, across all devices.
However, when it highlights searched keywords in images and text. Google Keep quickly finds the files with the words you seek, but it doesn't highlight the keyword, unless you use the Web version.

3) Transcribe Text from Images


Keep has the ability to transcribe text from photographs. Just upload an image and then click the three dots in the menu below. This will prompt a pop-up menu. Select "Grab image text" and it will do its best to transcribe the words it finds (or thinks it finds) into searchable, editable text.
This little trick comes into handy if you want to easily access information on a business card, come across a sign that interests you, or want to revisit just about any print you've come across in your travels. 

4) Set Reminders 


Google Keep Reminder





                                                                                                           
You can create a pop-up reminder in Keep, and it will show up elsewhere in your Google ecosystem (in your browser where Keep is open, in Google Now, or on your phone). Just click the icon resembling a finger with a string on it at the bottom of any post. Once you click that, you will prompt a pop-up menu that will allow you to set a reminder that can go off at a certain date/time or when you reach a certain location. You will then get notification in your browser or on your phone.

5) Easily Copy to Google Docs


Since it's part of the greater Google ecosystem, it would make sense that you could easily transfer a note in Keep into Google Docs. Just click the three dots at the bottom of a note and choose "Copy to Google Doc." Then boom, it's magically transformed into a Google Doc, which you'll find conveniently in Google Drive.

6) Share and Collaborate With Others
Click the icon with the little plus sign next to a person and then you will share your note with someone else's Keep. Then any changes one person makes will be reflected among all the people it is shared with. The original owner will have the ability to delete other users at any time. Maybe if I can actually convince others to use Keep, I'll actually be able to use this function one day.
