Google Keep is one of those utilities that gets little attention or fanfare, but that we find incredibly useful.
It’s an online post-it pad, that has unlimited capacity and comes as a website (google.com/keep) as well as a Chrome App and Android App – all sync the same account and are part of your Google Apps for Business account.
What we like:
- It’s fast and easy
- Available on our Android phone, tablet and online
- We can type, write, speak or add images to any note.
- Use of Googles voice-to-text makes spoken note taking very efficient
- Search and archive is fantastic (what else would you expect from Google?)
What’s missing – tags and categories would be really useful, although the ability to colour code notes is helpful. iOS users don’t have a native app, so for you Apple Fans, that definitely is a shortcoming.
All in all, Google Keep is a vital tool in our digital arsenal.
