  • Good app, just some suggestions Sep 2, 2020

    By google.user.29283836
    GOOD FEATURES 1. The labels feature and options to change the background color of each note is helpful for organization 2. It’s cool you can add drawings, voice recordings, images, reminders, and checklists. And the feature that grabs text from an image was very useful. 3. Of course the ability to share notes across devices and between people since notes are saved with your Google account and not just downloaded to your device. 4. Small thing but being able to copy stuff to Google Docs was nice 5. Aesthetically pleasing. Not that important but if an app looks old I’ll be less likely to choose it IMPROVEMENT SUGGESTIONS 1. Add bold, italic, underline, and text size 2. Make the option for images to be embedded at any place in the note instead of just attached at the top 3. Allow checkboxes in between paragraphs instead of requiring the whole note to be a checklist 4. Add a view option where only the note titles are shown (instead of the larger icons; like the list view in Google Drive) 5. Allow multiple reminders in one note (not as important as the other ones) 6. Automatically change links into their image previews, while still leaving the option to remove it. Usually I prefer the link icon over the long chunks of text.

  • Very helpful, but could use some improvements Sep 25, 2020

    By selaphim
    I have used Google Keep now for a couple years to keep track of necessary business- related tasks as I am self-employed. I use Keep on both my phone and computer, and they sync very well — it’s so easy to be able to go back and forth. It’s also a helpful place to be able to quickly jot down any thoughts or ideas one has throughout the day. I pin my work related notes so I can see them right away, and if I scroll down I can see the “less important” notes underneath. My partner and I sync our notes for grocery lists which is another huge lifesaver. As for improvements, I’d really appreciate more color options for the Notes. And of course, the one thing that’s now missing thanks to the iOS 14 update is the ability to make widgets! I’ve searched the App Store looking for a simple task/to-do list app and find none that I like as much as Keep, but because there are no widgets (yet?) I feel less inclined to use Keep as I know being able to have a to-do list widget would be so helpful for me and I don’t want to miss out on that. And it would be too annoying to use two different apps — I prefer when things are much more streamlined. Please update Keep ASAP!

  • Best app for organization! Jul 16, 2018

    By Sirenia Garcia
    This app is a great app for organization. Hi, I’m a teenager of the age of 14. In high school you really need to get organized, write down what homework needs to get done reminders on test dates. As of right now though it is summer and I don’t want to be just laying around in bed all summer watching videos or being lazy. I at least want to be a bit productive, so I was on the search for a to do list app that will help me feel accomplished in the goals I set. So I went searching and most organizer apps and to do list apps have a fee, which if your under 16 years old you can’t really do that. I downloaded a bunch of apps looking for the right one. For an estimate on how many I downloaded and deleted was about 8, which is a lot. On this app I can put my to do list, write reminders, and put pictures to remind myself to love myself and remind me that people care about me to. Those inspirational pictures and encouraging pictures I’d say help me from going down into the hole of depression. (I might be overreacting to that but it’s true) so I wanted to thank google for making an app like this! ❤️

    It's a good app. But one thing I beg you to do: one-off reminders can be "checked" from the notification panel. Repeated reminders can't - you have to go into the app and check it as done! Why!!??? Please simplify this so that any reminder can be checked as done from within the notification panel! Saves A TON of effort :)

  • Incredible productivity tool! Dec 28, 2017

    By nbct.wright
    This app has quickly become one of my go to apps throughout each and every day. It’s cross-platform approach makes jotting a note on my phone, revising it on my Chromebook, then converting it to a Google Doc on my desktop a snap. It is lightweight in terms of storage space and processor demands, yet it is robust in its abilities. Saving audio, photos, etc into notes is simple. Setting reminders, even recurring reminders, makes this app outrageously useful for jotting quick reminders when adding something to a calendar is just too time consuming. And again, the cross-platform approach means that the reminder pops up on your iPhone, your Chromebook, and your Windows machine (or Mac) unlike Apple’s native reminder / to do apps. Of course, you have to be using Chrome on your computers as the internet browser. But why wouldn’t you? :-) In all, it’s a very useful app for organizing and staying on top of personal and professional business!

  • Used to love this app May 2, 2018

    By Torqued!!
    I used to love this app. My wife and I kept a shared grocery list as well as others. The grocery list, by far, gets the most use. For the last year and a half, it has become pretty buggy for me. Lists would disappear, updates made by one collaborator would not show up for the others on the list. Now, lately, I can’t seem to add an item to my grocery list without the app crashing. I’ve closed the app on my iPhone, restarted it, shut the app down, hard booted my phone, created a copy of a list and deleted the original to see if one was corrupted, you name it, I’ve tried it. Now, not only does the app crash most of the time, when I do successfully add a line item, instead of keeping it where I added it, Keep tosses the line item down to the bottom of the list. I’m not able to move the item in the list order now as well. I’ve taken great pains to order the grocery list to coincide with the layout of my local grocery store. It’s WAY more efficient that way. Now it’s becoming an aggravation. I’ve got over 300 items in my list. Starting over would be a headache. I’m not really interested in using one of the other shopping apps that force a subscription or demand an account be set up for all members to share. I really liked the way Google Keep used to work. Google! Please fix this app!! For what it’s worth, I’m using an iPhone 6+ with iOS 11.3.whatever the latest is.

    I would love to rate it 4-5, but there's some kind of a problem with this app. Sometimes, it crashes then some of my saved notes suddenly disappears and that happened to me, 3, THREE TIMES already and it really made me wanna rate this app, 3 stars. If you can only fix that problem, I would rate this app, 5 stars. Edit: Actually I'm gonna rate this 2, I'm so mad right now. This happened to me again and I. AM. SO. FURIOUS. If you don't fix it and didn't tell me, I will never use this again.

    A recent change fades out the content at top and bottom of mobile screen (Android 11), rendering it unusable for taking notes that get to the bottom of the screen (just above the keyboard). The lowest line is faded out and very hard to read - as you type it. You have to manually keep scrolling up if you keep typing. I have to switch to another note taking app now. :(

    The app works fine for basic note keeping, my 1 star rating is because they don't have standard features like the ability to change font sizes, spacings, text color, and set words as underline or bold. Honestly all basic features that every other note app offers is missing from this. So if you wanna throw together a quick grocery list that's great, but for a list where things that are red or bold have a higher priority, this fails. 1 star is ridiculous, but so is not having these basic features.

    Developer, Love this tool. However, can you add a "Spell Check" feature? I use this tool for drafting messages, letter writing etc. But, being able to check my spelling before finally copying and pasting the text for sending/submission would be a most useful feature in the Keep App. Your kind attention to the requested enhancement would be very much appreciated. Thank you. PS: Will happily revise my App Rating to five(5) Stars, following the requested improvement.

    Great app however I have one request... For reminders, if it's a crucial reminder I can have it repeat every day at the same time, but there's no option to have it repeat the same day. If there was an option to set it to repeat every x number of minutes or every x number of hours that would be perfect and very helpful in case you miss the first notification.

  • Scrolling and Return Key Bugs Dec 14, 2019

    By JohnAM32
    I absolutely LOVE Google Keep and use it excessively. That said, I’ve been meaning to write a review about the two bugs that constantly annoy me: sometimes the keyboard pops up when scrolling through a note when I did not intend to edit it, just to read it, thus my annoyance when it pops up. I think it does so when I scroll only a small amount and it registers as a tap gesture instead of just a scroll gesture. Two: if I press the return key—creating a new line of text—when there are also other lines of text below where I am currently typing (whether I thereafter type or paste something in or just leave the line blank) after a few seconds the line below that one pops up, merging onto the end of the above line I just entered, and I have to replace my cursor and separate the lines again, putting the lower one back down where it belongs.

    I actually like the App, it let's me take notes to recall later on a spread of other devices that I own. sure you may want different fonts and sizes, but for me I am just fine for what it does. I can share notes with my family and we are all on the same page. it isnt too much that you will get lost or to less like some apps are just plain and boring you can transfer the notes to google docs and it has pages to color code to categorize as well as make your own labels. oh and the reminders!

  • Updated - Late September update seems to have fixed the issues caused by the August changes. Oct 26, 2017

    By shecasx
    [updated] They finally seem to have fixed Keep, thank goodness. For about 6 weeks it was unusable. Now it seems to work fine, no longer deleting items and failing to sync. Glad Google fixed what they had broken, but better communication from the company to its users should have happened. 👎 on treating your users this way. I used it daily. Still use it via the web. But the August iPhone update made it unusable. Can't connect. Screws up your entries. It's a disaster. And Google's been silent through it all. No acknowledgement anywhere -- support pages or forums -- of the problems. The app support pages are worthless. Hey Google, end the silence and let us know that you've heard us! And fix this used-to-be great app and the sync issues, please.

    Loveeee this but please make an option - to BOLD, slant and underline words (the one I want the most) - Change font and colour - Sort notes alphabetically (or in a preferred way) - Categorise notes - Word count/ spelling check (if possible) Also when you draw something make it engraved into the note. So it isn't a separate format on top of the text added kinda like a picture. Instead as you scroll down through the typing/words,the writing comes up engraved with no square around like a border

  • So close to 5 stars! Oct 29, 2019

    By tomas 846
    I stopped using Apple Notes after I started using Keep because Keep is a beautiful note taking app. I love how colorful, simple, and clean the interface of Keep is. The only thing that is missing is the ability to lock notes so others who might access my phone don’t get into it. I write personal things and I store passwords in Keep but there is no privacy mode where I can’t password protect or pin/fingerprint protect these personal notes, while Apple Notes does have this feature. I think more and more people would use Keep instead of other note taking apps like Apple Notes if this feature was present. Please hear me out! Will update my rating to 5 if this useful feature is added. Thank you!

  • need more to be better than iphone note Dec 2, 2017

    By xmanfreeman76
    If you want to check the difference between iphone note and google keep, you will find that iphone note is great, because you can write arabic language from right to left without any issue and great emoji and good quality of emoji that is written in iOS note that defeat google keep, but wait google is good too for more space 15 GB good too. Now the solution: 1- fix the alignment ( arabic and english) 2- create good emoji pictures different than iphone to be for google. 3- fix links issues and google map links too. 4- increase the security of google keep. 5- lets work with iOS company to merge between iphone notes and google keep easily. ( this need high step cooperation) 6- give a chance to share from iphone studio to google keep easily. 7- easy drawing note with iOS Cooperation between note and google keep. 8- more folders and subfolders and easy way to search for sub folders and easy lock for each secure note 9- each google keep note have a date and synchronized with calendar and easy create a link between calendar day and google keep note. 10- anything new will be great idea to help more in business or normal life Like for example record a voice note or transfer voice note from iOS note to google keep note with option of recording voice. My wishes for google 🌹

  • Bold, Italic & underline formatting are missing but it’s a great alternative to Onenote Dec 22, 2017

    By BoredMeteor
    It feels incomprehensible that Google wouldn’t allow users of this great app to format text with bold, italic or underline. This basic feature, part of every word processing program since the late 80s is missing from this app! It’s stupefying. You can do this in every other Google app but not this one. This missing feature is single-handedly keeping this app from really competing with Microsoft OneNote. Google has an opportunity since OneNote for iOS has been badly broken for over a year. It won’t sync notes across platforms anymore! Authentication is completely bugged and your notes won’t sync unless you sign in every day which leads to all kinds of conflicts. The app is unusable these days. Google keep could pick up that market. That’s how I know about it. I had to abandon Microsoft’s platform after they broke it.

    I prefer using everything google from mail to photos because everything syncs up no matter what device you’re on and when I found out there was a notes app I immediately downloaded it,, I really like the concept and how you can have the checkboxes and colors however the labels and archiving don’t sync up very well. I like to have some notes for cooking or workouts and not have them clog up my main screen so I archive them and put them in their labels, but when I click the label and click the notes it brings me to the archive section, but the device still thinks It is in the individual label and I have to click out and click back it to get just the notes in the label to pop back and it’s quite annoying. I would prefer it if the labels acted like folders in drive rather than just labels or have the options for both.

    Not bad, trying to force myself to use it, but definitely things like allowing text to be formatted, allowing mixture of text and check boxes, folder structure (or at least labeling and nesting like in Gmail) must be out there for rating to go above 3 stars. As someone who was switching in the past between iOS and Android platforms, I would really like to see Keep trying to start to compete with Notes iOS app.

  • Used to be a five star app... Aug 10, 2018

    By One of millions...
    Google Keep used to be my favorite app for making lists. I loved that if I switched devices, it would update across them seamlessly. However, the last two updates broke the app. It started freezing while checking things off the list with the update prior to the most recent one. Now, with the newest update, the app will not refresh and update across my devices, no matter how much I try to get it to work. It started with freezing and crashing upon opening, and now it tells me I need to “refresh”, but when I do it sits on a white screen saying it’s “Refreshing...” and then comes back to say the “refresh failed” and to try again later. It’s become more of a pain to use than it’s worth, so I just deleted it and will use the native list app on my iPhone for now. Hopefully when I check back in a couple months these problems are fixed, and I can start using this app again.

  • Lag, non-responsive, failures to sync Oct 1, 2017

    By oberon526
    I am hugely reliant on this app. Unfortunately, since iOS 11, and especially with this most recent app update, the app has become very unstable. Syncing across my devices is sketchy at best, and information disappears. I’ve had to recreate whole sections of notes which sync my updates; rather, the app took the updated note and synced it backwards to the previous version on another device. Response to touch / type /cursor movement is slow at best, but usually impossible. You can’t move the cursor anywhere. To move in a note, you actually have to exit the note, re-enter it, carefully place the cursor at what you need to edit (nowhere else!), then exit again, and re-enter it at the next place to edit. Any attempt to move the cursor or tap elsewhere in the note has absolutely no response. I hope this is rapidly addressed, as otherwise Keep is a lifeline app for me.

  • Even buggier-unusable Mar 29, 2019

    By NHGadgetLuvr
    I love Keep, but this app is very buggy. I open a note that says Grocery, but a list of errands opens instead. Sometimes as many as 3 or 4 copies of the same note are generated. Other times the notes shuffle unexpectedly. Would be great if it functioned like the Web version. Update: Downgraded to one star. I am the only person using the app it is not shared. Yet duplicate notes are created, they shuffle back and forth, the wrong notes open when i tap on it. I love this app and it is so usable and functional, but these problems are driving me away. As much as i want to use it, I’ve even down presentations to others about it, the problems have to be fixed. 3/29: downgraded to 1 star. Duplicated notes and duplicated entries on notes. Web version is fine, but the app is unusable with duplicated entries on checklists, wrong note opening when you tap on (tap on Shopping, laundry list note opens).
