Google Keep - A Better Mobile Note Taking App
Google Keep - Notes and Lists are an attempt by Google to bring some of the best of the internet into your personal digital assistant, as it were. This project integrates many of the best elements of a full-featured note taking program, as well as the ability to store information and documents within a mobile application. Basically, it allows you to take all your notes and documents and upload them straight to Google Docs or Sheets. Google Keep is strictly a web-based service; you can not sync your Keep files from another service on your computer. Instead, all your information is stored on the Google server and is available to you or anyone else who has access to your account. Here are a few examples of how you might use Keep:
If you are someone who love to keep track of your various appointments, schedules, and tasks, and someone who also happens to be a great organizer, Google Keep is definitely a useful service for you. You can create, customize, and manage your Keep notes just the way you would with any other third party note taking program, such as Microsoft's Power Point or Notepad. By tapping the "Sync" link located at the top right of the main menu, you are immediately taken to the main screen where you have total control over your notes, tasks, appointments, and everything else that's stored on Keep. However, instead of just tapping "Sync," you are encouraged to actually drag and drop your documents into the main view, which will then synchronize the data on your computer to your mobile device. When you do this, all your notes are exactly like they are in your computer.
Google Keep is definitely the next step in mobile Note taking apps. While it doesn't currently have all the features of other apps, it certainly has everything that most people want out of their next phone/ tablet companion. If you love to keep good notes in a particular area (say your Notes, your Tasks, or your calendar), Google Keep should be a must-have. Google Keep is definitely the android app of the future.
