Google Keep is an innovative note-taking application that can be used across multiple platforms. A note can be auto-saved across a user’s Google account on a PC, Mac, or iOS device.
- Multiple Note Types: The user has the ability to not only just take notes.
- There is also the capability of talk-to-text, notes written by hand, uploading of pictures and the creation of checklists.
- Free Cloud Storage System: Compared to other similar products there is no upsell and it is completely free.
- The user can store notes in the cloud without ever coming close to running out of space.
- Mobile Synchronization: The notes and files are instantly saved across devices and sync very quickly no matter what platform is being used to write the specific note.
- Instant Save Feature: The instant save feature is important as some note taking programs do not autosave. If you are capturing a picture or idea, then it is important that this is saved with little hassle. Notes can also be taken offline and are then uploaded when reconnected to the internet.
- Multiple Platform Usage: The user can sync data across devices and this makes it very useful. The data and notes can also be shared with other users (minus social media) to collaborate on a specific topic.
- User-friendly Dashboard: The overall appearance and ease by which notes can be taken is pretty straightforward. The notes appear as little snippets of information and the most recently revised text is instantly moved to the top.
- Folder Function: There is no folder function associated with Google Keep. All noted are simply stored on the dashboard resembling post notes. A similar program, Evernote, allows for a highly structured file folder organizing system.
- Social Media Sharing: Notes or other associated media cannot be directly linked or sent to a social media profile. A similar software, Casual, allows for the note to be uploaded directly to multiple social media platforms.
- Searchability: A similar software, One Note, allows the user to search for specific words within a text or for the title of a note in general. Google Keep has no such functionality.
Google Keep maintains a strong presence in the technological field of note-taking systems. The ability to instantly sync notes across platforms while having the customer support and backing of Google make this cloud-based software very desirable.
