Remember that everything you type in there isn't encrypted and google scans all.
When it's free, you're the product. (usually)

It's by google and has many nifty features and is practical but if you ever change your mind and decide to use a different method of notetaking (for whatever reason) there is really no automated way to export your notes, google basically has all your notes unless you copy your notes by hand (which is tiresome)

the app is great but not good for those concerned with privacy. and migrating your notes is a bitch if you change your mind later.

actually you can download (back up your notes locally) all your notes: the feature is called Take-out. You don't find it in the app itself but through your google account page (just google takeout). you can also take-out other data you have with Google: like your photos, your map places and the like..

I've been using Keep since its inception, and my impression is still the same: meh.

Pros:
Multi-Platform**
Free
Rich Content (images, voice notes, attachments, etc)

Cons:
Code is unstable (lots of defects)
Work-flow/UX is out-dated.

Ironically, decided to dust it off and use it as a repository for iOS apps to check out.
So the use case is:
I'm in the IOS app store, I see an app that interests me, I 'share' it with GoogleKeep.
When I send, I select the applicable 'label' (GTD, Social Media, Photography, etc)

Sounds perfect, eh? The only issue? It doesn't work! At least not for iOS 12.1 on iPhone 6 it doesn't I opened a ticket with Google Keep but no response yet.

great:

  • as a diary (arguably less stylish as a Molescine paper book) that is always with you!
  • in my line of work (medicine) a great resource to build a large cataloge of notes (like specific emergency procedures, drug dosaging, checklists) and quickly look them up when on the scene.. doctors used to have these littel books in their pockets but they were clumsey, you never had them, when you needed them and were far less comprehensive.. a smartphone is so much more sleek.

Has best mobile widget support in its class

about Google Keep · · Helpful Not helpful 3 Helpful Report as spam

As title suggests

GoogleKeep is one of the best apps for android IMO

Its widget is extremely easy to access and add notes

Like Googlephotos, googleKeep also scales really well with images added onto it

Can ping reminders to yourself as well with googlekeep as an android notification

Very handy

I really dislike it - very clumsy interface - hard to see things on the screen

about Google Keep · · Helpful Not helpful 3 Helpful Report as spam

It is one of the new modern interfaces which take tons of space and don't have a birdview option.
Google sheets is a better alternative - you can fit your notes on the sheet and see them all in one place, can reorganize, edit from phone, color etc.
Here each note takes huge space, makes simple things unnecessarily clumsy.

Love it

about Google Keep and Microsoft OneNote, Simplenote, Evernote · · Helpful Not helpful 2 Helpful Report as spam

Simple, easy to use, popular and powerful note-taking resource. Definitely a keeper (no pun intended) for short notes/lists. More flexible than the text-only, sharing-limited Simplenote and less cluttered/bloated than Evernote/Onenote/etc.

It's a decent note taking application for things like shopping lists. I wouldn't advise putting anything too personal in Keep seeming Google can access and read your notes whenever they feel like it.

[ Google Keep ]

This is a must for me on all of my phones, computers, etc. Its a great way to keep up with what ever you need & not have to worry about having to search for important information anymore as its accessible via what ever device you have the app on or just by visiting https://keep.google.com once your signed into your Google Account.

I use it a lot for things like my wifi settings, shopping lists, keeping up with my expenses, and much more. Its a very good resource for pretty much anyone.

I highly recommend this service & its app!

Very good application for keeping track of notes, and saving links and to-do’s across all operating systems mobile, and PC.

It lacks an offline mode however, and it would be great to have a dedicated scanning feature in 2020 like just about all other major note taking apps.

Google Keep is an awesome service and I've been using this for years, it drastically improved my productivity since its layout and interface are wonderful. One itchy missing feature is markdown editing, but the main, HUGE one is that Google Keep isn't private at all. Any note could be visible to Google and used to send targeted ads. I'm looking for an alternative because I wanna drop it as soon as possible. It's very painful, but necessary.
