Clunky, not as good as Android
by nkyjoe on 2021/11/23 20:47
Something about this feels off, and it probably has to do with how slowly the iOS keyboard comes and goes on and off screen. Things scroll so much more slowly when the keyboard toggles. I feel much more productive with the Android version.
Best app hands down
by KLHarman on 2021/11/19 09:11
This has been and still is my most used app on my phone for years now - both on android and iPhone. I use Google Keep for daily lists and needed information and is great for ADHD productivity. I do wish there was a little more ability create within a new block such as typography and being able to bold words, underline etc.
Good, but lacking widget
by Jimmy t kirk on 2021/11/19 04:49
Please make a widget for this app. Thanks.
App Font Size is Fixed
by ahm009 on 2021/11/18 07:33
The font is small and there is no option to zoom in from the settings. Even when i try to change from iPhone settings (Setting - Accessibility - Per-App Setting) the program font is fixed and does not change.
Impossible to share and save Reddit NSFW links
by Matt GD on 2021/11/17 15:28
When I try to share Reddit NSFW links to Google Keep via the Reddit app, the share sheet opens and then immediately closes or doesn’t open at all, preventing me from saving the links in Google Keep
Cannot read tiny fonts

DIDNT SAVE MY NOTES
by (^_^)Nattie~<3 on 2021/11/09 11:09
And to think I used google specifically instead of another app or site for the same reason. I know things happen, but my thoughts were “ google is such a reputable company, I know nothing would happen to my notes if use their app” Now you can imagine my surprise. Won’t be continuing so this can happen to me again, whole comp sci chapter, and 3 hours of taking them just gone and wasted. Thanks
One huge shortcoming
by Graymer58 on 2021/11/08 18:59
Love this app, as I use an android phone, but please, please, please let us bold or highlight text! Something, anything (other than using all caps) to make selected text stand out. It’s rather incredible to me this feature doesn’t exist.
Improve QA on iPad version
by hackteck on 2021/11/08 09:44
I recommend the developers get an iPad in order to do some additional QA because at this time screen rendering is buggy, with buttons flying across the screen when using a keyboard &amp; trackpad.
Too Much Lag Recently
by Alirazais on 2021/11/04 23:21
Even though I am an iOS user, this has been my go-to app for shared grocery lists etc. Lately however, the app has been very slow and has considerable lag. Checked off items don’t go away and the app appears to be unresponsive. Suddenly it would catch up and mess up your whole list. Same thing for newly added items, if one user adds something it is not visible to other users right away like it used to be. Fix it please before I am forced to switch!
love this app!!!
by Jaggedylav on 2021/11/01 05:54
This app has kept my life in order for the past 4 years. It’s so much more organized and simple than other apps. It’s saved my life!!

Trash
by Todd729 on 2021/10/24 23:24
Buggy. Idiosyncratic. Drawings don’t scroll without inexplicably zooming. Free movement of canvas/drawing area is limited. Not enough white space provided to do math problems without bumping against an immovable border. Document spontaneously closes when merely drawing a line from left to right with the stylus. Document reopens NOT at the level of the last edit but all the way at the very top, forcing endless scrolling just to get back to your work, at which point you draw a left-right line and it closes again. Typical poorly implemented, inconsiderate Google garbage. Time-wasting. Effort-wasting. Makes no sense. Designed by half-awake, out-of-touch engineers looking for a paycheck. Bad UI. Bad UX. Maybe good for you if you need a gimmicky one-trick pony with an absurdly narrow range of functionality.
I don’t know where I’d be without it!
by MekaMeeksxo on 2021/10/24 22:19
I’ve been using this app for YEARSSSSSSS!! I use it mainly now to organize my post for social media but I’ve used it for literally everything when I feel like my life is out of control! I’ve also tried just about every other organizing app. This is the best and its FREE! Thankyou Google!
Lags quite a lot on iOS/iPad. Doesn’t on windows/chrome
by ArielE46 on 2021/10/23 01:46
Sometimes it makes you wait 3 seconds to respond. This is an iPad Pro 2017. Ticking off an item should be instant
One suggested feature

Lag 😡
by churschikbcgewcbhb on 2021/10/06 11:34
Way too much lag. I tap the screen to add to a note and it takes about 5 seconds for the cursor to appear. Overall just slow to operate.

Love this app but right now there is a bug that crashes the app when trying to unindent a line item with a checkbox. I’ve also had it crash and lose data recently. Had great internet connectivity at the time.

It randomly deleted everything.
by Lily4259 on 2021/09/25 17:14
I’ve used it for over a year now with some ongoing lists like health notes, Christmas gift ideas, gardening schedules, and such because it was so easy to use. When I opened the app today it was all gone. Not in trash or archives. Gone. I guess I learned my lesson about using it for more than a shopping list. Don’t put anything down you wouldn’t mind disappearing the next day!
What happened
by Cec61 on 2021/09/24 22:09
I have been very happy with Google Keep until about a week ago. Very, very, very slow. Not happy
强烈希望添加以下功能
by 镜与锚 on 2021/09/24 12:36
作为一个用了n年的深度用户,强烈希望增加以下功能: - 支持asciidoc或markdown语法编辑(这个是最希望的!!尤其asciidoc简直神器!) - 文字种能插入多张图片,而不是图片和文本完全分离 - 支持建立文件夹。因为现在光靠标签,已经很难保持分清晰类了。标签一多,查找起来同样麻烦 - 支持能保存到 苹果的 icloud 云盘
Please add a widget!
by FRSBrian on 2021/09/20 21:01
I’ve been using keep since my android days back in 2013. I really want a widget like I had on android to quickly access notes from my home screen now that IOS supports widgets. Other then that great app!
Widget???
by It's Pete on 2021/09/20 17:41
I love the app but I would love to see a widget added is there a plan to add one?
needs improvements
by magicV on 2021/09/17 20:05
Font is way too small. No option to change Location based reminders are great but once you visit the location for some reason it clears out. I want to be able to continually add to that list attached to a location - example a grocery list The User Interface needs a modern update
Unreliable
by dabuddhabubba on 2021/09/16 23:38
The app does not sync updates made on other devices. I use it the desktop version regularly and it is frustrating that I cannot rely on it while away from my desk.
Repeat
by anonymous262637838 on 2021/09/16 21:45
Can you add an option to have repeat the reminder on weekdays/weekends
Suggestion
by iranigoal on 2021/09/16 21:40
Hello, I like this application, but I wish it had a font size changer as well as a highlight tool. Please do something about it.
Flexible and easy; lots of suggestions
by habits are a blessing on 2021/09/12 13:10
Love this. I use Keep, Sheets, and Calendar together as my digital Bullet Journal, and I swear Keep has made me more organized and self aware! Does it’s job and has lots packed in it that others take for granted (pinned notes/post its, GCal integration, reminders, etc) However there’s lots of room for improvement. I feel like Keep is in this productivity app limbo where it doesn’t know if it wants to be a post it note application or a note taking application. It doesnt capture long term notes but it doesn’t seem to feel like a true “post-it”/corkboard application either, and the integration with Google Docs in both web and mobile is lacking. I would appreciate it Google Keep expanded into more of a Trello/ Post-It hybrid and allowed for 1) Allow for Folder/Notebook categorization 2.) Adding font / RTE formatting 3) Ability to organize post it’s like a kanban board or grid board or any which way instead of the limited gallery view 4)Seamless integration with Google docs and Google Calendar (where searching for notes and accessing Keep notes within the Docs and Calendar app are easy )
AMAZING- but….
by goatbully on 2021/09/10 03:04
It’s amazing so far if I’m being genuine but something that will make most of us iOS users to pleasure is making a widget and being able to customize the widget. I’m asking a huge favor for all of us, so if you can please connect this app with widgets.
I take my neg review back
by Barry in San Diego on 2021/09/08 03:02

IOS IPhone font size
by GB_Chs on 2021/09/04 09:30
Using this app for note taking for years on an Android phone, I switched to the IPhone. Font is way too small and no adjustment can be made. So unfortunately this is another Google product on an IPhone I am deleting and will have to find a substitute. You would think Google could make their apps work better on an IPhone.

Very Good but Lacks Functional Daily Reminders (a should be major feature)
by jordanphim on 2021/08/25 14:02
There are many useful features on the app, but one key feature is extremely lacking in its most vital use: Daily Reminders are not well made. Making a reminder with a checklist that repeats daily will not have the items uncheck the next time. It completely defeats the point of allowing the list to repeat. It leaves you in a position to have to use Keep and Tasks, which is extremely annoying. The only good feature in Tasks is just that, Daily Reminders. That app is very underdeveloped. There is no reason the two apps cannot be one.
Great app!
by Heatherandlennart on 2021/08/22 20:01
I love this app however I really wish there was a widget function. Many other apps have adapted to the new iOS widgets but this one still hasn’t. :(
Great app but wish they have more options
by Fhaicnwoxnso on 2021/08/18 19:17
I wish they have more colors and fonts, themes options!
Needs more
by AWiZZLE5 on 2021/08/17 20:38
I’m a google guy. I use google apps for everything. Unfortunately, I cannot use keep. It is simple, which google is known for, but to a deep degree. I would like to see some more features, bullets, lists, bolding, etc. it’s just hard to use for more elaborate note taking.
Did they forget about iOS
by GreatBlakes on 2021/08/14 21:24
When I open this app on iOS it takes an eternity to sync. The pulldown does literally nothing for at least 10 seconds. Then when I do open a note the keyboard struggles to open. Never had these problems on Android. Is Google doing this on purpose? This uses to be my favorite notes app!
Font is too small
by Thursday _89 on 2021/08/11 00:07
Please allow text size to adjust with the system font. All my apps do so except for this one
Love it
by Mr. brahim on 2021/08/10 12:25
Would you please allow us more colors to choose from.
The best simple(advanced) note app
by Langgoose on 2021/08/09 18:16
Don’t let the title of this review mislead you. This app has advanced features. I say simple because if you are not interested in advanced features, it is easy to use the app in it’s basic form. If the basics is all you want then do not stress, the basics is all you will see and use. How can I explain this… There is no learning curve to this app. You just use it, and it is awesome. I was a pixel user for sometime. I enjoyed the Google software. I ended up leaving android because I appreciate Apple‘s concern for my privacy. I could not leave Google Keep behind. This app is perfection.
We enjoy this app.. but please add
by Kindness goes a long way. on 2021/08/06 01:28
My family and I love sharing lists between each other using this app. The only thing that would make it better is if when we look up a word it would take you directly to that word. I do not mean the heading but it would be more user friendly to go to the word within the document to get to it quicker.
Problems with my lists
by Brittany l f on 2021/08/04 16:20
Hi, I’ve used this app successfully for several years but all of a sudden my lists aren’t acting right and when I try to rearrange items it keeps closing the app instead. Google support please help, I couldn’t find my issue in any of the troubleshooting guides you have.
Needs improvement
by ajjsjdudhhsjj on 2021/08/02 04:46
The app is nice and all but I can’t save any files except images. This needs to change, please make it available for everyone to save other types of files and documents.
J'adore
by Bram's Tantus on 2021/07/30 03:50
Mon avis et ce que je voudrais de la part de l&#39;équipe c&#39;est de permettre aux gens d&#39;ajouter leurs propres images en backgrounds pas seulement ceux que propose L&#39;équipe.
To Do Lists
by Jdksncj on 2021/07/28 23:10
This app has saved my life. Id be a miserable mess without ToDo lists and Im super great full this app makes making and editing them so easy. A few critiques tho. I wish there was a way to put hide-able notes on each task just for further detail or instructions. And i wish i could break them down further into sub-sub bullets. And i wish there was a more efficient use of space on the screen so that you could have more words in a line. This would prevent having to make bullet lists like this.
Too limited
by user12345678910 on 2021/07/27 19:06
This could be such a great app. I really like google workspace but it seems that keep is neglected. Some recommendations, add sub labels and add images anywhere on the page not just at the top. Please don’t leave this as a gateway app to google docs.
Date of Notification
by toomanyweaponz on 2021/07/25 15:17
Pretty much once every 2 weeks I stop getting notifications from daily reminders because Keep somehow changes to the next year (2022) so I have to change each one back to the current year (2021) then trey start working again
Widget (iOS 14 style) Support
by ABC Bob 12 on 2021/07/22 22:13
App would get a 5 star rating from me if they added the ability to put widgets on whatever screen I choose (not just in the designated widget space to left of Notification Center). Would be helpful to see specific notes on the screen without having to go into the actual app.
Great app for Keep Sake
by realup4ya on 2021/07/16 19:07
I been using this app for YEARS! I love it, simple. They just updated the backgrounds and I love it. Would highly recommend :)
Type is too small and can’t be adjusted
by zLeigh3 on 2021/07/12 20:21
I would use this app ALL the time but on the iPhone the type is unusually small and hard to see and can’t be adjusted at all. A killer flaw and what a bummer.
Incredibly finicky but I guess it works
by STRichard46 on 2021/07/10 23:39
I recently made the switch to an iPhone and was expecting to have better performance/quality on iOS but it a lot worse. Getting a constant notification saying that it can’t connect, doesn’t let me scroll if I tap a certain note, and the swiping to go back doesn’t work like every single other app. I made a few notes and updated others and it was synced so it does work technically. I just expected much more from google. Guess I’ll have to get used to the stock notes app
Widgets?
by Noctis L. Sawyer on 2021/07/08 21:41
When will the keep widgets be updated?
Bug found?
by breecuningham on 2021/07/07 16:47
Only flaw I found is that when I try to move a check-box from the right (tabbed position) back to the left side by swiping it to the left with my finger the app automatically closes. Every time. So if I accidently move a check-box to the right then I can&#39;t get it back to original place on the left.
Refreshing
by Mel5666 on 2021/07/03 01:14
I absolutely loved this app but lately all it does is refresh old and deleted notes. I don&#39;t use it anymore.
In deed of a Widget!
by Maiku14585 on 2021/07/02 13:47
Google Kepps is excelent for all types of notes! Its basic yeah but usefull. It just needs a good widget for the ios platform please🙌

Copy-paste

The copy-paste is buggy.
Decent so far, but only a B+ rating
by Geo_Potato on 2021/06/27 05:09
This is my first time using Keep for iOS, and I&#39;m impressed thus far. However, I have 3 moderate gripes to share: 1) I wish the app would retain the label selection when reopening the app. For example, if I have my &#34;Things to Do&#34; label filtered and then close the app, I would like for the &#34;Things to Do&#34; label filter to still be enabled when I relaunch the app. It wipes the label filter every time and displays all notes again without a filter. This gets annoying to reselect each time. 2) A nice enhancement would be to auto-invite collaborators to any notes within a specific label. Currently, I have to invite my partner to every note one-by-one. This gets somewhat tiresome after 30+ new note invites, which also spammed her email inbox with 30+ notifications. That workflow could be improved. 3) If inviting a collaborator to a note, have the assigned label(s) carry over to the collaborator&#39;s Keep. For example, I assigned my partner to several &#34;Gift Idea&#34; labeled notes, but she had to go in and manually create/assign the same label within her account so that we maintained the same label. These labels should sync across, in my opinion.
It’s good but too slow
by mrarn21 on 2021/06/26 14:41
Its a good app but after some weeks of begin to be so slow looks like after you make a lot of note it wouldnt have any cash storage on the phone and after running evrytime needs to risive data from server
Laggy an unresponsive at times
by Odagirijoy on 2021/06/21 01:46
I’m a loyal user of this app on desktop and Android. But the performance of this app on iOS is not on par with the other platforms. The app often stops responding upon opening, and can’t perform basic tasks like opening a link. Please fix this.
Great app in need for a update
by Ahmed Awsaf on 2021/06/21 00:23
Really enjoy this app, used this app from a very young age and this app is really important to be. But the developers can you please make the app feel bit more personal by adding better privacy features. Like, when we log into our gmails its automatically there right specially on desktop. Yeah your desktop is your personal computer but still other people in the house can still access it for important purposes and for printing stuffs( if you got only one in the household) just give an update on google chrome where we can hide/lock the tabs using passcode. And give us the ability to lock certain notes which we don’t want to share if someone have the hold of our personal devices. Thank you.
It was ok until it deleted my note
by Snacksalot on 2021/06/12 05:27
For more then a year I had a note on notes app then moved it to this. It’s deleted now and I can’t access a prior version or undo the glitch. In an existing note if you accidentally select all then go out of a note it will delete the note without an option to undo. It was a sad lesson to learn tonight and my document is gone. I’m so upset. Tomorrow I find a competitor of googles.
Still crashing on iOS

Not enough features

Keep has been an amazing app for a very long time, but it has also been mostly unchanged over that time. Unfortunately Keep is now missing simple features that make is fail to other options.
Do better Google
by Leukoryte on 2021/06/02 20:05
This is a great service from Google but runs like absolute garbage on ios. Unusable. I now use a combination of pocket and standard notes.
Locks.
by cVeil on 2021/06/02 14:22
There should be an option to lock some noted with a passcode. I’m surprised that’s still not a thing.
Come on!!
by JumpinJack26 on 2021/05/30 22:13
Constantly crashes! Super frustrating. How many bug fixes and can’t get this right.
No undo function
by shesapeach on 2021/05/28 14:22
Please add an undo button or function for accidentally deleted text, and make it easier to select multiple lines or larger sections of text, or to select in general.
Love the app!
by kait12241 on 2021/05/27 15:38
I love using this app for all of my reminders &amp; lists! I wish there was a widget where I could have them like sticky notes on my phone! Just a suggestion that would be super cool &amp; helpful (:
Notes containing checkboxes are not editable on iPhone 12 Pro Max
by Lacina Fanny on 2021/05/27 11:03
As soon as I add checkboxes to a note, it switches to “view-only”. I can read the content but I cannot edit it. Very annoying as Google Keep is my default note-taking app. I had to downgrade the app’s rating to one star because of the poor customer service. I reported this issue to Google through their own online platform several times without any response from them whatsoever.
Needs a Widget
by ndisbbfjdhxbdhvd on 2021/05/25 23:20
Now that Apple has allowed widgets, I see absolutely no reason why this app is lacking one.
Fix Auto Scroll
by r00t us3r on 2021/05/25 04:18
I loved this app up until auto scrolling stopped working on drawings. For some reason this no longer wants to scroll down while I take notes.
Used to work but lacks support for issues
by Southern_Dude67 on 2021/05/24 22:15
Keep has been my go to app for a couple years. I even got others to use it. Now, I have to find another solution. I began having issues with the curser jumping around while taking notes, making lists, etc. Since there is no app support, I did what I normally do with an app that is malfunctioning - I delete it then download it again then restart my phone. After doing that I could no longer check off a checkbox once a task is complete &amp; when I try to delete checked items the app closes. I’ve tried many time to resolve the issue. The app support asks to “describe your issue” but really just goes to an unhelpful page on how to use checkboxes. I’ve sent feedback multiple times but apparently they don’t respond. I guess I’m done with the app now!
NOT WORKING
by OneCentMP on 2021/05/22 13:28
Check box lists are not working properly. Can’t edit or move items. Fix please!!!!!!!

Frustrated

I finally found this app a couple months ago and it&#39;s what I&#39;ve been searching for then randomly it completely stopped working... I can add items but can&#39;t check them off or delete items... Have to delete the entire list.. (It&#39;s fully updated and so is my iPhone 12, before captain obvious chimes in with that)
Date Required
by eid guneid on 2021/05/18 16:59
Most important thing is : inserting date please enable this function..... Date is very important We can’t know date any of notes
Widget

Hello Google. Could you please consider developing a new widget design on the home screen ( ios 14 and later ). Thank you.
New version but still broken
by nobody 537 on 2021/05/15 18:23
The lists are utterly broken for weeks. You can’t check off an item. You cannot delete an item unless from the bottom up. You can’t use the app for any lists. What’s wrong with the dev team smh. I’m switching apps.
Crashes when deleting a note with an image
by MMan03 on 2021/05/12 06:39
The app crashes when I delete a note that contains an image
Great so far
by Madalenc on 2021/05/11 23:31
I see a lot of negative reviews, but to me this app has all I want, I’ve been paying for the last free years for Moleskine Actions and to me this seems to be performing just about the same way and is free and I can add collaborators to certain lists such a shopping list with my wife so we both know what needs to be bought and at the same time I can have private lists for myself. Will be using this regularly so whenever I find the flaws others seem to find I will update , but so far it seems great to me
Fix the checkboxes
by M.M.B.S. on 2021/05/10 21:46
Used to rely on Google Keep for all of my quick notes and lists, but since the ability to properly edit lists with checkboxes stopped working a couple updates ago, it’s become entirely unusable for me. I was willing to give Google time to fix it, but the most recent update didn’t address the problem. Moving onto a different app.
Note with checboxes unable to edit
by Boss_Chicago on 2021/05/10 16:34
Still having issues after the updates
Decent so far, but only a B+ rating
by Geo_Potato on 2021/06/27 05:09
This is my first time using Keep for iOS, and I&#39;m impressed thus far. However, I have 3 moderate gripes to share: 1) I wish the app would retain the label selection when reopening the app. For example, if I have my &#34;Things to Do&#34; label filtered and then close the app, I would like for the &#34;Things to Do&#34; label filter to still be enabled when I relaunch the app. It wipes the label filter every time and displays all notes again without a filter. This gets annoying to reselect each time. 2) A nice enhancement would be to auto-invite collaborators to any notes within a specific label. Currently, I have to invite my partner to every note one-by-one. This gets somewhat tiresome after 30+ new note invites, which also spammed her email inbox with 30+ notifications. That workflow could be improved. 3) If inviting a collaborator to a note, have the assigned label(s) carry over to the collaborator&#39;s Keep. For example, I assigned my partner to several &#34;Gift Idea&#34; labeled notes, but she had to go in and manually create/assign the same label within her account so that we maintained the same label. These labels should sync across, in my opinion.
Used to love this app
by Torqued!! on 2018/05/02 02:34
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.
Flexible and easy; lots of suggestions
by habits are a blessing on 2021/09/12 13:10
Love this. I use Keep, Sheets, and Calendar together as my digital Bullet Journal, and I swear Keep has made me more organized and self aware! Does it’s job and has lots packed in it that others take for granted (pinned notes/post its, GCal integration, reminders, etc) However there’s lots of room for improvement. I feel like Keep is in this productivity app limbo where it doesn’t know if it wants to be a post it note application or a note taking application. It doesnt capture long term notes but it doesn’t seem to feel like a true “post-it”/corkboard application either, and the integration with Google Docs in both web and mobile is lacking. I would appreciate it Google Keep expanded into more of a Trello/ Post-It hybrid and allowed for 1) Allow for Folder/Notebook categorization 2.) Adding font / RTE formatting 3) Ability to organize post it’s like a kanban board or grid board or any which way instead of the limited gallery view 4)Seamless integration with Google docs and Google Calendar (where searching for notes and accessing Keep notes within the Docs and Calendar app are easy )
Good app, just some suggestions
by google.user.29283836 on 2020/09/02 03:51
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.
Best app for organization!
by Sirenia Garcia on 2018/07/16 14:42
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! ❤️
Incredible productivity tool!
by nbct.wright on 2017/12/28 10:38
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!
Scrolling and Return Key Bugs
by JohnAM32 on 2019/12/14 09:25
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.
Updated - Late September update seems to have fixed the issues caused by the August changes.
by shecasx on 2017/10/26 23:10
[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&#39;t connect. Screws up your entries. It&#39;s a disaster. And Google&#39;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&#39;ve heard us! And fix this used-to-be great app and the sync issues, please.
Good
by Iniyaaaa on 2019/04/28 02:31
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.
So close to 5 stars!
by tomas 846 on 2019/10/29 19:22
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
by xmanfreeman76 on 2017/12/02 10:22
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
by BoredMeteor on 2017/12/22 09:34
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.
Used to be a five star app...
by One of millions... on 2018/08/10 16:28
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.
There’s so much more you should add to it!
by Sana Haider on 2019/06/07 16:23
I really love this app, because I can access the contents from my phone or laptop because it’s connected to my google account. For that, I have no complaints. However, I wish there were more customizable options when taking notes. To be able to bold or italicize your notes so that they are more easier to read and more organized (like the apple notes app!) I think this app is great to jot down quick notes, but it could be even better for the major neat freaks out there like me if there was more customization with the notes you are taking! If there are features to put notes under labels to organize it in that sense, it should have more document features a well!
Good, but...
by itsmyw0nderland on 2018/01/08 19:17
Overall, the app is good. Display is visually appealing and is user friendly. But it could benefit from a few things: • in two column view, it would be nice if you could have the option to organize things in two columns rather than just from left-to-right format which automatically re-formats the remainder of the items • if you could add multiple lists in a single note. Once you make a list in a note, you don’t have the option of a line break to make a new list in the same note. • the date &amp; time reminder feature isn’t responsive. When you try to change the date or time of a reminder, it doesn’t recognize the change and just defaults back to the original time
Even buggier-unusable
by NHGadgetLuvr on 2019/03/29 12:22
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).
Lag, non-responsive, failures to sync
by oberon526 on 2017/10/01 08:21
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.
A few UX opportunities
by JamasonJ on 2020/01/19 00:20
Overall this is a fine app for notes and checklists especially when considering the benefits of it being slotted into the Google ecosystem. However there are two UX issues that come to mind that stop me from being all that happy with it. The first is a lack of a platform standard left edge swipe gesture to return to the top level list view from an individual note. You’re relying on users to tap the upper left arrow. Not conforming to basic platform conventions makes this app stick out as being inconsistent. There must be another way to make a checklist item a “sub” item — it’s frustrating to constantly do this on accident. The second issue I see is the floating of the “add” and “more” icons at the bottom of the display when the keyboard is open. Users assume that toolbars floating above the keyboard relate to the task of typing. e.g. in the stock iOS notes app, quick actions to adjust type formatting. Instead, these icons have more to do with the overall note. The ... “more” icon would probably make more sense in the upper right next to archive. The add button might make more sense as a floating action button in the lower right, visible when the keys are hidden.
Was once a great app
by DurdeeBurger on 2018/02/23 05:04
I still use this as my main note taking apps because if everything worked correctly it would fit my needs the best. I used to shared lists like grocery lists with my wife but we stopped doing that after too many syncing issues where we would get to the store and notice have the list is missing. I could get over that, however recently I have had this issue where when I’m trying to edit a list the keyboard keeps glitching where it seems like it’s constantly trying to create a new keyboard making it impossible to type. Happens way too often and kills the experience. Idk why this started to happen, worked great for so long. I would just use Apple notes but I want my checked items to get lumped together like this app does...wish they would fix this app.
Great app in need for a update
by Ahmed Awsaf on 2021/06/21 00:23
Really enjoy this app, used this app from a very young age and this app is really important to be. But the developers can you please make the app feel bit more personal by adding better privacy features. Like, when we log into our gmails its automatically there right specially on desktop. Yeah your desktop is your personal computer but still other people in the house can still access it for important purposes and for printing stuffs( if you got only one in the household) just give an update on google chrome where we can hide/lock the tabs using passcode. And give us the ability to lock certain notes which we don’t want to share if someone have the hold of our personal devices. Thank you.
Freezes—-MORE TIMES THAN NOT
by Note_Luver on 2019/07/18 19:06
Too bad...I’ve used this app since it’s I inception and to be candid it’s only gotten worse. I mean what enhancements hVe they released? 100% of their roadmap is to help THEM so they would care less about the UX. They obviously have some things they are monitoring because recently I’ve. Prices that the app is freezing 100% on station (for about 1 minutes). I stopped using because by the time to unlocks I forget what I was wanting to note down. VERY disappointment for Google. I think they perhaps juR night the app and distribute it as I cannot see a company like Google releasing this sort of garbage. BTW, I only have a few notes and a few images so it’s not a problem with the about of USER data being loaded. Instead they have some services that o cohost went untested thst is eating all the memory. . . Hi.
It’s weird that can’t set dark mode in mobile
by Patrick Li - 95 on 2020/03/02 22:55
I am an addicted user of google keep. And I use it in both mobile and website. I love the dark mode which does help me writing down some thoughts more willingly. However, it’s been a while since the dark mode came out, and still the only setting is from the web, which does take effect on mobile app. I honestly don’t get the point why we don&#39;t allow setting from the mobile app because sometimes like the early morning you still want to use dark mode and in the early evening you still want to use light mode. I am a product manager too and at those moments I will feel a bit frustrated.
Using Google Keep in the classroom
by Crowlarbear on 2019/05/05 20:30
If you and your students are using Google Classroom, Keep is an excellent addition to research tools. Show the young scholars how to use keep to save articles, and they don’t forget to copy info required in their Works Cited Page. Keep also allows group collaboration and when used in conjunction with Google Slides and Documents provides excellent communication for students working at home or unable to communicate orally (Reduces Social interruptions and promotes productivity). Particularly valuable when multiple students develop portions of projects independently with the intention of sharing/combining in final group activity.
You have to give it a chance
by Larry.McJ on 2018/08/03 14:25
The first time I tried Google Keep, it failed. However, that was not a problem with Google Keep, it was my problem and not fully understanding how Google keep works. Once I adapted to its way of keeping notes, I found it even better than apple notes, which I have used for years. Google keep does a nice job of organizing with labels, making it easier to find things were search rather than categories or folders. The clipper used in any browser is very effective. If you use Gmail, Google calendar, or have any investment in the Google ecosystem, you should try Google Keep. Once you adapt to it, you will like it.
Great potential to be better
by dhdjwofh jd on 2020/02/11 19:49
I am a Google user -- mail, calendar, drive, docs, forms, sheets -- I use it all. A lot of potential for this app that is not being developed, and in my mind all Google has to do is perform simple tweaks to better align Keep with its other apps: 1. Institute an easily visible folder system (just like drive). Tags and a limited array of colors do not cut it. Color codes should at least be automatic when you label with a certain tag. 2. Too easy to tap somewhere on the list and unintentionally edit or delete text. Add an edit button and eliminate the ability to edit just by tapping screen!!! So many times I&#39;ve gone into a note to check off a box or touched the screen &amp; ended up unintentionally altering my note. 3. Change notifications to match Calendar
Nice app, but still a lot to improve
by BobHuRunqiu on 2017/12/09 02:15
1. Widget on the lock screen only shows the reminders but not the to-do list, that makes it meaningless to have a lock screen widgets. The widgets should be able to uncheck and check the to-do list and see various kinds of notes in Keep. 2. If you choose to use check box in a note, the entire note has to be the check box list. But sometimes say I am making plans of the day and I want the note to be like different elements containing in a note.([]stands for the check box) ——————————————————— Plans for today [ ] Learning [ ]Assignment 1 (done before 10 a.m) [ ]Assignment 2 (submit before 11) [ ]... [ ] Shopping [ ]Item 1 [ ]Ietm 2 (PICTURE of Item2 added here) Make sure to come back at 5 p.m. (only set reminder at this event) ——————————————————— 3. The pictures can only be added at the top of the notes, making it impossible to record something with words and pictures in the notes. We sometimes take a photo of the powerpoint or add a screenshots in lecture notes, and then make some notes under the picture, but this cannot be done in Keep since the picture is on the top.
Just a small suggestion... 💫
by WinterStar_7 on 2019/11/20 19:12
I really like this app and I use it daily, mainly for writing/journaling since I want to feel secure that my data will always be in one place I could always access... and it’s all good, but I REALLY wish there was a way of highlighting sentences so I don’t have to scroll through a bunch of words and notes just to find what I’m looking for, or having to change apps to get that feature. Please, consider adding a highlighter in the near future. 💡 (Also, I personally think it’d be nice to be able to change fonts to bold, italic, underline or strikethrough. And also being able to lock the app and/or notes too. Just sayin’. 🤷🏻‍♀️)
Good integration with Google docs, collaborators
by menicosia on 2017/12/13 05:41
I like Keep more than Evernote because it has good integration with Google Docs (well, send to Docs) and you can add other collaborators easily. Some minor complaints: - I use a bluetooth keyboard to take notes. With the iPad in landscape mode, Keep only uses the top third of the screen, making room for an on-screen keyboard which is not present! I&#39;d love to make better use of my screen&#39;s real estate. - Once you&#39;ve sent an item to Google Docs, you can no longer edit it in Google Keep. I like Keep&#39;s lightweight editing UI, it would be nice if I could continue editing the text from this app, without having to switch over to the Google Docs editor. Or at least, remember a reference in Keep; sometimes I don&#39;t remember if I&#39;ve promoted a note to Google Docs, &#34;Why can&#39;t I find this note anymore? I could have sworn I&#39;d taken this down in Keep!&#34; - Can&#39;t add a collaborator for just one item in a task list. If I want to remind someone to do something, I need to create a new list and create a single to-do to add them as a collaborator.
Conceptually Great but Has Issues
by bsr_lwll on 2020/06/06 15:58
I have been using it for several years. As a secondary repository of my random notes. Most essential functionality was its standard cross-platform interface. However, the windows version became very slow and buggy at times. Eventually I stopped using. Recently I got a new machine, and check the app again on Chrome, perhaps there were updates and with the new high performing machine, I was hoping that it would do better job. Unfortunately, it was still slow and not very responsive. I have googled the issue and I could easily find many Windows 10 users describing quite similar issues. Otherwise, it was a good app for my designated uses.
Used to work but lacks support for issues
by Southern_Dude67 on 2021/05/24 22:15
Keep has been my go to app for a couple years. I even got others to use it. Now, I have to find another solution. I began having issues with the curser jumping around while taking notes, making lists, etc. Since there is no app support, I did what I normally do with an app that is malfunctioning - I delete it then download it again then restart my phone. After doing that I could no longer check off a checkbox once a task is complete &amp; when I try to delete checked items the app closes. I’ve tried many time to resolve the issue. The app support asks to “describe your issue” but really just goes to an unhelpful page on how to use checkboxes. I’ve sent feedback multiple times but apparently they don’t respond. I guess I’m done with the app now!
Update fixed nothing for my Chrome, iPad & iPhone
by Slow56 on 2018/10/19 13:37
The app worked great for about 2 months this summer. Then syncing stopped. And has only worked once that time about a month ago!! None of the recent updates have fixed anything for me! This app has great potential if it worked as promoted. The troubling shooting instruments would be helpful if the instructions matched what was being seen on the screens! Still have MAJOR syncing issues between Chrome, iPad &amp; iPhone!!!! I’ve never gotten a conflicting note ‘notification’ to select an updated vs outdated note. All devices at least ‘appear’ to be logged in to the same account, I only use it on one login. What does ‘offline’ mean when all devices have Internet access???? Please expand your troubling instructions ‘cause they ain’t work’n for me! I use this for work and can’t mess with this much longer.

I think it would be nice and easier to keep notes if there were folders like iPhone Note. That is, when taking notes, for example, labels could be dropped into topical folders—perhaps sociological notes in the sociology folder. While true that the label &#34;sociology&#34; works fine as well, it is consumed by the Google Keep label list, and you have to scroll alphabetically to find it. It seems simpler to organise it topically, and, for me, it&#39;d get *so* much more use. For now, I can only use it to take notes in one field, and I&#39;m deliberating on finding something else instead with a similar feature (kinda like Bear).
Useful!
by AlixInWinterland on 2018/02/02 16:19
I&#39;ve only had this app for a couple days so I haven&#39;t been able to see to its full functionality but I think that so far, the app has its uses. I&#39;ve used many note and list apps, including onenote, evernote, wunderlist, and apple&#39;s native reminders and notes apps. This app combines the functionality of a note and a list into one app with a sticky note design, which is appealing for me. I haven&#39;t really done any syncing across devices so I haven&#39;t experienced any of those issues. Most of the updating I do will be via phone as I see it&#39;s most usefulness being as a mobile app when I can&#39;t reach a computer to jot something down. One thing that made me dock a star off though is that I have multiple Gmail accounts attached to my phone. Every time I open the app, it asks for which account to use (as the saves are done by account, which makes sense.) It would be nice to be able to set a default account, as I&#39;ve never had this kind of problem in the Gmail app and it&#39;s not like the number of accounts on that app is any different.
I think maybe you broke it…

I’ve been using this fantastic app on my phone for years. I now have an iPhone and I’ve had the same phone for over two years. However in the last month, I’ve been having all kinds of problems with Keep. I have to exit the program every time I edit a list because the text overlays other text and it’s not aligned properly on the screen. It may be a different problem but I’m also having all kinds of problems with the Google app, which again I have used for years and loved. These are the only apps on my iPhone I’m having problems with and I’m wondering whether it’s Apple or Google that’s giving me a problem.
Lovely but a new frightening disappointing experience happened
by Vd using GK on 2019/12/31 00:36
I have loved its usefulness and user friendly note keeping since the beginning I started using it years ago, recently it’s the second time in this month that after some days (maybe about a week) using it offline the app stops working and doesn’t open, so all my notes and images that I had collected is lost cause no matter how I tried to open the app it doesn’t work. It’s a serious bug in my opinion and it needs a solution because it is a very good app but also my work is too important get lost so easily.
Great app!
by Emetmvas on 2020/11/04 15:36
I use this app everyday other than my apple notes app. You can’t really customize too much but you don’t need to. It’s great gift just taking quick notes on any device I use. I use macs and PCs for work so it’s really tough to find an app that’s useful for both. I love how quickly the notes or lists get updated on all my devices. This is a great app because I haven’t had any issues with it yet. All my notes and data are always saved. I don’t have any complaints about it. It would be cool to customize more with the font. I love this app though.
Superior thanks to simplicity, versatility and appearance
by LasseLus on 2018/09/21 12:50
I keep returning to Keep after numerous cases of having been seduced and ultimately left disappointed by more complex to-do apps, which I consistently find not being worth the sustained effort they require. Being a simple minded person, I need the intuitive simplicity of Keep. It can be bent to serve all sorts of purposes and, importantly, it displays them side by side rather than hiding them in drill-down hierarchies with excessive space between line items. My wish is for Google to let Keep retain its brilliant simplicity while allocating a bit more resources to its maintenance and refinement.
Great for School, could use some more customization
by Rmshdbveis on 2021/03/25 00:23
I really like this app, i’ve been using it every year of high school, and it works perfectly. The checklists make me have a clear view of what i need to get done, and the fact that i can pair up checklists with reminders is amazing! I would like some more customization and additions. I’d really like to see the following customization options: -More Colors (i like to label my classes with colors, and i have more classes than colors right now) -More Themes( Dark and Light are awesome, but being able to pick from more, or even creating your own, would be nice) -Nicer Ui (the current text and buttons is nice, but i’d like maybe a few different options) additions i would make: -iPhone Widgets(so that i don’t have to open the app to check stuff) -Swipe functionality (make it so that i can swipe left to see the left bar menu, swipe up to create a new note, swiping right takes you from notes to reminders)
Limited color choices and a bit buggy but overall a great app
by LoveMeSomeRedVines on 2019/06/30 17:28
The colors are a bit bright and the contrast of the black against them is jarring for my eyes. Would love to see more options for colored backgrounds. (This is not just a design option - it’s a functional feature bc it helps locate specific lists quickly when they are color coded.) The app can be buggy and sometimes it crashes when I am adding items. But it’s not all that frequent. Overall it’s an excellent tool to keep things organized. I recommend it to many people, especially teachers.
Easily best for link-based lists
by windrunner27 on 2020/02/02 20:56
I’m shopping for things across websites and making a decision with my dad, I can make a note and put all the links there and Keep makes the note have tidy little previews that are east to tap and evaluate a a glance. No more sharing a word document with long links, or with or tedious to make hyperlinks. It’s nice that iMessage allows you to just view the links shared in a conversation, but Keep is better for me since we will switch topics often, and want to exclusively view all my potential - for instance: motorcycles - in one place.
Customizable and Simple
by aberrantartist on 2019/10/19 13:54
I’ve been using this app since it launched around 2012 or 2013 and it’s been very helpful for me and easy to continue and customize for my needs. They’ve added some nice features along the way as well. One thing that would really take it to the next level for me is having a dark mode for drawings/written notes. Right now even if the app is in dark mode, if I open a drawing it will always be a white background. The Apple notes app has a dark background available so I’m sure it would be achievable by Google! I really hope this can be! 🙏🏻
Amazing but
by The hamster ninja on 2018/04/29 07:15
I love this app it’s easy to use and Aesthetically pleasing I like how everything is in a nice neat order but I would love if I had the ability to create files for different notes for example if I had one for math notes and another for homework I need to complete I know I can put labels on things it it still all shows up under “notes” I also think it would be great to have the option to bold things or change the font and color etc. Another thing is sometimes notes stop opening but I found if you open another note and click on it agin it works or if you archive it and undo it works but that’s a lot of work and I hope that bug could be fixed
I LOVE Google Keep
by kkapatos on 2019/01/17 05:17
A good way to keep track of stuff. Just go to the menu on your computer in google and select more and it will take you right to it. You can use it for work to create to do lists and set reminders that sync right to your calendar. you can also set up your inbox so that it is pulled up on your computer all of the time. You can also use it on the go which is what I use it for the shopping list feature. it is amazing and I can&#39;t say better things about an app like Google Keep.
Don’t Like the New Look
by TaRacey on 2018/12/02 13:11
They still haven’t updated the small font issue. So this app is useless to me. I really hope there is a way to get the old look back because I don’t like the new look. Since you have changed the font everything is much smaller now and harder for older eyes to see and read it. Please tell me there is a way to switch back to the old way. Update: Things are pretty much back to normal with latest update. Thank you! This app worked well until the current update. Now I can’t use it. Keeps telling me it needs to refresh and when I click the refresh button it crashes and when it finally opens about 80% of my content is missing. I seriously need to get to my notes. Please fix this! Update: The few lists I was left with after this recent update can’t be changed. I can’t move anything within the list and the app continues to insist that it needs to be refreshed and then crashes. Other important notes are gone and not showing up at all. Very disappointing. When you try to make things better for others, please don’t make things worse for the rest of us.
Great so far
by Madalenc on 2021/05/11 23:31
I see a lot of negative reviews, but to me this app has all I want, I’ve been paying for the last free years for Moleskine Actions and to me this seems to be performing just about the same way and is free and I can add collaborators to certain lists such a shopping list with my wife so we both know what needs to be bought and at the same time I can have private lists for myself. Will be using this regularly so whenever I find the flaws others seem to find I will update , but so far it seems great to me
A Keeper
by Sandy seashore on 2019/06/16 21:00
i’m kinda perplexed by some of the complaints from recent reviewers. i’m low tech though &amp; perhaps that’s to my advantage when it comes to this app because i’ve tried dozens like it over the course of my many years as an iphone haver &amp; this app changed the game for me. i’ve had it a year or more and it’s given me exactly zero issues. it’s convenient, colorful, functional, &amp; free. if i were you i’d download this sweet little widget wonder and if you don’t like it then delete it. i’m here to help &amp; you are all welcome 😉
First I generally love google keep
by GardenGoddess on 2019/01/12 22:06
My problem is that it wouldn’t sync and the new look. Got the can’t update try again later thing constantly. I couldn’t resolve it any other way. I updated it. Not getting message now but stuff added recently on another device still hasn’t shown up. On a very bad note, I hate how it looks now. The colors aren’t as bright. The font is smaller with no option to change. There is a shading thing going on now, definitely won’t be updating my other devices.
Trash
by Todd729 on 2021/10/24 23:24
Buggy. Idiosyncratic. Drawings don’t scroll without inexplicably zooming. Free movement of canvas/drawing area is limited. Not enough white space provided to do math problems without bumping against an immovable border. Document spontaneously closes when merely drawing a line from left to right with the stylus. Document reopens NOT at the level of the last edit but all the way at the very top, forcing endless scrolling just to get back to your work, at which point you draw a left-right line and it closes again. Typical poorly implemented, inconsiderate Google garbage. Time-wasting. Effort-wasting. Makes no sense. Designed by half-awake, out-of-touch engineers looking for a paycheck. Bad UI. Bad UX. Maybe good for you if you need a gimmicky one-trick pony with an absurdly narrow range of functionality.
Would prefer giving zero stars
by IrishCady on 2020/03/25 12:04
The latest update kept giving me annoying notifications to “resolve” my checked items in my To-Do list. I don’t want to resolve my checked items, I need them for reviewing a timeline history. I tried unchecking them, and all my recent unchecked items on top disappeared and I can’t retrieve them. Despite multiple notes besides my To Do list, this app is now worthless to me. If it loses my items and reminders, what’s the point? Oh, Google, are you following the tradition of Apple in creating/updating useless apps? The whole reason I don’t use Apple’s Reminders is because of what I just described above. My entries are always mysteriously dropped. Keep was reliable for awhile, and I see it just reached it’s end of life.

Clunky, not as good as Android
by nkyjoe on 2021/11/23 20:47
Something about this feels off, and it probably has to do with how slowly the iOS keyboard comes and goes on and off screen. Things scroll so much more slowly when the keyboard toggles. I feel much more productive with the Android version.
Best app hands down
by KLHarman on 2021/11/19 09:11
This has been and still is my most used app on my phone for years now - both on android and iPhone. I use Google Keep for daily lists and needed information and is great for ADHD productivity. I do wish there was a little more ability create within a new block such as typography and being able to bold words, underline etc.

DIDNT SAVE MY NOTES
by (^_^)Nattie~<3 on 2021/11/09 11:09
And to think I used google specifically instead of another app or site for the same reason. I know things happen, but my thoughts were “ google is such a reputable company, I know nothing would happen to my notes if use their app” Now you can imagine my surprise. Won’t be continuing so this can happen to me again, whole comp sci chapter, and 3 hours of taking them just gone and wasted. Thanks
One huge shortcoming
by Graymer58 on 2021/11/08 18:59
Love this app, as I use an android phone, but please, please, please let us bold or highlight text! Something, anything (other than using all caps) to make selected text stand out. It’s rather incredible to me this feature doesn’t exist.

Too Much Lag Recently
by Alirazais on 2021/11/04 23:21
Even though I am an iOS user, this has been my go-to app for shared grocery lists etc. Lately however, the app has been very slow and has considerable lag. Checked off items don’t go away and the app appears to be unresponsive. Suddenly it would catch up and mess up your whole list. Same thing for newly added items, if one user adds something it is not visible to other users right away like it used to be. Fix it please before I am forced to switch!
love this app!!!

I’ve used it for over a year now with some ongoing lists like health notes, Christmas gift ideas, gardening schedules, and such because it was so easy to use. When I opened the app today it was all gone. Not in trash or archives. Gone. I guess I learned my lesson about using it for more than a shopping list. Don’t put anything down you wouldn’t mind disappearing the next day!

by habits are a blessing on 2021/09/12 13:10
Love this. I use Keep, Sheets, and Calendar together as my digital Bullet Journal, and I swear Keep has made me more organized and self aware! Does it’s job and has lots packed in it that others take for granted (pinned notes/post its, GCal integration, reminders, etc) However there’s lots of room for improvement. I feel like Keep is in this productivity app limbo where it doesn’t know if it wants to be a post it note application or a note taking application. It doesnt capture long term notes but it doesn’t seem to feel like a true “post-it”/corkboard application either, and the integration with Google Docs in both web and mobile is lacking. I would appreciate it Google Keep expanded into more of a Trello/ Post-It hybrid and allowed for 1) Allow for Folder/Notebook categorization 2.) Adding font / RTE formatting 3) Ability to organize post it’s like a kanban board or grid board or any which way instead of the limited gallery view 4)Seamless integration with Google docs and Google Calendar (where searching for notes and accessing Keep notes within the Docs and Calendar app are easy )
AMAZING- but….
by goatbully on 2021/09/10 03:04
It’s amazing so far if I’m being genuine but something that will make most of us iOS users to pleasure is making a widget and being able to customize the widget. I’m asking a huge favor for all of us, so if you can please connect this app with widgets.

IOS IPhone font size
by GB_Chs on 2021/09/04 09:30
Using this app for note taking for years on an Android phone, I switched to the IPhone. Font is way too small and no adjustment can be made. So unfortunately this is another Google product on an IPhone I am deleting and will have to find a substitute. You would think Google could make their apps work better on an IPhone.

Very Good but Lacks Functional Daily Reminders (a should be major feature)
by jordanphim on 2021/08/25 14:02
There are many useful features on the app, but one key feature is extremely lacking in its most vital use: Daily Reminders are not well made. Making a reminder with a checklist that repeats daily will not have the items uncheck the next time. It completely defeats the point of allowing the list to repeat. It leaves you in a position to have to use Keep and Tasks, which is extremely annoying. The only good feature in Tasks is just that, Daily Reminders. That app is very underdeveloped. There is no reason the two apps cannot be one.
Great app!
by Heatherandlennart on 2021/08/22 20:01
I love this app however I really wish there was a widget function. Many other apps have adapted to the new iOS widgets but this one still hasn’t. :(

I’m a google guy. I use google apps for everything. Unfortunately, I cannot use keep. It is simple, which google is known for, but to a deep degree. I would like to see some more features, bullets, lists, bolding, etc. it’s just hard to use for more elaborate note taking.

When I open this app on iOS it takes an eternity to sync. The pulldown does literally nothing for at least 10 seconds. Then when I do open a note the keyboard struggles to open. Never had these problems on Android. Is Google doing this on purpose? This uses to be my favorite notes app!
Font is too small
by Thursday _89 on 2021/08/11 00:07
Please allow text size to adjust with the system font. All my apps do so except for this one
Love it
by Mr. brahim on 2021/08/10 12:25
Would you please allow us more colors to choose from.
The best simple(advanced) note app
by Langgoose on 2021/08/09 18:16
Don’t let the title of this review mislead you. This app has advanced features. I say simple because if you are not interested in advanced features, it is easy to use the app in it’s basic form. If the basics is all you want then do not stress, the basics is all you will see and use. How can I explain this… There is no learning curve to this app. You just use it, and it is awesome. I was a pixel user for sometime. I enjoyed the Google software. I ended up leaving android because I appreciate Apple‘s concern for my privacy. I could not leave Google Keep behind. This app is perfection.
We enjoy this app.. but please add
by Kindness goes a long way. on 2021/08/06 01:28
My family and I love sharing lists between each other using this app. The only thing that would make it better is if when we look up a word it would take you directly to that word. I do not mean the heading but it would be more user friendly to go to the word within the document to get to it quicker.
Problems with my lists
by Brittany l f on 2021/08/04 16:20
Hi, I’ve used this app successfully for several years but all of a sudden my lists aren’t acting right and when I try to rearrange items it keeps closing the app instead. Google support please help, I couldn’t find my issue in any of the troubleshooting guides you have.
Needs improvement
by ajjsjdudhhsjj on 2021/08/02 04:46
The app is nice and all but I can’t save any files except images. This needs to change, please make it available for everyone to save other types of files and documents.
J'adore
by Bram's Tantus on 2021/07/30 03:50
Mon avis et ce que je voudrais de la part de l&#39;équipe c&#39;est de permettre aux gens d&#39;ajouter leurs propres images en backgrounds pas seulement ceux que propose L&#39;équipe.
To Do Lists
by Jdksncj on 2021/07/28 23:10
This app has saved my life. Id be a miserable mess without ToDo lists and Im super great full this app makes making and editing them so easy. A few critiques tho. I wish there was a way to put hide-able notes on each task just for further detail or instructions. And i wish i could break them down further into sub-sub bullets. And i wish there was a more efficient use of space on the screen so that you could have more words in a line. This would prevent having to make bullet lists like this.
Too limited
by user12345678910 on 2021/07/27 19:06
This could be such a great app. I really like google workspace but it seems that keep is neglected. Some recommendations, add sub labels and add images anywhere on the page not just at the top. Please don’t leave this as a gateway app to google docs.
Date of Notification
by toomanyweaponz on 2021/07/25 15:17
Pretty much once every 2 weeks I stop getting notifications from daily reminders because Keep somehow changes to the next year (2022) so I have to change each one back to the current year (2021) then trey start working again
Widget (iOS 14 style) Support
by ABC Bob 12 on 2021/07/22 22:13
App would get a 5 star rating from me if they added the ability to put widgets on whatever screen I choose (not just in the designated widget space to left of Notification Center). Would be helpful to see specific notes on the screen without having to go into the actual app.
Great app for Keep Sake
by realup4ya on 2021/07/16 19:07
I been using this app for YEARS! I love it, simple. They just updated the backgrounds and I love it. Would highly recommend :)
Type is too small and can’t be adjusted
by zLeigh3 on 2021/07/12 20:21
I would use this app ALL the time but on the iPhone the type is unusually small and hard to see and can’t be adjusted at all. A killer flaw and what a bummer.
Incredibly finicky but I guess it works
by STRichard46 on 2021/07/10 23:39
I recently made the switch to an iPhone and was expecting to have better performance/quality on iOS but it a lot worse. Getting a constant notification saying that it can’t connect, doesn’t let me scroll if I tap a certain note, and the swiping to go back doesn’t work like every single other app. I made a few notes and updated others and it was synced so it does work technically. I just expected much more from google. Guess I’ll have to get used to the stock notes app
Widgets?
by Noctis L. Sawyer on 2021/07/08 21:41
When will the keep widgets be updated?
Bug found?
by breecuningham on 2021/07/07 16:47
Only flaw I found is that when I try to move a check-box from the right (tabbed position) back to the left side by swiping it to the left with my finger the app automatically closes. Every time. So if I accidently move a check-box to the right then I can&#39;t get it back to original place on the left.
Refreshing
by Mel5666 on 2021/07/03 01:14
I absolutely loved this app but lately all it does is refresh old and deleted notes. I don&#39;t use it anymore.
In deed of a Widget!
by Maiku14585 on 2021/07/02 13:47
Google Kepps is excelent for all types of notes! Its basic yeah but usefull. It just needs a good widget for the ios platform please🙌
Spotlight search bug
by R3Z4F1 on 2021/07/01 22:29
The spotlight search only search in notes that have title
any plans for a widget?
by snr. uxer on 2021/07/01 16:39
would love to see a widget for maps like fav spots of daily commute + for keep
Copy-paste
by DragonMalad on 2021/06/27 22:50
The copy-paste is buggy.
Decent so far, but only a B+ rating
by Geo_Potato on 2021/06/27 05:09
This is my first time using Keep for iOS, and I&#39;m impressed thus far. However, I have 3 moderate gripes to share: 1) I wish the app would retain the label selection when reopening the app. For example, if I have my &#34;Things to Do&#34; label filtered and then close the app, I would like for the &#34;Things to Do&#34; label filter to still be enabled when I relaunch the app. It wipes the label filter every time and displays all notes again without a filter. This gets annoying to reselect each time. 2) A nice enhancement would be to auto-invite collaborators to any notes within a specific label. Currently, I have to invite my partner to every note one-by-one. This gets somewhat tiresome after 30+ new note invites, which also spammed her email inbox with 30+ notifications. That workflow could be improved. 3) If inviting a collaborator to a note, have the assigned label(s) carry over to the collaborator&#39;s Keep. For example, I assigned my partner to several &#34;Gift Idea&#34; labeled notes, but she had to go in and manually create/assign the same label within her account so that we maintained the same label. These labels should sync across, in my opinion.
It’s good but too slow
by mrarn21 on 2021/06/26 14:41
Its a good app but after some weeks of begin to be so slow looks like after you make a lot of note it wouldnt have any cash storage on the phone and after running evrytime needs to risive data from server
Laggy an unresponsive at times
by Odagirijoy on 2021/06/21 01:46
I’m a loyal user of this app on desktop and Android. But the performance of this app on iOS is not on par with the other platforms. The app often stops responding upon opening, and can’t perform basic tasks like opening a link. Please fix this.
Great app in need for a update
by Ahmed Awsaf on 2021/06/21 00:23
Really enjoy this app, used this app from a very young age and this app is really important to be. But the developers can you please make the app feel bit more personal by adding better privacy features. Like, when we log into our gmails its automatically there right specially on desktop. Yeah your desktop is your personal computer but still other people in the house can still access it for important purposes and for printing stuffs( if you got only one in the household) just give an update on google chrome where we can hide/lock the tabs using passcode. And give us the ability to lock certain notes which we don’t want to share if someone have the hold of our personal devices. Thank you.
It was ok until it deleted my note
by Snacksalot on 2021/06/12 05:27
For more then a year I had a note on notes app then moved it to this. It’s deleted now and I can’t access a prior version or undo the glitch. In an existing note if you accidentally select all then go out of a note it will delete the note without an option to undo. It was a sad lesson to learn tonight and my document is gone. I’m so upset. Tomorrow I find a competitor of googles.
Still crashing on iOS
by TexasJG on 2021/06/11 01:31
Kept crashing on iPhone. Updated and now it won&#39;t even open. Google, please fix it!
Not enough features
by SanidMann on 2021/06/08 19:44
Keep has been an amazing app for a very long time, but it has also been mostly unchanged over that time. Unfortunately Keep is now missing simple features that make is fail to other options.
Do better Google
by Leukoryte on 2021/06/02 20:05
This is a great service from Google but runs like absolute garbage on ios. Unusable. I now use a combination of pocket and standard notes.
Locks.
by cVeil on 2021/06/02 14:22
There should be an option to lock some noted with a passcode. I’m surprised that’s still not a thing.
Come on!!
by JumpinJack26 on 2021/05/30 22:13
Constantly crashes! Super frustrating. How many bug fixes and can’t get this right.
No undo function
by shesapeach on 2021/05/28 14:22
Please add an undo button or function for accidentally deleted text, and make it easier to select multiple lines or larger sections of text, or to select in general.
Love the app!
by kait12241 on 2021/05/27 15:38
I love using this app for all of my reminders &amp; lists! I wish there was a widget where I could have them like sticky notes on my phone! Just a suggestion that would be super cool &amp; helpful (:
Notes containing checkboxes are not editable on iPhone 12 Pro Max
by Lacina Fanny on 2021/05/27 11:03
As soon as I add checkboxes to a note, it switches to “view-only”. I can read the content but I cannot edit it. Very annoying as Google Keep is my default note-taking app. I had to downgrade the app’s rating to one star because of the poor customer service. I reported this issue to Google through their own online platform several times without any response from them whatsoever.
Needs a Widget
by ndisbbfjdhxbdhvd on 2021/05/25 23:20
Now that Apple has allowed widgets, I see absolutely no reason why this app is lacking one.
Fix Auto Scroll
by r00t us3r on 2021/05/25 04:18
I loved this app up until auto scrolling stopped working on drawings. For some reason this no longer wants to scroll down while I take notes.
Used to work but lacks support for issues
by Southern_Dude67 on 2021/05/24 22:15
Keep has been my go to app for a couple years. I even got others to use it. Now, I have to find another solution. I began having issues with the curser jumping around while taking notes, making lists, etc. Since there is no app support, I did what I normally do with an app that is malfunctioning - I delete it then download it again then restart my phone. After doing that I could no longer check off a checkbox once a task is complete &amp; when I try to delete checked items the app closes. I’ve tried many time to resolve the issue. The app support asks to “describe your issue” but really just goes to an unhelpful page on how to use checkboxes. I’ve sent feedback multiple times but apparently they don’t respond. I guess I’m done with the app now!
NOT WORKING
by OneCentMP on 2021/05/22 13:28
Check box lists are not working properly. Can’t edit or move items. Fix please!!!!!!!
Order of things

Frustrated
by Thgfgvhjfcbjgcbhdcbgcxseddcg on 2021/05/18 18:34
I finally found this app a couple months ago and it&#39;s what I&#39;ve been searching for then randomly it completely stopped working... I can add items but can&#39;t check them off or delete items... Have to delete the entire list.. (It&#39;s fully updated and so is my iPhone 12, before captain obvious chimes in with that)
Date Required
by eid guneid on 2021/05/18 16:59
Most important thing is : inserting date please enable this function..... Date is very important We can’t know date any of notes
Widget

Hello Google. Could you please consider developing a new widget design on the home screen ( ios 14 and later ). Thank you.
New version but still broken
by nobody 537 on 2021/05/15 18:23
The lists are utterly broken for weeks. You can’t check off an item. You cannot delete an item unless from the bottom up. You can’t use the app for any lists. What’s wrong with the dev team smh. I’m switching apps.
Crashes when deleting a note with an image
by MMan03 on 2021/05/12 06:39
The app crashes when I delete a note that contains an image
Great so far
by Madalenc on 2021/05/11 23:31
I see a lot of negative reviews, but to me this app has all I want, I’ve been paying for the last free years for Moleskine Actions and to me this seems to be performing just about the same way and is free and I can add collaborators to certain lists such a shopping list with my wife so we both know what needs to be bought and at the same time I can have private lists for myself. Will be using this regularly so whenever I find the flaws others seem to find I will update , but so far it seems great to me
Fix the checkboxes
by M.M.B.S. on 2021/05/10 21:46
Used to rely on Google Keep for all of my quick notes and lists, but since the ability to properly edit lists with checkboxes stopped working a couple updates ago, it’s become entirely unusable for me. I was willing to give Google time to fix it, but the most recent update didn’t address the problem. Moving onto a different app.

Used to love this app
by Torqued!! on 2018/05/02 02:34
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.
Flexible and easy; lots of suggestions
by habits are a blessing on 2021/09/12 13:10
Love this. I use Keep, Sheets, and Calendar together as my digital Bullet Journal, and I swear Keep has made me more organized and self aware! Does it’s job and has lots packed in it that others take for granted (pinned notes/post its, GCal integration, reminders, etc) However there’s lots of room for improvement. I feel like Keep is in this productivity app limbo where it doesn’t know if it wants to be a post it note application or a note taking application. It doesnt capture long term notes but it doesn’t seem to feel like a true “post-it”/corkboard application either, and the integration with Google Docs in both web and mobile is lacking. I would appreciate it Google Keep expanded into more of a Trello/ Post-It hybrid and allowed for 1) Allow for Folder/Notebook categorization 2.) Adding font / RTE formatting 3) Ability to organize post it’s like a kanban board or grid board or any which way instead of the limited gallery view 4)Seamless integration with Google docs and Google Calendar (where searching for notes and accessing Keep notes within the Docs and Calendar app are easy )
Good app, just some suggestions
by google.user.29283836 on 2020/09/02 03:51
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.
Best app for organization!
by Sirenia Garcia on 2018/07/16 14:42
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! ❤️
Incredible productivity tool!
by nbct.wright on 2017/12/28 10:38
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!
Scrolling and Return Key Bugs
by JohnAM32 on 2019/12/14 09:25
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.
Updated - Late September update seems to have fixed the issues caused by the August changes.
by shecasx on 2017/10/26 23:10
[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&#39;t connect. Screws up your entries. It&#39;s a disaster. And Google&#39;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&#39;ve heard us! And fix this used-to-be great app and the sync issues, please.
Good
by Iniyaaaa on 2019/04/28 02:31
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.
So close to 5 stars!
by tomas 846 on 2019/10/29 19:22
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
by xmanfreeman76 on 2017/12/02 10:22
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
by BoredMeteor on 2017/12/22 09:34
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.
Used to be a five star app...
by One of millions... on 2018/08/10 16:28
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.
There’s so much more you should add to it!
by Sana Haider on 2019/06/07 16:23
I really love this app, because I can access the contents from my phone or laptop because it’s connected to my google account. For that, I have no complaints. However, I wish there were more customizable options when taking notes. To be able to bold or italicize your notes so that they are more easier to read and more organized (like the apple notes app!) I think this app is great to jot down quick notes, but it could be even better for the major neat freaks out there like me if there was more customization with the notes you are taking! If there are features to put notes under labels to organize it in that sense, it should have more document features a well!
Good, but...

Overall, the app is good. Display is visually appealing and is user friendly. But it could benefit from a few things: • in two column view, it would be nice if you could have the option to organize things in two columns rather than just from left-to-right format which automatically re-formats the remainder of the items • if you could add multiple lists in a single note. Once you make a list in a note, you don’t have the option of a line break to make a new list in the same note. • the date &amp; time reminder feature isn’t responsive. When you try to change the date or time of a reminder, it doesn’t recognize the change and just defaults back to the original time
Even buggier-unusable
by NHGadgetLuvr on 2019/03/29 12:22
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).
Lag, non-responsive, failures to sync
by oberon526 on 2017/10/01 08:21
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.
A few UX opportunities
by JamasonJ on 2020/01/19 00:20
Overall this is a fine app for notes and checklists especially when considering the benefits of it being slotted into the Google ecosystem. However there are two UX issues that come to mind that stop me from being all that happy with it. The first is a lack of a platform standard left edge swipe gesture to return to the top level list view from an individual note. You’re relying on users to tap the upper left arrow. Not conforming to basic platform conventions makes this app stick out as being inconsistent. There must be another way to make a checklist item a “sub” item — it’s frustrating to constantly do this on accident. The second issue I see is the floating of the “add” and “more” icons at the bottom of the display when the keyboard is open. Users assume that toolbars floating above the keyboard relate to the task of typing. e.g. in the stock iOS notes app, quick actions to adjust type formatting. Instead, these icons have more to do with the overall note. The ... “more” icon would probably make more sense in the upper right next to archive. The add button might make more sense as a floating action button in the lower right, visible when the keys are hidden.
Was once a great app
by DurdeeBurger on 2018/02/23 05:04
I still use this as my main note taking apps because if everything worked correctly it would fit my needs the best. I used to shared lists like grocery lists with my wife but we stopped doing that after too many syncing issues where we would get to the store and notice have the list is missing. I could get over that, however recently I have had this issue where when I’m trying to edit a list the keyboard keeps glitching where it seems like it’s constantly trying to create a new keyboard making it impossible to type. Happens way too often and kills the experience. Idk why this started to happen, worked great for so long. I would just use Apple notes but I want my checked items to get lumped together like this app does...wish they would fix this app.
Great app in need for a update
by Ahmed Awsaf on 2021/06/21 00:23
Really enjoy this app, used this app from a very young age and this app is really important to be. But the developers can you please make the app feel bit more personal by adding better privacy features. Like, when we log into our gmails its automatically there right specially on desktop. Yeah your desktop is your personal computer but still other people in the house can still access it for important purposes and for printing stuffs( if you got only one in the household) just give an update on google chrome where we can hide/lock the tabs using passcode. And give us the ability to lock certain notes which we don’t want to share if someone have the hold of our personal devices. Thank you.
Freezes—-MORE TIMES THAN NOT
by Note_Luver on 2019/07/18 19:06
Too bad...I’ve used this app since it’s I inception and to be candid it’s only gotten worse. I mean what enhancements hVe they released? 100% of their roadmap is to help THEM so they would care less about the UX. They obviously have some things they are monitoring because recently I’ve. Prices that the app is freezing 100% on station (for about 1 minutes). I stopped using because by the time to unlocks I forget what I was wanting to note down. VERY disappointment for Google. I think they perhaps juR night the app and distribute it as I cannot see a company like Google releasing this sort of garbage. BTW, I only have a few notes and a few images so it’s not a problem with the about of USER data being loaded. Instead they have some services that o cohost went untested thst is eating all the memory. . . Hi.
It’s weird that can’t set dark mode in mobile
by Patrick Li - 95 on 2020/03/02 22:55
I am an addicted user of google keep. And I use it in both mobile and website. I love the dark mode which does help me writing down some thoughts more willingly. However, it’s been a while since the dark mode came out, and still the only setting is from the web, which does take effect on mobile app. I honestly don’t get the point why we don&#39;t allow setting from the mobile app because sometimes like the early morning you still want to use dark mode and in the early evening you still want to use light mode. I am a product manager too and at those moments I will feel a bit frustrated.
Using Google Keep in the classroom
by Crowlarbear on 2019/05/05 20:30
If you and your students are using Google Classroom, Keep is an excellent addition to research tools. Show the young scholars how to use keep to save articles, and they don’t forget to copy info required in their Works Cited Page. Keep also allows group collaboration and when used in conjunction with Google Slides and Documents provides excellent communication for students working at home or unable to communicate orally (Reduces Social interruptions and promotes productivity). Particularly valuable when multiple students develop portions of projects independently with the intention of sharing/combining in final group activity.
You have to give it a chance
by Larry.McJ on 2018/08/03 14:25
The first time I tried Google Keep, it failed. However, that was not a problem with Google Keep, it was my problem and not fully understanding how Google keep works. Once I adapted to its way of keeping notes, I found it even better than apple notes, which I have used for years. Google keep does a nice job of organizing with labels, making it easier to find things were search rather than categories or folders. The clipper used in any browser is very effective. If you use Gmail, Google calendar, or have any investment in the Google ecosystem, you should try Google Keep. Once you adapt to it, you will like it.
Great potential to be better
by dhdjwofh jd on 2020/02/11 19:49
I am a Google user -- mail, calendar, drive, docs, forms, sheets -- I use it all. A lot of potential for this app that is not being developed, and in my mind all Google has to do is perform simple tweaks to better align Keep with its other apps: 1. Institute an easily visible folder system (just like drive). Tags and a limited array of colors do not cut it. Color codes should at least be automatic when you label with a certain tag. 2. Too easy to tap somewhere on the list and unintentionally edit or delete text. Add an edit button and eliminate the ability to edit just by tapping screen!!! So many times I&#39;ve gone into a note to check off a box or touched the screen &amp; ended up unintentionally altering my note. 3. Change notifications to match Calendar
Nice app, but still a lot to improve
by BobHuRunqiu on 2017/12/09 02:15
1. Widget on the lock screen only shows the reminders but not the to-do list, that makes it meaningless to have a lock screen widgets. The widgets should be able to uncheck and check the to-do list and see various kinds of notes in Keep. 2. If you choose to use check box in a note, the entire note has to be the check box list. But sometimes say I am making plans of the day and I want the note to be like different elements containing in a note.([]stands for the check box) ——————————————————— Plans for today [ ] Learning [ ]Assignment 1 (done before 10 a.m) [ ]Assignment 2 (submit before 11) [ ]... [ ] Shopping [ ]Item 1 [ ]Ietm 2 (PICTURE of Item2 added here) Make sure to come back at 5 p.m. (only set reminder at this event) ——————————————————— 3. The pictures can only be added at the top of the notes, making it impossible to record something with words and pictures in the notes. We sometimes take a photo of the powerpoint or add a screenshots in lecture notes, and then make some notes under the picture, but this cannot be done in Keep since the picture is on the top.
Just a small suggestion... 💫
by WinterStar_7 on 2019/11/20 19:12
I really like this app and I use it daily, mainly for writing/journaling since I want to feel secure that my data will always be in one place I could always access... and it’s all good, but I REALLY wish there was a way of highlighting sentences so I don’t have to scroll through a bunch of words and notes just to find what I’m looking for, or having to change apps to get that feature. Please, consider adding a highlighter in the near future. 💡 (Also, I personally think it’d be nice to be able to change fonts to bold, italic, underline or strikethrough. And also being able to lock the app and/or notes too. Just sayin’. 🤷🏻‍♀️)
Good integration with Google docs, collaborators
by menicosia on 2017/12/13 05:41
I like Keep more than Evernote because it has good integration with Google Docs (well, send to Docs) and you can add other collaborators easily. Some minor complaints: - I use a bluetooth keyboard to take notes. With the iPad in landscape mode, Keep only uses the top third of the screen, making room for an on-screen keyboard which is not present! I&#39;d love to make better use of my screen&#39;s real estate. - Once you&#39;ve sent an item to Google Docs, you can no longer edit it in Google Keep. I like Keep&#39;s lightweight editing UI, it would be nice if I could continue editing the text from this app, without having to switch over to the Google Docs editor. Or at least, remember a reference in Keep; sometimes I don&#39;t remember if I&#39;ve promoted a note to Google Docs, &#34;Why can&#39;t I find this note anymore? I could have sworn I&#39;d taken this down in Keep!&#34; - Can&#39;t add a collaborator for just one item in a task list. If I want to remind someone to do something, I need to create a new list and create a single to-do to add them as a collaborator.
Conceptually Great but Has Issues
by bsr_lwll on 2020/06/06 15:58
I have been using it for several years. As a secondary repository of my random notes. Most essential functionality was its standard cross-platform interface. However, the windows version became very slow and buggy at times. Eventually I stopped using. Recently I got a new machine, and check the app again on Chrome, perhaps there were updates and with the new high performing machine, I was hoping that it would do better job. Unfortunately, it was still slow and not very responsive. I have googled the issue and I could easily find many Windows 10 users describing quite similar issues. Otherwise, it was a good app for my designated uses.
Used to work but lacks support for issues
by Southern_Dude67 on 2021/05/24 22:15
Keep has been my go to app for a couple years. I even got others to use it. Now, I have to find another solution. I began having issues with the curser jumping around while taking notes, making lists, etc. Since there is no app support, I did what I normally do with an app that is malfunctioning - I delete it then download it again then restart my phone. After doing that I could no longer check off a checkbox once a task is complete &amp; when I try to delete checked items the app closes. I’ve tried many time to resolve the issue. The app support asks to “describe your issue” but really just goes to an unhelpful page on how to use checkboxes. I’ve sent feedback multiple times but apparently they don’t respond. I guess I’m done with the app now!
Update fixed nothing for my Chrome, iPad & iPhone
by Slow56 on 2018/10/19 13:37
The app worked great for about 2 months this summer. Then syncing stopped. And has only worked once that time about a month ago!! None of the recent updates have fixed anything for me! This app has great potential if it worked as promoted. The troubling shooting instruments would be helpful if the instructions matched what was being seen on the screens! Still have MAJOR syncing issues between Chrome, iPad &amp; iPhone!!!! I’ve never gotten a conflicting note ‘notification’ to select an updated vs outdated note. All devices at least ‘appear’ to be logged in to the same account, I only use it on one login. What does ‘offline’ mean when all devices have Internet access???? Please expand your troubling instructions ‘cause they ain’t work’n for me! I use this for work and can’t mess with this much longer.
Suggestion
by Baffled Teletubby on 2019/11/12 20:34
I think it would be nice and easier to keep notes if there were folders like iPhone Note. That is, when taking notes, for example, labels could be dropped into topical folders—perhaps sociological notes in the sociology folder. While true that the label &#34;sociology&#34; works fine as well, it is consumed by the Google Keep label list, and you have to scroll alphabetically to find it. It seems simpler to organise it topically, and, for me, it&#39;d get *so* much more use. For now, I can only use it to take notes in one field, and I&#39;m deliberating on finding something else instead with a similar feature (kinda like Bear).
Useful!
by AlixInWinterland on 2018/02/02 16:19
I&#39;ve only had this app for a couple days so I haven&#39;t been able to see to its full functionality but I think that so far, the app has its uses. I&#39;ve used many note and list apps, including onenote, evernote, wunderlist, and apple&#39;s native reminders and notes apps. This app combines the functionality of a note and a list into one app with a sticky note design, which is appealing for me. I haven&#39;t really done any syncing across devices so I haven&#39;t experienced any of those issues. Most of the updating I do will be via phone as I see it&#39;s most usefulness being as a mobile app when I can&#39;t reach a computer to jot something down. One thing that made me dock a star off though is that I have multiple Gmail accounts attached to my phone. Every time I open the app, it asks for which account to use (as the saves are done by account, which makes sense.) It would be nice to be able to set a default account, as I&#39;ve never had this kind of problem in the Gmail app and it&#39;s not like the number of accounts on that app is any different.
I think maybe you broke it…
by iAliceRyan on 2020/10/18 00:56
I’ve been using this fantastic app on my phone for years. I now have an iPhone and I’ve had the same phone for over two years. However in the last month, I’ve been having all kinds of problems with Keep. I have to exit the program every time I edit a list because the text overlays other text and it’s not aligned properly on the screen. It may be a different problem but I’m also having all kinds of problems with the Google app, which again I have used for years and loved. These are the only apps on my iPhone I’m having problems with and I’m wondering whether it’s Apple or Google that’s giving me a problem.
Lovely but a new frightening disappointing experience happened
by Vd using GK on 2019/12/31 00:36
I have loved its usefulness and user friendly note keeping since the beginning I started using it years ago, recently it’s the second time in this month that after some days (maybe about a week) using it offline the app stops working and doesn’t open, so all my notes and images that I had collected is lost cause no matter how I tried to open the app it doesn’t work. It’s a serious bug in my opinion and it needs a solution because it is a very good app but also my work is too important get lost so easily.
Great app!
by Emetmvas on 2020/11/04 15:36
I use this app everyday other than my apple notes app. You can’t really customize too much but you don’t need to. It’s great gift just taking quick notes on any device I use. I use macs and PCs for work so it’s really tough to find an app that’s useful for both. I love how quickly the notes or lists get updated on all my devices. This is a great app because I haven’t had any issues with it yet. All my notes and data are always saved. I don’t have any complaints about it. It would be cool to customize more with the font. I love this app though.
Superior thanks to simplicity, versatility and appearance
by LasseLus on 2018/09/21 12:50
I keep returning to Keep after numerous cases of having been seduced and ultimately left disappointed by more complex to-do apps, which I consistently find not being worth the sustained effort they require. Being a simple minded person, I need the intuitive simplicity of Keep. It can be bent to serve all sorts of purposes and, importantly, it displays them side by side rather than hiding them in drill-down hierarchies with excessive space between line items. My wish is for Google to let Keep retain its brilliant simplicity while allocating a bit more resources to its maintenance and refinement.
Great for School, could use some more customization
by Rmshdbveis on 2021/03/25 00:23
I really like this app, i’ve been using it every year of high school, and it works perfectly. The checklists make me have a clear view of what i need to get done, and the fact that i can pair up checklists with reminders is amazing! I would like some more customization and additions. I’d really like to see the following customization options: -More Colors (i like to label my classes with colors, and i have more classes than colors right now) -More Themes( Dark and Light are awesome, but being able to pick from more, or even creating your own, would be nice) -Nicer Ui (the current text and buttons is nice, but i’d like maybe a few different options) additions i would make: -iPhone Widgets(so that i don’t have to open the app to check stuff) -Swipe functionality (make it so that i can swipe left to see the left bar menu, swipe up to create a new note, swiping right takes you from notes to reminders)
Limited color choices and a bit buggy but overall a great app
by LoveMeSomeRedVines on 2019/06/30 17:28
The colors are a bit bright and the contrast of the black against them is jarring for my eyes. Would love to see more options for colored backgrounds. (This is not just a design option - it’s a functional feature bc it helps locate specific lists quickly when they are color coded.) The app can be buggy and sometimes it crashes when I am adding items. But it’s not all that frequent. Overall it’s an excellent tool to keep things organized. I recommend it to many people, especially teachers.
Easily best for link-based lists
by windrunner27 on 2020/02/02 20:56
I’m shopping for things across websites and making a decision with my dad, I can make a note and put all the links there and Keep makes the note have tidy little previews that are east to tap and evaluate a a glance. No more sharing a word document with long links, or with or tedious to make hyperlinks. It’s nice that iMessage allows you to just view the links shared in a conversation, but Keep is better for me since we will switch topics often, and want to exclusively view all my potential - for instance: motorcycles - in one place.
Customizable and Simple
by aberrantartist on 2019/10/19 13:54
I’ve been using this app since it launched around 2012 or 2013 and it’s been very helpful for me and easy to continue and customize for my needs. They’ve added some nice features along the way as well. One thing that would really take it to the next level for me is having a dark mode for drawings/written notes. Right now even if the app is in dark mode, if I open a drawing it will always be a white background. The Apple notes app has a dark background available so I’m sure it would be achievable by Google! I really hope this can be! 🙏🏻
Amazing but
by The hamster ninja on 2018/04/29 07:15
I love this app it’s easy to use and Aesthetically pleasing I like how everything is in a nice neat order but I would love if I had the ability to create files for different notes for example if I had one for math notes and another for homework I need to complete I know I can put labels on things it it still all shows up under “notes” I also think it would be great to have the option to bold things or change the font and color etc. Another thing is sometimes notes stop opening but I found if you open another note and click on it agin it works or if you archive it and undo it works but that’s a lot of work and I hope that bug could be fixed
I LOVE Google Keep
by kkapatos on 2019/01/17 05:17
A good way to keep track of stuff. Just go to the menu on your computer in google and select more and it will take you right to it. You can use it for work to create to do lists and set reminders that sync right to your calendar. you can also set up your inbox so that it is pulled up on your computer all of the time. You can also use it on the go which is what I use it for the shopping list feature. it is amazing and I can&#39;t say better things about an app like Google Keep.
Don’t Like the New Look
by TaRacey on 2018/12/02 13:11
They still haven’t updated the small font issue. So this app is useless to me. I really hope there is a way to get the old look back because I don’t like the new look. Since you have changed the font everything is much smaller now and harder for older eyes to see and read it. Please tell me there is a way to switch back to the old way. Update: Things are pretty much back to normal with latest update. Thank you! This app worked well until the current update. Now I can’t use it. Keeps telling me it needs to refresh and when I click the refresh button it crashes and when it finally opens about 80% of my content is missing. I seriously need to get to my notes. Please fix this! Update: The few lists I was left with after this recent update can’t be changed. I can’t move anything within the list and the app continues to insist that it needs to be refreshed and then crashes. Other important notes are gone and not showing up at all. Very disappointing. When you try to make things better for others, please don’t make things worse for the rest of us.
Great so far
by Madalenc on 2021/05/11 23:31
I see a lot of negative reviews, but to me this app has all I want, I’ve been paying for the last free years for Moleskine Actions and to me this seems to be performing just about the same way and is free and I can add collaborators to certain lists such a shopping list with my wife so we both know what needs to be bought and at the same time I can have private lists for myself. Will be using this regularly so whenever I find the flaws others seem to find I will update , but so far it seems great to me
A Keeper
by Sandy seashore on 2019/06/16 21:00
i’m kinda perplexed by some of the complaints from recent reviewers. i’m low tech though &amp; perhaps that’s to my advantage when it comes to this app because i’ve tried dozens like it over the course of my many years as an iphone haver &amp; this app changed the game for me. i’ve had it a year or more and it’s given me exactly zero issues. it’s convenient, colorful, functional, &amp; free. if i were you i’d download this sweet little widget wonder and if you don’t like it then delete it. i’m here to help &amp; you are all welcome 😉
First I generally love google keep
by GardenGoddess on 2019/01/12 22:06
My problem is that it wouldn’t sync and the new look. Got the can’t update try again later thing constantly. I couldn’t resolve it any other way. I updated it. Not getting message now but stuff added recently on another device still hasn’t shown up. On a very bad note, I hate how it looks now. The colors aren’t as bright. The font is smaller with no option to change. There is a shading thing going on now, definitely won’t be updating my other devices.
Trash
by Todd729 on 2021/10/24 23:24
Buggy. Idiosyncratic. Drawings don’t scroll without inexplicably zooming. Free movement of canvas/drawing area is limited. Not enough white space provided to do math problems without bumping against an immovable border. Document spontaneously closes when merely drawing a line from left to right with the stylus. Document reopens NOT at the level of the last edit but all the way at the very top, forcing endless scrolling just to get back to your work, at which point you draw a left-right line and it closes again. Typical poorly implemented, inconsiderate Google garbage. Time-wasting. Effort-wasting. Makes no sense. Designed by half-awake, out-of-touch engineers looking for a paycheck. Bad UI. Bad UX. Maybe good for you if you need a gimmicky one-trick pony with an absurdly narrow range of functionality.
Would prefer giving zero stars
by IrishCady on 2020/03/25 12:04
The latest update kept giving me annoying notifications to “resolve” my checked items in my To-Do list. I don’t want to resolve my checked items, I need them for reviewing a timeline history. I tried unchecking them, and all my recent unchecked items on top disappeared and I can’t retrieve them. Despite multiple notes besides my To Do list, this app is now worthless to me. If it loses my items and reminders, what’s the point? Oh, Google, are you following the tradition of Apple in creating/updating useless apps? The whole reason I don’t use Apple’s Reminders is because of what I just described above. My entries are always mysteriously dropped. Keep was reliable for awhile, and I see it just reached it’s end of life.
