‘Google Keep’ is a special web program launched recently by Google for creating, storing, and synchronizing notes. Being a product from one of the most reliable cloud services, it comes with immense potential. Though it has certain limitations at present, you can still expect a lot from it, such as creating different documents, managing loads of images, exchanging a few words with your contacts through emails, voice, and video, etc. And all these can be availed at no cost.
Basic Attributes of Google Keep
For now, Google keep is accessible only on Android devices. You cannot enjoy its benefits on iPhones, iPads or regular desktop computers. The unique web application is still at the nascent stage. It can majorly be used for the purpose of taking notes which is facilitated by its good search functionality. The design philosophy of the computer program is much more similar to that of ‘Spartan’, the well-accepted design interface of Google. Those who prefer clean and simple designs would love the white or light grey space included in the rectangular note.
The app offers two types of displays: ‘list view’ and ‘grid view’. You can simply toggle between them for altering the outline of the previews as well as making the checkboxes present in the previews visible in to-do notes. Unlike other available note-taking web programs, it comes with only one instruction ‘Type note’ which is found on the top, and you can just start typing for taking your important notes.
Google Keep allows users to add images to the notes. Creating a note by voice is also possible in it. You can even say ‘Note to self’, and store this reminder into the program. There, it synchronizes with various other objects associated with your Google account, and becomes available online. However, the web application is not equipped with features like ‘notebook’ or ‘tag’.
Beneficial Features of Google Keep
Apart from the aforementioned basic attributes, there are several other beneficial features of Google Keep too. ‘Archiving’ is one of the greatest traits offered by ‘Keep’ which you can take the advantage of. Instead of sending your old notes to the trash, just archive it and find it anytime anywhere with the help of the search bar present at the top.
The ‘colour-coding’ feature of ‘Keep’ would also make you happy if you are fond of creating and saving coloured notes. If you wish to add your favourite colour to a certain note, you need to modify the colour option and save it accordingly.
However, Google Keep is yet to be developed completely. Some features that developers need to consider for making its next version even better are image editing tools, font options, tags, notebooks, sharing options, and so on. Otherwise it is a good option for taking notes, and you should definitely give it a try.
