Easy to use, great tool!

Google Keep is a great tool that our entire office uses! It can be used for note taking during an important meeting, collaboration or even just quick access to responses for our customers. One of the best pieces of this for our company is the collaboration aspect. If I am in a meeting and writing notes in my Google Keep note, I can share that note with my team member and we can both edit the note in real time.
  • It's incredibly quick to load, it doesn't take long to pull up any note you have no matter how much information is in the note.
  • The ability to collaborate on a Google Keep note is also great! It allows for two or more of you to work on a project in one space.
  • I also love that I can color coordinate. I can make all my meeting notes one color, my personal notes another color and so on.
  • Enjoying the pinning feature that allows me to keep my important notes right at the top so I don't have to go searching for them when needed.
  • I wish that I was able to format within the note. There are times in which I would want to bold, underline or italicize and I'm not able to do so.
  • There is a character limit in the note. And though it is a generous amount of characters that you can add in the note, I tend to reach that character limit often.
  • I would love the ability to adjust the size of the notes. If you write a lot in the note, it makes it super long, but if you write just enough it will make it smaller and you can then open it up to reveal the note.
As a Customer Experience Trainer, I recommend that all the new members utilize Google Keep for better organization. It also helps with productivity, as our team members are able to write common responses that they may use for common situations. This allows them to easily copy and paste it into their email or live response instead of typing the same response over and over again. Though this tool is great for collaboration, I wouldn't recommend using it for larger projects. In that case, I would recommend Google Docs.

Swiss army knife for notes

I make a more personal use of Google Keep, I use it as my notepad on my phone. It's great for taking quick, organized notes on cards. Works great for meetings, jotting down ideas, and even starting long texts and moving to a appropriate app later. Google Keep is a Swiss Army knife for text.
  • Check boxes.
  • Notes.
  • Cards.
  • Collaboration.
  • Revision history.
  • Find word (CTRL+F).
  • Cards color customizations.
  • Simple text edition.
Quick notes, one click, and you're already writing. It can be used as post-it on the mobile screen, for example, through its widgets. This is great for daily notes, especially if combined with check boxes.

Although it is good to start a text that is expected to be long, it is not ideal for editing texts and writing articles for example.

Google Keep Helps Forget Wunderlist or Evernote Even Exist.

Google Keep has been used exclusively by myself. I started using the software as I have other Google products and decided to test it out. It has great functionality for simple check box notes, general text notes, etc. It also has a great voice to text transcription service that utilizes Google Assistants speech recognition which is effortlessly top notch.
  • Check box style checklists.
  • General notes keeping app.
  • The text box check list style notes only allow one indent and it would be useful to allow at least 1 more indent(2 total).
  • More robust font changes.
If someone is looking for a note taking app, this is easily the best to use. It has simple check box notes, general text notes, voice to text transcription, and you can even draw on your screen and save hand drawn notes. It is amazingly simple yet has many powerful features that suite most users needs.

Keep Everything Just Where You Need It

Since Google Keep is a cloud-based task and note keeper, we're able to keep track of all to-do tasks on any device that has an internet access. Additionally, we are able to share to-do lists between users via the collaborator option. This platform greatly help us stay on track with the tasks we need to complete.
  • Quick note taking during conferences or meetings.
  • Notes are easily shareable.
  • Video recording, even if just a minute or less would be great.
  • Folders for organization. There are labels already, but it doesn't separate them out from the main "feed."
Google Keep is great for keeping tracking of notes, tasks, and reminders. However, it's not so great at formatting and long form notes. You might be better off using a word processor software if you're looking to do the latter.

Google Keep - Live tiles make for a pleasing note taking experience

I use Google Keep on a personal level to assist with my tasks for work. Asana is the primary tool used within my scope of work, but Google Keep helps me stay on task and make notes where other apps are too bulky. I find Keep to be the best solution for me vs. other note-taking apps (Simplenote, etc.). It's a live tile interface, and ease of use makes it quick and easy to use and see exactly what I need to whenever I open it.
  • User Interface
  • Live Tiles
  • Lacks a desktop app
  • Lacks app integration
  • I find Google Keep is the best app to take simple notes in. Live tiles make it a far more pleasing visual experience, while also allowing a user to quickly see precisely what they've written down without opening each note. The clean and straightforward interface makes it very easy to pick up and use, then put away without fumbling around unnecessary features. Reminders and labels and colors keep things organized.
  • If a user needs harder deadlines within an app, while Keep does have reminders, it has no app integration with google calendar to allow for that functionality to be too useful.

For a Post-It Feeling, Use Google Keep

Score 10 out of 10

I use Google Keep as a electronic post-it note. Since I use Google Mail as my email client and Google Docs and Sheets as my word processor and spreadsheet, Google products are very integrated with how I manage my business. The fact I can have Google Keep appear to the right of my email means I can add and retrieve notes quickly.
  • I can make lists.
  • Simple to use.
  • No text formatting.
  • Maybe too simple for those coming from Evernote or OneNote.
I have a hard time focusing on projects because I always have so much to do in a day. I make lists in Google Keep which has a checkbox feature that crosses the item and moves it to the bottom of the list when you check it off. However, one thing I use to do with Evernote is take notes on a project and email them to the client. I can't do that directly from Google Keep, but since it integrates with Google Docs I can copy the note to a new document and share it that way.

Google Keep = Efficiency

Score 10 out of 10

Google Keep has many uses for a fit expert. You can save passwords and emails, customer notes, or templates for frequent use. It is a time saver and great organization tool.
  • Easy to organize and color coordinate.
  • Allows for an associated image to be connected with the note.
  • Alarms set for reminders.
  • Ability to add others to the note to share and collaborate.
  • There should be an option to align them straight rather than unevenly.
  • Front options would be beneficial.
  • More color options for a variety of sorting.
In customer service, you send a lot of similar emails so it is great to use as a clipboard, so you can copy and paste that same email whenever need be, rather than typing it all out again and again.

Not so great when needing to put data from another platform.

Google Keep - more than just note taking

Score 9 out of 10
Vetted Review

Optional, free software that majority of our company uses. It's used for quick, one-off note taking for stand-up meetings, client meetings, etc. Can be very useful if you need to write something down in a pinch. With everything being saved automatically to the Google cloud it's very convenient for the quick and dirty note taking. The collaboration feature is the cherry on top that proves to be very useful. Also, big shout out to the "check mark" feature that essentially makes this a "to-do" application.
  • Collaboration.
  • Just enough "extra" features to make it not too complicated.
  • Simplicity.
  • Not easy to change text/font if you aren't savvy with the product.
Great for small to large businesses - really any business where you need to take notes or remember something. It helps keep you organized if you need it but can also serve as a to-do check list for you, your team, or both.

Google Keep is used on an individual basis to share meeting notes. Multiple people can make simultaneous updates. Very easy to use, i.e., user-friendly tool.
  • Simple to use
  • Easy to maintain
  • More formatting options
  • Better user interface would help
Great for making a checklist.
Excellent to way display what got done and what not from checklist.
Google keep is excellent for sharing small notes and not for large content.
