Google Keep has three types of notes: list note, picture note and photo note. Note-list is a checklist, after creating it, the user can mark the tasks or tasks that have been solved in the list. With Sketch Notes the user has an option to sketch an idea in an editor. In the photo note you can add a photo or image and write a description to them.

Notes in Google Keep have a title and a body, where the main information is entered. In addition, you can attach an image to your notes, change the background color, add co-authors and add tags, by which you will be able to find the necessary note in the future. Notes are placed in a separate tab, Google Keep allows you to fix the actual note at the top of the page, unnecessary and irrelevant notes can be, like in Gmail, removed to the archive or to the trash.

Task list



Great for the note-taking


sync notes from different devices


sometimes freezes

is very convenient: I often write something about working on the phone in notes. then you don’t have to search for anything for a long time, I just go under my own account from the computer to the web version. saves time and is not afraid of losing something. already on the second phone I only use it for notes!

Google Keep is always at hand!


  • Available from all my devices
  • Intuitive and Easy to use
  • Different kinds of notes
  • Ability to share notes with other Gmail users
  • Shortcuts available


I don’t see any minuses

Google Keep is almost always open in my browser and I use it every day along with Gmail, Google Docs, Google Drive.

I love Google Keep for its simplicity and versatility. It suits me both for moments when an idea comes to mind and I need to write it down very quickly, To-Do-lists and for longer notes, when I need to formulate a thought, but this task does not "pull" create a separate document for her in Google Docs ...

I would say that there are a number of moments / situations when you need something to be "at hand" online, where you can quickly throw operational information and Google Keep is perfect for such situations.

Simple and convenient




Synchronization with Google Mail

Due to its simplicity, it is very easy to use. Synchronizes with other Google services, so you don’t need to switch from program to program to watch something. The note is always in front of your eyes and the workplace is not pasted over with thousands of pieces of paper with reminders and other necessary information

Google keep


A handy tool for writing. 

It already depends on your outlook: you write down your thoughts, reasoning, spending here (and there is such a thing). 

So to say: "I remembered - I wrote it down." A note is a note, there is nothing to add here. Although ...


What are the disadvantages here? 

They are missing and that’s good.

Although .. Well, maybe: change the color of the notes. But this is not a minus, but a suggestion

It performs its functionality at 100.

Judge for yourself: wrote down - saved - archived - if necessary, moved to another section.

Synchronization with a google account is, what else do you need to be happy? A car! And no, it’s not here to write.

Minimalistic notebook


Conveniently create notes, lists, reminders. It is convenient to sort by tags, there is a powerful search system. There is a mobile client for Android. 


You cannot create notes and lists for sharing from different accounts.

I use it as a notebook. I create to-do lists, shopping lists. I use it as a reminder instead of a calendar.
