Google Keep

Get a quick introduction to Google's note, list and voice memo app

Google Keep has been available for some time now, and is even a default app on new devices since its introduction. Even so, not many of us take advantage of its potential as a note, list, voice memo and general brain dump kind of app. Taking to our "Ambassador Guides, Tips and How-To's" forum, forums ambassador Golfdriver97 has written up a nice introduction to the service.

With step-by-step picture tutorials, you can get a quick introduction to the basic features of Keep that could get you to start considering this service. Take a look at the forums post at the link below.

Fuck off

Calm DA fuck down. He just said "This". So how 'bout you fuck off

Well, typing 'this' in response to a comment is getting old and isn't as cool as some think it is.

drokssilva says:

Well, I agree with that. But, saying fuck off because of it is a bit drastic, no?

I agree, it is a bit overused and childish...

Me, too. Evernote is a lot more powerful, but it includes a lot of features that I don't really need or want. Keep is nice and simple, and the system-level integration is really handy.

I use Keep all the time for my business and personal life. It's very helpful and love how I can put it into one device and automatically syncs to another.

Hey I have a Nexus 4 and just noticed the AOSP browser is there. Without warning or anything. Anyone else notice this? Thought they removed it way back when.

The price of tea has really gone up lately, anyone else notice?

What do you mean, try and keep your comments on topic? I thought this was about things I dislike. Nexus 4, rising tea prices...

If there was only a place to go where you could ask questions about certain devices and other things, a forum or something where people exchange information. It would be better than AN ARTICLE THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH YOUR QUESTIONS.

You might get more help there...

They were dicks about it, but they're right. If you have that kind of question, head to the forums.

NoNexus says:

Meh I could been worse. Mostly bored.

I apologize oh kind sir for my inexcusable behavior. I will run out and trade my note 3 for a Nexus 4 so that i can look up your answer

I never thought about syncing keep with my wife's phone to have to do list and grocery list synced with each other... Very good idea!! Thanks for the tip...
Is there a way to sync only 1 note/list?

Posted via Android Central App

Don't want THE list synced, eh? ;)

icu says:

Nice little guide. I Keep meaning to Keep using Keep ... I do use it to store misc. information and to save things now and then, but it's not really something I go to all the time.

There are 3 minor features which I'd love to see happen 1) Allow me to "pin" notes to the top (i.e. I'd use this as my ToDo list if I could keep it up top) 2) 2-column option for the widget and option for individual notes/list in a customizable widget and 3) Text size/style choices.

But, you can drag and drop the notes anywhere you want..

Love Keep! Since its introduction I have pretty much given up on Evernote.
