November 30, 2016

Google Keep is a note-taking app (like an electronic version of sticky notes) that was developed by Google (in 2013) that is available as an Android and iOS app; AND, also available on the web.

Evernote and Google Keep Made Some Nice Upgrades This Past Week

April 25, 2016

… and, MORE GREAT GEEK SQUEAK STUFF (#2016-017)

Evernote and Google Keep are my two main note keeping applications. Evernote is for the important stuff and Google Keep is for the unimportant stuff.  Both are cloud based and are available on numerous platforms.

This past week Evernote made some noticeable improvements that made navigation of the sidebar more intuitive, searches are now more refined, and notebooks (and tags) can be color coded.  Read more about the changes to Evernote by CLICKING HERE.

The most noticeable improvement this past week to Google Keep is the NEW Google Keep Chrome extension that gives you the ability to save web pages, images and selected text with ease. To take a look at the Google Keep Chrome extension, CLICK HERE .

Both of these applications are especially helpful in keeping track of the things in our life; whether important and/or unimportant.

Google Keep – Keeps Getting Better

March 31, 2015

Recently I posted an article [click here], that gave you some insight about Google Keep and how it has become one of my favorite apps. If you do not know about Google Keep I encourage you to read the article. Google Keep has become a very popular note keeping app that is available on the web (in your browser) and as an app on your mobile devices.

Google Keep

This past week Google added two NEW features to Google Keep. The one feature, that was definitely on my wish list, is that you now have the ability to add labels to your notes. This is a very powerful feature that gives you the ability to organize and categorize your notes. The second NEW feature is the recurring reminders where you can configure notes to repeatedly remind you of matters so that you never miss a beat.

As the title of this blog post suggest, “Google Keep – Keeps Getting Better”… I can’t wait to see what Google has up their sleeve in the future for this very popular and useful application.

To help get you started, Google Keep for the Google Chrome Browser is available [here] and Google Keep for the Android tablet and smartphone platforms is available [here] …

Quick Note – The Brain Fart Class Of Note Keeping

October 13, 2014

In the heavyweight class of note keeping apps, we have Evernote and OneNote that are exceptional in that they can perform a higher level of note keeping that are best suited when researching something or we want to store something of importance (for future reference).

In the lightweight class of note keeping we have Google Keep, that is exceptional in that you can keep notes in a manner for which we keep sticky notes (for grocery lists, to do lists, reminders, etc…), that are at a lower level of importance, but we feel necessary in order for us to exist.

Each of these heavy weight and light weight apps can be quickly accessed from all of our computing platforms (such as the Windows and the Android platforms); but, did you know that there is another class of note keeping called the “brain fart” class of notekeeping?

The brain fart a class of notekeeping is where you need to make notes quickly (on the fly), as they come to mind and are only around for the short term. This is the class of note keeping where another note keeping app called Quick Note comes into the picture.  Quick Note is like having a piece of paper and pencil with you at all times; and, in appearance, Quick Note looks just like the canary yellow ruled line notepads that we all have used at one time or another.

Quick Note

Quick Note is installed as a Google Chrome App that you can make a shortcut to so that your Quick Note notepad is easily and quickly accessible at all times. To use Quick Note you need to sign up for a diigo.com account so that you never lose your notes, as they are then synchronized (and stored) to your diigo.com account.

Quick Note is especially designed for lightweight note-taking. You can use it as a simple notepad,  scratchpad, clipboard, or to record todo lists. 

★ Quick to add and edit ~ Add note in the app or from right-click menu

★ Quick to search ~ Instant search for all notes

★ Quick to access ~ One-click to access your notes

★ Sync to cloud and access your notes anywhere


Google Keep Has Become One Of My Favorite Apps

September 27, 2014

If you are familiar with sticky notes, then you need to take a look at Google Keep. Google Keep is Google’s electronic version of sticky notes. With Google Keep you can create notes quickly and easily; AND, since it is a Google Application you can sync your notes using your Google account. This means you can get to your notes from virtually anywhere (i.e. Android Phone, Android Tablet, Android Wearable, and through the Google Chrome Web App on the internet).

I have thoroughly tested (and used) Google Keep since its’ inception; making it one of my favorite applications.

Google Keep

Initially when Google released Google Keep there was a lot of hype comparing it to the popular notekeeping app called Evernote. To me this was a inaccurate comparison. Evernote is at the more comprehensive level of note keeping, whereas Google Keep is at the  basic level of note keeping (such as grocery lists, check lists, products you want to remember, and the list goes on and on). The more I use Google Keep, the more I love it.

To get you started, Google Keep for the Google Chrome Browser is available [here] and Google Keep for the Android tablet and smartphone platforms is available [here]

Features:

Notes & lists in Google Keep – You can create notes on the go with Google Keep on your Android phone or tablet, on your Android wearable, and on your browser. You can pick colorful notes, make a check list, insert a picture and can create an archive to keep old notes

Reminders in Google Keep – You can add time and location reminders to new and existing notes in Google Keep.

Search & sync in Google Keep – Your notes are automatically synced to Google so you can view them on other devices and the web.

Jot Down Your Notes With the NEW Google Keep

March 21, 2013

Yesterday I came across something that is NEW with Google called Google Keep that just may end up rivaling the likes of Evernote and SpringPad.

Google Keep is a NEW online note keeping service that works in connection with your Google Drive. If you have a Google account, such as Gmail, then your account will give you access to the other Google services such as Google Drive; and now, Google Keep. Google Keep is web based, so you can access it from any internet enabled computer  or device (click here for an example) or you can install the Android version of Google Keep to your Android based phone or tablet (click here for more on this).

From what I am seeing right now, Google Keep is in the very early stages and actually I am not seeing where it is connecting to my Google Drive (yet).  The actual notes are very basic (right now) with no rich text formatting; however, you can add images.

Will this be a competitor to Evernote and Springpad?  Time will only tell whether more features will be added, etc… in order to bring Google Keep up to the speed with Evernote or Springpad. I just thought it to be interesting, that Google is making a service such as this, available.

The biggest concern I have is that Google comes up with these great ideas, then couple years down the road decides to kill them (i.e. Google Notebook, iGoogle, and Google Reader). Personally, I thought Google Notebook was ahead of its’ time and was an excellent service.
