Fortunately, Assistant voice commands for taking notes, creating lists, and adding items to existing ones now work with Any.do, AnyList, Bring!, and Google Keep. This integration sees information you enter verbally on phones, smart displays, and speakers be stored in your app of choice.
A nice side effect of moving a Keep note to Google Docs is that it makes the note easier to move to another platform. Once it’s saved as a Google Doc, you can export it as a Microsoft Word doc, a PDF, or even an ePUB. I’ve also found some situations where I wanted to de-clutter Google Keep, but I did not want to delete my potentially important note. In these cases, I will copy it to Google Docs and then delete the note on Google Keep.
Google’s note-keeping app, called “Google Keep”, just “keeps” getting better… This is by far one of my favorite, most used, apps on my devices…
According to the Android Police, “Google Keep is getting a small update today on both Android and the web, but it’s an important one if you use hand-drawing notes a lot. From now on, you won’t be constrained to a single screen for your drawing — instead, Keep will add more space at the bottom of the note so you can keep going. The first time you get to the bottom of the screen while drawing, you’ll see a pop-up explaining that more space has been added.”
Google Keep is Google’s cross-platform note keeping app that is an electronic version of sticky notes. If you don’t use Google Keep, you are missing out on a great application. It is one of the most used apps on my computer and smartphone.
One feature I personally use (especially on my smartphone) is the reminder feature built into Google Keep. After I create a note and set the reminder (see steps below), the reminder will pop up in the notification section of my phone when the reminder comes due. I have a note called “Reminders” that I have configured to pop up every day at 8AM to jostle me in completing various tasks.
You can set a reminder from your phone (Android and iOS), but the easiest way is from your computer.
How To set up reminders for your notes:
Go to keep.google.com.
Click a note.
At the bottom left, click Remind me Remind me.
You can set reminders to go off at a certain time or place:
Time reminder: Click one of the default times, or click Pick a date & time Pick a date and time. You can also set the reminder to repeat.
Location reminder: Click Pick place Pick a place. Then enter the name or address and click Done Done. You’ll need to let Keep access your location.
To close your note, click Done or click outside the note.
To change your reminder, click the reminder time or place at the bottom of the note.
Tip: To delete a reminder, in the bottom right, click Delete reminder Delete reminder.
View upcoming reminders:
Go to keep.google.com or open the Keep app.
At the top left of Keep, tap or click Menu Menu > Reminders.
You’ll see all notes with upcoming reminders.
Change default reminder times
You can change the pre-set reminder times for morning, afternoon, and evening. Learn how to change your default reminder times.
You do need a Google account in order to use Google Keep. As I indicated, Google Keep is a cross platform application and will run from your computer, Android smartphone and iOS smarphone. Once installed on your computer and other devices, the notes are kept in sync.

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 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.
