App of the Week: Google Keep


When it comes to note-taking, many would suggest that the field belongs to the likes of Evernote, but there are other tools out there that are worth a look, including Google's entry, Google Keep.

Google Keep

The fact that it synchs with Google Drive so that your notes, voice memos, photos, lists, to-do's and other ephemera are available on all your devices is one of Keep's strengths, but it's not the only one. The colorful tile interface is actually a sorting and prioritizing tool; it automatically transcribes voice notes; and lets you swipe unneeded notes into archives. And the feature that can turn a note into a checklist by adding checkboxes is bound to make accountants feel right at home. All in all, it's a strong app for quick note-taking.

On the downside? It's Android-only, so iPad and iPhone users are out of luck. And you need to feel confident that Google won't kill it, as they famously did with Google Reader.
