There are many to-do list and note-taking apps out there that you can use, and each tries to draw your attention with new features and functionalities.
Even though it comes by default on Android smartphones, Google Keep is one of the best you could hope for. Especially since Google has upgraded it with a new smart organizational feature that allows a very intelligent categorization of your notes.
For heavy users of note-taking apps, searching for that one marzipan cake recipe can be a hassle, but this is where the new option comes in handy, allowing users to browse through their notes by topic.
Books, food, travel – all these topic shortcuts can be accessed in the app’s search bar. Google Keep, which is also available on the web, offers other features, such as label and color organization tools, list support, voice memos, note reminders based on time or location, and collaborative note-taking.
The new feature is especially useful for people who didn’t bother to slap labels on their notes when they created them initially. Even though Google hasn’t exactly explained how the tool works, it most likely has something to do with Keep taking cues from the words you used in your notes.
Writing down “expenses for the Paris trip” will automatically associate that entry with the travel category. It’s a useful way of keeping your to-do lists organized even when you’re too lazy to it yourself.
It’s a competitive business and companies cannot afford to fall behind or out of the users’ graces by not including the latest features and technologies.
The update for Google Keep follows closely after Evernote (the competition) increased its prices for paid plans. It also announced the Basic plan – which remains free of charge – will be limited to two devices per account holder.
The new Google Keep feature has already been rolled out on Android and iOS. Make sure your smartphone’s app is up to date to benefit from it.
However, if you’re not happy with Keep and what it has to offer, you can move over to the native iOS Notes app anytime – and you can take your Evernotes with you, too. Click here to find out how.
