Editors' Review

Google Keep for iOS enables you to take, store, and share notes using text, voice, and your phone's camera.


Instantly immersive: Google Keep for iOS immerses you in its ecosystem from the get-go. When you launch the app for the first time, you'll see instructions in note form. Tap each to learn more.

Two views: Tap the top right button and you'll be able to reconfigure your page from a vertical tile layout to a horizontal one.

Various types of notes: Tap Take a Note on the bottom left rail to create a written note. Tap the list button to the right to create a list. Tap the microphone button to dictate a note, which Keep saves as a recording and also transcribes. Tap the camera app to add a new picture or existing picture note. The app automatically saves your notes.

Reminders two ways: Tap Remind Me under your note to create reminders by time and date or by location. You can also set repeat reminders.

Collaborate with others: Within your note, tap the Add Person button to share your note with one person or several people.

Labels and colors: Within the note you can press the label button to label your note and the painter palette button to change the color. Both of these features make notes easier to locate.

Work across platforms: Access your notes from your desktop with the Google Keep Chrome extension, or copy them to Google Docs by pressing the Menu button within a Note and scrolling down to Copy to Google Docs.

Great search: Search and filter by words, photos, colors, and much more.

No text-grabbing from photos: Android users can benefit from Google Keep's text-grabbing feature, which pulls text from photos, so that you have it handy in note form. This also makes it easier to find a particular photo via keyword search. The iOS version, however, does not have this feature yet.

Bottom Line

Easy to use, feature rich, and cross platform, Google Keep for iOS is a keeper.
