Editors' Review

Google Keep for Android is an easy-to-use note-taking app that gives you quick access to all your notes, lists, drawings, and voice recordings across Android and iOS devices and Web browsers.

Pros

Create and edit notes: Google Keep lets you create notes and lists that include a title, either take or add an image, and include checkboxes. The app does a nice job of displaying your notes on your phone's screen in either a single-column or multi-column view. To edit a note or mark something off a list, just tap the note.

Access Keep across platforms: Along with the Android version, Keep is available on iOS, through a webpage, and as a Chrome extension that lets you save web content to Keep.

Notes can be more than text: You can add photos or voice recording (or dictate a note), capture Web content, and create a drawing using Keep's drawing tools, which include a pen, marker, highlighter, and eraser. Change the size and color of a drawing tool by double-tapping it.

Create labels, change note colors, and set reminders: Add labels to your notes to group your ideas, and assign colors to visually organize notes. You can also create reminders for notes based on time and location, so that Keep will show your reminder when you are near that location.

Search and share: Search your notes, filter the results, and share notes with others to collaborate on. You can also send a note to a Google Docs app and then use the note in a document or presentation.

Cons

Can get a bit disorderly: If you keep just a handful of notes, Keep does a nice job of displaying them. But lots of note cards can start to feel overwhelming. Evernote addresses note overload by letting you organize your notes into notebooks.

Bottom Line

If you are looking for an easy way to keep notes and lists, Google's Keep app for Android is up to the task. While it lacks some of the powerful organizational tools found in other note-taking apps, it is perfect for recording your thoughts.
