Could be better 3/5
Overall, the app is pretty good. The layout is nice and I love the integration with other Google products.
But the lack of password protection for individual notes and no option to stylize the text (bold/underline/italic/size) makes it unusable for me.
Great App but... 5/5
By Michael_iPhone 5s
the latest version crashes when I try to open it on my iPhone 5s (iOS 8.4.1)
Bugs need fixing 1/5
As of 2/21/18 the following are bugs troubling my use of this app...
I’m using iphone 7+, latest ios update
When entering text on a note, I press button to shift keyboard to numbers, lot of times keyboard automatically shifts back to alpha. Sometimes keyboard automatically shifts back to alpha after entering one character from numeric keyboard. This happens a lot.
When text is cut and pasted in a note the app crashes or closes itself out returning me to phones home screen as soon as I activate paste.
If these are fixed, I will change my review and star rating back to 5
Great for to do lists and adding pictures 4/5
Pros: great for a daily to do list or notes to self. Adding pictures is clean and easy. Syncs well from my iPhone to my chrome book. Love the draw and grab text feature.
Cons: this version has an issue on iOS that causes the keyboard to glitch as I’m typing that makes it difficult to type. Hoping this gets fixed.
Overall, my favorite note taking app.
Great when it works... 1/5
But that doesn’t seem to be the case. I’m not able to type anything, the app tries to intermittently sync and jumbles the text.
Great app when it’s not convulsing 3/5
Can you please fix your app? The keyboard starts hiccuping while I type and it messes everything up. Thanks.
Crashes immediately on launch. 1/5
Even after I kill all apps and reboot my iPhone 6+ (iOS 8.1.3), google keep still crashes on launch. It used to work fine until the most recent update!
Great, but has some glitches 3/5
I am amending my 4 star review to 3 stars due to the glitches. The keyboard glitches out constantly and requires retyping. Also when editing labels the screen jumps up. I love this app, but it’s just gotten so glitchy (keyboard especially) that it’s become hard to use.
Super Useful 5/5
This is one of my main apps. I’m always looking to jot something down and never have either a piece of paper or pen, and if I do find something to write on/with I promptly leave my note/list at home. Now I just open Keep, jot down what I need to, and boom it’s available on all my devices (and I almost always have one of my devices, or computer, handy)!
Sigue fallando el teclado sl escribir notas
Como que no lo detecta bien al escribir(como si lo estuviera poniendo y quitando muy rápido) y complica la escritura de notas
Deberían poner opciones para editar letra(tamaños y colores) falta esto!!
También forma más rapida de agregar o quitar fotos junto con una herramienta para editarlas(recortar o dibujar sobre ellas)
Además pongan opción para regresar atrás en caso de eliminar alguna foto o texto por accidente, a veces es importante información y por error se llega a borrar y es molesto!(23 junio, 2017) todavía no lo ponen y en Android si está!!
Al fin lo pusieron (9 agosto 2017) muy bien!
Hay bug con el teclado, quiero escribir y tarda y complica el texto que quiero poner
Ayudaaa(15 febrero 2018)
Okay ya no hay falla con el teclado, pero pesa mucho la app, acabo de notarlo!!
Why, why did I just handover $19.99 for "Things3" -and I'm smart I tell ya. iWonder if the apple🍎 gods will do me a solid and toss m a refund . ..
Typing into app often delays several seconds and doesn’t pick up all typed letters. Shifting items on list often doesn’t work. These 2 issues make the app’s current version unusable.
Keyboard is buggy 2/5
I love Google Keep but have been experiencing issues with the keyboard bugging out on me while typing. I was using SwiftKey but now even the regular Keyboard keeps switching as I type which makes it hard to do so. Need to keep force closing but it happens almost every time now.
By Erik M Netz
I began Journaling 2 years ago with Google Keep. New article everyday. I actually messaged Google Keep on Android to bring it to Apple devices.
On iOS the keyboard jitters and it is hard to type.
I like this app, so I am hoping this gets fixed soon.
I love this app. 5/5
It’s so good and just what I need. It’s reminiscent of the wonderful Palm Pilot notes that I used way back in the day. Love that you can color code the notes. It’s so easy to use and move between devices.
Half the time i go to use it it doesn’t load notes correctly and it has never been easy to type on due to the lag. On an iphone 7+.
Font deficit 1/5
Great! Except it has some crummy font. Can't change font, style, or size. Is that too hard to add to a great note app? Deleted.
I don’t recommend App, Never!!! 1/5
I use the iPhone 6& ios 11.2.2.
This app has a long loading time and often crashes, shotdown. It takes a lot of patience and seems to have been made by a company other than google. I have to use it because of my data that was recorded long time ago.
I do not want to recommend it to others, Never!!!
Good but glitches 2/5
The part that’s driving me crazy and will make me stop using if not fixed soon is a keyboard glitch that messes up what I’m typing. I just updated yesterday hoping the update would bring a fix to this but it didn’t which was disappointing. Otherwise, love using this app, I was using a different list making app and I like the organization of this one better. It has more options than just checklists which is great.
Choppy choppy choppy 1/5
In longer checkbox lists Google Keep on iOS is unusable.
Scrolls are refreshing at about 1 frame per second.
I've been using since the app was brand new in Android years ago.
Switched back to iPhone I'm forced to not keep Keep.
Not Evernote 2/5
I tried using Google Keep in place of Evernote but it lacks way too many features such as no embedded pictures or text highlighting.
It has a few quirks when opening on different devices as well. Hopefully google will add these features in the future.
By Magic Kyle
Needs significant improvement 1/5
Way too laggy and takes away from productivity.
Was awesome but now buggy 2/5
I used to love Google Keep but since the new iOS update it’s nearly impossible to write a simple note. There seems to be a bug where the keyboard will randomly disappear in the middle of typing or just miss a keystroke all together. This happens too frequently for the app to even be usable. I hope google fixes this soon :(
Life Game Changer ❤️❤️ 5/5
If I could only have one app on my phone, this would be it! It enables my husband and me to manage our large family...we use it to keep track of shopping lists, takeout orders, kid’s clothing sizes, birthday/holiday gifts, party planning, notes for doctor appointments..its functionality is endless.
Favorite app but buggy 3/5
I use this app for everything. I would love it if it had an Apple Watch app. When I try moving items around on the list, it hangs or crashes. Very frustrating. I would love to see this app become more stable.
Priority sort and undo needed and save modes 4/5
This is such an awesome app. It’s synced to my devises and desktop. Simple to use and easy to view. I can see all my important notes upfront.
Wish they had a undo feature. When editing on my phone, if I accidentally delete or make an error, there’s no way to recover my data. Same problem on Apple notes where Ive lost things.
Keyboard keeps going crazy 1/5
When I try to type in lists, the keyboard keeps trying to switch modes to the next keyboard. Basically, really glitchy.
Favorite Note App Ever 5/5
By Maggie CT
I have tried so many note apps but none of them are clean or simple enough to make me happy. If they are they are full of add. I’m super particular because I really prefer to write all my notes by hand. But this app is legitimately the best I’ve tried. I can make hand written notes, grocery lists, photos with notes and color code it all. You can use bullet journal rules to organize it.
The checklist feature is my favorite. When you check something off it is pushed to the bottom and crossed out. Then you can un check it and put it back on your list. Meaning you don’t have to make a new grocery or chore list every time and can use your old list as reference
Love it 4/5
Great app and I love that it connects to my phone and MacBook! But can we turn off the account selector every time it gets opened? It’s nice to open it and immediately be able to take a note.
All good until most recent update... 1/5
Google keep was, for the most part, working fine until this most recent update. Now, when I open the app, it immediately goes to the “MANAGE” screen. I can close out of it only to have it pop up again, and again, and again…
So, I give this a one star rating for now as it is a totally useless app due to this “MANAGE” screen constantly popping up.
Technical stuff: I am on an iPhone 7 running the latest iOS as of this day. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app, to no effect. I have submitted in writing this issue using the support function for this app in the App Store. I have received no response as of this writing…
Was great... not now 1/5
Since the last bug fixes, it hangs after a few minutes. The only fix seems to be to uninstall and reinstall.
Needs security feature. Pin lock, password, face id, etc 3/5
By King Jay Aziz
Needs some type of security feature on it such pin or face id, etc.
Generally I love it 2/5
But lately it makes me log in every time I enter the app! Unless I add another account then it should make me log in every time. This is a flaw and annoying. Please fix.
Solid but deficient voice recorder 3/5
Asking you to verify your account is a time waster. This is a recent problem.
Overall great and recommendable, but the voice recorder is almost unusable. The voice recorder stops automatically instead of letting you stop it when you're done. The automatic stops are almost always before you're done.
Please fix this bug 3/5
When i open the the app when it completely closed , the app requires to choose your account arbitrary
Keeps asking me to sign in every time I open the app 4/5
Keeps asking me to sign in every time I open the app
Requests sign in 1/5
Since the last update, it makes me sign in with Gmail account every time I open. It seems the latest update has caused this bug and the app does not remember the Gmail information. Using iPhone 6S, iOS 11.2.5
Does not sync. Reminders do not work 1/5
By Mojo Workin
Used to work great. Tried logging in and it clearing browser cache, ...
I use chrome extension on Mac, keeper and widget on iPhone
A Step Backwards 2/5
It just started asking me to select an account EVERY time I start it up. I don’t like that at all. Gmail doesn’t do that, Drive doesn’t do that, and none of the other great Google apps I use don’t do that; why Keep???
I just wish I could still use “OK Google” to add items to Google Keep lists like I used to. (Sigh)
Last update - annoying bug 1/5
Since the last update, the app keeps asking me which Google account to show notes for even though I did not switched to a different account myself
January update broke login 2/5
This app had worked well until the last update. Now everytime it opens it first asks to choose a specific Google account. I have only one so this is completely unnecessary.
Please stop making me login every time! 3/5
Getting asked to pick an account every time I open the app is extremely annoying and counter productive. Let us choose once and be done!
What did they do??? 1/5
Every single time I open the app now I have to re-select my google account! What kinda update is that?
Walk, crawl, crash 1/5
By money faucet
This app crashes about 50% of the time on my 6S. It's a f'in joke. When it does manage to run it does so crawling line by line as it auto-corrects, looks up on Amazon and calls your grandma with every letter you type, trying to predict what you're going to write and preventing you from getting there altogether. Then it'll freeze. Then it'll crash.
But hey its "free"
Handy and simple 4/5
By Major McNeil
Sometimes you need a simple and quick way of taking a note or setting a reminder. This is a great app.
This has always been my best note app. I promise I’ll give 5 stars if I can fix this. On iPhone every single time I open it it asked me to manage the account I want to use. I have only one account but it’s getting so boring every time to put the account info every single time I open it. Pls somebody help me with this. Thank you
I really loved this list-making app until a recent update. Since then, every time I open the app, I am asked to pick a gmail account. I only have one, so having to select it every time is becoming quite annoying.
Keeps asking to choose account with recent update! 1/5
With the latest update in Jan 18, whenever I open the app it asks everytime to choose google account though I'am already signed in with my gmail. Do not know why it started happening now. Otherwise very good and productive app no complaints at all.
