No font size adjustment. 3/5
Love this app for its cross platform compatibility and syncing. However, no way to increase font size so will have to look for other options. Just too small to read for some of us.
Freeze on no connection 3/5
The app freezes on my phone when there's no connection. I'm not sure if that could be fixed? Thx.
It’s the worst memo app. 1/5
It’s the worst memo app.
Doesn’t sync my data 2/5
I don’t have time to figure out doesn’t work. True. I like the app itself for checklists but doesn’t sync across platforms and I can’t deal because I jump devices all day long for various reasons. So my quest for a checklist app continues
It's okay overall, but... 3/5
By chicken punk
- would be cool to have folders for organizing
- check list unside a simple text note
- not so bright colors, more soft, pastel
I wrote it in case the developer teem is reading reviews 🤷🏻♂️
Just icredible ! 5/5
This is a master example for a brilliant java made app(for a WORA app)! Congrats google , as always this is a simple smooth and well programmed, not just adequate , this is absolute ideal and ready to be a serious evernote alternative in future maybe !👍🏼
The good and the bad 4/5
It looks like they have fixed the default account problem listed below. I added a star as a result. If someone at Google is reading these reviews – thank you! Now please commit to real release notes listing the fixes and changes of each release instead of the generic, “Bug fixes and performance improvements.” The good news is it appears they are looking to continue to improve the product instead of letting it die like some other Google products.
As a teacher I love Google Keep for keeping track of things I see or read to clip and save for later. Whether it’s a site that might be useful to my students or an image for a future lesson, I can easily Keep things and even sort them by topics. So far so good, but there’s one “feature” that has killed me over and over. When I choose to Keep something I have to manually select the Google account I want to use even though I only use Keep with one account. There is no way to even set a default account to be used for new notes. There is no way to disable Keep for an account. As a result, every time I Keep something I have to first choose the correct account before I can submit it. It takes what should be a very quick process and turns it into a multi step process. Things sometimes get put under the incorrect account when I’m in a hurry and then I have to go find a note that’s missing. Losing things in an app designed to keep things organized is less than ideal. It’s such an easy fix, but it remains a problem. Minor fixes getting ignored makes me worried about Google’s plan to keep Keep.
No sorting options??? 1/5
I don’t understand how the like of Google miss this.
Amazing app, it does what it claims almost flawlessly. I use it frequently and on a daily basis for work and personal projects across my iPhone 11, iPad Pro and PC, it syncs flawlessly and rapidly across all devices and platforms. Reliable and very easy to learn and use. I have not used this app to share materials with other users.
Pairs well with Google Assistant 4/5
I use Google Assistant rather than Siri, especially since I have Google smart devices throughout the home. Google Assistant has a built-in lists feature but I prefer to pair Assistant with Google Keep which has the same abilities as Apple’s Reminders app.
I used to LOVE this app! 3/5
I use Google Keep every day. Grocery lists. Speaking notes. Social media posting schedule. Reminders. Travel itineraries. And it’s very customizable.
BUT, recently the app has a MASSIVE lag. It’s so slow. What is going on here?
I do have one suggestion. The app has an annotation feature that allows you to draw on pictures saved to a note. Could you PLEASE offer an ADD TEXT option here as well?
It’s good but too slow 4/5
Its a good app but after some weeks of begin to be so slow looks like after you make a lot of note it wouldnt have any cash storage on the phone and after running evrytime needs to risive data from server,sory foe mistakes in text
5 sec delay when opening a checklist note 1/5
With the some recent updates (3-4?) application became insanely slow on opening the specific note. Basic scenario:
1. cold start of application (on good wifi, iphone 8)
2. tap on pinned note with checklist of 600 ticked items.
3. app does some network request and openes a note in 6-7 seconds only
4. Navigate back to other notes with up to 100 check list items, they are being opened fine, no visible delay
5. Return back to the problematic note, tap on it again
6. Observe step #3 here again, long network request and 6-7 sec delay.
Please fix it, previoisly there were no delays in opening big notes.
I love this app 1/5
I love this app useful in a lot of different freaking ways especially the fact that it is cross platform and allows lists and color coding and labels. It’s phenomenal.
The only reason for the one Star is because maybe they would read this and could take the following constructive criticism:
1) idk if this exists and I’m just dumb but if you could have a read only mode it would be amazing I hate when I’m scrolling through my notes to read them and the keyboard pops up.
2) if I could record a voice memo from a note as I read it and have it save to that note, it would be amazing
Thank you ❤️❤️
More bugs than feature 1/5
I cant believe that this app is from Google. Its a pathetic bug filled app for something which has such a limited functionality. Trying opening the app on 3g/4g connection and it wont even load a note or open the search bar
User Experience 3/5
By Tha Oracle
Google please add a lock and security features so notes cannot be deleted by accident and protection from info being breached.
It’s weird that can’t set dark mode in mobile 4/5
By Patrick Li - 95
I am an addicted user of google keep. And I use it in both mobile and website. I love the dark mode which does help me writing down some thoughts more willingly. However, it’s been a while since the dark mode came out, and still the only setting is from the web, which does take effect on mobile app. I honestly don’t get the point why we don't allow setting from the mobile app because sometimes like the early morning you still want to use dark mode and in the early evening you still want to use light mode. I am a product manager too and at those moments I will feel a bit frustrated.
Unbelievable Lagging 2/5
Used to work great on android but now it barely works on my iPhone 8 plus. I open the app and try to press ANYTHING and it takes several minutes for a click to register. Searching for a note has become a extremely frustrating process. I used this app to remember things because, due to neurological late stage lyme disease, I have a hard time remembering things. This app has been so helpful in the past and now I am unable to access important notes about my health, research I’ve done, etc. Very upset about this. This was my most used app prior to switching phones
By real user 😎
Would like to see date created
Tesxt style 4/5
Needs to add text styling options like changing font size ,...
A must have, flawless 5/5
By servalis traficantis
Do not change my app
Recommendation for next update! 3/5
Could you please make it so we can do check-boxes/tick-boxes and paragraph text in the same note, rather than having to make two separate ones. That would be so wonderful! Otherwise, I love this app!
Worst App To Use On My IPad 1/5
This app is the worst espressially on my iPad. It keeps freezing up on my iPad
Better notes app than apple’s notes 5/5
By Review guy 467
Easily categorize notes with labels. Add audio to a note. Doesn’t so far take up storage in google drive.
Sticks when you search for a specific note 4/5
I love this app. The only thing I’m not happy about is when you click to search for a specific note the keys sticks. This makes my IPhone 11 Pro Max screen freeze up. It takes it a couple of seconds but it happens every time you do this. Very nerve racking. Please fix, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you
Amazing App- one thing missing 4/5
I LOVE this app, and use it almost daily. I did notice recently that the option to add grids/lists that you can add rows to as you go is missing, which is upsetting , but not the worst thing.
The one thing that IS missing, which would make this app perfect, is the option to rearrange pictures within a single note. When I add a picture to a note, it automatically puts it on the top, and I want to be able to move them around.
Dark mood please
I really need to be able to change the font size 2/5
By Bella is okay
For us that need a bigger print, that's mainly my only frustration with this app. I love the colors choices which allows me to separate by subject. But it's so hard to read for me with such a tiny font. I don't need a magnifier with other apps.
They finally fixed the freezing issue! 5/5
By Conman lewser
They finally fixed the freezing issue while drawing. Thank goodness!
Love it! 5/5
By MiraMira P
A new fave to keep track of my to do lists. I even love the color options.
Dark-UX/UI = NO Sign Out. Always ON. 2/5
It works just fine, blah, blah, blah.
YOU CAN’T LOG OUT. And “they” are now on your most personal device with your permission to access ALL of your content; late-night hidden-selfies and all, 24/7.
The UX/UI that you normally use to LOG OUT on the web-based personal-data recorders, I mean free cloud software, will take you only in circles with KEEP.
You can delete the app. Or add another of your accounts, then delete your original account.
DON’T SIGN INTO CHROME. It’s a toggle switch BURIED in Chrome settings.
Uh oh, two black vans are parking down the block.
Crashing after less than a minute of typing 4/5
It keeps on crashing exclusively on my Ipad after less than a minutes of me typing. It its still pretty great when it has working properly, I still use it in other devices and I’m not having problems with them, just in my ipad. I’m uppdating my apps all the time so, please fix this soon.
Would like a watch complication 4/5
Works great, but would like to see a watch complication be added for quick access.
No display setting for font 3/5
Seriously, have someone review this for accessibility. And then have some people that are mid 40s try it out. Then you’ll find that you need to add a setting to bump up font size. It should at least react to the iOS general text size setting (dynamic type). To be clear I’m not talking about customizing the font in each note, just about the overall readability.
Great potential to be better 2/5
I am a Google user -- mail, calendar, drive, docs, forms, sheets -- I use it all. A lot of potential for this app that is not being developed, and in my mind all Google has to do is perform simple tweaks to better align Keep with its other apps:
1. Institute an easily visible folder system (just like drive). Tags and a limited array of colors do not cut it. Color codes should at least be automatic when you label with a certain tag.
2. Too easy to tap somewhere on the list and unintentionally edit or delete text. Add an edit button and eliminate the ability to edit just by tapping screen!!! So many times I've gone into a note to check off a box or touched the screen & ended up unintentionally altering my note.
3. Change notifications to match Calendar
By Damon Mack
I love having it integrated into my Google account. I recently switched from Samsung to Apple, and I noticed this app lags constantly compared to Samsung. My phone (11) and this app are both up to date.
Turn off dark mode 2/5
Let me turn off dark mode in the app —
Change size of text? 4/5
By Cowgirl 429
I like most things about this app especially the search and pin to top functions. I Would really like to change the text sizes. Maybe other font options as well I.e. bold, italic, strike through... possibly be able to group notes together.
Very good notes app 4/5
I love Google Keep and have been using it for years now. I recently got an iPhone and was glad that my notes were not something I had to worry about figuring out how to transfer over, so that was a huge plus for this app. While I don’t see myself using anything else for the time being, I do have a few complaints: I don't like the fact that you can't switch the theme manually. Yes I just dark theme as the norm for my phone but I prefer certain apps to stay on light theme at all times (e.g. Twitter) and especially this being a text app (by my usage), the dark theme gets real annoying real quick. Another that I wish could be changed is the way a single note is handled. For example, for one I don't always want the image to be the first thing in the note. Also would like to be able to mix different types of notes (e.g. having a checklist inside of a paragraph). Those may sound trivial but I'm sure I'm not the only one who's had these thoughts. Keep improving an already good product!
buggy syncing 2/5
My IOS copy doesn’t sync well with my android and desktop versions. Deleted notes and checked items still show up, and it requests a manual sync that never completes. I reinstalled, and have a correct sync for now, but can I trust it?
Have yet to try this app 5/5
By Nate The Great 🥰
Looks like a great app to collaborate with friends and family.
only thing i’ve written a review on 5/5
i see people hating in this app but it’s great. you can use it as an extension to your google calendar on laptop and it syncs to your devices. easy simple design if you are a person who likes the ease of simplicity but productivity at the same time. i think when note apps are too complex they ruin the purpose. this is not too simple but not too complex in my opinion because there’s color coding, labeling, adding images, adding checkboxes. i love it, been using for a few months now.
Dark Mode Toggle 3/5
Used to love this app. But since they apply the dark mode the color looks bad. Please make toggle for turn on / off. Yeah i used the dark mode for phone but I don’t want for this app, because looks ugly in dark mode. Please bring toggle in setting.
Need password protection 3/5
This app is good but lacks security feature. This needs to have password protection ability
Ugly as hell 1/5
Come on google...
Love This App!!! 5/5
Just downloaded yesterday, and I’m already in love with it!!! Easy to use, easy on the eyes, and great features!!! Love how the notes arrange in a “most recent first” order. Also, love how you can move hem around.
Easily best for link-based lists 5/5
I’m shopping for things across websites and making a decision with my dad, I can make a note and put all the links there and Keep makes the note have tidy little previews that are east to tap and evaluate a a glance. No more sharing a word document with long links, or with or tedious to make hyperlinks. It’s nice that iMessage allows you to just view the links shared in a conversation, but Keep is better for me since we will switch topics often, and want to exclusively view all my potential - for instance: motorcycles - in one place.
Performance is not good compared to android app.
Buggy on iPhone 2/5
This app is the biggest disappointment in Google’s collection. The app is very basic compared to its competitors, which I actually love. It worked really well on Android and syncs almost instantly with the web. But on iOS, this app is a laggy, crash-happy mess.
There are so many performance issues and none of the “updates” have done anything to address them.
If you’re not already incredibly reliant on this app like me, do not download it.
