  • No widget? 2/5

    By Will2116
    I’m coming from Android and I’m used to having a widget in that OS. It would be great if you could add a widget to iOS. Other than that, the app looks good overall so far.
  • Please add a widget! 5/5

    By FRSBrian
    I’ve been using keep since my android days back in 2013. I really want a widget like I had on android to quickly access notes from my home screen now that IOS supports widgets. Other then that the app works great. Update - Still no widget.
  • Needs better features. 3/5

    By Purplepie6245
    Hi, UX design/research student here. I think these would help a lot. • ability to indent more than once • ability to use both checkboxes and regular text in the same note • “change labels” should be “manage labels” These 3 things would make a huge improvement to my (and probably many other) experiences!
  • Problem in typing 1/5

  • Good app; just wish I could attach and insert links & files easily 3/5

  • Dumpster fire 1/5

    By ynk1121
    Amazing the difference between the iOS version and Android. This constantly freezes up and is slower than pouring molasses in Winter.
  • Things that would greatly improve my experience 🥺 4/5

    By kfdcl
    - widget - enable light mode during system dark mode, or option to keep pastel colors when in dark mode THANKYOUI LOVE YOU!!!
  • Suggestion 4/5

    By Mrsgossage
    It would be great to have a word search option within a note and also select a photo as a background for a note but I am loving the app so far.
  • Worse on iOS than on Android 3/5

    By mayan.maniac
    I recently switched from Android to Apple and I’ve noticed the Keep app is more glitchy and needs more refinement. On Android, we had these lovely pastel hues for color coding and the app wouldn’t shut down as I was editing lists and reordering checkboxes like it does on Apple. Please fix
  • Essential to my life 5/5

    By ..:Figgy Newton..:
    If you have difficulty managing your time, I highly recommend using Keep. It works great for remembering ideas, creating a to do list and organizing all of your daily tasks. It helps arrange my time so much better and for that I give it an A+
  • Eencryption 1/5

    By Hamoor1
    it's necessary to add individual encryption for notes, why you're not doing it?!!
  • Love it - only 1 issue 4/5

    By Mchoichoi
    Love google keep and use it everyday. One issue that I’ve noticed for years is when I use the checkboxes and accidentally swipe a box to the right. When I try to move it back to the left, it glitches and shuts down the app. This is the only issue, but it’s pretty annoying. Please fix it! Love google keep other than that!

  • Never refreshes even when I pull down 1/5

    By GreatBlakes
    I've had this app for over two years now and it never refreshes to sync my notes. Even when I try to pull down to manually refresh it doesn't do anything. I've resorted to needing to open the web version in safari every time because this app is entirely useless and Goolge obviously does not care to fix it in over 2 years.
  • Needs improvement 3/5

    By madiJ16
    I do like being able to store notes, but there are things I would prefer: locking notes and better display (cute but too cluttered). Other than that the app is great.
  • Photos not showing up on phone app 1/5

    By Whytry2talktoyoupeople?
    All of my photos have turned into the image symbol. They will not appear on the phone.
  • Just stick with apple notes 1/5

    By smoofsmoof
    Complete and utter garbage. They reeled me in with the cute backgrounds and font sizing abilities, but wow. Twice now I’ve logged in and notes are completely gone from my entire account, which I only access from one device. What is the point?
  • Missing Notes Wigget 3/5

    By Danilo Sekara
    Everything is great as on Android but lack of widget which shows pinned notes is a big drawback. Google please create this widget. Thanks :)
  • Deleted my entire set of lecture notes 1/5

    By Cseager
    Downloaded thinking that google saves everything, and it worked fine at first. However, I took an hour length of lecture notes and it did not save any of it. I would recommend using a different app
  • Repeat function not working 2/5

    By wavygirl27
    I like the concept here. I set my reminders to repeat daily and they are not doing that. Unless I’m missing a step. Probably going to move on to something that works better.
  • Locking app or set password 3/5

    By علیرضا یوسفی
    Please insert an option that we able to lock the app or set password for it. Tanx
  • 2 buggy years of Google keep… done 2/5

    By cbbam
    After 2 years of using Google Keep on iPhone I have to uninstall it. Long time Google keep user since 2013 (on Android) I've been using Google Keep on iPhone since 2020 and it's been a mess but I continue to use it because I still do use an Android device and it's been convenient to be able to quickly take notes on Android and still be able to access them on my iPhone and tablet. Unfortunately I've gotten to the point where I just have to uninstall this app. Constant note duplication, check boxes randomly popping up where they shouldn't be, Deleted Notes coming back from the dead. There's more bugs with the app but I don't have time to go through all of them. Just know that the app is unreliable. This has been a problem ever since I installed it on my iPhone. Obviously it's never going to get fixed so I have to get rid of it in order to still be able to use the application on my computer and Android device.
  • Search function is hit or miss. 2/5

    By Jetatx
    Why does search function never have consistent results. Search is not very good. When I search in gmail, I get other results for the same keywords. I don’t have confidence in finding things the first time. Please fix.
  • Sync to Doc 3/5

    By Elektrabre
    I have discovered this app and feel like it would work well with my students who need help with organizing and reminders. I absolutely love the idea that you can send a copy to Google Docs. In my mind, once in the docs, I would share it with a parent or coach for additional accountability. My only gripe is that once it's shared to the docs, if I update the note, it will not update the doc. This in turn could created multiple docs and a cluttered display. Overall, I will recommend and I'll have some students test it out.
  • Great, but 3/5

    By RaterFL
    This app is a great note app. However, unlike its competitors and as others have mentioned there is no way to apply a pin or password to protect app access or individual notes. This is despite its direct competitors offering that extra layer of security. Too bad!
  • Good app just needs a few extra features 4/5

    By Simmond3
    I like the app as it is user friendly and streams well to the overall google platform. I like being able to sync with my other google items I.e. google calendar and collaborate with family members. Some things I would like to see added is the checkbox area. I like to have the ability to add a subset checkboxes. I usually have something I am working and break it down. This also helps me with consolidating notes and not keeping my lists too concentrated. I like colors options and would like to see more available backgrounds.
  • Reminders won't delete 1/5

    By gvandd
    When try to delete a reminder it appears gone until you go out of the note and it's still there. Delete reminders not working. Reminders not syncing or updating. Reminders don't work.

  • So far I like it 3/5

    By phfd65
    So far it seems to be better than the IOS platform of NOTES. I would like to see the following. 1- Ability to increase font size, bold, underline, italic and change font color. 2- Notification setting to where if the the note is being shared you are notified when it is updated by the other party. Right now you have to check it every so often to see if it was updated by the person you are sharing the note with.
  • It’s good. 5/5

    By HunterGardener
    I felt compelled to write a review. I rarely do. I have used this app for a couple of years now and have not seen any issues at all. Works just fine. Does what it’s supposed to do.
  • Please give the user the ability to increase the font size 3/5

    By Meshaal.. O
    Its excellent app since its cross platform for both ios and android, but please give the user the ability to increase the font size,, the font size is very small and not increasable. You should take the users feedback.. it is a feature to increase the font. It is not a big issue to make Please do it
  • It’s ok 2/5

    By Atapaz89
    Google is probably trying to keep some feature restricted on iOS devices but I wish you could make folders and change font style like Bold, underline and italics at least.
  • Worst Search Feature 2/5

    By Oscueq
    Anything good this app has is taken away by the terrible method it uses to search for notes. If I have a note saved as FAR it will show me every single note with these words in it but the actual note named FAR is either hidden in the middle of hundreds of notes or the last one, instead of being the first one displayed
  • نوشتن از راست به چپ 4/5

    By ramrami5
    با سلام در مورد زبانهایی که از راست به چپ نوشته می شوند باید عرض کنم که پس از نوشتن و خروج از برنامه و ورود مجدد ترتیب نوشتن از راست به چپ به چپ به راست تغییر می کنند. ضمنا نوشتن با فاصله در هر سطر هم با مشکل مواجه هست و پس از خروج از برنامه همه نوشته ها چپ چین می شوند. لطفاً در صورت امکان این ایرادات را رفع نمایید. سپاس
  • Good try 2/5

    By f33db4ck86
    Everything is cool except you can only add 1 photo at a time.
  • Font size 4/5

    By JanetPrentice
    Please let us increase the font size!
  • Weird checkbox glitch 1/5

    By Jessegpierce
    Keep works great through the desktop website and extension, but a recent update on iOS (maybe last 2 months) has turned my notes into a minefield of checkbox lists and sometimes duplicating images. I will hide checkboxes on the desktop side then immediately refresh on the iOS app and watch the notes repopulate with checkboxes. It’s incredibly annoying. I will have to stop using this altogether and go exclusively with apple’s native notes app or some alternative.
  • Great except for 2 things! 4/5

    By DuvalinTae
    I really enjoy this app, I am able to take notes and keep them neat and organized. However, I wish this app had a lock feature. I tried setting one on my phone and was not able to. I think that would make this app 10 times better. I also wish you could change the color of the text on here as well. Other than that I love it!
  • Significant Lag Time 2/5

    By 18462)1!;03
    Significant lag time between when I tap on the app to open and when it actually opens. Same significant lag time issue when I attempt to open individual lists once inside the app. And same lag time issues when I attempt to move list items around from within a list or cross items off a list. These lag issues have become increasingly common over the last two months. Disappointing. It’s become Frustrating enough that I’m exploring alternatives.
  • Great app but alot of sync issues. 3/5

    By Cybernide
    This app meeds a reset data and resync feature. About once a week I would have improperly synced notes. Sometimes shows notes that are already deleted or most of the times show checkboxes for stuff already completed and deleted.
  • Font size is too small 2/5

    By La Katherine
    Difficultto read.
  • Interesting 1/5

    By Aschober
    Web link in notes Cannot copy typical Tell it to open in browser but it opens in a keep window not the selected browser window
  • Requires a Google/Alphabet Account 1/5

    By Gonsplode
    Can’t do anything with the app or run on just run one device without creating a Google/Alphabet account. Disappointing.
  • Wow. 2/5

    By partimeseller
    I am chronically surprised at the quality of real solutions offered in the reviews of google products. But I am astounded at Googles lack of adoption of these solutions. The software engineer circle jerk forgot there is an audience.
  • Used it for years 5/5

    By playpus1255556
  • Maybe worth a shot? 3/5

    By Emidee-san
    I like the ability to do both audio recordings and transcriptions within Google Keep, but it is difficult to know when or why the audio stops recording. Sometimes, I take a quick pause for a breath and then the audio recording cuts off, other times I'm silent for more than 10 seconds and it's still recording when I want it to turn off. The transcriptions are sometimes very in accurate which is frustrating to me as well I have not explored many other features of the app yet, but looking at some of the other reviews, I don't find Google keep to be very promising in terms of functionality in anything else that has to offer.
  • Useful 5/5

    By Heather Overstreet
    I enjoy this being synced to my gmail, makes things easy!
  • Half baked like all other Google PII stealing apps 2/5

    By ineloquucius
    The interface to this thing is unbelievably clumsy. If you try to make a shopping list, probably the quintessential application for this, you are constantly messing up the indentation, making food items look like food categories and vice versa. It’s nearly impossible to prevent this as scrolling up and down is what causes this when your finger moves ever so slightly to the left or right in the process. The only good thing I can say about it is that it synchronizes very quickly. But the many other feelings of it keep my spouse and I ever searching for something better. I’m just really glad that Google now knows what we eat every week.
