* Bug fixes and performance improvements


• Capture, edit, share, and collaborate on your notes on any device, anywhere.
• Add notes, lists, photos, and audio to Keep.
• Organize your notes with labels and colors.
• Set and forget. Get reminded about a note at the right time or place.
• Record a voice memo and have it automatically transcribed.
• Grab the text from an image to help you quickly find that note again through search.

Need to remember to pick up some groceries? Set a location-based reminder to pull up your grocery list right when you get to the store. Need to finish a to-do? Set a time-based reminder to make sure you never miss a thing.

Next time you go to the store, share your shopping list on Keep and watch as items get checked off in real time. No need for text messages back and forth. Get things done together, faster.

Quickly filter and search for notes by color and other attributes like lists with the label “To-dos”, audio notes with reminders or just see shared notes. Find what you're looking for even faster, and let Keep do the remembering for you.

Keep works on your phone, tablet and computer. Everything you add to Keep syncs across your devices so your important stuff is always with you.

Needs to add passcode protection
Raihansomc on 4/21/2018
Great app. Use it all the time.
Superb notes.
Deep developer on 4/20/2018
I love Google keep a lot.I've been using keep for about three years . But if the developers make this app text resizable according to the OS then it would be great. Again swipe left to go back would be a great addition for the developers if they add these features. Plz add these features.
SpicyMustardSeeds on 4/18/2018
Overall I love the functionality of the app. I do wish the graphic design was a little more considered though and matched the rest of Google’s brand standards, or then at least give the user the ability to change the font. It would also be nice if when you are in Google Calendar and click the option “open in Google Keep” if it actually opened up that note instead of just opening the app. It would be extra nice if Google Calendar could just import the checklist from Keep and you could use it in Calendar. Overall I would recommend
iPhone X bug
kevin38584 on 4/18/2018
Please fix iPhone X big that makes the screen go blank.
TaRacey on 4/18/2018
This app worked well until the current update. Now I can’t use it. Keeps telling me it needs to refresh and when I click the refresh button it crashes and when it finally opens about 80% of my content is missing. I seriously need to get to my notes. Please fix this! Update: The few lists I was left with after this recent update can’t be changed. I can’t move anything within the list and the app continues to insist that it needs to be refreshed and then crashes. Other important notes are gone and not showing up at all. Very disappointing. When you try to make things better for others, please don’t make things worse for the rest of us.
MediaTeacher12 on 4/17/2018
Can't open my grocery list without the app closing. Really pissing me off.
Can’t sort lists alphabetically or by date
maxword on 4/17/2018
With a few changes it could be a killer app. However no major improvements have been made to it for years.
Needs to allow alphabetizing
Michael A Webermann on 4/16/2018
This product is fine but I stopped using it because there is no option for sorting/alphabetizing! I will update my review when they add this.
Needs work
Andy3416 on 4/15/2018
Constantly freezes and locks up on iPhone X, especially when opening a note
Love this app!!!
Giffy15 on 4/15/2018
Would be awesome if you could lock it with a password.☺️
Apple Watch
lamyaSA on 4/14/2018
Great application:) Even though I don’t usually use my cellphone. Please we need a version of this application for Apple Watch to keep track our business. Thanks!
Frozen in time
Crocodillytoo on 4/13/2018
I deleted the app from my Apple IPhone 6S+, Then a “update” popped up in the App Store update section, it put the icon and software back onto the table top, however the icon is frozen in update status, but till not update. Frustrating to open - App Store, update section, see the keep icon there, but will not update. Please fix this. I’ve found I do want to keep “KEEP”
In Order
JorgeLJardim on 4/12/2018
After you make a list, it’s impossible to put it in a order (alphabetic for example). And to move one item up or down is a disaster!!!
Feel like an Android app
hyouuu on 4/10/2018
Did they just port the android app here?? Feels so clumsy... I find even small new apps like the Pendo Note on front page way more enjoyable. Or iOS’s own Note app is getting much better than before. This only beats Evernote :p
I LOVE this app!
Brent_D on 4/10/2018
I use Google Keep every day. Grocery lists. Speaking notes. Social media posting schedule. Reminders. Travel itineraries. And it’s very customizable. 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?
otzmx on 4/9/2018
Creo que le hace falta ponerle una contraseña.
Buggy on iOS
Hcrap2009 on 4/8/2018
Can’t share anything to this app on iOS. No scans or will crash. Very buggy defeats purpose. Doesn’t handle image files well from iOS devices. Needs proper scan app PDF support Better note taking for Apple Pencil. Also buggy won’t save properly sometimes so notes can be lost. Best interface and search out there but seems as if google is holding back on this. Maybe due to anti trust issues or something. Evernote had its chance
Terrible on iPhone X
Laughingdesign on 4/8/2018
I actually Did not switch back to android because keep launched on IOS. Ever since upgrading to X this app has been super slow, taking 5+ seconds to load?
Great Idea, very buggy
Mlmatthews322 on 4/8/2018
I really love the idea of Google Keep but it is so buggy! Reorders never stick when you want something else to be first...and is incredibly problematic, generally. Random letters will generate when you are typing. It’s just super glitchy!
Not reliable
ugh39583738 on 4/7/2018
When typing items will untype and disappear. Many times doesn’t sync correctly with other phones connected to the app. Not impressed at all.
No syncing
dnatoy on 4/7/2018
It seems that Google not improving or maintaining this product. Syncing bug makes this app useless. It is disappointing when you realize that yours shopping list was never synced across devices. Switching to iOS Notes. Notes work without any problems.
Mehhh, just ok.
Trandy Birch on 4/6/2018
As a note taking app- my opinion is the basics just OK. No way highlight text, make a bulleted list, italicize, bold, etc.
Great for simple list sharing
pmarie5 on 4/6/2018
This is great to share lists between me and my husband. It would really be handy if when you start typing the app would look to your own list of checked items to suggest auto fill - and then automatically move the checked item up to the list. This would make grocery lists a lot easier.
First one I have found that truly works!
minivanpilot on 4/3/2018
Lots of well thought out features that finally create a “to do” and general list maintenance tool that works for my life!
have some things that i don't know
docelife on 4/2/2018
when i download this app , I found some text in the upper left corner. I don't know if it was intentional or a bug.I use 6s.
Apple Pencil
Beckylynn803 on 4/2/2018
Make compatible, please!!
The best reminder and note app
ompt709 on 4/2/2018
Easily syncs across desktop, iOS and Android. iOS version finally gets 5 stars after today's update since it loads immediately after the splash screen. It used to take about 10 seconds even on an iPhone 8 plus. No joke. Finally loads as fast as all other versions!
Had potential
careoh on 3/28/2018
This app used to work perfectly but I’ve recently had trouble using it. It lags a whole lot when I’m trying to write down a list and especially when I’m trying to move the order of the items on a list (when I try moving an item on a list it ends up messing up the whole order of the list) It also lags when I’m trying to move a whole note around. It’s really frustrating and keeps me from using this as my go to note taking app.
Been using this for years
Beth2113 on 3/26/2018
Of the few apps I’ve been using for years now. Its a pleasure to use, I love the color options and I get so happy when they add new colors.
BMooch on 3/25/2018
FAIL!!! USE ANOTHER APP I want to like Google Keep, I find it useful to input task from Laptop. iPhone app will not open... it hangs on the screen with the Google Keep icon. The app never opens... Google support never responds to the customer.
Synercivic on 3/25/2018
Been on a search for an app that does EXACTLY what google keep does. The interface is simple, fast and so elegantly designed. I love having photos and list all arranged by color and type AT A GLANCE. The search function is INCREDIBLY accurate. Thank you thank you thank you
Great Resource but Keeps Crashing
Dreaming4Disney on 3/24/2018
I love the app in theory. I can organize, share, make lists, etc. My major problem is that every single time I take a picture in the app, it crashes. So frustrating.
Absolutely infuriating!
thefishie on 3/24/2018
This worked great for over a month, then every other week (or update) it’s useless and all you can see is the home screen.
Love the app, but
Qpease on 3/24/2018
I like the app and its functions and use it on my computer all the time. But it crashes when I try to open it on my iPhone. I even got a new iPhone and it still crashes. Not sure what to do can’t give it great review or even close if this keeps up.
Severe scrolling lag makes app USELESS
Kacenpoint on 3/23/2018
Scrolling lag on longer lists makes the app utterly USELESS on iOS. What bug fixes are you claiming to update without any improvement to this fatal problem?
Crashes Frequently
Chronogos on 3/22/2018
This app crashes often, especially when adding a photo or changing labels.
Location-based reminders don’t work
iOSUser001 on 3/19/2018
Location-based reminders don’t work on any Google app I have installed (including Inbox, Keep, Assistant). From what I’ve read on the internet, it’s a problem that many iOS and Android users have. I’ve tried everything for them to work, but they just wouldn’t. The location-based reminders on the iOS default reminders app work just fine. Well, I love everything else about this app.
highly recommend
money💵💵 on 3/18/2018
10/10 I absolutely enjoy this app. It has such a clean and simple design. It's super easy to organize all of your lists and notes together. The color coding option is great for categorizing and prioritizing what you've got to do; the pinning options also helps sort out what's important and or urgent for you. Super duper easy to post, share, and even add photos to notes or lists. This app helps me a great deal and it's the best one I've found so far to organize all of my lists. It's definitely worth the download.
Reminder notifications DO NOT work
Brianm916 on 3/18/2018
So frustrating
Horrible after moving to iphoneX
Ssmukh on 3/17/2018
The app constantly crashes, shows blank spaces on and off when i type, or doesn’t show the characters at all. Informed tech support weeks ago. They asked for more information. But didn’t fix it. Quite lame. Have to find a different notes app. In general, keep has been plagued with bigs from the very beginning. Tech support had been fixing issues. But seems like Google doesn’t really care about keep any longer.
Crashes and Hangs
One Solar Mass on 3/17/2018
Perfect when it works but falls short of the Android version in terms of reliability and stability.
his new fan on 3/15/2018
I am giving this 5 stars and more because it’s just perfect and easy to navigate. I love everything about it but can there be a new feature that we can change the font of all my notes. I don’t like look of the font, it’s looks chunky and not slim and neat. But other than that, no complaints about the app! Recommend for those notetakers out there!
Ejaazi on 3/15/2018
Instead of a main page with notes all over the page, Google Keep needs folders much like Google Drive.
New version on March 15 crashes when opening certain notes
John O from New York on 3/15/2018
Worked fine yesterday when opening all of my notes on iPhone 8+. Updated to the new version on March 15 and it now instantly crashes when opening only certain notes. Otherwise a great and useful app until this update bug.
recurring tasks
Kellimartin7 on 3/14/2018
this app would be great if the recurring tasks actually synced and continuously send notifications the way I set it up. going to seek another app for this purpose. 2 stars because it works for 1-time tasks and I like the interface and customization features.
Just Starring to Use it
FireCaptDave on 3/13/2018
Been using it for a couple of weeks. I like it's simple style bit wish it had a few more features. A scanning feature would be nice. Better integration with other programs would be nice too. The reminders seem a little weak. Often miss them or can't hear them.
Perfect Notes and Reminder for me
Parth Godhani on 3/12/2018
Initially I installed this for only simple purpose, to save the my notes. After unboxing features of google notes, it is too helpful for me in all kind of reminders and notes. It is so easy and convenient to use on cross platform.
Over 2000 notes now
corefusion on 3/12/2018
Update: I thought Google Keep was improving but just when I think that everything goes wrong again. It seems when I'm low on storage space, Google Keep converts all my notes to checklists and because of that I have lost even more content trying to convert them back. It's also really painful converting what is now 3000+ notes back to non-checklists. Also super annoying: the microphone dictation based notes always cut out mid-thought. Keep team: please understand that pauses in human speech are common NOT an indication that we're done saying our thoughts. Sadly there's no way to extend the recording for the note or tell it to record for a full minute at a time or keep going until I tell it to stop. Infuriating! Original review: Keep is so slow, and unreliable. Note content has been disappearing, and there's no history to restore the lost data from (revert to older states, as at least one other reviewer has asked for). I have occasionally lost whole notes, and one time all of my text notes were converted to checklists. Every time I capitalize or uncapitalize a word, the note almost immediately changes it back. So freaking annoying. Also, very frequently, Keep causes iOS to restart. I want to like Keep, I really do. There's nothing else like it. But I just can't. I keep updating with hopes that the next update fixes the issues, but it never does. Come on Google, fix this already!!
Fix it
Betsalets on 3/11/2018
Drag & drop functionality for items within lists is broken. Multiple updates have failed to address it. What gives?
Notes, Lists, Reminders, & Sharing
<3Coco on 3/11/2018
This app is great! It does so much more then give me a place to jot down notes. My favorite feature is the ability to set a reminder to a location!
