Google Updates Keep Note-Taking App With Reminders

Google on Wednesday updated its note-taking app Keep with a few handy features that should help you stay on top of your to-do lists.

The latest version of the app works with Google Now to remind you of important tasks on your list at exactly the right place and time, Erin Rosenthal, product manager for Google Keep for Android, wrote in a blog post Wednesday. It can, for instance, remind you of your grocery list as you walk into ShopRite, or even nudge you to take out the trash at night.

To enable this feature, select the “Remind me” button from the bottom of any note, then specify whether you’d like to set a time or location-based reminder. You can set time-based reminders for a specific date and time, or a general time like tomorrow morning. When selecting location reminders, Google Keep will suggest places nearby as you type, which should make things super easy.

“Of course, sometimes plans change. If you get a reminder you’re not ready to deal with, simply snooze it to a time or place that’s better for you,” Rosenthal wrote.

Meanwhile, the app also includes a new navigation drawer, which lets you view all of your upcoming reminders in one place. The drawer also easily lets you switch between home and work accounts.

The update also makes it easier to add photos to a note on Android. When you tap the camera icon, you can now select whether you’d like to take a new photo or add one from your Gallery.

The update is rolling out “gradually” in Google Play, and is now available on the Web and in the Chrome app. For more, see PCMag’s full review of Google Keep.
