While Google has been one of the leaders when it come sto many cloud apps, they've lagged behind the likes of Microsoft OneNote and Evernote when it comes to becoming the place where we store random bits of information. But they're trying to change that with a significant update to Google Keep, their note-taking platform. Let's take a look at what's changed and whether Keep can eat into their competitors' market share.

Yesterday, Google added its note taking tool, Keep, to its G Suite service (formally Google Apps). That means if you're using a company or school Google account you can finally get access to the excellent Google Keep. They also added access to Keep right in Google Docs.
You spend a lot of time taking notes in university. You have several excellent options for doing so, and which works best for you depends a lot on your note taking style. It's best to pick software and stick to it so you don't to worry about moving stuff around later. Here's how to make the right choice from the outset.
iOS: We're big fans of Google Keep, Google's notes and to-do app, but have long lamented the lack of a dedicated app on iOS. Today, Google's finally remedied that.
Chrome: If you're a regular Google Keep user, you might have missed a (relatively) new feature in the app. If you paste an image into a note, Google lets you convert the image into editable text.
Chrome: We love Google Keep, an Category Tabs for Google Keep adds colour-coded categories to make it even more useful. Just install the Chrome extension, and organising your Keep notes will be easier than ever.
When Google Keep launched, it never got the fanfare it deserved. The people that did review it compared it to all the wrong apps, like Evernote or Microsoft OneNote. That's a shame, because a surprisingly good note-taking app went under the radar, underrated for coming up short against contenders it wasn't designed to face. It's about time to give Google Keep a fair shake, see where it shines and how it fits in with the competition.
Google Keep, Google's new syncing note-taking service, is now available as a free Chrome app. After you add it to Chrome, Keep will launch in its own window, allowing you to type out notes and lists on the fly as you browse.
Chrome: Google Keep isn't the most full-featured note syncing service around, but it works well for casual note taking, and an unofficial Chrome extension lets you access it extremely quickly.
So Google doesn't think anyone needs an RSS feed service but apparently thinks we need multiple ways to take notes (other than Drive, Calendar, Gmail . . .) Google Keep is a new service that lets you create notes on an Android device or via the Web and then store them in Drive. In other words: Google wants some of that sweet Evernote market.
