Google keep is perfect for taking notes not the best for task management

I'm a very big Google fan and love their ecosystem that includes Google keep. I will continue to use Google keep for all my note needs and can't wait to see what else Google can come up with

Pros

Google keep is one of those pieces of software that you cannot live without if you are part of the Google ecosystem. It is integrated with all the other applications they offer and that makes everything so seamless

Cons

It's hard to really give this thing a con because it says right in the name Google notes it's created for taking notes and it does that perfectly. No matter where you take your note if you're connected to your Google account you'll be able to access that from anywhere. It's not the best when it comes to task management or project management but again that's not what the app is designed for

Best Note-Taking App for Free

I have been using Google Keep for a few years now and it's going to remain my favorite and go-to no frills note taking software. It is also absolutely free to use!

Pros

I love that Google Keep is free and can be easily integrated with other Google suite softwares. It is easy to use to take quick notes and/or to create a to-do list with dateline reminders.

Cons

For my needs, there isn't any features about Google Keep that I dislike or am missing. I decided with Google Keep after having looking into several other softwares and am currently quite satisfied with it.

Alternatives Considered

Todoist

Reasons for Choosing Google Keep

Didn't allow for simple note taking without any form of structural restrictions. I was looking for a software that allowed me to make a to-do list and also take notes, all in one platform.

Reasons for Switching to Google Keep

Because Todoist offered more features than what I was looking for which overwhelmed my experience. Todoist is a great product and allows for integration with other softwares like emails and calendars but it didn't fit my personal needs as I like to keep my emails and calendars separate from my to-do list.

Google Keep

Pros

I love taking notes daily. Check boxes notes and colour coding my notes were probably what I liked most about Google Keep.

Cons

Recently I have switched to samsung notes as there was an issue with using the phone keyboard in Google Keep. I did some research and found other users having this issue.
The autocorrect would not work properly. Prior to that I would use Google Keep notes every day.

My everyday notekeeper

Pros

I can use it from anywhere and anyhow. Since it's connected to cloud, I can use it from any device and any place. We can add notes and check it whenever we want. I preferably use keep to write what I think or some ideas that spark in my mind that has to be written then and there or else I would forget about it later.

Cons

Nothing. I like how keep works and it's easy to use. There might be some new cool features can be added in future like ai bot or grammar and typo error checker.

Your digital notepad that integrates with the Google Suite - so everything is all in one

It's been good. The fact that it syncs with your Google account is good because you can retrieve it from anywhere once logged in. It has a nice UI but it definitely has some work in terms of managing the notes.

Pros

I like the fact that it has a nice interface. It's customisable too for different colours and it looks like little blocks on your dashboard.

Cons

I think there's needs to be some sort of structural feature introduced. At the moment, all the blocks are scattered everywhere and looks a little messy. It needs some folder or structural feature to organise the notes.
