Google has now introduced note taking app Google Keep for the Apple iOS. The app was first introduced way back in March 2013 for web and Android users. It was then brought to Android Wear in 2014. All this while, it was not available for iOS users.
Now, the v1.0.4 version of Google Keep is available for download from the iOS App Store as well. It is compatible with the iOS 8 version and onward. With a size of 28MB, the app doesn’t occupy a lot of space. The only major turn off about this app is that it comes with the Material Design theme of Google, which may not be liked by ardent Apple fans.
One can make notes, lists and record voice reminders using Google Keep. They can even be categorized using labels, types and colors. This app also allows people set reminders based on date and location.
Another interesting feature of this app is that it allows users to share notes with other users in real time. Google Keep for iOS can transliterate voice memos and read the text from a picture to enable people find a note quickly by searching.
Though everything is pretty good about this app, the fact that iOS App Store already has EverNote and OneNote, will pose as a stiff competition for this late arrival. Moreover, the pre-instaled Notes app in iOS also got a major update recently.
We sure hope Google has thought through all the pros and cons of introducing this app on iOS and would have a vision for the prospect of this app on iOS platform that prompted its launch.
