    I mainly use Keep for shopping lists. Sharing with my wife so we can both edit it as necessary. Google could make it even more useful if it worked with Assistant. Because Keep is far easier to access than the default Google Assistant Shopping List Service. (Whoo even knows where that is??) Why not simply have a menu setting where you can choose the listing or note taking service that you want to use. I vote to keep Keep! Full Review

    First, I love this application with all my heart, mind and soul; truly. I can only hope my brilliance is not being "borrowed" by the almighty Google hubs as a result. Interestingly, many of my notes pertaining to Android improvements have quickly become structured into the performance of many Android functions. Hmmm... Well, so far, I've maxed out the folder limit at fifty folders. I really want more folders. One constructive note: on occasion, my edit attempts enact with glitchy variations. Full Review

    There's a huge problem with handling images. 1. Images cannot be seen on full screen, a white bar covers them for no good reason! 2. High resolution images look completely distorted at first on all phones. However they become clear when the pen icon is pressed to edit them and when they are saved again, their resolution drops but clarity is maintained. Full Review

    Writing notes is fast, finding them afterwards is a whole other deal. The only thing I wish for this app is the improvement of the organizational side. Bundles, fine grained scheduling, checkboxes and text/images in a single note... This kind of things. Thanks for your time Full Review

    ONE NOTE BY MICROSOFT is sooooo much better. Even though I'm a hardcore Google fan. There is no editing option involved with photos. I can't crop a photo as per my needs. Also if I add images to a note it's all clustered on top. I can't put images between texts. Huge drawback. Full Review

    I am livid. With an outstanding wifi connection, on a Chromebook no less, Google keep will allow me to take an alter notes for about one minute then it decides it " isn't able to connect " and never does, losing all of my progress. This is unacceptable for Google. Decentralized apps on blockchains wouldn't do this. Full Review

    This to me is a life changing app... Every time I think of something i have to keep, something like tracking numbers or phone numbers, or keep a list/picture/anything really this is the app that makes it all possible. It syncs to any phone or device I have and it's all there.. this is the pen and paper you can never find!.. thank you Google! Full Review

    I have used KEEP everyday for several years. Use it in every store I shop in. I have a list for every store each in a different color. I add a photo at top of list of several things I can't find anywhere except there. The app saves my list of regular purchased items for the next visit. Use check boxes and the list is ready in seconds. Love all the lists I can make. If I don't plan on shopping there often, I move the store list to "archive" to retrieve later. Bought items are moved to the bottom where I can check and unchecked the box to find again and add on my latest shopping list. I use this app in so many ways, it's hard to describe them all to you.

    Needs a Save button. Why does this app keep getting more complicated to use. It used to be so easy. I can't figure out how to delete old notes and I can't figure out how to start new ones. It used to be simple to figure out before Google made it too complicated Full Review

    This app is awful unless you have a constant internet connection. I lost two notes because I wrote them without an internet connection. The apps stopped and I had to close it. When I went to check, two notes were gone. Everything else is fine, but this is an extremely big problem. Full Review

    I love the app, but it really needs the ability to snooze a reminder for a preset amount of time with one click. Currently it takes way too many clicks to snooze the reminder for an hour. Full Review

    If a reminder goes off even once dismissed it alters the position of the note in the list from where I carefully had it - it gets moved to the top so I have to move it back to where I want it. STILL get duplicate notifications - usually if one has fired and I go into the app subsequently it then fires again and there are 2. Also, can the default reminder time be 8am tomorrow consistently. Sometimes it is, other times it isn't dependent on what the time is when you set it. Poor handling of 2 devices - deferring a notification on 1 doesn't on the other - and when you do dismiss it on the 2nd it cancels the deferred time set on the 1st. Of all google apps, this is the buggiest Full Review

    Please include an option of Sub Label for us to better organize the Labels. Like Office as Mani Lable Under Office, sub label as Payments, Guest Arrivals.. etc.. & another option that would be great is to select different Notification sounds for different Labels & Custom Snooze Options for Reminders where we can choose the Snooze Time like 15min, 30min, 1Hr, 2Hr.. etc. It's like when a reminder sets of & we are in middle of some other work, we can choose from the multiple snooze buttons. This app would rock with the above options added... Thank You.. Full Review

    Please can you reinstate the 'delay for an hour' option on the reminder notifications. Having to go into a note to update the time because I've been caught up in something else each time is so slow. I end up just ignoring the notifications altogether which defeats the purpose. Full Review
