Evernote or Google Keep!
Having been using Google Keep for months now, I thought it was High time for me to talk about how Google Keep works better than Evernote! I have used Evernote in the past and simply loved it but there is no native Evernote client for
Android or Google Chrome. When I started looking for way to Keep notes on the go, I didn’t want to have the need to buy premium services from Evernote. I basically wanted a way to write blog ideas or topics for me to explore on my blog. I would usually just care a pen and paper wherever I go for when I thought of a blog topic or blog post. It got cumbersome but it was something I did because I love just to write on my blog! I really didn’t want to have to install another application on all my Android Devices. So I went stumbling around to find an alternative for Evernote and came across Google Keep which is installed on newer versions of Android operating systems.
Benefits of Google Keep!
Even though most of you have used Evernote, I thought it would be nice to talk about Google keep and how it could just be even easier to switch to it. I know why I did it but some people would probably like to know the main ways to use it!
- Voice Notes — When you record your voice with Google Keep. You then get a good example of what you said. It is what I like to call Voice to text speech. This feature helps you in the long run!
- Photos — You can easily save photos to the Google Keep and have them on other devices with little effort. I find this really good to use when you are wanting to save certain pictures.
- Checklists — This helps me tremendously with my blog but it can be used with Shopping or other things. I am sure people use this to check off stuff that needs to be done in the house or other odd jobs.
- Searchability — I just love being able to search for keywords or reminders in the app itself. I can find anything I’ve recorded or even written down on Google keep just by searching for it! Makes my life so much easier!
- Access on Devices — I can use on my Android phone, my Chrome OS, and my Tablets with ease to all you other devices. It can even be accessed on the web!
Evernote Vs Google Keep
I could easily do a who wins in my class but I honestly know each one has their unique qualities that some will like and other just hate. We could discuss about how Google has all your information to how Evernote can do so much more. I like to use free products and I trust Google. I simply do not want to have to install another application. I like Simple and this is the best simple for an Android user such as myself!
