Keeping track of your ideas and inspiration is very important – who hasn’t had a great idea while on the bus or train and then blanked when you got to your desk? I know it’s not just me!
That’s why I wanted to recommend this week the note taking app that I’ve fallen in love with: Google Keep. Evernote increased the prices of their plans and reduced the number of features in the basic plans, which led me to switch my alliance after many years – and I can’t believe why I haven’t been using Google Keep all along. (If you’re an Apple user, just hear me out – Google Keep on the iPad is a phenomenal user experience.)
Why not? Having a place on your mobile phone where you can easily add notes makes it easy to have all of your random thoughts and ideas put into one spot. The key is to have everything in one spot – you have to be consistent, otherwise if you have post it notes here, digital app notes there, you’ll be running around trying to find that one idea you forgot and wasting time doing so. No bueno.
I’ve been using a note taking app for years, and I find it just so much easier to keep the miscellany of business and life organized. Specifically, Google Keep has a lightweight design and easy access via desktop, tablet, and mobile (all synced immediately) that makes it the perfect note taking companion.
In addition to the design, let’s talk about some of the other aspects of the app.

It’s not perfect, though. Some things that aren’t ideal:
