Google Keep


Kylee Nowling, Staff Writer

A lot of students struggle when it comes to staying organized and keeping track of their assignments. This causes them to get behind in their classes and their grades to fall. Not too long ago I was introduced to an app called Google Keep. I had never heard of it before, and many students in our school haven’t either. Google Keep was introduced by Google on March 20, 2013. It is available on the web (school Chromebooks) and mobile apps (IOS and Android). Google Keep is linked via your Google account, and can be used in a variety of ways. It is mainly a list making app, but can also be used to set reminders and take notes. In the Google Keep app you get the satisfaction of checking boxes off your long to-do lists. It also has fun features such as making your notes colorful, adding images, and adding audio. I have only been using Google Keep for a couple days, and it has helped me tremendously. Having my homework on my phone is much more convenient than having it written in my agenda. I would highly recommend Google Keep to everyone, especially high school students.
