Notes for Google Keep App Reviews

18 add

The Google Keep website wrapped in a WebView

1. Yet another app that bundles the website into a webview. Thanks, but I could have done that with a Chrome plugin, for free :-( 2. The only thing it adds is the possibility to display the notes in the background, in a wallpaper-like form :-| 3. But: hiding the application, using „F12“ or so, also hides the wallpaper-notes :-( 4. The hotkey doesn’t work on El Capitan and the „Open at Login“ doesn’t work as the application can’t be added to the „login item list“ :-( 5. Using the browser shortcuts works, which is not cool as using „CMD + left-arrow-key“ jumps back to the login page :-( This is worth one third of what I paid but definitely not €2.99...

Great App

Great App, App icon is very big. It should like Apple Photos and iTunes icon size.

It is always offline

You need to be refereshing the app manually every time. Takes ages for it to come to life and the indian boy doesn’t respond to messages. Would not recommend.

Not bad, but where is search function??

Close to the original web interface of Google Keep but lack of seaching function made this app very inconvenient

Notifications doesnt work

I have Notes set up on my desktop, iPad and iPhone. I have notifications set up yet when I write a note, nothing shows up on the other devices, unless I launch the app on those devices, then it will show up in the note app, and on my notification screen. It does not show up automatically as I would have expected it to.

Doesn’t work well on Mac OS X

The app has been working as intented on IOS (iphone) but on my OSX Macbook it’s always a struggle as it loses connectivity constantly - and I almost never online. I will look for other apps to sync notes between devices

NO OFFLINE ACCESS!!

How on earth can I access my notes while I’m offline! this app is a waste of money! The interface is so buggy, I have to resize the app window to be able to see the notes properly. If there’s a Zero-Star rating, I wouldn’t think of selecting that for a second!

great google keep app

i don’t know why it’s so hard to find a good Keep app but this is the one. i had a request and they responded right away! good dev.

Good App

It is a good app that makes it easy to access notes kept in keeper. The only suggestion I have is more of a personal preference - I would love the icon in the menu bar to be able to be black so it blends in with all my other ones. It’s the only color icon I have up there and it drives me crazy.

webpage mockup

not what I expected. It’s basically a stripped web page. Refresh and updates take a while to take affect. Meh….

As good as it gets

I have been trying out the other google keep apps. This one fits the bill. It does all the things the phone app does as well and keeps running in the background. I have not had any sync problems. Thank you.

Does not work with two-factor authentication

Downloaded and tried logging into my Google account but once the two-factor authentication prompt comes up the app just reverts back to enter your e-mail.

It does what you’d expect, with caveats

IT WILL CONSUME SYSTEM RESOURCES. A GOOGLE DESKTOP CLIENT FOR G-KEEP IS NON-EXISTENT. THIS APP IS THE COMPROMISE. Search the App store for Googl Keep desktop client and this is the most likely candidate for an unobtrusive, Google Keep sync list for your desktop. KEEP THIS APP CLOSED unless you want to dedicate all your RAM to keeping a notes app always in the background. This app is a resource behemoth, I keep it closed and when I need it I open with Spotlight keyboard shortcuts OR use Hazel app OR Alfred app to quickly open this app and take a note.

great update

I am very happy to see the app is working fine again. The 2step verification was fixed in this update which i contacted the dev for. And they responded rightaway. A worthy Google keep app to have in my Mac.

OFFLINE ISSUES!!!

When you write a note offline it says that it saved it offline. However, when you go back online again your note disappears! I’m looking for an app that can replace the OSX notes app, and if I can’t write notes offline, this keep client is no good. I’m not gonna ask for my money back because this app looks really promising, I really hope future updates fixes this soon. FYI, Im using a late 2012 basic MBP 13" retina. With latest OSX version.

offline option?

This app is ok and it looks good, but it has one big minus: if you lose internet access, you also lose access to all your notes, which is terrifying. This is not the case with the mobile version. In the mobile version you are able to open, modify, add, delete and do other work on your notes while offline. In this app you can’t even open your notes offline, let alone work on them! Without the offline option, this app is more like a toy and not something you can rely on. Please fix!

Best for Google Keep

If you’re wondering which of these apps is the best for Google Keep then you’ve found it! It’s working great for me :)

Spectacular App with one HUGE flaw!

Great App. Does not cache your notes for offline use. Deal breaker for me.

crashes frequently on High Sierra

the app is useful given it allow a menu bar option to create google notes but the app continues to crash everytime i create a note or try to sync.

Update a step backwards

I’ve asked the developer before to fix the app’s window memory state when closing/opening the program. He’s taken a step backwards with the latest update (9/22/17). It now opens with a tiny window each time it’s opened. I shouldn’t have to adjust the window size EVERY TIME I open the program. And like another reviewer has pointed out; STOP nagging me with a pop-up notice to review the app!

DO NOT UPDATE

After the most recent update I can’t even open this app anymore. All that pops up is a window saying “Notes for Google Keep quit unexpectedly” and asks if I want to ignore, report a problem, or reopen the app. No matter which option I choose it never opens up. I love this app and used it on my computer all day every day, but this is rediculous...

Adequate to poor

It was adequate before, but recent update doesn’t allow it to opeh at all!

You-Should-NOT-Have-Updated

I would have given you 5 stars. I love this app and use it everyday. Or at least you wouldn’t have gotten a 1 star. 1. Why on earth is the window so tiny - that is crazy, I am using this on a Mac. The size should stay the way they user sets it. 2. The rate my app - I can not stand it when any developer pops up a rate my app box. That is so pathetic. If people have an opinion and they want to give it they will. Once or twice is totally respectable - over and over is beyond irritating. Please, please fix the sizing thing. I use this app to organize my blogging notes. I picked it because of the clean look and I thought it was ideal for my purpose. I have been using it for a while now. I will gladly change my rating if the sizing is improved. All the way to 5 stars! Thanks.

Doesn’t work well on mac - don’t buy.

Keeps freezing up. Doesn’t scroll. You are better off saving your money and just using the web version.

Very glitchy

Slow and glitchy on MacBook Air. I’ve reverted to using the website format because it’s not worth using this app.

Not functional on mac

I love google keep - I use it all the time on my PC desktop and even on my macbook. However I would not recommend wasting money on buying this app. I have a brand new macbook and the app freezes constantly to the point that it is not even useful. Like you click on anything an it freezes. I thought it would be nice to have my lists in the background of the screen but its not nice at all because of the slow-ness. Maybe they will fix the glitches at some point and the app will work better.

doesnt work on my macbook

I like this app for my iPhone 6 plus but when i tried to get it for my macbook pro it freezes up every time i try to open it. so i deleted it the same day i purchased it. wasted $2.99

Quality Issues

Unresponsive most of the times. I have almost stopped using it and switched back to the online application. I don’t recommend

Works Great

I use Microsoft Notes and it works great and I still use it for certain things, it is a powerful Note program, I don’t need all that power. This is perfect for what I need and it works and syncs across all platforms, iPhone, Mac, Pixel (android). Just what I needed.

Continued use doesn’t refresh.

I, unfortunately, had to change my rating/review. I thought this would be an incredible companion for the Mac, since I use Google Keep constantly. It’s an awesome idea because there is no native Google Keep desktop app for the Mac. It doesn’t update anything across my devices. When I hit the refresh button, it doesn’t update according to what my other devices have. It worked at the start, but then when I started adding or changing notes, it became unusable. It is like the cache doesn’t refresh with the refresh button. Hopefully, the next update will fix this. I want to use this app!

Crashes a lot

I love what i can do with this app. It crashes ever other time I open it. Not sure why.

BROKE

poor peformace is when it is in DARK MODE. Works ok in LIGHT mode. Please fix DARK mode. Thanks

Great

Great app! No issues.

Can’t access work account

I can access thru Google chrome with no issues but when trying to via this application it won’t ever connect. Any Google app i try works great with my work account but this one. Not sure why it isn’t working buy the point of downloading this was to utilize the non web based features, but now i can’t.

Love the idea. Could use some work.

Main challenge? When the app is minimized up in my menu bar and I click on it, the small screen that comes up cuts off the option to oppen the app. If I click on the icon a number of times, the screen keeps reopening and slowly moves to the right as to expose the button I need.

Great App, Needs to be restarted often.

Great app. I like the ability to share notes in realtime with collegues. I like how I can attach screenshots, tab out notes and label sections. All very useful when referring back to my notes. My issue is that when it’s running for an hour idle, the program will freeze and I will need to restart. Also, going from one note to another will usually cause it to freeze and I need to restart the program. Slightly frustrating, but still a useful app.

Frustrating

While I love the idea of the app, it’s very buggy. Any time I open a note I cannot see any of the changes I type until I close the note. I actually paid for this? I find myself going back to the web version and I’m frustrated that this app has great potential but poor execution.

I want to love this app but it’s too much of a memory hog

I love using this app, however, I only have 17 text notes in Google Keep and this app is using 450-625mbs of memory. My Evernote has 4,595 notes that consist of text, images, documents, etc… Evernote is only using 300mbs. This would be such an incredibly wonderful app if the memory issue was fixed.

Exacly what I was looking for!!

I wanted the ability to write Keep notes from the menu bar…..perfect!!!

Web Link in note do not work

Most of my notes include Web link. Web links appear to be clickable in the note but it does not work and do not open a web page. I spended 3 dollars for nothing, I will stick with the Chrome app extention witch is free

Seamless translation from their smartphone app

The app works very well, no issues so far. The quality of the app is up to google standards. If you use google keep already on another device, there is no dropoff. Definitely worth the download.

Some features do not work right

The app is a simulated mobile browser and because of this if the window is smaller it thinks it is an iphone and the sidebar comes up and obstructs the whole view.

Data is not properly saving

I have been using this app for a few days now, and have had an issue on two occasions where it appeared that a note was saved when in fact it was not. One such note I had open all day and continued to make updates throughout the day, only to refresh the app the next day and see all of my changes missing! Very disappointing. I would love to discuss my issue with the developer, but the only way to do so is through Facebook and I don’t use Facebook. Is there an email address that I can send a support request to?
