Google Keep is a web-based service that allows users to create and manage to-do lists, set reminders, and take notes. It is available on the web, as a Chrome extension, and as a mobile app for Android and iOS devices. Google Keep offers a variety of features that make it a useful tool for both individuals and businesses.
What is Google Keep?
Google Keep is a free online note-taking and to-do list app that can be accessed from any web browser or from the Google Keep on mobile devices. Keep is perfect for quickly jotting down ideas, creating to-do lists, and even saving web articles or images for later.
One of the best things about Keep is its flexibility. You can use it for simple tasks like making a shopping list, or for more complex projects by creating multiple notes and color-coding them. It also integrates with other Google apps like Calendar and Gmail, so you can easily add tasks or notes to your existing workflow.
Is There a Desktop App for Google Keep?
If you're using Google Keep, odds are you're using it through your web browser. The truth is, there is a desktop app for Google Keep, it's just not made by Google. Instead, we recommend Wavebox.
Wavebox is a desktop app that consolidates all of your web apps into one place. That includes Google Keep, of course, but also Gmail, Google Drive, Google Docs, and any other web app you use on a daily basis. It's like a one-stop shop for all your internet needs, and it's BETTER than using each app in your web browser because it:
- uses less RAM
- is more stable and crash-resistant
- has built-in notifications
- supports multiple accounts
Unlike using keep.google.com in the browser, Wavebox gives you a true desktop experience. That means you can create your notes, and todo lists, use keyboard shortcuts and even add a shortcut to your desktop to open Google Keep with a single click.
So if you're looking for a desktop app for Google Keep, we highly recommend Wavebox. It's the best way to experience Google Keep, and it'll make your life a whole lot easier.
