Google Keep updated with time, location-based reminders, minor UI update


Google Keep was an interesting addition to Google Drive. Keep lets you sync notes and lists between your devices. It was something I had always wanted from Google, so I was thrilled to get this service. But it was missing one thing compared to the competition: reminders. Not anymore.

Google Keep for Android has been updated with two types of reminders you can use: time-based or location-based. Location-based reminders are extra cool; Keep can open your grocery list when you walk into the store, for example. Notifications will allow you to postpone those reminders or change them altogether.

The small UI change is a new slide-out drawer from the left, just like all Google apps have. It’s a small thing to bring the app in line with all other Google apps, which is nice. It also brings easy account switching. And lastly, Google added the ability to add existing photos to notes. It’s a nice little addition, considering the previous limitation of taking photos was a little ridiculous. Tell us what you think of this update as soon as you get it, which should be soon!
