Manage your day in Google Keep

Shares

I must say I use Google Keep more than I thought I would. I have an Evernote account and I think it a great application, which I do use daily. The two applications have similarities and different users will definitely see different strengths in both. But I digress, this video is not about Evernote, it’s about Google Keep.

Simple. That’s how I would best describe Google Keep. If you have ever used sticky notes, you will get the idea.  Once you start playing with Google Keep, you’ll figure it out quickly.

I think the three neatest features that it offers are: sharing, optical character recognition (OCR), and labeling. Again, once you execute the function the first time, you will remember how you did it.

So what will you see in the below video?

  • Create a Note
  • Searching & Labels
  • Sharing
  • OCR & Copy to Google Doc

This is a very easy feature to use within your Google Drive. Take a look at the short video tutorial on how to use OCR in Google Drive.
