Google Keep Gets Update, adds many features

Google Keep recently received an update which brings with it a lot of new changes, improvements and additions. It has already rolled out, so check your Google Play store and make sure you update to the new version.

In keeping with the app’s icon, this might hint to Google assigning a color for each of its basic apps. In fact, if you are a Google Play Newsstand user, you’ve likely already noticed its new blue theme.

Another really important feature that hasn’t gotten a lot of attention yet is the ability to search within images. Google Keep can now find printed text in your images and even find a string of text within an image. Even though it’s just listed as a small improvement, I see this as having the potential to making a big difference in day-to-day use.

With this update, when you delete items they will not be deleted instantly and permanently; instead, they will linger in the trash can for a bit longer, just in case you delete something by accident.

And finally, if you frequently use lists, this feature has also been improved. Now, when you make a list you can select where checked items are placed – they can either move to the bottom of the list or stay where they are. This can make management more useful, helping to prevent clutter.

Apart from the huge printed text locator, the biggest change you will notice is a change in the design. Get the app here and take it for a test run yourself.
