Main interface

Google Keep opens up to a grid of your notes and simple toolbar up top. The interface is clean and easy to use.

Sometimes it stays pinned to the top. Other times it disappears without warning. Google Keep's toolbar needs to learn to behave itself.

Landscape mode

It's always a pleasure to see an app work just as well in landscape mode. Also note that the toolbar is pinned to the top of the screen.

Voice notes

Hit the voice button and start speaking. Google Keep will transcribe what you say and include it in the note. If you're using a device running Android 4.2 or higher, it will even keep a recording of what you say embedded in the note.
