Google has today made its popular note taking app Keep available on iOS for the first time, meaning iPhone and iPad owners can now get in on the Google Keep action a couple of years after it first launched on Android and web.

Combining note taking, task management and journaling into one app, Keep is similar to Evernote and Apple’s newly updated Notes app in iOS 9, with things like photos and images able to be saved within notes. Add in the usual text based input as well as voice recognition and a raft of customization options for the notes themselves, and Keep has the potential to be a real force in the market. The addition of an iOS app to Google Keep’s arsenal can only improve its chances as it makes it truly cross-platform.

As with all of these kinds of apps, Keep features realtime collaboration capabilities for those working in teams, and the app also takes advantage of location based reminders.

Main features of Google Keep from its own app description on the App Store reads:

Find what you need, quickly by searching and filtering your notes by color and type like images, audio and text. You can also add labels to help you organize your thoughts

Set time or location-based reminders so you won’t forget to swing by the dry cleaners or miss an item on your shopping list

Do more, together by sharing your notes so you can divvy up the packing list and watch as the items get checked off in real time.

Free to download and also available as a web-based solution as well as the aforementioned Android app, Keep is now available to download from the App Store and will sync data across all devices seamlessly.
