Google Keep gets long-awaited labels and recurring reminders
Google Keep’s latest update for Android makes it a much more useful note-taking and reminder app with the long-awaited arrival of labels and recurring reminders. In line with the Lollipop design language, the update also delivers a handy new floating action button.
For me — and plenty of others — a note-taking app without labels isn’t a real-noting app. I make so many notes that having the ability to filter them with simple keywords is a must; it makes finding entries related to a certain project or task a whole lot easier.
Keep has been without them for all this time, but with its version 3.1 update — which is rolling out now via Google Play — they’re finally here, along with a Lollipop-style floating action button. And for those who use Keep as a reminders app, there’s an even greater addition.
With support for recurring reminders, you can now create tasks that are automatically regenerated at set intervals. So if you forget to put the bins out on a Sunday night, Keep can now remind you every week — without you having to recreate each reminder individually.
Like all Google app updates, this one is rolling out in phases, so if you don’t see it yet, you will soon. And if you don’t already have Keep, it’s a free download from the Play Store via the link below.
