Google Keep adds app shortcuts, pinned messages in update

Keep continues to grow into a more comprehensive service for keeping track of all those random thoughts and ideas.

Now you really can stick a pin in it.

Google Keep now lets you save important messages to the top of the app with a handy, little pin icon. And if you have a Pixel or Android 7.1, you’ll be able to jump to a specific action through app shortcuts. Just touch and hold on the new, circular icon and you’ll have several options to choose from.

Jump right into a specific action with the new app shortcuts.

Also, you can touch and hold on any of these and pin that task straight to your homescreen. It’s one of several new features that first debuted in the Pixel.

In Keep you’ll find a pin icon inside of notes as well as at the top of the main group of notes when you touch and hold on one.

You can pin a note to the top of Keep from inside of the note itself or the main interface.

You can grab the latest update from the Google Play Store or APK Mirror.

The impact on you: Keep may not have as expansive of a feature set as OneNote or Evernote, but it might be just right for your needs. There are several good tips and tricks that just might make Keep the only note-taking app that you’ll need.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
